80/20 Rule

You probably know about about 80/20 rule, right?  20% of people make 80% of the income, even though 100% of them have the same information at hand.  Then there’s the 5/15 rule.  Yep, you can actually take that top 20% and break it down into 5/15.

In other words, you can see that the top 25% of the 20% are the ones that get the BEST results, make the MOST money, are the HAPPIEST in life.

That’s the “prize position“.

What I find most fascinating is that those in the “prize position” do two things better than anyone else.

1. Speed of implementation

2. Major action takers

Functional Medicine Success

When you really think about it, there’s nothing that separates your best patients from the rest of your patients other than major action taking and implementing of what you teach them.  It’s the same in practice, too. The top functional medicine doctors who run the most successful practices take action on a regular basis.

The most successful take imperfect action – even in the face of fear, and the minute they get information that they know will benefit their practice, they immediately apply it.  Speed of implementation and the ability to take massive action are probably the biggest determining factors of success.

So how do you do it?

(This is probably the question I get asked most often…)

There’s no magic answer, but there are five things you can do shift yourself into speed and action mode.

1. Determine what outcome you want.

2. Identify what you need to do to achieve that outcome.

3. Make and work off lists EVERYDAY that bring you closer
to your desired outcome.

4. Eliminate all negative self talk.
(while you’re at it, stop associating with negative people in
your life)

5. Be accountable to others. Tell others your goals and the
timeline you’re going to achieve them in, and then make it
happen.

Look, if you really want to be successful, you can’t wait around for it to happen, you have to take action today.  You will make mistakes, but if you wait around for life to be perfect, you will be waiting forever.  On that note, I am holding a private mastermind meeting at my clinic to help 8 doctors.  If you are ready to take action and succeed in building the practice of your dreams – join me on September 22nd <<==  I currently have 4 more seats open.

To your success,

Dr. O
