Whose Fault?

Posted on March 6th, 2014

Whose Fault?
Look in the mirror.
The reflection, you see.
That’s the person called me.
Me, that person I see,
Is the only one who can set me free.
If I fall short and play the blame game,
There’s only one person I can name,
And it’s that same person in the mirror’s frame.

Weeds in Every Garden

Every company, every opportunity has weeds, challenges and problems. Things that bother you. Perhaps it’s an up-line that’s not supporting you the way you’d like to be supported.  Perhaps there’s a challenge with one of the products. Perhaps you had to go through compensation changes. Perhaps there’s a negative person you don’t get along with . These are all weeds. In every company there are challenges. Sometimes we get the urge, we get frustrated and we hear about other companies who don’t have any weeds. All you see is that they are amazing! Its only because you don’t know about the weeds. Sometimes you’ll be tempted to jump because you want to go someplace where there are no weeds. Once you get here guess what you find? There are weeds there too! They might look different. They might have different roots, but there’s still a challenge. There’s going to  be challenges no matter where you go in network marketing. Ask any successful network marketer and they’ll tell you there were times in their career where they were so mad at their company so mad at the circumstances going on that they couldn’t see straight. But they stuck with it. They made it happen. Yes sometimes the weeds grow out of control and the company falls apart because no one is tending it the garden. Under stand that no matter where you go you’re going to be picking weeds. There will always be distractions and problems. Your job is to become bigger than the problems. Your job is to become the gardener, not just the complainer, because if you’re the complainer then guess what? You’re the weed.  Right? Be the Gardner that eradicates the weeds and builds the garden, nourishes the garden, supports the garden, support your organization. Doesn’t that make sense? There are weeds in every garden there’s no such thing as a weedless garden.
