I was speaking with a prospect the other night, great conversation, cool dude. We finally got around to talking about why I had called (hey, I work from home so I get in some human contact when/where I can) and he said “Oh, I think I tried that already, I got my kit and looked inside and just decided that I didn’t want to do it”.
Note bien kiddos: “There is no try, there is only do..or do not” this from the first dog whisperer, Yoda. Either do the thing or don’t do it, you’re in or you’re not – there’s no fence-sitting allowed when it comes to being an entrepreneur. And that applies double if you’re a network marketing entrepreneur you have to make a commitment to do whatever is necessary to be successful.
OK, so what if when you were born your parents said “we’ll try this parenting thing” What does that imply? That if it doesn’t work out they’ll drop you off at the hospital the way some parents dd (with kids as old as 17) in Nebraska recently? That they’ll give it a shot but your grandparents have to promise to take over if they screw up? That they’ll do it only as long as it’s fun, rewarding, and doesn’t take too much time away from what they really want to do? Or maybe just that they need an exit clause on your birth certificate?
You know of 100 people who start in a home based business, only 3 (yes THREE) will actually continue to do the business to the point where they are making a beyond comfortable living at it.
What happens to the other 97? Well, some quit because it’s just not for them (can’t get over the phone fear, their Mom said it was stupid, they didn’t have the time they thought they would have) which translates to “Just way harder than I expected” and others (ignoring the advice from their upline) throw too much money at their business and end up broke and disgusted. Then there are the business straddlers who are in 4 or 5 different businesses and never quite make it to the pinnacle of any one single business – because “trying” isn’t the same as “doing”.
Well I went on that rampage just to say – if you will stop “trying” to be in business for yourself and instead give proper time and effort to the business that you are in… well you just might be successful.
