Your Personal Tipping Point.

What will take you to the next level and tip you from mediocre to extraordinary? It doesn’t take much! At 211 degrees, water is hot. At 212 degrees, it boils, and you can boil an egg. Add just ONE DEGREE to 213 degrees, and you get steam that can drive a locomotive or a steamboat! (If you haven’t read the book, The Tipping Point, by Malcolm Gladwell, I suggest you do so right now.)

In our personal lives, we need to find that one degree of change, that extra ounce of effort, that tiny addition that creates our personal Tipping Point. I believe that is to be found in your drive, motivation, and attitude. For example, I had an idea in the middle of the night (Christmas Eve) to create Joint Venture Comics. I got out of bed and onto ELance.com and immediately registered and posted a project to look for a comic illustrator. Christmas Day I searched the Internet for a way to create my own comic strips and found a site to do so. I immediately went about creating not one, but eight comic strips, at no cost. I posted a link on my Blog as well. Click here to see them.

Now, I could have decided to “do something about this or investigate my options in the new year” or “when I had time”. Instead, I took immediate, massive, passionate action. For example, at the end of this article, are you the type that will leap into your car or get onto Amazon.com and buy the book I recommended in the first paragraph? Or will you add it to some list or decide to “think about it”? A salesman who calls ten people might make some money. Why not call a hundred people? Go the extra mile. Push harder. Make one more call. Highly motivated people will do whatever it takes, they will not quit, they don’t make excuses, and they work harder. They are available on high days and holidays. They work until they get what they want. They take full, personal responsibility.

I know people who claim they work hard, but they only do what they’re comfortable doing. Doing what you like is not work; doing what you don’t feel like doing is work. Turn off the TV set, get up earlier, get out of your comfort zone, don’t procrastinate. That’s how to find your Tipping Point. Whatever it takes, 24/7, 7 days a week, no compromise, will push you over the edge to massive success. Get your ego out of the way and push through the pain. Focus on your goals and make it happen. THAT is what will get you to your Treasure Island.

When YOU change, your circumstances will change, too. It has nothing to do with your environment, circumstances or other people, and EVERYTHING to do with your attitude.
