Stars and Role Players, Sports and Network Marketing

When it comes to network marketing, sports analogies work very well. I want to focus our attention on Stars and Role players in sports.  I’m a HUGE basketball fan and this term is used often to describe the players on a team. Your star players are usually going to do the big stuff; score the points, make the Big plays in the game – get most of the playing time…. meanwhile the Role players do everything else; some would call it the little stuff.

The thing is, if you’re part of a team that is seeking to win a championship, the little stuff always matters. So while it’s important to have talented Star players who can do the big stuff; you still need that guy who’s going to give his all to play Defense, and get those rebounds to give his team another shot at the other end.

Many of us know about the Chicago Bulls who won 72 games; an NBA best – and we all know that team featured two of the NBA’s 50 greatest – Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen. This team also had quite a few key Role players, who helped push them to become one of the best NBA teams of all time, at least, on paper.

One of those role players, was Dennis Rodman.

During his playing days He developed a reputation for his off the court antics, and even some of the things he did on the court; including his crazy hairstyles. However, he was known on the court as a tenacious defender and a league leading rebounder.

So when he teamed up with Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen, He didn’t have to do it all; he just had to do the little things – Jordan and Pippen would do the rest.  We’d be re-missed to leave out important role players like B.J. Armstrong and Steve Kerr, who simply had to make sure they didn’t turn the ball over; and knock down open 3’s when they got them.

As great as the star players were, they do not win 72 games, or several championships, without the contributions of the role players doing the little things.

I’m a big Laker fan – and had the pleasure of watching the latest 5 Championships as an adult – being able to fully appreciate what it means to be a fan of this franchise. The Kobe and Shaq dynamic Duo may go down as the best Duo ever in history; Time will tell – Dwayne Wade and Lebron James will definitely have something to say about that; and just as is the case in Miami now, as it was in Los Angeles, ROLE Players are the key to those teams winning championships.

Several key role players come to mind when I reflect on the Laker championships – Starting with Derick Fisher.  I can remember when D. Fish left the Lakers between the Kobe/Shaq dynasty, and the Kobe/Gasol mini-run; The moment D. Fish returned to the Lakers, they seemed to have that ‘it’ factor going again. He made a tremendous difference and I’d argue would make a huge impact on their team right now.

Ray Allen on the other hand, who’s spent almost his entire career as a Star Player, decided to ‘chase a ring’ last season when he joined the Miami Heat; to be a Role player; and oh what a role he played – hitting huge shots at the right time, helping his team to a second championship in as many years. There are several other role players on the Heat, like Chris “Birdman” Anderson, who seem to do the little things real well; They play hard, get rebounds, and play defense as well as they can; They are every bit as important as the stars.

See, this is the beauty of teamwork.

There are several teams in the NBA with star players who seem to be dynamic; but even those stars need HELP From the other people on their team; They need others to play as hard as they are playing; to give their all, even if it’s not as much.

Let’s look at network marketing for a moment and realize, that we are looking at the same thing; if you have star players on your network marketing team, who are willing to Do presentations, and meet with your people – lead the way and set an example; There are still ‘little things’ that they need their business partners to do. Those little things make a huge difference in the results of the team.

A team that edifies, is a team that attracts.

People want to be around people that like being around each other. So when ‘role players’ become jealous of the stars, and feel like the stars are talking too much – that negative state of mind transfers to the people looking at your team; They’ll be turned off and turned away; However when those role players Look FORWARD to what the star players have to say – that energy immediately translates into Positive results for everyone involved.

In network marketing, eventually everyone WILL need to play the ‘star role’ – and everyone will need to play the “role player” roles — So professionals try to figure out what ‘role’ they need to be playing; and embrace that role while they’re in it. The better you are at playing YOUR ROLE, the better results you will see, in this industry of network marketing.

TNG Presents Business Training on Being Coachable

Business Training on Being Coachable by TopNetworkersGroup ©

This may come as a shock but most people who join the network marketing industry are not coachable. They want people to help them with their MLM businesses but often resist the help when it comes. In fact, what most people mean by ‘help’ – is they want it done for them. Most people want to push a button and have success!

