Getting raises using shortcuts

Every sentence and every action is either time-wasting or time-fulfilling. Don’t mislabel a thing as more important when it is not DIRECTLY related to accomplishing a desired goal. That is a foolish trap we lay for ourselves, so easy to avoid by considering any question from the OPPOSITE point of view that you would normally take. It is a simple, time-saving shortcut; you end up with more balanced opinions based on your best thinking abilities rather than your more emotional gut responses!

Saving time does NOT mean trying to never ever waste time, because that is a ridiculous extreme, and we know and accept that wasting time is a human need since every human does it. We’re addressing here the majority of your waking minutes, not all of your minutes, just a majority of them, when you are either focused or you are not focused. When you are focused, you’re able to show all of us how good you are. When you are not focused you are not producing at high levels. This enormous boost in your personal productivity is available for your use even in the next few minutes. At any videotapable moment of your life, you are either focused with intensity, focused not at all, or at some point in between. Become smarter in the next few minutes by both comprehending and embracing this life-changing, thoroughly electrifying shortcut to watching your accomplishments double repeatedly.

Ten people at a starting line of some contest. Two are brilliant, two are retarded, two are of average intelligence, two are above-average, and two are below average. Who will most likely win the race? Ten times in ten races the answer will never change: the hungriest contestant wins. This is true of every race, every contest that has ever existed or will ever exist between two or more human beings.

Whoever is hungriest is the one who remains at high focus for the majority of the duration of that contest. Without exception, the hungriest individual wins the race.

People who assign importance to petty things define themselves as petty, which deprives their most important their best attention. They are often people with high levels of education, because they really think they know better. Proof of course, is found in their absence from the pool of super-achievers. It’s been my experience that the people who are doing it better are the people who know it better. Everyone else has to shut up and pay attention to them when the desired goal is to be as good or better than the person who IS ALREADY DOING IT BETTER.

Too often pride goes before the fall and we just hesitate to open up. Be smart enough to remember that there is only one moment in every form of life of this planet, animal, vegetable, or mineral, when the death process begins. All true scientists keenly understand without emotional limitations that the death process begins in every form of life in precisely the same second that growth ceases.

That means skipping OR shortening the minor conversations by a sentence or two. It means that waiting at the traffic light is an opportunity to focus your mind on something you need to accomplish in the next 24 hours. This is basic training for advanced thinkers, which means ALL thinkers at levels low, medium and high get instant use from this perfect truth. Instead of speaking without thinking, throwing ten high-speed sentences, use a moment to consider your thoughts, and then use two or three well-chosen sentences. FREE BONUS: one of several extra benefits you get from this is that more of your spoken opinions will sound even more intelligent.

Instead of relying on opinion, we only need to keep aware for 24 hours whether an action or sentence that is about to happen should happen at all. By performing that action many times within this time frame, watching each time for mini-responses along the way, we can tighten up the next attempt. Seeking to try the act or task a hundred times or even a thousand times within the allotted time period means doing it more than every before. Arthur Ashe was only seen angry in public one time through his many years of fame. As the world's, perhaps history's greatest tennis player, Ashe was frankly offended when a reporter told him how "lucky" Ashe was to be the most talented player in tennis. Mr. Ashe drew himself up and sternly replied to the effect that his position in tennis had nothing to do with luck; that, as a child, he'd hit a tennis ball against the garage wall one thousand times every day of his life before breakfast, one thousand times every day after dinner, and on those days he wasn't in school, a thousand times after lunch as well. Rain, sleet, snow, heat, cold: almost nothing stopped him from following his father's suggestion that this would lead to world-class tennis playing.

And so it is with you. You can talk about luck, or you can make your own luck, Laboring Under Correct Knowledge.

This particular time frame of a single day is wonderful opportunity for us to see what you're personally made up of, whether you're all hot air or whether you have real substance to your character.

Doing it for 24 hours has such a huge impact on people who are doing it for real, not just lip service, that a decision is often made to extend the “AWARENESS OF MY TIME” for another 24 hours. Approximately 7 percent of the population, most often those with less formal education demonstrate native intellect of a higher nature; enough to see that there is a direct connection between cause and effect, and maintain an awareness of how they are using their time…. most all of the time. they are frequently counted among the super-achievers of at least these past two generations. Should your goal merely to be one-tenth as good or as smart as they, your duplication of their actions and words absolutely guarantee you success. That’s why it qualifies so well as a success shortcut of masters and millionaires, champions and billionaires. Your turn.

Here are a few of the methods I've used to secure fast raises:

  •   Ask.     Then ask again.
    Thing is, you want to be smart in how you ask. There are definitely times that you are producing better than others. These are good times to raise the issue with whoever makes the actual decision. Ask, dummy. Those who ask for more tend to receive more.

    Please note: the foregoing does NOT claim that whoever whines for more, demands more, or uses obnoxious methods of insistence... will end up with more. No, it's the people who know how to ask nicely, and find ways to ask repeatedly without sounding like a broken record.


  •   You can combine PowerGems here. Perfect example: "Ask more people more times," AND
    "Ask better questions in order to get better answers."
    In this case, I have never directly asked, "May I have a raise?" I prefer to ask, "Boss, please identify exactly what I have to do to get a raise that YOU feel is fair."
    If your employer or supervisor is unwilling to be actively enthused about helping you to map your way to a raise, then you work for someone of severely limited foresight. This is not a job you're going to make much money at, and may want to give serious thought to replacing it with a better one.

    Supervisors and employers who are willing to identify with you what you need to do in order to justify a worthwhile raise are people who look towards growth and improvement, knowing that the happier the employee, the more productive the employee is for the organization's benefit. This is what we mean by a "win-win" situation.


  •   Come up with your own plan. Should you approach the person who decides the actual amount of your pay with a brief, written plan of action for you to earn your way into a specified raise, you now have more than double the likelihood of earning that raise. Goes without saying, of course, that you need to follow through on YOUR part of the written plan, in order to secure your employer or supervisor's following through on the raise.

    You can be as specific as you like: "Hey boss, I'd really like to earn _____ more per week. I've written down here a list of what you expect from me in return for my income of ________________. Provided I go above and beyond that by doing ___________ and ___________, by working on my own time or staying early and late, would you agree that _______ is a fair raise for me to pursue?"

Letting your supervisor or employer know that you have a specific set of goals is good for the organization, and can be good for everyone in the organization -- as long as each party to such an idea accepts the benefit of the idea.

The more you focus on getting that raise, the more likely -- by far -- you'll come up with better ideas for achieving it.

Of course the ultimate and best idea for getting a raise is simply finding a way to do whatever it is you love to the most -- doing it a minimum of four hours per week -- and then finding someone to pay you for it. This is how most self-made millionaires become wealthy: earnestly pursuing excellence in whatever it is they love to do the most.

The most controllable part of the equation between desire and reality is the quality and number of efforts; efforts that multiply in the hour that you do.
Let that be THIS hour of your life.
In other words, speaking less and doing more.

What you know means so very little;

what you DO with what you know is the difference between mediocrity and excellence.

Let's face a bit reality: either you yourself are excellent, or you're not, which would place you with the mediocre. This page contains a powerful tool for you to get benefit from in the next few hours of your life; significant, measurable benefit.
Benefit: use it, or lose it.


Get busy writing today, I promise you a wealth of fast benefit and profit.
Your opinion is of no value until based on experience.
Writing more today brings more today AND tomorrow;     ninety-seven days out of every one hundred.
