Focus your energy today on helping one who will go where he or she wants to go.

“A leader takes people where they want to go.  A great leader takes people where they don’t necessarily want to go, but ought to be.” 

ROSALYNN CARTER

 

Early on our network marketing journey we must share information, sift and sort, until we find others who want to go where we do.  Over time, that leadership will duplicate. 

 

Challenge for today:

Call your teammates who want to…

Have a talk with yourself. Then have a lot more talks with yourself.

“Have a talk with yourself.  Then have a lot more talks with yourself. Convince number one that you can succeed and you will succeed.  If you don’t believe in you, why should anyone else?” 

TOM HOPKINS

 

Successful individuals remind themselves constantly that there is greatness inside them.  They review their specific written goals, the design for their lives, frequently each day.  They spend their time with others…

To solve big problems you have to be willing to do unpopular things

“To solve big problems you have to be willing to do unpopular things.” 

LOU HOLTZ

 

In network marketing, unpopular things that solve problems often involve constructive criticisms.  We must be willing to compassionately coach others in areas they can improve.  But we must also be willing to accept such criticisms ourselves.

 

Challenge for today:

Call 5 of your top leaders and…

If you try to prove this one wrong, you are just making more excuses!

“You can make excuses or you can make money, but you can’t make both.” 

PRESLEY SWAGERTY

 

The two will never go together.  And if you try to prove this one wrong, you are just making more excuses!

They are the living dead.

Where there is no vision, the people perish. 

PROVERBS 29:18

 

I have grown to love this verse.  I have also come to better understand it.  So many people have settled.  They have traded their vision and their dreams for a life of mediocrity.  They are the living dead.

 

Challenge for today:

Share your story today with 5 people you have never shared it with.  Share how you have…

The difference between success and failure, winning and losing, is tiny. It is so tiny in fact that it is hard to quantify.

A little more persistence, a little more effort, and what seemed hopeless failure may turn to glorious success.” 

ELBERT HUBBARD

 

The difference between success and failure, winning and losing, is tiny.  It is so tiny in fact that it is hard to quantify.

The world is more malleable than you think and it’s waiting for you to hammer it into shape

Two types of pain, the pain of discipline and the pain of regret

“I would rather regret the things I have done than the things I have not.” 

LUCILLE BALL

 

Amen!  There are two types of pain, the pain of discipline and the pain of regret.  The pain of discipline is temporary.  The pain of regret can last a lifetime.  I would agree with Ms. Ball that it is easier to forgive ourselves for having attempted and failed, than to have not attempted at…

There are no hopeless situations; there are only people who have grown hopeless about them

“There are no hopeless situations; there are only people who have grown hopeless about them.” 

CLARE BOOTHE LUCE



Many people enter network marketing when they have exhausted all other options for solving their problem.  For others, they are sick and tired of being sick and tired.  For both groups, network marketing offers a ray of hope, where little or no hope existed…

Rather than asking how to do something, ask how to do something for a million dollars.

“Rather than asking how to do something, ask how to do something for a million dollars.” 

ANONYMOUS



Attitudes like dreams should be big!  Not offensive mind you, but as big as we can muster.  If something is worth doing, it is worth doing in a major way.  After all, this life is not a dress rehearsal.  There are no “do overs.”  Make it count!

The very essence of leadership is its purpose.

“The very essence of leadership is its purpose. And the purpose of leadership is to accomplish a task. That is what leadership does–and what it does is more important than what it is or how it works.” 

COLONEL DANDRIDGE M. MALON



The task is freedom from financial worries and owning our time.  A leader never shows doubt, worry or fear.  A leader always shows single-minded focus for the task at…

Teams share the burden and divide the grief

“Teams share the burden and divide the grief.”

Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after the other.

Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after the other.”

Think Simple

""Think simple" as my old master used to say – meaning reduce the whole of its parts into the simplest terms, getting back to first principles.” 

-- FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT

 

One’s principles are, indeed, the foundation for success.  Principles like honesty, integrity, and a servant mentality.  When principles like these are integrated with a positive attitude, focus and a never quit work ethic, success is…

Managers do things right; leaders do the right things.

“Managers do things right; leaders do the right things.” 

PAT CROCE

 

As we begin to build a team an interesting phenomenon occurs.  We tend to get lost judging the team’s performance, when in fact, the focus on self is more important than ever.

It’s easy to do. Problem is, it’s just plain easier not to do.

“The key to motivation is motive.  It’s the why.  It’s the deeper “yes!” burning inside that makes it easier to say no to the less important.” 

  STEPHEN R. COVEY



Outside the challenge of overcoming rejection and working consistently and persistently over time, the actual physical actions necessary to build a network marketing business are easy.  It’s easy to pick up the phone.  It’s easy to…

Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference

“Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.”

You must be the first champion before you can lead a team of champions
