We have all heard it before, network marketing doesn't work!! The sad truth is this that, is true, net WORK marketing does not work. Work to many of us, who do a lot of it and only end up with a little bit left after it's all said and done hate the word work, and quite frankly we hate working in general. So of course someone will join, get the wrong idea, and quit because they think working is going to get them no where the same way as their job is getting them no where now.....or lack there of.
So let's change the name. When people are engaged with the Stock Market, they don't say, "I'm working the Stock Market", they say, "I'm playing the stock market". The distinction in these two words is very powerful. When you go into something like it's a game, your goal is to win. When you are a playing a game, you are having fun with the intention of winning. We don't just stop playing our game and walk off, we stay to the very end. We take every hop on the game board, we touch every base on the baseball field, we shoot every available basket on the basketball court, and we play with energy and excitement.
So let's start playing the net market. Find a business that excites you, one that you think will do really well. It doesn't matter if anyone else thinks your business is not the best, you must believe it is the best so that you can "invest" the proper amount of time into your business.
Understand the compensation plan and play your compensation plan. What is required of you in order to win. How many hurdles are their, and how high are they? When you play the game the way the compensation plan says to play it, and you play all the way to the end you will have fun. The sad thing is there are so many people in network marketing who probably could not even tell you what the ranking order is and how you get there, plus any additional bonus opportunities.
Just remember the one who reads the game board instructions, usually wins the game.
I'm the baby, the baby of the house
I'm small, happy and quite like a mouse (when I'm not crying)
I can't do much just yet
but for a baby I'm quite set
I have a few toys to chew and hold
Snuggely pajamas for when it's cold
My feet stay clean, because I never have to walk
So people kiss them and talk baby talk
I love cuddling with my Mama
with her I'm safe, there is no drama
and sometimes she kisses me right on the head
and snuggles me all night instead of sending me to bed
Even when she's sleepy and rubbing her eyes
she sits right by my side, it's no surprise
because she loves me, she loves me, she loves me so much
I can tell by her loving touch
When sleeping for me is not in site
she keeps me company all through the night
and soon enough I'm over stocked with security
Happily I fall asleep thanks to her loves purity
My mind, my mind, my cluttered mind. come to find out after 33 years of life, that my mind is the way it is because I am bipolar. I'm also a creative genius, but I have no money to show for it because I never finish anything, which brings me to this next idea. This book will be a short story book for adults. I'm not doing it in search of some new genre or trend, I'm doing it because, I already know I will get two or three pages into these "adult themed books" and then forget all about it, as if I never had the idea in the first place. See for me it's much easier to just write short stories. Actually that's this book exactly, my life has prepared me for everything. It's like my world has been a jumbled ball of experiments, but I never stuck around for the end result. Now I can be around for the end result because I believe I finally found the missing element.
I just had one of those epiphany things I have like all the time. See recently I applied for a really great job. I was ready to go back to work because my kids are in school, and I can go back to the mainstream job market if I wanted to. WRONG, apparently when you take off time to be a stay-at-mom you get punished because of the big fat hole in your resume, and trying to fill it in with network marketing opportunities doesn't really hold much wait to the "employed" people of America. I love the possibilities that network marketing offer, but it didn't dawn on me the power of that possibility until just a little while ago.
I was publishing an article for a web site I contribute to, about a new network marketing business opportunity. Then I thought about the design, especially for this specific business because it's so parallel to raising a family. As a Network Marketer, you are usually looking for someone to partner with, and the goal is to have about 3 or 5 offspring sort of speak. In the industry of direct marketing this actually means recruits. You raise the recruits to grow and do the exact same thing. Everyone in the direct marketing family, (organization) tells everyone they know about something really good, just like how families do with other families, when they offer referrals like dentist, car repair shops, hair dressers and any other service provider you can name. In this case I was publishing an article about parents earning money from home referring their friends and family to switch to clean, green energy at set rates, with one simple phone call. No money exchanging hands, no auto ships, just real benefits for referring a great way to protect our environment.
