A while ago, a friend and mentor told me that I shouldn’t ever be afraid to contact anyone about our business.
She asked me, “Do you believe that the company offers superior value? Would you purchase the products even if there was no compensation plan? Do you believe that your life and the lives of those that you have introduced to this company are better because of it?”
After answering in the affirmative, she told me, “So you see, it’s not about you. It’s about helping others.” She also related that if I truly believed what I said I believed, I’d be doing others a disservice by not contacting them.
It made sense then. It makes sense now.
Don’t worry about who you can “get” for your business. Think about who you can help.
People like to be helped much more than they like to be “gotten”.
As I mentioned earlier, this week’s lesson touched me.
Paragraph 3: “We make money by making friends, and we enlarge our circle of friends by making money for them, by helping them, by being of service to them. The first law of success then is service, and this in turn is built on integrity and justice.”
Paragraph 5: “You can make a money magnet of yourself, but to do so you must first consider how you can make money for other people.”
Paragraph 6: “…it is just as essential to give as to get.”
Paragraph 7: “…the more we give the more we get.”
This is what excites me about partnering with a direct sales company. I succeed in proportion to the number of others I help to succeed. It’s a win/win situation.
I’ve heard a favorite quote by Zig Ziglar related a few different ways, but the gist of it is this: “You will get all you want in life if you help enough people get what they want.”
The MKMMA course has also taught me that I can not only help people to get what they want, but I can also help them to discover what they want.
Let’s all see who we can help today.
