Imagine two people…
The first person does everything the right way, by the book, all the time.
The second person doesn't do everything the right way. The second person just does whatever it takes to succeed.
Which of these two people do you think are going to succeed?
The person who does everything the right way by the book? Or the person who does whatever it takes?
Easy answer. The person who does whatever it takes, the second person, is going to get all the results.
Why is that? It's because doing everything the right way is actually the wrong way.
WHY YOU SHOULDN'T DO THINGS THE “RIGHT WAY”
If doing things the right way was actually the right way, then everybody would be rich, wouldn't they?
Everybody tries to follow the same path going the “right way” but very few people succeed. The ones who do succeed always did it in a different way than what is taught.
You hear people say: “His methods are not the right way, but he's getting results. I just don't understand. His methods are wacky and out there. It's not the right way. I'm doing everything the right way. And I'm not getting any results and he's cheating and stealing all my results that I worked so hard for.”
THE “RIGHT WAY” IS THE WRONG WAY
Everybody follows “the right way” and they get nowhere. That should be obvious because everybody who succeeded did it out of the ordinary.
They did it outside of the box. They didn't follow the stupid right way method that everyone else follows.
They just did what it takes to succeed and they got everywhere.
Those people, successes, are called “cheaters” by people who follow the right way. Cheaters succeed. Everybody who does things the right way does not succeed.
THE “RIGHT WAY” VS THE WAY THAT ACTUALLY WORKS
The right way is a delusion. It was designed by people who got nowhere and then they told you to do the same thing.
Unfortunately, many people still listen to what is the “right way” instead of listening to what is the correct way.
The right way pretends to be good and wholesome and ethical, but it's an illusion. You either get from A to B or you don't, you either get results or you don't.
So how do you actually get results? Results come from doing what it takes! Results don't come from following the plan and doing things the “right way.”
“I'm doing everything the right way and I'm not getting anywhere and that person is cheating and getting my results.”
The next time this thought pops into your head you can think about it like this: “Hmmm… maybe that person is doing things the right way and I've been doing things the wrong way this whole time.”
Everybody knows what the “right way” is. But If it were truly the right way don't you think you would see results? Don't you think everybody would see results?
The only people who get real results are people who do things out of the ordinary.
If they're successful it's because they're doing what works. They're doing it the actually right way.
If you're not successful it's because you're doing what doesn't work.
The “right way” is only the right way to stay in the middle of the pack. To go straight to the top, you've got to do things the “wrong way” and do what it takes.
You'll find that when you do what it takes, rather than what's the “right way”, that it's actually easy to succeed.
YOU HAVE TO DO WHAT FLOYD MAYWEATHER DID
Ask Floyd Mayweather how hard boxing is. It's as easy as breathing to him. To you it's hard, to him it's easy.
If whatever you're doing is hard, you probably weren't cut out for it and you're probably wasting your time.
Seriously. If you find whatever you're doing to be very hard, you're in the wrong career.
They say “hard work and blah, blah, blah. Study hard, hard work. If it's not hard it's not worth it” but the people that say that are always unsuccessful.
Doing what you're good at is not hard. It's only hard for everybody else but you.
What you excel in is not hard. What you make your fortune in is not hard.
It's tough. It's grueling. It's grinding. It's constant. It's draining. It's tricky sometimes. It's never‑ending, but it isn't hard.
Just ask Floyd how hard boxing is. He'll laugh.
Do what Floyd did: Stick with the one thing in your life that you excel at rather than jumping around to many different things that you fail at.
FIND WHAT IS EASY AND MAXIMIZE IT
You have to find whatever it is that comes easy to you and then maximize it.
When you're good at something, it comes naturally to you. It isn't a chore and it isn't hard.
If it's hard for you to do, it's not your number one thing.
That's why I write, that's why Floyd boxes and that's why you should do the same thing – pick something that you excel at and stick with it.
But what about making money?
Here's the secret to making a lot of money: You can make money doing basically anything, as long as you're good at it.
All you have to do is be you. All you ever had to do was be you.
They money always follows talent. Just ask Floyd.
You just be you. I'll be me. Floyd will be Floyd.
Everybody else will be busy working hard and doing things the “right way” and getting nowhere.
You'll be too busy to care because you'll be too busy getting somewhere.
When you get there, remember to give better directions to the next guy in line.
Until next time.
