Network Marketers Success Cycle
The Keys to Success first starts in the MIND!!!! If everyone understood this concept, I could stop right here without going any further. However, I will try to explain for those who need more clarification. In order to be successful, you must conceive the thought/s in your mind and develop ideas or goals around that thought. For instance, let’s take something as simple as a safety pin.
The modern safety pin was the invention of Walter Hunt. The safety pin was invented while Walter Hunt was twisting a piece of wire, trying to think of something that would help him pay off a fifteen dollar debt. He sat twisting wire for three full hours and realized what he had created. He later sold his patent rights to the safety pin for four hundred dollars to the man that he owed the money to. Hunt claimed that it was designed to keep fingers safe from injury.
As a result of thinking, the conscious mind allows you to develop nothing into something. It allows you to create, re-invent, improve, develop, or design anything capable under the sun. All you have to do is start with your mind.
As we move through the Success Cycle the next Key a Network Marketer must have is a Reason Why. Any scientist that conducts research has a reason why the research is important. They also project the goal they would like to reach from that research. Your Reason Why & Goals go hand in hand. As one of my business associates, Mr. Brian Patterson, once stated, “Your Reason Why Has to Be Strong Enough To Make You Cry.” Your reason why can’t be because I want to earn a lot of money. Those who chase money will always chase money. Your reason could be to create Generational Wealth; Wealth that can be passed from Generation to Generation. The Bible states, “A Good Man leaves an Inheritance to his children’s children. “ Your Reason Why could be you have elderly parents and want to take care of them, Or a sick child that you need to stay home with versus going to a JOB that you really don’t like anyway. Whatever your Reason is WRITE IT DOWN!!! Don’t write it just once; place it where you can read it at least 3 times a day.
As with your Reason Why, you must set some Goals. These goals can be short term, long term, or both… The goals should be precise. It should include some of the following, a time that you would like to reach that goal, a dollar amount, a position you would like to achieve, the purpose that you must reach that goal, what will you do when you reach that goal. Again you must WRITE IT DOWN!!! I will add a side note when you write your goals write them as if you have already achieved that goal. I.E. “Today is Jul 4th 2013, my Independence Day… I am so happy and grateful that I was promoted to V.P. of Marketing. My income is now $150k/yr a goal I established 2yrs ago. I just moved into my new home and I and totally Debt Free. My children’s college tuition has been paid in full. They will not have to get student loans and damage their credit. I work only 20 hours a week and spend the rest with my family. Right now we are in our vacation home in Costa Rica. Everyone is here; it’s like a family reunion. Life is good.”
Remember, whatever the mind can conceive you can achieve.
But, In order to make those thoughts, reasons, and goals happen you have to must develop a PLAN. The plan should center on your goals. As a matter of fact, you can use your goals as an outline for your PLAN… The Plan will help you stay on track. It can be as simple as developing a schedule and following that schedule. The Plan will also keep you focused so if you have to take a break (because life happens) you can pick right back up.
Now it is time for the most crucial step. Take Action!!! Erase the words, I can’t, it’s impossible, it’s too hard, I will get to it someday (speaking to myself right here)… Someday leads to a place called never or I wished I had. To bring this point home I will tell you about something that happened to me because of the word someday. You may be able to relate to this. Have you ever had an idea that you knew you had to do but, you procrastinated on it? Then one day that same idea you had someone else (that you do not know) put it into action and they are now making money from your idea. I did, and I am reminded of it every day.
A few years ago, I saw a need for a Car Wash & an Oil Changing business near my new home. I picked out the location, looked into purchasing the land. I even researched a few franchise companies to see which one I could put in that location. However, I got side tracked with other things and attempted to create other streams of income, thinking I had time. All of a sudden, I saw construction crews breaking ground. I found out that someone else was placing the exact business I thought about doing in that exact location. I see it every day I leave my home. As a matter of fact, I even use it to service & wash my vehicles. The point is my procrastination allowed my dream to be stolen.
Whatever business, company, goal, idea, or reason why you have, if no action is taken, no success will be achieved. Repeat this over and over. If It Is To Be, It’s Up To Me!! You can pray, but Faith without works is dead. You can complain but, it will not solve your issues. You can be negative but, negative thoughts bring negative action. Think and Dream in the positive. Place Self Development high on your list. Most importantly, Do not give up too soon. Your Breakthrough is on the way..
