The 20 Percent High Payoff Activities

The 20 Percent High Payoff Activities

Today I’m writing about the concept of the 20-percenters and how your connection with this group could take you to the top in almost any profession.

The 20-percenters philosophy is based on the well-known Pareto principle in which Vilfredo Pareto observed that 20 percent of Italy’s population controlled 80% of the wealth of the nation.  From there, he came up with the concept of unequal distribution, in which he saw that in many of our lives, there was an unequal relationship between input and output.

This stated that there are truly only a few things that cause our success, and if we can do these few things well, it will separate us from the masses. It’s also related to the fact that there was a small group of people in the world who had recognized this fact, and they were the individuals who were the most successful in our society.

So, you may ask yourself, how can I become a 20-percenter?

I came across this Facebook post by an acquaintance of mine that I found hugely profound. I found that it tested my commitment to being among the 20-percenters of our society. You see, you’ll begin to read these affirmations, and then you’ll realize how long this post is. 80% of you will not make it through this entire page. Then you’ll know if you’re ready to be among the 20-percenters, just for today. If not, then come back tomorrow and try again…

Today I wanted to share with you the programing my mind goes through right after I have worked out at the gym for an hour. Usually I invest my time by going into the sauna (or) the steam room at the gym where I meditate and think about my thoughts. This is a great time to prepare the mind for your day. After I have treated my self as a “KING” (QUEEN for the ladies) this means Working Out, Sauna, Steam and 1st meal of the day.  then I am ready to do my Power Hour.  It’s not really an hour more like 20 min, but is is a specific time on my agenda every morning in my daily planner.

I read my Purpose Statement,  review my 5 year Bottom Lines, my 30 day Objectives and get my mind in touch with my Higher Power aka (GOD) Yes I Pray. This is also the time I read my Daily Affirmations and program my subconscious and conscious mind. I read them out loud in the morning and I do this again before I retire in the evening.
