Hey Team...

Happy to be back in the swing of things after a great weekend...

Back with my in-person and consulting clients... 

Ready to change lives....and change their game....

Setting their bar higher each and every week....

With that, what I realized is this...

It is really only YOU vs. 10% in this game of success and achievement...

Why?

What does this even mean?

Let me tell you...

Follow the Breakdown:

  • 100% makes up the entire population
  • 90% of those people talk and take minimal to zero action on their goals and dreams
  • 10% of people are out there trying to change the world.....
  • 1% is generously the amount of people in your particular field/ discipline that you need to beat/ win against in order to be the king/queen of your industry...

I know this sounds a bit wild.. but think about it...

Are you a part of the 90% or the 10%?

90% of people are the masses....

They have the same or similar viewpoints as the person next to them...

They follow trends...norms... and make up the average....

They typically choose the conservative way rather than challenge the status quo...

They are just trying to "get through it" rather than change their world and world around them....

The word "renegade" and "outlier" scares them to death...

Conformity is much more comfortable...

But my friends, the game is won by the 10% that do not accept mediocrity...

The 10% has high expectations of themselves and the people they surround themselves with....

So, as you think about taking on a project, engaging in a new career, or becoming great at something...

Remember, you are not competing against everybody... 

You are only competing against your own self-limiting and at times negative thoughts... as well as the 10% of people, or the 1% in your field that have decided being average is unacceptable...

Simplifying to this level shows you that you now have a much bigger chance at greatness than you may have thought...

Most people are afraid to even take a shot...

They are afraid to get in the game...

They may of had a failure once, hated the feeling, and never stepped back into the game....

They quit...

But that is not you...

You are players in the game...

Go out and win.

Be the 10% and win against the 1% and yourself...

You can do it...

If you need help...

Let me know!
