We’ve all heard of people giving up network marketing because a task appears too hard or too complicated. Many of us quit often times, right before success shows up at our doorstep. It is human nature for most people to quit or “take a break” right at the moment when we are about to achieve the biggest breakthroughs of our lives.
If you are familiar with the iconic success book by Napoleon Hill, “Think And Grow Rich”, you might remember the story in that book about R.U. Darby who was an enthusiastic participant in the gold rush days many years ago and went to dig and grow rich.
After weeks of labor in Colorado, he discovered an ore of gold.
He needed machinery to bring the ore to the surface from deep in the mine. So, he quietly covered up the mine, went back to his home in Williamsburg, Maryland, told his relatives and a few neighbors of the “strike”. They got money together for the needed machinery, and had it shipped. Our intrepid miner returned to the mine and went to work.
The first car of ore was mined and shipped to a smelter. The returns proved they had one of the richest mines in Colorado! A few more cars of that ore would clear the debts. Then, would come the big killing in profits.
They set about earnestly digging, and hopes soared. Then, something happened – the vein of gold disappeared! They had come to the end of the rainbow, and the pot of gold was no longer there. They drilled on, desperately trying to pick up the vein again – all to no avail.
Finally, they decided to quit.
They sold the machinery to a junk man for a few hundred dollars, and took the train back home. The junk man called in a mining engineer to look at the mine and do a little calculating. The engineer advised that the project had failed because the owners were not familiar with “fault lines”. His calculations showed that the vein would be found just three feet from where the Darbys had stopped drilling! This is exactly where it was found!
Now that story has a morale you as a network marketing business owner that is easy to see – never quit, but the side story is also to seek expert network marketing business advice if you don’t know what you are doing in anything related to network marketing. This is never truer than in network marketing which is a massive tangle of blogs and videos, each location vying for leads and offering products to the entire world.
Yes, network marketing is a tough business, and demands a lot of writing and relationship skills, but persistent correct network marketing action will reward you with network marketing success in the form of permanent residual income if you will just never give up.
Oh,, the story of Mr.Darby was not over either. He went on to learn from his mistake and discovered that desire can be transmuted into gold. He discovered this after he went into the business of selling life insurance. Remembering that he lost a huge fortune because he stopped three feet from gold, Darby profited by the experience in his chosen work, by the simple method of saying to himself, “I stopped three feet from gold, but I never stop because men say “no’ when I ask them to buy insurance.
And sure enough, he made a very lucrative living by selling life insurance following this principle of not quitting.
So quoting from Napoleon Hill now: Before success comes in any man’s life, he is sure to meet with much temporary defeat, and, perhaps, some failure. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and most logical thing to do is to quit. That is exactly what the majority of men do.
More than five hundred of the most successful men this country has ever known told the author their greatest success came just one step beyond the point at which defeat had overtaken them. Failure is a trickster with a keen sense of irony and cunning. It takes great delight in tripping one when success is almost within reach.
So, here you are, reading this iconic story, trying to build a network marketing business and searching for the way to make your own network marketing “gold” (aka success). If you’ve seen our “ABOUT US” video, Melody and I tell the story of how we met and how we worked for years at the Amway network marketing business and lost a lot more money than we made. So, that temporary setback was just that to us – temporary.
We now know that our network marketing business“failure” was a lesson we had to absorb, so we could be “tempered” by the fires of temporary set-backs on the way to our current Internet-based network marketing success. All the tumblers have finally lined up for our current network marketing success and it is all because we didn’t quit, maintained a positive attitude and knew that the network marketing success and network marketing results we wanted were already in place – we merely had to reach out of our constricted minds, and grab them!
And grab them we did!
