(Principles are basic truths that, when applied, cause success to come to you easier and quicker.)


Noticing what people do is a useful skill. Noticing what highly successful people do is even better.

When you become aware of something highly successful people do, which you have not been doing, believe will be useful for you also, and begin to do it, better outcomes typically result for you.

Highly successful people are careful about assuming that something is causative. They know that A may or may not lead to B. They don’t rely on assuming. They check the facts. They study. Then they act. Or not.

Ordinary people hear a sound bite or see a ‘fact’ and often leap to a conclusion. Their reasons are many. Their results predictable.

Ordinary people hope. Highly successful people know.

Ordinary people read the summary. Highly successful people read the book.

Ordinary people want a quick answer. The highly successful want the correct answer.


Coaching Point: Making sure of the causative effect of information is a skill of highly successful people. Is it one of yours?
