In today’s post, I’m going to write about wanting something for nothing in MLM. This is an EPIC problem in our industry, and in the world in general. In America, so many folks want something for nothing. So many folks want to be wealthy, successful and happy in life, but they aren’t willing to put in the work it takes to get there.
They expect everything to be easy. And they don’t want to have to pay the price it takes to reach these big goals.
Maybe you know someone like that, maybe not?
I can’t tell you how many folks have quit my teams during the past 12 years because they weren’t making the big bucks. Yet, if you were to evaluate these folks closely, you would find that a HUGE majority of them did absolutely NOTHING (or very little) to grow their business. It’s as if they signed up and just expected the money to magically appear.
This lottery mentality has killed more dreams that I can think of!
Let me tell you something. Nothing in life works that way. If you want something, you have to set a goal, formulate a game plan, and get your butt to work! Nothing will replace hard work.
The world owes you nothing, but opportunity. And if you are given an opportunity, it’s up to you to do something with it!
Wanting something for nothing is a curse as I see it. The best part about working hard to achieve a goal is the person you become in the process. I cannot stress that enough.
Nothing in life worth accomplishing is easy or free. If it was, everyone would do it.
Is MLM hard? You bet! But every worthwhile achievement I can think of is hard. Finishing a marathon is hard. Staying married for 50+ years is hard. Building a profitable business of any kind is hard. Losing weight and keeping it off is hard.
Because these things are HARD to do, few people achieve it. Most people give up at the first sign of defeat. Most people can’t stick with something and see it through. It’s because of the instant gratification society that we live in.
Success in MLM won’t be easy.
It’s not your sponsor‘s job to motivate you every day and build a team for you.
You will face constant rejection.
You will face disappointments and setbacks.
You will take three steps forward and two steps back.
People will quit on you.
There will be days when you don’t feel like building your business.
All of these things are natural and are part of this business. But, I believe that if you want something bad enough you won’t let these petty things stop you.
And the greater the goal and greater the reward, the bigger the sacrifice you will have to make. Big goals require tons of hard work and a lasting commitment. Just remember that there is no such thing as something for nothing in MLM, or anything else in life.
