I am going to do something interesting today. I’m going to make you think – which is not something I like to do. In all honesty, I am not really in favor of thinking too much (…or at all). However, I occasionally drag myself into my thinking chair for a couple of minutes. It’s good practice.
“Don’t make rash decisions. Take a deep breath and think about what you want to do”
Moving On To The Agenda
You all know how I love to ask questions, right? Good. Because that’s what I have for you. So, my question is:
You walk into a store and purchase an item worth about $1 with a dollar note. But you are given change for $5 (you are given FOUR dollars). What would you do? Would you walk away $4 richer or return the excess change?
Let me know what you would do in the comments below. But if you are uncertain and need to “think” about it, then join my unknowing guests in their intriguing analysis of the scenario. That’s right. They have no idea we are listening in on their conversation.
That’s because they are completely made up to illustrate a typical mind activity in face of such a question. So, come on…
The “Goodie Shoes vs. Gangster” Mind Clash
Gangster: Do you even have to think about this? I would obviously keep mute. I mean, $4 extra – free of charge!!
Goodie Shoes: Why would you keep mute? It’s wrong.
Gangster: Don’t give me all that “right & wrong” rubbish. It’s not my fault the cashier wasn’t focused on his work. I didn’t steal the money – it was given to me. How is that wrong? It’s all good for me. This is just what I need to buy that video game I’ve always wanted.
Goodie Shoes: If you just walk away, you do know the cashier could get in trouble with his boss, right? I mean, think about it. The sales record will be $4 higher than the actual cash for the day. He’ll be held accountable for it.
Gangster: How’s that supposed to be my problem? Again, it’s his fault not mine.
Goodie Shoes: Yeah, sure. But you had a hand in it. Because you didn’t alert him of it.
Gangster: That’s your opinion – not mine.
Goodie Shoes: Do you believe in humanity? That any good can come from it?
Gangster: I fail to see how that question is relevant to our discussion.
Goodie Shoes: Just answer the question and you will find out.
Gangster: Then, yes, I do.
Goodie Shoes: And correct me if I’m wrong, you would have walked away with that $4 to add to your savings and buy a new game?
Goodie Shoes: Looking at your responses, does your decision make sense to you? You would put this cashier in a position where he can lose his job in exchange for a video game?
I seem to have lost quality connection with their discussion. But I believe what we have heard so far is enough for you to make your decision. If you already haven’t, let me know your choice in the comments below.
AND… before I go, I want to let you in on a little secret. That scenario above actually happened.
Some years back, I was in the same position. To find out what I decided upon and the life-changing discovery I made as a result of it, watch the video below.
