Life is full of ups and downs, achievements and disappointments, successes and failures, joys and sadness. In life there are no easy paths that lead to a perfect life where all is bliss and happiness all the time. Along the path of life there are obstacles you will encounter and decisions to be made. Frustrated network marketer – when the hill grows into a mountain what will you do?
There will be times when life delivers us a new challenge and the hill becomes a mountain. It will be up to us to decide whether we accept the challenge or walk away. How we handle a challenge will determine whether we will be successful or fail. The key is in your decision. The choice is yours alone. If a path of failure and disappointment is chosen there is no one to blame but you.
I know a network marketer who has been up to the challenge a number of years now. You see the network marketing company she is with is not in her country but to her that does not matter. Yes there are challenges but because it is what she wanted to do so she chose the path of success. The company was a perfect fit for her so she accepted the challenges that she knew would be difficult but the road to success was in her view. To her the decision that if she could not build her business in her country she would build it in countries that the network company was in was a decision she HAD to make. She is successful now and in the near future she will have achieved her goals and be living her dreams. She is an inspiration to those that know her and will be so to many many more.
Recently two network companies merged and with the merger both companies have gained expertise that they were lacking and in fact the new entity has increased in strength and expertise. A move that was beneficial to both companies and the distributors. New products introduced which means a learning experience for those that have not been introduced to these products before and different selling techniques. One of the unfortunate turns of events is that the company is not in all the countries that the merging company was in creating new challenges for some of the distributors in those countries. But for those that seek to achieve their dreams and goals they will find a way around or over the mountain that has obstructed their path.
How we deal with these mountains will determine whether we need to take a different path or continue on the path we are on and face the new challenge. We need to remember that we are business people and need to make decisions based on a business point of view and not on an emotional one. Emotions tend to cloud your vision and give way to negative emotions if the situation does not follow the path we had set. Stephen R. Covey in his book “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective people” came upon a revelation and quoted it in his book. “There is a gap or space between stimuli and response”. The gap is the time you will have to make a decision to respond to the stimuli and the outcome will depend upon your decision. Depending what the decision is, you will need to use the right criteria to make your decision and in business basing your decision upon an emotional response will lead down the path of negativity when in reality the situation you are cast into may be the best situation for you.
Frustrated Network Marketer–When The Hill Grows into that mountain that seems too high what will you do? What will you do in that gap between stimuli and response? I can only encourage you to make your decision based upon the right criteria and what is best for you.
