Knowing Personal Growth is great.
Archiving Personal Success is even better.
But why not do BOTH?
That’s when you can slap an “S (Superman)” on your chest…
…because you’ll be unstoppable.
And today I have something that will make you feel like you have personal growth superpowers:
How to magically use the 80/20 principle to transform your life and achieve success in everything you do.
Have you ever felt that you should have achieved something more at this point in your life?
Do you think that you are entitled to have a great life and yet you haven’t maximized your potential?
How many times have you been disappointed or frustrated with what’s happening in your life?
We’ve all been there
Check this out…
You might have heard of the Pareto Principle or 80/20 rule.
You see, 80/20 is based on Vilfredo Pareto’s study that found that 80% of the income was received by 20% of the population.
80% of the output or results came from just 20% of the action.
Let me explain…
Most people find themselves “feeling productive”, and yet they haven’t achieved what they really want in life.
We all need to focus on the most important things, no matter how small we may think they are, in order to transform our situations and achieve the success that we really want to achieve.
To top it off…
- 80% of your fulfillment comes from 20% of the things you have done
- 80% of your happiness comes from the love and support you receive from 20% of the people you know
- 80% of your success comes from 20% of what you do
In your life…
Your success is not determined by how many hours you worked, but by the outcome of the things you worked on.
It all just makes sense
If you apply the 80/20 percent principle in your life, you will have greater potential to succeed, and be more efficient and you will be able to achieve more quickly!
But one thing’s for sure
No matter what field or industry you’re in, the key to what is most important is based on what you really want to be.
It is finding the right vehicle and the clearest direction that will determine how fast you will get there.
Everything else would just be secondary.
If you want your life to transform.
Then, focus on doing the things that can turn your life around instead of trying to do almost anything just to say you are doing something.
Identify the areas in your life that you really want to transform and work on them.
- If you want to succeed in your career, focus on what you do best to elevate you to a higher position.
- If you are good in doing administrative work, but you are great in managing a team, find opportunities or ask your boss to delegate management tasks to you.
- If you are a businessman, identify what you do best in your business and delegate the rest.
- If you are good in the operations aspect of the business, but you are great in closing leads, hire someone who can help you with lead generation, and work on closing deals.
And you know what?
The 80/20 principle is pretty clear and simple.
If you have too much on your plate that you can’t seem to finish, focus on the 20.
Focus on what you do best and start from there.
Pick one or two most important projects and finish them off before you start something else.
If you want to transform your life, focus on the 20.
Pick one or two areas in your life that you want to transform and work on them
Pick one or two areas you are best with, and focus on them.
But there’s one small catch…
If you want to transform your life, start doing things that WILL transform your life instead of taking on things that don’t contribute to that.
If you want to really succeed, do what will make you succeed and abandon activities that will not contribute to your success.
But remember this:
When you focus on the most important “20”, it will all follow.