OR they want to buy their way into success; they don’t understand the differences between the “Investor Quadrant” and the “Business Quadrant” … nor do they get the “Self Employed Quadrant” – because they’re searching for the EASY Button; and refuse to simply READ the Instructions, on how it’s done …  they won’t study the field they’re in; and so reading books like The Cashflow Quadrant and Rich Dad, Poor Dad are viewed as ‘the slow lane’ – and ‘takes too much time’ – and fore their lack of knowledge – they perish in our industry, time, and time again.

Do you know what it means to allow someone to HELP YOU?

Being Coachable means letting (allowing) someone HELP you do things the right way – TopnetworkersGroup

The keyword there is “allow” – You have to give another person the permission to HELP YOU – and you do need an Understanding of what that Means.

Help is not ‘doing it for you’ ….

Help is showing YOU how to do it the right way.

If you are not getting the results you want in your network marketing business it is always because you are NOT doing something the right way. More than likely, you are not doing a lot of things, the right way. YOU need Help!

You need someone who will come in and point out what is “the wrong way” – And tell you the “right way” – so that you can start doing the Right things that get Results…. this would seem to be common sense, BUT — People tend to Resist Help.

Many people, due to Ego, do not allow Mentors to Mentor – or Coaches to Coach.

They want to take the credit for the success they have; and so any input from anyone else would mean that they’d have to ‘share the spotlight’ with someone else; and give Credit to someone else, for teaching them HOW to become successful.

This is very hard for a BIG EGO to do.

The Ego will not allow them to share the credit; and so THEY MUST figure out HOW to do it; on their own… since no one else will …. help them.

Again – that word ‘allow’ – and that misunderstanding of the word help; it leads to the downfall of so many.

Successful people are always giving credit to someone else.. the unsuccessful fail to learn this lesson, perhaps due to not paying attention when successful people talk. Most of them always name of others that inspired them, helped them, or paved a way for them to do what they’ve done.

No man is an island, none of us will ever succeed ‘alone’ – and that is what makes network marketing The Perfect business; when 3-5 people come together amazing things happen from there.

However, often it’s difficult to get 2 people to work ‘together’ in network marketing – because so few people understand what it means to be coachable.

In our business training through TopNetworkersGroup we STRESS the importance of a GOOD business partnership; which is all about understanding and following the principles of good TEAMWORK – which means, One Leader, and One Follower.

These Two work “Together” and produce amazing results….but don’t get the terms wrong here; There is nothing wrong with being in a Follower ‘role’ – all good leaders, are good followers first… and in a Good partnership, there is One leader, and One follower; they work Together, and produce results!

Now … as a follower, you don’t wanna follow someone who isn’t going to WORK.

Meanwhile, as Leaders, if the people ‘following’ you, are not really following .. not doing any WORK – neither of you are going to make money.

If you are following a leader who puts in work, gets results, but is looking to “HELP” Others – you are in a great position “To Learn” – that means you should be working On Yourself; Working on your approach; Working on Letting them HELP you – Allowing them to Correct what you are doing and saying Wrong – and WORK TOGETHER to create results from doing and saying the Right Things, to the Right People.

In fact… that is The WORK – it’s the WORK on ourselves; it’s the WORK To educate ourselves better and further on our industry; it’s the work to IMPROVE ourselves personally; to challenge our thinking to be positive in a world that is full of so much negative; The WORK is the stuff most people just don’t wanna do ….

This is why so few Succeed; because so few are willing to do THE WORK;

Now … I’ve met some pretty smart mouth people in my time in business; all of whom never made much money at all; and are either OUT of network marketing today – or dabbling in other opportunities, still … without much success.

Many of these smart mouth people like to Teach the teacher…

So, I’d tell them how important it is to be reading books; and I’d recommend a few —- then they’d tell me which books I should pick up as well.

Like it’s an “Equal Sharing” kind of thing … where I’m going to benefit SOO MUCH from having them as a business partner; and they can really shun off my suggestions on what books to read; because they already read books; and in fact… I should check out a few of the books THEY Have read, before I dare tell them what books to go out and digest….

Of course, they don’t always say it this way — but it is very close to how many of them feel; because the majority of people who JOIN Network Marketing companies were bad employees – they did not like being told what to do on their jobs; and usually had or have a hard time keeping a job; due to their poor attitudes about letting someone else Tell them what to do….

They turn to mlm, and the chance to ‘be their own boss’ and suddenly they have an ‘upline’ or a ‘sponsor’ that wants to give them some suggestions….

