[RtR] The biggest difference between the top 5% and the bottom 95% by Mind Map: [RtR] The biggest difference between the top 5% and the bottom 95%

1. Back when I was learning to sail

1.1. My sailing instructor asked me to steer the boat toward a giant building on an island in the distance... a couple of miles away

1.2. So I embarked on that mission

1.3. I got the rudder in my hand

1.4. And started to Captain and steer the boat

1.5. After 20 mins

1.5.1. My sailing instructor Started to question me What happened? 20 mins No progress

1.6. I thought I was making progress but I was just lost

1.6.1. I was just drifting in the water

1.7. Here is what had happened

1.7.1. Instead of keeping my eyes on the Big building on the island in the distance

1.7.2. My eyes had wandered to the waters just 10 feet ahead of me

1.7.3. My grip on the rudder was week

1.7.4. And I was just drifting

1.8. Instead of focusing on the long term vision - 2 miles away

1.8.1. My vision was focussed on the next 10 feet

1.9. So even though I thought I was steering in the general direction of the island

1.9.1. I was actually drifting

1.9.2. The boat was just going nowhere

1.10. As soon as I realized my mistake and focused my eyes on the building that I had to steer towards

1.10.1. The boat magically started to steer itself in that direction

1.10.2. And in 10 mins I made it to the building on the island!

1.11. Notice that it did not take any extra effort on my part to steer the boat to the destination

1.11.1. But it did require that I constantly have my eyes on the target

1.11.2. I had to be focussed on my vision Thats's all

2. This is the difference between the bottom 95% and the top 5%

2.1. As Dennis Waitley talks about in his book

2.1.1. The pscychology of Winning

2.2. The bottom 95% have a very vague idea of where they are going in life

2.2.1. They hope to find that island of happiness, success and riches

2.2.2. But they have no clarity of vision, purpose, and destination Without a precise aim They become aimless

2.2.3. Psychology of Winning - Dennis Waitley Bottom 95% have no clear vision, aim and purpose

2.2.4. Outwitting the DEvil Within - The Biggest Challenge The biggest reason why the devil inside will get you Drifiting No definite Purpose Defined by External Circumstances Unable to think for oneself Not controlling their own thinking Nature ABHORS Vaccum

2.2.5. So in my sailing endeavor, I was initially operating like the Bottom 95%

2.3. Top 5%

2.3.1. Have a vision and focus What do I stand for? What do I want

2.3.2. Go farther in a few years than what drifters do in a lifetime

2.3.3. 7 Habits of Highly Effective People Habit #2: Begin with the End in Mind - 7 Habits of Highly effective people If you don't have a clear end in mind You need a clear end in mind in order to be able to achieve anything meaningful in life

2.3.4. Think and Grow Rich It's not enough to just tell yourself the destination or desire once in a while You've got to charge your mind with that goal or desire. And that will only happen with repetition Day and night You've got to

2.3.5. As a man thinketh As a man thinketh UNTIL thought is linked with purpose there is no intelligent accomplishment. Those who have no central purpose fall prey to everything petty To being to think with purpose is to enter the ranks of the strong ones Who make all conditions serve them & who only recognize failure as one of the pathways to attainment;

2.3.6. Outwitting the devil within Definiteness of purpose is the 1st Requisite for any and all successful undertakings People who gain and maintain power must become definite in their aims and thoughts
