The power of the decision
I just had a call that inspired me to write this message, which will be updated to see the progress of this 12 weeks challenge.
The story began on Facebook with a old friend I haven’t seen over the last 20 years. I opened my FB account in 2010 and reconnected with Rick. We exchanged a little since then and have that virtual relation where you connect once a year to say Happy Birthday…. Our last talk dated from 2013 then yesterday I sent him the following message :
“How much Gold have you saved last month ?
Are you aware of that system online that rewards you with Gold when you introduce people to it ?
I do have answers to any questions you may have :)”
His reply was :
Hi ! Of course I have questions, I know nothing about what you’re saying.. Please explain”
We scheduled the best time to talk and we just spent 40 minutes on the phone. Long story short : Rick is a grandfather at 44, independent worker in the construction during the summer and have plenty of free time during the winter’s…
Rick have accumulated NO savings at all and just started considering doing so. Then I explained the concept of saving gold, gram by gram and it made a lot of sense to him. He immediately opened his free account and I showed him how to proceed going thru the KYC process… Obviously, the question came up : “What’s this thing about rewards to introduce others ?”
I have to mention that Rick is not a computer kind of person, with no email (*incredible huh !) and no knowledge about the virtual world … I lost him while talking “power leg strategy” but everything start making sense when I shared my screen with him and watched real examples from my back office (*I now know he’s a visual)
The magic happened when we started talking about his work contract that will end in 30 days, with him having plenty of free time this summer and the fact that he’s planning to go spend a winter in Thailand.
