Sooner or later the skies become a big topic of conversation with a child A long look coupled with a detailed conversation takes the mentoring dialogue to the really big deal part: Why do some lights twinkle and some do not; why do some seem tiny; some seem large? On the other side of this discussion is the fact that some planets are cold; some stars are hot.
After one such granddaddy conversation, a granddaughter’s affirmative declaration is made: “I want to be a star.” Planets reflect; stars burn. Planets are masses of matter; stars are masses of energy. There is a big difference…especially, when it comes to attitude.
Walking through the shopping mall with that same granddaughter cleverly elicited a new grading system. “She’s a planet; he’s a star. He’s a cold planet; she’s a hot star.” Kids know! They always know the difference between a passionate service person burning up the sky with their passion and enthusiasm to serve. They can also spot a cold planet—just going through the motions while stoically waiting on quitting time. Would your customers assess you as a bright star or a cold planet?
