I can’t Do IT….. It is difficult…

Share This:

Not that long ago I had a friend, who struggled with her belief in the industry, to share with me that network marketing is hard work.

Well from time to time, I have heard from people who are on the outside & it’s critics that the industry is a lot of –h-a-r-d w-o-r-k– and that it takes too long to see cash flow.

Well, the “hard work” part is accurate, for sure, and we should never deceive people about that — and that is ‘why’ the ultimate rewards can be so very high.

So, in a nutshell here is what I answered – Is network marketing difficult? Yes, and so is anything ‘else’ in life that’s worthwhile.

But let’s be honest – “how” difficult is it? – and, difficult in comparison to WHAT? What other options are ‘out there’ for personal business ownership that are easy to set up in?

H-e-r-e is what’s “difficult” – –

It is difficult …. when you tell your family that there is not enough money this Christmas to buy them what they want.

It is difficult – knowing the rust bucket we call a car is eating us alive in maintenance, but we cannot afford a new one…

It is difficult – to go to our annual performance review (job), and even though we have worked “hard” for another year, we come away “empty handed”…

It is difficult – knowing that we shop by “sticker”, rather than whether the garment “looks good” on us…

It is difficult – knowing that we married a wonderful person (our spouse), and promised them the world, and yet for the next 20 years, we look at “balancing the budget” and figuring out what “sacrifices” must be made…

It is difficult – always lowering our “dreams” to meet our “means”…

It is difficult – knowing that we have spent 30-40 years of our life working for someone else — only to realize that we will be retiring on 1/3 of what we cannot live on “today”…

It is difficult – knowing that the fish are biting this week — and we cannot drop what we’re doing and take our Dad fishing…

So – What are we going to do about it?  We have nasty habits about rationalizing, procrastinating and skirting important things, rather than ‘facing’ the issues. Too often we allow “others” –who do not pay our bills — who do not share our dreams — to direct “our” future!

Is network marketing “Really” so difficult after all? – Is it so ‘traumatic’ for us to tell people about our breakthrough products? Is it so ‘difficult’ for us to understand that if we “tell enough people” – and “work” this business “hard” – for a few years – that they might not have to ever confront some of the nasty alternatives — and that instead, we could create “choices” for ourselves?

By this time I was really on a roll and I ended the conversation this way ……..

Would you be willing to “work really hard” for next 3-4 years, so that you could be well on your way to putting our family in a more comfortable home? Would you be willing to “work really hard” for a year or two – so that you could send your children to college, chosen by “excellence” rather than one chosen by “price” (the same criteria we used for clothes shopping)??

Would you be willing?
