Use Compound Interest In Business & Health

Albert Einstein said that the most powerful force in the universe is compound interest and it is either working for you or against you!

Everyone understands that compound interest applies to money.

compound interestYou can invest in something and accumulate interest which then begins to pay you interest on the interest which means that it is compounding. You are making money on your interest.

Or you can borrow money and pay interest, which when it is compounded, costs you money.

In both cases one day of interest is minor, yet when compounded it becomes huge.

Compound interest is either working for you or against you and it is your choice.

Compound Interest In Business

The principle of compound interest relates to everything it is applied to.

Just like the law of gravity (another principle), there are no exceptions.

It applies to your life, health and also to your business.

Let’s say that you eat a bag of chips today.

Chances are that it won’t kill you. If the results of poor eating choices were more immediate, then fewer people would be unhealthy, because the fear of death would stop them from continuing to make poor choices in their diets.

It is only when you eat a bag of chips every day that the choice becomes a powerful force that brings you ill health.

The choice of eating an apple today will not result in immediate health benefits, yet when eaten daily, the power will kick in and pay off with a healthy body.

Compound Interest In Direct Sales Business

Compound interest plays a role in your direct sales business too.

Make your calls today and it will affect your business a little.

Make a big impact habit of making your calls 5 days a week for the rest of your life and compound interest will become a force in your office, generating a solid and consistent stream of income.

It goes the other way too.

Skip your calls today and your business will not fold. Skip your calls continuously and your business will be shutting its doors.

Success Depends On Daily Investment

A day to day investment in your direct sales business will guarantee long term success.   One day at a time investing continuously in your business will result in success.

Albert Einstein believed that compound interest is the most powerful force in the universe. If it is not working for you, then it IS working against you.

Deb Bixler says:“Life Is Like A Razor Blade”.

Think about your health, your business and your entire life as a razor blade.

Life is a razor blade, and you are sitting on the cutting edge.

We make millions of choices each day and every choice is a slice of life.

Every choice you make is in itself only a razor-thin slice of life and, by itself, has little or no major impact on the future.

Every slice/choice of life you make is either positive or negative, and alone it is weak.

Yet every slice of life is compounded with the others to create the most powerful force in the universe.

Think about every choice you make in your life and do your best to make razor-thin slices on the positive side of life.  When you do so continuously they compound and become the most powerful force in the universe.

One small slice on the good side of life will drive your future in the right direction.

When you make too many slices on the negative side it will start to work against you. When you slice more on the positive side of life, you will leverage your results by using compound interest on your behalf.

In your business every choice is minor in terms of immediate results.

Yet on a long-term basis, the most powerful force in the universe will be working for you or against you…. your choice!

Successful people understand that life is about making razor-thin choices each day to choose their future and put the principle of compound interest to work for them.

Are YOU willing to choose success one day at a time?

    I’ve learned that consistently make conscious choices that align with our goals and plans, in all areas of our lives, will keep us moving up and on. I like the use of “compound interest” as a visualization. Great job, Deb!

    This is so true about incremental change.
    If you select 5 to 6 things that will move your direct sales business forward every day, and do those, you will see large incremental change in the space of every month. Is it making calls? Is it mailing the thank you note or hostess pack or recruiting pack the same day? What do you need to: Start Doing, Stop Doing, Do More Of, Do Less Of? It all counts toward those goals and future success. Thanks Deb for a great article.

    So often we can get discouraged, but need not to withdraw from the bank but deposit more–compound interest and persistence pays off! We just need to remind ourselves since it is our business.

    Do something daily to move your business forward. That is exactly what I try to instill in my team! We will get the same results if we keep doing the same thing. How many times have you heard people say, “Oh, that (business) just wasn’t for me …” … do you think they were REALLY doing something daily to move their business forward? Okay, off my soapbox!! LOL Great article, Deb!!!

    This is a good way to look at business, so often I forgot that each day’s activities may not show results right away, but if I start thinking about them in terms of compound interest then I know that the payout for that days results will be compounded over time. Thanks for another great article!