That's when it dawned on me, the employment market punishes moms who chose to stay home with their kids, by not letting them back into the fields they once worked. Momentis, a direct sales company is doing the exact opposite. Momentis allows us to use our experience raising a family to raise a direct sales business. Once our organization is up to spead, we are rewarded with impressive income. These are the types of companies that changed and enhance lives for the better.
I can't believe I put myself through unnecessary grief because I let fear tamper with my expansion recently. I've been presented with two grand opportunities lately, but because I did not have faith in myself for a brief moment in time I stunted my chances of succeeding over some bull.
I applied for a job in Corporate America. I will be honest, the idea of doing what I use to before I started my family and earn the money I use to make and then some thrilled me to the bone. It was an opportunity for me to be lazy. What I mean by lazy is, I was going to be able to do a set amount of work all the time, and make an x amount of income, consistently without having to put forth any more effort than absolutely necessary. So yes, basically I was being lazy because the opportunities I have in my possession right now are sure fire money makers if I actually do the work it takes to make the money happen.
It's basically a duplicating process, but the process takes time, effort and diligent persistence. I just have not been in the right frame of mind to take on that type of responsibility. As easy as the responsibility is, I just don't feel like doing it, yet at the exact same time I want like having the financial benefit that the opportunities offer.
I think this is why I always purchase network marketing opportunities and not actually work the business. I bought the dream most times, but I never lived the life because I didn't do the work. The simple duplicated work. So simple, I'm sure many of you can relate because you too have wanted to do something, and did not do what was required in order to win big. You bought the dream, but you didn't live the life.
That's like buying a beautiful home, and never living in it. It's like ordering a gourmet dinner, but never taking one bite. You may think it's different because with a home or gourmet dinner you can actually see it, and with network marketing it's a "risk". It's only a risk if you don't work the business. Just like you have to lift your hand from your plate to your mouth to enjoy the taste of the gourmet food, we must take action when dealing with any life enhancing opportunities.
So why have I done just that? Why have I bought the dream and not used it? You know what I mean, like buying a bicycle and never riding it, why would I do that.? Why would any of us do that, if we all actually worked these businesses we would be very well off financially.
I found our recently why this is, make sure you read the following blog and learn exactly why we are sabotoging our good fortunes.
Most of us grow up, not realizing the moment in which we were in fact, full fledged grown ups. Of course there were moments as a teenager when we felt we knew it all, but now we know we did not. Then there was the first cell phone, first car and WATCH OUT NOW the first apartment. That is if we were ever really dumb enough to move out of our parents home, but then something happened. Our pseudo status of adult hood, turned into a real adulthood.
You know bill payments that come printed on red or pink paper. Marriage, divorce, kids, shot records. These are just a few reminders that we have in fact reached adulthood. Now we are finally in the adult stage. This is the stage where sitting on the toilet is a great escape from the kids, at least until they swing open the door. Showers are for day dreaming, until the little ones are able to reach and open the shower door.
Bubble baths are just about non existent, because what grown up has time for bubbles? Why is it we feel that we no longer have time for bubbles, coloring books and toys? What happen to the active imagination we were born with?
When did we trade our soda bottles for beer bottles and who made up the phrase acquired taste?
Is it that adults have learned to give up on and settle for better? Better jobs, better friends, better relationships? how about trade better for better and use our natural gifts to make it so.
Life for us is like a coloring book, full of blank coloring pages. Who said we had to stay in the lines?. Oh yeah, grown ups who said the Teddy Bear must be brown, or the sun had to be yellow or yeah GROWN UPS. Who told us that our imaginary friends were not real? The friend who others could not see was a Guardian Source of Light, who only we as children could see.
Who killed Imagination?
Some people don’t’ like the word, “if”. They think what "if" type of questions are ridiculous. These people who disagree with the the “what if” conversations, will never get the best piece of cake at the birthday party. Deep down they have always wanted the corner piece, one of the only four chances to enjoy two sides of frosting. They wish for it, but they do not get into the “what if” frame of mind.
