I saw an amazing thing this week.
A small poster on a telephone pole, written by somebody asking for a job.
Now we’ve all seen a million of those, but this one had one important difference.
The headline was as follows:
FIND ME A JOB AND I’LL PAY YOU $1000.
Isn’t that brilliant?
In just 9 words he had shown how special he was.
He showed he was highly creative.
That he was super keen to work.
That he understood advanced communications.
That he believed in himself enough to put his money where his mouth is.
And perhaps most importantly, he showed he understood one of the great principles: that in this world, if you want to get
something you have to give something first.
I’m sure that guy thought he’d just written a job ad.
In fact, he wrote a superb lesson on how to be successful in life.
