The Journey of a Network Marketer - Part 5 | Persistence

Day 11 - And How Persistence showed up in a major way!

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.

Network Marketing and MLM Sponsoring vs Recruiting - Part 4 | Why I Chose to Be a Sponsor

Why I chose to be a Network Marketing Sponsor and Mentor
It's been a few days since I have posted on here, and with some good reason. I have been spending some quality time reaching out to my team, working with them and helping them move into their dreams. 

I have also been talking with some brilliant prospects and clients that have shared their stories with me. I heard their pain when they were telling me about how they had been taken advantage of by greedy companies and sponsors, I mean recruiters with huge egos. I have heard stories of having to pay hundreds of dollars to join companies and spend even more for training and materials. That did it... I already knew I was a mentor and sponsor. Just hearing these stories brought out my true passion.

I'm just one person, and my mission is to find and help as many people that I can that have been through the bad side of MLM and Network Marketing. When I first started mentoring and sponsoring, I was a bit focused on myself. Makes sen…

The Journey of a Network Marketer - Part 6 | The Definition of a Mentor

Day 12 - The Paradigm Shift into being a Real Mentor

To be quite honest with you, there was a few days that I did not really see myself as a mentor. Then, it was in the middle of writing a post on what I received from reading the chapter on persistence in "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill, that it clicked. Some would call it an "Aha" moment. I call it one of the most excited states of vibration my body has ever encountered!

I had been questioning my credibility as a mentor based on what I believed other people that knew me, thought of me. Oh man, how silly is that. As mentioned in the chapter, many fail to persist based on their fear of criticism. This is a fear that lives deeply embedded in our habits that it can be difficult to remove. In my case, it was instantly removed. I came to the reality that I DO NOT CARE what other people think of me and it feels good!

So, being a mentor... what is it?

In my own experience, a mentor is someone that will guide you, teach…

Is Success in 10 Steps by Michael Dlouhy for real? | My Personal Experience

Is Success in 10 Steps by Michael Dlouhy for real? Before I just go and say, heck yeah! It's for real! Let me tell you how I found the book.

I found myself at a point in my life that I had all but given up on network marketing and mlm. I had been in and out for the better part of 15 years, and the last company I was working with exploded right when I was starting to get it figured out. I was done with it. I was over the lies, the big hype, the constant push to sign up more distributors and just plain done with the whole industry, to be honest.

This brings us to the not-so distant past. I was sitting at my desk at work, just thinking about how I could get away from the corporate life and work for myself. I didn't want another MLM. I didn't want to get into some illegal pyramid scheme or some money game ponzi scheme that would ultimately be shut down by the FTC. 

I was wracking my brain. Then I thought of something, as if the idea just appeared... I needed a mentor. One that ha…
