What's Your WHY?
Hey fellow entrepreneurs, Frank Mayes here and I was wondering do you ever ask
yourself the question of "What's Motivating Me?" To expand on that question a
little bit, I mean what's driving you to keep plugging along in your online
business? Is it just a little extra money? Or is it total financial independence?
It was passed along to me about 10 years ago that I should take a "Personal
Inventory" of myself every year. In doing that, I would discover what my
"WHY" was. As a matter of fact, I was asked by my upline sponsor at the time
point blank, "Frank what is your Why? I'd never heard that question before.
My why? Whaddya mean what is my why?
After this gentleman had "broke" it down to me, it made so much sense. He said
that everyone in network marketing should be able to answer what their why is
in an instant. He said that's what will drive you when you go to one of your
buddies to share your exciting business opportunity with and they crucify you
so badly for being involved in MLM that you'll wanna quit. Many well meaning
friends & family have driven that new network marketer right out of the
industry because that person's "WHY" wasn't there or ingrained in their brain.
The Internet has made it a lot easier to avoid creating elephant tusks (thick
skin) to lug around when marketing your business, because now you can build a
humongous downline and NEVER meet any one in person.
Do you go out and look at things you want to possess some day? I initially
had a big problem with that. My sponsor called it, "Dream Building." My
initial thought process on dream building was, it's a waste of my time. Why in the
world would I want to torture myself and go out to the mall and look at things
I know I can't buy? I thought how depressing. But you know what? I changed
my mind when a guy I knew was broker than me at the time, came into the
business and dream build his butt off every weekend. He soon rose to the
level of executive in our company.
Guess what I started doing? Exactly...DREAMBUILDING!
I found out that you don't necessarily have to go to the mall or store just to
dreambuild. In developing your WHY, that's if you don't have one, you can
pick up magazines like the Robb Report or the Dupont Registry to read through.
I remember when I was first introduced to both magazines, I thought I
would never actually buy either one. Why? Too pricey. So I would venture out to Barnes &
Noble or Border's and make a beeline to the magazine racks just to browse
through those magazines. I would be there for hours. And when "my cup was
full" I would go home. Now I have a subscription to both.
So this announcement was just a reminder. Although we don't have to face the
rejection up close and personal of people turning down our opportunity, thank god
for the Internet, we still need that all important WHY to keep us marching on
towards whatever it is we're building our businesses for.
By the way, one of my Y's for 2017 is to build a small team of six-figure
earners with my primary business. The possibility of that happening is very
real and quite doable. One or two sales a month does it!
