The greatest power you have…
Training your mind to THINK is a very big deal around here.
It’s why we invented the world’s first Time Prism!
Now that it’s been in use for the past 60 days, something remarkable is shaping up.
People are doing the unexpected…
They are following directions!
Everything Can Change in 10 Seconds…
When we launched The Time Prism we had no idea how it would be used.
The design is simple enough: Read… Breathe… THINK.
Each screen was written to be short and on-point.
You simply READ what is presented to you…
Take a deep BREATH to inject some oxygen into your brain…
And take 10 seconds to just THINK…
About what was being said…
About anything at all that pops into your mind.
You don’t need to be a race car driver to understand that to the swift goes the race.
Unless you are in a position where results don’t matter… winning doesn’t matter… getting ahead doesn’t matter or turning yourself into the best version of you doesn’t matter… then you need to think like a champion.
This means mastering your Clock Management skills.
Regardless of who you are… young or old… rich or broke… successful or struggling… we all have exactly the same number of minutes to work with:
1,440 minutes each day.
Nothing will torpedo your chance at success faster than a poor attitude.
You can have clear and tangible goals, with the best-laid plans in the world, but if you poison the well from which opportunity springs, you’ve just killed your future.
One of the great questions facing every business today is, “How do I grow my business faster and become the next hot new thing… the hot new toy… the trendy new restaurant… great new App… retail experience… making your business the rising star in your industry or community?
Every leader in every organization on Earth is asking this question right now
This week, we will be getting VERY personal… asking the truly IMPORTANT questions:
Are you actually LIVING what you say you value, or are you consumed by the moment…
with no forward movement in the direction of your dreams?
The importance of knowing what you value more than something else is critical to your day-to-day performance.
All habits, our good ones, and our bad ones are based on 3 basic conditions:
1) A TRIGGER — something that gets your attention and reminds you to take some kind of action…
2) A BEHAVIOR — a specific action you will automatically take…
3) A REWARD — what you get when you recognize the Trigger and engage in the Behavior to get the Reward you desire.
Habits are based on CRAVINGS, either positive or negative.
Crave nicotine and you smoke.
Crave chocolate and you eat cake.
Crave success and you grow rich — when you take the right sequence of actions.
Ultimately, the Excellence Habit is all about the inculcation of great ideas…
POSITIVE IDEAS that shape your performance.
To succeed, you MUST have a constant flow of great ideas… a reservoir to depend on for true innovation.
To motivate you to take bold action.
When we run out of ideas, we run out of hope.
Regardless the controversy about who should and shouldn’t be nominated for high recognition, the fact remains…
EVERY contender is both a winner and a Time Management EXPERT!
The reality is, 95% of all success is simply showing up… on time and ready to perform.
Ready for the opportunities that naturally come your way.
Have you been working harder and harder and still haven’t achieved the success you desire?
Would you like to know WHY?
Factually, scientifically, precisely?
If you’re like the vast majority of our customers, you have read all the books… listened to the tapes… attended the seminars…
BUT… there’s still a barrier between where you are now, and where you want to go.
The Proverable Aha Moment…
A flash of inspiration and illumination…
A moment of unexpected insight and discovery…
An epiphany—a sudden revelation and awareness…
Yes, I am sure you know what an Aha Moment is… so the question becomes… how do you achieve this moment many times a day, rather than just once or twice in a lifetime?
I have built my entire life around seizing ever-growing opportunities.
I have yet to hear even ONE knock on my door — or whack me upside my head.
Opportunities behave quite differently from what we have been trained to expect.
You must have POWERFUL LENSES with which to see and sense them.
Ayn Rand said it best, “Wealth is the product of man’s capacity to think.”
But the key to this observation is exactly what to THINK about!
This is especially important if you are a small business owner who wants to grow and expand profits.
So, if you want to grow, make more money, enjoy your business more.
Here’s a short list of what you want to think about, pretty much every hour of every day!
A Life is a Terrible Thing To Waste…
It is also a wonderful thing to embrace!
Most people go through their lives with a deep case of Success Myopia… they have no vision beyond the obviousness of their lives.
They fail to see the ever-present opportunities, the signs pointing to a better life, and the big milestones in their lives.
Without vision you WILL perish. Your dreams die, your hopes fade, and you find yourself in a thorny field of deep regrets.
“The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something. It’s as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today. The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer.” ~ Nolan Bushnell The Most Eye-Opening […]
