How to Avoid Optional Failure

 If You Fail, is it by Choice? We hear about this “high failure” rate in Network failMarketing all the time but in reality, most people who “failed” did so by their own choosing. It seems that the term “failed” in Network Marketing is used very frequently to describe those that fell pray to the system. Maybe we should try and define the term “fail” when relative to Network Marketing. The dictionary says that Fail is: “to be unsuccessful in achieving one’s goal” or “neglect to do something”. This is a pretty good definition of “failing” because it is usually the “neglect to do something” that keeps people from Success in Network Marketing. This term is usually used when someone didn’t do the work, choosing again to watch TV instead of working their business.

So, is failure a choice? Yes and No, yes because to often the failure is a result of just not trying or not willing to do the things that need to be done to feed your business. No, because sometimes people never get the training on what to do and how to do it to have a Successful Networking career. We see people joining all the time with great intention because they just want something different in life than their soul sucking J.O.B.. But just because you are unhappy at work and want to quit everyday doesn’t always transfer into a true commitment to succeed in business. Sometimes the same people that didn’t want to do any work at their job are also Not willing to work at their Home Based Business. They join with great intention and big dreams only to realize that there is work involved to be successful so they just return to their comfort zone and go back to watching TV instead. We know,  because we have been there too. The TV and one’s comfort zone are much easier than actually learning how to run a business from home.

Not that it’s Rocket Science or anything but you do have to learn new skills and put together a game plan that will get your business up and running to build an organization that pays Big Money for your efforts. We personally know people in this industry that make a million dollars per year with their Network Marketing business. This is life changing income that practically anyone can achieve if they are just willing to Commit, Educate and ACT. The only way you could ever make this type of income outside of Network Marketing is either illegal or takes a massive college education and years to create, plus you would be hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt. And after all that, all you did was create a high paying J.O.B. that most people don’t enjoy anyway.

If you want to get ahead and live a Dream Life then you have to be willing to learn new skills and most importantly ACT upon them. We call it the “Four Year Career” because you can find the right mentor, learn some new skills and create Massive Action that can launch Your Networking career in such a short time. Here is why most people “fail” at their Networking business. They treat their business like a game a social event or lottery instead of like a Serious Business. They just show up when it’s convenient, or they feel like it, instead of working their daily task that will get their business going. They only do what is easy or comfortable instead of doing all the things that Have to be done to see Success. Many use motivational approaches like “I hope” or “I’ll try” instead of “I Will” or “I AM” going to make my business a Success. Or, a real killer, they just want to “do it” their way instead of the way their mentor teaches that has proven results over and over. Again, too often this “failure” was self imposed.

To fail in Network Marketing is much easier than to Succeed because anyone can SOS-button“choose” to do what is necessary or they can choose not to do it today or tomorrow or when ever the case. But the opposite is also true, Anyone can Succeed in Network Marketing if only they will choose to step out of their comfort zones and get busy on the task at hand. Don’t fall for shinny objects and promises of overnight riches because these are just games and schemes that will take your hard earned cash and leave you in a pool of regret and failure. The best way to succeed is to find the right mentor, someone you can relate to and who will lead you down a path to starting your business up and moving it forward toward Success. Commit to your goals, Educate Yourself on the process and Take Massive Action that moves your business forward.

Most people fail because they don’t have a big enough “Why”. The first thing you need to do is figure out “why” you are going to succeed and not accept excuses for failure. You need to really understand your why and define it down to the smallest details. What is it that is going to keep you going when things get difficult or your comfort zone cries out for your old self? If your “why” isn’t big enough then your old self will creep back in and take over telling you lies like, “it don’t work” or “I can’t do it”. Make a vision board or post pictures all around your work space that reflect this “reason” why you are going to be successful, no excuses accepted. Without a “Why”, and a really big one, you are destine to fail and miss out on that Dream Life you want so bad.

battle_for_a_cure_proof_4Here is our “Why”. We have been involved with children fighting cancer for the last 10 years. No we don’t have a child with cancer but God led us into this situation to help these brave fighters and their families fight this horrible disease. We formed a legal 501 c3 and became a non profit called Battle for a Cure Foundation. We work to help support these brave fighters in the battle of a lifetime through the dark journey of cancer. We deliver Hope Boxes, we support families with needs in the hospital, we hold several big events for these families throughout the year and we do Lots of great work to help these families out. We Love what we do and want to do more. We are a non profit and so we rely on donations from individuals and businesses to support our cause and it’s a constant struggle to keep funds available to do this great work. Our “Why” is to support Battle for a Cure and fund this great organization and all the great work we are blessed to do. You can learn more about Battle for a Cure by visiting our site here or check us out on Facebook here. This is a BIG WHY and it keeps us going and will not allow us to fail because we have so much at stake. What is Your Big Why? Maybe it’s a new house or a sports car, maybe it’s to support your family or church that needs help. But whatever it is Define It so you know why you are going to Succeed, no excuses accepted.

