Our friends Bob and Anna Bassett of TogetherToTheTop.com tell us that there is just one thing that we get paid for in a successful MLM opportunity….working in our business selling product and bringing in new business partners. That is it…selling and promoting the opportunity.
Many of us spend far too much time creating our dream board, our list of goals, creating our business plan. We all have enthusiasm when we get started and positive attitudes but this is not what we get paid for. Yes we need all these….do not neglect their importance.
We need to say our positive affirmations, be involved in a mastermind group to further our personal development, but this is not enough and definitely not what the credit card companies, banks and grocery stores want from us when we have to pay our bills and purchase items.
Here is a funny way of looking at this from Bob and Anna Bassett:
We sent our dream board to Mastercard. It came back marked NOT LEGAL TENDER.
We sent American Express our list of goals and good intentions. They came back marked NOT LEGAL TENDER.
Visa sent back our brilliant business plan and carefully crafted calendar. Apparently they were NOT LEGAL TENDER.
Our mortgage company returned our enthusiasm and positive attitude as NOT LEGAL TENDER.
We sent the gas company three chapters of Think And Grow Rich, but they came back marked NOT LEGAL TENDER.
The electric company liked the pictures of us having fun and getting that award on the cruise, but sent them back anyway as NOT LEGAL TENDER.
At the grocery store checkout, we started to recite our affirmations and motivating self-talk. The cashier interrupted to let us know that they were, guess what, NOT LEGAL TENDER.
If this seems tedious and repetitious, stop and think about how much time you spend in activities that do not produce what these people want.
So what do these people want? Apparently they want MONEY!
Oh no! Where are we going to find money? Hey! How about from our network marketing business? And what does our business pay us for? You guessed it – SALES. And how are we going to make sales? Gather a few customers and gather a few reps who will gather a few customers.
That’s it. Your MLM does not pay you for goals or enthusiasm or dreams or plans or awards or attitude. It pays you for results. Personal development and planning are necessary, but they do not pay the bills.
You can muster all the motivation in the world and be the most positive person on the planet, but if you stammer and stutter because you do not know what to do or say to your prospect, you are up the creek without a paddle and just a highly motivated have-not.
