The conjurer

My offer? My business?  It’s simple.

Help others put more wins on the board. When people become more successful as a by-product of something I’ve provided, that’s a win for me. When they are not so successful? I’ll try to think of other ways to help those in need.

There is no trickery, it’s pretty straightforward stuff.

There is though, something that will always upset ‘the apple cart’ here.

If people don’t know me well enough, they are not going to believe my offer.

That is the problem. It’s everyone else’s problem in life also, isn’t it? We’re worried that people don’t have our best interests at heart, we worry that someone who acts with kindness, maybe isn’t that kind. They can’t be can they??

It’s the same in business, given that we’re worried about trust in all avenues of life, there is no easy answer. There is though, a word that conjures up hope.

Faith.

I’m one of those guys that believe people are all inherently good people. I act as if everyone has my best interest at heart the way I have theirs. I act as if what people tell me is the absolute truth, no question, no hesitation. This helps me with lots of situations.

Faith.

But there are other things that people conjure:

They will cheat on you.

People will lie!

There are people around who take glee in doing stuff behind your back that isn’t so good …

I accept that it is going to happen, we know it, it’s part of ‘the deal.’

My response to this? I have faith that people will treat me the way I treat them.

I have faith that by doing enough – if not, more than enough and by going out of my way to help people then I’m going to be conjuring up the positive that will come my way over time.

Naive perhaps?

Faith. Our thoughts create reality, make sure you conjure really fabulous thoughts!
