A Business Like No Other…

new-mlm-companiesI think network marketing levels the playing field.

I could be wrong, it’s just my observation.

From my limited observation, businesses are handed over from generation to generation.

The only legacy I’ve seen being left the masses is poverty.

Some families are brought up with the option of aspiring to be business owner, while other families are sold the idea of becoming employees or self employed.

Asking the government to fix this in the form of land distribution, for instance, is as effective as the removal of our now current President from office.

But network marketing nullifies this dependent mindset.

The right one also offers you training and mentorship on how to succeed by also developing a business owner mindset.

But the best ones allow for your network marketing business to be passed on from generation to generation, just like these families I spoke of earlier.

With the right training to develop your skills, I believe anyone can succeed in what they put their minds to.

Multi level marketing included.

One of the hiccups I have with conventional business is the start up capital, amongst other uncertainties.

But obviously if you are committed enough and want it badly enough then you can find solutions around that.

I guess one chooses ones battles.

With me preferring minimum start up capital.

Minimal operational costs.

No overhead.picture2

With some part time but consistent work ethic, the results are predictable.

Results that can supplement my current salary.

Results that can be on par with my current salary.

Results that can eclipse my current salary.

A business like no other.

Look as a disclaimer, anything legit that allows you to make extra income is great.

Be it MLMs or another job or part time gig or strip joints.

I’m just talking about what I’m exposed to.

Do you due dilengece.

This working you way up to your salary month end only to start at zero the following month, is insane.

But most of us are doing it so it’s ok right?

I don’t think so.

Story Time

reading
It’s been a while.

Events of the past few months would have made for some pretty interesting posts.

Birthday things.

Sethu’s hilarious toddler mannerisms.

Small goals being reached and goals missed.

Social media breaks.

Friends being fired.

A growing business.

Relationship…disagreements and resolutions.

Work things and politics.

The list goes on.

The point.

Everyone has a story to tell.

It’s not a competition.

Sometimes writing things down makes you feel better.

There might be something in what you write that I might find helpful.

Who knows, maybe my prayers are going to be answered through your next blog update.

She does work in mysterious ways.

“You Are The Average Of The Top Five People You Spend Most Of Your Time With.” – Jim Rohn 

I don’t think you should deny yourself the release that comes from venting.

But don’t make it a habit.

Otherwise you will lose a lot of your blog readers that way.

Venting identifies the problem.

So now that you have IDed the problem, what’s the solution?

I read some where that some women vent to be heard, not that they are looking for a solution from you.

I think that’s weird, but then again men have a nothing box.

I think that’s weirder.

I’m going off topic again.

What I’m saying is that the things you put in your head will show in the kind of attitude you have.

If your head is in the gutter, then your attitude will stink.

Your attitude is something that might be hard to monitor with all the junk we are surrounded with.

From external influences like the news, TV and shitty friends and family who do more to pull you down than to lift you up.

The environment you’re in plays an important role in your thinking.

And I think, for the most part, you do have control over your environment.

Thank you.

I love you.

I’m sorry.

Please forgive me.

What Is The Purpose Of Life? Part III

I thank Mbalenhle Ndovela, my facebook friend, for the inspiration behind this post.

To experience more of the good things that life has to offer, one must surround herself with people that contribute, in one way or the other, to her personal growth.

These are friends who add value to your life and don’t make more withdrawals than deposits in your Emotional Bank Account.

(This “account” is a concept created by Dr. Stephen R. Covey which came to my attention in his book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.)

Surrounding yourself with anything else will limit your thinking instead of expanding it.

And a mind that expands will continue to do so especially one that seeks Truth.

Neale Donald Walsch touched on something, when I got a chance to listen to only a portion of his audio material where he was having Conversations with God, that in truth there are only two main emotions:

  • an emotion of love;
  • and an emotion of fear.

So in actuality we base our decision in either a sponsoring thought of Love or a sponsoring thought of Fear.

It is the latter that both my cousin, Nombali Ntuli, and me feel that most of us Thinking Beings favour the most.

Hence the condition the world is currently in.

It is from this “source of fear” that spawns out feelings of, as shown in The Secret DVD, of:

  • Depression;
  • Guilt;
  • Resentment;
  • Hatred;
  • Revenge;
  • Anger;
  • Criticism/ Blame;
  • Worry;
  • Annoyance;
  • and Boredom.

Feelings that Lisa Nichols says are “…those feelings that don’t make you feel empowered.

Whereas its complete opposite, a “source of Love“, blossoms out – in its contagious abundance, feelings of:

  • Satisfaction;
  • Hope;
  • Joyful Expectation;
  • Happiness/ Excitement;
  • Passion;
  • Joy;
  • and Gratitude.

In retrospect it was this emotion of fear that I was brought up with by two of my greatest teachers: both my mother and my father.

And if I were to receive Love, it would be conditional.

“If you don’t do this I won’t give you that,” for example.

Please don’t get me wrong, I am just trying to prove a point. I am not being ungrateful.

And Jack Canfield did mention “…about 85% of families are dysfunctional, so it’s like all of a sudden you aren’t so unique”

Then again how else could they have raised me either than the way THEY have been raised?

Therefore hanging with so called friends who propagate such fears with the way they perceive life, through their thoughts, actions, words and feelings would also influence my perception of life towards the negative.

With me stating that the purpose of life is for us to experience Joy, I don’t think surrounding myself with people who are down and are taking me down with them, with their attitude towards life, would be a smart move on my part.

And as for you, well that is something I wanted you to think about.

…As within, so without.
