Who doesn't love a good clickbait title. I just can't resist. It's even more fun doing it on blackhatworld where you can poke fun at it :)


So you want to know the secret to really finally becoming a millionaire and living the life of your dreams?

There's really one absolutely fundamental thing that you will find at the heart of the daily routine of every hyper successful person. Usually the more successful they are, the more they'll do this.

And what is it.. ?

*DRUMROLL*

SAY NO.

That's it. That's all there is to it. If you can say NO to everything you're going to reach crazy levels of success.

This applies at every single level of success from the very beginning of the journey, right up to running a $1 trillion market cap company.

There's so many rules and productivity systems and the problem with them is it's too much to remember. You need a really simple concept you will never forget. Something you can wake up every day, pick up your pad beside your bed and read the words "JUST SAY NO" and it sets the tone for the day.

So what does this mean in practice?

For those of you not making any money, it means you say NO to, Netflix, sleeping, eating junk, watching YouTube, watching TikTok, reading Twitter, mentally masturbating with feel good money making guides.

You create your 3-5 year plan(not 1 year. We over estimate what we can do in a year, and underestimate what we can do in 3-5. Be patient.) If you don't know what you can do yet and have very little skills, then just make a very modest, easy to achieve 6 month plan instead that will move you somewhere better than you are.

Break it down into smaller quarterly chunks.

Take your first quarter. Plan out a week.

Take your week and write down 3-5 things you need to do today.

Really important to pick ONLY things that will move you towards your goal. Fuck being productive. Don't try to be productive. Only focus on moving closer to your end goal and get stuff done as fast as you can. Do the minimum to get the task done.

Now, just say NO to everything else.

This is how people go from $50k/mo to $500k/mo.

Saying NO to JVs. NO to creating a second business. NO to that person that wants to talk to you on Facebook about business for an hour. None of that shit will help you.

If it's not directly checking off the 3-5 tasks on your daily task list, say NO. Don't let your mind convince you that what you're doing is helpful. It's not. Chatting with people about business, watching business videos or engaging in the mental masturbation of planning something out in mass detail is not going to make you money. These just feel good and give you easy dopamine hits.

You need to get your dopamine hits from checking off tasks on your daily list and moving towards your end goal.

Hint: You never want to reach that end goal. Keep moving it so you never reach it. You'll fuck up your dopamine if you let yourself celebrate a big win. Just keep moving the goalposts forward. You get dopamine from the journey.

Most people misunderstand dopamine.

Here's why games like World of Warcraft are so so addictive..

In a game do you ever really want to reach the end so badly that you feel like you're going to be happy if you get there? Do you project your happiness to completing a game? Nope.

The fun in the game is the journey, and the way games like WoW are setup is to give you lots of little rewards. Level 2, level 3, level 4, new weapon, new gloves, new boots.. Now let's level up our Skinning skill a bit, now we'll work on Leatherworking.. Tick tick tick, 4, 5, 6, 7. Dopamine dopamine dopamine.

Dopamine isn't meant to be a reward for achieving an end result. It's actually setup to keep you ON the journey.

If you're out picking berries the dopamine hit is not when you finish and get home. You start with your empty basket and head out. You get dopamine hits as you get closer and closer. You get dopamine hits as you put each berry in. As the basket fills up, you're getting little dopamine hits.

Here's the trick. Once you've completed the mission, you want to trigger serotonin, not dopamine. You do that by feeling appreciation. That means after you've got your basket full of berries and you get home, you BREATH, relax, and try not to feel a high from it. Just sit back and appreciate the work you've done and the end result you got. You'll get a serotonin hit and your dopamine pathways will be ready to continue the next day without a big drop from the end result not living up to your expectation.

Manage expectations. Don't expect anything from the end result. There is nothing there. Just feel appreciation for the journey and the work that got you there, and what you have now. A quiet, calm appreciation.

When you're playing a game you do say NO to everything naturally. You just focus on your current mission easily because it's setup to give you the little dopamine hits. You aren't in the middle of a WoW quest gathering wolf skins or whatever you're doing and decide "Hey, I'm going to stop this and go and watch a video on how to gather bear skins", or "I'm going to watch a video on how to raid at end-game". You just gather your wolf skins. With each skin you get, a little dopamine hit.

Setup your day with just your essential tasks and say NO to everything that doesn't involve completing task 1. Once you've done it, check it off and enjoy that dopamine hit.

Repeat for task 2, then 3, then 4, then 5.

At the end of the day you'll have this feeling of satisfaction. You said NO to *everything* in your day and only checked off your tasks.

If you do this every day you build up more and more momentum and energy and you'll find it hard to get distracted. It'll feel sickening. You'll become addicted to the dopamine of checking off those tasks. (This is the addiction you want). This is why some people are absolute workaholics and cannot switch off. They just want to be checking off tasks, all day, all week, all month. They're addicted. They can't go to a beach and relax. They want to check off some fucking tasks on the list. To quote Jordan Peterson, this is the guy that if you send him out into the woods with just an axe he'll start chopping down trees all day. :)

All you have to do is say NO.

As you make more and more money, you'll get more distractions, more opportunities, more offers. It's the same old crap disguised differently. It's just Netflix in another form pretending it'll help you.

Just focus on 1 thing. Your mission. The 1 thing you picked and did your long term plan for. That's the only thing you need. If it doesn't move you closer to that goal, say NO.
 
TL;DR:

FOCUS

Not just focus though, because if you tell someone to "focus", they focus on everything.

The key is you make your plan with the specific business you're going to create, and you say NO to everything else that doesn't involve ACTUALLY BUILDING IT.

Like if you're going to build a house, if you aren't actually laying bricks and cutting wood, you aren't building it. If you're building an ecommerce store, if you're not creating the site, sourcing the products, creating the ads, hiring someone for support, training staff or doing something active, then you aren't actually building it. The question you should ask is, "If I keep doing tasks like this, will I have an active, live, running business at the end of it" -- If the answer is no, then what you're doing is just "being productive"

That's very neat. Thanks for your explanation. I think the whole point here is to focus on the things that matter the most. Focus on the things that will take us one step closer to our end goal. And also not to celebrate when you finish something, instead have fun while achieving it.
 
You are such a talented writer, you could sell anything.

Wish I could hire you to write my copy, lol.
 
Probably the best post I have ever seen, Dopamine detox and choosing where you get the dopamine from is the key to long term success. If you can manipulate your dopamine and make it work for you, That's all we need to get things done
