Wouldn't it be great if life was super easy and that there was never, ever any problem at all? Some would say YES to that, and others might consider it a bit boring if life were truly a “cake walk” all the time.
The reality is that life can be very difficult at times. There are lots of seasons we all go through…some are sunny and bright, and others dark and dreary.
Your business, your network marketing business is no different. We're always faced with changing times, seasons that bring different weather, and we've got to be able to weather ALL seasons that come our way.
Here's something that I know to be true in network marketing. We have an amazing opportunity in front of us that can be life changing if we act. The mechanics that exist in this profession, don't exist everywhere.
Where else can you go and build something where you get paid over and over again from the work that you did one time? In almost every occupation I'm aware of, you have to work to get paid.
Now…don't get me wrong here. I'm not saying you don't have to work to get paid in network marketing. You do. In fact…you have to work very, very hard. But…and here's the BIG BUT, you can continue to get paid over and over and over again once you put in the work. However, you know that already, don't you?
That's part of the good news. The bad news is that you'll always be faced with storms, with negativity, and people who simply don't get it.
How you respond and react to the negative circumstances and situations in your life are defining moments for most people.
One of my ALL-TIME favorite quotes covers it…
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
We have to take the good with the bad.
Roll with the punches.
Get knocked off and get back up.
Keep fighting the good fight.
You get the picture. It never ends. Are you up for it?
