When I started my business in January 2003 this quote and thought buried in my mind. Because I had zero experience in the business I was getting into, I had to identify 4 core beliefs that created a foundation to propel me through the learning curve dip this business requires.
- Product Belief – I personally saw life changing results, but in turn helped others transform
- Pay Plan Belief – I earned income immediately when I helped people transform. I earned even more income when I taught others to help people transform. I knew if I could make $12 from my first transaction, I could make $120, and in turn $1,200 and $12,000 and so on by helping more.
- Company Belief – The company values matched values I wanted in my life. The company financial stability and core business was in the booming wellness industry.
- Success System Belief – I saw proof that others who came before me had success, and those who started after me could have success. I didn’t have to reinvent the wheel. I could do this part time and build it like a real investment.
Going back to these core beliefs always gave me hope. They anchored me to the long term process this business requires to be successful. The personal growth and continued work on becoming a better leader and communicator takes time. I was in it for the long haul.
