It’s a Marathon And Not A Sprint!
I was listening to one of my favorite marketing mentors in the car earlier today and he reminded me of a very important fact about business.
It applies doubly so to online business.
What this mentor said was that success is a marathon and not
I know we all know this, but sometimes it’s important to remember it and to really take it to heart in all that we do. . . especially in today’s fast paced world.
We want everything here and now.
Instant gratification is the name of the game.
And so that is how thing are sold to us . . . Especially on the Internet.
We get bombarded by messages that tell use that this or that is the instant solution to whatever problem we need to solve.
The reason why is . . . it WORKS!
It gets us to take action and buy.
This is good in the sense that we can use this to our advantage from a selling perspective, but when buying we have to realize that no matter what we’re being presented with their will be WORK involved.
I’ve bought and tried just about anything and everything online that promises to help me make money quickly and guess what?
For the most part it’s good information, but none of it has lead to instant wealth in my life.
While the experiences gained while trying all these different things did give me a hard earned education that has taught me how to run a business online and it has put money in my pocket.
It was actually the experience over time along with the information that turned into revenue.
If you treat your business like a sprint and you jump into every business opportunity because you think that if you just get in early and push hard that money will fall in your lap you’ll fail every single time.
Rather real success online or with network marketing comes from consistent and persistent focused effort aimed towards your ONE goal! (It’s different for each of us.)
For instance . . .
Internet network marketing is my chosen niche for a reason.
I love the speed of results that can be created in an online world, but I equally love the security and financial freedom that a strong and thriving network marketing organization affords.
I know that if I can master both internet and network marketing that I will be able to grow a large thriving network marketing organization FASTER than if I do it solely offline.
But . . .
Even at this I know that it’s a marathon and not a sprint.
My team and I have worked consistently for the past 12 or so months and now we’ve got over 3400 people as part of our group.
These numbers are the type of numbers that only a true network marketing master could boast of creating in the offline world in the time frame stated, but if anything I want you to realize that I had NO prior network marketing success. . .
I just put the pieces of the puzzle together and then helped others do the same.
If I can do this so can you.
I’m just a guy with ONE goal, a plan of action, and team full of great people who all understand that network marketing is a business of delayed gratification.
The big money comes in years 3 to 5 and we know this.
I’ve made a commitment to myself and my team to stick with my ONE company for at least that length of time working consistently and persistently towards my goal.
So stop and ask yourself right now . . .
Are you committed enough to your business and your future that you would devote the next 3 to 5 years of your life to it to see big results?
Network marketing can give you more freedom in your life than you can ever imagine if you just approach it as a marathon and not a sprint. The dream is true and it’s there if you want it.
You have to give your time and your hearts true passion to your business and your organization if you want this to happen.
Rome was not built in a day and neither will your network marketing financially free lifestyle no matter what THEY say!