Having the wrong mentality makes it difficult to ever learn the right things – and this explains the high rate of failure – and perhaps even why many of the people who will read this blog, have failed in this kind of business.  Including the ‘good employees’, who turn to MLM also for the chance to ‘be their own boss’ ; and oftentimes because they too are sick of being told what to do — it’s understandable coming from the “Job world” – but in network marketing doing what we’re told, is beneficial.

In a business partnership, doing what our partner asks us to do makes that business relationship run smoothly; and positively; and that’s the kind of partnerships that turn out to be fruitful; It may not be easy to submit your ideas to the garbage can for a few months, and take on ideas of another person – but if you do; you’ll get where you want to go much faster – in all honesty, perhaps it has not been obvious to you but – by resisting to do the things you’re told to do; you’re resisting your opportunity to live the dream lifestyle you “say” you want to live.

The Opportunities to Get there, are everywhere – and so is the Help.

Business Training on Goal Achievement (Real Leaders Only)

This is a leadership test, because right now I am sorting for leaders.

I am looking for people that think  the same way I think.

MOST people do not and are not on my ‘level’ and it’s important for me to work with people that have the same understanding as I do; so that together we can do some special things, which will include but won’t be limited to, Free’ing people’s minds and Financially blessing the masses ……….. see, I’ve eliminated several people already.

I have 2 videos, MOST people will not watch them. They are too long.

The first is 45 minutes. The second is over 2 hours; in all close to 3 hours that I’m asking you to watch – Knowing most will make up excuses.

Most will claim they don’t see the Value.

The first video is about Goal Achievements – something leaders always ‘say’ they want; they say they value that but, they will Not watch 45 minutes of information – shared by someone who’s already achieved their goals, while helping thousands of others realize theirs as well.  But most of these ‘leaders’ are too busy with everything else – and won’t take the time to watch this in its entirety.

The Second one, is a Break Down of The Matrix Trilogy – perhaps one of the best I’ve seen, and I’m actually an Expert – I even have my “own presentation” that is unfinished at this time but, absolutely is part of our 1mlmsystem – a training site to USE this awesome movie to explain to people how We have been Born into Mental Slavery.

People say they want freedom – but 2 hours is too much time to find out how we are enslaved; how can we ‘escape’ if we don’t even understand the bondage that we are in? ….. More importantly; how can you Lead anyone else out of it – without understanding it.

So most won’t watch this information because they like Calling themselves a Leader; but they have no Real interest in BEING ONE.

The First Video:: Pasha Oliver-Carter on Goal Achievement.

Double Platinum SVP (mlm Rank) from 5linx — and more importantly, this is the first person to help ME understand Residual Income. I saw my ‘first company’ on a Thursday night… and she was flying in to train on Saturday; in what we called “Super Saturday Events” …… she gave the Same Presentation I heard on Thursday; but in the Training they told me some “new stuff” ……. including – what it means to earn Residual Income.

That was the moment that I could Visualize Financial Freedom for myself. That is the moment that leaders have a responsibility to take other people to – and she came back to California several times to train, and share wisdom; always a top producer at the time in that company; and she went on to marry one of the Other top producers, and trainers – Mr. Steve Carter.  In this video, she shares a ‘little bit’ of that wisdom I was so blessed to receive – and I share this here knowing that only a ‘few’ will actually watch it.

The rest will find “more important” things to do ………. smh

Ok …….. So hopefully you’re not one of those ‘fake leaders’ that decided NOT to watch that video and ‘skip down’ and start reading more ……. to see ‘if’ you really want to make that commitment or not. That means you already do not Trust me. Never mind that I learned this Game from people like Pasha Oliver-Carter, and her husband Steve Carter – who’s massive success over the past 15+ years speaks volumes – nevermind that I’ve got 15 years of learning from several Other Heavyweights like this and ‘might’ know a thing or two ……..

The thing is, I really only want to work with people that Think like me. So if you watched THAT First Video ……… I do wonder ‘if’ you’ll take this Next Leap of Faith (Literally) – to watch a Breakdown of, one of my favorite movies of all time; The Matrix Trilogy…..

Wow ……… So much of what you learn when you enter into the world of MLM can be compared to NEO’s experience throughout this entire film; in fact, when you come to the point I am standing at; understanding that MLM is a way to do More than just make ‘money’ for ourselves ……. Especially if you JUST watched what Pasha had to say about “WHY” we are in this industry to begin with :::  You’ll Notice that same THEME is found in this trilogy; “Understanding Why” ……… and SOO Much more.

