Is Your Marketing an Ugly Duckling?

swan swimming in the waterWe’ve all heard the story about the ugly duckling.

Amongst the other ducklings, the ugly duckling stuck out like a sore thumb. He didn’t ‘fit in.’ Nothing the other ducks did worked for him, and he began to feel isolated.

He just couldn’t get it right, what was he doing wrong?
He tried to act more like the other ducklings, and they just laughed at him.

The harder he tried the worse it got. He didn’t feel good about himself. Now his physical appearance was changing to, and he wasn’t growing like the other ducks. He just must be an ugly duckling.

Then one day as the season changed and the lake grew warmer, he saw a magnificent sight.

A beautiful swan.
Behind the swan was a whole group of ‘ugly ducklings’ just like him.
“I am a swan!” he yelled, flapping his wings and splashing about. “I will be a beautiful swan someday soon too!”
Saying goodbye to his duckling family, he went over to join the swans.

Now his life is enriched, and he is where he belongs.
