About The 1% Rule: How to Fall in Love with the Process and Achieve Your Wildest Dreams Book

In a highlight reel, microwave world — you're led to believe success is right around the corner:

It's not working.

Not only is it not working with your ability to achieve your goals, we've never been more frustrated, stuck, stressed and unfulfilled.

Most personal development is all about the big and bold vision, yet these days we're not missing ambition or dreamers...

We're missing results and execution.

But what if there was a way to shut off the noise, fall in love with the process and take one step forward every single day as you paint your life's masterpiece?

Enter The 1% Rule — a daily system designed to help you close the gap without the crushing pressure that has kept you stuck in the past.

The 1% Rule was designed to answer three core questions:

Why do some people seem to achieve massive success with everything they do — while others can't seem to get out of their own way?

What separates those who get excited and inspired for a season, a quarter or a few months — and those who are consistently on fire? ​

What are the mindsets, principles, routines and behaviors of those who execute daily, and those who sit on the sidelines pondering?

...through answering these questions over the last decade in the trenches with thousands of people — they are now the framework of The 1% Rule and are yours today.

It's time to take your power back, grab your copy now.

If you're ready to ditch the highlight reel illusion...

If you're tired of sitting on the sidlines waiting...

If you're frustrated with the 24/7 noise...

You've come to the right place!

Emails and social media are dream killers – putting you in the driver’s seat for someone else’s vision

1. Create Urgency

1. Create Urgency

  • Your time is now. Stop acting like you have all the time in the world.
  • If you keep waiting to get started, you’ll wake up one day and wonder where your life went.
  • Manufacture urgency – urgency is not natural – it has to be created and recreated e.g. cut your target completion date in half and start now.
  • The amateur sits around waiting to be inspired – the pro creates inspiration.


2. Choose

2. Choose

  • Indecision is a big dream killer.
  • Too much choice means you don’t get to focus on what is really valuable, on what is really important.
  • Kill thinking you can have everything, kill thinking you don’t have to make a choice.
  • Instead of opting for choice, choose. Instead of allowing yourself options, decide what’s most meaningful to you – CHOOSE.


3. Captivate Yourself

3. Captivate Yourself

  • A lack of vision and clarity means you end up serving the dreams of others.
  • Create a vision so big and bold you feel electrified and uneasy. Captivate yourself, captivate your emotions. It should resonate deeply and move you – you should be able to touch it, smell it, live it – it should bring you to tears. You should feel an energetic shift as you think and talk about, like experiencing your dream holiday, like testing your dream car.


The 1% Rule - Marginal Improvement is the key

The 1% Rule - Marginal Improvement is the key

For those who not only find it hard to start and but also to continue on their goals , you only need to do 1% more than where you were yesterday ! Here's what you can do -

  1. Break down your assignment/ goals into smallest unit ( may be a 15 mins worth of task )
  2. Reward yourself for you small victories as a cue to come back next day ( e.g - completion of a chapter over a span of six 15 min sessions spread across days )
  3. Human tendency to get bored from a mundane repetitive task is so high that you need to mix and match your other light weight activities.
  4. Track , Measure and asses your progress.
