Today I’m going to talk to you about Tony. I met him at one of my early morning networking breakfast things and from the moment I laid eyes on him, I wondered how somebody could be so cheery and maintain such good humour at the ungodly hour of 6.30am.
Why am I telling you about Tony? Because he is a shining example of how we attract what we put out.
Each week at, let’s call it Bacon Butties At Dawn or BAD for short, we have to get up and talk about our business for 60 seconds.
Tony’s 60 second slot is invariably followed by a chorus of low moans and the odd tsk. Why? Because he always recounts some amazing stroke of luck that has befallen him.
Tony has a tailoring business and one week, he’d been with a client in the city taking measurements for a shirt, when an oligarch who shall remain nameless, walked in. Said oligarch ordered £20,000 worth of cashmere scarves from Tony that morning.
This week, Tony told us how he had accidentally dropped one of his business cards at the golf club where BAD meets each week. A man had found it. Not just any man, but one who needed four made-to-measure suits for a spring wedding. He contacted Tony and promptly placed an order. Kerching!
“Money goes to money!” shouted one of the BAD members. They’re right. It does. Certain people attract it. People like Tony. Don’t get me wrong, Tony has years of experience in retail, he’s certainly put in the hours, but what separates him from most of us is that he ‘expects’ money to come his way. That’s the impression he gives anyway.
Some people might say that Tony was born lucky, but I believe a person creates their own luck. Expect good things to come and more often than not, they will.
From now on, I am going to be more like Tony. Watch this space. Kerching, kerching, kerching!
I am fabulous badass. I am a money magnet. I am on the way up! Whoop!
