So far, in three of the workshops that I attended, the speaker asked the people in the audience to be the first one to come up and take the money or trade it. The result is people rushing forward to take the money.
I understand that they want to bring across the point “successful people take action”, but it seems a rather crude way to bring home this point. In fact, the speakers may be indirectly shaming those who decided to not come up to take the money.
There are a number of reasons why some choose not to take action in this scenario:
- Having to scramble to get money can be rather demeaning and insulting.
- We choose to give chance to others who want the money, and we trust that there are other ways or opportunities to get money.
