Episode 68: The Power of Leverage – Achieving More with Less Effort

Episode Date:Apr 11, 2023

Today we're talking about the power of leverage – achieving more with less effort.

"Be more, do more, suck less?" Sounds like a cheesy slogan. But trust me, there's real wisdom behind it. By being aware of what's working and what's not in your life and biz, you can do more of what's working and less of what isn't. It's like a cheat code for success.

So what is leverage? It's about learning from every moment and finding the path to what you want. When you lean into leverage fully, you create what's called asymmetric returns – less effort, more results. 

As entrepreneurs, we often focus on doing things right instead of doing the right things. But when we find leverage in our lives and businesses, we can assess what's working and what's not, and adjust accordingly. It's like a superpower that stops us from wasting time and energy doing the wrong things.

You are now listening to Leverage for Growth. Hey everybody this is Jesse P. Gilmore founder of Niche in Control and creator of the Leverage for Growth, welcome to the daily leverage edition. 

Today’s topic is this “The Power of Leverage: Achieving More with Less Effort”. Sit back, relax and welcome to today’s daily leverage.


So this morning, I was doing my morning routine of stacking and reflecting on the concept that was taught to me in a mastermind that I am a part of.


The tagline: be more, do more, suck less 


At first, I thought this was just catchy and didn’t have as much overall meaning until I realize that we are helping our clients do this as well. 


Getting into a routine of being aware of what is working and not working in their life and business and simply doing more of what is working and less of what isn’t. 


Continuing to move forward in a path of true leverage


Not leverage of others


But leveraging what are learning daily


So what is leverage


Leverage is learning from every moment


Leverage is learning vicariously through others


Leverage is finding the path to what you want and going after it


Leverage is finding the best parts of you and your organization and simply doing more of what is working and in alignment with you. 


Leverage comes from lever which in physics is a way of using less effort to achieve more 


When we lean into leverage fully, we create what is called asymmetric returns


Less effort, more results


In yesterdays episode about allowing abundance I talked about how important it is to set up the systems and build abundance into your life


Then when it is built, to simply allow abundance to happen 


This is what we do when we embrace leverage in our lives


This is why I am so passionate about leverage for growth as a method, strategy and system


We simply are opening up abundance to surround us as we create a life and business by design


In doing so, we create a life that we can be proud of 


Why is this important?


Many times as entrepreneurs, we focus on doing whatever anyone else is doing and focus on doing things right 


When we should be focused on doing the right things 


How do we find the right things to do? 


We find leverage in our lives by assessing what is working and what is not 


Then doing more of what is working and less of what is not


Doing this on a daily and weekly basis aligned to our long term goals


It’s game over 


Now it is time for daily leverage.


Where in your world whether in your life or business, have you been distracted from using leverage to get what you want?


Is it in your life with your health or body? 


Is it in your life with your spirituality or self-direction? 


Is it in your relationships with your spouse, partner or kids?


Is it in your business or finances or team?


Once you have located where you have been lacking leverage and you know what you need to change. 


My question to you is this…


What are you willing and able to do about it today?


That is the end of our daily leverage. This is Jesse P. Gilmore and you have been listening to the Leverage for Growth podcast.
