# THE MAGIC OF EXPONENTIAL GROWTH

## THE MAGIC OF EXPONENTIAL GROWTH

A PENNY DOUBLED EVERY DAY:
Would you rather have \$1,000,000 or a penny doubled every day for 30 days? Let’s say you are on to my little game and so you choose the penny doubled ever day. Okay great!
On Day 10 you would have \$5.12. You can get out now and I’ll give you \$500,000. Or you can stay in. On day 20 you have \$5242. I’ll give you one more chance to back out for \$250,000. Or you can choose to stay in. A penny doubled every day for 30 days = \$10.7 million (10X more than \$1 million)
Most people that don’t understand geometric progression would choose the \$1 million. Most people get out of Network Marketing way too soon because they don’t understand this principle of geometric progression!

By the way changing companies every 1- 3 years because you think you found something better has the same impact. Remember on day 10 you only have \$5.12 cents! You may look at your group after a year and feel like nothing is happening. That’s how it is in the beginning!

I made \$8 million in my last company, and after my first year I was earning less than \$200 per month. After my second year, I was earning less than \$3,000 a month. It’s the nature of geometric progression.

LILY PADS: A lily pad duplicates itself daily. You plant the lily pad in the pond. On day 30, the pond is 100% full. How full is the pond on the 29th Day?

THE POWER OF ONE MORE:

In network marketing we often talk about three who get three who get three. It never works this way in real life, but for purposes of example, let’s say it did. If you sponsored 3 and they each got three, you would have 9 on your second level. If they each got 3 you would have 27 on your third level and so on for 7 levels. This is what a perfect Three by Three Matrix would look like. 3X3X3X3X3X3X3 = 2187
1 = 3
2 = 9
3 = 27
4 = 81
5 = 243
6 = 729
7 = 2187

Now let’s suppose we teach each person to go out and just get one more for a total of four.
How many do you suppose would be in the 7th generation? It’s the power of 1 more. 4X4X4X4X4X4X4 = 16,384
1= 4
2 = 16
3 = 64
4 = 256
5 = 1,024
6 = 4,096
7 = 16,384

The difference between a 3X3 vs a 4X4 in our plan equals 14,197! In the job world the difference between 4 and 3 is 1. In our world the difference between 4 and 3 is 14,197!

Let’s take it a step further . . . Let’s say we teach each person to go out and get 5 instead of 4 or 3. So 5 who get 5 who get 5 and so on. 5X5X5X5X5X5X5 = 78,125!
1 = 5
2 = 25
3 = 125
4 = 625
5 = 3,125
6 = 15,625
7 = 78,125

The difference between 5 and 3 in the job world is 2. The difference between 5 and 3 in our world is 75,983! Do you see the difference that just of few more can make?

EVERYONE GET’S 1 PER MONTH:

MONTH 1 – 2 (YOU + 1)
MONTH 2 – 4
MONTH 3 – 8
MONTH 4 – 16
MONTH 5 – 32
MONTH 6 – 64
MONTH 7 – 128
MONTH 8 – 256
MONTH 9 = 512
MONTH 10 = 1,024
MONTH 11 =2,048
MONTH 12 = 4,096

ALL the people from months 1-10 combined don’t equal the number of people that came in on month 12!! Do you see the impact of quitting? And do you see the impact of not quitting! Those that stick around and WORK get the benefit of exponential growth. Now let’s add some dollars on to this. If each person represented \$5 a month in income take a look at what happens:

MONTH 1 – 2 (YOU + 1) = \$10/mo
MONTH 2 – 4 = \$20/mo
MONTH 3 – 8 = \$40/mo
MONTH 4 – 16 = \$80/mo
MONTH 5 – 32 = \$160/mo
MONTH 6 – 64 = \$320/mo
MONTH 7 – 128 = \$640/mo
MONTH 8 – 256 = \$1280/mo
MONTH 9 = 512 = \$3584/mo
MONTH 10 = 1,024 = \$5120/mo
MONTH 11 =2,048 = \$10,240
MONTH 12 = 4,096 = \$20,480

I’ve used months as an example here but each month can represent any unit of time. So for example if you are working the business part time, 1 month in this example could represent 90 days based on what you are putting into your business.

FOLDING PAPER:

And standard piece of 8X10 copy paper is .0039 thickness. I’m going to ask you to fold it 20 times and you won’t be able to. But you can try. This example will give you the true power of exponential growth and geometric progression.

Now fold your paper 3 times – It’s the thickness of a finger nail
