The Real Life Success Formula

Ok broham, we’ve got a little something to talk about today.

This actually came up in my private Facebook group
So I thought it’d be a great idea to share my thoughts with
Everyone, since I believe this is something very important
That we all should know.
Ok so there 3 things that I think that we should all know.
Two of them they teach early on in school, but unfortunately
The third, not so much.
What are they?
Pretty simple really…
Addition, Subtraction, and the 80/20 or
As it’s formally called, Pareto principle
The first two (I hope) you already know, but the last one
You may not be so familiar with.
So let me break it down in our language so we can talk.
The 80/20 principle is simply about the law of averages.
It’s actually a principle of nature that is based on chaos theory.
Essentially what it amounts to is that 20% of what you do is
Going to amount to 80% of your results
It’s something you see everywhere.
20% of the population has 80% of the wealth
The average person uses 20% of their phone apps 80% of the time
20% of the clothes you wear probably 80% of the time
Most contractors use only 20% of their tools for 80% of their work.
You see it everywhere and when you understand what it is
You can use it to help you in everyday life.
First of all, you will see that in nature nothing can be equal
So, if you’re hoping for a society where everyone has equal
Wealth or what have you, then you’re gonna be fighting nature
And that my friend, is a tough battle. 
To get the full potential of the 80/20 rule, you are going to have
To find whatever it is that you are good at and get better.
Because when you do, then you can be one of the top 20% that makes
80% of the wealth in your respective field. 
Not everyone is going to be a billionaire, but if everyone works
To their fullest potential and finds power through their strength
Then everyone can and will eventually help society
Become stronger as a whole. 
So do yourself (and society) a favor and stop living in the 80%
Start by knowing thyself. 
Sounds a little vague, but you can gain clarity by first 
Getting in touch with yourself (ha…touch yourself) with daily
Meditation and exercise. These two are also part of the 80/20
They don’t take long, but have a huge benefit on your psyche and
Help you produce amazing results in the rest of your life.
If you aren’t sure how to do either or want a little help

ACME Dynamite Never Works

Every once in awhile (less often than I would like to admit), I like to analyze what I’m doing. You know, take a quick check to see if what I’m doing in my business is working.

You really get an ego check in trying to run a successful business because on one end, you want to GSD (Get Shit Done) but at the same time, you want to make sure that what you are getting done is the right “S”

You see broham, I have dreams and aspirations just like you. My goal is to be running a million dollar business by next October.

Yeah that’s 6 zeros buddy.

2 years ago I wrote a check to myself for a million dollars and I put it up on my door so I know that’s what I’m working for every time I step out the door.

Since then, the stakes have gone up because of the birth of my son and I hate to admit that right now I’d have to move the decimal point a few places to get close to that.

In a way I’m worried, because I still make mistakes that are easily preventable and I keep having to start over on a few projects I’m working on for the winter and spring.

But on the same end, I’m confident, because unlike 2 years ago, when I used to just throw stuff up on social media and around town, I now use my time and resources to
Get feedback on my efforts, by collecting data from ads and emails (like this one you’re reading now). To see whats working instead of wasting

TIME waiting and HOPING FOR a good result.

It’s the same as fitness dude. I see people always latching on to the latest fad or the newest gimmick. Weighted hula hoops, Herbalife, CrossFit…the list goes on.

But the number one thing they are all lacking is personal accountability.

You see care bear, the $1,000,000 question is how do you get to your goal if you’re trying everything and not really doing anything.

It’s like when Wild E. Coyote would get all those road runner traps and spend so long setting them up only for them not to work and get painfully injured in the execution.

You see that road runner is our elusive goal and the only way we can catch it, is not with fancier traps, but with better execution.

The General Fitness Company, is the ultimate road runner catcher. I make goals easier to catch and then help you in plotting on bigger and tastier ones.

Don’t spend any more time or money on these diet traps or quick fixes. The only quick fix is to realize that those don’t work.

Ready to stop chasing those goals and actually catch them for once?

P.S. Road runner cartoons were actually my favorite. Watch this one where the roadrunner actually got caught:
