This week Eric gives us some straight talk about choosing your hard, especially if you are an entrepreneur or want to become one. People tell him all the time, “building a business is hard. Network marketing is hard. Motivating myself is hard.” But what most people want to do, is they want to avoid “hard.” They want to avoid the things that are difficult, the things that are challenging them, the things that are pushing them.
As Eric points out, life doesn’t get easier. You just have to learn how to work through the hard until it becomes familiar to you. Eric suggests asking yourself these questions: . Is staying in a job that you hate, getting paid a fraction of what you’re worth, is that hard or easy? Is building a network marketing business and motivating yourself and employing yourself and developing your skills and dealing with your emotional ups and downs – is that hard or easy?
They’re both hard. And Eric’s first point is: “Choose your hard. You want to live with this hard, or this hard? Do you want to live with the regret of dealing with life at a fraction of your potential? Or do you want to have the satisfaction of going through and building something that you actually deserve?”
And the second point that Eric makes is, everything in life wasn’t always easy, at one point, it was hard. From learning to walk, read, ride a bike, it was all once very hard to you, but you learned, and now it is easy.
And the third point that Eric makes is, it is very difficult to get better and look good at the same time. What this means is, sometimes you have to just swallow your pride a little bit and be willing to be a novice again. The cool thing about network marketing is that it will give you the grace to be able to develop. It’ll give you a support system to be able to become more as you start to build your skills and you start to build your beliefs, you start to build your mindset. It’ll give you the space to be able to do it.
In conclusion, Eric leaves us with these words of wisdom, “Develop some fortitude and understand that the meaning that you apply to the struggle in your life will make a difference in how you live your dream. It’s worth it. I promise.”
