Tell-A-Vision Manifests Television

Here’s an “asked and got” story from my friend “Matt.” Matt wanted a new TV, a big flat screen he could use for gaming and kicking back with his favorite shows. He dreamed of owning the TV, but he didn’t have the money to make it happen. He decided to save by doing without other things he typically spent money on, like better lunches during his work week.

He told his fiancée and his family about his vision. To help him out, they secretly planned to pool their resources for his June birthday. Matt discovered the plan and how much they were willing to contribute. When he added all the funds together, he had enough to buy a $600 TV with a 40” flat screen. Matt, however, had his eye on a larger 46” model and decided to hold off.

Last week, he looked at his checking account on-line, and lo and behold, his tax refund hit. Suddenly, he had enough to buy the larger TV. He went to the store and found two TVs he liked. Matt asked the salesperson if there was an incentive to help him decide. The salesman revealed that Matt could get a free Blu-ray with the Sony, which also had more features than the competing choice. They made the deal. Matt got his TV along with a grin on his face that won’t quit.

Matt set a goal and stuck to it. He also shared his dream. If Matt had said nothing, he would still be several hundred dollars and dozens of lack-luster lunches away from owning the TV. Speaking up allowed him to manifest his desire sooner and he is now enjoying his latest video game two months before his birthday. Matt asked and Matt got.
