Pareto's Principle is Alive and Well

According to Wikipedia, The Pareto Principle states that for many outcomes, roughly 80% of consequences come from 20% of the causes (the “vital few”). Other names for this principle are the 80/20 rule, the law of the vital few, or the principle of factor sparsity.

I believe The Pareto Principle is alive and well today.

80% of the people in the world are attempting to figure out how to "crack the code" of success while 20% have done so.

80% of the people on social media are chasing likes, comments, and views as well as trying to "solve the algorithm" while 20% are killing it.

80% of people read less than one book a year (if they even read at all) while 20% make it a priority to read every day.

80% of people fail to prioritize their health (physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually) while 20%, again, make it a priority.

80% of people are obsessed with watching the news (FOMO is real), checking into social media countless hours of the day (this is why they don't read books), or otherwise engaging in negative activities while the 20% fully embrace positivity.

80% of the people are unhappy while 20% are loving life (which has nothing to do with money).

Are you in the 80% or the 20%? 

If you know you're among the 20%, surround yourself with people who are also in this group (you're probably already doing this) and distance yourself from anyone (including lifelong friends or family members) or anything that is in the 80% (brutal truth today).

If you know you're among the 80%, all is not lost. What can you do TODAY to begin to migrate over to the 20%? Again, this has nothing to do with money. It's a mindset issue.

Being among the 20% is not a cult or a secret group. It's about a choice to choose love, joy, freedom, and peace.

So...what group are you a member of?
