The One Thing Insanely Successful Entrepreneurs Do That You Don't

It’s no accident.

And it’s certainly not luck.

Do Elon Musk, Richard Branson, Cristiano Ronaldo, Mark Zuckerberg, and Michael Jordan know something you don’t?

You bet they do.

They’re all doing something that’s tipping the odds overwhelmingly in their favor.

It’s how they’re taking over industries, breaking records, why they can get 10 times more done in a day than most normal people can in a week, and ultimately it’s how they’re changing the world.

But here’s the kicker…

It all comes down to one simple thing (and most people don’t even know about it).

One thing that they use to crush their competition and make millions, even when they have a bad day.

The best part?

It’s absolutely something you can do too, and it’s so simple.

What are insanely successful people doing that you aren’t?

Read on to find out…

 

The Secret To Your Success Comes Down To These Two Things

 

You don’t have to look too far on the internet these days to find people telling you what you should be doing.

Some people swear by goji berries, whilst others say the secret is meditation, and even more talk about a bunch of other stuff like intermittent fasting, habits, sleeping patterns, books and so on.

The problem is a lot of what’s out there is either not a good fit for you, not relevant, or in most cases flat out wrong.

How many times have you tried that diet, or attempted that thing an influencer or celebrity told you would change your life?

All of those things are red herrings anyway – they’re distracting you from the real thing you should be focusing on.

No matter what the game changers are doing, they’re able to do the things they do because they’re in something I like to call ‘The Prolific Zone’.Your Prolific Zone

Whatever it is they swear by, their abilities come from them being able to perform at their peak, and that’s a direct result from being in that prolific zone.

That’s what you should focus on.

You see, that prolific zone – the source of their peak performance – is made up of two things:

Conditions and conditioning.

The entrepreneurial elite, and even the worlds best athletes, know its about tailoring those two variables to work almost unfairly in their favor.

That’s what gives them their advantage.

Take Olympic athletes for example, there’s a ‘prolific zone’ (or condition) that they need to reach in order to be able to compete at that level, let alone to actually win anything.

That’s why they spend years training for the Olympics. Years getting into that zone.

Once your mind and body get to that prolific zone, you’re able to do things at a level that most people can’t.

Can you see how insanely powerful that is? 🔥

That’s where your peak performance comes from, and that should be what you focus on. Getting there is the money-shot, not the stuff that distracts you from it.

This is why perpetual winners go the extra mile, they understand that all that matters is getting to that zone and staying there.

People often confuse talent and hard work as the two things they should either have or aspire to, when in reality it’s their conditions and conditioning. Talent and hard work are simply just puzzle pieces along the path to getting there 🧩

Your conditions (your environment) and your conditioning (your habits) are the secret to getting into and staying in your prolific zone.

It doesn’t matter how talented you are, if you’re scoffing down junk food everyday whilst couch surfing and binging Netflix, your ability to perform will evaporate pretty quickly 📉

Talent is often a substitute to conditioning too, and why you’ll see that some people can work less than others but still perform as good or better than them.

But actually staying at that level over the long term comes down to your ability to remain in your prolific zone.

This is what allows you perform at your peak in order for you to win.

Just look at Cristiano Ronaldo, he’s a brilliant example here.

There’s a reason why no matter what football club he’s been with, there are always other players who comment about how much extra time he puts in after practice, after games, and even during his down time and holidays.

Everything he does is about getting himself into that prolific zone and keeping himself there.

That’s why he’s constantly in the conversation of being one of the best footballers of all time.

Once you get into that zone for a prolonged period, things like habit and instinct start to take over, which almost become like a 12th man for you.

This is that unfair advantage I mentioned earlier in action.

So even when you have a down day or a bad week, you can still perform at a level most people only dream about.

Success is born out of those good habits, and good habits are created by routine and discipline.

Habitual discipline trumps motivation every day of the week, and winners know this.

It’s no different in business either.

Whether you like it or not, you’re competing.

You’re competing for attention, for customers, to land top employees, and against everyone else in your market.

If you want to achieve the things you dream of achieving, it all comes down to getting into that prolific zone and staying there.

So, how exactly do you do that? 🤔

 

How To Get More Done In A Day Than Your Competitors Can In A Week

 

It doesn’t matter what you do, whether you’re an actor, athlete, marketer, or entrepreneur – the more you train, the better you’ll be.

The more you put in, the more you’ll get out.

Your success and incidentally your prolific zone is found in the extra mile, which is why it is filled with so much opportunity.

The more you train the better your condition becomes, the more likely you are to win, and the more you win the less you want to lose.

Winning becomes a mentality, but more importantly it becomes a habit – thus your ability to win is directly anchored in your prolific zone 🏆

This is why how you feel, how you treat your body, how you train your mind, and how conditioned you are (these are examples of unfair advantages you can give yourself), are things that can affect your performance.

You wouldn’t expect a Formula One car to run every race smoothly without ever receiving things like services, tune ups, upgrades, new parts etc 🏎

Your body is no different."Nobody ever changed the world on 40 hours a week" Elon Musk

Your ability to win is directly linked to and affected by the relationship between where you currently are and your peak performance level (your prolific zone).

That’s why the fuel you’re putting in your body is affecting how you’re competing.

This business is a game, a competition, and the athletes out there understand that.

You’re in a competition, and you’re competing with people who are obsessed with this kind of stuff, and will do whatever it takes to reach their prolific zone so they can beat you and win.

What you put in your body matters.

Mentally and physically 📖🥗🧠🥦

Look at that, figure it out (and readjust if needs be).

It’s about keeping your brain sharp for 8-10 hours a day so you can get a lot done, so you can ultimately accomplish what you want in order to serve the people you want to serve.

If you feel like garbage, have no energy, and struggle to get through the day, you can’t help the people you’re called to serve.

You need to keep your energy high so that you can compete, but more importantly so that you can win.

Once you figure that out, that’s how you‘ll get more done in a day than any of your competitors can in a week.

Elon Musk once famously said that you need to work at least 80 – 100+ hours a week if you want to change the world.

You can’t do that unless you’re in your prolific zone.

 

How The Business Elite Crush Their Competition, Make Billions, And Change The World

 

Insanely successful entrepreneurs know that their ability to change the world comes down to doing one thing:

Reaching their prolific zone 📈

Once they can start to shape their conditions and conditioning, they can not only reach that zone, but stay there indefinitely.

That’s their billion-dollar secret.

If you want to perform at your peak, you need to figure out the things you need to do in order to get into your own prolific zone.

This is where the magic happens, and this is where your success over the long-term will come from – Your ability to perform at your peak, no matter what gets thrown at you.

What you put into your body, both mentally and physically, affects how you compete.

And make no mistake, you’re competing whether you like it or not.

It’s just up to you whether or not you want to win.

The gold medal, winners’ podium, and all the good stuff that comes with winning can be found in your prolific zone.

Until then, here’s to performing at your peak 💪🏻
