This includes your family members and friends who call your network marketing business a pyramid scheme and tell you all the reasons you can’t make any money even though they never offer any advice on how you can.
Earlier today I was reading an article from Forbes titled, “How Failure Taught Edison to Repeatedly Innovate“. In this short article, Edison is noted to have failed 10,000 times while working to invent the light bulb. However when asked Edison is quoted as stating, “I have not failed 10,000 times. I have not failed once. I have succeeded in proving that those 10,000 ways will not work. When I have eliminated the ways that will not work, I will find the way that will work.”
How many of you are willing to give up so quickly on your dreams because they did not immediately materialize? How many have quit because of a few failures? Thomas Edison had it right. It’s not failure but instead lessons of what doesn’t work. I challenge you to continue to prove what DOESN’T work until you find what DOES work!
Teach yourself how to think.
Most people never do this. They think they are thinking… but all they are doing is re-arranging the same ideas in their head.
Jim Rohn said it best: “Most people who think they have 20 years experience , don’t! They have 1 year of experience lived 19 times.”
The truth is: Most people will do almost anything to avoid thinking!
(Of course this can be great news for those of us who are Corporate Network Marketers!)
