What is a Shorcut? Glad you ask. It's not misspelled.
SHORCUTS: words and methods sure to bring faster results
Another way to look at Shorcuts, Shortcuts, and PowerGems:
Words or actions that shorten the time it takes to get there
Any words/actions that consistently produce faster, better results
Most of us are likely to agree that people with 10 or 20 years of excellence know about obstacles to avoid. It's been the observation of more than one perceptive human that so many of the people who claim twenty years' experience usually have more like four years of experience repeated five times over. We refer here to those individuals who demonstrate word-class results repeatedly. These are the truest experts. When the most knowledgeable experts in any given field, such as ten Olympic champions, ten multimillionaires, ten great teachers, unanimously agree that something specific should be avoided, there's little chance they're wrong, provided they're not economists.
Similarly, when ten Olympic Champions, ten multi-millionaires, AND ten great teachers all issue similar statements of a deep and abiding belief
that a big part of their success is because they wrote their dream on paper with a date, and listed
the obstacles and the people who can help get rid of the obstacles, free of any knowledge that the other twenty-nine have said the same thing, it sounds like a pattern, what we can easily think of as A Guaranteed Shortcut. Never been known to fail.
When the number of masters and millionaires who offer this information climbs into the scores, the hundreds, and the thousands, one by one, individually gleaned from interviews and/or breaking bread with these extraordinary role models of success -- we have Power Shortcuts -- sometimes referred to as PowerGems.
No matter who, what, or where you are in life, PowerGems are
universally utile: they work. Start now. Suspend your opinion and put this to use today:
This is one of the ten most powerful shortcuts a human being can ever hope to learn. 100% of us understand this, 93% are too profoundly stupid to tap into it, on purpose, in the next few minutes. Before 100 attempts are complete, you double the number of yesses you receive.
PowerGems tend to work in just minutes!! Time for a better mind-set, hm? When I'm interested in a lady, I don't ask her if she wants to dine with or date me, or if she's busy this weekend.   That's like deciding to walk a race because you figure you won't win it.
These are yes/no questions, which are to be avoided, because, given a chance of yes or no, most of us have been raised to say no.Don't ask if...
It doesn't get more complicated than that because it is a basic axiom of life. Consistent is the word. Anything that is consistent in life constitutes your road map, your shortcut, your assured method of getting there without any number of the extraneous steps being included in your journey unnecessarily. Giving a yes or no choice is half-surrender. Ask yes or yes questions!.
ask when, ask which, ask what color, what flavor... ...
consistently offering alternative choices, rather than just 'yes' or 'no.' Keep in mind that yes or no means, at best, a fifty percent chance of getting what you want. Instantly increase your probabilities by offering two or more affirmative choices, choices that you decide upon, rather than allowing to be decided for you.
I smile and tell her directly that I would like to take her out for Mexican food on Friday night, unless she would consider jumping up and down with joy at the prospect of seeing the exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum on Saturday.
"Oh, you're busy both days? Okay, Sunday afternoon they have a special Laserium show at the Hayden Planetarium. Does that sound exciting OR would a quiet dinner at Luigi's Monday night please you more?"
Offer choices! You'll see fast, pleasing results. Try it now.
Quicker, better results.
If you bulb burns brightly enough to empower you to ask more questions, combine it with this undeniably powerful shorcut by
asking more and better questions
in the next few minutes.
Who can help you get there? Call them up, even now in this minute to ask them if they'd like to help you by doing this, or would they feel more comfortable by doing that?
It's powerful, it's immediate, and it will positively impact the rest of your life. Ask. Ask. Ask.
Please don't nod your head, tucking this away for future use.
If you really knew better, you'd be doing better, wouldn't you? Use it immediately,
watch what happens. ENORMOUS results; guaranteed. The same minute that you put your list of possible 'helpers' on paper, you begin thinking of
additional people to add to the list. By the time you get a hundred people on your list,
you will find that at least a few of them are saying 'YES' to you, others are rapidly moving closer to saying yes. If this shorcut alone is not enough to stimulate you to
acting on it, put your seat belt on, you're about to get smarter. What is particularly exciting about this is that, hidden in the act of asking, right here you have another certitudinously life-changing benefit: every time you get a 'NO' from a particular person, you are now mathematically one time closer to having that person say yes.
The inventor who lost more money for more of his financial backers than any other inventor before or since? Did you know that Thomas Edison lost hundreds of millions of dollars for his investors? His Silesian coal-mining scheme alone sucked up many, many millions that were never gained.
That was the same guy who told a NY Times reporter at a news conference that he had not failed ten thousand times, rather, had learned ten thousand ways NOT to invent the electric light bulb, that it had taken him ten thousand steps in order to announce at that news conference that he, Thomas Edison, had indeed invented a successful electric light bulb.
It is possible that you know more than Thomas Edison, or think you do. In point of fact, Edison also made more money for his backers than a thousand other inventors combined We have no doubt that you may well be a legend in your own mind. Simply examine the paper-thin difference between knowing it, and proving it. That single-ply tissue-thickness is a matter of a few minutes per day. As with most subjects, talk is merely talk, and has its limits. What you do speaks so loudly we really can't hear a word you're saying.
