Winners Never Cheat and Cheaters Never Win...Bull#$%!
Okay, the headline was simply meant to get your attention. I do,
however, have an interesting theory. You hear whispers in the wind of
this person or that person who wins big and..."Has to Be Cheating" or
"Taking advantage of someone" and my personal favorite..."Yeah
but...anything including luck." The real fact of the matter is most
people who win big, and do so on a regular basis, simply understand the
rules of the game as a whole far better than most.
Every winner in any industry is an absolute Master of their craft. Think of any outstanding basketball player you can think of. Chances are that person is a professional basketball player. I want you to think of that person as a middle school basketball player. At some point between the beginning and landing them as a Pro, this person has come to understand ALL facets of the game. It starts from developing one skill after another. All "good" young players can shoot. Well, at the next level they can also pass. Even further still, all players at the next level can shoot, pass and play defense...etc until the professional level.
As someone gets better at their craft, the more effective they become with producing results. Trust me, nothing ever comes without giving something. In our little example the athlete gave time, practice and focus to continue to become a Master. There is no difference between the winning athlete, entrepreneur or architect. The traits and habits of a winner don't differ, the rules of the game are simply different.
Let's look at the Direct Sales industry or building your Online Business. Again, I want you to think of an individual in your market or your company who is just killin' it. You hear about them all the time, they are always on stage of your regional meetings...you know who they are! I promise you that person has a VERY good understanding of the ENTIRE process of winning in their industry. Please note I said industry. I don't simply mean your particular MLM business of selling lotions and potions, I mean the entire Direct Sales industry. You could put this person in ANY company and they would be a Top Producer. This is not because this person cheats, takes advantage of anyone, or has anything to do with luck. They are Masters of some basic fundamentals of EACH facet of the game, such as:
Sales & Marketing System
The list can keep going and going but I think you see my point.
It's time for you to take a step back and evaluate where you are inside your business. Are you utilizing everything that is offered? Do you learn as much as you can about everything you can? Then, the next time one of these Masters comes to you with an offer, you'll understand exactly what it's going to take. Is the end result possible? Of course it is, but you have to understand the rules of the game to win. Go out there and continue to learn. Listen to your Mentors and become the best all around player in the Game! I hope this helps you on your Journey. Until next time, Happy Marketing!
