Don’t you just love that networking and home-based business are a level playing field.

Remember Bill Murray in ‘Meatballs’ ?

The speech he gave to the campers just before the BIG competition?

He kept yelling…..until they all did….

“It just doesn’t matter”

I love networking for that reason alone……..

Sex, Race, Color, Creed, Spiritual Belief……“It just doesn’t matter”

Past performance…..“It just doesn’t matter”

Been fired or promoted…..on a job? “It just doesn’t matter”

Been passed over at your job……or been the guy who got picked when you should not have been?

“It just doesn’t matter”

A stay at home Mom or Dad who never ran a big business?

“It just doesn’t matter”

And your path to success?  That doesn’t matter either, not really.

Huh?

There is an idea in our heads when we get started about how it is going to work out or how much we are going to make.

For me?  I needed, I mean I had to have $300 a month….had taken a huge hit in my pay, raising 2 kids on my own…..short on rent….needed $300 yesterday.

Other’s think they are going to make $50,000 a month….very cool.

That is another thing that just doesn’t matter……….all that does matter is that you, me, Moe, Larry and Curley…..what matters….is we said “YES”

There are three times the word “YES”must be a “YES” in every fiber of our being……not the “YES” that means ‘maybe’……a real, no turning back “YES”

The other 2 “YES” times that are critical to building a large group…….but with out that first “YES” …..well, the other two …..fit into the “It just doesn’t matter” group.

YES # 1

People want to be a part of something bigger and nothing rings bigger than an average bozo on the bus, living week to week…..like most of us when we get start…..saying “YES” to his/her life.

The level of our commitment to change in our life…..is the level of inspiration we ignite in others.  Period.

Most people live lives of quiet desperationThoreau

Sure the plan, product, company….great, you love them….but it is the commitment to adventure, to the unknown, to the new person we have become before we earn a check that inspires others…..that gives others permission to dream a little….or a lot.

“YES” to changing, improving and experiencing personal growth with no looking back that is your real compelling asset.

YES # 2

Practice.

Learning some new skills……we need to understand, and say “YES” to talking to people.

Most people do this:

  • Ready
  • Shoot
  • Aim

If we were shifting from teacher to software engineer…..it would never occur to us that we were equipped to do the job……we would know we would have to learn some skills to be as successful at software engineering as we were at plumbing……

For some reason, that eludes most of us for a while.    And, sadly……I give these skills to folks on my team….and they do not practice.

If the business is going to come up, we have to bring it up…..we have to talk to people….we need to learn and practice what to do and what to say.

If I told you it took me 3 hours to learn and master a skill that got my ‘yes’ rate up to 90+% and it was free…..would you learn it, practice it and use it?

Well, if your answer is ‘YES” here you go……..’YES

By the way, I have a learning disability and most people can learn and master that skill in 2 hours…..pay off?  Priceless.

YES # 3

Service.

If we think about ourselves……we will limit our results and most likely never come close to our pure potentiality……which is virtually infinite.

When we get involved in the dreams of others…..and wake up everyday thinking about how to make it happen for them…..get into service…..the results stun us.

Do we know the dreams of our personals?  Yeah, we told them to write them down…

  • but do we have them?
  • Know them like our own?
  • Have our personal’s personals written goals memorized?

If not, we are just kidding ourselves that we care about others….and they know it.

Until we line up and live from these 3 ‘YES” answers……..we cannot hope to go past a certain point ……

Once we do?

No matter who you are, what you believe politically, about kids, religion ……it’s a level playing field and no one or nothing can prevent you from advancing ……

It’s your company from you down…….wow….

1,760 yards
5,280 feet
63,360 inches
160,934.4 centimeters
1,609,344 millimeters

The numbers look very different but they all respresent the exact same thing…..

….when someone, you, me….. get started…..and say “YES”……it’s all the same  distance to success for all of us…….

Just two more times we need to say and mean “YES”

Once we do……no matter how it’s going………

IT JUST DOESN”T MATTER

..because we know what it takes……..and it will happen

And most of all…..RELAX……have some fun once is a while……

Enjoy ……
