I have had many plans  in my life that were not successful, most of them had to do with network marketing. First, Hill tells us that “To be sure of success, you must have plans which are faultless.” My plans were not faultless or they would have been successful. At this point most people, myself included in the past have let the conditioned monkey mind out of the cage and allowed it to speak words like Well I tried. This just wasn’t meant for me. This just isn’t my cup of tea or 100 other excuses instead of finding another plan that DOES WORK. The most important thing is to have the persistence to get back up and find that plan.

And the second thing that he tells us is that “we must have the advantage of the experience, education, native ability and imagination of other minds” that is why I’m so glad that we have the masterminds we have here at MFF. Many masterminds have a purpose or set goal. This one for example is to get our heads right or personal development if you will. The other very important one is the Saturday night coaches corner call, How many people in network marketing can directly call up the next closest upline millionaire and pick their brains on any given subject they want to talk about? Not very many if ANY I’ll tell you that! Most of them just don’t make themselves available. But that’s exactly what you can do with this one. I really miss being able to be on it because for the time I have to be out doing Uber but I do know if there is something pressing I need to know I can always take the night off and get my questions answered.

And the third thing and probably most important is to NEVER QUIT. Hill says “A QUITTER NEVER WINS-AND—A WINNER NEVER QUITS. So important that he also says “Lift this sentence out, write it on a piece of paper in letters an inch high, and place it where you will see it every night before you go to sleep, and every morning before you go to work.” which I just did this time around. Why it takes me so long to do the obvious just baffles me sometime, like my procrastination of the visualization that is making such a difference like I knew it would.

Recently I came up with a strategy to acquire some new team members in my business from a source and ran into a little roadblock that was really not my fault, just governed by some rules of the source I was using. Nevertheless my plan was obviously not faultless but the good thing about network marketing is there is not just one way to do things but many. You just keeping on going, finding the one that does work and then just do more of it and again NEVER QUIT

Now I couldn't have discussed this strategy in Mentoring For Free because it is a generic call but I could have with my team member mastermind and I didn't so whose fault is that. Hold on, let me run look in the mirror and I'll answer that question.

I love the fact that in this book Hill gives us the opportunity and lists the questions we need to ask in our own self analyzation to discover some of the things that are in our lives that are holding us back if we take the time to do them and be brutally honest with ourselves.

Thank you thank you thank you Linda and Michael Dlouhy THAT THEY NEVER QUIT! And that with this program the learning never stops unless we do. And thank you to all my friends and mastermind partners for sharing your thoughts with me each and every week. Thank you also for each and every person that takes the time to download my e-book and allows me to mentor them.
