What Gives a Man or Woman the right to lead?

What Gives a Man or Woman the right to lead?

The kind of Leader Others Want to Follow?

Being a leader isn’t gained by election or appointment, and having a position, title rank or degrees doesn’t qualify anyone to lead other people. No one can be given the right to lead, it can only be earned, and that takes time. It takes time to be worthy of followers. The key to becoming an effective leader is not to focus on making other people follow, but on making yourself the kind of person they want to follow. You must become someone others can trust to take them where they want to go.

The following guidelines will help you grow and prepare yourself to become that leader

1. Let go of your ego – the truly great leaders are not in leadership for personal gain, and they lead in order to serve other people.

2 Become a good follower first – To become an effective leader you have to become an effective follower first.

3 Build positive relationships – Leadership is influence, it’s by nature relational and people go along with people they know, like and trust.

4. Work with excellence – No one respects and follows mediocrity. People are looking for leaders with passion and vision, and know where they are going, and can show their followers the path to take them to success. Leaders who earn the right to lead give their all to what they do. They no t only bring their skills and talents, but also great passion and hard work.

5. Rely on discipline, not emotion – Leadership is often easy during the good times. It’s when you’re out of energy, and you don’t want to lead, that you earn your place as a leader. There are seasons in life, when leaders must choose between gearing up or giving up. To make it though these times, rely on the rock of discipline, not the shifting sand of emotion.

6. Making adding value your goal – Leaders help people to live better lives and reach their potential. That is the highest calling and the highest value of a leader.

7 Give your power away – your become a better leader by sharing whatever power you have. You’re meant to be a river, not a reservoir. If you use your power to empower others, your leadership will extend far beyond your grasp.

Top Earners never market their MLM Company up front!



I 100% guarantee you that ALL top network marketers are embracing a concept called "ATTRACTION MARKETING" because they know this little secret...
Your ideal prospects are looking for ONLY 1 of 2 things...

1. A LEADER (or team of leaders) who they feel they can benefit from


2. A SYSTEM they can utilize, learn from, implement and get results, and then have their teams duplicate.

Think about it. How many junk emails do you get on a daily basis that pitch the hottest & best new company with the never before seen hybrid comp plan, which pays out 500 levels deep that guarantees you get rich in 30 days?

Do you actually open those emails? They're incredibly annoying!

The reason you don't open these spammy emails is because why on earth would you ever start a business, ANY business, with a random stranger you just met who's pitching you their business before they even introduce themselves?! Traditional businesses aren't built this way.... Network Marketing is no different.
Well, this is EXACTLY what the 95% do on a daily basis, and then they wonder why they can't make any money or sign-up new distributors!


People work with leaders that they know, like, and trust, period.

You must also hold more VALUE than your prospect or they will find another leader to join who they feel they can benefit from. When I say "HOLD MORE VALUE THAN YOUR PROSPECT" you've got to bring something to the table!

Can you show your prospect how to generate leads? Can you show them how to make money? These are the 2 biggest things your prospects are going to be asking themselves when they find you, and if you can teach them how to generate leads (*or have a system that can*) and you can show them how to make money fast (*or have a system in place that will*) then you set yourself apart from the masses and YOU become irresistibly attractive.

What It Takes to Make It

What It Takes to Make It

By Randy Gage

August 14th, 2010

People often ask what it takes to be successful in Network Marketing. I have a short, simple answer…

All you got.

Fortunately it doesn’t take more than all you got. But it does take all you got. In fact, I’ll suggest this business will be the hardest one you’ll ever do, period.

And I’m qualified to make that statement. I’ve been president of the Chamber of Commerce, worked in the corporate world, run distribution companies, managed medical centers, launched HMO’s, started restaurants & clubs, Internet marketing, information entrepreneur, owned a hairstyling salon, and published a magazine. I’ve consulted with literally hundreds of other entrepreneurs in all kinds of businesses. And can assure you, Network Marketing is harder than all of them!


Quite a few reasons. First, the essence of the business is leadership development. Not an easy thing to learn. Or teach. This takes tremendous people skills.

Because of that, MLM requires large amounts of personal growth and self-development. And working on yourself is tough work!

Other businesses you can get by on just skill, just talent or just money. Here you need heart. Guts. And love.

With Network Marketing, you have to go all in. You can start it part-time, you can start it with a limited commitment, you can start it not even believing it will work.

But to succeed at it, at some point you’ll have to move from kindergarten to the big leagues. You’ll have to go from a night or two a week, to four or five nights a week. You’ll have to commit and you’ll have to develop belief.

Here’s why…

You can’t really get anyone into our business. It doesn’t work that way. You can only commit, develop that belief and become so passionate that people want to be a part of what you’re doing.

