Change your perspective; change your results

One day, there was a blind man sitting on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet and a sign that read: "I am blind, please help."

A creative publicist was walking by and stopped to observe. He saw that the  blind man had only a few coins in his hat.   He dropped in more coins and, without asking for permission, took the sign and rewrote it. He returned the sign to the blind man and left.
That afternoon the publicist returned to the blind man and noticed that his hat was full of bills and coins.

The blind man recognized his footsteps and asked if it was he who had rewritten his sign and wanted to know what he had written on it.

The publicist responded: "Nothing that was not true. I just wrote the message a little differently." He smiled and went on his way.

Sometimes a slight change in perspective or strategy makes all the difference.  If what you are doing is not working, Change!

Remember, it is not WHAT you say; rather is is HOW you say it.
The new sign read: "Today is Spring and I cannot see it."
