I used to always wonder what it took to become rich and successful.
Being an immigrant and all I’ve always had a hang-up with money and never being able to make enough of it.
And growing up broke and living in Section 8 housing made me want to become a millionaire… so that’s where my search for the “secret” began.
Since then I’ve been blessed to reach my money goals…
…and these days my achievement goals are to build businesses that create opportunities for driven people who want to level up in any category of life.
So here’s what I know about the science of achievement:
In order for you to achieve the next level of growth, success or transformation you’ve got to put in enough effort to create the necessary change.
The best example I can give you is how boiling water turns into steam…
Water turns to steam at 212 degrees. Not 211 degrees. If it’s at 211 degrees you’ll just have boiling water.
In order for water to transform to steam (air), you only need to raise the temperature by 1 degree.
This 1-degree is the difference between water being used for tea or to powering a nuclear power plant.
Just one degree of change.
So why should you care about this 1 degree?
That one degree transforms water to steam at a molecular level.
If you ever face adversity, you must transform yourself to overcome them in order to get to the next level.
And for you to transform you must put in that extra degree of effort.
See, that’s what most people don’t realize about success and achievement… it’s not like you have to work 10X harder than everyone else.
Change and transformation happens when you increase your effort over time just by one more degree.
Going from 211 degrees to 212 degrees is what building transforms what into steam.
That extra degree can help you…
– Start that new side hustle.
– Graduate from The Project.
– Quit your 9-5 and go into business for yourself.
– Go from making 6-figures to 7-figures a year.
– Finally lose weight and get back into shape.
So with that being said, if you want that next level of achievement and transformation in your life, just remember that all it takes is putting in that little bit of extra effort over time.
PS. The next Modern Day Knight Project class is taking place in a month. If you’re a man and you’re looking to change and transform in business and in life then this might be EXACTLY what you’re looking for.
