It’s really amazing!! The day before I was planning on beginning this blog I found a book by Mark and Rene Reid Yarnell called Your First year in Network Marketing. For those of you who don’t know, Mark Yarnell is considered a master Network Marketer. I believe at one point he was named the best Network Marketer in the WORLD!! Anyway, I’ve just started reading the book and the first thing that struck me was the idea that success in network marketing is about staying with it. He wrote that so many people get discouraged and drop out of the business in the first year, but that those who stick it out are usually successful.
Hmm….The focus of my upcoming website and soon-to-be ebook, is the idea that It’s All Success. What I mean by that is that even something that feels like failure, can be success if you learn from it and use it to propel you forward towards your goal. It appears that Mr. Yarnell might be saying a similar thing. In the field of psychology there’s something called “reframing”. It’s a fancy name for taking an event and using the power of your intellect to change the meaning that you give to that event. An event or situation has power to effect you emotionally, either negatively or positively depending on the meaning that you give to it.
I like what I’ve read so far in this book because it helps me feel that my results so far after only 6 months as a network marketer are actually OK. So many people in my company have catapulted to the top levels in 6-9 months. I’m doing well, but not that well. Mr. Yarnell says that the goal of the first year as a network marketer is just to stay in the game…not to quit. I’ll let you know what he says next, as I keep reading. Meanwhile…stay positive and stay with it. We’ll learn how together, as we become successful in our work at home businesses.
