You Can’t Coupon Your Way to Prosperity

Posted By: Randy GageJanuary 23, 2021

Prosperity can never be obtained with poverty consciousness; it requires prosperity consciousness. This means you understand prosperity is a value-for-value exchange that benefits both parties, whether giver or receiver, buyer or seller. 

Prosperous people are always willing to pay fair market value for the things they want and need. They don’t pass up savings when offered, but that is not the sole basis for making their buying decision.

People with poverty consciousness think they can somehow scrimp, chisel, or discount their way to prosperity, but that effort is fruitless. There are situations where negotiating is expected, such as garage sales, car dealerships, and real estate transactions.  But people with poverty consciousness feel every price should be negotiated, every offer counter offered, even places where it’s never appropriate. They’ll spend 30 minutes searching online for one-dollar-off coupon – oblivious to how the time (and energy) they spend obsessing over coupons and discounts could be redirected to actually manifesting more prosperity in their lives. 

Prosperous people would rather spend their time creating more value, which manifests as greater prosperity. They don’t obsess over coupons, discounts, or bargaining – and they never look for unfair ways to exploit others.  Be happy to exchange value for value for all the possible good which comes your way.

Peace,

  1. Ignorance is what we're here to transmute, conquer, transcend, etc.. and what seems like the prosperous path, is sometimes clouded by perceptual filters..

    our work it to debunk the "illusions" and see what stands up as Prosperity in the physical world. Illusion #1 - and it's incredibly convincing if we go by the metrics of "our physical eyes".. is that is IS a physical world.. It's NOT.. it's a SPIRITUAL WORLD demonstrated as a physical world.

  2. I'm of two minds for this, love to get a deal and save money, on the other you get what you pay for.. I'm doing a post on a chef in Napa, and their Valentine's deal is dinner for two for $225 before wine, and the web gal exclaimed, oh this looks really good, but expensive.. and I said, I know it seems it, but it's really not for a great dinner like that for two in Napa.. last summer I bought 5 short sleeved Polo shirts at a $100 apiece, my mother would have had a heart attack if I told her I did that.. but they're really good quality, look and feel great and as silly as it is, people give you that extra respect when they see that polo player logo on your shirt.. cheers David

  3. A while ago I realized that my service could use a facelift, particularly in regards to quality. It wasn't that I lacked quality, it's just that I knew I wanted to blow my competition away, and raising the quality of the service would be a sure way to accomplish this. However to do this meant investing more into each client, which ultimately meant having to charge more. With such a status quo in the market in regards to pricing, I felt that I might be pricing myself out of jobs if I raised my rates to be commensurate with the level of service I wanted to provide. I decided to go for it... I started taking better care of the client, looked more deeply into what it meant to genuinely provide increased value, took on less clients so I'd have more time to dedicate to each of them. I also increased my rates significantly from what they were, while still remaining in a palatable range. I began providing more valve, worked at a less frantic pace, and was getting paid better to do it. Looking back it was the best move I ever made. It's like I auto-aligned with the people who get it, while the "bottom-feeders" just looking for something on the cheap simply fell away. I now work mostly with higher-end clients who will gladly pay for a better service, as long as the value is there, which it is. The quality of the interaction overall is better, as the people who I generally work with have what Randy would call an increased "Prosperity Mindset". This elevates me and my mindset, and has the added side-effect of positioning me in front of different types of interesting people, including a whole new world of opportunity...you could call it a snow-ball effect for quality. It's now apparent to me that it usually just takes the genuine desire to go to that place, and taking the first one or two steps in that direction. The "universe", if that's what you want to call it, will usually get the hint and cooperate with you.