People with a “what if” personality reep the pleasures of fascinating about possibilities. When you understand the concept of , “what if” in it’s positive form, you have the advantage of experiencing what the actual idea really feels like, even before it happens, and this makes the possibility of it happening that much more possible.
Play along for a moment, What if I told you, WAIT better yet, imagine in this moment that I am offering you a chance to win one million dollars all cash today. In order to win the million dollars, I will lay thousands of cards face down over the floor. You get a chance to draw that winning card, and if you don’t choose the winning card, we will give you another chance and we will keep giving you these chances until you win.
The only catch is that you only get one chance per hour.
Keep in mind, you are reassured that the the million dollar card is in this pile just as sure as the sun and moon hang in the sky and do not fall out of the sky and have been floating in open space for millions of year. I can not tell you where the card is located. You can come to me for guidance but the choice is always yours. In this example the the Million dollar card is equivalent to pure happiness, overall wellbeing, a joyful spirit and a healthy body. In this example, where we are giving you unlimited chances to win the big prize, you only get 24 chances a day.
Okay now open your eyes and look at me. You have been given that same opportunity, but let’s look at how we play the game. If we sleep 8 hours a day, as we should we are down to 16 chances to win that million dollar lifestyle. In this life example the choosing of the cards simply means how we live our lives. The choices that we make. This is hard for us, because we are human. We waste so many chances a day to have a million dollar life style. The health, wellbeing, financial freedom, enthusiasm and spiritual enlightenment. We may be experiencing some of it but not all . Having all of our physical and spiritual needs met is a million dollar lifestyle.
The most important strategy in looking for the million dollar lifestyle, is not flipping over the same cards, over and over again, yet this is what we do in life every day.
Let’s look at this. Wake up 7am (for example)
· Use the restroom
· Jump into the shower.
· Sit down and eat breakfast
· Watch the morning news.
The necessary daily routines are fine, but when we allow ourselves to feel, in this action we are simply allowing our spirit the joy of living a million dollar lifestyle. What if instead of simply doing the basics of life, we allow the spirt to feel what that feels like, by just spending a moment in that zone. As we wash your face, brush your teeth, you don’t need to think about what’s wrong. While enjoying a healthy breakfast why not skip bringing the spirit down with harmful news designed to keep us hooked just enough with their “teasers’, and instead focus on how the food is nourishing our bodies, while giving praise not just at the beginning of the meal, but with each bite truly enjoying the blessing of life, that we are experiencing in that moment. Doesn’t this sound much better than focusing on the crap happening around us?
This is what we call playing our cards right, The only way to win is to stay in the game, because you are given chance after chance because the possibilities are endless.
Let’s say that a friend calls, and wants to talk about how her husband did her wroing, or about a mutual friend she can’t stand. Here is our chance to play your card of the hour. Get off the phone with that person infecting you with their negative energy. A better use of your card for that hour is to find something to do. Plant a flower, read a book, write something, sing. Do what ever feels good to you. Maybe even when your mind wonders in these moments you feel that million dollar life style.
Let’s look at how a phone call can mess up your chances to win big. Lisa calls Trish….”Guirl whatcha doin”?” “ OMG why did I just leave from over James house and that bitch Carmen was pullin in the drive way, I can’t stand her”
Even just listening to this example, puts us in an uncomfortable state of mind, however this is what we have been taught. Thall shall not gossip, is not to protect the one you are gossiping about, it’s to protect you from feeling that empty feeling from doing it. Dishing the scoop may seem like fun, but once it’s been done the fun never last for long.
Here is the thing, most times when we gossip, it’s not going to get back to the person we were talking mess about. Knowing this we think everything is fine with it and no one is going to get hurt. Not only does creating nasty energy affect you, it also hurts your chances of winning that million dollar lifes style, because gossiping jacks up your emotional receiver.
