  1. 1. THE PUSH FACTOR PUSH FACTOR &EXPONENTIAL ZONEThe Ultimate Secret of Success By Dr. Stephen M. Sweid Dubai Dec. 2012 Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 1
  2. 2. What is THE PUSH FACTOR?• The PUSH factor is a major component of your success system. There are usually some 30 components in the success system.• Success system is a combination similar to a KEY (and lock), if one component is missing it does not work. It is a system approach and PUSHING is a major component.• Your success system is coupling with a specific environment to achieve a specific goal Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 2
  3. 3. Success = Healthy Coupling With The World ENVIRONMENT Interaction MATCH AREA NEEDS OPPORTUNITIES YOU / COMPANY Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 3
  4. 4. Why Is It That The Turtle, Hedgehog And Chameleon Do Not Run? 4 Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012
  5. 5. It is easier to Change Yourself• It easier to change yourself, and adapt to the world, rather than to change the whole world.• Many tools are available to help this adaptation process. Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 5
  6. 6. Different Systems of Tools:With Tools There Are No Frontiers to Adaptation toEnvironment, including management tools, skills .. Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 6
  7. 7. Back To: WHAT IS THE PUSH FACTOR?• PUSH factor is needed to get the idea off the ground, i.e. make it happen. The PUSH factor is essential to get things done, to achieve, assuming all other factors are available. The PUSH is essential For sustainable success• The PUSH factor is linked directly to your personal or organizational DRIVING force to achieve and make things happen. It is a combination of forces. It is what motivates you or your organization and its leaders to stay away from your comfort zone, push your limits and achieve challenging tasks. Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 7
  8. 8. What is The PUSH FACTOR?• The PUSH factor is needed to get over difficult obstacles, to solve difficult problems.• It is about going the extra mile. As they say, when the going gets tough the tough gets going. It is about facing the challenge.• Push is about focusing your efforts to get things moving.• PUSH factor is crucial and is similar to money, as it can create all other components, including money and people. Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 8
  9. 9. PUSH factor involves all what is available to you to set challenging things in motion: Your heart, mind, body, money and other skills and other available resources. Brain Power, Logic, Analysis, Specifically, Creativity, Communication, Learning .. PUSH can People .. include Observation, research, Research .. Strength, planning, Resilience change, Heart, Stamina, Adventure, Risk project Motion, Taking .. management Discovery spending, Other available Resources and but also tools courage, patience .. Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 9
  10. 10. What does PUSH involve?• The PUSH factor is not about effort only, but more about EXTRA EFFORT, Pushing the limits, challenging the unknown and new territory, such as dealing with a new environment or new situation and conditions, solving some problems, creating something new etc.• Most attempts in life deal with the unknown. Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 10
  11. 11. We Are Talking EXTRA Challenging Tasks And Goals.EXTRA in your PUSH:You have to resort to extra courage, extra risk taking, extra effort, extra patience and resilience, extra observation and analysis, extra creative thinking, extra positive thinking, extra communications etc. Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 11
  12. 12. THE PUSH FACTOR What does PUSH involve?• PUSH can involve a lot of RESEARCH work and search trying to discover and find things, identify opportunities or leads in a specific new environment, such as when looking for a job or project or doing marketing or buying or solving a problem, project management etc.• Part of the effort is the learning bit. Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 12
  13. 13. The measure of the PUSH Factor: 3 Parameters1. The quality (Nature) of the PUSH2. The strength (Intensity) of the PUSH3. Continuity of the PUSH: Perseverance Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 13
  14. 14. MATRIX: Push Versus Difficulty Of Task Complexity & Duration of Task Low Medium High HighPUSH Strength & Continuity Good Good Good Chance Chance Chance Some Might Likely Medium Chance Just Work Failure Might Likely Assured Low Just Work Failure Failure Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 14
  15. 15. PUSH Versus Difficulty Of Task: ELABORATION THE PUSH FACTOR• Complexity and duration are relative notions, different for each person and company etc. Someone is used to millions of dollars while another has never seen 10,000 $ .• You have to push more than the degree of difficulty, i.e. to combat it.• When pushing hard things become much easier after a short while.• Some people do not have the stamina or cannot sustain the push for long. Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 15
  16. 16. THE PUSH FACTOR• There are many setbacks in the PUSH process, but they are part of the measure of effort of PUSH, e.g. the perseverance, research, and the learning curve.• Example: Research can be frustrating e.g. when you do not find what you are looking for. Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 16
  17. 17. Why Push?Push in each stage of the process, and push to go fromone stage to another in the realization of the idea inyour head, i.e. to reach your goal. REALITY ON THE GROUND IDEA IN YOUR Stage 1 Stage 2 Stage 3 HEAD Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 17
  18. 18. PUSH Factor To Find Hidden Treasures Or Even To Create Your Own. Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 18
  19. 19. PUSH To Find Your Hidden Paradise, Or Even Create One Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 19
  20. 20. PUSH to Make a Quantum Leap Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 20
  21. 21. PUSH to Change On the DNA Level 21 Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012
  22. 22. The Realization Code• There is a specific intelligent code YOU have to apply to transform an idea into reality, i.e. into life. This is the process or sequence of activities needed. It is the logical bit.• It is a sequence of intelligent instructions, similar Planning, Execution, Project management etc.• Example you want to work on a project. First you have to find the customer who will give you the project, then you have to win the contract, then to execute the project on budget time and quality etc. Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 22
  23. 23. The intelligent Realization CodeThe code (program) involves the combination ofsuccess system (The thirty components), includingtime, i.e. steps, sequence, durations, etc. Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 23
