Epic Rule #7 – The Basics – To know and to not do is to not know.
Epic – [ep-ik] – heroic; majestic; impressively great; spectacular; very impressive; awesome.
Everybody claims to have the secrets to success. There are a million books written on success by people who really have never been successful at anything except selling a book on how to be successful. The fact of the matter is, any success I have had in life has come from practicing and mastering the basics and repeating them until I achieved my goal and knowing that success does not come from doing 5,000 things well, because it comes from doing 5 things 5,000 times.
James Allen wrote, “Men are anxious to improve their circumstances, but are unwilling to improve themselves; they therefore remain bound.”
Many people never succeed because they are not willing to improve and dedicate themselves to mastery of anything. The most successful people in the world are not the smartest, strongest or hardest working people in the world. They know what to do and then they do it. To know and to not do is to not know. You probably already know what to do. You must now make the decision to do it.
It does not matter where I build my business, whether it be in North America, Europe or Asia; the most successful people pretty much do the same thing. They focus on the basics, master them through repetition and continue with bull-headed determination until they achieve their goals. When they achieve their goal, they then set a higher and more difficult goal. They are thankful for their success, but never satisfied by it.
Master the basics and control your future.