Failure really is an option. You can choose to work hard and do the things that have to be done to Succeed OR you can choose to let your old self win again and let your TV and comfort zone steal your Dreams, it’s Your Choice. Failure is never permanent or fatal so if you have failed before, learn from it and get back up to fight again. The only time you really fail is when you accept defeat and refuse to fight another day. Failure only wins if You let it.

I Fell into the Trap

As we go through life we sometimes let our mind dwell on ttraphings that we really have No control of. We fall into the trap of letting our own mind drift off into worries and strife that we couldn’t change if we wanted to. There is an old saying; “It’s all in your head”, well that is certainly a True statement.

Too often we give time and thought to worries and ideas that really have no effect on our daily life and yet we let our mind spend hours and hours dwelling on them and processing our assessment of these situations. Telling our selves that “if only it were different” and “that’s not what I would do” or “he/she really needs to change” and such. We fall into the trap of worrying about stuff we can’t control.

PoliticsPolitics is a Great example of this. We all fall for the hype and daily stories of he said, she said politics, the news of the day and all the nonsense of what the media portrays as important. Don’t get me wrong, there is some serious stuff going on in the world today, but I can’t change it. I can cast a vote and hope for the best but I can’t change what is going on in the politics of Washington. I, and I mean I, fall into this trap all the time. I read way too much news and get all uptight and wound up over stuff I can not change or have any control of. Why not spend that time on stuff that really matters in my life today?

Sometimes we spend too much time worrying about tomorrow that we forget to “LIVE” today. Spend your time being Grateful for what you have instead of unhappy about what you don’t have. Don’t fall into the trap of wasted energy worrying about how you wish things were instead of being so Thankful for what you have in your life that really matters. It’s your mind, Control it! Take control of your thoughts and change the way your mind spends it’s time and you can become the person you truly want to be.”It’s all in your mind”, make sure it’s positive and productive not negative and destructive.

Change your thoughts and you change your life. Stop spending so much time on things you have no control over and start living in today. What can you do Today that will make a difference tomorrow? It really is Your choice and You have control over your thoughts and the importance you give to different situations. It only matters as much as you are willing to let it matter. Remove negative thoughts and even negative people from your daily routine and you will see a Big difference in how you view life.your time

We all fall into the trap but only you can find your way out. Positive thoughts attract positive actions. Don’t let your mind trap you into being negative or even worse, hateful. Nothing good comes from hate. Stand guard at the door of your mind!

We try real hard to surround ourselves with some of the most Positive and Entrepreneurial minded people we can find. We lift each other up and give a helping hand to those who at least try to succeed in life. Be Positive Today! We don’t care where you have been but we sure care about where you are Now and where you want to go from here. Take control of your thoughts and you can change your life.

The Lighthouse v Tug Boat Parable

 

A Lighthouse can help save boats.lighthouse
A Tug Boat can help save boats.

But both do so in a Dramatically different way!

The Tug Boat works feverishly to push and pull, hook and drag, always striving to help, or save a boat in need. In the process it works itself ragged trying to get itself and another safely to shore. Always working hard, 24 hours a day and always someone else to save.

The Lighthouse stands tall and steady shinning it’s light for all to see. It does not boast or yell about it’s glory, it just Shines a beaming ray of light to show others the way. There is no pushing or pulling, no need to drag anyone ashore, it just Shines so others can find their way. Lighthouses don’t go running all over an island looking for boats to save; they just stand there Shinning the way.

tug boatThe Tug boat reminds me of the desperate Networker that is always pushing or tugging trying to get anyone to view their opportunity. They use hype and falsehood to promote hoping someone, anyone will just climb in the boat with them. Yelling about how great they and their opportunity are and yet they can not figure out why they just can’t seem to get going.

The Lighthouse just stands tall, showing the way knowing that so many are looking for the light. They do not have to yell or run around boasting about their one and only opportunity, they just Shine. They keep the hope going and show people the way to Success. They are steadfast in their work and don’t let the opinion of others decide their fate, They just Shine!

There is a Simple way for you to find Success if that is what you are truly looking for. You don’t have to become a cheesy salesman always yelling about your opportunity. Find the right Lighthouse and follow the path. You need someone that has the right opportunity, the tools and training to get you started, and most importantly the support to keep you going when you get lost in the fog. Then you can stand proud knowing that there are others looking for Your light as well. Position yourself as the Lighthouse and you won’t have to work like the Tug boat.shine
