Key Points

1. Master One Thing

Do not seek to be a jack of all trades and a master of none.

Our market does not reward this kind of shallow focus.

Instead, find your one thing.

Find the one thing that you are passionate about, that you love, and that you can do better than the other 99% of the population combined.

Once you have found that one thing, double down on it and commit to absolute mastery.

It will take time, it will take pain, and it will require sacrifice.

But it will be worth it.

History remembers those who were great at one thing.

It never remembers those who were good at a few.

2. Put Your Ego to the Side

We all like to think that we are special, that we are unique.

We all like to think that everybody else who came before us had it wrong and that we somehow have it right.

This is bogus.

Stop trying to reinvent the wheel, and instead just roll (no pun intended) with what works.

Find successful people and model what they are doing.

Innovation can only occur once you have a strong grasp of the foundational principles of your craft.

As the old saying goes, “A young man knows all the rules, and an old man all the exceptions.”

3. Get Around People Who Are Playing at a Higher Level

Do you want to know how to get rich quick?

How to really get rich quick?

Drop every single friend that you have right now and spend time exclusively in the presence of people who are playing the game at least 2-3 levels above you.

It’s that simple.

If you want to level up your game, you must first level up your social circle.

Whenever you spend time around people who are playing the game at a higher level, you will start to pick up on their habits, on their mindsets, and on their strategies.

This is the fastest way to grow yourself, your company, and your bottom line.

4. Ask for a Little More 

The only difference between a 6 figure earner and a 7 figure earner is that the 7 figure earner is willing to ask for more.

When a 6 figure earner will smile and take the win, the 7 figure earner will keep pushing and pushing for more.

They will continue pursuing the next deal, even after their base needs are met.

If you want to break six figures and earn your first seven, then all that you need to do is go a little bit longer, push a little bit harder, and ask for a little bit more.

It might sound simple, but in the long run, these tiny little changes make a huge difference in your trajectory.

5. The Fastest Way to Change a Limiting Belief is Experience  

If you want to break out of your limiting beliefs, then you must embrace risk and start building up a repertoire of experiences that counter your negative beliefs.

For example, if you believe that you are bad with women and want to change that belief, simply go out 5 times a week and approach at least 5 girls.

Over the course of that one week, I all but promise you that one girl will react positively and give you her number or set up a date with you.

Guess what?

As soon as this happens, you have completely disproven your limiting belief.

And when you can strategically apply this tactic to every belief that is holding you back, you will start to see amazing success unfold in every area of your life.

    An outstanding call-to-action from a remarkable young entrepreneur. Jonathan Decollibus is a fresh wind for influential people. My professional life changed in the very moment I read his last book (my “landscape” changed, indeed). I do recommend him and his works.
