Scammers and marketers know what gets our interest: those words of good news that bait us…you’ve won, you’ve been selected, etc.
A few years ago I owned up to my human craving for good news and started giving it to myself. Might be smarmy, but it works (and is better than the alternative).
- You’ve won. You have been awarded one brand-new day, fully equipped with gravity, air, and water!
- A delivery is waiting for you. Exactly what you need (even if you had other ideas about what that is)!
- You are approved. Just as you are (regardless of what you have been telling yourself)!
- You were selected (to use your gifts in your special way). We are anxiously awaiting your reply!
