Either you're a duster or a fighter jet, and if you're a duster right now, you'd better break the hump to turn into a fighter jet from today.
Now what do I mean by this?
I mean that busy and performing people are like fighter jets. A fighter jet is an extremely powerful and sophisticated machine built to meet specifications. A hunting team has a checklist with over a hundred tasks to complete before each flight, all to make sure the machine is operating at maximum efficiency.
Now, normal people-normal people who fight-a
Same with duster people. I am constantly on the edge of the crisis because "enough" quickly becomes "barely enough" and finally "NOT enough".
That's why we should all aspire to be hunting in life. When you are a fighter jet, collect the biggest fruits of life.
Being a fighter jet means:
- Do more in less time (both at home and at work)
- To have more impact and meaning through work
- Feel less stress and a greater sense of peace
- Having huge amounts of energy for the whole day
- Improve health and wealth
Here's how you do it …
- You need to put more structure in your days
- You must have clarity of passion and purpose
- You need to build your skills and leadership skills
- You must have the capacity for mental recovery and passionate persistence
- You must dedicate yourself to constant and endless improvement (otherwise known as Kaizen)
Let's take this analogy a little bit further. A fighter jet requires different treatments and treatments than a duster. A fighter jet has a personal, professional and relational discipline.
A fighter jet, like you, requires expensive jet fuel and extensive maintenance. This means that you have to have the personal discipline to stick to the highest quality nutrition (and only small amounts of delicacies), as well as appropriate
A fighter jet is also extremely precise and works with a driving precision. This represents your professional discipline on time (to show up on time and never be late), bringing your best self and high levels of energy to work, exceeding expectations and always asking and looking for more opportunities to contribute to the cause.
But self-care from fighter jets does not end there. You also need an advanced and well-trained pilot, the type that's a lot smarter than what you get behind a duster duster's stick. The pilot of your fighter jet is your mind, and needs to have the right mindset to add value, be alert, share abundance, donation and generosity.
Never have a scarcity mentality. Reject all fear, greed and doubt.
Finally, in the discipline of relationships, a fighter jet is loyal to the family, friends and its highest source of power. Try to improve these relationships every day, just as you seek constant and endless improvement in your personal habits.
How you do anything is how you do everything. Your relationship with your health often reflects your professional success. If you have strong personal habits and take care of yourself, you are more likely to have strong professional habits and bring a fighter-minded mentality and high performance to your work. But if you are disorganized in an area of life, it often manifests itself in every area of life.
Committing ourselves to improving every day, the "Kaizen principle", is the key to building "wealth in health" and wealth in one's bank account. These go hand in hand. Just as you would not deliver a fighter jet to a novice pilot with only 40 hours of experience, no one would give you much responsibility in your career if you have not yet demonstrated high performance habits.
If you want to dominate your way and build the wealth of your family so you can have financial and temporal freedom, then you have the obligation and responsibility towards the family, yourself and your business or career to be at your best in every area of life.
Never doubt yourself. Never think that you can not do it. They are living proof that anyone can succeed. I was just an immigrant child who escaped communism and came to the United States and reached the American dream. And if I can do it, anyone can.
Now to show you how a fighter jet is taking place in the business world, I have an exclusive excerpt for you from my book "Man Up: How to Cut Bullshit and Kick Ass in Business (and in Life)". Take this to heart:
According to Forbes magazine, 13 percent of Americans are entrepreneurs – but this alone does not make them combat pilots in my book. We also know that 80 per cent of companies fail or, at best, simply shake, sporadically breaking, but above all causing stress and anxiety in the lives of poor bastards who have initiated them. So it is safe to say that many entrepreneurs start as fighter jets but become scavengers when they underestimate the amount of time, money and effort needed to take off their activities. I was one of them
See, the duster entrepreneurs think that going into business will be easy. They think, "If I build it, they will come."
The reality is that you built it and nobody came. Nobody cares about your best rat trap. Nobody cares about your best service and how you're revolutionizing an industry. No one is out there waiting for you to create the best business model. Jet fighter entrepreneurs know these facts. And once I understood this and accepted these facts, then everything changed for me!
Jet fighter entrepreneurs build a better mousetrap and then commit to doing the work necessary to sell off-market, sell and out of service the competition. They find creative ways to use influencers to get the word out about their products and services. They always find better and faster ways to take advantage of social media sites, search engines, apps and video sites to spread their messages. Jet fighter entrepreneurs are committed to becoming effective leaders. They are decisive, they are great communicators and have a clear vision. They focus on personal growth and development as much as they focus on business growth. They work to become emotionally resilient. While snow plows are emotionally responsive, fighter jets have mastered the art of managing their emotions. Rather than reacting emotionally to a situation or a problem, which causes people to lose respect for them, fighter jets respond calmly, focus and strategy to situations that further strengthen their leadership and authority. Jet fighter entrepreneurs also understand the value of creating a strong team of effective, driven, loyal and successful employees.
