Each time someone younger than you has come to you with a challenge or problem, soliciting your advice,
isn't it funny that, each time, pretty much every time, you've had perfect or near-perfect advice, good words of encouragement for them?
"Funny," because here you are able to produce a good answer every or nearly every time for others, and still, from you, we see continued mediocrity. Of course it's funny. Sad, but still funny, because it has nothing to do with the circumstances you keep claiming. If you knew better, you'd do better. The faster you close your mouth and open your eyes and ears to the exact words and actions and attitudes of those doing better than you, the faster you get to reap the same results they are. If Sammy Sosa or Babe Ruth or Hank Aaron or Barry Bonds or Mark McGuire tells you to hold the bat low and swing upwards if you want to hit more home runs, what is it in your mind that insists on talking back?
How do you offer your own opinions despite your opinions on THEIR area of expertise being nearly perfect at zero? There is great magic inside of you. It requires that you follow the lead of those doing better than you. It is not a slight to you. It does not mean you are stupid. Stupidity is seeing someone do something with excellence and someone else opening their mouth to offer anything but praise. A character named Forest Gump stated that stupid is as stupid does. What's wonderful is that it has an equal and exact opposite, great and greater than we might hope for. You see, power is as knowledge does, which means that wisdom is as knowledge does, smart is as smart does, so what will you do today that is better and smarter than the tv or ball game you watched yesterday?
Pretend for even ten or twenty seconds that you were capable of doing everything one percent better, from tying your shoelaces to washing a cup or any task requiring several of your thirty-two thousand skills. Not world-class, merely one percent better. Can you do that for ten or twenty seconds, pretending that every single task you engage in comes under the caetogory of those things you must get better at? When it's made so much easier for you by demanding only one percent increase in quality or quantity with each try at each effort, does your breast swell with excitement at what you're about to become in the next 100 days?
This magical trick of power and success is a PowerGem, because it works approximately one hundred percent of the time for approximately one hundred percent of the people who use this PowerGem one hundred or more times, alone or in tandem with one or more other PowerGems.
Speak less and do more... ... just one percent more. Your world-class success is less than one hundred days away.
World-class results are usually the result of world-class efforts.
Those world-class efforts, more often than not, include world-class shortcuts.
The first rule of achieving mastery, including that of a world-class level, at anything,
is a clear understanding that those who do it the best have a great tendency to know it the best.
Find people around you who are doing it better. Drop them a note or call, or tell them face-to-face,
that when you get to the top of your ladder, you hope to be very much like them; then offer to buy lunch.
The purpose of this, and you can state it thusly, is the hope of having them be your mentor for thirty minutes.
This one trick has led to countless lunches and dinners with masters and millionaires, champions and billionaires.
When you ask the same few questions, over and over, to people of extraordinary and repeated achievement,
you duplicate the world-class results of these achievers by duplicating the daily steps they take.
Understand clearly in advance that all masters and millionaires, champions and billionaires,
all top achievers in all walks of life use the same world-class success shortcuts.
Knowing where you are going, who can help, what deadlines must be set,
asking more people more times each than anyone would've imagined...
these are the steps that assure you of world-class results.
