No matter who you are, what your life experiences have been, what you currently know, or whom you currently know, you CAN succeed in network marketing.
When I first discovered the industry I felt like I had finally found ‘my way’ of creating financial independence and freedom. But still, I had no idea how I was going to do it. I was very young, I had no prior experience in the business, I had no circle of influence, and I was broke. However, I had a burning desire and knew (based on other success stories) that average people, like myself, could make it.
Network marketing is the great equalizer in many ways. There are no guarantees- you start in the same position as everyone else. When you become a rep- no one ask you for a college degree, or even a resume! There are no prejudices towards anyone. You must simply learn a few basic strategies and concepts, repeat them over and over, and have a strong willingness to work hard.
It is easy to get caught in the trap of feeling like others are better than you. I remember looking at top earners on stage and thinking; if I had their story, this would be easy. But guess what; at one time, they didn’t even have their story!
Give Yourself Some Credit
People are never as great as you perceive them to be in your mind, we all have our trials and tribulations. My dad told me at a very young age,
“Jake, you are twice as smart as you give yourself credit for, and other people are not half as smart as you give them credit to be.”
Perhaps that was a loving father’s way of boosting my self-confidence, but it mattered to me. I believed it to be true and it has served me well.
So, I suggest to you- YOU are twice as smart as you give yourself credit to be, and other people are not half as smart as you give them credit to be.
Remember; quit looking around and wishing for something you don’t currently have. Realize that YOU are enough, just the way you are!
Wishing you all the success you will allow yourself to have!
