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!

Is The Rule of 7 Real Important or Not Important at all?

I first heard about this ‘theory’ some time ago, in my early years of network marketing. When you RUN out of a LIST early on, like we did, you had to explore the world of Cold Marketing. People like me, turned to the internet early, and found out how important it is to build relationships with others, before sharing your business opportunity with them.

The rule of Seven simply suggest that people need to SEE or HEAR about something several times, Seven Times at least, before becoming interested. That’s an important lesson for you and I to learn and embrace. (work with an awesome team)

How often have you posted an ‘ad’ on facebook and gotten discouraged because not too many people responded to it? How many of you Continued to post that Same ad, consistently, “until” getting the desired result? (get trained on network marketing)

Most people GIVE UP too early – Make sure you’re not MOST people; Check out the original article below, about “the Rule of Seven” and decide just how important this is for your business. (brand NEW business worth advertising several times….)

The Rule of Seven (Original Article)

April 3, 2012

sevenIn the marketing game, there is an old adage that basically says that people only really pay attention to any sort of marketing material after ignoring it six times. The seventh time, it is believed, is the time when the person finally takes note of the marketing and what product is on offer, as well as considering making a purchase. Every other instance, that’s not the case. Of course, “seven” isn’t set in stone and the realization may come sooner or later than that, but the general idea is near-universal. Whether it is an Effexor lawsuit that is about to turn into a class action or a mint-condition Lamborghini Miura, the rule of seven’s notion of delayed reactions applies and should be accommodated in the plan.

Noise is part of the rule of seven. There’s a lot of stuff going on in the modern world, with so many products competing for the attention of every last scrap of the market. The result is that even the best-designed of marketing materials don’t always get noticed. They’re slowly drowned out by the background noise – or considered by a majority of the public to be part of that noise.

Sometimes, the rule of seven applies because the product isn’t needed by the customer at the time they see it. Since it isn’t needed, they don’t pay attention to it and just continue on as if they’d never encountered it.

Price can affect the exact number, as well. Customers may find that they’re interested in what is being offered to them, but they aren’t entirely sure they need it at the cost that’s being asked for. This is particularly prevalent in certain income ranges and during the right economic conditions, when people are far more conscious of how much they spend and on what than they would normally be.

Then there are the times when the rule of seven factors in because the customers don’t know, like, or trust the business. Maybe the product or company is new, so it is untested and thus struggling to find customers willing to give them a try. It is possible that the market has a lot of people that are loyal to another product or aren’t fond of the brand or the company attached to it. Or perhaps they simply do not trust the company for any number of reasons, including a possible widespread product recall or highly-publicized major defect in the past.

How to Overcome Failure simply by Choosing to be Successful

I did a hangout with a real Leader, who’s been Very successful in business; and in life overall – while also facing failures & obstacles that he has overcome; He has an Amazing Story to tell, and I’m excited to bring you that Recording .. right here

His name, is Damon Brooks, Sr.

I was invited to work with him in a Pre-Launch opportunity. The company actually Starts Pre-launch in February so now is the time to Position yourself, and others.

I had seen this program briefly, before being invited to work with Mr. Brooks. Because of the success he’s had in business, and the dedication he shows to businesses that are Proven to Pay Out, I went ahead and got positioned – with what might turn out to be a very solid business opportunity.

Watch the entire hangout, as I start the Live Call out, discussing why a busy professional would consider adding “another business” to a plate that is already full, which is exactly the sitatution I am in, as the CEO and Founder of TopNetworkersGroup, having just launched OUR own training system for network marketers, And recently re-activating my empower network; I definitely have a full plate.

I’m also a Veteran of the Industry; which says A lot… having been around for over 14 years now – starting out with a successful MLM Company in 1998 and staying in Just One Company for 5 years, till 2004; I know what it’s like to be ‘married to a company while not making much money’ ….

