As our emotional intelligence, and self-awareness grows we will tend to ask ourselves deeper and more intelligent questions.
In network marketing the real product is people. A well trained team member who will become a future leader and eventually a leader on your team. We are in the leadership development business.
Do people steal your energy or give you energy?
All of us either get energy from others or we don’t. Do people drain your energy or give you energy? Or do you take the easy path and just follow the energy of the herd?
Network Marketing is a people business; your long-term income is in direct proportion to the value you provide to the market that you serve.
You can have anything in life you want if you help enough other people get what they want.
This is wisdom of the age’s truth!
However there are dozens of business models that don’t require you to deal with people, so if people drain your energy, why would you choose network marketing and put yourself through such a daily energy drain?
WHAT IS THE ANSWER?
The truth is some people are blessed or cursed with the need to make a positive impact on the lives of other people, it is in their DNA. They can’t help it. There are those in the world that sincerely want to make positive impact. However as Jim Rohn also told us “never mistake sincerity with truth, because some people are sincerely wrong”.
All of us are who we are based upon what was programmed into our mind from birth to about 12 years old by our parents and other authority figures in our life. The culture or environment in which we were raised in.
Then the rest of our life we reinforce this program with our own self talk. Sometimes we need to stop and ask ourselves is the programming we were given as a child the programming we want to live the rest of our life with? If it is not we are the only one that can change it.
That is a difficult process, however I believe TRUTH never leaves us, it never goes away, no matter what we do … in our gut we know truth. In my opinion, rejecting truth creates many emotional and mental problems.
People try to remove truth and replace it with all kind of drugs and anti-social behavior.
Another seminar, course, network marketing opportunity or business model will not change programming only we can do that, and yes it can be done with 15 focused minutes a day as I explain in detail in my programming your mind for success program. The sad truth is most people will not take the time to implement this science base reprogramming process.
It may sound deep, but it is really quite simple.
Every time I think I have things figured out, I am reminded that life is a daring adventure or nothing all as Helen Keller told us.
If you listened to this podcast you know that I pay absolutely no attention to how long any session runs. It may be 15 minutes, it may be an hour and 15 minutes and if the podcast content is not providing you value, you should turn it off.
There is no doubt that we are living in a time of more uncertainty than any of us have ever seen. More people are living in a state of fear, frustration, aggravation, distrust, and uncertainty more than at anytime in our history, and for good reason. There are solid people that are starting to doubt themselves, and that is not good. To you I will say get regrounded in your faith, family, true friends and wisdom of the ages principles. Whatever reground may mean for you.
While I am thinking it about you there is a chance that some of you may have never sequentially, consciously, intentionally worked on programming your mind for success. If I am speaking to you, then please for you, not me, check out this website.
Honestly the only reason the network marketing profession is not exploding in my opinion is lack of leadership within the profession.
We are experiencing the unintended consequences for the decisions that have been made over the past 15 years from the good ole boys and girls network and corporate officers.
Network Marketing is the best passive income generating business model on the planet, but the world and ALL BUSINESS is getting ready to change over the next few years in ways that is very hard for most of us to even imagine.
METAVERSE if you have never heard that term before, remember you heard it hear first, and I will briefly talk more about that at the end of this article. Millionaires will be made quicker than ever because of the Metaverse.
I think if you are going to be in the people business the most important concepts that I have been talking about for years, and it is something that I think those in the personal development world have not picked up on as much as I wish they would is just a concept or idea I coined ……..
“As human beings we see things not as they are, BUT AS WE ARE”
It is easy for personal development teachers, network marketing teachers, or those teaching any business model to tell people what they need to be doing.
It is another thing all together to lead by example and do it yourself. So no wonder the masses are confused. But who should career minded network marketers be listening to?
Any of us can attend a dozen webinars this week or live zoom meetings in any business niche we choose and listen to a dozen different gurus in that niche tell us a dozen different things we should be doing. Most of the methods will probably work at some level, or have at some point in history, but does that mean you should be doing them now? It may, but what did you do with the info you received on the last 25 Zoom meetings you have attended?
So in my opinion the real questions you should be asking yourself is.
WHAT DO I REALLY WANT?
Sometimes what you really want and what you should be doing or may be called to do can be a conflict in your mine. But it there should never be a conflict in your soul.
#1 Who is this person and why should I be listening to them?
#2 Who have they personally taught these systems and what have their results been?
#3 The most important question I had to ask myself years ago was why are people not doing that which we are teaching them to do? They are clearly surrounded by others who are progressing and moving forward following the same systems.
It always comes down to the way their mind is programmed. You cannot expect people to do that which they are not capable of doing.
Until people re-program their mind, they can sit in every seminar and zoom meeting from now till the end of time and nothing is going to change.
If they don’t believe it can happen for them, they will not take action. As Henery Ford said ….
If you think you can or you think you can’t your right.
BECAUSE ………….. People see things not as they are ……….. BUT AS THEY ARE, and that includes you and me.
I know I am strange, I accept that, and I understand exactly how that happened. Some of it is DNA but most of that is because of intentional, conscious, daily mind programming and my spiritual beliefs.
I also know that I am programmed to play the game, I love the game, I am programmed for success, I get up every day knowing I am going to win the day, and that I have the developed the ability to take consistent action and work towards worthy dreams.
I don’t have to motivate myself, I don’t have to stop wasting time on stupid stuff and I no longer need to convince myself to take action. I don’t have to worry about getting my yard mowed or changing the oil in my car.
IF YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT SUCCESS, AND PROGRESSING AND MOVING FORWARD IN YOUR LIFE, HOW LONG SHOULD IT TAKE YOU TO GET THE GOOD STUFF FROM YOUR HEAD TO YOUR HEART AND MAKE IT PART OF WHO YOU ARE?
SO THE MAIN POINT I HOPE YOU WILL GET FROM YOUR HEAD TO YOU HEART AND REALLY THINK ABOUT IS AS HUMANS WE SEE THINGS NOT AS THEY ARE, BUT AS WE ARE.
I am going to share with you some random experiences from this week that I hope drive this point home, and then attempt to bring it together at the end of this article.
I had an interesting call this week with an old friend and former team member, who has experienced create financial success in his life. He has a very high level understanding of politics and we were talking about how encouraging what happened in Virginia last week was and how proud we were of the parents there that got in the face of school board officials for the crazy curriculum that was being used, and the negative programming their children were receiving.
We laughed about how all the talking heads where talking about dog whistles and racism was the reason Virginias elected their new mayor, ignoring the fact that Virginians elected their first woman of color Winsome Sears will become Virginia lieutenant governor. Are these people really that ignorant or do they just think everyone else is? Quality people want to support quality people and their background or race never enters their minds.
So the question is when these news reports and other talking heads ignore the facts that are right in front of them, what does that say about them? I believe it says, they see things not as they are, but as they are.
