10=1 then 1=10. The Truth about Effort & Success

Real Estate Agent with Providence Group Realty 0664947

It is so easy to get discouraged with any new endeavor. Learning how to play the piano, basketball, a new relationship, sales... you name it. We get anxious because it's frustrating, we make mistakes and we put all this effort in and see little or no results. Well, I have great news for you. You are on the path to greatness and don't quit! Here's why: The formula to greatness says we must invest 10 units of effort before we see 1 unit of results.

So if I'm getting into sales or learning to play the guitar, I KNOW I'm going to have to think BIGGER and understand this concept of greatness requires me to invest effort, more effort, and then some greater effort BEFORE I see an ounce of results.

10 units of effort = 1 unit of results. Is that part fun and exciting? NO, not at all. But here's the good news. Most people quit when they don't get immediate results. They can't deal with ANY adversity or rejection and as a result the playing field is W-I-D-E open for you and me. But here's the best news, the formula then switches and this is HUGE. With experience, skill and confidence now 1 unit of effort produces 10 units of results. Ka-POW!! All that effort, effort,and more effort yields, finesse, confidence, mastery and maybe some swag. You no longer compete... you dominate and people start calling you an "overnight" success or a natural.

We live in a society of instant gratification and a short attention span. If it doesn't happen now we get anxious and get defeated or start blaming. There is no overnight success and the road of success is a tough climb up the stairs and the elevator is out of order. :-)  Ryan Leak has a great talk on Chasing Failure. He goes as far to want to be set up to fail so he can see just how far he can go... and then go again. The opportunity is in the 10=1 and then the 1=10 happens.

Be great!

Sam Thomas - the car uses maximum gas when it starts. Once it picks up the momentum we enjoy the ride, isn't it.

It's all about being on right track - work hard in the beginning (10=1) and enjoy the fruits (1=10)!

Nice post.
