I’m writing this post on Malaysian Airlines flight 124, traveling from Sydney, Australia to Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. We’re in a double decker 747, which is 231 feet 10 inches long and 63 feet 8 inches high. In addition to the 359 people we’re carrying (including the guy behind me who’s at least 40 pounds overweight), we’re carrying 57, 285 gallons of fuel.
We’re flying into a head wind of 107 mph, yet we’re traveling at 525 mph. Perhaps more interesting to note – as all of you pilots know – you take off and land, into the wind.
There’s a lesson in all that for Network Marketers don’t you think?
P.S. Get to a newsstand and pick up a copy of this month’s INC magazine. It has a feature titled, The New Guard of Direct Selling, which paints a positive picture of our business. Be sure and look for the article on Firing Your Best Friend also, because it offers some lessons on prosperity and I am one of the experts giving advice.
