A lot of us don’t go out and share our Network Marketing opportunity because we’re concerned about what people will think about us. Well, your parents already think you’re crazy. Your friends, siblings, and Facebook friends all think you’re crazy. So, what?
You know what the opposite of crazy is? Average. And one of the definitions of average is the highest degree of poor. So, do you want to be crazy or average? Average people don’t sit and take notes instead of going to casinos to gamble. You see, above average people invest in their self-development. At the end of the day, we have to embrace our craziness. And as we embrace it, we get better and better and better. But it’s all a process. It doesn’t happen overnight.
It can be hard to embrace this new life because we grew up with some strong beliefs. You see, you start off from the 1st grade all the way through 12th grade where you do something for 5 days a week, 8 hours a day, and you get a result. Then some of us go to college and that is another 4 years of doing something for 5 days a week, 8 hours a day, and getting a result. So, for 12 to 16 years we are conditioned to do something during a certain time frame and then get a result. And we wonder why the first thing we do after graduating is look for a job that pays us by the hour.
I grew up in Richmond, Virginia, surrounded by an environment where the belief was that we were all going to grow up to be “pharmaceutical sales” people. You become what you put yourself around, and so I had the opportunity to venture into that world. But I also had the opportunity to do the crazy thing and get out of that world with Network Marketing. The reality is when all the dust settles, we can either work for someone else’s dream or choose to focus on our own.
