Activity Matters Most
by Michael S. Clouse
Surveys have always fascinated me... Ask
a few hundred people how they feel about this or that,
and you can presumably understand the mindset of an
entire nation! Indeed, polls are conducted daily to
determine how we feel about politics, why we purchase
certain products, and even what we watch—or
don't watch—on TV.
All of this sampling got me thinking one
day about the
Network Marketing business we're in... For
example, if you were to survey those already in the business,
what would you ask them? What insights should they provide?
And could any of this gleaned information be valuable to you?
Consider the following, and you decide...
Years ago I discovered that those who are
deemed to be Masters in this "Networking thing" understand
three simple truths about the business. Although you might
hear these truths expressed somewhat differently from
to leader, the
underlying facts remain the same. For purposes
of our discussion, we'll refer to these truisms as,
"Network Marketing's Three Rules of Three."
1. Know The Business You're In
Network Marketing is
about three things:
a) Finding People to talk to—Prospecting.
b) Talking to the people you find—Presentation.
c) Teaching others to do the same—Duplication.
2. Understand The Rules
of how you present your business:
a) Some people decide to join—Some Will.
b) Some people decide not to join—Some Won't.
c) Some people decide not to decide—So What...
Get Better At The Game
everything in life is about who you become:
a) Work more on yourself than you do on your business.
b) Again, work more on yourself than you do on your business.
c) And again, work more on yourself than you do on your
I share this with you because for years
leaders have been
searching for a simple, highly duplicatable
MLM system that new distributors
could use to more quickly achieve
success. And the most interesting part is, I now believe we've
been overlooking the obvious for decades...
If it's true that in order to grow the
organization, we need to contact
people, involve them and teach them—and we do... If it's true
that Some Will, Some Won't, and So What are all good
things—and they are... And if we really need to be
working on ourselves—our
development—more than we work on the business... Well then,
what could possibly be this simple shortcut to success?
To find the answer, conduct your own personal poll.
Take your census of the top 25 successful
leaders in your company. Call them, text message them,
or e-mail them—whatever it takes for you to get together
long enough to ask three questions:
1) How were you introduced to
the business—audio recording, video presentation,
or through some event?
2) How would you describe the
skill-set of the person who sponsored you?
3) Once you were introduced to
the company, how long did it take to decide you
wanted to do this business?
And in case you're interested, here's
what I've discovered...
Question #1 could easily provide you with 25
different answers, especially if you ask which audio
recording, video presentation, or event they attended. Question #2 again,
will probably provide a plethora of answers from talented
to tolerable to terrible. Question #3 however, is the all-important
key to your survey.
Because what the answers to this third
question will reveal, are that leaders who make the most
money in our industry—regardless of how they were introduced,
and regardless of by whom—for some unexplained reason they
"got it" and they "got in" right away... Those who build the
largest organizations—same thing—they "got it" and they
"got in" right away. And best of all (pay close attention
here, because this is your simple shortcut to success) those
you have yet to meet, those unnamed individuals destined to
become leaders, they'll "get it" and "get in" right away
too—almost regardless of what you know, say, and do—if you
will just expose them to your business!
Imagine that! Activity matters most!
The beauty of this overlooked shortcut to
success is knowing that in the beginning what you lack in
skill, you can actually make up for with activity! Combine
that belief with a proven
for contacting new prospects,
and your company's next great "Triple Diamond Star Fleet
Commander" could easily be sponsored by you—again, regardless
of your current level of expertise!
Now I'm not suggesting that you skip
mastering "Network Marketing's Three Rules of Three." Quite the contrary. Just because those fortunate few
movers and shakers "got it" and "got in" right away, is
no reason to miss sponsoring the masses who want to know
everything about everything
before they're ready to begin...
Therefore, if you truly desire to prosper
long-term in this business, immediately begin to weave the
golden thread of activity throughout your business
tapestry—known to all successful leaders as "Network
Marketing's Three Rules of Three"—and not only will
you have an excellent chance of sponsoring that next
mega superstar—you'll be able to keep them.
So what are you waiting for? Get something
about your company—product, service, or opportunity—into
the hands of your friends, family, and business
associates right away....
All the best,
P.S. If you're looking for a proven systematic
approach to educate 'em sooner and keep 'em involved longer... First,
provide every prospect with Future Choice
to educate them about the Network Marketing industry.
Second, after they have sponsored in,
immediately offer every business-builder
Fifth Principle together with
Success to teach them the basics of the
business. Third, after your new business-builder
has been involved for 30 days or so, get them a
copy of Learning The Business
One Story At A Time to keep them focused on their future.
P.P.S. If you'd like to keep
more of those you sponsor, then use this system.
