Psychology of Shortcuts of Masters & Millionaires
So, you want to have more ______ or learn to ________ or get that __________.
There's at least one thing we can accept as immutable: The chances of it happening accidentally are not as good as when there is specific and direct effort toward achieving it. Pretty straightforward, isn't it?
"But if I've never done it before, how am I supposed to know how?"
I had my own ideas about it, but I figured it would be a good idea to ask people in a position to know. In three years I was able to study about 5,200 of the most successful people in history (mostly modern history) I was able to study tapes, books, research, experimentation reports, videos, and more.... full time. In my case, that's characteristically 100 to 130 hrs per week.
They are the horse's mouth. Everyone else, from my coign of vantage, can be found at the other end of the horse.
Thanks primarily to the incredible shortcuts of masters and millionaires, three years grew into four years, five, and beyond, studying, interviewing, breaking bread with role models.
NOTE: Write a short note to ten people who are already world-class at whatever YOU would like to be world-class at. Acknowledge with civility that they are among the best in the world, that you're inviting them to lunch or dinner in hope that they'll be a one-time 30-minute mentor to someone who wants to grow up just like them.
|It is specifically because of this one high-powered shortcut that I most likely play guitar and piano better than you; paint; compose songs; created the largest, and possibly prettiest personal web site in existence, connecting over 127,000 pages on 940+ connected web sites.... all by my own hand, and more.|
I'm no smarter than you. I yearn more to excel... to shut up and find people who are doing it better than I am.
All because of the use of one high-powered shortcut: going directly to people who are known to be world-class in their fields and exhorting their shortcuts.
Let you in on a secret: I did not break 177 records at seven large NY companies. We broke all those records>Contrary to popular belief, Steve Rubin wasn't really that talented, he was hungry. Without a doubt, those records were broken and shattered EXCLUSIVELY through the repeated daily use of the IDENTICAL words, sentences, questions and actions I was able to glean from world-class masters. Commonalties of those who are doing it.
Making use of this shortcut is absolutely, utterly, and one-conditionally guaranteed to provide you with a rich yield of better, faster results in every human effort. The one condition of course, is that you shut up and put it to use. Everything else is useless chatter.
The commonality that first leaped into view with each Olympic champion and Fortune 100 CEO; with the fellow in New England who offers over a thousand types of pancakes, or the gentleman who combined Macy's with Federated Department Stores and then went on to quickly and completely reverse the ailing state of Zayle's Diamonds (Mr. Anthony DiNicola), is the common trait of wanting something specific, something that could be stated out loud in 10 words or less.|
I specifically sought people who'd accomplished a great feat or skill not merely once, but numerous times in order to weed out any possibilities of coincidence or so-called luck.
I set an arbitrary figure of five separate accomplishments of the same thing as my base minimum, later emending that to three.
Was I ever in for surprises! Should you have the intelligence to actually use some of what you'll be reading (90% of you, no matter what your education levels are, are so stupid that you will never read most of this book, let alone use the magic found in these pages. Never mind "why," it's just a fact that less than 20% of all books picked up get read cover to cover.
For those of you who DO actually make the decision to prove that you are better than we now believe you to be; for those of you who definitively understand WHY we don't have a higher opinion of you, you're going to get pretty excited about whichever techniques make the most sense to you, because every one of them accelerates the quality AND quantity of your results.
About five percent of you are going to get astounded and excited, and will be smart enough to consistently use those methods that make the most sense to you.
In every examined walk of life, from concentration camp survivors, Olympic gold medalists, successful entertainers, artists, politicians, baseball players... literally every examined walk of life... it turns out that roughly 5% of every group on earth rises up to the top of their field. Are these people in the five percent smarter? Better educated? Better connected w/ people in high places? Wealthier?
The answer in each category is a flat, distinct, "NO!" It's been proven so many times over that I'm not even going to waste your time establishing the basis for the statement. I'll simply ask you to accept it as a given.
So, what is it about these five of every hundred who rise to the top? Do they have commonalities? Do they do or possess something special that we "regular joes and janes" can tap into?
I give you an unconditional guaranteed "YES!" Yes, they have commonalities. Yes, they possess something special that you and I can tap into. Wait until you hear the best part: you can tap into the same resources that they are, and begin effecting big changes in your life --- in a matter of minutes! MINUTES!!!
Is there a catch? You bet there is. More than one, in fact. I'd say that the toughest catch/obstacle to you making radical improvements in your life is nothing more, or less, than making a decision that this is what you want. I kid you not. The decision to figure out a way to get ___________ or to be __________; this is where your biggest challenge can be found. Figuring out "HOW" is a piece of cake compared to making the decision itself that you'll go to work on it. Get through this first step, and you will come to understand over the coming days and weeks that you really ARE making big, big changes in your life.
Actually use pen and paper in the next 10 minutes, I promise you'll see changes within 72 hours. Most importantly from your own short-term point of view, you WILL see a daily or weekly progression that's faster than it's ever been for you before, and that's the whole point, hm?
