Beginning with the End
Dare to Dream
You know your dreams and you have set your goals, but how in the world do you get there? It starts by beginning with the end in mind and build a roadmap to get you there.
So how do you develop this map? The clue is in Stephen Cove's quote: you must have the end in mind. If you don't have your eye's on the prize, you'll wonder aimlessly...no direction, no chance for success, just relying on luck to bring success to you.
So what is your dream? To be debt free? Let's start with that.
Start your roadmap with the end goal: the amount of money you need to make to get out of debt. Let's start with $50,000. Divide by 12 and you are looking at a little less than $4,200 a month. Seem a little daunting? Yes. Especially if you are just starting out.
So let's start small and focus on just the monthly goals. If you work your direct sales business part time, you should be more than able to make $100 in your first month. In fact, this is really low considering that most companies I've seen have quick start bonuses that far exceed this.
The key to network marketing is duplication. The people you recruit in your first month need to be able to duplicate your system. With their duplication activities as well as your own, do you think it's unreasonable to make $200 in your second month? How about duplicating those efforts in month number three?
This is the compound effect of the duplication system. You are not doing twice as much work in each month...what you are doing is building an organization who's collective efforts creates residual income...a system that doubles itself with just a little work.
Using this example, you would have generated over $51,000 in nine months. The key is consistency and duplication.
