It’s not really about your product or service. It’s about the dream.

cute-dreaming-quote-its-the-possibility-of-having-a-dream-come-true-that-makes-life-interesting

When people initially start a business, they base the product or service as the determining factor. While it is normal to base your decision on the product or service, it’s really not about your product or service. The majority of network marketing  companies are very good with exceptional products and services. As long as there is a market, you will have a profitable product and service.

When I first got started, I thought it was all about the product. I focused solely on getting people on the product hoping that they would become business partners after seeing how great my product made them feel. Don’t get me wrong, that technique still works. However, I quickly realized that no matter how “great” my product was, not everyone had an interest in it. Not to get off subject, but some people are very skeptical. The last thing you want to do is prove to a skeptic that your business works. They will prove to you that it doesn’t work by doing nothing.

As a marketer, I believe it’s important to not focus so much on the product or service but   focus on the dream.  It’s the dream that people want. They want to travel more and be home with their families. In addition, they want to spend their time without having a boss over their back(no offense to bosses). Network marketing gives you back your life so to speak. Most people don’t like their jobs nor do they like getting up early to go to them. It explains why so many people are grouchy in the morning.

In conclusion, it’s not so much about your product or your service. It’s about the dream. What would life be like if you were living your dream? What would it look like? Think about that for a moment. Make it as vivid as possible. When you assist other people to live their dream, you will live yours.

Don’t Get Distracted By Other Opportunities

image

When we get started in network marketing or affiliate marketing, we are on fire for the industry. We tell everyone we know about this great opportunity we just joined and how there is a ground floor opportunity for them if they sign up right now. Then after awhile, things begin to change. We no longer stay excited about our business program. Thoughts of quitting began to sink in. It’s time to join something else. Since we’re not making sales, it must be the company(not us). We start looking at the greener grass instead of getting off our a**. The problem is that we are not focused.

We read stories of how other people are crushing it and become envious. We all go through this in our networking careers. We join program after program and are still not making any money. Not even on our auto ship. Instead we become opportunity whores and don’t even know it. Don’t get distracted by other opportunities. Stay focused and build the one you are currently in. Do not allow other networkers discourage you from your MLM into theirs. I don’t care how great the compensation plan is.

If you can’t or won’t build your current business for whatever reason, you will have similar problems in any business you join. I’m just saying. A consistent work ethic is still required. It is also important to note that your product is not your product. Your product is people.

In conclusion, don’t get side tracked with different opportunities. Stay focused and build the one that you are currently in. Network marketing is a wonderful industry. So wonderful that it requires work. If another representative tries to smooth you over into his or her business, think about what why you got started in your company.

Raise The Bar

image

When it comes to succeeding in any endeavor, you must be willing to raise the bar. Success is 80% mental and 20% physical. When you add the 80 to the 20, you get 100 percent. Raising the bar means that there are no short cuts allowed. You no longer just maintain the standard, you seek to excel. A plateau occurs when stagnation sets in. As students of personal development and entrepreneurs of enterprises, we must be open to raising the bar. An eagle can not fly if it stays in the nest. Life is too valuable to settle for less. Anything less is mediocrity.

Raise the bar. You are better than you think. Do not allow the circumstances of life stop you from living a pre-ordained life of excellency. Laziness and procrastination are the enemies of success. They stop you from raising the bar. When you raise the bar, you raise your level of consciousness. Including your confidence. Leaders raise the bar while followers stay under it. You will start off a follower and raise the bar to leadership.

image

In conclusion, commit to raising the bar. You have greatness inside of you. Life begins on the outside of your comfort zone. As you leave your comfort zone, you’ll enter a new level. Write blog posts, do videos, do interviews. Success is an inside job. It requires you to raise the bar. Anything worth having is worth working for. I believe in motivation for elevation. You have to push yourself to excellence. You can follow the pack or lead the crowd. Followers meet the standard, leaders exceed it. Raise the bar.

Created To Be Creative

image

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. He created light and darkness.  In addition,God created day and night. He created animals, land and man. Apparently, God is the creator of all things seen and unseen. Since this is truth, I also believe that man was created to be creative. As humans, we are born with the ability to create. If you look at the creations of men from the start of civilization throughout industrialization, man was actually created a genius. As hard as that is to grasp for some folks, man was created perfect in every way.

Our school system focuses on knowledge in an effort to control what you put into your mind. But it’s your creative side that opens the door to freedom and opportunity. I feel that man is fulfilled when he uses his ability to design his life instead of following the crowd. Albert Einstein said imagination is greater than knowledge. Mr Einstein says knowledge is limited, but imagination is seen throughout the world. Obviously, you need knowledge. You have to know how to do things that pertain to daily living and so forth. That’s common sense. What I’m talking about is living by personal design. You can’t learn that in school. Imagination promotes independence in a dependent society.

In conclusion, you were created to be creative. You were also created to glorify God. In order to live a life of creativity, you must first change your mindset. You must decide that you are going to create. We spend our lives consuming but never producing. When you create, you change your fate. Economically speaking of course. So be creative and be a blessing.

Writing A Good Blog Takes Time

image

We learn in the blogging world that you must blog daily. I subscribe to some blogs and notice that some bloggers are blogging two or three times a day. While I believe that blogging frequently is important, I feel that quality blogging is better. As far as blogging goes, quality triumphs quantity everytime. Writing a good blog post takes time because you have to think about what your people in your niche would want to read.

As a blogger, you aspire to begin with the reader in mind. Blogging should not be a rush job. Some patience is needed. So writing a good blog takes time because good blogging is a process. We all want to write great blog posts. In order to be great, we have to first be good. We have to invest the time. Time is neccessary to get good results. So what constitutes a good blog? I believe a good blog is both inspirational and educational. The reader should walk away with a clear understanding of what the blog post is about and applicable knowledge.

Blogging is not easy. It is a challenge to come up with original content. However, your life experiences are original. You can start there. At heart, I am a writer. I love the idea of writing something that can inspire people to go after their dreams. I don’t blog just to blog. I blog to educate, inspire and motivate. I believe that this is one of the best ways to have an impact on individuals. In many cases, this is better than public education. I was a college student before so I have some understanding on education. I prefer to use it differently.

In closing, writing a blog takes time. You will get out of it what you put in. The world is waiting for your message. Inject your personality into your work. Good blogging is the pathway to becoming great.

Create Your Change Through MLM

create your change images

Many people are looking for a change. A change in a job or a change in a residential location. Change is something that we all need and want. A man would like to change his car every three five years. A woman would like to change her wardrobe as often as possible! Alternatives are important for human satisfaction and enjoyment. The reason why we need change is because the mind adapts to routine. Once that happens it’s time for a change.

I believe that the best way to get your change is through MLM. So many people are looking for something that will give them options in life. Yet, they continue to do the same thing day in and day out. Life should be lived with some adventure and diversity. MLM offers you that diversity. It opens the door of unlimited possibilities. A stagnant life. A stagnant life leads to a pitiful existence.

People settle for less instead of more. I believe they are afraid of success or refuse to commit to the process. In my opinion, the last chance for the common man is still MLM. The reason why is because your income is not based on what you do in your geographical area like your job for example. You can be home sleeping and someone from the other side of earth buys your products. KA-CHING! You just made money without doing any work.

In conclusion, you can create your change through MLM. The only thing stopping you is you. The home business industry is not just about the products. It’s about the dream. A dream deferred makes the heart sick. Although there are stigmas associated with Network marketing, we must personally work to eliminate them. You don’t have to chase friends and family. You don’t have to hang out at shopping malls, bothering people who are there to shop and have fun. As you create change for yourself, you will create change for others.
