What is a "Shorcut"? Glad you ask. It's not
words and methods sure to bring faster results
Another way to look at Shorcuts, Shortcuts, and PowerGems:
Words or actions that shorten the time it takes to get there
Any words/actions that consistently produce faster, better results
We can easily agree that people with 10 or 20 years of excellence know about obstacles to avoid. Most people who claim twenty years' experience usually have more like four years of experience repeated five times over. We refer here to those individuals who demonstrate word-class results repeatedly. These are the truest experts. When experts in a given field, such as ten Olympic
Champions, ten multimillionaires, ten great teachers, unanimously agree that something specific should be avoided, there's little chance they're wrong, provided they're not economists.
Similarly, when ten Olympic Champions, ten multi-millionaires, AND ten great teachers all issue similar statements of an abiding belief
that a big part of their success is because they wrote their dream on paper with a date, listing
the obstacles and the people who can help get rid of the obstacles, free of any knowledge that the other twenty-nine have said the same thing, it sounds like a pattern, what we call A Guaranteed Shortcut. Never been known to fail.
When the number of masters and millionaires who offer this information climbs into the scores, the hundreds, and even the thousands, one by one, individually gleaned from interviews and/or breaking bread with these extraordinary role models of success -- we have Power Shortcuts -- sometimes referred to as PowerGems.
No matter who, what, or where you are in life, PowerGems are
universally utile: they work. Start now. Suspend your opinion and put this to use today:
This is one of the ten most powerful shortcuts a human being can ever hope to learn. 100% of us understand this, 93% are too profoundly stupid to tap into it, on purpose, in the next few minutes. Before 100 attempts are complete, you double the number of yesses you receive.
PowerGems tend to work in just minutes!! Time for a better mind-set, hm? When I'm interested in a lady, I don't ask her if she wants to dine with or date me, or if she's busy this weekend.   That's like deciding to walk a race because you figure you won't win it.
These are yes/no questions, which are to be avoided, do you understand? Don't ask if...
ask when, ask which, ask what color, what flavor... ...
consistently offering alternative
choices, rather than just 'yes' or 'no.' Keep in mind that yes or no means, at best, a fifty percent chance of getting what you want. Instantly increase your probabilities by offering two or more affirmative choices,
choices that you decide upon, rather than allowing to be decided for you.
I tell her I'd like to take her out for Chinese food on Friday night, unless she'd
get a bigger thrill of seeing the exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum on Saturday.
"Oh, you're busy both days? Okay, Sunday afternoon they have a special Laserium show at the Hayden Planetarium. Does that sound exciting OR would a quiet dinner at Luigi's Monday night please you more?"
Offer choices! You'll see fast, pleasing results. Try it now.
Quicker, better results.
If you're smart enough to be asking more questions, combine it with this Power Shortcut by
asking more and better questions
in the next few minutes.
Who can help you get there? Call them up in the next 5 minutes, and ask them if they'd like to help you by doing this, or would they feel more comfortable by doing that?
It's powerful, it's immediate, and it will positively impact the rest of your life. Ask. Ask. Ask.
Please don't nod your head, tucking this away for future use.
If you really knew better, you'd be doing better, wouldn't you? Use it immediately,
watch what happens. ENORMOUS results; guaranteed. The same minute that you put your list of possible 'helpers' on paper, you begin thinking of
additional people to add to the list. By the time you get a hundred people on your list,
you will find that at least a few of them are saying 'YES' to you, others are getting
closer to saying yes. If this shorcut alone is not enough to stimulate you to
acting on it, put your seat belt on, you're about to get smarter. What's especially exciting about this is that, hidden in the act of asking, right here you have another awe-inspiring,
instantly life-changing benefit: every time you get a 'NO' from a particular person,
you are now mathematically one time closer to having that person say yes.
The inventor who lost more money for more of his financial backers than any other inventor before or since?
That was the same guy who told a NY Times reporter at a news conference that he had not failed ten thousand times, rather, had learned ten thousand ways NOT to
invent the electric light bulb, that he simply took ten thousand steps in order to announce at that news conference that he, Thomas Edison, had indeed invented a successful electric light bulb.
