“In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create distinctions out of their own minds and then believe them to be true.”
I use to tell myself that network marketing was not for me and that I would never get involved. But in the early stages of my journey, I felt courageous enough to test uncharted territories and join a company.
In order for you to succeed in network marketing, you have to spend countless number of hours working on yourself. The industry is built on BELIEVING. You can not market a product unless you first BELIEVE in it. You won’t find riches unless you can first BELIEVE that riches are possible for you.
The idea of being rich sounded great. The idea of being my own boss sounded even better! But over a period of time, I realized that my fears outweighed my desires to succeed at my new venture. My daughter was my WHY and yet still I just could not attract the level of monetary success I desired. I was fortunate to have mentors, willing to share their knowledge with me. But knowledge without application is only information.
I repelled what I wanted with my thinking. My poor self image led me to believe, that what I wanted was not possible for me. I never did let go of the subconscious belief that network marketing was not for me, and I did everything to prove that was so.
You are more than who they say you are!
When we were but children, many of us had the unfortunate pleasure of being told we would never amount to anything or any other combination of words that shaped the adults we became. The constant repetition of that “truth” became a reality for some and we did everything to prove it was so. We desire to do great things with our lives, but our greatness only manifested itself to the level of our belief. It would be easy to fight an outside enemy, but when the enemy is within, the only way to win the war is to keep working on changing the story we hold about ourselves. It will take a lot of soul searching, but you are worth the effort it takes to find the authentic you.
As parents, be very mindful of the stories you write in your children’s book. If you constantly see your children as being worthless and bad, that is who they will be. Perception is reality, and some people are not strong enough to change the perception they hold of them self. Don’t do to them or anyone else for that matter what others did to you.
What is the story you hold as truth about yourself. Is it empowering or disempowering?
“We are what we believe we are.”
