My family once received an envelope with a message: „You have already won one of these prizes!”. Three things were there.
You were supposed to pay some money, and receive another message: „Again, another one of these prizes is yours!”.
After another member of my family received the same thing, and one person from the Postal office told us that a lot of people receive the same envelope, it was clear – it was a marketing scam, and the prizes which we won we actually paid for by entering a scheme.
But coming back to the message – „You have already won!”. Now, that’s one powerful message.
How would you go to school, considering that no matter what you do, learn hard or less-than, you will graduate? What would you do – learn more or less? Focus on some subjects, or become a jack of all trades?
How will you measure success, considering that you could live your life without fear of survival? Will you work more or less?
This thing – „Winning without a possibility of losing” is one powerful thing.
Going to a football game knowing that your team will win.
This changes the perception.
I’m not sure if it’s a good thing or not, but it’s something to think about.
