0:00 – 0:32 Introduction

Hi! It’s Adrian Law here from theacademyofpositivechange.com. We are coming to you live with my beautiful daughter, Madison. We are here in the sunny, surprisingly sunny England. I am at my parent’s place. We’ve collected all these trophies. Stay tuned because I will explain what this is about and winning trophies applies to you in your business.

0:33 – 1:12 Start With An Outcome

I’ve just been looking in the garage through an old suitcase  that was full of trophies that I won many years ago for snooker and also chess. If you are not familiar with snooker, it’s generally 4x bigger than a pool table and a lot more complicated. I played a bit of pool as well, but the key that I want to share with you today is how being good at snooker, chess and pool helps you in business.

You need to be very strategic to be good at all of these things. If you want to be successful in your business, you need to be strategic also. For example, the first part of being good at snooker and chess is you need to have an outcome, and that is to win. Now, the outcome remained the same but depending on who I was playing, the strategy would be different.

1:13 – 2:01 Have  A Strategy

That being the case, they used to play against me for money and I would give them up to a 100 points start. The game of snooker only has a maximum of 147 points on the table, so a 100 points is  a lot of start. However, 95% of the time, I would win.

The reason I won is because of my strategy.

Ask yourself the question, what is your strategy in business? Start with an outcome of what you want to achieve, which is point number 1. Then what’s the strategy? My strategy for winning at snooker whilst giving 100 points start, was to make a 40 or 50 break. If you are not familiar with that terminology, compiling a break is creating a continuous amount of points without missing. After I had made a 40 or 50 break, I would play a safety shot.

A safety shot is playing as shot where the cue ball (the white ball) is left in a position where it’s very difficult for the other person to pot anything. After a couple more shots each, they would miss. I would make another 40, 50 or 60 break, and all of a sudden the 100 points lead that I gave them initially has gone, and that’s how I won. Also, during the strategy that I had, I was able to think 3, 4 or sometimes 5 shots ahead, of what I would do next or what my opponent may do if I missed. This was the same whilst playing chess. Always thinking and planning ahead.

Thinking and planning ahead is vital in your own business. I believe that you also need to have systems and processes that are very simple, so others can follow them and they are easy to do. I didn’t over complicate how I played snooker or chess. I didn’t play too fancy like some other players but I was very good. You don’t need to be fancy to be very good either.

One of the things that we implemented in our business that I’ve turned into a product and will share with you quite soon, is putting together simple systems to achieve various outcome. You might want to create a video blog like this or have a podcast. Perhaps you’d like to have a transcription of the blog (like this) with links back to your site and have it shared on all the social media sites.

We’ve created really simple, yet effective systems to create a great result.  Then, to make sure it’s really, really easy to use, I’ve got people who have never seen the system before to see if they can follow it and get the desired result quickly.

If they can’t we keep refining the system or process until they can and if this is something you would like to have, you will be able to..

What’s the goal here? It’s to automate your business so you can actually earn a very good income without needing to do hardly any of the work.

Does that sound good?

Why do you think I am able to travel the world and visit all these different countries like I do? It’s not because I’m any smarter than you. It’s simply because we have simple systems in place and a good strategy to implement them
