“You will not be successful unless you get a cup,” he pointed
out.

There are many lessons we can get from this. Here are a
few.

You need to dress the part
Although it is generally considered over-dressing is better
than under-dressing, it is best to dress the part.

Have the right equipment
Often, we ask people to do something yet fail to give them
the resources they need for success. Properly equipping
someone for your desired outcome will result in better and
quicker outcomes.

Excellent advise can come from anyone
Be receptive to advise from anyone in this case the beggar
had great advise had the situation been as he saw it.

Be prepared
Keep some resources available for the unexpected. This is
important for salespeople or those who go to unfamiliar
places for appointments. In the case of this story, had there
been some research they would have known to have some
coins. Consider what would have happened had there not
been any parking available at all – disastrous results likely
would have resulted.

Life Lessons:
  • Sometimes you appear to be something you are not.
  • Be prepared for the unexpected.
