|We Can Shift
the Entire Industry!

have yet to see a successful network marketer who was not a consistent
student of personal growth.
“sell the dream.” Some see that as hype, some as offering hope. I believe
it is about coaching people to be their personal best.
The majority are
lured in by scarcity, the need for money, or by things they don’t want—such
as a boss. For many the first phase of personal growth in this business
happens when they realize that now they are the boss—who can they blame
Some try to blame
events, circumstances, the upline or the company. Others blame themselves.
But none of these gets any productive results—and here is where some eye-opening
coaching and growth work begin.
Many never move
past this phase. Even if they make some money, they do not really experience
I take delight
in the moment people make that shift from external to internal, from scarcity
to abundance—from blame to intention and responsibility. From fear, to
really understand the meaning of the famous networking adage, “Your business
will only grow as much as you do.” They understand that they—and only they—have
designed their lives and have everything they need to paint and live their
picture, right this very second! They understand and take responsibility
for their life, their results, their intention and their vision.
That's the kind
of “work” it takes to enjoy their abundance. It’s like magic. You can literally
watch people make the shift. Money starts to flow, they have energy, people
suddenly are drawn to them. The world takes notice!
There is nothing
like watching people make this shift! It is much bigger then network marketing,
it affects their family, their lives and communities. What a wonderful
thing to be able to model for their children and grandchildren.
What happens without
that shift? When people come in with scarcity and continue to focus on
it, they leave with even more. And we’re surprised when we notice that
network marketing still has a negative image?
To me, the goal
in network marketing is to have every person we meet, whether or not they
actually join, whether or not they stay, take away something new and wonderful
in their lives because of the experience.
Pursuing that kind
of goal can shift the entire industry. The better we become at empowering
people to empower themselves, the faster we can create wonderful shifts
in the world. Even if we all only teach just two!
growth got to do with it? Everything!
