Make this One Change And You’ll Transform Your Wealth

There are three elements that affect how much success you achieve in business and life.

  1. Your Strategy
  2. Your Mental State
  3. Luck

(Element 3 is greatly affected by elements 1 and 2).

Today I want to talk about optimizing your mental state – and teach you a super simple but astoundingly effective method of improving how you think, so that you are far more successful.

Make this one change and so many parts of your life will improve – the quality of your work, the amount of money you make and your self esteem, just for starters.

The technique is that powerful.

And here it is:

Make the decision that from now on you are going to aim to be the best in the world at your work.

Not just good at what you do, or even great, but literally the best in the world.

If you dare to do this, and follow through with it with conviction, many great things will happen:

1Your own personal standards will immediately rise.

Holding yourself to a higher standard is crucial to succeeding at a top level. The best in any field simply demand more from themselves.

What’s quite remarkable is that as soon as you commit to becoming the best in the world you will notice the standard of what you do quickly rise… usually within  3 minutes.

2Your motivation will skyrocket.

When you decide to play at a truly world class level, suddenly work seems much more exciting. Being ‘quite good’ at what you do is nothing to get pumped up about, but being the best in the world is a whole different ball game. It’s vastly more inspiring.

3. You will demand more from those around you.

Your staff. Your suppliers. Even your clients.

The moment you decide that you are aiming to become the best in the world, you will instantly see that in order to achieve that you’ll need to get the team around you to also lift their game. Pronto.

You’ll demand more from them, as well as design different ways you can work together that enables a superior result.

Their results will get better. Really quickly.

4. You’ll start aggressively looking for ways to improve.

Suddenly it will be apparent to you that there are numerous areas of your performance that you’ll need to learn to improve. You’ll start hunting for experts, for mentors, for courses that can take you up level after level, until you reach true elite performance.

All 4 of these things happen when you dare to make the decision to become the best on the world.

Will you get there? Will you become literally the best in the world at what you do?

I have no idea. But I’ll tell you two things:

Firstly, you won’t get there unless you aim for it.

There’s an old Persian saying. “Not everyone who ran after a Gazelle caught it. But he who caught it ran after it.”

And secondly, even if you don’t make it to best on the planet, your results will improve so greatly that in 3 years time you will swear that going for it was one of the best moves you ever made.

 

How To Finish The Year Brilliantly

There’s two ways you could finish the last 3 weeks of this year:

1. Like most people.

Lot’s of parties, wind down early, plan your break.

2. Like a high achiever.

Enjoy the festive season, but also do vital things that can make you much more money and have you beautifully set up to have a fantastic 2016.

As a high performance business coach, I’m always pushing entrepreneurs to maximize their time. So with that in mind, here are 4 things you can do to end this year brilliantly:

1. MAKE A LAST GRAB FOR NEW CLIENTS.

Don’t let this precious time go to waste. Contact anyone who has shown any interest in your product this year and try to close them. Offer a discount or a special bonus to sweeten the deal, just get them across the line. You can do this! Don’t just spend money this holiday season, make some!

2. CLEAN UP YOUR ADMIN AND PEOPLE MESSES.

Throw out everything you can, get your files in order, answer or delete those excess emails. Allocate 60 minutes every day for the next 3 weeks to tidy, organize and get on top of things. That way when you walk into the office in the New Year you will feel and perform like a winner. Your environment matters! Get it under control.

Strategies 3 and 4 for finishing this year with power are in this short video:

Do all 4 of these techniques and you’ll not only end the year richer, you’ll feel more confident, excited and on top of life.

These techniques are simple, but super effective. Check them all out here:

A Great Business Tip From Mark Zuckerberg

One of the fastest ways to get better at business is to copy the greats.

And they don’t get much better than Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg.

Zuckerberg is a pretty unusual guy, and he sets himself some pretty weird goals to improve himself.

As a result, he just keeps getting better and better. Check out Zuckerberg’s crazy yearly goals here:

Every Entrepreneur Should Ask This Question.

More than 20 years ago a fascinating business concept was developed.

It’s called Zero Based Thinking. And it’s an incredibly effective way to grow your business. Sometimes we can get so caught up in the complexity of our business, we become unclear about how to grow it.

The beauty of Zero Based Thinking is that it makes you ask one single question again and again. And each time you ask this question, you get clearer on how to improve your business.

I’ve prepared a short video on how to use Zero based Thinking.
