Take your attention off what you are going to get. Focus on others. Focus on sharing the system and opportunity from a place of contribution and giving. Showing the business is about helping others to see how this system and opportunity will benefit THEM. Your income
is a RESULT of helping others get what THEY want. If you are not passionate about your product, you will get discouraged. People that are in
3-5 companies in 10 years are chasing the money. They are not committed to the cause or the product. When one gets committed to the cause, they lose themselves in the success of others. Discouragement is rare. Money is not the goal, it is the result. Your money is a direct manifestation of the VALUE that you create for others.
Focus on your mission and contribution to others and you will remain energized.
Most issues with discouragement happen when we focus on what we want and not on
our mission to serve others. Worrying about how much money you will make off someone places your
attention on you and not others. The energy of attraction happens once you focus on giving
and not getting. People pour into an organization that exudes the energy of giving and contribution.
Serve others with what they want and need and your needs will be taken care of. Fear of presenting
happens when we place attention on ourselves vs on others. Usually when we get shut down it’s because we are thinking about ourselves and not about the difference we can make in the lives of others. An explosion will occur in your business when you are 100% sending out the energy of contribution and giving. Showing the business many times a day happens because you are excited about how you can change the world through a worthy endeavor. Your money and promotions will be the result of your excitement, passion and commitment to others.
Think about it . . . you can only PURSUE one person at a time. But you can attract an unlimited # of people. There are things that repel and things that attract. Be someone that attracts vs someone that repels. Can you imagine a powerful magnet being dragged across a table that has metal shavings on it? What will happen? The shavings will follow the magnet and will be collected by it as it moves across the table. You want to be like the magnet. BUT the magnet needed to show up and it needed to move!
Let’s do a little experiment. If you are near FB go to the Official SendOutCards FB Page and respond with a comment to my post THINGS THAT REPEL . . . I’ll read some of the responses.
Now let’s flip it around. I’m going to post THINGS THAT ATTRACT . . . please respond with some things that you know attracts others and I will read some of those!
THE ENERGY OF ATTRACTION
I want you to tune in to the ENERGY of attraction. We can’t just sit at home on the couch watching TV and expect good things to come to us. We must put in the work. We must network, send out the texts, fill our calendars with appointments to show the business, show the business and ask. But the energy of attraction sets the stage for big things to come your way.
In your mind I want you to think of someone that has LOTS of people around them and someone that gets so many text messages, emails and phone calls that they barely can keep up. Everyone seems to want a piece of them. Now i want you to think of someone that is all alone . . . someone who has very few friends and not to many people want to be around them . . . .what’s the difference?
THE PERSON (team) IN HIGH DEMAND THE TENDS TO ATTRACT:
Has something to contribute
Has positive things and compliments to say about others.
Looks for ideas that will help others.
Is building something that others want to be part of
Is present with people (generously gives of their time)
THE PERSON (team – there is now team!) IN LOW DEMAND THAT TENDS TO REPEL:
Complains and whines consistently
Gossips about others.
Doesn’t come out much
Takes but doesn’t give much
We are not talking about mass recruiting or blasting things out to a lot of people all at the same time. And we certainly are not talking about convincing people that what we are doing is a good thing. Sales is not part of the equation. Attraction Marketing is not sales or convincing.
Attraction marketing happens because we are operating within the spirit of giving and the forces of nature are on our side. We let go of the outcome to the extent that their is nothing but a wide open space for people to step into because they are drawn to participate . . . AND NOT because you convinced them. Seeds of growth occur when we follow the principles of adding value, contribution, positive communication and giving without the expectation of what we are going to get in return. One positive act can lead to an avalanche of good when done in the spirit of giving. It doesn’t take much to create that tipping point when a whole bunch of people acting in the spirit of contribution come together for a common cause
I am reminded of the movie, “Pay it Forward”.
When 11-year-old Trevor McKinney begins 7th grade in Las Vegas, Nevada, his social studies teacher Eugene Simonet gives the class an assignment to devise and put into action a plan that will change the world for the better. Trevor’s plan is a charitable program based on the networking of good deeds. He calls his plan “pay it forward”, which means the recipient of a favor does a favor for three others rather than paying the favor back. However, it needs to be a major favor that the recipient cannot complete themselves.
Trevor does a favor for three people, asking each of them to “pay the favor forward” by doing favors for three other people, and so on, along a branching tree of good deeds. His first good deed is to let a homeless man named Jerry live in his garage, and Jerry pays the favor forward by doing car repairs for Trevor’s mother. Trevor’s efforts appear to fail when Jerry relapses into drug addiction, but Jerry pays his debt forward later by talking to a suicidal woman, who is about to jump off a bridge.
Meanwhile, Trevor’s mother Arlene confronts Eugene about Trevor’s project after discovering Jerry in their house. Trevor then selects Eugene as his next “pay it forward” target and tricks Eugene and Arlene into a romantic dinner date. This also appears to fail until Trevor and Arlene argue about her love for Ricky, her alcoholic ex-husband, and she slaps him in a fit of anger. The two adults are brought together again when Trevor runs away from home and Arlene asks Eugene to help her find him..
Trevor’s school assignment marks the beginning of the story’s chronology, but the opening scene in the film shows one of the later favors in the “pay it forward” tree, in which a man gives a car to Los Angeles journalist Chris Chandler. As the film proceeds, Chris traces the chain of favors back to its origin as Trevor’s school project.
Chris finally identifies Trevor as the originator of “pay it forward” and conducts a recorded interview in which Trevor describes his hopes and concerns for the project. Eugene, hearing Trevor’s words, realizes that he and Arlene should be together. As Eugene and Arlene reconcile with an embrace, Trevor notices his friend Adam being bullied by gangster-like children, as he has several times before. He pays it forward to Adam by rushing into the scene and fighting the bullies while Eugene and Arlene rush to stop him. When one of the bullies takes a switchblade out of his pocket, Trevor is stabbed in the abdomen and dies from his injuries. This news is reported on television as well as the fact that the movement is spreading across the country; Arlene and Eugene are soon visited by hundreds of people who have participated in or heard of the “Pay It Forward” movement by gathering in a vigil to pay Trevor their respects.
Eugene and Arlene sit on the couch mourning the death of Trevor while the news station plays in the background that “The Pay It Forward” movement is spreading across the United States and hundreds of people who have participated come out for Trevors Vigil in a line of traffic a mile long snaking up to their home in the neighborhood.
