Sacrifice. No one likes to talk about it when they recruit you. But truth is, Network Marketing, like any endeavor worth doing, takes sacrifice.
These days, I’m free. I can schedule my life around pretty much anything, and live a dream life. But it wasn’t always that way. I missed some Sundays at church, dinners with friends, occasions with my family. But here’s the difference…
When I was in the restaurant business, I missed a lot more! Because when I was in that biz, I always worked nights and weekends. And always worked holidays. I can’t even begin to tell you how many Christmas, Thanksgiving, New Years and other holidays I was working in those years. But the correct answer is, “all of them.”
I’ve had team members miss major events because their child was having a one or two year birthday party. Really?
You’re telling me a one-year-old knows what that party even is, let alone would matter to them if you held it on Saturday or the following Wednesday?
No I’m not saying sacrifice all your kids birthdays, piano recitals, soccer matches and your wedding anniversary. But at the end of the day, it still goes back to sometimes giving up something good, to get something great. And the feel-good, instant gratification choice is seldom the right one for the big picture.
