After a few days of a mental recharge, I found myself somehow allowing some negative thoughts to share space with my focus and through much mind training... they are now on their way to where they belong... in the abyss.
My main focus is to find network marketers that are trying to figure things out on their own, connect with them, and help mentor them with the assistance of my personal mentor that has been so instrumental in my growth in so many ways.
I had taken a couple of days away from my efforts and so "stinkin thinkin" tried to make its way in, as I pointed out earlier. So, I reached out to my mentor and told him what was going on. Soon after, and I didn't even have to physically hear from him, I heard a voice in my head give me the direction I needed to take to get the results I was looking for. I dug into my "toolbox" and went to work...
Not even 30 minutes passed from that point and I had found a person that I could tell really needed our help. Through persistence, I was able to get my head back on straight and remember why I started doing this in the first place. It's not about ME! It's about helping others that have a strong desire to succeed but have no mentor to guide them through the hardest part of network marketing... the beginning!
"Wherever men and women accumulate great riches, you may be sure the first acquired persistence" - Napoleon Hill "Think and Grow Rich"
Don't get riches confused with just money. Riches includes the pure joy of helping someone reach their goals by giving them what has been given to you. Riches includes having relationships that will last through the years despite the changing times. Riches is knowing that you are surrounded with positive light because you have given positive light.
I strongly recommend reading Chapter 9 of Think and Grow Rich - Persistence many times over, especially when you are at the brink of giving up on your goals. It will light a new fire under you and propel you to the next step in your journey.
I will leave you with this -
There has never been a success story that has not had it's dark days. Success is an iceberg. Many only see the best of times in a success story, they do not see the trials and setbacks. They do not see the criticism of others or the abundant rejection. So, stay true to your purpose and know that each time that you experience some form of resistance, it is merely a test. A test in which persistence is your passing grade.
