The Price: To succeed, you will have to face and conquer 4 major enemies.
This is a true story about Mark Yarnell, a minister in a small Texas town. He was heading for bankruptcy and just about to lose his home and car. He looked for a way out and discovered Network Marketing. Mark’s sponsor gave him the “promise” and also told him about the “price” to succeed. The 4 major enemies in your business are:
Enemy #1 Rejection
Mark approached 200 people to view a video, 80 told him they are not interested.
Enemy #2 Deception
Mark thought, “no problem, my sponsor warned me about that. I’ve still got 120 people that will watch” Guess what? 50 didn’t.
Enemy #3 Apathy
Mark thought, “no problem, my sponsor warned me about that. I’ve got 70 people who have watched the video.” Guess what? 57 said “not interested”
Enemy #4 Attrition
Undaunted Mark thought, “no problem, 13 people signed up.” Guess what? 12 of them dropped out of the business shortly thereafter.
Attrition left Mark with just one serious associate. But, to date, that single associate earns Mark over $50,000 per month.
Mark Yarnell’s story is not unique. Ask the person who introduced you to Isagenix – they have experienced all of the above.
Pick your goal and get into massive action. If you talk to enough people, you will make it!
Here’s the lesson: Your success is directly related to the degree to which you are willing to work to find others like yourself who are committed to succeed. Mark Yarnell’s odds were 1 out of 50. Would you be willing to go through 200 people to find 1 who will make you $50,000 per month? Or hear uncounted “No’s” to sign up 50 people to find a million dollar person? I know you will. It’s easier when you know the odds up front.
But here’s the catch” You have your own set of odds and you won’t know what they are until after you’ve succeeded. So if you’ve gone through 50 or 100 people and you haven’t found 1 serious person yet, you can either give up and assume the business doesn’t work or recognize that you are working through your own numbers.
Are you willing to find out what your own set of odds is? That means that you must pay the price for freedom. Remember that the numbers never fail you. Despite where you are in your skill level, your success is assured if you talk to enough people. And as your skill improves, so will your odds.
There is no such thing as luck in this industry. Winning big is a matter of being willing to pay the price. Are you?
Your future is in your hands! The choices which you make today will determine the course of your entire future.
May you have a successful future in all aspects of your life!
