The Doubling Effect

4 08 2009

Day 12

Yep, even though we started this Blog on the 9th of April 2009, and it is now the 3rd of August 2009, almost 4 months having passed, since its conception, we are only at Day 12. I, for one, find that very interesting. It wasn’t planned this way; it simply happens that we post when we feel an inspiration to do so. Sometimes the time between posts is short and sometimes longer but it seems to average about 10 – 12 days between posts which, if we continue in this manner, will bring us to Day 30, sometime in or, around April 2010; about 1 year from when we began. The reason I find this interesting is that, shortly after we began, we made a comment that, even if it took a year to get there, it’s alright because, it takes time to learn and do the things we are teaching. The important thing is that, WHEN you apply these principles, and stick to them, your life WILL change, and as we said:

IF YOU KEEP DOING WHAT YOU ALWAYS DO;

YOU WILL KEEP GETTING WHAT YOU ALWAYS GET.

If you want to improve your life, finances, relationships, etc., you need to make some changes, sometimes drastic changes, but even small changes can make a difference and, once you learn to adjust to the small changes, you can start increasing the intensity; we told you, at the start, that you would notice significant changes, in your life, within 1 year, providing you stick with the plan.

(For anyone who just joined in, we are not and will not ever be asking for money, we recommend that you read, at least chapter 2 Where to start?! or copy the following link into your browser – https://gusisaac.wordpress.com/2009/04/13/work-smarter-so-you-do-not-have-to-work-harder/)

I may have said this before, but it bears repeating. I liken the effort to a person in a boat, sitting on a river; the current is strong enough to move the boat downstream. If you do nothing, you will float, downstream, with the flow. In order to stay put, you MUST, either, anchor the boat in place or, use a motor set at a speed consistent with the flow but steering the boat in the opposite direction. But, if you desire to move upstream, you MUST use the motor, and set it at a speed considerably faster than the flow, to move against the flow, in order to reach your destination.

The point is, you need to step outside your comfort zone, if you expect to see change. Is it difficult to step outside your comfort zone? Not really, the hardest part is deciding to do it. Will stepping outside your comfort zone cause you difficulty or stress? More than likely, change always involves a learning curve which, usually, requires a time of adjustment and, possibly, some sacrifice; but, if planned out properly, is well worth the discomfort. Will we guarantee that this will work? We guarantee that if you keep doing what you have always done that, the only change you will encounter is, usually, something you don’t want.

Life is risky, you can live in your comfort zone until, your surroundings, your environment, take over, and you can’t get out, or you can take the risk and step out, a little, at first, until you learn to adjust, and discover the life you are searching for; it is there, it is doable, you just have to make the decision to start that engine and steer the boat in the right direction, as we have laid out for you, and slowly increase the acceleration until you find yourself on the other side.

REMEMBER! We told you that we are always here to help, just like Jesus said, we will never leave you nor forsake you. You are not in this alone, so don’t worry, if you need help, just A.S.K.

So, in order to get to the other side… bet you know what’s coming next… you should have aquired, at least, a new friend or two (if not yet, just keep trying) and, you should have $20.48 to add to your collection, bringing your total up to $40.95. Which means, next time, you will need $40.96, which will bring your total up to $81.91, feeling the pinch yet? Don’t sweat it, if you don’t have it yet, it will come, after all, this is only a lesson, no one will come down on you if you don’t have it. In fact, very soon now, we will be hitting figures that most of us can never reach by regular means …..

SO, WE ARE GOING TO LET YOU IN ON A LITTLE SECRET………..

We aren’t only talking about pennies. The pennies are also a reference to people; the people in you social network; the ones that you are making friends with, little by little, day by day. You say that you can’t possibly befriend that many people! That’s OK; you don’t have to; that is what the doubling effect is all about.

Let us show you how it works (in theory);

You use the methods we have been teaching here and, after a few trial and error sessions, you actually make a new friend. Now, let’s assume this process took you one month of steady, earnest effort, or six months. In any event, once you have made a friend, let’s assume it takes your new friend the same amount of time to learn, from you, how to do the same and acquires a new friend of their own.

You started off with 1, you now have 2. Next, the 2 of you go out and repeat the process and then you have 4 (people, that is). Get the picture? Okay, so remember what we said in the beginning, when you help someone, they invariably will want to do something to help you.

People are, by nature, social beings, everyone desires to belong, even those who have been hurt so bad that they choose to be loners. The idea of belonging was designed by God; in fact, He talks about it in His Word. He said, about the children of Israel, that they would be His people and He would be their God; in essence, making them a family with God as the Head. To put this into more perspective, Jesus made it possible for ALL who will accept Him as Savior & Lord to be part of that family.

We are not saying you have to go to church, or even have a relationship with God, in order to succeed socially or financially. What we are saying is, God designed the idea and perfected it, and it only makes sense to follow the master plan when trying to build anything.

In our next post, we will discuss, in more detail, how this social network works; but, in the meantime, go find a friend and, if you’ve already done that, start sharing with your friend how meeting them has changed your life and how you can help them to help someone else and, together, each of your lives will start to change for the better.

In the mean time, God Bless and we’ll catch ya on the flip side.
