You now embark upon what may be the greatest internal journey of a lifetime.
Accept assurance from someone who has proven to know better than you,
who has continued, day after day after day, to outdo you in most ways,
most all of them at world-class, not because of a difference in mind,
instead, a difference in use of mind: Choosing to conquer time.
Rather than seeing years and months and weeks and days,
the next eighty-six thousand seconds is what counts,
and how I'm going to apportion them to our needs.
Dollars are so easy to replace by but asking.
It is the one and only vital money secret.
Everything else devolves down to it.
The oldest profession on earth?
She had to ask for the sale!
The first salespeople?
They, had to ask.
So do you.
If you knew,
you'd better do.
If you knew better,
you'd surely do better.
This is from those who do.
Masters and millionaires know.
Champions and billionaires know.
They do better, ergo they know better.
Individuality = personalizing others' success.
Stop being someone else's monkey; it looks bad.
You don't need to buy books or CD's, tapes or video.
You need not buy anything, because all you need is free.
Twenty-four hours of living as eighty percent of the world does,
and you will return to your home with triple the wealth you left with.
So far, you've shown neither the training nor much inclination to understand this.
While that is to be lamented, the Psychology of Shortcuts empowers you to fix this.
All that you ever wished for, all that you dreamed, is going to come true, faster and faster.
Make no mistakes about it. No human has ever broken this many world records, let alone in this many categories.
MisterShortcut did NOT read seventeen thousand books. He read a book or two per day for seventeen thousand days.
MisterShortcut did not create tens of thousands of bits of EyeCandy digital art: he created dozens of pieces per day for a thousand days. MisterShortcut did not create one million unique documents. He took each document, created a thousand or more versions of each, opened them all to customize, tweak, refine, amend, and of course, emend, one at a time, at extraordinary speed. That speed is not based on superhuman traits, it's based on diligent use of two precious resources: individual minutes and seconds of excellence combined with technology, which is the product of someone else's minutes and seconds of excellence; and, of course, the use of magnificently powerful shortcuts.
You claim to understand what synergy is, yet your daily actions prove, hundreds and thousands of times that you refuse to engage in synergy, or to enjoy the fruits of synergy. Tell us, why are there only about seven hundred and fifty thousand people in the U.S. making their full-time income by buying and selling stocks from their home or office computers? It's ridiculously easy, and it's based on the PowerGem of one percent. Their goal and their job is to increase their total investment by just one percent. Whether it's per week, per month, or per day does not matter; that's up to the individual and their needs, and their wants. What counts is the goal of increasing just one percent. When you prove that you can increase by one percent, and you do it a second time, you've proven it was done as a matter of mind and personal commitment, stated out loud, that "I am." The third time you do it, you prove your own ability to produce a pattern, known by lesser mortals as a "recipe." Anything you repeat successfully has a tendency to make you feel good, empowering both the possibility and the likelihood that you will do it again; not merely that you CAN do it again, much more, that you actually shut up and repeat your earlier excellence. This is almost thoroughly disconnected from the concepts of "Rah-rah, you can do it." This is about the purely mathematical science of succeeding.
Increasing anything by one percent, with one hundred repetitions, yields more than double what you started with. Double anything ten times and you now have one thousand times what you started with. This works for ping pong and stock trading, one additional skillfully-placed nail, one more attempt to influence the behavior of someone important to you, and more. That's because, like all PowerGems, it's a universal shortcut; it works for any and every human trait.
Can YOU increase your performance in any of 32,000 identified human skills by just one percent? Stupid question, ey?
OF COURSE you can increase one percent. As well, it shouldn't take all that long.
Repeat that one percent just one thousand times
and you end up with one thousand times more.
Whether it takes you a thousand weeks or a thousand days or a thousand hours,
is it not worth ending up with one thousand times what you started with?
