The Only 3 Things You Need to Enter the Top 1% in Anything You Do



be the best

Life is very different for anyone who is in the top 1%. Whether you are an entrepreneur, actor, athlete, doctor, author or motivational speaker – the top 1% earn at least 10 times more than others.

So for instance if you look at the highest paid actors like Dwayne Johnson or Shah Rukh Khan, they earn exponentially more than others in their fields. The same goes for JK Rowling, Richard Branson, Tony Robbins, Deepak Chopra and so many more who form the top 1% of their respective fields.

This is something that has been true throughout history. The top 1% are rewarded differently – this is the reason communism failed. I luckily realized this at a very young age and immediately wanted to be in the top 1% of whatever I did. When I started selling at the age of 5, I wanted to master sales. When I wrote my first book, ‘Invest The Happionaire Way’, I wanted it to be a #1 Bestseller and when I became a motivational speaker, I wanted to be the world’s best!

Whatever I do, I want to be in the top 1% – this is the belief I start with and once I enter the top 1%, I don’t like to stop, I want to then move into the top 0.1% and then when I achieve that, move into the top 0.01%. As they say, growth is life!

First find out what is it that you really want in life and then follow these incredible strategies to enter the top 1%:

1. Belief

Nothing is more powerful than belief. When you believe you are the best and nothing can stop you, you immediately start behaving that way. A very powerful strategy that has given proven results is to already believe you have succeeded and ask yourself – “How would I behave if I knew I would certainly succeed? How would I behave if I was the most powerful person in my field?”

You would certainly be a lot more confident and passionate. People can sense and feel this. Our mindset defines our life. People at the top knew they were meant to be there, even when others didn’t!

“To be a champ you have to believe in yourself when no one else will.” – Sugar Ray Robinson

2. Action

Simply having a belief is not enough. A belief without action is a dream and a fantasy. Action is more powerful than anything else. No matter what you want to do and achieve, you need to take action.

The people in the top 1% do not have special super powers; they are the ones who took the most action. The more action you take, the more practice you get, the more you learn and the better you become. You are able to quickly learn from mistakes and move ahead.

My first seminar had only five people, but I knew I had to keep taking action to master my skills and let people experience results. Today, our seminars are a hundred times the size of when I started out with and we still want to grow. Anyone who is at the top was not handed things on a platter. They took action and moved up. Overnight success usually takes several nights of sleeplessness to achieve.

3. Focus

I was a super naughty kid. I used to take a magnifying glass and focus the sun’s light and end up burning leaves, paper and sometimes even ants. Those experiences as a small boy taught me the power of focus. The sun’s rays become amazingly powerful when the magnifying glass is used to focus.

Similarly in life, if we were to bring in laser like focus towards what we want, we will achieve it. Focus is very important because it makes sure we are not distracted and continue using our energies towards our goal and nothing else.

You will also be able to burn and kill all your challenges with focus – the way I did with the ants. I guarantee you that if you practice these strategies with complete faith and focus, you will certainly be the master of your life and destiny!

“It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.” – Aristotle Onassis
