Is there a road map to success? Do those who achieve great success follow a very defined and specific path to success? If that is the case, why is it so difficult for others to replicate it? These and other questions are addressed in The Millionaire Master Plan – A 6-Step Formula for Success in Any Profession.
Abridged version of The Millionaire Master Plan:
Professionals are compensated; amateurs are not.
I’ve always been perplexed by the fact that so many people refuse to go pro. Individuals in all fields, particularly sales, appear to forget to engage in activities that generate wealth or cash flow. As with golf, millions participate in amateur activities and only a select few earn the big bucks. The distinction is that in Network Marketing, regardless of experience, talent, or practise, anyone can choose to be a professional. Many people continue to shun professional networking. It’s more convenient to be an amateur. Regrettably, amateurs are not compensated. I have never come across a company in this field, or in any sales industry, that rewards employees for anything other than selling a product or service or recruiting others to do so.
Professionals do what is financially viable, while amateurs do everything else. Individuals from all over the world who are enraged by my failure contact me. Typically, they’ve read one of my books and seek assistance in determining the root causes of their failure. They generally begin by recounting their activities, and I listen as they recount a litany of amateur endeavours. After they’ve finished telling their stories, I simply ask them how many people they asked to buy their product that day or how many people they attempted to recruit for their frontline. Many have excellent justifications for having done neither, and some appear irritated that I would pose such questions.
I’ve got some fantastic news for everyone. To earn substantial checks, you need only to devote a brief amount of time each day to professional activities. It should take no more than two hours. That is approximately how much golf Tiger Woods plays in professional tournaments. On average, he spends approximately two hours per day, ten months per year, engaged in professional play. Each day, those two hours of professionalism generate all of his revenue, including endorsements off the course. Indeed, if he played amateur golf for ten hours a day, twelve months a year, he would not earn the big bucks.
Therefore, please pay attention. No one is compensated in our industry for visiting with upline leaders. Nobody is compensated for attending mixers, watching television, meeting with cross-line distributors or business associates, surfing the web, playing video games, or walking their dogs. None of us is compensated for our amateur activities. Professionals spend a couple of hours each day doing two things, and during those two hours, they cover as much ground as possible. Professional networkers spend two hours per day selling and recruiting, whether in person or over the phone.
We cover shotgun recruiting strategies that actually work in one of the 24 High Road to Success Modules. However, suffice it to say that you should be a professional for two hours per day. Dare to approach new prospects and invite them to purchase your products or become business associates.
