This is how you become a cash magnet.
Today, we are going to talk about one of the main reasons why successful people seem to get more successful as time goes by… What is their secret? Is there some magic formula that they use to attract success?
All the answers and more in today's episode.
So I wanted to talk to you about keeping your word. You don't actually realize how important it is until, you know, a while, until you're faced with some situations. Right. So everybody has this, you know, this or these friends who always, like, promise you stuff. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Don't worry. I'm going to do it.
And then they always let you down. So they will do that for a given period of time. And then afterwards, what will happen is that you're not going to call these people if there is something interesting going on. You know, you can't count on these people. You don't want to be the person that people call unreliable and are not going to call you for stuff because they know that, well, this guy's not going to show up or anything.
So if you're true to your word. Right. And you basically say, oh, you know what? Let's do this. And you show up and you actually do it regardless if it works or if it doesn't work, it will be beneficial for you in the future. OK. Because you're showing that you have character. So don't do it just because you want to prove something. Do it because that's the right thing to do.
People are always, always complaining that, oh, why did the rich get richer and why the poor get poorer.
So let me explain something. These rich people, as you call them, you know, let's say there was this, uh, this project you worked with the guy, the guy shows up, does amazing work. Does everything he or she said was going to do and the projects is a success. For example, it could be a success. All right.
What will happen next time you have a project? What do you do? You will call that person. And that person delivers on their promises every single day. So that means that when there is something juicy and a really big opportunity. Who is the person you're going to call first?
Do you think it's the guy who never shows up and never does what he says or the guy that always delivered? So this is the reason why these rich get richer, because they have connections.
It's the most crucial component, to be a person that's reliable. So that means that without you having to put in extra effort and look for opportunities, those opportunities are going to come your way. Because you've shown and you have proved that you're reliable.

But here's the thing. Don't go and say I'm going to do it to stuff you don't want to do because this is one of the biggest problems. Just tell people you don't want to do it. Right. I know it's hard.
So, you know, you need you to lose this habit of saying yes to stuff that you don't want to do. Right. Because down the road, it's going to hurt. I ended up in a lot of situations where, you know, I should have said, dude, no, I'm not interested.
So you ended up in the situations where you have to make up some random excuses and stuff. But then you will become someone who is the person that you can't trust. And if you are easily affected by what people think, you might actually end up thinking that people can't trust you because, well, you suck. And eventually what's going to happen is that you're going to suck.
So that was my main lesson for today is to be true to your word. If you say that you're going to do something, then do it. This is how you make the good connections. And I mean the actual connections. People will like you for who you are and your determination. And this is how you get ahead in life.
