Sometimes I just don’t believe what my four year old daughter says. Occasionally she is trying to get out of trouble! But more often than not she isn’t telling fibs. She has just changed things round a bit. And that is because she is saying what she thinks I want to hear.
I bought a very useful e-book recently. But it wasn’t just the contents that were useful. I was also impressed by the way that the company cared for me afterwards. I received a number of e-mails. They made sure that I was putting the contents of the book into practice. And that I was benefitting from the results. I was so impressed that I had no problem in writing a glowing testimonial when asked. And I recommended the book to others when it was suggested.
The Olympics are coming to the UK soon! Winning a gold medal is the sports person’s dream. So there is a lot of training going on at the moment.