We have friends who are dealing with their crap, and we let them dump that crap on us because we want to be a “good friend” WRONG. Then after they dump all there crap we tell them to give it to God. We are so nosey and hungry for pain that we will sit through someone elses reinacted pain.
Now lets’ go a little bit deeper, so that we really understand the Million Dollar Life Style.
Your friend who is experiencing issues beyond her control because when she had the chance to **get off the phone with a negative friend, **and spent her time complaining and **envying others, **constantly worried and afraid, **anxious and impatient, in this example "she" is setting the stage for the scene in her life, and although we have no idea of what that scene looks like, we do know for a fact that the neither does our example, but she can bet what ever it is she won’t have any control over it.
This is what we do. WE waste all of our chances, every day. Now “if” it was a real game of million dollar lifestyle, we would not stop choosing our cards by the hour for as long as it takes, but when it’s our life we wsate so many chances, eliminating our chances of winning sooner rather than later.
If plants take in sunlight and turn it into food, why are not more of us taking in the light of our Divine Creator and turning that light into spiritual food? How tall, proud, vibrant and beautiful would we be if we did? Now we understand why plants always gear toward the light.
We have been blessed with site. Site that lends clues that overtime reveal a divine message. I strongly agree one must have a strong spirit, a spirit that has experienced certain levels of spiritual trials.
The trials I am referring to are the similar test that Jesus went through. I use Jesus as an example, not an Idol. Jesus grew up, the only difference between him and us or should I say two differences is that he knew who he was as a child growing up. He knew his potential and was ready to use it. The second difference is that he applies and uses his potential and we don't because if we did, the power would probably put life on other planets.
We have no fear as babies, we go after every and anything we want, we have not been poisoned by negativity and our eyes are pure,wide and willing to learn and take on new challenges.
My epiphany today is that I too have lived on this earth approximately 30+ years. I have witnessed so many signs from the Divine. We have gone through the experiences and we have been spiritually assaulted, by people we thought cared about us and we to are being reborn.
Not too long ago I was at an event and met some great women. That particular day many forms of confirmation came my way. The Divine was speaking to me and I was listening just like I am listening to him now.
There are no excuses for failure. Once you have hit the same age of a man who was crucified, engaged trying experiences like he had.
Not so much so that he was crucified, because people don't always acknowledge that but what they most likely will acknowledge is that Jesus Christ changed the game and changed the way people thought, in fact people realized how empowered they were, but of course if you seemed to too empowered ill appointed leaders would eventually have a problem with that and end visual independence.
This is the society that we have become. We are not practicing our God Given power and we are spiritually crucifying the ones who do. For most of us by the time we hit 30, the spiritual crucifiction is so bad, many find themselves in a rut for the rest of their lives, giving money to false profits, and living a chaotic, and uneventful life.
Recently a woman I know reminded me that this is what profits do, we write out our vision.
We must continue to stay in communication with the Divine. God is both mother earth and the Universe. The universe and mother earth, birth us into existence. We are to live our lives and be spiritually in tuned to the messages being sent to us by God. By our mid 30s if it has taken us this long, we can now be reborn.
We are reborn when we can identify and accept that we have been spiritually crucified. Allow the power of awareness, to rebirth us. Now take the visions and manifest them, by using the power within to pull from the Divine Light.
Constant contact just like Jesus had with our Divine Creator is what we want. We want to be in constant contact with the divine. Don't get it confused, we do what Jesus did, so we can grow closer to the Divine and be capable of accomplishing our visions.
One day I was writing in my journal, and Addison my six year old at the time asked me to tie his shoes. i told him I would not tie his shoe any more because he just turned six years old and it was time for him to learn by now.
This is when it dawned on me that we in due time, I too finally understand our Divine Creators, internal instructions and it occurs at different times in our lives, as if we mature in our listening.
I walked him through the process without physically helping him, and he was able to effectively apply what I was teaching him. It has come time for me to effectively apply what the Divine Creator has taught me.
The Divine and I are like Siamese twins. The problem is we are not always willing to move in the same direction. When we do move in the same direction it's amazing.
