I have always been asked, ” What is your secret to success?” I created my theory and I am growing wings to make sure its practical. I have been to school studying theories that have been made by Europeans but I have not yet seen an African make a theory. If there is a theory or model made by an African I confess my ignorance. As an African I decided to coin my own theory to success.
My theory : LAW OF MULTIPLICATION
This is one of the important laws I consider important. Its not a secret as it is open to the public.
Theory: Think in multiplication to multiply success.
The universe is a product of multiplication. Everything in life should be multiplied. Knowing how to multiply makes you successful. If you want to succeed think in multiplication. I don’t mean that its a Maths class however thinking in multiplication will make your ideas breed success. Let me give you examples of how people think in multiplication.
As a writer, I can write only 1 book then publish it to be read by more than a thousand people. If I ask myself how many times I wrote the book, I find out that I just wrote once but I multiply the book into more than 1000 copies to boost in sales. I might spend my entire lifetime earning money from a book I wrote once. Then think about all those writers who have written a 100 books. Its the law of multiplication.
As a farmer I can plant 1 maize seed and then in 3 months I get a cob which has a minimum of 30- 60 seeds. What then do you think of the whole plantation. After all it’s only 3 months needed to work in the plantation to produce a yield that last the whole year. What would I do with the other 9 months when I am not farming? Law of multiplication
I can have a piece of land maybe 40 X 40 square metres in a rural setup and plant an orchard in a rainy season. I then put 20 X 20 seeds of different fruits meaning I will get 400 trees.
How many times do I plant an orchard. Its just one. But I will enjoy the whole of my lifetime enjoying the fruits of something I just planted once. That the law of multiplication.
Let me say enough of farming, an example in the field of technology.
An IT Guru can create a software just once yet the software is installed to as many computers as possible in the technological market. How many times was the software created? How many android applications are raining on google play store. I can create a relevant application for consumers and sell it for 20 cents. Since its a relevant application I can multiply by 200 000 who can download( this is just a minimum possible download) 0.20 X 200 000 = 40 000 USD. How many times did I create the application project. It was just once. Then we start to wonder why Bill Gates is a billionaire. Simple it’s no secret. Its the law of multiplication.
I can have one single website to advertise my products but I reach thousands of people. Ask yourself how many websites do I have? Its just one, its still the law of multiplication to boost my sales. Facebook is just one single website, though continuously improved but its still the same website but we have millions of people on it.
WhatsApp platform. How many times was it invented. Just once, Its the law of multiplication.
What about a musician. How many times does he or she records an album. Just once but he or she multiplies by selling a lot of copies when launching an album.
Whatever you do and think just try to think in terms of multiplication. Just think of something you can do once and multiply. Sometimes it’s not always about working harder, sometimes its about working smarter.
Warren Buffet’s statement sometimes makes me wonder, truth does hurt.
“If you don’t find a way to make money while you sleep, you will work until you die.”
I bet if we think and act in multiplication then we will surely succeed. What is it that you can do today that can be multiplied tomorrow?
