We live in a world of smartphones, pop-up notifications, and all-knowing search engines. With multiple devices on hand at once, we’re constantly connected to our on-demand world: you want it now; you get it now.
Of course, there are many perks to living in this instant gratification society. Technology fuels productivity and gives us the answers we need to succeed, quickly. Innovations like Instant Pay help Associates just like you receive hard-earned commissions right away, so you can better navigate your daily life.
But living in the fast lane can also affect our work ethic, personalities, and expectations. It may make us less patient, or more dissatisfied. It may alter our vision; weaken our inner motivation.
Since we’re used to getting what we want when we want it, we may spend our whole lives in search of the next best thing—even when it’s right in front of us.
Remember: patience is a virtue
and it plays a KEY ROLE in business.
A one-track mind cannot create long-term wealth. You must see—and never lose sight of—the BIG PICTURE.
Don’t get distracted by things that shine. Incentives and luxury vacations are great things to work towards and earn, but they are NOT the deciding factors of your success story. To achieve them is to achieve a short-term goal.
The action you take in between qualification periods—when you’ve already earned your spot at the next incentive trip; when you’ve already been recognized on stage for your new rank—is what matters MOST.
There is always more work to be done.
What you should always be striving for is the top of the Compensation Plan: Imperial Blue Diamond.
How to get there:
- Work hard and stay committed.
- Focus on DUPLICATION.
- Develop leaders in different levels of your organization.
- Help others reach their goals, while keeping their eyes on the big picture.
- Repeat, repeat, repeat.
Consistent, hard work and strategic teamwork are the ONLY ways to reach the top. Network marketing isn’t a sprint; it’s a marathon. Do you have what it takes to WIN?
