The Waitress is Waiting … for You

Counting the Days, Waiting for Real Life to ArriveSeveral months ago a friend of mine gave me a CD with some songs that he thought I would like. He was right on the money with every selection because I liked them all.

One of the songs was especially meaningful to me. It is called “Waitress,” by the band BOY.

A phrase in the lyrics, “She’s counting the days,” initially made me think of my daughter who was working a summer job out of state at the time and was looking forward to coming back home.

As I listened to the song even closer, it reminded me of how so many people feel these days. They are counting the days, too. Have a listen to the song in the video below.

These lyrics really made me think:

The waitress is waiting
for a thing to explode
for a light to go on
for some sign to show
her time is yet to come.
She’s the counting the days
until real life arrives

Imagine how many people feel exactly like that. They know somewhere deep in their being that there has to be more to life. They are stuck in a dead-end job. They know there’s a way out, but they can’t find it.

Think about all those people you come in contact with every day who have a crappy attitude about life. Perhaps it’s because they have a crappy life and have no idea how to escape from it.

These words from the song also caused me to think.

Every minute feels
just like the one before
no surprise no twists
she wants so much more

I once heard a network marketing trainer say that the people we are looking for are looking for us. I think there are more of those people than ever before.

For many people, every minute feels the same. They want more, but don’t know how to get it. Our job is to show them.

We can only hope that those people realize that real life can actually arrive. If we present our opportunity with no pressure, it can be the thing that explodes for them. It can be the light that comes on at just the right time, the sign that shows their time, their best time, has come.

If you think about those people when you are presenting your network marketing opportunity, your whole attitude will change.

This is not just about business. It’s more than just making money. It’s about life.

It’s not just about making a living. It’s about living.
