WHO WANTS TO BE RICH?



It’s very common for people to say ‘Money doesn’t bring you happiness’. They point to the very public problems of wealthy people and the evident misery some of them have. Money, the theory goes, makes them superficial and selfish, their lives often fall apart, and they miss out on the simple pleasures of life. Money is their top priority and because of this, they’ve got it all wrong.

Attitudes to the rich are also characterized by hatred. Typical images of wealthy people are that they are greedy, cruel people who’ve got what they’ve got by exploiting or abusing other people. The rich are often seen as bad characters whose pursuit of wealth has led them to treat good people with brutal force and whose behaviour has been either morally questionable or completely corrupt. They can’t have got that rich by honourable methods, the thinking goes, they must have done something truly inexcusable.

Connected with this is a common belief that some of the rich, especially the young ones, don’t deserve their wealth. Some of them are spoilt brats, benefiting from the wealth of their parents and living empty lives of laziness and luxury, with nothing between their ears. Their lives have been all reward and no effort. And then there are the people in sport and the arts whose immense earnings are well-publicized. Surely, people say, no one can be worth such sums. It’s outrageous that these people get such high incomes for doing what they do.

Even when people aren’t actually rich by most conventional definitions of the word, their lifestyles attract criticism from others. There is among many people a dislike of what they regard as a materialistic attitude to life. When they see people with big houses, luxury cars, and a mass of the top-of-the-range gadgets, they dismiss them as empty, foolish people with the wrong priorities in life. How can they afford these things? Have they got heavily in debt to fund this lifestyle? If so, how silly they are. Of course, some of this feeling can be attributed to envy. Most people have no direct contact with the truly rich, seeing them only via the media, but materialistic people are all around. The truly rich are considered to belong almost to another species, but the materialistic ones might well be in your neighbourhood.

So there’s a fairly common belief that money is ‘a bad thing’, or at any rate, having lots of it. But I think that in this envy and dislike of the rich, people are missing the point. Money’s a big factor in just about everyone’s life. It’s often the only reason they get up and go to work. If you haven’t got it, life is very difficult. You need to get it for food, clothes and shelter, for yourself and maybe others. It’s the main reason why most people work – not for pleasure but to provide the necessities of life. What they are effectively doing is exchanging their time for money.

And this brings us to the key point about wealth. It buys freedom, it buys time. If you’re rich, you don’t have to exchange your time for money, you don’t have to give so much time to an employer or dedicate all that time to the business of earning a living. You can use your time in any way you please, in ways that bring you some fulfilment. If you’re wealthy, you don’t have to be materialistic, nor do you have to be superficial and selfish. These are not iron rules. Disliking the rich because of what you read or learn about some of them in the media results from only a partial view of what having wealth means. Getting annoyed with materialistic people is based on a narrow view of what money brings. Some people squander wealth, some people don’t deserve it, some people want it for reasons you might take a dim view of. But the fact is, wealth provides opportunities for the kind of life you would like to have.



So don’t knock it. Instead, think of ways you might be able to attain it. Focus on the goal of getting yourself into a position where you’re no longer trading your time for money. Take control of your own time by becoming independently wealthy. You might say that’s easier said than done. Well, you might be right, but have you tried yet?

THE SCIENCE OF PERSUASION



Persuasion is key to business and to much more besides. In many walks of life and in many situations, persuading people to do what you want them to do is the key to success. Is persuasion a science with rules that can be taught and learnt, or is it simply a matter of instinct and personal experience? Researchers have looked into different aspects of persuasion and come up with some interesting results.

One advertising copywriter, for example, came up with an approach to selling a product on a TV shopping channel via phones sales that differed from the norm for such advertising. Instead of being instructed: ‘Operators are waiting, please call now’, viewers were told ‘If operators are busy, please call again’. This might appear to have been a risky tactic, putting potential buyers off by suggesting that they would have to waste their time calling repeatedly until they finally got through to someone to take their order. But the results were extraordinary and an unprecedented number of sales resulted. The advert suggested that instead of there being lots of operators sitting there and hoping people would call, there were so many people who wanted the product that people might have to wait until they could get it. This showed just how desirable the product was. Potential customers decided that, if so many other people wanted it, they definitely wanted it too.

What role does choice have in persuading people to buy or get something? One study looked at the choices employees made when offered different retirement programmes. This showed that the more choices people were given, the less likely they were to choose anything at all. Another study in a supermarket revealed a similar effect of choice. A particular supermarket displayed either 6 or 24 different kinds of jam. When there were 24 jams to choose from, 3% of customers went to the display and bought one of the jams. When there were 6 jams on display, 30% of customers did so.

To what extent can fear play a part in persuasion? One experiment involved public health leaflets on the dangers of tetanus infection. Some of the leaflets consisted almost entirely of frightening images of infected people, with a bit of information about infection, while some contained no images at all, only information about infection. Some included information on where people should go to get tetanus injections to protect themselves, while others only gave this information and nothing else. The outcome was that the greatest number of people who went for injections were those who had been given the leaflet with both frightening images and instructions on where for injections. People who had been given the leaflets dealing only with infection did nothing. The conclusion was that fear paralyses people if no solution is offered, but if people are frightened and offered a solution they are motivated to take action.

Research has also looked into the issue of restaurants persuading people who have booked to let them know if they are not going to turn up. This shows that getting people to promise to do something makes them more likely to do it than simply asking them to do it. If the restaurant asks people to call if they can’t make it, 30% of them simply don’t turn up and don’t tell the restaurant. If, however, the restaurant asks them to call if they have to cancel and they reply that they will do so, only 10% fail to notify the restaurant in advance that they will not be coming.



Another aspect of persuasion concerns getting someone to change their mind. Everyone knows how hard this can be. It’s hard to prove to someone that a previous decision was wrong, and as people get older they get less and less willing to change their minds. This is because people want things to be consistent, they want their attitudes, statements, values and actions to follow a set pattern. The only way to persuade them to change is to acknowledge this by agreeing that the previous decision they made was a perfectly understandable one. This allows them to focus on your suggestion without feeling that their previous decision was wrong in any way. As a result, they may be persuaded to break out of their established pattern without feeling uncomfortable about doing so.