The sole purpose of this document is to pound into your head that you have what amounts to a magic genie between your ears, that you can make huge leaps in a single day or two. Since learning this I've tripled my results in a dozen of my favorite areas, with as little as fifteen minutes per day. Before you know it, the minutes of superfocus add up to hundreds, then thousands of those little 15-minute chunks. Wow. How would you like to read a book or two per day, every day? I've been doing it since my tenth birthday, which was a bit more than ten thousand days ago. For me, it's worth two hours and more per day. It has certainly helped in the pursuit of radio shows, guitar, piano, breaking a hundred sales records for a half-dozen large NY companies... ...and literally millions of unique, hand-created, completely free web pages... just for you.
This is not rocket science, and, at the base of it all, it's not at all vital for us to understand all the why's and wherefores of a great shortcut... only that it gives a reasonably safe boost up the ladder. Like most people, I haven't gotten much smarter in this life; It was just a matter of focus, learning more high-powered shortcuts from my role models, reading about and interacting with them; then setting out to duplicate their precise words and efforts, just as Grandma does with a recipe. Our greatest and most useful role models are those who do things at world-class levels repeatedly. The most exciting, encouraging fact to emerge from so many years, so many thousands of days of studying and interacting with winners is that every single last one of them, every girl Jill and every man Jack, every single world-class leader has overcome obstacles much bigger than yours. The proof is that they moved past their obstacles while you're still making pipsqueak efforts with your enormous reservoir of resources.
The more times you ask the same person for something, the closer they get to saying what you want to hear more than anything else: "Yes."
Get this shortcut - or shorcut - through your head, thoroughly, because it's one of the greatest "shorcuts" of all time, and guaranteed to work for you as quickly as this very day. By asking a dozen people, and then twenty people, and a hundred if you need to, the absolute likelihood of you getting whatever it is that you want multiplies with the sweet taste of something called synergy, where one plus one equals more than two.
Synergy is when two equal items added together create something that's more than double, although that does not make sense to a mathematician.
If you have ever tried to walk more steps along a railroad track than your brother or cousin on the other track, then you know that walking up to twenty and thirty steps along that narrow rail takes many, many tries.
As Zig Ziglar reminded us, what do you think happens when two such people reach out and join hands? Aha!! The two of you can walk farther and faster without tripping or slipping off the rail, because of the magic of synergy, where one plus one equals more than two.
Can you handle another major secret, a superlative shortcut that will actually give you power over other people, and more so when you use it for mutual benefit? Get ready, this one's big.
It's that simple.
Even a primary, baseline experiment, which you can play around with immediately, can give you great self-instructions with respect to the most effective success shortcuts, especially proven shortcuts that IMMEDIATELY demonstrate how effective they are towards YOU getting more people to say "Yes!" to you more times per dozens "asks" then you currently get. As is usually the case, there is no requirement that you sheepishly accept Psychology of Shortcuts assertions regarding the power of this shortcuts.
Simply get it in gear yourself! Why relegate yourself to having to rely upon other sources, even those as great as the Psychology of Shortcuts, when you can teach yourself by doing it yourself?
Do not delay in employing this magnificently effective shortcut. Try it out with people right now!
Whoever you have access to will do, in a pinch, and also in most describable circumstances. Persistence really does overcome resistance!
Ask a human being for something specific -- seven or more times -- and their ability to say 'No' diminishes, even as their likelihood of saying 'Yes' increases -- with mathematical similarity. You might look up the word 'apposite' in the dictionary.
It fits here.
Obviously, asking fifty people significantly increases the likelihood of you obtaining you what you want. The fastest known way to guarantee or at least reasonably assure you getting what you want is to ask each person repeatedly until they say yes.
Find new ways to ask. You knew this as a three-year old asking, then demanding, then crying for, and finally wheedling your way into that ice cream from the truck.
True, or not? Well, guess what?
It works great for adults, too, even better, in fact, since adults do have communication and 'asking skills' at least a couple of levels higher than those of a child. Go ahead. Find newer and more creative ways to ask each person on your asking list more and more and more...
until you hear that sweet word: 'YES!'
Decide what you most want. Resolve to ask at least three different people per day for help
in getting it, three per day, thirty-one days in a row. There is no doubt, no hesitation in assuring you that you'll be thrilled, perhaps even astonished. Remember, PowerGem means getter there faster, consistently faster.
By consistently focusing on the fact that it's one of the greatest, fastest shortcuts in existence, you will just as consistently produce faster, better results. In point of fact, the Psychology of Longevity is far less about the so-called "Art of Success" as it is the identified and defined "Science of Success."
As you shall or can notice with all shorcuts and PowerGems, your opinion prior to extensive experience is of remarkably of little or no interest at all, because it's of no benefit to any of us, least of all the most important person on the planet, whose face you can find right now in the nearest mirror, until it's been used a hundred times or more. That sentence is DESIGNED to be unwieldy, to highlight how ridiculous and truly useless the great majority of our opinions really are. Everyone has an opinion on approximately everything, and nearly every opinion is wrong. Only when we know it very well, and APPLY IT MANY TIMES is there anything upon which to craft an informed opinion.
The Psychology of Shortcuts invites you to give this concept more time than most, because learning it at deeper levels ensures that this effective shortcuts will serve you many times and in many ways:
Only when we succeed at it are we qualified to teach others. Then and only then is a person qualified to offer a licit opinion. Those who ask for more inevitably receive more. It applies to you today as much as it applied to you as an infant hollering for your food. Think about it. Ask ask ask.
Modified repetition is the foundation of every human skill.
Using shortcuts, particularly your better shortcuts, the better shortcuts of our winners and champions - role models - -- reliably and consistently produces phenomenal results.
GO FOR IT!!
