Why won’t you like it.
Because it is going to tell you the truth, and some people don’t like the truth. Some people like to live in a fantasy world, and any thought of coming out of that fantasy world is ludicrous to them. Yet these are the same people who will badmouth an entire industry simply because they did not get rich overnight with that industry, and their lack of hard work, willpower, discipline, and perseverance.
Why the Overnight Success Mindset Can Doom You from the Beginning When It Comes to Multi Level Marketing Success
Here’s the problem with overnight success. It’s EXTREMELY RARE!
“But that doesn’t mean it can’t happen to me”…that’s what you’re thinking right?
Well it doesn’t mean that it can’t happen, but it does mean that it’s highly unlikely that will happen, which means that you’re setting yourself up for a lot of heartache and disappointment.
Now let’s think about this. If overnight success is rare, then what you’re essentially doing when relying on that concept is decreasing your odds of success by huge amounts.
On the other hand, smart work, hard work, and perseverance has been known to create tons of success. These three things combined can highly increase your odds of success. Sure it’s not as fast, it may not be as fun in the beginning, but it’s way more of a sure bet.
If that’s the case, why wouldn’t you take the sure bet? Why would you settle for the mindset that is almost is certain that you won’t make it, when you could just put in a little bit more time, a little more sweat, and utilize the way that was way more of a guarantee.
Let’s say for example if you had to get across a river. There are two places that you could cross.
One place to cross is really short. You could cross it in 10 minutes. However, that part of the river is FUILL of alligators, poisonous snakes, and hmmm…let’s say piranha. Have you ever seen a piranha. Ugly!! Oh by the way, 99.5% of the people who have ever tried to cross here are killed before they even get close to the other side. Odds are highly likely that you’re not going to survive.
But just down the way about 5 miles, is a spot that has none of those nasty creatures. The most that you’re going to run into on this crossing is maybe a few sharp rocks, and some shells that might hurt your feet a bit. Oh and there’s a bit of a tide so it’s going to take some struggle to get across. And it take about 1 hour to cross. But the people who cross here make it across 95% of the time. So your odds of getting across are very likely. Sure things could happen, and you might even have to try a couple of times, but the fact is that you’ve got a lot better of a chance.
It’s going to be harder, and it’s not a 10 minute crossing, but you’re also not going to be eaten by alligators, sharks, and/or pirahna. You saw the picture of the pirahna didn’t you?
So if you said that you’ll take the area that takes longer to cross, but the odds are better, then you’re like most sane people.
But if that’s the case, why wouldn’t you do the same thing when it comes to your multi level marketing success?
