I hate when they tell me about their MLM or next-big-thing home business, gazillion dollar, big-shit, opportunity.
Not because I have problems handling their pathetic sales attempts. Actually, that’s the part i like. Gmail has a great spam filter. And when it fails, all I have to do is show it a sample of the message that slipped through the filter and any more like it get taken care of for good. I’m a bit weird like that, because I enjoy looking in my spam folder sometimes. It helps me appreciate all the time i saved with the love of my life, amazing, beautiful, sexy Gmail.
What kills me is lazy people with a lottery mindset. I don’t feel sorry for them! They’re Always looking for shortcuts. They keep holding out, doing fuck-all for YEARS in Network Marketing for that lucky break.
They think, “If I can just (fluke) recruit a strong leader in my downline, I’ll finally start making money.”
And that’s why I hate when they ask me. They are lazy and are unashamed! They think there is a chance that I would come ÃÂ join them in THEIR downline. Why would I?
Because their opportunity’s income potential is so amazing? If so, then why haven’t they been able to tap into it yet?
Or do they think I believe in the same myths they do?
Is the system or opportunity you buy what determines your success?
Systems and opportunities are lifeless products. They don’t work without pilot or master. Followers not leaders,ÃÂ buy products expecting them to turn them successful.
The marketing system they FOLLOW was created by a marketing LEADER. The reason they shift to a new opportuity that others are flocking to is only because major LEADING recruiters made money in it first. ÃÂ
N E W S ÃÂ F L A S H:
Leaders don’t follow followers.
And that’s what they are. Followers the bunch of ’em. I can sniff a follower miles away. Ya know, the ones who, in quick succession quote quotables from multiple gurus (including myself)–and they think that it will make an impression on me.
These are the guys who spend all their “business time” faking it. Kinda like how they’re used to doing at their jobs. Expecting promotion without doing anything to earn it. Pretending to work, when they’re really playing solitaire on their PC and uploading photos on Facebook.
It’s miserable. I meet them every day, searching and jumping from one thing to the next. They think, “If I can just find that opportunity/system/product/comp plan/marketing product, that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, I’ll finally start making money.”
Yeah? They can keep dreaming. They may as well believe in Santa Clause and the Tooth Fairy.
What are they 3 years old?
Speaking of childhood–
When I was 5, my neighbour was a lovely old lady. She tried to teach me about Santa Clause and the Tooth Fairy (they werent part of my culture and my poor backward parents didn’t tell me fairy tales). Mum once told me a story about a genie and dad gave me a long lecture about how stupid it is to believe such tales.
Anyway, I played along and humoured her–letting old people feel usefulÃÂ isÃÂ part of my backward culture.ÃÂ I let her write me a note to the Tooth Fairy and put it under my pillow as she asked me to. Keep in mind, I was 5. The idea of a “Fairy” just seemed STUPID.
Well, next morning, I found a coin under my pillow! ÃÂ Yeah right, tooth fairy my butt. Mum, Who put that under my pillow?
When she wouldn’t tell me, I actually went outside and LOOKED for my tooth under my bedroom window. And I found it in the grass.
Sadly, that pleasant grandmother believed in the grown up’s version of the tooth fairy–the good ole New Zealand LOTTO. She went to a lot of trouble every saturday to buy her ticket. Each week she thought she had the winning numbers. For most of her adult life, she never missed a week.
Last year, she passed away. She never won. Not one cent.
And that’s what happens to those people looking for a fairy to come into their lives and save them from their misery. They mostly don’t win.
And the sad part is, they line the pockets of the few who win by design (not by chance).
As for you, you’re not them. You’re here, I believe in you. Don’t ask me why, but I do cause you have a smart look on your face. You HAVE a choice:
You can keep waiting for that one chance in a million–or a billion! And you may live your whole life broke and die that way.
Or, you can start now, and design your win. Do it manually, learn what the home business millionairs know. Don’t jump from short-cut to short-cut. Don’t quit your job and sell your car and max your credit card to the last cent so you can buy a fairy. Expect to spend 3-5 years in the trenches, master business and marketing skills–Take it as a career not a lottery. Then you’ll at least guarantee that in 3-5 years you’ll be able to travel to a country or two for that luxury holiday you always dreamed of.
I made my choice, paid my dues, and became a master of my business. Join me in my camp.
Everyone else can keep buying lottery tickets.
