Where Are You Going?

Nov 19th 2010 at 7:21 PM

Where are you really going?

We seem to envy those who have achieved
what we desire. We envy those who are in shape.
We envy those who have built strong businesses
despite a faltering economy.

The key is not to envy or sulk but to
study and learn what makes these people
capable of achieving what we dream about.

Regardless of your past accomplishments or failures,
you are fully capable of achieving your dreams.

The issue is not what you can or cannot do today
but what you are capable of learning and applying in the future.

The bottom line is that you are the only person
who can cheat you out of success. And you can
only do this when you give up.

People who achieve their goals know that nothing
will be handed to them on a silver plate.

Some people realize this and take the
other actions needed to achieve results;
they make a lifestyle change.

Many people assume that when a diet product fails,
it’s the fault of the diet product. And so, like misguided children,
they move from one diet product to the next looking for a solution
that doesn’t exist.

Success in network marketing is no different.
People often look to a product or “system” to
solve all of their marketing problems and deliver success.

It pains me how many times I hear people blame others,
their leads, their products, their company, their upline,
for their failure.

But that’s human nature isn’t it?
We always blame ourselves last.
And that may be the real difference
between those who achieve their
dreams and goals and those who don’t.

Achievers take responsibility for their own actions.

By doing that, they know that they
are the ones that need to change.
If they feel unmotivated, they don’t
blame their upline, product or service.

Instead they figure out how to get motivated.
If they have trouble getting into action,
they learn how to schedule and prioritize.

They don’t make excuses.

If they fear talking to prospects,
they learn how prospects think,
what they expect and how to build rapport.

If they have trouble with technology they
read a book or take a class to overcome it.

Taking responsibility for your own
actions leaves you in control.

It empowers you to become
the master of your own destiny.

This doesn’t mean that systems
won’t fail or that products and services will always be marketable.
Those corrections can be made at any time.

But before you look outside yourself for the problem,
always look to yourself first.
What could you do differently,
what could you learn that could solve the problem.
Then go out and do it.

As you make changes in your life,
realize that change can be difficult.
No matter what changes you are trying to make,
research indicates that you must maintain positive
action for at least three to six months before reaching
anything close to stability – before it becomes a part of
“the new you.” Before stability, the danger always
exists of relapsing into old behaviors.

Relapse is often looked at as failure.
But this doesn’t have to be if you look
at it as a learning experience.

The mark of an achiever is to acknowledge
that you didn’t make it, figure out what you need to do
differently and go forward from there.

All possibilities are open to you.

The choice between success and failure is up to you.

Where are you going?

“The issue is not what you can or cannot do today
but what you are capable of learning and applying in the future.

The bottom line is that you are the only
person who can cheat you out of success.”
