Leaders became leaders because they were intelligent followers. The person who can follow a leader most efficiently is the one who develops into a leader the most rapidly.

I think the Oldie but Goodie story of Samuel Insuill tells everything. Losing 100 million dollars because he refused to change his plans. If that does not get a person to be FLEXIBLE then I do NOT know what will?

James Hill met with temporary defeat when he built the railroad across the USA. But he turned defeat into victory by building new plans.

Temporary defeat is supposed to mean that something is wrong with your plan. Its time to make that change. Michael Jacksons song Man In The Mirror says it! If you want to make the world a better place take a look at yourself and make that change!!

Because insanity is the definition of doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result.

Having an excellent education does NOT have any bearing on your success in network marketing nor in any other business. I was done with my first bachelors degree when I first got introduced to network marketing. It was at a career fair and I was looking for a job in finance. I saw this insurance company & was attracted to the residual income part of it. Laster I found that people who were college dropouts became millionaires in network marketing. As a matter of a fact I read about a college drop out who was a wiz at calculus back in high school and gave up on college for mlm. His parents warned him that he will have no health insurance and retirement benefits. He did not care. He wanted to be rich. He followed the top leaders in his network marketing company on confefrence calls, seminars and company conventions.

He was coachable which meant he avoided reinventing the wheel. He did all his assignments just like he did in real estate. And he became the top money earner in 3 years, unlike the ones who did things in their own way without doing their homework assignments, which was no different than working at Mc Donalds and changing the temperature for heating up the hamburgers and fries.

Same with Henry Ford, he create his fortune with NEW PLANS and turned defeat into victory. People who were better educated than him lived in poverty because they failed to plan. There is an old saying if you fail to plan then you plan to fail.

He acted on thoughts and ideas which had to do with building the worlds horseless carriage. not with those that had nothing to do with it. Like who was Benedict Arnold? He could have asked a friend and looked at a 3rd party tool if he wanted to find the answer. But he did not need to.

Are you going in the direction of riches or in the direction of the poverty? They go in OPPOSITE directions! What is your choice?