Seriously – JUMP into this information and LET’s talk ‘after’ … I’d love to talk to people that actually Invested 3 hours into this information and can view the world; from the same place on the ledge as I’m on; Now…. for what we’re doing we are using Multiple Streams of Income; which does ‘slightly’ go against what Pasha discussed; so please do not be confused about what I want you to understand —-> in fact, that’s one way I’ll KNOW you watched BOTH of these.

The Matrix Trilogy Decoded By Mark Passio

Ok … So there it is.

IF i hear from you then you are a real leader and you Belong on my Ship; you belong on my Nebachunezzar – you’re my NEO and together we can help FREE people from the nightmare/dreamworld most are locked into.

MOST people are keeping “The System” going; and there is so much WE could do, as a people – and as a society – IF we ‘WakeUpNow’ …….. no pun intended. but that is one of several Solid Opportunities that would create financial freedom in the lives of people BUT … most will not even take the time to look.

They’ll talk against it – they’ll support ‘the system’ that is in place – Never understanding anything about Goal Achievement. Instead many people give up on Goal achievement and settle for ‘whatever comes their way’ – fully giving control up, to others. Naturally these are not leaders. However, many ‘leaders’ are self motivated and driven, and yet lack Information. A leader who lacks knowledge is a blind man.

People who follow blind men, end up in the darkness – and naturally I’m only interested in working with those who are Interested in the Light – the Knowledge of Goal Achievement; how to get it for self, and how to Help others as well; in fact, much to the message spread by the late Zig Ziglar, goal achievement has a TON to do with helping others ‘get what they want’ … first and foremost.

That’s the beauty of MLM.

No one makes money without helping others make money … that is, with the exception of the people at the VERY TOP ______ the truth is, many of them will make money whether anyone else makes money or not; and yet – They are still helping others; other leaders who are ‘near the top’ – and the Truth is, if you hang in there long enough – go to enough events, put in enough time studying this Game; you will learn it; and you’ll win while you play it.

That’s when you’re ready to Lead others.

And I’m looking for leaders to work with ::: But the truth is, most of you are not qualified to work with me. IF you spent 3 hours on this information; let’s have a conversation.

Put your Name and Number in the box on THIS page – and let’s discuss what you’ve just watched on this page, concerning Goal achievement.

Impossible is Nothing, it (goal achievement) IS possible

… and here’s a Bonus – Zig Ziglar, r.i.p.

How to Set them, How to Reach them

I look forward to talking to Real Leaders.

Get OUT of Your OWN Way – The Ego and The Door

Let’s discuss the Ego, and the Door, and why it’s important to Get out of your own way when it comes to business….. Especially, when it comes to business.

You’ve heard the saying before, “Leave your Ego At the Door” – right?

OF course you have.

It’s a term that is used in just about all professions. The first time I heard it was in Network Marketing. I will never forget it because for me, it was so profound. I had never heard it before, at any time in my life.

But it made so much Sense.

Dora Chambers, RVP (regional vice president) with the first network marketing company I got into – she had already been massively successful. 2 people in the company that were in the Top 10, and top 20 respectively, were in her Downline.

So naturally, she had my respect – I wanted that lifestyle that came with having 2 RVP’s (or more) in my Downline.  So when she shared this bit of knowledge with me I never forgot it.

GET Out of Your Own Way.

When people join a network marketing company, she said … they bring their EGO with them. Then she said, EGO stands for Edging God Out. Now, regardless of what your spiritual beliefs are, I am sorry but I’m yet to see a top income earner in a MLM Company that does not have some sort of Faith. Most of the successful people interviewed by Napolean Hill for his best seller, “Think and Grow Rich” points this out too – Most top achievers are people of Faith.

So, if you are a person of faith – why do you bring your EGO into business?

Why do you insist on having things YOUR way?

Why is it that you are so UNWILLING to do things, the way THE Company you have joined says, things need to be done?

Why don’t you Trust that they’ve already tried most of the things you are going to try; they’ve found out those things do not work; and they’ve found the things that DO WORK; which they’re now teaching to you.

BUT your EGO is so big, that you decide YOU have a better way ….


IF that’s you, YOU really need to GET out of your OWN Way;

MOST people stand in the way of their own success; because of EGO. Dora Chambers taught us then, that when it comes to network marketing – If you want to be successful, you Must Leave Your Ego At The Door.

