Last blog was a rant. I admit it. I just get so sad and disappointed by people. All the time… why can’t they act the way I want them to?
I guess we all get let down, and I’m certain that I let people down too – I’m certainly not unique.
But it gets me to wondering, am I the one who’s crazy. Why are so many acting the opposite of what I believe is right and true?
Then I remember things like; there are probably 4 Billion people on the planet who think I’m nuts for believing what I believe. Some even hate me for it and would like to slit my throat of they had the chance. And I certainly abhor alot of the things that happen in this world that others believe is right and good.
So then I think, “OK so I’m not crazy, we just don’t all agree.” Well on some things I just can’t buy that, I just can’t.
Dishonesty in business for instance. Yes I know it’s Pollyanna to think that all business people will be honest.
There is one great Network Marketing Skill, life skill really, that may help if you struggle with this as I do.
I figured out a long time ago that people don’t act the way I do. It was a hard lesson for me. Alot of us believe that others will behave the way we will.
Liars think everyone lies. Untrustworthy people don’t trust anyone. Nice people think everyone is nice. Honest people believe others are honest. Take note of this in life it will help you to know who is who.
Just because I believe that lying to prospects, and worse teaching your reps to lie, and not helping your new people is despicable doesn’t mean that others believe that too.
Just because I think it’s wrong to lie because you’re lazy doesn’t mean everyone thinks that’s bad. Some people can convince themselves that it’s OK to do that – I don’t know maybe they have resentments and justify their behavior. I’m sure I have done that in the past.
There’s this quote in the Bible, “The slothful man saith there is a lion in the street who will destroy him” So he’s lazy and uses fake excuses so he doesn’t have to step out. There is no lion out there you’re just too lazy to get up off the couch, stop watching Housewives and do something useful with your friggin life!!
It’s is impossible for me to get past the laziness and lack of integrity in our industry today. And that’s ironic because my wonderful husband Mark Januszewski is “The World’s Laziest Networker“. He got that handle not because he’s lazy but because he always worked his Network Marketing biz in 16 hours a week or less – FULL TIME. That’s because he know the right way to do it, and that’s what we’re trying to teach people with Go90Grow. Network Marketing Skills!
Like Billy Bean knows how to run a baseball team with one of the smallest budgets in the MLB. He has the skills that are contrary to most in his industry, like my husband. Oakland on top AGAIN! I digress….
I look online and I see all these fake leaders and gurus who never did anything, or hit it big once a long, long time ago. They are selling junk. The thing that really gets me is that if you just scrape a little of the top you can see that they are not telling you the truth – and no one bothers to ask, “Hey, what have you done lately?”
Sure some made money, but when and how? Most don’t have a clue what they are doing and hit it right. Good for them I say, I wish it happened for me that way. We had to build brick by brick, everytime. We didn’t bring anyone with us when we went to a new company. There is no integrity in that! Do me a favor please look at someone before you give them your hard earned money or follow them into the “Next Billion Dollar Company” but we’ve been over that already.
There’s reps saying they’re “icons” and made like a gizaillion. Well good for you, but it was 10, 20 or 30 or more years ago and never build anything since leaving the company. And tell me this, if they’re were making so much $$ why did they leave – and where’s the gizallion?! Why are they building another company or selling something if they made all that dough? I believe these are fair questions and there may be some out there who have good answers but I haven’t found one yet.
And another “icon” who has a new book, system and philosophy every 6 months or so and tons of people fall for it – they buy this crap when the thing he sold before it didn’t work!!!
Why doesn’t anyone ask these simple questions?
Why do people continue to do things that don’t work, why do they continue to behave the same why when it doesn’t make them happy???
Einstein and Thoreau said the two things that explain some of it for me:
Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.
The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.
So all I can do is set a good example and try not to be insane, live with integrity and mostly try not to hurt others when I’m mad at them!
Mahalo & Aloha,
