Being part of the one percent of the most successful people in the world is a pretty good life. Those are the people who get to do what they want. They have passion and intimacy and body pride. They have thriving businesses and have the time and energy to do the things they love in life. They get out every day and accomplish what they want without having to worry about their energy on a consistent basis.
Do you ever wonder why the top one percent are able to achieve at such high levels of success?
The answer to this question is near and dear to my heart. If you can embrace what you learn in this article, it will change your life in ways you never thought possible. It’s a simple concept promising you will never again struggle to live from paycheck to paycheck again. You won’t have to keep a job you don’t like just to survive. You will enjoy the passion, intimacy, energy and success of the one percent.
Living as the 99% Percent (Unsuccessful People)
Living from paycheck to paycheck isn’t all bad when you are in your twenties, thirties or even forties. But imagine having to sustain your lifestyle with a job and “God-Forbid” something happens to your health or something happens in your family and you couldn’t manage to help them. You’d be bankrupt if you didn’t get a paycheck each week. Unfortunately, this is the story for most people in the ninety-nine percent.
Finances are only a part of the problem. It carries over into all other aspects of your life too.
- 95% percent of the people are not in a happy relationship. If they are in a relationship, it doesn’t bring them the fulfillment and happiness they want.
- 95% percent of the people living in developed nations have health that is just barely surviving. Meaning they are in the kind of shape where they don’t have the energy to get out there and thrive to do incredible things.
The question is this: Do you want to survive and be part of the 95% or do you want to thrive? Do you want to live life as part of the five percent? More importantly, would you like to join me in a group of people who want to live as the ONE percent?
The way to make that happen…to become part of the one percent, you will have to start doing what the one percent does.
A Powerful Morning Routine for the Most Successful
Here’s a question for you. Yesterday morning, when you are driving to work, what percentage of the freeway was full of cars? If you got up about 6-7 like most people and got on the freeway between 8-9 o’clock only to get stuck in traffic – guess what – you’re with the ninety-five percent.
Now, if you are like me and got up around 4 o’clock in the morning, or even earlier and got on the road about 4:30 you’re not going to see traffic. Why? Because you are living among the one percent of the most successful people in the world.
It’s not about getting up at 4 in the morning because you have to. I get up early because I want to. I enjoy it. I like being part of the one percent. I like being someone who pushes myself to the next level.
There are many advantages to beating the sun up in the morning. I find the first three hours of my day are as productive as the entire rest of my day. No phone is ringing and I am able to focus on the big projects before others get to work.
We all have different circadian rhythms, but you can train your body to get up earlier. If you get the right kind of sleep and eat the right kind of foods, you can get up early. You may have to push through a period of grogginess, but the effort will have a big payoff.
Others in the One Percent
Make a list of the people you would recognize as the One Percenters. No doubt these names would be included: Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffet, President Obama, Apple’s CEO Tim Cook, Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, Xerox CEO Ursula Burns, Disney CEO Bob Iger, former President’s George HW and George W Bush. Everyone of these highly accomplished leaders get up very early in the morning.
All these people have done pretty well and getting up early works for them. Why not give it a try and earn a spot in the top one percent of the most successful people you know!
