Is your “Why” strong enough?

The above video is an interview in a behind the scenes event with David Sprague and John Di Lemme. I discovered John a few years back and what a tremendous story this man has! You wouldn’t think that he had struggled with stuttering as he was growing up. His teachings in his book, Champions are Born and Losers are Made will give you a whole new outlook on life! I am a champion if I get myself out of the way and quit looking at my failures as a negative instead of a stepping stone to success.
Those who truly get ahead are those who are not afraid to make those mistakes along the way. As a recovering alcoholic, I had to learn that looking at that rear view mirror, I will never get better. Yes, I can’t forget who I have hurt along the way. I have amends to make to several people during my seventeen years of drinking. What is my “why” to stay sober?
Sometimes, I wonder that as well. I feel at times, that I am too old to start a new path. I had to go back to some of my original dreams that I had developed while trying the various network marketing businesses. What is it that I truly want to gain from life today? Will God even accept me for what I have done and help me along my journey in recovery and working a networking business again?
As most of you know, that in any business it takes a whole lot of time and money before you even see the fruits of your labor. In a sense, we are truly working for free because we don’t make anything unless we make a sale. More so in network marketing until you get smart and want to build a team to help you along the way. Although, depending on the business, some people just focus on the sale and not developing a team of associates. As some of you remember from our good friend, Hunter Gray, the business is about recruiting and developing leaders who just happen to sell a few products along the way.
So what do you do if your part of the “NFL club? You meet new people and learn how to market online. You change your philosophies and start investing on yourself as Jim Rohn tells us,  “Work harder on yourself than you do on your job. Wages make you a living while profits will make you a fortune.”
Network marketing is a part time business when you first get started. Most of us always want the overnight success, but it doesn’t work that way. It takes time. How much time? As long as it takes for you to read the books that you need in order to become that successful person. So what happens when we are constantly told that we can’t accomplish our new dreams?
Wipe the dust off and continue on your path. As I am reminded in Genesis 39:21-22 stay committed no matter the circumstance. Today my why is not only to get out of debt but to help others to get out of their own depression and fear of being accepted for the person that they are becoming. We all have a past, but our past doesn’t determine our future as Mr. Les Brown points out. Are you ready to become a Champion in your business? I will leave you with a link to John’s website for you to find out more information. Make use of all the free resources that you can until you can afford it! http://www.lifestylefreedomclub.com/

To your Success,
