Last Update: Feb 6, 2019

I just attended in the 10x Growth Con in Miami and wanted to share 1 powerful that those millionaires and even Billionaires taught.

I've also published a 10-minute 10x Growth Conference Review in my YouTube channel where I share with you 3 Powerful Takeaways but in this quick post I'm gonna share you probably the most powerful one.

First, let me tell you a short story.

Story From a $700,000,000 Man

My favorite speaker was John Maxwell (estimated net worth +$700M) and he told us the following story.

Let's say that you have an axe and your goal is to cut the tree in the forest using that axe. But you can only hit a tree 5 times in a day.

In the first day, you go to a forest and you hit the tree 5 times and almost nothing happens.

Tree doesn't move at all.

You go home and get ready for the next day...

When the second day comes, you go to the same tree and hit 5 times again to the exact same position.

Still not much progress...

But you don't give up. You go home and come back in the 3rd day.

Again, you hit in the exactly same position of the tree.

You repeat this every day. Over and over again.

You hit with your axe every single day 5 hits in the exactly same position of the tree.

Guess what happens eventually?

The tree falls.

You've accomplished your goal.

Now you can use this parable for accomplishing any goal.

Let me illustrate further how to apply it to your online business.

Rule of 5

"Follow these 5 steps and you can accomplish any goal you want in your life." -John Maxwell

  1. Know what you want (cut the tree)
  2. You need the right tool (axe)
  3. Stay focused (same tree every day)
  4. Be consistent (cut the tree every single day)
  5. You have to stay with it until you've finished (until the tree falls down)

Let me quickly highlight the importance of each principles

1.If you don't know what you want. It's impossible to achieve anything. You don't know where you're going. Be as specific as possible with your end goal

2.If you start hitting the tree with the baseball bat, it's not gonna fall. Building your online business requires good tools. Don't try to do it with a mobile phone.

3.What if you'd hit a different tree every day. None of them would fall. Online we talk about the 'shiny object syndrome'. Always jumping from one opportunity to another doesn't work. You must say focused.

4.Working on your online business once a week is not going to take you far. You must take action preferably every single day.

Let me emphasize it.

Every. Single. Day.

Not just on Monday and Thursday.

Take action Every. Single. Day.

5.I can confidently say that 90-95% of the people who start an online business are never gonna make it.

The reason is that they couldn't make it but they just quit too early.

If you're reading this, please, don't be one of those who quit.

Stick to your goal and make sure you achieve it.

Now let's apply this to your online business.

  1. Know what you want (For example, Build a successful online business that solves X problem and you achieve x goal.)
  2. You need the right tools (Jaaxy keyword tool, Siterubix website builder, Laptop, Internet connection, etc.)
  3. Stay focused (Focus on mastering 1 thing, for example, Google SEO instead of trying to master 15 social media platforms at the same time.)
  4. Be consistent (Create new content every single day.)
  5. You have to stay with it until you've finished (Keep on producing content until you achieve your goal. And then of course, set a new goal and start taking action towards it.)


Alright! I could continue this further but I hope you've got the point :)

Need to go soon to the plane so I must writing here.

Now I throw the ball to you:

Did you like John Maxwell's story?

Are you COMMITTED to work every single day to reach your goals?

Could you add some idea to this story and thought process?

PS. When you reach 1 goal, that's not the end. Then you always set a higher goal and start reaching that. Winners never end.

John Maxwell is +71 years old and he was still full of power and energy.

He also talked about the importance of always reaching higher in life instead of getting too comfortable. But maybe that will be the topic for another post... :)

Bang on Roope! In times past when I used to cold call businesses in Alberta to make sales on commission, I had monthly goals that I set for myself. Many were the times that I had to work right up until closing time on the last business day of the month to obtain my goal, but glad to say, I always did, just because I would not accept less. My, but what a confidence builder that is !!

Thanks for sharing Roland. Cold calling is a job that really requires lots of persistence and character!

WOW! That's a great article. You are absolutely right about setting goals and writing articles every day. My main goal for 2019, was to write an article and post every day, I stumbled quite a bit in January, but February is looking better, posting 4-5 times a week, plan in increase that to daily.

Thanks for this inspiring article.
