One Helluva Ride

Rollercoaster has its ups and downs too!That’s right, I said one helluva ride. Why? Because Multi-Level Marketing has its ups and downs and there are times when its ups are really up and there are times when its downs are really down. Not fun to be on this roller coaster ride at times, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. There are three things that I have done in my career that have helped to level out the ups and downs along the way.
#1 – Sought Help – I asked for help from people that have gone through the same thing I am going through because they are on the same road I am, just a little farther up the path. I seek out people that have extremely positive attitudes and get fed shots of positivity from them in my low times. I stay in constant contact with my upline in order to stay on track and be coached through the rough times and pushed forward during the great times.

#2 – Focus on the big picture – It is easy to get distracted by individual trees and bushes while in the forest. But guess what, some of those bushes and trees are downright poisonous. Some of them are incredibly beautiful, but get into the habit of looking at the entire forest, not just one or two bad ones or one or two good ones. The entire forest is a thing of wonder and beauty. Same thing with the Multi-Level Marketing journey. It’s a wonderful experience, but it is necessary to look past the valleys and mountains along the way and keep your sites on the destination.
#3 – Never give up – I have never given up. I have been at this for quite a while and I have an incredible life as a result. I love what Tim Allen said in Galaxy Quest, “Never give up, never surrender.” It rings true in this industry as well. Never give up on the dream. Never give up on the destination. Never give up on yourself. Never give up, period.
Enjoy the ride along the way. Seek help, stay focused on the big picture, but most of all, never, ever give up. See you at the top. The view from here is spectacular.
Best to you in all you do!

    Very good thoughts. I like the idea that you reminded people of the realities of MLM and what to do to avoid those pitfalls.
