Chapter 9 - Persistence
Patrick Lencioni has stated "Success is not a matter of mastering
subtle, sophisticated theory but rather of embracing common
sense with uncommon levels of discipline and persistence.
Most things that really work well are logical, simple and make sense.
We, though as people, tend to complicate things. We just make things
harder than they need to be.
Network Marketing is really a simple business. We buy products, we use
the products and we share them with others. Some will join us in the business,
others will become customers and some just are not interested.
We use different methods to connect and find people to share our
opportunity and products with. With the Mentoring for Free System
we connect with people, we offer the e-book, we offer three skills calls
and a free coaching call.
Some people ask for the e-book but never download it and some download it
but never read it. Some will download the book, read it and ask for the
three skills calls and listen to them and never do anything more.
Then some will listen to the skills calls and never set times for a coaching call and
some with download the book, read it, listen to the skills calls and have
a coaching call but never do anything with the information they received
but go back to doing what they did before because they just thought it was
all too complicated or they thought it sounds too simple so it probably does
It only takes a couple of hours to read "Success in 10 Steps". It only takes
and hour and a half to listen to the skills calls and it only takes less than
an hour for a private coaching call. People, though looking for answers, don't
want to take the time to do the things that just may be the answer they were
looking for but they will never know because they just did not use logical,
simple common sense.
We complicate things as well. We may listen to some training calls and think
it sounds too complicated and put off implementing the training. If we would
begin with one simple step, and another, and another, we would find it is not
as complicated as we thought. I have to admit I have done this with some of
my company training. I have used time and my husbands condition as an excuse
to put off implementing this training. The training is logical, simple and makes
sense. I just need to use what Patrick Lencioni stated and "embrace common
sense with uncommon levels of discipline and persistence."
Denis Waitley said "Success is almost totally dependent upon drive and persistence.
The extra energy required to make another effort or try another approach is the secret of winning."
As Sarah Thompson stated in one of her training calls "Plan, do, review and adjust."
It all takes persistence.
