Have You Made a Decision or a Commitment?

commmitmentA Story of 3 Frogs on a Log

A lot of people know this one, but here is goes anyway:

3 Frogs were sitting on a log in a pond. One frog decided to jump off. How many Frogs are still sitting on the log?

All of them. One simply decided to jump into the water, it never actually took the necessary action to do so.

Talk is Cheap

I speak with folks all of the time that tell me that they have decided to really do this or that and while their voices sound sincere and full of determination they don’t realize for a second that I very seldom rely on what is said, more often than not I will watch their actions to figure out if they are committed or not.

A lot of people don’t know this, some of you do, but I market a network marketing opportunity. What? Haven’t been hit over the head with one of my strategic, hard sell marketing lines??? Ah, no you haven’t. As a matter of fact, chances are that you don’t have a clue as to which network marketing company I’m involved with at all. The reason? I haven’t invited you.

Successful People Take Action

While this may sound a bit pompous and even snobbish, I don’t tell everyone about my network marketing opportunity because I am not looking for folks that tell me how much that they want to make money, I don’t want “everyone” in my business rather, I look for people that send me emails and give me phone calls about my other “lead in” opportunities. I look for those that take the initiative and actions that show me that they are committed to really getting the information they need to become successful.

Sometimes I will not answer my phones and just see who calls back. Seem a bit ridiculous? It may be, but I can tell you this. When I do offer up my opportunity to folks, I KNOW without a doubt that they will give their all. Not everyone signs up, no problem, but those that do will not make a simple decision to get involved with my company, but they will commit to building their business as well – and they do.

Are You Going After Your Dreams or Is Your Show On?

So what type of person are you? Have you made a decision to succeed or have you made a commitment to your success? There is a huge difference and not only how you look at things or are perceived by me, but a difference in your behavior. A little tip for you here, making a commitment means that you get off of the TV and free up your schedule from any other activities that are “time wasters” and use that time to free yourself from the chains of economic slavery.

So, have you made your decision today or have you made a commitment to your success?

On the Lookout for Committed Business Builders

How many times have you heard someone tell you that they really want to build a business because they are tired of working for so and so company and their boss is a real jerk and they just want to go out and build a business so they can buy their freedom and have time to spend with their family and blah, blah, blah – only to have this person look at you and say something like, “Yeah, but Tuesdays I need to leave open because MY show is on!” What?

Look, business is business and I don’t care if you are building the newest and latest McDonald’s restaurant or the slickest cancer treatment center or a blog that you hope will set you apart from your competition, success never depends on making a decision to build a business, it requires you making a commitment to build your business.

If you don’t understand this concept, I can tell you that you have never built a successful business. I don’t care who you are. As soon as you lose your focus and stop committing to taking action in a consistent and persistent way towards achieving your business goals, it ain’t happening for you!

This may sound mean or whatever, I don’t really care, but until you stop beating around the bush and commit to your own success I’m not interested in helping you one single bit. It’s not fair to me, it’s sure as hell not fair to those that ARE committed and want to build something big and it’s not even fair to you.

The people that build businesses, that create large organizations are those that are willing to take the time and make the effort that other people aren’t willing to do. This isn’t a judgement either, I don’t care if you are interested in my business opportunity or not, that’s up to you, but once you make the decision to join my team I require a commitment from you to the team we are going to build together. I require a commitment from you when things are tough and your organization isn’t growing like you want it to. I require a commitment from you when things are great, you are making money, but someone on your team is struggling.

I am ALWAYS on the lookout for committed business builders and leaders. These are the folks I want to spend time with, these are the individuals I want my family to associate with and these are the folks that I am going to help and together we are going to build the largest and biggest organization ever known to network marketing. That’s why I’m on the lookout for committed business builders and if you are one I want to talk to you! If you are not willing to make that commitment, then go join someone else’s organization – I’m not intersted.
