“Success often comes to those who dare to act. It seldom goes to the timid who are ever afraid of the consequences.” – Jawaharlal Nehru
You would have noticed that I share my personal experiences on this blog which is one of the goals of creating this blog. I live my life based on the principles that I believe in. You are free to examine these principles carefully and I hope you can learn from my experiences.
These principles were proven by great men to be effective in achieving one’s goal in life, be it business or personal goals. You can read my experience on how I got my first job without applying for a job for a peep into my world.
One of the goals behind ideasplusbusiness.com is to help people see why they need to change their minds, get off their comfort zone and take responsibility for their life. You have to be in charge of your life because you are in charge of your life and business.
I don’t like the fact that most people tend to play “the blame game”. No one ever wins this game. It is one of the few games which you can never win no matter how hard you try or how long you’ve been playing it. Quit this game today and change your life.
I used to play this game but quickly discovered that it is counterproductive. It is a waste of my time and my energy. Where you are today is as a result of your action or inaction at a particular point in your life. Get up, take charge and keep moving up.
Some weeks back, I listened to Brian Tracy’s Power of Clarity audio book and there I heard about using the Grand Slam Rule which is an essential part of his focal point coaching system. Slam is simply an acronym for simplify, leverage, accelerate and multiply. The “grand” before the slam is to lay emphasis on the effectiveness of this rule.
To simplify is to keep it short and simple (KISS). Learn to kiss every day and experience a turnaround in your life and business. Who doesn’t love a great kisser?
Leverage is to make use of the abundant resources around you. Use other people’s knowledge, time, money, skills, energy, etc., to get all your work done.
Accelerate is to work faster and with the same quality. To achieve more success, you have to move fast. Successful people always work faster.
The fourth word multiply basically is about how you grow. It is all about how you focus on the items of more value in your life.
Of a truth, the grand slam rule is a very effective rule in achieving great success. It recently occurred to me that prior to listening to this audio, I have been using this rule without me knowing it. I can vividly remember how I made quick cash in 7 days during my years as an undergraduate in the university without spending a dime.
I applied the grand slam rule instinctively without me realizing it then. Earning an additional #20,000 (about 120 USD at that time) to my monthly stipend within 7 days as a student, in my part of the world, considering the economic situation is a great feat. Especially when you attend a top rated federal university like mine where the academic rigor is enough to suck life out of you.
