Which is Better, Tigers or Money?

Tipping points are everywhere.

The straw that broke the camels back, the one snowflake that causes an avalanche, etc.

Of course, broken backs and avalanches aren't things people generally seek.

But the concept is the same.

You have everything on one side of a seesaw.

And it takes a certain weight to tip the seesaw over.

If you keep adding weight, when you reach the tipping point, the seesaw moves.

This is the exact same process that happens when we make a decision.

Whenever we are contemplating something, we've got a bunch of reasons to NOT do something, and a bunch of reasons TO do something.

We keep going over the both sides (often times subconsciously) until one side is more "powerful" than the other.

The more the two sides are different (pro or con) the easier or "stronger" the decision will be.

For example, if you're at the zoo, and your friend recommends you jumping into the tiger cage to take a selfie, you MIGHT consider the "benefits" (maybe you'd be famous on social media for a day) but then the negatives (getting eaten) would QUICKLY and STRONGLY outweigh the benefits.

Likely in much less than a second.

On the other hand, if you're strolling down the street on a nice day, what happens when you see a hundred dollar bill on the ground?

You may contemplate the negatives for a split second (maybe you're being pranked, maybe it's counterfeit, maybe you're hallucination) but the positives reason to make the decision to reach down and pick it up would QUICKLY overwhelm the negatives.

Whenever we try and influence others, the same rules apply.

Unfortunately, most people go about it the wrong way.

We try and give others reasons to do things according to OUR model of the world.

Like your friend trying to get you to jump in the tiger cage. According to HIS model of the world, that would be pretty cool.

But according to YOUR model of the world, that's a pretty horrible idea.

Alternatively, when you get them thinking in terms of THEIR model of the world, it's a LOT easier.

As easy as picking up money off the street.