Again, EGO means, Edging God Out – Not allowing God to work through other people; not allowing other people to tell you what to do, what to say, or how to say it – as if God does not know what He (or She) is doing…. as if YOU know more than God.

I’ll tell you this, some people do NOT believe this; But God really did send me into Network Marketing; It was a late night evening, I was outside, having a bad time in life; lost and did not know where I was going; I looked to the sky, and prayed for God to send me an “opportunity” – later that week a good friend from high school invited me, to a meeting.

To me, that’s how God works.

We pray, and then God works through other people to answer those prayers.

But the problem MOST of us have, is our EGO.

I want to share a FEW videos about why YOU need to Leave Your Ego at the Door;

This one is about fitness and weight lifting; See, EGO gets you INJURED! Same thing happens in business – don’t get HURT because your EGO is in the way.

Ego Gets Your Injured

This one shows how EGO can cause you to FAIL in Business.

People do this in MLM All the time; they come from ONE mlm company; and assume the NEXT one is exactly the same; They do not come in willing to learn; or seeking to get informed; they come in with an attitude, and an EGO; they shoot themselves in the foot; Want even more evidence? Another video – Same Topic (YOUR EGO is a problem, GET out of your own way!)

I like this one mostly because while it’s talking about RUnning, it’s also talking about how you and I have to allow things in our lives to help MOVE us to where we say we want to go.

See if we Really had Faith, we would not see Obstacles.

We would only see Stepping Stones.

get out of your own way


If you really had Faith, you’d TRUST that the people telling you what to do in your network marketing company, really do have YOUR success in mind; not just their own. The only person who really has a Financial Incentive To tell you the TRUTH is your Sponsor and Upline. People these days are listening to everyone BUT their sponsor and upline.

Even Albert Einstein said it. You wanna argue with one of the most intelligent people to ever live?

Go for it.

I won’t argue with people that are that smart. The more Ego you have, the less Knowledge you actually have. The LESS Ego you have, the more Knowledge you’ll gain. It’s true – when I set my EGO aside, I began to see Results in my business. Results = Checks.

If you don’t get CHECKS in your business; CHECK YOUR EGO (at the door), FIND a good Coach and/or Mentor – and Get Out of YOUR Own way!


Read More Business Training Articles from TopNetworkersGroup – On How Your Ego Hurts you, and does not Help you in business, and other related topics – that require you leaving your Ego at the door to reach the kind of results you want, in business. Get out of your own way. Let others teach you a few things. You’ll be surprised with how much this helps you achieve your goals!


Business Training : How Your Ego Blocks Your Success

EGO is the first obstacle in the road to success. Most people bring a huge one into a MLM company or opportunity. They bring the successes of their past, or success they had in a different company To the new one; and expect a red carpet welcome, with rose petals to walk on. I’m sure they want the Paparazzi there too but, hey they’ll understand if you don’t have that set up right away.

These people never make money in Network Marketing (MLM) – they have no real business training.

They have never learned the importance of teamwork.


They do not understand network marketing because if they did, they would already know that only their Sponsor has a financial incentive in helping them make money.

Most struggling networkers, never grasp this simple concept.

Today I had an encounter with one who joined my levelonenetwork about 35 days ago. She was not able to sponsor anyone and 15 days later, joined a coffee opportunity; then of course – tried to pitch me on signing up for it. I got a firsthand look at her horrible approach to sponsoring people.

After 15 more days of trying to pitch me the new coffee deal; She tells me she has a LevelOne Sign up coming in; finally – Then … 10 days later; she tells me she Did Not Know The Cost was Monthly and that she could not afford it; because she Just Joined, another Opportunity; that’s $100 per month; And another business that’s $50/mo.

This is what all of these struggling networkers are doing.

If You are doing this; You MUST Stop today.

This is HUGE for those of you who do take the time to look into all that’s been shared. I know that without business training it’s near impossible to be successful in any kind of business. The thing I’ve always loved about MLM is it’s real training for any business; it’s all about relationships; knowing the right people and caring about others; So that they’ll actually care about you.

This is a basic principle that if MORE People in MLM understood; They would see immediate results and improvements in their business. Thanks for taking the time to read this and look into the related information; I know this business training will benefit you – here’s to your success!