  24. 24. YOU have to PUSH• The whole universe and galaxies and stars cannot make a simple idea of yours happen, not in one million years!. YOU have to make it happen. It is your purpose.• You have to push the process, you have to apply the code; there are stages.• Seldom coincidence brings the solution. Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 24
  25. 25. It is YOU Who Has To Push• You push from one stage to another, and within each stage of the code.• Other missing components can be covered by other experts, but not the PUSH factor: YOU have to do it.• YOU have to deploy the courage, YOU have to take responsibility, YOU have to take the risks, YOU have to fight, YOU have to be patient, YOU have to think, YOU have to solve the problem, YOU have to make the follow-up. YOU have to go the extra mile... Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 25
  26. 26. Yes, You• In the main, YOU will have to push to make it work, to transform the idea into reality.• You have to be very motivated to push and you have to motivate others to push with you, so that the idea will happen in reality.• Even if you have the whole key combination, but you are not pushing, nothing will happen. If you stop pushing things might revert to square one. Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 26
  27. 27. The right PUSH: Multiple Options Trying DIFFERENT things all the time, and finding out what works and what does not work in a specific environment, e.g. finding out the business practices. Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 27
  28. 28. A A A A The PUSH is A A A not only about A S A planning and S strategic A A S S planning etc. GA G S A SA G VISION A SA A GA G GOALS S CIRCLE S S A A STRATEGIES S CIRCLE A A A A A ACTIONS A A CIRCLE Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 28
  29. 29. PUSH involves a lot of research Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 29
  30. 30. PUSH involves people and References Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 30
  31. 31. The PUSH Factor Involves Knocking On Many Doors Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 31
  32. 32. RISK IMPACT Push MATRIX Minor Moderate Major Involves Taking Very Likely Medium High Extreme Risks Risk Risk Risk 3 4 2LIKELIHOOD High Zone of Low Medium Likely Risk Acceptable Risk Risk Risk 3 1 2 Low Low Medium Unlikely Risk Risk Risk 1 1 2 Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 32
  33. 33. At Some Stage The Success Impact Of The Push Goes EXPONENTIAL• >>>>> PROBABILITY OF SUCCESS GROWS EXPONENTIALLY with YOUR PUSH.• Hence if you push double, your chance of success might increase by 20 fold or even more! Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 33
  34. 34. Exponential Response Of Your Chances To Your PUSH YourChances ofSuccess PUSH Factor Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 34
  35. 35. The Exponential Response Of Your Chances• The probability of success grows exponentially with the PUSH , i.e. with effort, and not linearly. This is the great mystery of effort in relation to success, the great secret revealed.• If you invest double the effort or time, you will likely get more than 10 times the result.• Example you double your courage or risk level, BUT your chances might increase 20 times... Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 35
  36. 36. Exponential behavior• It can get more exponential, i.e. sharper curve, with more effort or more intelligent approach, i.e. SMART PUSH, and the closer one gets to the target.• Money makes things exponential too, but the PUSH factor is more powerful than money. THE PUSH FACTOR Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 36
  37. 37. WHY Do Your Chances Grow Exponentially With Your Push Level?• With pushing new doors open, heralding new resources and approaches. Suddenly you find your treasure.• Exponential because you bridge a specific gap through the little extra effort and make a big leap, similar tunnel effect.• It can lead to multiplier effect, but also domino effect, avalanche and resonance. Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 37
  38. 38. WHY Do Your Chances Grow Exponentially With Your Push Level?• It is exponential because it is connected to logic, e.g. analysis, information, synergy , creativity etc. One key information or deduction can make a great difference, a breakthrough. Brainwork is essential.• Because you find out exactly what is needed or exactly how to sell it, or you find a potential connection, or you find the clue and solution, or the missing parameter in the formula etc.• There is accumulation with time : Learning curve and adding value. Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 38
  39. 39. WHY do your chances grow exponentially with your push level?• There is synergy among the resources and people involved and synergy is exponential.• There is the added momentum : Things get rolling on their own after a while.• There are many prospects for breakthrough changes with some effort.• Great effort can lead to a quantum leap Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 39
  40. 40. Synergy of elements = Multiplier effectPush factor Stephen Sweid 2012 40
  41. 41. WHEN Does your Chance Become Exponential with the Push?• PUSH becomes exponential when it is performed with the right combination of courage, observation and learning, creative thinking, researching and perseverance.• >>> Then you get closer to your target and into the exponential zone. Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 41
  42. 42. Maximize Your PUSH to Get There• To make sure you get to the exponential zone of the PUSH, i.e. the breakthrough range, it is best to maximize the PUSH, i.e. to push your limits and perseverance, i.e. and keep pushing, i.e. continuity.• You know when it has become exponential because you start feeling the MAGIC. Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 42
  43. 43. The Closer You Get to the Target, the More Exponential it Gets!• It becomes more exponential when you are pushing closer towards your target, i.e. it gets warmer as they say.• you get more frequent positive signals when you get into the exponential zone. You start getting more frequent positive feedback and WOW effects.• But you will lose your way many times before you get to the exponential zone. Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 43
  44. 44. Push to the Exponential Zone Exponential zone Your Target PUSH Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 44
  45. 45. Examples Of The Exponential Zone• It is similar to when you go shopping. First you have a look at what is available, i.e. just window shopping. Then things shape up in your mind and suddenly you know what you want and start taking action.• It is also similar to treasure hunt, where you are initially far away from the treasure and you are just exploring and finding clues, then suddenly things fit together and you home in on your treasure.• It is also similar to defining your strategy: Initially everything is possible but then some patterns appear etc. Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 45
  46. 46. You Can Find Or Even Create Your Own Exponential Zone. Push factor Stephen Sweid 2012 46
