What's So Special About the Top 2 Percent?
An excerpt from The Top 2%
You might be wondering, “Why the 2 percent? Most leaders and success experts only look at the top 5 percent. What’s so special about the 2 PERCENT?”
Even when you’re not talking about money, it’s still better to be in the top 2 percent than the top 5 percent. Wouldn’t you rather be in the top 2 percent of healthy people? The top 2 percent of happy people? Have relationships that are better than 98 percent of everyone else?
The fact is, the days when being in the top 5 percent was good enough are gone. We live in a global village with, frankly, a bigger pool of talented motivated people who are competing against you. When you apply these ideas and techniques, you’ll be poised to be in the top 2 percent of any area in which you choose to succeed.
Have you ever wondered what the superstars of success do on a daily basis? The Top 2% will help you discover not only the tips, techniques, and actions that will lead you to the STARS, but also the mindset. For the people who live among the stars do so because every thought, every word, and every action comes from their dreams. George Bernard Shaw said, “You see things and you say, ‘Why?’ But I dream things that never were and I say, ‘Why not?’”
Dream things that never were! dream them into existence!
All things are possible for those who believe.
The fact is, the top 2 percent set the trends in every industry. They set the trends by imagining and dreaming things that didn’t exist and then doing what it took to make it happen. Whether you’re in business, entertainment, sports, politics or some other industry, if you’re in the top 2 percent, you have the power and influence to make things happen.
At Nightingale Learning Systems, we spent months researching through our library and identified 17 principles of success that were common among all of our top authors. We then arranged the 17 principles into a model that is represented by the shape of a star.
Each of the points of the star represents one area of success:
S – Sense of Purpose
T – Traits
A – Attitudes
R – Rapport with Others
S – Skills
Are you ready to rocket to the STARS? Your dreams are like the stars you see in the night sky. You may never touch them, but if you follow them, they will lead you to your destiny.
