Network marketing is not the lottery. You must find a program that you can put your heart, soul and commitment in and then DO IT! How important is commitment? Let’s see what some people you will recognize have to say. ~ Anyone can dabble, but once you’ve made that commitment, your blood has that particular thing in it, and it’s very hard for people to stop you. ~ Bill Cosby ~ The achievement of your goal is assured the moment you commit yourself to it. ~ Mack R. Douglass ~ Desire is the key to motivation, but it’s determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal – a commitment to excellence – that will enable you to attain the success you seek. ~ Mario Andretti ~ He who is most slow in making a promise is the most faithful in performance of it. ~ Jean-Jacques Ro ~ Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible in your approach. ~ Tom Robbins NULL
~ There’s a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in doing something, you do it only when circumstances permit. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results. ~ Unkown ~ The relationship between commitment and doubt is by no means an antagonistic one. Commitment is healthiest when it is not without doubt but in spite of doubt. ~ Rollo May ~ Unless commitment is made, there are only promises and hopes; but no plans. ~ Peter F. Drucker ~ The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor. ~ Vincent Lombardi ~ There are only two options regarding commitment. You’re either in or out. There’s no such thing as a life in-between. ~ Pat Riley Commitment in network marketing today is very rare. I am all for getting off a dead horse.
What is discouraging to me is to see people jumping from company to company expecting the company to make them successful. YOU make you successful. Those with the right skill sets and mindsets make it long term network marketing.
It seems to me that network marketing companies have pulled a page from the Internet Marketers handbook, that does not cross over in network marketing. It kind of goes like this… a lot of pre-enrollment hype followed by a launch. Everyone jumps in and 90 days later they are off to the next pre-enrollment hype. Eventually you have to plant yourself firmly with a company and opportunity and then work on developing the skill sets and mind sets that will ultimately create success. I promise you, success will never happen long term without a firm commitment to personal growth and development. Network marketing is not the lottery. You must find a program that you can put your heart, soul and commitment in and then DO IT! If you can’t do that you are better off taking your $200 and investing it in lottery tickets instead of a distributor kit!
