What is a quantum leap? Dr. Fred Alan Wolf from “What The Bleep Do We Know“, defines it as “the explosive jump that a particle of matter undergoes in moving from one place to another; in a figurative sense, taking the quantum leap means taking a risk, going off into an uncharted territory with no guide to follow”.
What Does “Quantum Leap” Really Mean?
Many years ago, when I started studying really successful people, there was always a part of their journey where they took this “quantum leap”. They seem to have taken action on “blind faith” and before they knew it, they were successful. It wasn’t overnight success, it was changing their habits and diligently doing things in a different way than what they were doing before. After doing this over and over, they created new habits and subsequently started to get new results. Then at some point, it seems that their “climb” to success took a quantum leap! One day, they looked up and realized they had achieved so much without really noticing. This is called the “Quantum Leap” or exponential improvement in your personal effectiveness!
Steps To Multiply Your Effectiveness
So, what really happened? What did they do? First, they became aware that the way they were doing things wasn’t working. I realized this after working 14 hrs/day in the corporate world for 13 years. It’s like the definition of insanity – doing the same things over and over and expecting different results. Read the story of the fly and the window pane. (click for post) .
Second, they made a decision of what they wanted and where they were going. Third, they focused on it all the time. This is where tools like daily affirmations, visualization, dream boards, and understanding how to “upgrade your mind’s software” become very important.
Fourth, as you constantly focus and “live” in your “dream board” world, you will see things differently because you are now looking for your “dream board” reality. For example, haven’t you noticed just when you decided you wanted a new car, you started to see more of that car you were looking for? Or mothers, when you got pregnant, all of a sudden, there seemed to be so many pregnant women around us! 😯 That’s how it works!
We notice and attract the people and things into our life who match our “dream picture” in our mind’s eye. Opportunities are all around us, however, we don’t notice them until we are really looking. When I was working at my job, I never noticed the home based business industry or even the network marketing industry because I wasn’t looking for an opportunity. As soon as I decided I wanted to spend more time with my son, I got a “work at home” booklet in the mail and I took action. This changed my life forever because I started down my entrepreneurial road to success.

Are you ready to take a Quantum Leap? 😆 The video I mentioned on how to “Change Your Outer World By Changing Your Inner World” is in our post called “Are You Stuck In A Rut & Ready To Get Out?“. And always remember, as our friend and mentor Jim Rohn said “Work Harder On Yourself Than You Do On Your Job (career)“.
