So how mean can your relatives be? Mean. Real mean.
And depressing, negative, and small-minded.
That’s why my friend, Bob, joined network marketing. He was tired of socializing with relatives and friends who discussed and reviewed every negative story on their 24-hour news channel.
Bob wanted a new group of people to associate with. He looked for positive people who were moving ahead in their lives. Hey, if you have to live, why not live with positive and friendly people?
“I turned 18 and decided that I had learned enough.”
Sound like some of your friends?
Let me tell you about one of my friends, Alisa. She is different. For her, network marketing is all about self-development. Alisa spent 18 years of schooling memorizing facts and never once learned about the power and satisfaction of self-improvement. Now she starts every morning with 15 minutes of positive reading and her days are filled with positive experiences that she creates.
So many networkers have improved and changed their personal lives with the power of self-improvement. They read books, listen to CDs, and attend workshops while their high school classmates watch reruns of the television show, Friends. Guess who is getting more out of life?
“But my boss is a jerk, I am underpaid, my daycare ignores my children, and I hate the traffic going back and forth to work.”
I bet you have a friend or two who repeats this complaint every day. For them, network marketing provides enough income to stay at home with the children, and create a real family life.
You don’t have to earn a lot of money in network marketing to drastically change your life. So why don’t more people use network marketing to replace their jobs and create the lives they want? Well, they just don’t know. All of their network marketing friends are keeping it “top secret.” Hmmm, there is a lesson there for us.
“Okay, I’ve got the house, the car, the boat, the vacations, the lifestyle …”
Yes, some people take their network marketing business to the top level. That’s okay, too. I do know that when you earn more, you can give more. That should be a good enough reason for people to earn more than they can spend.
And network marketing provides that income and freedom for many people. That’s what makes network marketing attractive to people who desperately want to make a big change in their lives.
So what is right with network marketing?
We provide choices and opportunities for people. They can pick and choose what they want out of network marketing.
Remember this: “It’s not all about the money.”
Yes, the money is fine, and you can buy some happiness with money.
But life is wonderful if you enjoy what you are doing.