MLM is like golf. The only person you compete with is yourself. The enemy isn’t other companies. It’s not negative prospects. And it’s not government regulation, high prices, or backorders. The real enemy is your doubts and fears. It’s what’s between your ears.

Most people today doubt their beliefs and believe their doubts. You have to be different. And that means daily self-development. Keeping your dream in front of you. And making sure your dream is bigger than your fears.

Yeah, you can probably win a free cruise, get a bonus car and rake in some nice bonus checks. That would probably motivate you to go to a job every day. That would probably motivate you to do any one of those other businesses I named. But it’s probably not enough to get you to do Network Marketing.

Because our business is a lot tougher than those. Our business means contacting prospects, driving to work with long distance lines, and sacrificing lots of pleasures early on for the long term. It means really getting out of your comfort zone and growing.

So your dream has to be even bigger. It has to include other people’s dreams. Taking your eyes off of just yourself and looking how you can contribute in a meaningful way.

It’s going to mean facing rejection and maybe ridicule. Facing your fears. Dealing with dropouts and no shows. Negative publicity, misperceptions, and adversity.

We know every adversity has in it the seeds of a greater opportunity. But that opportunity is not automatic! It is there only if you make a conscious choice not to be a victim; a conscious choice to learn the lesson and find a new door to walk through. And remember, every room has a door.

Network Marketing is HARD. So why do it?

Because it will be the most rewarding business you ever do in your life. Yes it can give you those trips, car and bonus checks; it can get you free. But it also does so much more…

The confidence you develop, the skills you learn, the satisfaction you gain are priceless. Who you have to become to be successful in our business makes it all worth it.

And the joy that can only come from contribution…

When your new team member calls you screaming with excitement because they’ve sponsored their first person. The breakthroughs you witness when someone buys their first suit, makes their first presentation, or calls that prospect that scares them beyond measure. When one of your people conquers their fear in any way, it will bring you rewards you can’t get anywhere else.

In our business you reach success by helping other people reach success. That is what gets you up at 6 am to do self-development, that is what gets you to pick up the phone, that is what keeps you awake driving home at 2 am from a meeting for a new person on your tenth level.

So yeah, it doesn’t take more than you got. But it does take all you got. Just know it’s worth it.

So find someone you respect and make them a promise that you will do what it takes to win. Ask them to hold you accountable. Then make yourself the same promise. After that, make a public declaration below in the comments. Are you up for that?

Bookmark this and come back to it whenever the seed of doubt creeps in.

Start EVERY day with positive self-development. Don’t answer your phone, answer the door, or leave the house until your consciousness is vibrating at thermonuclear level. Look in the mirror and tell yourself you are worthy.

Then go out and be amazing!

7 Ways to Use Business Cards to Network and Market Your Business

You just had the finest, most eye-catching business cards. Now, what do you do with them? Networking with business cards is one of the most cost-effective means of marketing your business -- and yourself.

Don't leave them sitting in the box, they do you no good there. Get them into the hands of your prospects! If you think of your business card as a mini-billboard for your company, you'll realize that you need people to see it, in order for it to be effective. Here are a few ideas to get you started...

1) Keep them in your pocket, purse, briefcase, wallet, on your desk, and in the reception area of your office

Leave some in your car. Always have them on hand so you can introduce yourself to new people when the moment is right. They should be a necessary part of your routine before you leave home every day. When checking for your wallet and keys, check for a stack of business cards too. Keep replenishing your supply.

2) Store your cards in a nice holder so they don't get bent

Keeping your cards in a stylish business card case makes for a better presentation when you hand your cards out. Likewise, treat others' cards well when you accept them. For example, spend a few moments reading the card closely before you put it away. You won't impress the person by mishandling their business card. If your contact information should change, have new cards printed immediately. Writing in your new email address or phone number leaves a bad impression.

3) Place business cards on bulletin boards at local restaurants, supermarkets, libraries, and your children's schools

At your place of business, have a bulletin board where others can post their cards in return for passing out your cards to others. If you see a fishbowl offering a drawing for a prize, throw your business card in. Somebody important might see it and contact you.

4) Include business cards with all of your correspondence; including bills you pay

You never know who might open the mail that day. If realtors can sell houses this way, why can't you generate business the same way? If you ship products, for example, include a card with every package. Send business cards with all thank-you notes and letters you send out. Include your contact information in your email signature as well. It serves as an electronic business card.

5) Use them as scrap paper when you need to jot down a note

Instead of a napkin, use the back of your business card to write in your cell phone number. "This is my direct line," you might say, making the prospect feel important and giving him or her a reason to keep your card.

6) Give people a reason to hold on to your card

Print something unique on the back of it--a calendar, a list of your services, important measurements, or anything relevant to your industry.

7) Use your business cards to introduce yourself to prospects you meet at networking functions, in the park or at your children's soccer games.

