You're How Old?!?

Written by David Leonhardt, The Happy Guy

Continued from page 1

Youth has its own beauty, its own advantages, its own reasons to be admired. So, too, does middle age. In fact, every age is important and every age is beautiful. How old are you right now? (Really, I don't mean "29 again".) Whatever age you are, right now that isrepparttar perfect age -- andrepparttar 132622 perfect age to be proud of.

Oh sure, it is sort of harmless to kid about one's age. And many people joke about it harmlessly. But many of us also have a deep unease about our age and our aging -- an unease that can hold back our self-esteem.

I recall sitting in my pew when it suddenly dawned on me why one member ofrepparttar 132623 all-female choir looked so different. Every lady was at least 40 years old, butrepparttar 132624 other heads were jet black or honey brown or sandy blonde or some other artificial tint. White Top Lady packed a loaded bundle of white hair.

It is not a sin to dye one's hair, as long as we don't do it duringrepparttar 132625 service. It is just one of many ways we adorn ourselves. Butrepparttar 132626 sight of a dozen elderly ladies with hair colors impossible for their age made me want to laugh out loud right there in church. (I resisted.) Allrepparttar 132627 heads would probably have looked normal if White Top Lady's hair had not been screaming out, "I'm proud of my color. I'm proud of my age. I'm not going to hide."

It's time to be proud of everything about ourselves, including our age. So to everybody reading this, "Happy Seven Millionth!"

"Thank you so much for calling and have a great day!"

Instead I got this:

"This is David. You know what to do.

Speak afterrepparttar beep..."

Like I said, I don't know David from a bar of soap.

I wouldn't recognize him if my life depended on it.

I do know one thing about him though.

He's wasting money.

Judging byrepparttar 132619 size of his advert quite a lot of it!

You see David's advert spoke QUALITY It spoke "Hey you can TRUST us... we CARE..."

His voice-mail SHOUTED 'Cheap and nasty'

the result?

...David Wasted His Money Today ...David Lost A Sale Today ...David Made Less Profits Today ...David Missed Out On Referrals Today ...David Missed An Opportunity Today

Try this: Take a moment to call YOURSELF today.

Listen carefully to your business voice-mail or answering machine.

What you change...

Just might be worth a small fortune!
