Alrighty. So in this video, I'm going to kind of explain how to make a lot of money, millions of dollars in your twenties or early thirties, and why most people are not. And if you use this strategy, you're going to give yourself a unfair advantage. And if you're, if you combine this sort of productive, this, this way of being productive with the right information and the right vehicle, the marketing skills, the sales skills, the analytic skills, the product building skills, all that, all that stuff. That's obviously important. But if you can combine that stuff with this strategy of just being a high performance person it's, you're gonna, it's only gonna be a matter of time and only take a few years, three, four years to make millions of dollars. Okay. And this is the strategy that I used. I was able to do this in my twenties.
And I think that everyone can do this. And I'll kind of I'll, I'll explain how this works. So I'm going to give a little graph here, and this is time on the X axis and this is a performance. Okay. And performance is a F is a percentage. So over here we have hundred percent performance. This is like your, your horsepower, a hundred percent performance. And, and this is, this is your output. Okay. Then over here, there's like a, we'll call this 0% performance. Okay. And so I CA I kind of realized this when I was in, in exams, I was studying a pretty rigorous program at this school called the Queens university. I was studying engineering and physics, and there were times there were like months where our exam season was very, very rigorous. And I had to go into the zone and try to learn this like really complicated stuff really quickly.
And I had to shut off everything and just dial into the books and dial into these previous previous exams. And when I was able to do was learn this stuff really fast, and I was able to do well on the exams, all that stuff. And I learned what, like my output was when I was a hundred percent. And I was I learned what I was capable of doing. And I feel like a lot of people in that situation, when they're doing exams, they actually learn what they're capable of doing. Okay. So I was able to find that benchmark, that hundred percent benchmark, the Holy crap, if I just did this all year, I could get, I could finish this whole degree in one year, maybe even less, because it took like a week to figure out a course. And I just, I did all, if I did 20 weeks, that's 20 courses right there.
Right. So I was like, wow, why isn't everyone just operating like this all the time? And so I was, I was able to take that, that performance benchmark. And then when I got into sales, I was able to use that benchmark and, and apply the same sort of methods to selling. I became the top salesperson. And when I got into entrepreneurship, I was able to, to do really well. And I've always kind of carried that that performance benchmark with my, with me. And here's what I see that most, most of my friends, they weren't, some people are smarter than me at school. Like these people that were just naturally just super like super brains, they they did not end up doing as well in the same period of time, because this is what they did, and this is what I didn't do.
So I kind of was just hovering around this a hundred percent Mark. And it took me a few years to, to to make the big money. But I was kind of hovering and every so often I would dip. Right. But I was never, I was never going to these big dips. And what I noticed was with a lot of my peers, they would they would kind of hover around the 65% performance Mark. And then every like weekend, they would, they would go through these huge dips. Okay. And they would follow this cycle. So even though they had a really, really high horsepower engines they would, they would go out, they wouldn't get enough sleep. They wouldn't get enough exercise. They wouldn't they would drink and they would, they would basically retard themselves or handicap themselves. And they were never at they were never at a hundred percent performance.
They were never able to use all of their brain power and and use all of their use all their energy. And they were always just, they were just kind of bouncing between the 65% and 5%. We'll call this 5% performance down here. And they were never, here is me just, I would just ignore, I didn't go out drinking. I didn't, I didn't have any friends. I didn't say I was not very social person when I was building my business and all that stuff. And these guys were going out and drinking every day and or every weekend, and then, but, and then they would just get like certain, certain jobs and they weren't able to really, really stretch their boundaries. And you're just kind of bouncing between the 65 and 5%. They were making 70, 80, a hundred grand 200,000 years. Sure. Right. But they weren't able to get to those millions and here's, here's what happens.
