Are You Planting, Cultivating and Harvesting the Right Seed for MLM Success?
Perhaps this story will help us all realize that in order to harvest success; seeds for success have to be sown.
A man wanted to make an investment. An idea struck him: “Why don’t I plant a small mango sapling and enjoy the benefits when it grows into a big tree?” So he went to the market, bought a small sapling and took it home. To the pride of his family, he planted it in the center of his garden.
He read everything about raising a mango tree. He got up early every morning, for he was determined to supply the sapling with all the necessary nutrients. He watered it, he supplied it with manure, and he took good care of its leaves by removing those that withered. He made sure the sapling received ample care.
Many times he sat and admired the beauty of the growing tree while dreaming about the tasty mangoes that the tree would bear. His mind was always filled with the wish to taste the first fruit of the tree.
Then one day he noticed a small bud, which in a couple of days bloomed into a beautiful flower. Now he could hardly wait for the fruit so he started to increase his supply of nutrients and care. Then one day the tree let out its first product – a small green fruit. The man was so happy.
He waited for a few more weeks till the fruit grew in size. The day came when he decided to taste the first fruit of the tree. He climbed the tree, plucked the fruit and then came his disappointment. The fruit that he plucked from the tree was not like what he expected. It was hard, big and round. He was baffled. He was sad.
Seeing this, his neighbours came and asked him what happened. He told them that the fruit from his tree was not what he wanted. When the neighbours heard this, they did not know whether to laugh or console him for what he planted years ago was a guava sapling.
If success in life and business is the goal, than sowing, cultivating and harvesting the RIGHT seed is crucial. Success will never be what we get if we first of all do not plant in the right field, sow the right seed for what we expect to harvest, and then harvest.
Divide and conquer does not work in MLM. You have to choose just one opportunity and work it. Don’t let your focus become drawn away by other “stuff”; other opportunities. I know that many opportunities are being promoted as multiple streams of income. A lot of time and money is wasted on dividing focus in these business opportunities.
Now if you are in just one opportunity and are not finding success even after sowing success seeds, your lack of success in not your fault. It may just be a lack of training, education and skills or mentoring.
All those who have succeeded in business will tell you that they had a mentor to coach them and to help them focus their desire. They found a coach that could mentor them to be champions in their field of focus such as swimming. They didn’t find a coach to help them who coached football.
So decide to sow and cultivate the right seed, of which you expect to reap rewards, then harvest…and keep your focus even when other seeds are enticing and distracting.
Would it be OK if we helped you do the same? If you are coachable you will find success by following in the footprints of the most successful leaders who make sure that no one is left to struggle alone.