However, don't be pushy. Make sure the time is appropriate. One way to do this is to ask for the other person's card. He or she will likely ask you for your card in return. Another idea is to hand out two or three cards at a time--one for the person you meet, and extras for him or her to hand out to referrals. (Offering to do the same would be the polite thing to do here). When you go to the doctor or dentist, present your card to the receptionist to announce your presence.

Leaving your business cards to sit in a box or a drawer collecting dust defeats the purpose of having them. They are inexpensive enough to print by the thousands, so hand them out liberally. It's a cost-effective way to market yourself and your business.

Visualize and Expect Success

Visualize and Expect Success - Denis Waitley

Our studies of high achievers have shown that no matter how different their personalities, work habits, occupations or gender, the people who accomplish great things in life have visualized and expected success all along. They’ve had the ability to vividly picture their achievements and to reassure themselves in the face of long odds that they would come through.

To visualize the person you want most to become, set aside some time this week in which you can create an atmosphere conducive to re-affirming your life dreams. You may want to be near the ocean, or a lake, or in a park, in a garden or in the woods. Or you might just sit quietly by yourself in a comfortable lounge or chair. Get yourself in the mood for visualizing. When the left hemisphere of the brain is quiet and relaxed, the mind is most receptive to creative inputs. To facilitate this you may want to use soothing recorded music, preferably slow and inspiring like Bach, Handel or Vivaldi if you like classical music, or soft, popular instrumentals from epic movies or other mood music.

Once you’re properly relaxed and optimistic, let your mind focus on who you really want to become. Visualize the future in two time frames: five years from now and ten years from now. First, design a day in your life five years from now. Who are you five years from now? Where are you professionally and geographically? On Monday mornings, where do you go?

What are you doing, seeing, feeling and thinking? Who are the people around you? What’s different about your life five years from now?

Next, project ahead ten years from today. Picture a film of your life at that time. Who is watching it with you? What dramatic moments are depicted by that film? What personal triumphs are revealed? What obstacles are courageously overcome?

Don’t be shy! The purpose of this exercise is to load visualized software in your mental computer. Just as a computer must be configured to accept specific materials, your mind must be prepared to accept the reality of your greater success. By introducing positive images of goal achievement, you’re preparing yourself to translate those goals into reality.

I especially like to visualize myself being introduced at a dinner in my honor. Maybe it’s the Coaches’ Hall of Fame! Don’t laugh! It could happen! The emcee comes to the microphone and reads the highlights of my life and adds some insights as to who I really am. What would the emcee be saying about you if such a dinner were held in your honor ten years from now? Devote a page in your journal to describing the things you would want said about you.

This visualization will put you on a path that leads to your future self that you vividly picture today!

The Winner's Circle by Denis Waitley

The Winner's Circle by Dr. Denis Waitley...a great article and found it appropriate it being the Olympics.

Every four years we see those five brilliant, interlocking Olympic rings on flags and in television and billboard advertising globally. The Olympic Games are where the best in the world go for the gold and the few stand, listening to their national anthem, in the coveted winner’s circle. If the five Olympic rings were attitudes of champions in every profession, these five attitudes would be prominent in the mindset of the peak performer:

Paying the Price.
Everyone wants to win, but few are willing to invest the time and effort. Paying the price means focusing on developing the skills and training regimen of champions—observation, imitation, repetition and the internalization of knowledge into habits; also, learning why and how to go the extra mile and seeing success as a marathon, not a dash. Champions view failures as temporary inconveniences and learning experiences.

The Olympian Within. Winners believe in their worth in advance of their performance. Most people base their worth on their current status or achievement level, which means that until they are judged successful by society’s standards, they have little to be proud of. Champions believe in their dreams when they have only a dream to hang on to, even in the face of criticism and superior achievements by others.

Non-situational Integrity. Authentic, lasting winners have an uncompromising attitude about self-honesty. They function according to an “integrity triangle,” consisting of three basic questions: (a) Are my beliefs based upon truth? (b) Do my words and actions correspond with truth and honesty? (c) Before I speak or act, do I honestly consider the impact of my decision on other people and the environment?

The “Coachability” Factor. Champions are always open to alternatives to improve their performance. Consistent winners are not the arrogant egotists who dominate the media spotlight. The most successful individuals in the game of life are often the most approachable, most gracious, least judgmental of others and most critical of their own performances, as well as most eager to learn and improve.

Being a Team Player.
A team in harmony is synergy in motion, where the whole is greater than the sum of the individual talents. When all assignments are understood, when each takes 100 percent responsibility for the outcome, a quantum leap in performance takes place. Winners learn how to become interdependent—without sacrificing individuality—and how to stand out, while fitting in.

Do you have the spirit, drive, coach ability factor and a great team to link up with to achieve your dreams?

If not, begin your education and join a network marketing community today by downloading and reading the Successin10Steps
