Double Your Sales THIS MONTH

Want to know how to DOUBLE YOUR SALES THIS MONTH?

Work 120 hours/week ALL MONTH LONG. That’s right, you read correctly – work 120 hours/week ALL MONTH LONG and see what happens.

I speak from experience – that’s what I did (20+ years ago) and it was the SINGLE BEST INVESTMENT I EVER MADE.

Let me tell you what happens.

First, you’ll get though ALL your to do lists and will feel like a friggin’ hero.

Second, you’ll get to stuff that has been holding you back for weeks, months maybe even years.

Third, you’ll start to produce results you’ve never seen before BECAUSE you’re working 3 times more than anyone else or TWICE as much as someone putting in 60 hours/week.

Yeah, yeah I can hear you all the way over here…

“Life is to be lived – not to be worked.”

That is such a lame excuse and great REASON not to produce RESULTS.

BECAUSE what you don’t yet know (unless you’ve done it) is that at 120 hours/week, you get into a HYPER ZONE OF ACTIVITY THAT CAN’T BE EXPERIENCED ANY OTHER WAY.

I’ll give you a metaphor that will prove it to you – Have you ever driven 100 km/hr and then all of a sudden reduce your speed to 50 Km/hr and felt as though you could walk faster?

That is called perceptual contrast.

It’s the same thing with the 120 hours/week. 60 Hours/week is NOT ENOUGH CONTRAST – you have to go WELL BEYOND YOUR CURRENT LIMITS to LEARN the DISTINCTIONS OF SUCCESS.

Give it some thought – it’s NOT a lifestyle recommendation – it’s a TEMPORARY SUGGESTION.

Let me know if your ‘man or woman enough’ to give it a go.

Onward and upward!

P.S.

What you are going to learn – IF YOU DO THIS, is where your time is wasted and how you can become MORE efficient and effective with your time. Your brain (and body) is going to get tired and will star to find EASIER, FASTER ways to get the SAME or MORE amount of work done WITHOUT compromising RESULTS.

The sports analogy is simple – I’ve been training/playing squash 2 hours/day for the last 2 weeks. Today, My partner had to leave ‘early’ and we only played for 1 hour. At the end of the hour, we both realised that it was the ‘easiest’ 1-hour of squash we have played in a long time.

Perceptual contrast – it’s massively powerful. Give it a go and post your comments on this blog – I’ll give you personal insights and suggestions offline if you do!

From Nerd to Geek to…

You’re going to want to read the post I just made to my PERSONAL MASTERY BLOG, it’s how I went from being a nerd to a geek to… well go there now to read the story!

It’s a fun story to tell with an amazing ending, one that I want for you as well!

P.S.

Often, it’s the easiest things to do that make the biggest difference. This story is a classic for me BECAUSE my friends and colleagues at the time didn’t do this and well, the results speak for themselves.

Life’s not fair, guess what? Neither is business!

Today’s post is about what separates Champions from Challengers, Challengers from Competitors, Competitors from Participants and finally Participants from Spectators.

I am currently competing at the World Master’s Squash Championships in Christchurch, New Zealand and chronicling my exploits on my Personal Mastery Blog.

Yesterday’s post discussed the ‘Kryptonite’ phenomenon in sufficient detail that I won’t repeat it here, but there is one additional distinction that I didn’t quite articulate sufficiently that has more to do with business than squash so I will post it here.

You have to be MUCH better to beat a lesser competitor when that competitor is a ‘scrappy’ hacker style player. Let me be crystal clear with the squash analogy first – if an unorthodox player wins, he wins.

That’s how the game is played. All points count. Elegant masterful winners as well as off-the-racquet-frame spinning shots that die 1″ above the tin. If you’ve played competitive squash, you know what I’m talking about. The funny grip, the two-foot stance facing the front wall, the inside-out boasts from the weirdest angles…

In business it’s exactly the same – the ‘scrappy’ competitor may win a client today, tomorrow and the next day after that, but if you stay the course and improve, you WILL get to the point where you can dictate terms and conditions and set the rules for you to win.

In academic circles, it’s called the ‘terminal degree’ – no, not the degree that kills you (even though it might feel that way!), but the LAST DEGREE you end up with.

There is a similar, but quite different concept in corporate development called the Peter Principle which is not quite where I’m headed with today’s distinction.

THE GOOD NEWS: Every competitor has a point where his/her ‘scrappy’ skills won’t take them any further. Most people don’t realise this is the case, but if YOU DO, you can use that and leverage it to YOUR ADVANTAGE.

THE BAD NEWS: You have to be a LOT better to overcome the ‘scrappiness’. You can’t just be a little better, you have to be a LOT better.

Case in point – I played a match today that I lost BECAUSE I couldn’t put enough pressure to PROHIBIT my opponent from using his unorthodox shots. I was the BETTER PLAYER TECHNICALLY – but he had a weapon that I couldn’t neutralise.

I wasn’t better enough. Even though that is poor grammar, I’m sure you understand.

With your sales, marketing and product/service delivery, you have to be MUCH BETTER to become the DOMINANT PLAYER in your ‘space’ – whatever that may be.

The more specific you are about your niche, the easier it is for you to develop the necessary skills to be ‘better enough’…

There you go – another distinction that if you think about it and APPLY IT can have a dramatic influence on your results as you continue to push…

P.S.

A recession is the ‘scrappiest’ business cycle there is. Everyone is scrambling to make ends meet, desperation and fear take over pretty quickly.

If you want to know my thoughts on what to do in a recession or what to do to recession-proof your business, click on the hyperlinks. I produced a $17 video that explains it 42 minutes.

Your competitors won’t know what hit them if you do what I suggest in the video!

Bootcamp Encore Presentation in Melbourne in December

I’m sure you’ve heard of our Bootcamp – listen to this invitation to get on the court with me and start playing your Business and/or Internet ‘A’ game.

Due to popular demand, we’re staging an ‘encore presentation’ of the 2008 Exponential Internet & Business Building Bootcamp

Wouldn’t you like to have such great response that you have to perform ‘encore’ services for your clients and prospects?

Exponential Marketing Strategies produce those kinds of results – making sure you are only selling to people who want to buy from you.

For example, we’re looking for the most committed business entrepreneurs and Internet Marketers who want to out-perform, out-sell and out-market their competitors with the least amount of effort. That’s the KEY for us – to do it creatively, in a fun and inexpensive way so it’s within everyone’s reach. Anyone who wants to learn these strategies can. That’s why we’re successful – we cater and focus our energies on people who want to take home an extra $50,000 to $100,000 this year without working longer hours.

They want, as explained in the YouTube video, to play their ‘A game’ with other like-minded players who have the same outcome. They know that playing with equal strength or BETTER PLAYERS, their game will improve and therefore their RESULTS/REWARDS!

Check out the 3-day, 36-hour Exponential Internet & Business Building Bootcamp
