Recently, my family and I celebrated the Fourth of July, America’s Independence Day, and before that Canada celebrate its Independence Day. These kinds of holidays are always fun and powerful reminders to each country’s citizens about the sacrifices made to gain independence and the freedoms they now cherish.
Even if you don’t live in Canada or the United States, as a Network Marketer, you can celebrate your Independence Day as well – the day you chose to be an entrepreneur.
Do You Remember What It Was Like?
I know you don’t need to be told the benefits of Network Marketing. After all, you’ve already decided to join. So, you don’t need to be reminded how Network Marketing can give you freedom from the time restraints of an 8 to 5 job. You already know that this profession gives you the flexibility to spend more time with your kids. You know that you no longer have to answer to a boss and are at constant risk of losing a job.
Or do you?
Sometimes as you’re going through the motions and trying to figure out what to do next in your business, you begin to feel frustrated. You struggle to reach that next rank or meet your goals. You struggle to even get started, and you forget the reasons why you signed up in the first place.
You forget how much you hated the office politics, how no matter how many hours you worked or family events you skipped, you are still passed over for a promotion. You forget how hard it was to find a job because you didn’t have the right kind of education. You forget how every month was a struggle to pay the bills.
But when Network Marketing came along, you were filled with hope – hope that there was a better way. So, you signed up and dove in. Suddenly, you were free of the office politics, the overtime, the poor pay, and the overdue bills. No longer were you restricted by the confines of what society thought you should do. You were free to be your own boss, set your own hours, spend time with your family, and reach for success with your own hard-work and determination.
Your Independence Day
It can be easy to forget what first gave you hope when you signed up for this profession. And when you forget, it’s easier to find the reasons to quit when things with your business get tough. So, take time to remember. Remember all of your struggles before Network Marketing; remember the reasons why you joined in the first place. Remember what you have gone through in order to gain your independence.
You might still be working towards gaining complete independence, or you might need a reminder of why you worked so hard to gain your independence. Either way, take time today to remember what you have sacrificed and the freedoms you now cherish.
Happy Independence Day!
