Before watching this video, write down the names of the people that you love.
So, many of us in today’s society are going to work every single day and allowing someone else to dictate our lives for at least 6-8 hours throughout that day. Regardless of any emergency, life event, or spontaneous occurrence that may take place, that boss will always stand between you and your personal freedom to do that which you want to do in life.

During this holiday season, just as most, I would like to give thanks for all I that I have been blessed with.
First, I give thanks to the Highest and All Mighty for allowing me to live the life that I live, at the capacity which I live it. I thank Him for my strength and intelligence to capitalize on the opportunities that He places before me, I thank Him for all the blessings He has planned for my future and definitely thank him for giving me my positive and optimistic outlook on life.
Second, I want to give thanks for my family which is currently three states away spending the holidays with my wife’s side. I’m thankful for the joy they bring me, the challenges they bring me and the opportunity to work hard at setting up and providing for a positive wonderful future for them.
Third, I give thanks for my parents who directly and indirectly instilled so many values in me that have developed me into who I am and continue to develop me into who I will become.
Lastly, I want to give thanks for all you friends and associates who have been and continue to be supportive and encouraging forces in my life’s endeavors; and at the same time I am thankful for all you negative people who do not believe in my dreams, who doubt my abilities, who do not support me even after you act as if and even saying that you will support me. I thank you for being a source of indirect motivation for me to become more than you could ever imagine.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Network marketing rookies often make poor decisions when it comes to who they invest their time and money in during the beginning phases of building their business. It has been said that a sensitive and kindhearted person person cannot survive in this line of business for long. I believe that in many respects that is true, but it’s not all bad though. We will get to that in a later entry.
Kindhearted people are often attributed to have a blue or sometimes yellow personality type, (depending of the chart you are using). A person with this personality type encompasses qualities such as sensitivity, being a people person, and being a caring team builder. In most lines of business you cannot successfully build your business when you have too many qualities that fall under this category.
You know of you bestow these qualities, and this article is for you. You are going to have the desperation to partner with as many people as possible as quickly as possible when you first enter this line of business. It does sound great and in many way it is great to partner with numerous people in a short period of time, but what are you sacrificing in order to make this happen.
Sacrifice is necessary for success in network marketing but it has to be the right kind of sacrifice and done at the right time. Many network marketing rookies allow their desperation to make them spend days and weeks and sometimes months begging friends and family to partner with them in their business. When one of these friends or family members is in the brink of partnering, the rep will usually do one thing or another; either front the person hundreds of dollars to bring them in at a high leadership level, or they will allow them in at the lowest level. After the person is in the business the rep will drain him/herself spending all of their time trying to ensure that this newly recruited person sees some sort of success so they won’t quit the business.
Well the person had no vested interest in being a partner and still has no desire or financial drive to make them do what’s necessary to succeed. They didn’t invest much of any money into this business so if they don’t see some big money coming their way soon they are bound to quit and tell everyone else that it doesn’t work. You sacrificed hundreds dollars in your own money and/or countless days and hours into this person that has quit the business and is telling everyone else not to partner with you either.
Friends and family can be great assets to your business if you bring them aboard the proper way, but using desperation will not work in your favor. It was once said by a wise man by the name of Jarrod Wilkins, “Your friends and family won’t start supporting you until strangers start celebrating you.”
Stay tuned to upcoming entries for the proper ways to utilize your friends and family in your network marketing business. Also please feel free to comment with any approval and/or disapproval to this blog entry.
