What Do You Think?
There’s an old phrase that I heard years ago., I don’t know who the author of this quote is but it stuck with me all this time.
The quote I’m referring to is “Yell to the world what you’re going to do, but first do it.” This quote can mean a lot of different things depending on how you read it personally. Now, have you ever been around certain people who always talks about what they did in the past as if to brag on their past accomplishments? Then you fast forward to today and they have absolutely nothing going on but keeps reminding everyone how great they use to be.
Now I don’t want you to think I’m hating. Let’s keep this in perspective. I can applaud and appreciate any one’s previous successes. In fact, I love to hear about them – that gives me motivation. It’s the manner in which you do it that is key here. Are you doing this tastefully, or are you turning everyone off to the point that people purposely avoid you?
That above phrase to me means, Hit that big goal first, then share it with us and we’ll help you pat yourself on the back. You cannot tell us all these lofty goals you have when even you know you’re sitting at home watching the court TV, and not making any follow up calls. Heck, you’re not even prospecting consistently. So save it! Put up or Shut up!
As Mark Yarnell says, “The proof is in the printout.” You’ll find that phrase and ton’s of other can’t miss information in his book titled – “Your First Year in Network Marketing”
OK, before you jump all over my case, all the characters in this blog post that you just put a face to :o) are all fictional. This blog was written as a subtle reminder to myself and as a wake up call to others that needed to be reminded as well to First “Do It” then, celebrate. Because when you win, the team wins and we will cheer you onto the finish line as loud as we can.
P.S. I would encourage you to suggest this book to every new person you sponsor onto your team. Ray Higdon the number one income earner in his primary company also suggests that too.
