Few now…few later
Be a part of the few now so you can be a part of the elite few later…”
What are you doing right now? Are you thumbing through social media…or are you looking binging through episodes? Are you griping about your present circumstances, the economy, or government?
Is what you’re doing right now productive or destructive?
Are you a part of few or many?
If you’re a part of few then you’re in good company, but if you’re one of many, you’re in trouble.
Maybe you’re learning a new skill, developing your technique, or deciding which book on negotiating or body language to buy.
Maybe you’re listening to audiobooks or podcasts such as The Sales Life.
Maybe you’re out on the road jogging-every once in a while you’ll make eye contact with a fellow runner; your language to one another is non-verbal because you’re a part of the few.
Maybe you’re out in the driveway doing burpees and planks while the morning dew drips onto the driveway as the sun rises.
Maybe you’re putting pen to paper early in the morning or pressing record for your next episode.
“Are you doing what everyone else is doing,” I hope you’ll snap back with a, “Hell no!” because you’re the one willing, when everyone is able.
Most people match their day with what everyone else is doing. He’s not doing it, so I’m not either.
She’s leaving early, so I will too. It’s a, me neither or I am too herd mentality.
The herd don’t want it hard-neither do the few, but they’re willing to take it on.
I need you to be a part of the few. While everyone else is looking for the shortcut, you’re willing to take it on as it comes.
If it looks easy, it’s because I’ve put in the reps to make it look that way & if it’s hard, you’ve been preparing for this for months…years even.
A quick productivity test to you today. Are you a part of most or few?
Are you sitting or are you sharpening? Do you wish things were easier, or are you working because you expect better?
Yesterday I was pissed off because I wrote, recorded, published the podcast , & exercised before I went to work. When I got to work there was extra work piled on top of my already busy day. I snapped because I started feeling sorry for myself. My poor me mind was complaining that while most people roll out of bed and waltz into work, I had already put in hours of work.
So I popped off…
As soon as I did, I said to myself, “Who cares what they did or didn’t do before, during, and after work? That’s got nothing to do with you.”
Don’t ease up because everyone else is too. Push hard so when the hard comes, you make it look easy.
When hard jumps on you, stay cool, controlled, and massively productive. Others will be drawn to how collective you are in the midst of chaos.
If you do, what most won’t, you’ll have what few can.
Be a part of the few now & you’ll be a part of the elite few later.
Never settle. Keep selling your way through life, no matter what.
