No I don't mean under the hood of a car, but under the hood of the 'Ultimate Business' - the one this whole Blog is about!
As we get through to momentum there will be a lot of casualties along the way.
People that thought they needed an extra income, but just were not prepared to do anything about it.
These people will be living with regret for the rest of their lives, thinking I wish I had actually taken it seriously, treated it like a real business.
Others that went through the pain and discomfort of extending their comfort zone through the 3 to 6 months of real slog, combating disappointment after disappointment, but more often than not finding excellent results amongst the poor results will succeed and build a massive business with like minded individuals of the same mindset and work ethic.
MORE OFTEN THAN NOT
key phrase to remember
That doesn’t mean it will be plain sailing!
It doesn’t mean that your averages will always be at the standard average level
You could have days or weeks with nothing
But those days or weeks will be purely and totally dependent on how well you work the numbers and track your activity
Some won't bother tracking activity as it’s too hard to count the catalogues or flyers or cards or posts that they do.
Some won’t bother because they actually aren’t doing anything or just not doing enough. Some will kid themselves that they are working as hard as they can, and try to convince others that it is just not working, it's too hard! These people will be working it in their spare time, but still actually have spare time to do the things they always did! This thing needs some sacrifices along the way.
The nasty thing that some of these will do is try to publicise their lack of results as the evidence that it does not work, and since there is 97% of these to listen to, it is easy to think that they actually do know what they are saying.
Even the TV commentators will tune into this as something to ridicule and joke about, and promote the idea that it is just one of those scams that are infecting the internet and propagating like wildfire.
This will reinforce the opinions of those people that think they tried this thing and really gave it all they could.
How much you sacrifice will determine how quickly or indeed whether you actually get to momentum. Some will 'try' it for weeks months even years, and focus on the areas that they feel comfortable with, and avoid all the parts that test their comfort zone too much. They had other things on more important at the time of the training. They would watch it later, they never do!
The results tell the whole story.
There's no hiding here
If you work the business properly you will get results, maybe small results at first but you will get results. The real measure is if you are not getting any results, it just means you need to do more! Its not rocket science. Its just numbers.
If you don’t you won’t
You can blame everything you like,
You can blame the products
You can blame the delivery service
You can blame the person that introduced you
You can blame everyone but yourself
But as they say when you point the finger of blame always remember there are always 3 pointing right back at you
So what are you going to do?
Well depending on whether you are a 3% er or aspire to be or not will decide you’re course of action.
The 97% will just stop communicating with the person that introduced them, and tell themselves they don't have time for that, and carry on doing what they always did, and having what they always had.
However these days it’s 3 strikes and you’re out!
There is no more pussy footing in this business.
What some people don’t realise is by bowing out of this thing at the time they did actually burns a bridge that can never be unburnt. Sometimes there is only one chance to join someone on a massive growth phase, miss that chance and it will never be the same later. All that will happen as we each move up the pay plan we get more and more picky about who we will accept into our inner circle. We don’t just want anyone to join anymore.
Effectively we will become the most effective Gatekeepers to ensure that only those that properly pre qualify and are actually deserving of our time will be allowed entry.
Now you may think that arrogant and you are entitled to your opinion. We will never knowingly be rude or objectionable on a Followup call, but what you have to know is that we that are building this financial wall, are battle weary, and have the scars of rejection from literally years of persistent, consistent activity with a never surrender mentality, that has hardened our approach to the lazy, the imagonna s, the people that think they can sell their way to success....... and the time is now to educate and resuscitate those that are of like mind to us. We can afford to be picky as we like you have the same 24 hours to time manage down to the minute.
Some will try to stop us there as we are in mid flight trying to explain the business, but these days we get in first and exclude these people before they get chance to infect us with their ‘puke set’ mentality.
Some people think we are offering them an opportunity to join when in fact we are still analysing whether we think they are a good fit into our business. They decline the application, when in fact there was no offer to them in the first place.
We are looking for like minded individuals and excluding those that don’t fit much quicker these days, much more efficiently.
It is NOT a game!
It’s a business with real products with real customers with a massive unending increasing demand not just for the products but for the people that distribute the products and more importantly for the people that lead coach support and mentor the people that do all these things.
This sleeping giant is well and truly awoken and there's no hiding place, sleeping is done.
This is the right time
The right team
The right company
The right business
The right opportunity
The right industry
Where do you see yourself in 3 to 6 months time
Now how about in 12 months time
Then let’s say 3 years time
And now what about 5 years time
Answer these questions for yourself and stick them up wherever you will see them every day on waking up.
Or don't and just keep doing what you have always done.
