Help or Scare? –
Do people ever try to help you by scaring you first? They might remind you of all the terrible things that could happen and all that could go wrong, and then they offer solutions to stay safe. Personally I don’t need that kind of help. I don’t want that kind of help and since it totally goes against the Law of Attraction, I refuse that kind of help.
I recently made a puchase at a local store. The item seemed great and I assume the manufacturer will stand behind the product if it is defective. However, at checkout the clerk started to list all the things that could go wrong with my new purchase – you know I could even drop it on the way home (was he going to follow me and push me?). I’m sure the clerk didn’t come to this on his own. It was evidently store policy to push warranties really hard. There even may be instances where warranties make sense. The problem seems to be the way they are offered. Creating fear to make a sale is energetically unwise behavior. Remember that, if anyone ever tries to scare you into changing your mind. Hopefully, you will never do that to somebody else.