I also took the business education I got while IN that MLM company very seriously; and used it to start a successful business of my own; I kept a close eye on the industry, while also earning some additional income in various online affiliate programs between 2004 and 2009 – so I understand that There is a Difference between MLM Companies and Affiliate Programs; I’ve been studying, using, and applying Internet Marketing techniques since 2000 – and so I have a wealth of experience that allows me to earn income in Several places at one time; I share many of those insights on How I am able to do it, in this Hangout

– but … I’m really not who you want to see.

You will want to brace yourself, for the Wise words and Experiences of Mr. Damon Brooks, Sr., who delivers nugget after nugget on what it takes to be successful in Business. He talks about HOW a busy professional who is already making money in other places, and who’s focused on a Income Stream that they have been building for a matter of months  – can Position themselves in a “new” business opportunity, while remaining focused on what they have been focused on. It’s absolutely exactly what every single person in MLM wants to know, and Mr. Brooks delivers the goods … Get your PEN and PAD ready!!!! Get ready to hit REWIND several times!!!

Hangouts are The Future!

If you have not caught the bug yet … perhaps it’s just because you have not SEEN these in action.

I plan on sharing a few Google Hangout ‘recordings’ with you, just so you can get an idea – BUT I wanna start from the top.

I recently re-opened my blog with a company that pays me to post what’s on my mind — which is one of the original reasons I began blogging back in 2006 – I’ve always liked/loved this platform as a way to share information, send traffic to a website, or just simply connect with like minded people.

One of the main tools the leaders of the ‘get paid to blog’ company use, is Google Hangouts – I remember seeing the commercial during the NBA Playoffs last year and it looked pretty cool; But to watch others apply it to business has been amazing!

Here’s the Official “how to use Google Hangouts” video that you need to see, featuring programmers and developers that have played a vital role in making this technology available, and useful for us all — especially those of us in business!

See the original here.

Pretty Amazing stuff right?

Now you know HOW to use Google Hangouts, if you have not already been testing this out for your self. I for one am looking forward to what my team and I can do together, using this platform to discuss business ideas, share presentations, and So Much more.

Have YOU Tried using this technology at all yet??

Here’s a Recorded hangout from a couple days ago – but be warned, they are talking about “Making Money” …  and here’s one more …. (do not click this link, if you do not want to hear people who make money, talking about how they made it…)

This Google Hangout’s thing… is a movement that cannot be stopped, and it’s already almost everywhere – I have seen people do some incredible things with this; Including several top money earners in my industry all sitting down to discuss their success stories; Clearly this one has “just” gotten started, and where we can go from here … is going to be something to see!

My team and I are going to start using them as well – There are some plans I cannot speak about publicly and, we’ll be using the hangouts to record some Powerful information that everyone will want to see; Stay tuned for the announcement coming soon.

 

ACN vs. TBA :: Let’s Talk Money

This is the first version of a video presentation I have wanted to put together for some time now.

The reason this video was put together is simple. I came from ACN, and it was my first company.  I met some of the most wonderful people during my time in that company, and after 4 1/2 years,  my Renewal was more than my Residual.

So, I walked away from the company … but I never lost ‘faith’ in the Industry of Network Marketing.  ACN is still the standard for all network marketing companies in our industry today. .. As far as HOW to TRAIN and TEACH this business.

There is however, One Fatal flaw – ACN’s compensation plan just may be the worst in our industry ‘today’ – So this video, strips away all the hype, and gets right down to the MONEY.

I will soon be shooting an Updated VERSION of this video, which will be slightly shorter; FOR Now, I felt it was important to get this information out there – if you are currently WITH ACN, do not leave the company. Instead, look at this as a serious option to HELP enhance what you are doing with ACN.

To review the TBA Opportunity, watch the video below – and then decide WHICH program you want to use, to start earning money NOW, with people that you can bring into ACN later. Do not allow the $499 Challenge to stop you from earning money in ACN.
