“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.” – Mark Twain  

Do you tend to agree with popular opinion or are do you typically have an alternate view of any topic?  You know my thoughts on choosing what to do when wondering about a decision.  Look at what the 95%ers are doing and do the exact opposite.  

Why do I react this way?  The biggest reason is once an idea or way of doing things has become popular, all the upside in it is gone.  

By 2007, real estate investing had become very popular.  There were multiple TV shows about flipping houses.  The media was featuring stories about the incredible housing market.  People were leveraging their homes with home equity lines of credit and loans.  People were spending very freely because their house was appreciating so quickly they would be fine to be able to pay these debts.  New homeowners were able to get into homes priced way above their means with interest only loans.

Well you know what happened through 2007 and 2008.  The whole dynamic changed.  The rush of people into real estate now became a huge challenge to the country.  There was the mortgage meltdown as it was termed.  The economy for many sank.  The foreclosure crisis hit.  Overall, the majority did very poorly.  

During this downturn for the 95%ers, who was making money?  The people doing the exact opposite of what the majority was doing.  I know my economy started to take off at this time… and I’m not alone.  As the 95%ers fled real estate, I know multiple investors who made a great living and created generational wealth during this time.  Why was it different for us?

We know the real money and success happens in any opportunity before the masses identify the opportunity.  Successful entrepreneurs get in to ride the wave as its getting bigger.  Once it reaches a sizable height, we know it’s time to look for the next wave before the top of this one curls over on us.  

Knowing this fact is why when you see the masses headed in a specific direction and you are with them, take a minute to analyze what’s going on.  Is the wave growing still or is the lip about come curl over on you and take you under?  

Be aware of what the majority is doing.  Being aware of what the majority is doing is the reason the 5%ers continue to be the 5%ers.  They look for the opportunity where no one else is surfing yet to jump on the next big wave.  Start identifying where the majority is headed and begin searching for other options to create your next success.

Do It Different!

“If you genuinely want something, don’t wait for it – teach yourself to be impatient.” – Gurbaksh Chahal  

Are you impatient about getting what you want?  For probably the first time ever in your life, I will tell you being or creating this impatience is a good trait when used effectively.  

Now typically, most of us have been told to be patient as we have grown up.  I know this was challenging for me at times.  I’m sure you heard the same types of sayings from your parents, family, and teachers.  ‘Patience is a virtue.’ or ‘Good things come to those who wait.’  Ever heard these before or even said these yourself to someone else?  

This is just one more way your mindset can affect your results.  The programming you have received from others teaches you to wait to get the benefits you want.  It’s being programmed into us at an early age.  While this can serve another’s agenda in having you wait for a result without taking any action to make it happen, it definitely slows your results.

As an entrepreneur, teaching yourself to be impatient is a way to motivate yourself to take massive action NOW!  Just think for a minute.  When you have a deadline coming, does it move you faster to make sure the goal gets completed.  I know I work much better against a deadline.  It’s how I have always worked.  When I have a short deadline, my focus is increased.  I take more action steps in this smaller time frame to make sure I’m successful.  The larger number of action steps in a shorter time helps me reach my goals much quicker. 

Now this can also work with your team.  I set aggressive deadlines with my team all the time.  When I create short timelines on projects, it drives them to finish sooner.  When we finish one task sooner, we are able to get to the next one earlier.  Since I use my impatience to set aggressive principle targets, myself and my companies get to more opportunities faster.  Getting to more opportunities adds to the overall success of my companies. 

Do you want more results faster in your life?  Get impatient.  Take more actions now.  You have a great message, service or solution to help out the world.  The only thing you are doing by being patient is cheating them out of the opportunity to realize the benefits of what you offer.  Use your impatience to help drive your business.

“Before I ever knew what the word Entrepreneur was, I realized in America and in the Western part of the world in general, you are given the opportunity to be whatever you want to be. And that is all anyone should ever expect from the Capitalist system. The rest is up to you. 

It’s up to you to educate yourself. 

It’s up to you to learn speaking skills and people skills. 

It’s up to you to try (and usually fail, but to try again) all sorts of ventures. 

The rest is a combination of hard work, being at the right place …at the right time…with the right thing…oh yes…and more (never ending) hard work.” – Gene Simmons  

Do you accept responsibility for what you have or have not achieved in your life?  So many people I meet have an excuse for why any venture did not work… and usually it is far from them taking responsibility for what they did or didn’t do.

