The TRUE Power of 0.01. This will BLOW your mind!!
1% doesn’t sound like a lot. Doesn’t really even sound like it can move the needle much at all if we’re being honest.
Think about this however, 1 to the power of 365 is 1.
But 1.01 to the power of 365 is 37.7834343328871588776
Now I’m nowhere near a math-wiz and even I can see how impactful just a 1% increase can be. 1% day after day after day adds up. It’s not much, it doesn’t make an immediate impact, but over time the 1% steps we take make all the difference.
Let me tell you about:
One of the most powerful 1% stories that resonates to me is the story of 'Chicken Soup For the Soul' by Jack Canfield. The majority of us have heard of this book and the 8,000 other books basically that have stemmed from the Chicken Soup mantra. However, what we don't know is that this book would have never been what it was unless Jack had the 1% daily mindset.
When Jack and his partner Mark Victor Hansen brought the book to New York, every single one of the main publishers turned them down. Finally a small publisher in Florida took them on and the book was released. Without a bang. It didn't hit any Top NYT Best Selling charts. Nothing.
However, Jack and Mark did something every day to further the book along and adopted the 1% daily mentality. After a year of Chicken Soup for the Soul's release, it hit the New York Times Best Sellers list. And it didn't stop there!
Now Chicken Soup for the Soul has been published in over 100 countries and sold over 500 million copies becoming the highest paperback selling series of ALL TIME! Might be a little power in the 1% mindset after all ; )
If you’re looking to make a drastic improvement or monumental change quickly, good luck. Maybe you’ll see a few signs of it working, but the flame will soon burn out.
But if you focus on taking small micro 1% steps daily you will not only conquer what you set out to achieve but here to tell you that you will more than likely do things you never even thought you had the capability to do.
37.7834343328871588776….. in one year
Just think what that would equal in 5 years, 10 years, 20 years!!!
Write out every morning while drinking your coffee or favorite tea what is the one thing you can pour into that day ensuring you will be taking a 1% step forward in that area. You can have one bucket you are pouring into or (like myself) many.
Do this for an entire month and it has now become a habit. And trust me, 10 years from now you will thank me you did!
