This article title is a little bit misleading in that it says “give bribe to get ahead in life” and we all know that giving or accepting a bribe is a criminal offense in almost every country on earth. At least in all the countries, I have visited. And am not advising you to give some money, items or any kind of kickbacks to get that contract, promotion or job you really want. So, if am not advising you to give bribe as we have come to understand it, why then is the title of this article “Give Bribe to Get Ahead in Life”?
Good question. The first thing we must first understand is the phrase “Bribe”. What is a bribe? A bribe is money or any other valuable consideration given or promised with a view to corrupting the behavior of a person, especially in that person’s performance as an athlete, public official, etc. Another definition for bribe is “anything given or serving to persuade or induce”. So, we have the official definition of bribe as “anything given or serving to persuade or induce”. When I say “Give Bribe to Get Ahead in Life”, I am talking from the premise of “giving something that is non-physical or materialistic to the someone in order to persuade them or win them over to your side”. This bribe is not against the law in any country on earth. This bribe is actually encouraged and for the man or woman who knows how to use this bribe, it will be like “a precious stone in the eyes of its possessor; Wherever he turns, he prospers.” Proverbs 17:8.
What is this bribe? This bribe is an action taken by you, in that you have to induce or arouse in the other person an eager want to help you or the desire to do what you want.
If you can arouse an eager want in another person, you can literally have them doing whatever you want. But there are conditions. Whatever the person is doing for you must the mutually beneficial to the both of you. The transaction must be mutually beneficial.
How to Arouse an Eager Desire in Anyone
Everything we humans do springs from two motives; these motives are (1) The need for sex and (2) The desire to be important. These two things are what motivates everyone on this earth. In this article, I won’t be discussing using sex to arouse an eager want in anyone although thousands of people have used sex to accomplish wonders. I will be discussing how to use the second natural human motive; which is the “desire to be important” to arouse an in eager want in anyone.
If you don’t want to perform a particular task how can I make you perform it? Answer: By arousing an eager desire in you to do the task. If am able to arouse it in you, you will want to carry out a task which you have previously refused to do. My ability to arouse this eager desire in you is the “bribe” that any man or woman that knows how to use it, “Wherever he turns, he prospers.” Proverbs 17:8.
The fact is everyone wants something. So the question now then is “what do you want”? Ask anyone this simple question and they are likely to say I want a mansion, I want millions in my bank account, I want good health and etc. But there is one desire which all these stems from, it is “the need to be appreciated or the desire to be important or feel important”. Even when someone says they want good health, it still stems from this “desire to feel important” because It will be impossible for anyone to feel important if he or she is dying from hunger or illness.
Everyone you come across in life, no matter how highly placed they are or how little their social status might be, they all have “the desire to be appreciated or to be important”. No one is above this. If you doubt this, just go on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter, you will find people from all walks of life, from the millionaires to those who are struggling to pay their rents, doing crazy things on videos just for the “attention” it will draw towards them. That “attention” fulfills their need to “feel important”. You might think a multi-millionaire is surely above this need for attention. You are dead wrong; the millionaires actually spend more time doing crazy Instagram videos than those struggling financially. Like I said before, no one is above this “desire to be appreciated or to be important”.
For you to “arouse an eager desire/want” in anyone whom you want something from, these are the steps you must take:
(1) You must see things from their perspective.
(2) Ask yourself how would the other person helping you be beneficial to them?
(3) Once you’ve answered the question in (2), make the other person aware of how beneficial it will be to them if they help you. [Make it abundantly clear to the other person how beneficial it will be to him/her if they help you].
(4) Find something about them that you genuinely like. It could be anything. It could be their personality, body shape, hair, car or even house. Once you find one thing about the other person that you honestly like, lavish praise on it. Because when you find out something you genuinely like about someone, lavishing praise on it won’t be difficult and your praise will be genuine which is the most important thing. By lavishing praise which is genuine and from the heart, you are actually satisfying the other person “urge to be appreciated or feel important”.
In most instances, for you to instantly arouse an eager desire in someone to do something for you, all you have to do is follow step 4 above.
