A couple of weeks ago, I posted about my prosperity experiment. Inspired by the mystery donors who paid off customers’ layaway accounts at K-Mart during the holiday shopping season, I left money anonymously in a number of public places in the spirit of holiday giving. While I didn’t leave the $5 bills to get anything in return, I understand how prosperity works. You give what you get and you get what you give. Since I was sharing my money with others, I knew I would be receiving financial favor, as well.
I didn’t have long to wait. The very first day that I started the experiment, I stopped at Starbucks and was offered a discount on my Egg Nog Latte for no particular reason. I knew immediately that the Universe was signaling to me that this prosperity experiment was exactly what I was supposed to be doing.
A client of mine recently went out of business and was unable to pay me $500 for services rendered. As a result, I wrote the balance off as a bad debt. Today, I unexpectedly received a check from this client for the full $500. How’s that for a return on investment?
