|The Power of REPETITION!

Never thought I'd admit this.
But I think I'm **insane**.
At least, according to the definition bandied about:
===> "Insanity is doing the same thing
over and over again and expecting
different results" <===
I don't know about that.
In fact, I have the exact OPPOSITE definition:
===> "Insanity is NOT doing the same
thing over and over again and
expecting different results." <===
Let me explain my "madness" here:
I don't know about you, but I've found stubborn repetition,
ESPECIALLY when you don't see immediate results, essential to
succeeding in almost everything.
For example, things like...
1. Repetition of learning
I'm a BIG believer in consuming the best books, CD's and courses 10
times, minimum. It's one of the big "secrets" to learning
something not only very quickly, but at a much deeper level than
your lazy competition ever will.
2. Repetition of following up
Some people think it's nuts to write a DAILY email.
Yet, ever since doing so, my sales have exploded, most of the
do-nothings and nitwits have unsubscribed (or I unsubscribed them),
and I get FAR more new client inquiries, and other cool
opportunities I never would have gotten otherwise.
Doesn't take a sane man to know 1 email didn't get those results.
3. Repetition of good habits
Imagine eating ONE good meal or exercising just ONE time and
expecting to feel and look great.
Maybe I'm crazy... but to me THAT would truly be insane.
4. Repetition of doing what works
Lots of entrepreneurs get bored of their own businesses, or of
selling the same product that consistently outsells other products,
and then wonder, "What happened to sales?"
Maybe it's just me, but that doesn't sound "right in the head."
5. Repetition of words
When you repeat certain words in your ads, speeches, videos, etc,
in a very specific way, you'll find people have a very, very hard
And no... there's nothing "voodoo" going on.
But if you read great speeches, ads and other persuasive messages,
there's a certain repetition of thought at work.
6. Repetition of attitude
Even a lunatic would agree having a positive mindset helps you
better cope with life's curve balls whizzing at your head.
Imagine the insanity of not keeping a good attitude just because it
didn't "work" the first time?
7. Repetition of action
Let's face it...
A lot of success is just showing up -- ready to work.
Of course, if you only show up to work on your business one day per
year, because, you know, that last time didn't produce any sales,
I think we'd have to call the men in white coats on ya.
Anyway, as you can see, there's power in repetition.
Of doing the same things over and over -- immediate results or not.
Which is why, in the "asylum" I call my mind, it's the popular
definition of insanity that's really insane.
. . .
That's it for today, my friends.
