“You received a payment.”
I love these four words.
They come in an email whenever someone buys something from me.
Even better they often come in the morning when I first check my email.
What a great way to start the day!
It gives me a lift, little pep in my step and puts a smile on my face.
I then go and do something that will produce more of those four-word greetings.
This is the reason we are in business. Sometimes I think it’s the only reason, but we are human and need to do that other stuff.
Anyway, what makes me curious is why I have never seen anyone else talking about this. Is it embarrassing, declassee?
Not really sure but it is weird.
We are in business to make money. To collect payments in cash, credit or chickens.
Money keeps us safe warm and dry.
So I hope you are doing this, whatever your business is, to hear your version of four favorite words.
A hint for today is that people like spending money. They like giving it to people they like, they like feeling like they are part of something, or getting something, which is why people hand over money.
Along with a hundred other reasons.
And I hope you are set up to receive money, in large overflowing bushels and buckets.
Do something today that will create a reason, or a mechanism or the ability for someone to give you money.
Create an experience, get people excited, teach something people need, feed their hunger whether it be physical, emotional or whatever.
