Notable Historic Events good or bad happened because there was extensive planning behind them.   The attack on Pearl Harbor was after eleven months of planning.  The Japanese continued to refine their plans while they were working diplomatically to relieve the tensions with the United States.  To our blessing they retreated after this attack.


D Day Preparation and planning took approximately four years. The initial planning began after the evacuation of Dunkirk in Nineteen Hundred and forty. The allies knew ending the second World War they had to land powerful forces in a German occupied Europe.  This required designing, building, and moving thousands of vehicles, ships, and aircraft. Thousands of troops had to be trained. The process gathered some momentum after the Pearl Harbor attack. Neither of these historic days was pleasant and thousands of people died.  They, however, both had extreme historical significance. Pearl Harbor was a wake up call for the United States and D DAY was the beginning of the end of the German Occupation and control of Europe. 


Neither of these events would have been successful if not for organized planning.


Organized Planning is not just required for Military Operations; it is necessary for success in any endeavor that can change a life or multiple lives.  This goes for sports, conventional business, and network marketing business.

Everyone here is probably now aware of my long-term goal of becoming an Ironman.  Have discussed the amount of training, preparation, and steps there are on my quest. 


Henry Ford was a great leader, businessmen, and visionary.  Many of the Nay Sayers and Intellectual snotty elites claimed that Ford was ignorant and uneducated.  Ford, however, got the last laugh and mankind benefited from Ford’s endeavors.  Ford did not know everything, but was surrounded by individuals who had the skills and knowledge he needed to accomplish the mission.   Because of Ford’s planning and leadership is why most Americans and the rest of the first world have at least one automobile.


Why?  He practiced organized planning along with his desire, faith, autosuggestion, and imagination.  


The same principle is no different in Network Marketing. Anyone who has built a large direct sales business used the power of thought, had desire, had faith, autosuggestion, and had imagination. They as well probably used organized planning.  They worked hard, but did not build their businesses from scratch to a multi million-dollar endeavor that produces consistent monthly revenue.  


First as Michael says, they partnered with a five-pillar company with management that built a sustainable system, which can be duplicated.  In other words their company practiced organized planning.


The Successful Distributor through hard work and focus found and developed other leaders.  They partnered, taught, and mentored them the duplicable system so their leaders were able to the same with their team. 


They as well practiced organized planning through goal setting, adjustments, time management and prioritization.


Building a successful business requires working hard and working smart.  Every one of us will face rejection, life challenges, negativity, and self-doubt.  


Personal development and association with positive individuals will help carry us through the challenging times.  Mentoring for Free is the place to be.


Thank you Michael and Linda Dloughy for this wonderful program.  Thank you Rick Burnett for reaching out to me and becoming a good friend.  Thank you to everyone who participates on these weekly calls.
