This could make you angry (I’m just calling it the way I see it) or you might know someone you need to forward this to.
You’ve probably heard about the 80/20 rule. 20% of people in a group/company/industry will produce 80% of the results. It’s also true that 20% of your activities will produce 80% of your results/income/happiness.
What you may not know is that only 3% of people every become really successful or reach their full potential. Out of 100 people who set a goal, only 3 will follow through and achieve it.
Why? They don’t have a plan. They don’t know what they want their life/business/relationship to look like, so of course, they have no step-by-step blueprint to get there.
Guess what? They also don’t get results they like either.
Be on this teleseminar Tuesday and I’ll share how you can be in the 3%:
How did I figure this out?
I was in a mentoring organization for entrepreneurs in 2001/2002 with about 400 people. We met every quarter and were exposed to top experts in many fields to help us grow personally and professionally. I was brand new as an entrepreneur and didn’t even have an idea of what I wanted to do when I joined this group.
And yet, by being open to opportunities showing up that would help me figure out what my path was going to be in my new life, I became one of those 3%. In fact looking back to this large group of people who had paid several thousands of dollars to be in this group, I think the success rate was even less than 3%.
I find that really sad. But one thing I observed early on was that not everyone who spends money really wants to get a result. Some people have convinced themselves that the simple act of signing up and spending money is action that will move them forward.
That is an illusion.
The only thing that will move you forward is participation, full-out 100% engagement.
It doesn’t even have to be something that you pay for. There are teleseminars, videos, audios all over the Internet that offer plenty of great content on a variety of subjects. So you can’t use the excuse that you can’t afford the help you need. That’s simply not the case.
Like this teleseminar packed with great content for you:
I’ve had some terrific questions come in from those of you who have already registered for tomorrow’s call and I’m looking forward to answering every single one!
But guess what?
Even though people are signing up for the call about how to create the life of your dreams and the business to fund it, 97% have no questions!
I shouldn’t be shocked, but I am. There are 2 possible explanations for this. (I hope it’s the second.) So it’s time for some tough love.
The first explanation could be that, following the 3% rule, these people are kidding themselves about wanting a result different than what they are getting now.
They have an opportunity to get individual help and they aren’t taking advantage of it. Passively listening to a teleseminar hoping that someone else has asked a question that will be the answer for what’s preventing you from being successful is crazy.
I hope it’s this explanation:
You don’t have the clarity necessary to even know what it is you need help with. This is easy to correct. This is more common than you would think and the biggest issue that keeps people stuck.
Lack of clarity comes from not knowing the correct questions to ask yourself to get clear. I can help you with that-especially if you ask me a question to give me a clue where you’re stuck.
If you’re not clear, you’re spinning around in circles doing a lot of tasks, working really hard, and not knowing what it is that will really move you forward. You’re overwhelmed, losing your enthusiasm for what you’re doing and don’t know what to do next.
If this is the case, you really need to be on the call.
…and please ask a question, even if it’s just to tell me you’re overwhelmed, so I know how to help you when we talk.
See you Tuesday!
