Network Marketing Truth Revealed On Flexible Planning Today

Reggie Liggins teaches us the network marketing truth revealed on planning but being flexible as well and making adjustments when necessary.

"If the first plan which you adopt does not work successfully, replace it with a new plan; if this new plan fails to work, replace it in turn with still another, and so on, until you find a plan which does work. Right here is the point at which the majority of men meet with failure because of their lack of persistence in creating new plans to take the place of those which fail."

"It should be encouraging to know that practically all the great fortunes began in the form of compensation for personal services, or from the sale of ideas. What else, except ideas and personal services, would one not possessed of property have to give in return for riches?" ~ N.H., T&GR Chapter 7

I found this chapter on Organized Planning interesting in that, to me, it did not have a whole lot to say about how to create a plan, other than in reference to securing employment. It did talk about the importance of creating and associating with a Mastermind Group who will help you refine and validate the plan. Hill spent considerable space other several other things. But really, what does Leadership, and 31 Ways to Fail have to do with Organized Planning, or with transmuting the Desire for Money into riches? I believe quite a lot actually.

As Michael Dlouhy often says on the 30 Day Mental Cleanse calls, "you have to become the person that people want to be in business with". And to do that you to become a leader and you have to eliminate a lot of the traits and habits that causes one to fail.

Of course, when I got into network marketing, the last thing I wanted to be was a leader. I just wanted to make a lot of money. But how do you do that in network marketing? Remember, you have to become the person people want to be in business with. And why would they want to be in business with you? Because they think or believe that YOU can help THEM succeed and get what THEY want. They are looking for someone to follow, they are looking for someone to LEAD them, and if you're lucky that someone will be you. And if they are lucky, you will be ready to lead them. In order to make a significant income in network marketing, you will need to build and lead a large network of people. And as Hill points out time and time again, before you lead others you have to be able to lead yourself.

In order to properly lead oneself, you have to get rid of all of the traits, behaviors, and habits that have caused countless others to fail. Hill says you need to check yourself point by point against the list of Thrity One ways to fail. And then you have to go to work on yourself to get rid of anything that doesn't serve you, that as Hill puts it, stands between you and success. This is part of the process Michael talks about, of becoming the person that people want to be in business with. Nobody wants to follow someone who doesn't know where he or she is going. Nobody wants to be in business with someone who doesn't believe in themselves. I mean, go down the list. Would you want to be led by someone who has a lot those quirks? Also, you have to be a good follower yourself. You cannot lead where you will not go, and you cannot teach what you do not know.

What Hill has presented us with in this chapter is an Organized Plan to a better you. How much is it worth for you to become a better person, a better parent, spouse, friend? What would it be worth to others if you could truly become a leader, a 'mentor with a servant's heart'. How many people could you help find their way? That is my goal. And with the help of this wonderful and unique Mastermind Group led by Michael and Linda, I feel that my goal is now within sight.

Use the network marketing truth revealed on flexible planning today by taking action and not getting attached to the outcome, because that will drive you crazy!
