I’m a BIG NY Knicks fan, have been since the 70’s, and I have to admit that for much of the time this has been a hard team to root for. While the Knicks had a good run in the 90’s, unfortunately that was when Michael Jordan was in his prime so we never won the BIG one, I’ve experienced a LOT of losing. Recently, things have changed and are looking up for all Knicks fans thanks to “Linsanity”!
An unheralded and undrafted asian american point guard out of Harvard…
The most unlikely NBA success story. This 23 year old kid has come literally out of nowhere (technically, he came from the far end of the bench :)) and has captivated the entire sports world. The Knicks haven’t lost since he started playing 7 games ago and, more importantly, the franchise is relevant again and fun to watch.
How Can I Tie This Together?
So, I thought about how can I relate the Jeremy Lin “Story” to our network marketing industry? The truth is the Linsanity phenomenon has only happened because the kid persevered, would not take “NO” for an answer when nobody would give him a shot, and kept working to get better. These are EXACTLY the qualities you need to succeed in network marketing.
I mean, seriously, nobody was born to be a successful network marketer – particularly if you’re building online. Some people have a very charismatic personality and are “born salespeople” but 99% of us are not that way. We need to keep learning, hone our craft, and keep plugging away even if things may look bleak. We need to always keep our eye on our end goal and not stop until we get there.
Think about it…
When you joined your current biz op, did you think that you’d just start to magically make thousands of dollars and that you’d be plunking down cash to buy your first yacht within a year? You’d be jet-setting around the world? I know that the websites will have you believing that will be the case BUT seriously! I’m sorry if that’s what you thought. BUT, needless to say, reality has set in by now and you understand that it takes work and “getting your hands dirty” to become a successful entrepreneur.
What Are You Willing To Do For Your Network Marketing Business?
If you want to be the next “Jeremy Lin” of network marketing, you first need to know what your goals are and you also need to understand that you are actually “starting a business”. You need a “PLAN”. This industry is NOT rocket science, but it can be tricky. You need to learn how to generate leads, build relationships, and grow your business IF you want to play in the big leagues! Jeremy Lin kept plugging away honing his craft so he could be ready to perform on the BIG stage. Are you willing to do that?
