What if you can speed up the process and multiply your results?
Well, I just realized this recently. With my test preparation videos, I wasn’t as consistent as I should’ve been last year. I mean, even going back to the beginning stages of me uploading. I launched two videos back in 2015 and stopping making videos all the way until last year. Not good enough.
So, I asked myself how I can bring in more traffic? Staying consistent! DUH!
So over the last few days I decided that I would make one grammar preparation video, an incomplete sentence video, and one other specifically catering to TOEIC. I also decided to throw at least one IELTS video in every week and possibly a TOEFL video. That’s literally 5-6 videos a week. In doing that, and just doing that the last few days, I’ve saw one of the biggest influxes in views, revenue, sharing and all other analytics in a three-day period EVER!
How did this happen? Consistency = multiplying results.
“Let’s say you’re weight training and your program calls for you to do twelve repetitions of a certain weight. Now, if you do the twelve, you’re fulfilling the expectation of your program. Great job. Stay consistent, and ultimately, you will see this discipline compound into powerful results for you. Yet, if you get to twelve, even if you’ve hit your max, and you push out another three to five reps, your impact on that set will be multiplied several times. You won’t just add a few reps to the aggregate of your workout. No. Those reps done after you hit your max will multiply your results. You’ve just pushed through the wall of your max. The previous reps just got you there. The real growth happens with what you do after you’re at the wall.”
Excerpt From: Darren Hardy. “The Compound Effect.” iBooks.
I mentioned in a recent podcast about how Ali never started counting his ab reps until the pain came in….because that’s when the growth took place.
Runners can attest to this, too. Anytime I run a 10km race, the first km is a drag trying to control my breathing. Shortly following that, I hit the wall probably halfway through. It never has to do with my breathing but always the lower-body. This is the “growth” stage of the race. Another instance was when I was doing a recent strength training class in the evening. After a few side squats with the kettlebell, I felt not pain, but soreness in my hamstrings and glutes. I continued fighting through the discomfort and after the workout and in the ensuing couple of days, I could barely even walk. However, when my muscle soreness goes away, I’ll be a hell of a lot stronger than before.
“Viewing yourself as your toughest competitor is one of the best ways to multiply your results. Go above and beyond when you hit the wall. Another way to multiply your results is pushing past what other people expect of you—doing more than “enough.” – Darren Hardy
