Most people know the Golden Rule. I think it is pretty good advice. The Golden Rule basically says treat others the way you want to be treated. I think it’s better to take that rule one step further and treat others the way THEY want to be treated.
Therefore, the Golden Rule in Network Marketing is to treat others the way that they want to be treated. What does that really mean? I think people want to be treated with respect. They don’t want you to lie to them and make false promises. They don’t want you to hype them up. They want you to listen to them. They don’t want to be pressured. They don’t want you to abandon them, once you get them signed up! And they don’t want you to look down upon them or treat them bad because they aren’t interested in what you have to offer.
I think there are a lot of valuable lessons here that every network marketer could (and should) follow. Unfortunately, I think a lot of network marketers really mess this up!
We have so many amateurs in our industry doing stupid and bad things that really ruin it for everyone else. We have some people who lie, cheat and steal, just to get ahead in their business.
Yes, most people do the right thing. But one bad apple can ruin it for everyone else.
Starting today, I would encourage you to be a Network Marketing Professional.
I would encourage you to treat every prospect, team member, customer, and person who tells you NO as nice as you would treat your own mother or daughter.
That would be my Golden Rule in Network Marketing.
You see, karma is a you know what.
What goes around comes around. But even if it didn’t, wouldn’t be nice just to treat everyone with respect? Wouldn’t that make the world a nicer place?

Never let someone else make you say or do something you will regret later on down the road.
When you let them do that, they win!
Don’t let them win.
Never let your success make you someone you aren’t and never let your failures bring out the worst in you.
Eat, sleep and breathe the Golden Rule of Network Marketing and good things will happen to you.
