One of my goals this year is to actually read LESS.
Less books, that is.
Aiming to read one book, twice a month.
They say we only retain 10% of what we read, so I am re-reading some of my favorites.
And since I spell my name ADDam, I probably only retain 3.7%
The first book I am re-reading first is The Slight Edge
And I believe that book, holds the secret to success.
It is all about doing the daily work, day in & day out.
Consistency is key.
He talks about a fable between 2 boys.
The Dad offers the boys a choice — a million smackaroos TODAY, or a penny that is doubled everyday for 30 days.
The one boy takes the million immediately!
He’s set for life, or so he thinks.
The other boy, takes the penny.
After day 14, he only has $81.92
Maybe he made a mistake?
Day 20 he is at $5,242.88.
He’s gaining some momentum, but 2/3 of the way through and he is no where near a million smackaroos like his brother.
With 5 days to go, he is only at $167,772.16.
But something amazing happens…
On day 28, he crosses over the 1 million mark.
And on day 30, he’s sitting at $5,368,709.12
This all started with ONE penny.
How’d this happen?
The philosophy of the Slight Edge.
And that is the secret to success with your Shopify store (or ANY business venture).
So many are looking for the shortcuts, or the “secrets”.
A lot of people sell those “secrets” behind closed doors of a $5k+ masterminds.
All you have to do is follow this plan…
- Pick a niche (preferably something you have an interest or passion in)
- Stay commuted for 90 days (so many quit way too soon because they have RIDICULOUS expectations
- Launch a certain number of products (minimum of 5) each week (the Slight Edge)
You WILL succeed if you follow those 3 steps, I can just about guaran-damn-tee it.
I know, not the sexiest advice, huh?
Not bright & shiny like everyone else talks about.
It does involve work —EEK!
You have to have thick skin, as you’re going to fail.
You have to push through that.
And this is where most fail — they throw in the towel after a couple weeks.
You’re not going to succeed at anything giving up that soon.
