Why not me was the question that highlighted a morning Wake Up Call with Diane Hochman, one of MLSP’s leaders when I first joined the industry a while back. A compelling question! Her words really resonated with me and I started thinking about those three little words that, in actuality, are so very powerful.
There are so many forces out there that pull you in every direction, sometimes making you feel that maybe you’re spinning your network marketing wheels. This is due to a lack of training and a lack of personal development and without the skillset and the mindset, you can feel defeated.
Why Not Me? A Compelling Question
As I visited websites, read blogs, watched videos and webinars and attended company events, I constantly heard people and saw people who WERE doing it, people who HAD done it. I listened to their down and out stories about how they made it through bad times – whether drowning in debt or losing their homes or so many other kinds of misfortune – and now they’re making six figure incomes or more. I thought about that question, Why not me?
Living The Lifestyle
Those six figure earners were living a lifestyle with time and financial freedom. I wanted that to be me for several reasons. I’m a single mother who raised three children through rougher than rough times. For what seemed like all my adult life, I struggled. I put myself through college and got three degrees when it was all said and done. When I joined my company, I wanted to have all what having success in the company meant. It was important to me to have my home business take off. I felt I could just reach my hand out and grab success. I thought about those six figure earners who Ms. Hochman said were all regular people – and that if they could do it, why couldn’t you? Why couldn’t I?
Don’t Give Up On Yourself
I worked in the school system for almost thirty years and during that time, I led teachers, I managed students, I counseled parents. In that role, I gave hundreds of presentations and spoke in front of thousands of people. I served the institution of education well. It has always been a calling for me to help and serve others. That’s what I’ve always done and that’s what I want to continue to do. But I must admit, I felt a little impatient when I heard about all the people who were moving up. I asked,”Why can’t this be me?” And then the words of so many leaders resonated in my head. “Don’t compare yourself to others. You are on your own journey. It will happen for you, in your own time – just never give up on yourself.”
The MLSP Community
So, as a member of the amazing MLSP community, I kept at it. I worked on mastering my chosen marketing strategies, I was an eager and alert webinar attendee. I was on the Wake Up Call daily and continued to repeat to myself, “Why NOT Me? This is my time. Now is when I choose to live my life without someone’s else schedule or agenda. I can see that the things that I really want are really attainable. This is the time I can dream and not only dream but make my dreams come true.”
So, if you’ve been feeling a little frustrated or uncertain about your network marketing future, just remember those three little words, Why Not Me? Just believe in yourself. I’m sure you’ll see that there is no reason at all for it NOT to be you.
