As Devon and I were out for our morning run, I noticed we have an interesting pattern…
I seem to be a little slow to get going. She pretty much always goes out ahead of me while I’m trying to catch up heaving for air.
But then around a mile or so in, I catch my stride, catch up to her and then I’ll keep up or go ahead for the rest of the run.
It got me thinking about how I started in Network Marketing…
I started out heaving for air. (Metaphorically speaking)
I watched everyone pass me up.
After 5 years I was still struggling… But because I kept going, I hit my stride and then ended up passing just about everyone.
You see, Network Marketing isn’t a sprint…
It’s a marathon.
I’ve seen plenty of show-boats who come in and create a lot of results quickly…
But more times than not, because they never learned any endurance, they slow down to a crawl, plateau for years, and sometimes even quit.
The first sign of challenges, instead of pushing themselves harder to build endurance, they sit back and rest.
Building endurance in Network Marketing is a lot like building endurance in running.
It often feels like you can’t push yourself any harder… but you always can.
And BECAUSE you push yourself when it’s hurting, that’s what trains you to build more and more endurance.
In business, I’ve been beaten up so many times I can’t count. From taking 5 years to get full-time, to having a company go out of business on me, to having top leaders quit, to straight up sabotage, fraud against me, and so many others…
There have been SO many times I’ve wanted to just take a back seat… to relax… to quit – not forever but just for a little while.
And don’t get me wrong, I’ve done my fair share of relaxing… I’ve traveled to over 80 countries and vacationed with the best of them.
But here’s what I know…
When you’re winded and you feel like relaxing and taking a back-seat, those are the exact times when you need to push yourself harder.
It’s easy to keep going when you feel good. But the endurance, power and real strength in leadership grows when it hurts.
I don’t know where you’re at in your journey, but just know…
You have another level inside you if you’re willing to push.
If you’d like some keys to bring yourself up to the next level of endurance, leadership and skill, be sure to read my book, 7 Secrets to Success available at www.7StrategiesBook.com.
It outlines the 7 strategies that have allowed me to create success for the past 19 years in a row without fail.
