Last week I told you the story of meeting up with the dragon lady and how I actually look forward to these challenges. What we’re really talking about here is posture.
Because posture comes from belief. From knowing. And knowing what you know.
It’s conviction. So how do you get that? I can only tell you where mine comes from…
My skeptical prospect has doubts. I have knowledge. He thinks he’s afraid of failure. I think he’s probably more afraid of success. He thinks people are trying to cheat him, lie to him, and take advantage of him. I think people are inherently good and would genuinely like to help others if they could.
He’s going to go to bed knowing it can’t work. I’m going to bed knowing it’s already worked. I was the guy who worked for minimum wage, washing plates. He can’t convince me this doesn’t work any more than he can convince me that Paris Hilton should win the Nobel Peace prize.
He’s going to go to bed broke, frazzled and frustrated. I’m going to bed rich, peaceful and serene.
Now I know this Diamond lifestyle wasn’t handed to me. I earned it. Worked hard for it. Helped a lot of people to get it. But that is why I deserve it. And I know he can deserve it too, if he’s willing to do the work and pay the price I did.
My conviction is stronger than his doubts, my knowledge greater than his theories, my beliefs more powerful than his fears. And here’s the clincher…
I don’t need him to get it.
I don’t have to sponsor him; he doesn’t have to see it. He can flat out reject me and everything I offer him, but that’s on him, not me.
I really want him to get this. I really hope he does. But if he’s not ready, not at that consciousness yet, I’m still going to love him and let him grow. I don’t need his approval to validate what I do.
And neither do you…
It’s not your job to sponsor everybody. It’s only your job to offer it to them. Then it’s up to them.
When you get to the point where you know you deserve it, when you know you’re doing what it takes, and paying the price, you’ll have the same posture, the same belief, the same conviction I have. When that happens, you’ll sponsor everyone you’re supposed to. If they are ambitious, coachable and willing to work, you’ll enroll them. All of them.
You’ll develop a conviction so strong that everyone that is supposed to be in your business will join your business. Until then, I can only share mine with you, and let you borrow some.
But do me a favor. Please…
Stop playing small. Stop buying into the herd mentality. Stop listening to people who choose to live lives of mediocrity.
Dare to dream. Step forward with faith. Stand up and lead.
If you’re still not there yet, get your ass to Mega-MLM with me. Don’t tell me about your money issues, visa problems, babysitter difficulties, pet sitting challenges, or that you promised Bubba to help him move that weekend.
Those are all valid excuses, but they’re not going to get you where you want to be. So stop looking for them. Decide you’re going to be there, and the universe will bend to you will.
No one ever has a money problem. Only an idea problem. And everything else is just a belief problem. And the only person that can change that is you.
You are not alone. There are others that believe as you do. And we will support you. I believe in this profession. I know what it did for me. I believe in you. And I know what it can do for you. Now we just need you to believe in you.
