Network marketing success on the internet demands diligence be applied to everything you do. Diligence will ultimately bring you success yet you have to constantly be on guard to never let yourself be complacent and become lazy. The lazy person gets steamrolled. The diligent person drives the steamroller.
Diligence is the constant and earnest effort to accomplish what is undertaken;
persistent exertion of body or mind.
Certainly, one of the most important traits you must have in building a network marketing business is diligence. This is especially true because you are building an online internet business! Remember, it takes time to establish yourself in the “blog-a-sphere” so you have to develop your diligence and “muscle” or you will be miserable for sure!
Every word in the very definition of diligence speaks to the mind-set that one MUST have if your network marketing business is to be successful. Applying diligence in your business building steps will yield you results that exceed just building a successful business – diligence is a trait that can be applied to all your life situations.
“Stick to a task, ’til it sticks to you. Beginners are many, finishers are few.” Anonymous, as quoted in Small and Simple Things.” by Marjorie Pay Hinckley, Small and Simple Things
Our take on diligence is a simple one: Never Give Up!
If it were easy to build a network marketing business on the an internet, everyone would do it. If you don’t have the guts to persist, even in the face of family and friends telling you you are crazy, then your business life may be a short one indeed. You have to remain strong and be able to weather all the obstacles that will hit you in your business.
If you doubt, remember these stories that serve as examples of diligence (never giving up):
Perry had a rough childhood. He was physically and sexually abused growing up, got kicked out of high school, and tried to commit suicide twice—once as a preteen and again at 22. At 23 he moved to Atlanta and took up odd jobs as he started working on his stage career. In 1992 he wrote, produced, and starred in his first theater production, I Know I’ve Been Changed, somewhat informed by his difficult upbringing. Perry put all his savings into the show and it failed miserably; the run lasted just one weekend and only 30 people came to watch. He kept up with the production, working more odd jobs and often slept in his car to get by. Six years later, Perry finally broke through when, on its seventh run, the show became a success. He’s since gone on to have an extremely successful career as a director, writer, and actor. In fact, Perry was named Forbes’ highest paid man in entertainment in 2011.
When Carrey was 14 years old, his father lost his job, and his family hit rough times. They moved into a VW van on a relative’s lawn, and the young aspiring comedian—who was so dedicated to his craft that he mailed his resume to The Carroll Burnett Show just a few years earlier, at age 10—took an eight-hours-per-day factory job after school to help make ends meet. At age 15, Carrey, performed his comedy routine onstage for the first time—in a suit his mom made him—and totally bombed, but he was undeterred. The next year, at 16, he quit school to focus on comedy full time. He moved to LA shortly after, where he would park on Mulholland Drive every night and visualize his success. One of these nights he wrote himself a check for $10,000,000 for “Acting Services Rendered,” which he dated for Thanksgiving 1995. Just before that date, he hit his payday with Dumb and Dumber. He put the deteriorated check, which he’d kept in his wallet the whole time, in his father’s casket.
Colonel Harland Sanders was fired from a variety of jobs throughout his career before he first started cooking chicken in his roadside Shell Service Station in 1930, when he was 40 years old, during the Great Depression. His gas station didn’t actually have a restaurant, so he served diners in his attached personal living quarters. Over the next 10 years, he perfected his “Secret Recipe” and pressure fryer cooking method for his famous fried chicken and moved onto bigger locations. His chicken was even praised in the media by food critic Duncan Hines (yes, that Duncan Hines). However, as the interstate came through the Kentucky town where the Colonel’s restaurant was located in the 1950s, it took away important road traffic, and the Colonel was forced to close his business and retire, essentially broke. Worried about how he was going to survive off his meager $105 monthly pension check, he set out to find restaurants who would franchise his secret recipe—he wanted a nickel for each piece of chicken sold. He drove around, sleeping in his car, and was rejected more than 1,000 times before finally finding his first partner.
