“…People who have the will to succeed… will succeed… regardless of the circumstances.”
~ Mark Yarnell, (Your First Year in Network Marketing)
What are YOU doing with those precious 24 hours that you’ve been given, each day? Do YOU have your sights set high? Do YOU want to accomplish something monumental? Or how about something small? The fact is that everyone is engaged in many activities, each day, where we have an end-goal in mind, whether large or small.
Think of that! How many little successes do we have each and every day?! If we work hard filling our days with frequent, effective actions, then we are on the path to success. I love the simple, logical path of rationale that Wallace D. Wattles shares on this matter in his book, The Science of Getting Rich. I’ve quoted an excerpt from that book, at the end of this post.
Do you have the will to succeed at what you’re doing? If you’re doing Network Marketing, what if you get a front line of 10 people in your first month and then you’re down to having only 1 person in your second month? That is not the “success” you imagined when getting into this industry! So what would you do? Would you quit? Or do you have the WILL to succeed?
The beautiful thing about building a Plexus business is that you have a community, like this, with tools, resources, and even courses that will teach you new skills and provide the help and support you need, in order to find success! But as we all know… you can lead a horse to water… but you can’t make it drink! We can provide all the tools and the recipes for success… but if a struggling network marketer does not see the need to follow the recipes of success, or they simply choose not to use them, then they have made their choice. They do not have the will to succeed… therefore, they likely will not succeed.
There will be a lot of roadblocks and friction on your road to success, but if you have the will to succeed, no matter what, then YOU WILL SUCCEED!
It is really not the number of things you do, but the EFFICIENCY of each separate action that counts.
Every act is, in itself, either a success or a failure.
Every act is, in itself, either effective or inefficient.
Every inefficient act is a failure, and if you spend your life in doing inefficient acts, your whole life will be a failure.
The more things you do, the worse for you, if all your acts are inefficient ones.
On the other hand, every efficient act is a success in itself, and if every act of your life is an efficient one, your whole life MUST be a success.
The cause of failure is doing too many things in an inefficient manner, and not doing enough things in an efficient manner.
You will see that it is a self-evident proposition that if you do not do any inefficient acts, and if you do a sufficient number of efficient acts, you will become rich. If, now, it is possible for you to make each act an efficient one, you see again that the getting of riches is reduced to an exact science, like mathematics. The matter turns, then, on the questions whether you can make each separate act a success in itself. And this you can certainly do. You can make each act a success, because ALL Power is working with you; and ALL Power cannot fail. Power is at your service; and to make each act efficient you have only to put power into it.
Every action is either strong or weak; and when every one is strong, you are acting in the Certain Way which will make you rich. Every act can be made strong and efficient by holding your vision while you are doing it, and putting the whole power of your FAITH and PURPOSE into it.
It is at this point that the people fail who separate mental power from personal action. They use the power of mind in one place and at one time, and they act in another pace and at another time. So their acts are not successful in themselves; too many of them are inefficient. But if ALL Power goes into every act, no matter how commonplace, every act will be a success in itself; and as in the nature of things every success opens the way to other successes, your progress toward what you want, and the progress of what you want toward you, will become increasingly rapid.
Remember that successful action is cumulative in its results. Since the desire for more life is inherent in all things, when a man begins to move toward larger life more things attach themselves to him, and the influence of his desire is multiplied.
Do, every day, all that you can do that day, and do each act in an efficient manner.