Now maybe you know more than Thomas Edison, or think you do. In point of fact, Edison also made more money for his backers than a thousand other inventors combined We have no doubt that you may well be a legend in your own mind. Simply examine the paper-thin difference between knowing it, and proving it. That single-ply tissue-thickness is a matter of a few minutes per day. As with most subjects, talk is cheap. What you do speaks so loudly we really can't hear a word you're saying.
The sole purpose of this document is to pound into your head that you have what amounts to a magic genie between your ears, that you can make huge leaps in a single day or two. Since learning this I've tripled my results in a dozen of my favorite areas, with as little as fifteen minutes per day. Before you know it, the minutes of superfocus add up to hundreds, then thousands of those little 15-minute chunks. Wow. How would you like to read a book or two per day, every day? I've been doing it since my tenth birthday, which was a bit more than ten thousand days ago. For me, it's worth two hours and more per day. It has certainly helped in the pursuit of radio shows, guitar, piano, breaking a hundred sales records for a half-dozen large NY companies... ...and 12,000 hand-created, completely free web pages... just for you.
I haven't gotten any smarter; I've simply learned more high-powered shortcuts from my role models, reading about and interacting with them; then setting out to duplicate their precise words and efforts, just as Grandma does with a recipe. My role models are those who do things at world-class levels repeatedly. The most exciting, encouraging fact to emerge from so many years, so many thousands of days of studying and interacting with winners is that every single last one of them, every girl Jill and every man Jack, every single world-class leader has overcome obstacles much bigger than yours. The proof is that they moved past their obstacles while you're still making pipsqueak efforts with your enormous reservoir of resources.
The more times you ask the same person for something, the closer they get to saying what you want to hear more than anything else: "Yes."
When you ask ten people, twenty, and thirty, the absolute likelihood of you getting whatever it is that you want multiplies with the sweet taste of something called synergy, where one plus one equals more than two.
Synergy is when two equal items added together create something that's more than double, even though that does not make sense to a mathematician.
If you've ever tried to walk more steps along a railroad track than your brother or cousin on the other track, then you know that getting up to 20 and 30 steps along that narrow rail takes many, many tries.
As Zig Ziglar reminded us, what do you think happens when two such people reach out and join hands? Aha!! The two of you can walk farther and faster without tripping or slipping off the rail,
because of the magic of synergy, where one plus one equals more than two.
Can you handle another major secret, a superlative shortcut that will actually give you power over other people, and more so when you use it for mutual benefit? Get ready, this one's big.
It's that simple.
Ask a human being for something specific -- seven or more times -- and their ability to say 'No' diminishes, even as their likelihood of saying 'Yes' increases -- with near-mathematical similarity. You might look up the word 'apposite' in the dictionary.
It fits here.
Obviously, asking fifty people significantly increases the likelihood of you obtaining you what you want. The way to guarantee getting what you want is to ask each person repeatedly until they say yes.
Find new ways to ask. You knew this as a three-year old asking, then demanding, then crying for, and finally wheedling your way into that ice cream from the truck.
True, or not? Well, guess what?
It works great for adults, too, even better, in fact, since adults do have communication and 'asking skills' at least moderately better than those of a child. Go ahead. Find new and creative
ways to ask each person on your asking list more and more and more...
until you hear that sweet word: 'YES!'
Decide what you most want. Resolve to ask at least three different people per day for help
in getting it, three per day, thirty-one days in a row. You will be thrilled, perhaps even astonished. Remember, PowerGem means getter there faster, consistently faster.
By consistently focusing on the fact that it's one of the greatest, fastest shortcuts in existence, you will just as consistently produce faster, better results.
As with every PowerGem and Shorcut, your opinion is of little interest, well,
actually, of no interest at all, because it's of no benefit to any of us, least of all the most important person on the planet, until it's been used a hundred times or more. Then and only then is a person qualified to offer a licit opinion. And if
you're in any way uncertain about who's the most important person alive, you'd better run into the bathroom and ask the mirror. Ask ask ask.
Repetition is the
mother of every human skill.
Using Shorcuts produces phenomenal results.
GO FOR IT!!
