Today I'm going to talk about the “five finger rule”, so what is this five finger law for success in business? Okay, so you have five fingers on your hand. So let's work these fingers and let's see what each of these fingers means for your successful business. First finger is thumbs up and what does this mean? It means positivity. You know, you have to have positivity in your business and you have to be positive to build a successful business because if you’re always looking for problems, if you're always looking for negativity, if you’re spreading rumours, if you're talking bad behind people's backs, if you’re into negative stuff, it will be difficult to build a successful business. It's going to take longer; it's going to be slower progress if you're always negative. So remember, thumbs up stands for positivity in your business. You have to be positive yourself. Surround yourself with positive people and eliminate negativity from your business as much as you can.
Second finger is the pointing finger. And what does it do? it points direction! So first positivity, you have to have positivity in your business. Second, you have to have direction in your business, which means you need to know where you're going, you have to have a vision, a goal, a target because there's so many people when you ask them, “What do you want to get out of this?” and they go, “I want more money. So I'll go, “Well, here's a pound. Now you have more money, right?” They go, “No, no, no, I want a lot more money.” So how much more? How big is the team? What level do you want to hit? What car do you want to buy? Which countries you want to visit? So you have to have a direction in your business in order to know where it's going in order to know if you're succeeding or not, because if you have no target then you have no way of hitting it and you have no way of knowing that you arrived, that you succeeded, maybe you went up a level or whatever.
The third finger is the tricky one, right? Because we all know what the middle finger means. What does the middle finger mean? You know, when we show it, its international, it's understood in all languages. When you show that it's rude. But in this case, in this scenario, in terms of five fingers for your business, in this context, what it means is attitude, you have to have the attitude where you don't care what other people think of you. You don't worry about the critics and the haters. The middle finger basically stands for attitude; do you have the right attitude where you are not fazed by other people criticising you. You're not addicted to other people liking or loving you, you're not trying to please everyone. You know, you're doing something big, you know you're achieving your mission and your vision in life and you're going to do it no matter what. So if some people are going to try and criticise you, some people are going to try and knock you of course, you're not going to stop, you're not going to give up because you have that attitude. Like “Hey you’re either with me or you without me,” Like, I will do it with you or without you. But I'll still going to do it. I'll still going to succeed. So that's the middle finger.
The fourth finger is the wedding finger; it’s the wedding band finger. So what does it mean? You know, when we put the wedding ring on the finger, what does that mean? Well that means is values, so your business first it has to have positivity, direction, attitude and the fourth one is values. You have to have the right values in your business and you have to value other people; respect other people, respect everybody's journey that some people will go at it faster, slower different people will have different desires, different people will have different goals and ambitions and don't play with other people. Don't play with people's feelings, don't play with people's dreams, don't guilt people, manipulate people or put people down worst of all be negative to other people. In your business the finger number four stands for value and it has to have values where you do your business with integrity, where you’re helping people out, you’re supporting people and you're not trying to put people down and things like that.
The last finger, the little finger is all the small details. A lot of people think that, “Oh, for me to succeed in business, for me to succeed in life, I'd have to be like a superhuman, I'd have to be like a genius, I'd have to be working and grinding 24 hours a day. But in reality, that's rarely the case, very often for you to succeed in business or in life, or in sports, or in relationship, all you have to do is just a little bit more than everybody else. That's all you have to do. They say, if you're running away from a bear with your friend, you don't have to be a fast runner, you just have to run a little bit faster than your friend. So same in business you don't have to be a genius, you don't have to be the hardest working person in the world. You don't have to invent something new necessarily, all you have to do is just remember, and it’s all about the little details.
So one is just going that extra mile, speaking to the one extra person every single day, sending the one extra sample every single month, doing that one extra coaching your team member every single day, what other people wouldn't do. Did you realise that most people quit this business after getting 10 No’s’? So after 10 people say to them, “No I’m not interested,”
a lot of people will quit. So to be great in this business, you don't have to be like super human. All you have to do is do a little bit more than most people and you will stand out straight away. You know, if you just go come to the event a little bit earlier than everybody else, if you leave the event a little bit later than everybody else, if you make just a little bit more notes than everybody else, if you participate just a little bit more than everybody else, if you sell just few more products than everybody else, if you just invite few more people than everybody else, your business will change dramatically.
It’s those little things that you do consistently day in, day out, not once a month, not once a week but daily. It's daily method of operation, not Monday to Friday method of operation, not when I feel like it method of operation, not when it's not raining outside, its daily method of operation. Guess what this blog post is one of my daily method of operation, it’s one of my tick boxes every single day I have to do this rain or shine. I'm in UK, Lithuania or I'm in Turkey or I’m in America, whether I feel good or not, this is my daily method of operation. It has to be done. It has to happen. And guess what? Again, all I'm doing is just a little bit more than everybody else, like most people do blog posts but maybe not every day. Maybe they do once a week, maybe twice a week. Maybe whenever they feel like it. I just choose to do it every single day. Does that make sense?
So the little finger is all the details, it’s going an extra Mile, but also the detail in terms of knowing your business. You know, do you actually know your business? They say, if you don't know your numbers, you don't know your business. So if I asked if you how many active business partners did you have in your team last month? Would you give me an answer? Or would you go, “I don't know.” If I asked you how many leaders you have in business? Would you have an answer for that? If I asked you which towns or cities your biggest amount of team members are in? Would you have an answer? If I asked you, what's your strategy for the next week, for tomorrow, for the next month, and for the next year? Would you have an answer? If I asked you what’s the goals of your team? Would you have an answer? That's the details.
Sometimes it's easy just to be very superficial, just trying to go with the flow and very rarely you climb Mount Everest by mistake, by going with the flow. There is no flow there you have to go against the flow, you have to go against the grain to get this. If you want big results you have to really also focus on those details. So that's the five finger law for success in your business. One, thumb; you have to have positivity in your business. Two, direction you have to have direction for your business. Three, you have to have the right attitude. Four, you have to have the right values and value other people in your business and five you have to look at the small detail and you have to go that little bit extra than everybody else and guess what, you're going to have amazing results in your business if you just follow these five tips and it's very easy to remember because you have the one of these with you most of the time.
