My wife is a genius.
Victoria’s Secret used to send us ads with every now and again, usually with a “Free Panty” coupon attach. Of course, the idea is, if you come in and cash it in, you would end up buying something while you were there, whether out of impulse or guilt.
But my wife will not be fooled. She walks in, gets her swag, and leaves with a pink pouch of victory in tow.
Life will always present you with opportunities. The temptation is always to get greedy with them or shy away from them, but there is a third alternative: the quiet strength that empowers you to walk up, claim your destiny, and gracefully walk away.
The choice is yours. The coupon is ready.