One of the most important lessons to internalize for all and especially an entrepreneur is “The buck stops here”.  What I mean is you are responsible for your results.  For everything which needs to be learned or sourced, you are responsible for making sure it happens. 

One of the times I see many people explode their growth forward is when they realize they are the creators of all their results – both good and bad.  When you start living the fact you control your life, the victim mentality starts to leave you.  You become empowered to make the decisions which determine your results.  When success happens, you are the one who did the work, made sure the right people were in place, and took advantage of the opportunities in front of you.

Conversely, if you fail, you are still the person responsible for the decisions.  Accept this responsibility.  It’s part of becoming the success you want to be.  There are only two outcomes from anything – either results or excuses.  Which one do you want in your life?

Step forward and take charge of the direction of your life.  Put in the effort and find the resources needed to create success.  And by all means, take every opportunity presented to you to increase your results.  You will succeed when you decide there is no other option!

“Success, for most people, requires unlearning as much as learning.”– Orrin Woodward  

Are you open to unlearning ideas you have been taught and reinforced for years in your life?  This is immensely important in being able to create the change you want in your life.  

Your first teachers were your parents.  They taught you the best way they knew how at the time with the information they had available.  Now this kind of training can work well when you are Donald Trump and your parents were very successful already and able to show you how to do the same.  

Are your parents currently where you want to be in your future?  I know this can be a challenging question and it is an effective one.  If they have already achieved the goals you want to achieve in your life, then they are the perfect person to follow and emulate.

If what your parents have achieved is different from what you want, you must find someone else to learn from to get where you want to go.  When choosing a mentor, I always look for someone who has already achieved what I want to achieve.  Then I listen to exactly what they are guiding me to do to achieve what they already have and act on the guidance they have provided.

Taking what they say and internalizing it as part of you is your vehicle to success.  This is where the unlearning comes in.  

Most successful people have a very different set of beliefs than the average person.  This different set of beliefs and core values is one of the reasons your chosen mentor has succeeded already while you are still figuring out how to get there.  To achieve the same success, you will want to unlearn the unproductive thoughts and beliefs replacing them with the empowering beliefs and values they are teaching you.

The unlearning can at times cause conflict within you, especially when long held beliefs are the ones which need to be unlearned.  Eliminating the thoughts and beliefs which hold you back are what allows your new growth to take root and support you moving forward.  

You decide how successful you will be based on how accepting you are to unlearn the beliefs which hold you back and replace them with the empowering beliefs.  Are you ready to start unlearning your way to success?

“Do not get obsolete like an old technology, keep innovating yourself.” – Sukant Ratnakar  

 

Have you ever gotten a new software or app and when you went to open it up received the message that it wouldn’t run on the computer or device you were looking to use it on?  This is usually because the device doesn’t have the correct hardware or software to run the latest programs.  So what do you do?  That’s right, you need to update to keep up with the newest technology.  

The same thing happens in your life.  Even when you have been successful, the game is changing at a faster and faster pace.  The only way to maintain the success is to keep innovating.  

This means multiple types of opportunities.  It could be new marketing ideas, different product solutions for your customers to meet their needs, new markets to expand into, new niches to enter, better methods to service your clients, improved customer service.   

One of the challenges for many entrepreneurs is they are too involved and in the middle of the business – it can be hard to see some of the ways to innovate.  

Attending training events, industry conferences,working with a coach or mentor, reading voraciously, networking within your industry and outside of it, masterminding with other business owners and outside consulting are all ways to pick up new ideas and fresh eyes on your business.  Pick at least two of these to be doing at any one time.  Then keep on adding new options to your innovation mix. 

Staying on top is a continual innovation process.  The best are always adding new pieces to stay where they are.  What are you going to do to step up your business and your life to the next level?  Make sure you are upgrading constantly to avoid the old technology scrap heap.

“Prepare yourself for success. You have to see it coming to get there.”– Destiny Booze  

Have you pictured what your success will look like?  

Are you able to describe it in vivid, accurate, emotion provoking detail?

One of my favorite exercises I give to my students is writing down what your dream day looks like.  This is everything which goes on during this day.  It includes what you see, what you feel, what you smell.  I want them to feel like they are there just describing what they see or just saw.  Why so much detail?  

