From the moment we are born, we are taught that 1 + 1 = 2
That it’s a mere math equation and that it applies to all things in the universe.
That the universe can be broken down into mathematical equations to measure space and time.
But the interesting thing is….
The more I experience in life and business, the more I find that to NOT be true.
That we were fooled from the start.
And that this is the very reason why so many people get stuck in a rut, and can’t seem to climb their way to the top.
They can’t seem to “crack the code” and don’t understand why their neighbor makes a million while they make 1/10th of that…
Why are their results in life so different?
It’s because they believed that 1 + 1 = 2.
That for every ACTION there is a REACTION.
We’re taught that in science class right?
But what if I told you that in life and business, 1 + 1 can be equal to zero…
And it can also be equal to one thousand…
You see what I have found is that the true equation of the universe is something called the “compound effect”.
And those that understand this and use it to their advantage can create an extraordinary life for themselves.
While those that expect 1 + 1 to equal 2 will get left behind wondering why none of what they do is working….
Let me give you some food for thought…
Look at where you are in life now.
Think about the job you have, the house you live in, the car you drive…
Take a moment to reflect.
Can you trace your current situation to a single momentaneous action?
Or was it a series of events and decisions, that have compounded themselves to lead you where you are today?
You see the secret of success in life and business isn’t some “hack” or some “innovative strategy” that you’re not using.
It’s consistent action over long periods of time.
It’s grinding it out day in day out while everything you do is equal to 0 right now and brings you zero results.
But you keep your vision towards the long term goal and you keep fighting forward.
And eventually those same actions which were equal to 0 before, have finally compounded and are now equal to 1000…
