“Some Will, Some Won’t, So What, Next!” So What?

Become enlightened by this week’s Oliver’s Twist by Mike!

Do you use the expression “Some will, some won’t, so what!”?

If you do, as you say the words, how do you intuitively feel? What does your “gut” say to you?

Do you feel comfortable because it’s really your truth, or do you have a feeling of discomfort that you’ve adopted someone else’s truth or industry language that doesn’t resonate with you?

Personally I’ve never cared for the expression. For me it smacks too much of ego, bravado and the negative interpretation of – “posturing”.

No matter how it’s said… (try saying it with love and then say it while pounding your chest like Neanderthal man!) … it just doesn’t feel aligned with the rhythm of life. Saying “So what” implies a lack of caring and I think that most of us do care.

As many of you know, I’m a student of words as they convey powerful messages that are both hidden and direct. I believe we must be careful of the words we use as they all start with a thought. People will tune into your thoughts and intentions via the words you use. Whether you know it or not, your words ultimately give you away. You can’t escape it!

In chapter 11 of my book, “How To Sell Network Marketing Without Fear, Anxiety Or Losing Your Friends!” I talk more about how your thinking is reflected in the words you say.

A Buddhist monk once explained to me that, in the Buddhist tradition, everything begins with a feeling or a thought. So it’s important to…

  • Watch your thoughts: They become your words.
  • Watch your words: They become your actions.
  • Watch your actions: They become your habits.
  • Watch your habits: They become your character.
  • Watch your character: It becomes your destiny.

Similarly, using words or expressions like “Some will, some won’t, so what!” have the subtle impact that is not going to be helpful in building your business and the future that you desire.

So, instead of ending with “So what”… how about… “Some will, some won’t, and that’s OK”?
