Find out if the person is in the right mood or state

This is one important thing that you need to take note of and one of the most important steps that you should take. You should not just walk up to someone or message the person out of the blue because the person promised you money.

You need to be sure the person is in a good mood before you ask. That is the ideal way to ask when someone has not paid you money owed. 

Most times, when someone is in a good mood, you have a better chance of getting what you want. That is why you need to be sure that the person is in a good mood before you ask for the promise the person made. 

Once you are sure that the person is in a good mood, you can go ahead to remind him about the promise he made. . Later in this article I will share some sample messages that you can use to remind someone who promised you money.

If you choose a louder tone, the person may not even listen to you at all. A calm tone always gets the job done easily. With any of the sample messages I will share later in this article, you will know the right way to ask. 

Find out if the person is facing any difficulties

Sometimes people may be going through a lot and facing difficulties, but you may not know because the person did not tell you about it.

If the person is going through difficulties, he may not be able to give you what he promised, that is why you need to find out if the person is facing any difficulties. 

Sometimes, the person will be willing to tell you if you both are a bit close and the person can open up to you. To do this, you need to start a conversation with the person and ask him how he is doing.

That way, the person will understand that you are also concerned about how he is doing and that you are not just concerned about the money you want to get from the person. 

If you do this, the person will even be willing to help you more. This is a good approach you can use, using this, you will get what you want faster. 

Observe the person lately

You need to observe the person lately to see if the person is in the right state to be asked for what he promised you. When you watch the person lately, you will be able to tell if the person is in the right state to be asked such a question. 

Not caring if the person is in a good state or not is selfish, it communicates that you only care about what the person can do for you, and you do not care if the person is doing fine or not. This is a good step.

Do not go too direct

If you want to ask someone something that has to do with money, you do not have to go so direct, you may need to greet the person first and maybe ask how he is doing.

Try to start a conversation with the person first and let the person know that you also care about his well-being and you are not just there for the money the person wants over you.
