The One Percent Difference – Changing Your Life (and business) One Thought at a Time!


What is the One Percent Difference?

Einstein once said “No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.”

What that suggests is that we must take input from others and look at the problem with a fresh set of eyes, with Zen eyes. Stated differently, we must look at the problem with a beginners mind. In a beginners mind there are no preconceived notions about how a problem can be solved; there are just possibilities, without judgment, that can be used to solve a specific problem. 

That begs the question of how do you change your level of consciousness to experience the beginner’s mind?

I believe you can do that through The One Percent Difference.

If we define The One Percent Difference as one new thought that enters your consciousness that change how you think, and hence how you act, you have experienced the One Percent Difference and created the beginner’s mind. This One Percent can make the difference between success and failure.  Over time that small change in thinking can change your life in a very big way.

Massive changes are not needed. Just simply changes. We are looking to achieve a simple One Percent difference in how we view a specific problem so that we can look at it the problem as Einstein suggested, with a new level of consciousness.

 How do we achieve this One Percent Change in thinking? It is not as hard as you think. Two areas that work for most people are getting feedback from our trusted advisors and continuous education. I find my advisors to be essential in thinking differently about my problems and understanding that none of us are without problems.  

From our peers we can experience great change safely. This is because multiple minds and multiple experiences allow for a new way of looking at things. This results in better decisions and safer decisions. The other area is via ongoing education. The best tool I found is www.ilearningglobal.tv. I was so impressed with it I signed up to distribute it. My clients love it. To learn more go to www.ilearningglobal.biz./ronf.

Frankly it does not matter what tools you use, you must act on what you learn. Being part of a great group do no good if you do not act. Having access to the greatest minds is useless unless you apply what you learn.

Try to look at each situation with a beginners mind and make no assumption or judgments about a give situation. Learn from others who have been there either via your mastermind group or a more structure learning environment.  Most importantly take action! Taking action on your new ideas will change your life (and your business).
