...my apologies for not posting lately. I've been a busy boy working my own network marketing/direct sales business! Yes, walking the talk!
If you're not familiar with a guy by the name of Jeff Olson then you probably will want to be after this post. He's authored an incredible book called The Slight Edge.
He was speaking on one of our company calls and he said this which I found interesting:
"Why is it in the beginning of your business, when you're the least knowledgeable, you're able to reach your 1st qualifying position however once you're there you're not able to move forward and double that production in an even shorter period of time even though now you're more knowledgeable than you were when you began?"
I can tell you it's generally because of 3 things in the beginning.
- You have a burning desire for a different outcome
- You're not comfortable and you're willing to take radical new action
- You don't tend to care what anyone thinks, you're soul thought is your different outcome so you take consistent and persistent action until your vision is accomplished
You see in the beginning you actually have more clarity on why you want a different outcome but you may be ignorant on how you're going to accomplish it but you go for it anyway.
You see network marketing as a vehicle to you to your destination but you may not know how to drive it. But you got in anyway, started it up, started driving then run into stuff.
But you didn't stop. (I know this because you're reading this right now)
The bottom line is when you're at a higher position in your business but you're stagnant, it's because you stopped doing what you were doing in the beginning when you were stupid but motivated!
Don't get off the elevator as one one of Jeff's Students coined the term, keep going to the top and don't stop off at any of the lower floors.
Go back to being stupid, in a good way that is :-)