The more real this picture is in your head, the better you are able to create it in your life now.  When your emotions are involved and multiple senses, the picture is more real like you have already experienced it.  Once you experience something, it is easier to recreate it.

The more detailed you are with the description, the easier it is for the universe to provide you all you need to realize your goal.  When you are general or vague, it’s hard for the universe to provide the result you want since it is unclear on your expectations.

Think about it like this.  If you wanted to go on vacation and said I just want to get away, would the results be the same as saying you wanted to go to a five star hotel on the beach of the Gulf of Mexico with temps of at least 85 degrees during the day with plenty of outside activities to participate in, fantastic local restaurants to eat at for dinner within walking distance and great shopping for local beach novelty items?  The second one has a much higher likelihood of getting you what you want versus the vague first statement, right.

The same is true for where you want to go with your life. See the success you want first and you will be able to find it and create it in your life.  Take the time with one of your goals to write out a detailed description of what it looks like, feels like, sounds like.  This is one of the steps toward achieving it!

“Habits are like financial capital – forming one today is an investment that will automatically give out returns for years to come.” – Shawn Achor

What kind of ‘habit investments’ have you been making lately?  When you create a habit, it can either bring you closer to your goals or pull you further from them.  This means your returns could be positive or negative depending on the habit you created.

How do you choose the habits you make a part of your life?  One of the most effective ways to keep your habits aligned with your Principle Targets is to keep these in front of you to be read throughout every day and week.  As you make the choice to take any action, you are able to ask yourself whether the action is moving you closer to or further from your intended target.

When you are moving closer to your goals, this is a habit to take consistent action on.  Implement it every day for 21 days to create a new habit for yourself which will keep on returning positive returns. 

If you look at this new action and are unsure or know it’s pulling you the other direction, make sure you are good with the outcome before creating the negative investment.  Of course, one of the consequences of making a knowingly negative investment is the effort and time it will take to change it in the future when you want to turn it into a positive habit. 

If your goal is creating wealth, does spending 30 minutes on Facebook viewing status updates and clicking on articles get you closer to your principle targets?  Know this habit you are creating costs you time know and results later.  Using this same 30 minutes to focus on a better action item directed at your goals would result in you investing an additional 125 hours toward your principle target in a year (counting only a typical work week).  This is 15 and a half additional work days (8 hour work day) you currently are choosing to invest in surfing Facebook instead of creating more in your life.  Shocking, right?  Is this how you want to use half a month of your available wealth creation time?

Pay attention to the little habits you create which can have huge implications to your final results.  Every action and habit is either moving you closer to or further from your Principle Targets.  You get to choose which direction it goes.  Choose wisely.

“Success begins at extra mile.” – Yuikan Shirik 

How often do you go the extra mile to create your dream?  This is an easy one to talk about yet realistically, how often do you do it?

I hear so often about people’s goals and visions.  They have fantastic dreams of what they want their life to be at some point.  The disconnect comes when you start asking about the actions they are taking right now to create the results they want.

This is when the excuses start.  I’ve been really busy at work or taking care of the family’s latest emergency.  I’m waiting for my spouse/significant other/business partner/friend/etc. to be ready.  I need to make some money before I can jump over to do this.  I’m still studying how to do it.  An emergency came up this week.  Any of these sound familiar?

Now before you get worked up – and if you are, look inside yourself as to why you are having this reaction – there are really only two outcomes to any action —> results or excuses.  The sooner you embrace this, the faster you will create the success you want.  Every successful person has realized this and is why they rarely accept excuses.  The ability to rationally view outcomes this way why so few are truly successful. They let the excuses and the emotion of them slow down their progress.

Here’s the challenge for the next 30 days.  Every time what would be an excuse for falling short pops up, ask yourself how can you still make this action happen.  You are a problem solver.  You always find the answer to your question.  You do whatever it takes to achieve your action steps.  Now go the extra mile to find the solution you want to reach the result you intended! 

At the end of the 30 days, review what you have accomplished.  When you take this challenge on fully focusing on eliminating the excuses, your results will improve.  It is the only outcome possible. 

Breaking Your Chains!

Paul Finck

P.S. And to really turbo-charge your success, find one extra action step you can take each day toward your principle targets.  It may seem small and over a year this creates another 365 steps toward your goals.  This is the extra mile I am talking about!
