Duplication – Post 090

“It’s not the big things you do every once in a while, but the little things you do every day that really count!” Rich Stocks What is this really saying? 

Let’s look at some examples…

1.  Imagine that you are offered $1,000,000 cash today or 1 penny doubled every day for thirty days.  Which would you choose?  If you do the arithmetic you’ll soon realize that a penny doubled every day for thirty days turns out to be over $10,000,000!  Over 10 times the value even though you start by doubling something as small as a penny!

2.  Imagine I give you an extremely large sheet of paper of regular thickness and ask you to fold the paper in half and then in half again fifty times.  After the fiftieth fold, how thick would your stack of folded paper be?  Possibly the thickness of a phone book?  Or how about a mile?  Actually the thickness of that paper folded fifty times would reach from the earth to the sun.  Folding one more time would make it the distance to the sun and back.  Isn’t that amazing?

Even starting with something as small as a penny or the thickness of a sheet of paper can turn into something immense if doubling or duplication occurs.  The principle is based upon a large number of people doing simple and ordinary tasks which as a whole amount to immense results.  Listen to how one entrepreneur explained it…

“I’d rather have 1% of the effort of 100 people than 100% of my own” – Jean Paul Getty

How does understanding the principle of duplication help me?

This is the basis of royalty or residual type incomes that creates huge wealth.  In other words, rather than basing your income on a large one time sale (example of the $1,000,000 above), what if you could base your income on a small piece of a continually growing pie (the penny doubling over thirty days)?  By following simple tasks and teaching others to do the same, you can put yourself in line to benefit from the doubling principle over and over again until your income reaches unbelievable heights.
