I was going to write about how to tell when someone is lying, but I decided against it. It’s a negative way to start off.
Instead, I wanted a positive note. But first, let me cover some personal finance…Are you ready?
One of the most important cand personal finance lessons I ever learned was this from Dan Kennedy:
The Hole You Give Through Is Equivalent to the Hole You Receive Through.
So, what does that mean exactly? What it means is that if you are a stingy “giver,” the way the laws of the universe work dictate that you’ll be the last to receive and you’ll also receive the least.
You’ve heard of the saying, “What comes around goes around?”
That’s what I’m talking about.
In the grocery store when you’re in line, you see the jars with the small holes to slip coins in. Then, maybe you’ll see one that has no lid. Guess which one AUTOMATICALLY gets more CASH and more coin thrown into it?
THE ONE WITHOUT A LID. The one with the largest hole on top wins. Why? The small lid with the small hole makes it tough to slip large bills into, right? What smart charities have learned is this: The more that goes in, the more that charity or cause can give out.
So, how big is the hole you give through? Have you thought of increasing the size of it?
Be cautious but be comfortable GIVING. It’s like my philosophy: Be a good BUYER and you’ll be rewarded with having good buyers come to you.
My best clients are the best clients of a lot of places. I’m a best client of a lot of places. Thus, I get rewarded with a lot of great clients who buy a lot.
The minute you send money off to someone that can use it you’ll be rewarded with someone coming in to see you that NEEDS dentistry and is willing to pay for it. It’s a strange phenomenon, and I can’t explain it, I just know that’s how it has always worked…
