Red and Black: The Chip Theory

Greetings Happy People,

Before I get started on my latest blog, I want you to think of two different people.

The first person I want you to think about is someone you can really count on. Someone that is there for you. Someone you can rely on in clutch moments. And someone that is dependable, reliable, and trustworthy. Think of the person you know that takes action in whatever they do. It could be a friend, a romantic partner, or someone at work. Do you have that person in mind? Good!!

Now I want you to think of another person. I want you to think of someone that you cannot rely upon. Someone that talks a good game, but never delivers. Someone that flakes out on every moment in your life. Someone that is irresponsible, unreliable, and downright shady. Think of the person you know that will not do anything to help you out. It could be an ex-lover, a former friend, or someone at work. Do you have that person in mind? Good!!

Now when you think of these two people, you will notice a great disparity between them. One is in a positive light, while the other is in negative darkness. While one puts you into the black, the other will have you seeing red. The more these two people do their things, the further the distance they are from each other. What would be a good way to describe this philosophy? How about “THE CHIP THEORY.”

The Chip Theory is something that can be defined in the following banking ideology. If one person does something good, they will establish credit. The more good that person does, the more credit that person will establish. People with stronger credit will not only look good to other people, but also look good to themselves. They are the ones you can rely on to get the job done.

Unfortunately, the Chip Theory has a negative aspect. If one person does something bad, they will establish a debt. The more bad that person does, the greater the debt will become. People with negative credit will have a tendency not to be relied upon. They will be seen as negative, doubtful, and undependable. Hence, they will be the ones you cannot trust to do anything!!

No matter where you are, no matter what you do, you can see the Chip Theory in action. Whether it is in your life or someone else’s, you will notice the people that either have the strong debt or the stronger credit. If you are in any form of management, you will get a better understanding of this message. Why? Because they can determine the type of team you will have. If you have a team with positive credit, you will have success. If you have a team with negative credit, you will have failure.

If you are a person with bad credit, does this mean that you will stay there for the rest of your life? OF COURSE NOT!! You can get out of the red and into the black!! How? Just make those simple steps to earn your credibility. Do the right things, be responsible in your actions, and just stay the course. Once you do this over, and over, and over again, you will find yourself in the black as soon as you think.

So if you know someone that is always reliable, dependable, and is ready to get any job done, always keep them in your favor. They will be the ones that will help you get to where you want to - you no matter where the CHIPS lie. As long as you are able to master and understand this theory, you will live way better than you even expect to.

That is all I have for now. Take care and thank you for your time and attention.