So when you're at the 65 per even if you're fit, you think you're doing okay. You're really only at 65%. Right. And your ability to take in information, synthesize it and make decisions, changes like crazy. If you're only operating at 65%. So even if you're at 65%, you make a decision, chances are the second and third order, consequences of that decision are going to be drastically different. Okay. So here's the second order consequence. And here's the third order consequences. And the fourth order consequences okay. Of that decision is going to be drastically different than if you made a hurt, really good decision when you were at a hundred percent. And this is what, this is what most people don't understand. Okay. So if you're operating at 65% and you make a decision, the path that you put yourself on in, as you travel through time, Kay is going to be way different than if you make a Chi quality decision on day one, it's going to put you on a completely different path.
And most people, they never achieve this level of clarity. So they're always just following this, this path, the wrong path, right. But if they have this level of clarity, they can jump back onto the right trajectory. But most people don't actually see the cl. They don't actually become clear and they they end up just staying on this, this, the wrong path, right. But if they just stopped doing stupid shit for a couple of weeks, all of a sudden they'd have these moments of clarity and they've jumped on the same path. So the key is, is understanding how the second, third, fourth hour, fourth order consequences where your decisions now, and your ability to function a hundred percent effect, the second order, third, a third order, fourth order consequences down the road. So if you want to be a really high performance person, you have to operate at this at this level that you want to be a hundred percent output, which means you have to cut out all the stupid shit.
You can't be doing drinking. You have to get good sleep. You have to get good exercise. You have to gas, all the social media. You have to basically do. You have to get rid of all the stuff that most people do and just focus on what is, if you were studying for the hardest exam in the world, and what would you do? And and, and just do that, just focus on the actual goal. And you do that for three, four, five years. You can imagine what ends up happening. You have this compounding effect. Imagine you're operating at a hundred percent performance over three, four years while everyone else is operating at 65% performance, okay. You can see what ends up happening. You start getting this compound effect. And all of a sudden people, you know, people, maybe you start making 80 grand out of the gate.
And then, you know, three years later, sorry, 80,000, then you know, three years later, you make a hundred thousand. Then you make 200,000, right? And that's what most people do. And then they got into 300,000 whatever. But if you're operating at a hundred percent performance, you start achieving this compounding effect. Yeah. You start making 80 grand, but then the next year you start making 500. The next year you start making a million, right? The next year you start making 10 million. So the difference is huge. If you just stop doing stupid shit, okay, you have to have good sleep. You have to have a good family life, a good family dynamic. You can't have this turbulence. You can't be on a freaking roller coaster. Every set, you can't be crazy. Emotional. You have to hover around this hundred percent Mark. And if you do stray, you can't stray too much.
Your, your peaks and troughs, can't be, you know, high amplitude. They have to be just little, little peach, little chops. Okay. And you want to stay as you want to hug this a hundred percent line as much as you can. And you just look at the most successful people around. They just hug that line. And the people that have huge swings, they they're super inconsistent. And obviously, if you want to achieve this compounding effect, you need to be really consistent over a long period of time. Okay. So my point is that the small things during the day, okay, the small decisions you make during the day, if you compound them over years, you a, at least to a drastic difference. And if you want to be a millionaire in your twenties or thirties or whatever, you basically have to cut all the bullshit out of your life and operate like you're studying for your hardest exams for five years at a time or five years.
And you'll make your, your make your money. So obviously you're going to need skills is entrepreneur skills, sales skills, product, building skills, analytics, skills, all of that stuff, and then combine it with this stuff. And you you'll have a ticket to to do, to do whatever you want. That's the strategy that I use at work. Okay. And that's a strategy that I see some of my peers who were making millions of their twenties using. And yeah, hopefully this helps. And if you need help with the sales and the marketing stuff, then definitely talk to us at sales process IO, we'll show you the actual tactics and strategies for getting a product or an offer out into the market. But also you're going to have to dial in this stuff. So hopefully this little thing was helpful. And if you're young, you're watching this good for you. It just start applying this. And by the time you're 25, 26, 27, you should have a few million bucks in your pocket. And if you learn this, when you're 30 or 40, well, give yourself a few years and you should have a few million bucks in your pocket. Alright. So I appreciate the time and we'll see you later.
