Believe it or not I have been asked more than a few times how it is that I can say bodybuilding and network marketing are similar. Well here it is…I remember going with my dad to our local gym for school shoes one year when the sound of “clank, clank, clank” caught my attention.
The sound was new to me as I was only twelve at the time, so I soon investigated. What followed would change my life more than any other single event.
I stood in awe for what seemed to be a lifetime but was really about ten minutes. I was looking at Comic-Book characters in the gym, or at least the biggest guys I had ever seen! Needless to say, I started hitting the weights regularly shortly after.
From then on, everyone knew me as the “gym guy.” In the sixth grade I could squat and bench press more than the senior football players. My training continued off-and-on for the next 15 years. Not until I got really consistent with my training regimen and diet did I see the kind of results I was looking for.
The point of my story is that whether you are a bodybuilder or a team builder one factor must be in place in order to be successful. That factor is consistency. The way I define consistency is “do a simple act daily that will get you closer to your goal.” Tony Horton, of the P90X exercise video program says it this way: “Just press play every day” (and do the exercises!) EVERY DAY is the key. You can’t let how you’re feeling at any given time deter you from reaching your goal. It means getting up early to get breakfast. It means going to the gym EVERY day to get the results you’re after. Get up early and stay late. No shortcuts!
At National Agents Alliance, the same principles hold true. To have a successful, growing business you have to do the simple things, EVERY day, that will move you closer to your goal. That means making the dials to potential recruits EVERY day, making the dials to potential clients EVERY day. Get to the Rotation meetings early and stay late. No shortcuts.
Many people fail at building a business because they won’t do the simple, consistent things it takes. The most successful agents at National Agents Alliance master the simple, little things that anyone COULD do. They do them consistently, day after day, while the losers make excuses why they can’t get things done.
To your success!
