You might have a boring job.
When I had my first part time, minimum wage, job it was like “monkey see, monkey do." The boss would read a rule book. And like worker drones, we would follow their demands. I was payed around $12 an hour, that is worth one meal up here in Canada. And not even a nice one.
Because I did not believe in my own value. I had no idea I could become an entrepreneur and make a killing out of my own blood, sweat and will.
But most importantly, I had no idea HOW to become an entrepreneur.
Like most people, I thought If I just did what I thought was cool, as soon as I saw how I could sell it, everyone would buy.
I would just need to show them my beautiful product and everyone would be an “insta buy" customer.
I just had to make sure I got my product just right….
If you are anything like me, you are coming from the right place. You want to make a difference, you want to improve the condition of this beautiful planet. And you think you know exactly how to do it. If only people saw that too ... Right?
If you are in the same boat, and are creating a social business, but don’t know how to get a sale, then read on.
Because in this post you will learn a tactic on “how to make an impact, make a difference and keep your focus” that has worked for thousands.
If you manage to master the skill of staying focused, you'll complete more, people around you will be more excited about joining in on your mission. You will more readily have a steady stream of paying customers and people will be more likely to put their faith in you.
So, ready to hear it?
Great! Let’s dive in…
Business Mind Mastery Technique #1: Use The Prioritizing Method Of The Billionaire Class And Get Iron Level Focus
There was a study of top level entrepreneurs in England in the 1990’s.
There were maybe 200 in a room. About 75% were worthless. They did not have a penny to their name.
The rest were pretty good. Millionaire level good.
What do you think the one thing that separated the good from the great?
You could say it was all of those things and none of them.
It was focus.
Big surprise eh?
All it took, to go from broke, to good, to great, was focus.
But in today's world it is next to impossible to focus. There is an all out war on focus. I have even heard that at very high levels of politics and business, there are “Attention Markets” like the stock market. With mega powers bidding for the attention of entire countries and populations…
If you have seen your phone’s youtube home screen recently, it is like the home page is getting more and more irrelevant. With massive variety. How can you dive into any topic deeply like that?
Maybe that is not the purpose of any social media; to go deep….
Well if you want to succeed, you have to go deep.
You have to go deep on ONE topic for at least an hour if not two.
An hour of total, solid focus on a task. That is how you get shit done.
We call that a “Power Hour” here at SuperHero Academy.
Cal Newport calls it “Deep Work” in his book of the same title.
But what about focus for the long term? “Strategic focus” that is?
You can create a bunch of click bait or random social media posts for your “business” but is that getting you closer to where you really want to go in life?
Let’s dissect your long term strategy right now using the “Visioning Exercise.”
Make a chart that looks like this:
- Start out with your long term 20+ year vision, and look at the problems you will have to face, and the things you want to do, then stair step back to now. From medium term to short term ect. Make sure it is all aligned with one another so you can see how it all fits together.
- Get all the way back to the daily actions you will have to do right now to accomplish your weekly goals. To accomplish your monthly goals to accomplish your short term goals ect.
- And now, take action RIGHT NOW.
I can’t tell you how many times this exercise has saved me. I always keep it right in front of me, so I can look a it any time I get lost in a storm of to-dos and should-dos.
If I did not do this exercise months back, I would surely be lost spinning my wheels on nothing.
There is an all out war on focus. I have even heard that at very high levels of politics and business, there are “Attention Markets” like the stock market. With mega powers bidding for the attention of entire countries and populations…
Remember, the point of this exercise, is to keep your focus strong when you are getting lost and drowning in possibility. It is the north star of the ship that is you and your business.
So take action now and stick to it.
