Enjoy the Process!
There's something that I have noticed in my years of Network Marketing and MLM... That is , most people that get involved want the money and huge downlines without going through the process. The process is the best part. It builds character and separates the weak from those that have what it takes to succeed. As mentioned in the last post, persistence is the most valuable attribute of a network marketing professional.
The process should be fun. We should be meeting new people, establishing long-lasting relationships and paving a way for those that have and will join you in your business. I am not saying that the process will always be filled with butterflies and rainbows... I am saying, enjoy it. Embrace it.
Embrace the process?
Yes, embrace the process! You must first walk through it to receive it so that you can appreciate it. Honestly, what have you ever received out of thin air that was worth anything?
I will wait...
Okay, so embrace the process on YOUR personal journey into network marketing success. Each day, we grow as long as we are coached. Even the best coaches, have coaches themselves. My mentor, who has almost 40 years in the network marketing industry, has a mentor that he consults with almost every day. He still embraces his journey, even though he has had and still does have uber amounts of success.
The process is about building solid, strong relationships with people of like mind. The process is about learning about who we are, and what we are willing to do to realize our dreams.This same process is about who you can help along the way, and teach them to do the same. It's duplication of down-right caring about other people enough to give them everything you have been given.
The process I have experienced, just today...
I connected with 4 very interesting people. They each have their own set of dreams. They do share a common dream, however. They all want to do something more with their lives than sit at a desk, work in a factory, or work for anyone else for that matter. Now, of course, there is nothing wrong with anyone that chooses to do this and enjoys it. Quite a few, however, have chosen a different path... and I am meeting them 1 at a time, all over the world.
I have shared some of my story with them, and their's with me. I have let them in, and they have let me in. The relationship process... that's the process. It's an amazing thing to show someone that you are genuinely interested in what they want and they feel that, even over the ethernet cables, coax cables and the thousands of other wires and connectors there between us.
That's up to what we choose to do with the short amount of time we have each day. We can whine about it being hard and give up. We can take small steps into overcoming a fear. We can reach out to someone that could use our help or services. We could seriously, make a difference in someone's life... and from there there are no limits to where the process can take us.
Don't waste another minute. Use them all, enjoy the process! Be the best network marketing professional you can be!
