I can remember it like it was yesterday. I had just gotten started in network marketing and boy was I fired up. I thought that by noon tomorrow I would have a huge organization and all of my friends and family were getting in and I was going to make all of this money.
Boy was I wrong!
In fact, it was just the opposite. Not only did none of them get in, but they started avoiding me like the plague. When I think back to that time, who could blame them.
You see, I had no real value to offer them. Sure the products and services were great, just not for them. I was pitching and selling instead of story telling. I continued to try to impress people with my newly found business, however struggled for 3 years and had nothing to show for it, monetarily anyways.
Fast forward to today, it’s a whole other story. I found a totally different approach to how I do business and instead of trying to impress people, I like to just give away my best stuff for nothing.
That’s right. Nada.
I eventually learned that my compensation would be in direct proportion to the amount of value that I provided the world around me. Once I “Got IT!”, it changed my world. I had people chasing me, rather then me chasing them.
I also learned that I didn’t have to be anyone but myself. Sure there were some rough edges I had to smooth out by reading and applying some knowledge I got out of a few GREAT books. I was and still am willing to change to become the person god intended and intends me to be.
Ok, enough of the use of “I” in this post. Let’s talk about YOU!
Where ever you are in life is EXACTLY where you are supposed to be. If your broke, no worries. If your well off, that’s great too. You have to understand that where ever you are and however you got there is all part of the journey, so embrace it.
Where a lot of people blow it is in thinking that they have the latest and greatest network marketing opportunity on the planet. There are literally thousands of great opportunities and it’s not one size fits ALL. People are not looking for opportunities, they are looking for LEADERS.
So what does that mean for you?
It means that until you become the leader that people are looking for, the people who could have been in your business will end up in a leaders business. Don’t worry though, you have plenty of time to become the leader you were meant to be.
