Everyone on the planet has 168 hours in the week. What we do with those hours gets us closer to long-term goals, or leave us at the exact same spot we were last week, last month, even last year. Building a business takes time, and maybe you’re working a job, putting in long hours, and so your concern is: Where are you going to find the time to build a successful business??????
Here’s a Typical Scenario of what people do with their time each week:
Maybe you get 8 hours of Sleep 8 * 7 = 56 hours per week
Driving to work 1 hour and 1 hour = 2 hours * 7 = 14 hours per week
Your full-time JOB (Just Over Broke) = 40 hours per week
Breakfast, lunch, dinner 1 hour each = 3 * 7 = 21 hours per week
Laundry, clean house, misc. stuff = 5 hours per week
Total time equals 136 hours per week
168 in the week minus 136 hours leaves 32 hours per week left over. Times 4, that’s 128 hours per month. 1,664 hours per year. Where does all that time go? For most people, it’s spent watching TV. Maybe TV stands for Taking our Volume away as in potential Group Volume!
Remember the 3 Keys of moving from Desire to change our lives to Decision. First, we craft a plan. Then we put that plan into motion. Finally the third step is believing in the opportunity, belief in those we are associated with, belief in ourselves, believe we deserve to truly be incredible successful and get out of the poverty consciousness energy!
If you’re tired of just breaking even every month, turn off the TV, video games, what ever you’re doing that takes your valuable time, as time is our most precious commodity! We all know we can never get wasted time back!!
We could also focus on being more efficient with our time and cutting down the 136 hours per week for our list of things we do, from cleaning the house, or re-arranging our desk again….
We become what we focus on. When you meet a successful leader, if you could follow their daily schedule, you’ll quickly discover how busy they are focused on small goals that all make up the larger goal. They are absolutely driven and put in long hard hours every day, driven to achieve their goal by helping others achieve their goals!
Laser Focused Determination to Reach a Huge Goal: Leaders are DRIVEN!!!
We get up an hour earlier each day or go to sleep an hour later each night picking up 1 hour per day or 7 hours weekly.
The TV goes on at 7 pm and off at 11:30. 4.5 hours with the last half hour mostly negative news prior to going to sleep. 4 x 7 = 28 hours
Shaving off 1 hour from our daily sleep routine and turning off the TV provides us an extra 35 to 40 hours per week. That’s the same time we’re working a JOB, making someone else wealthy – the boss or Company owner.
With focus, we could get our chores done faster, maybe pick up another hour or two by focusing on being more efficient in other areas of our lives. After all, work hard now, so we can all play later. Maybe even cruising the world!
Think about it: If you focused 30 to 40 hours per week calling through prospects you could reach a few good people every day. 60 to 80 people per week. Just the game of numbers tells us the more people we talk to, the more confident we get at presenting the story, and you’ll begin experience very different results! As a matter of fact, very soon, people will be looking up to you, as a growing successful leader!
Finding a few good people requires talking daily to people, sharing the vision, opening the door to an opportunity that can change their financial challenges…! When people are financially sound, their health improves, their relationships improve, they begin making a positive impact on their community, and much more….!
Take charge of your life, take charge of your future by becoming a master at managing your time. That is a huge secret to successful people. You have the power to become incredibly successful, if you make the decision today to focus the time to achieve your goal, however big your goals may be!
168 hours per week – make those precious hours work for you! 🙂
