MLM Success Secret - Sowing Seeds for Success - by Michael Puskas

There is a wonderful parable that Jesus gave in the gospels that I would like to borrow and apply to network marketing.  It is the story of a sower who went forth to sow seed. 


As network marketers we are constantly sowing, at least that is what the great ones practice.  We sow the message of our awesome company, products and services.  We sow the word about how fantastic our compensations plan is and how you can make a great supplemental or full time income in our businesses.  We are willing to train and mentor our people, but here is the reality:


Some seed fell along the path.  These are they that hear what we have to offer and say, “Not for me.”  In your wildest dreams you cannot understand why they don’t see what you see.  Some people will just not get it.  They are closed-minded and seem content with working a job making someone else rich; even though they complain about it all the time.  You see these people, they could do much better, but just don’t get it!


Some seed fell on the rocky places.  These are the ones who get excited about what they hear and ask for more information.  They even say, “I am going to do this.”  You are sure they are going to become an associate and you send them what they asked for and never hear from them again.  They will not take or return your calls and you wonder, what happened?  Well, they probably talked to their spouse or other family members, a friend or someone who said, “Are you crazy!  That won’t work!  You have tried that before and failed!  They are just out to get your money!  Stick with your job, it’s safer!  I had a friend who tried that and failed!  That sounds like one of those pyramid schemes to me!”  And the hits keep coming.  All their excitement gets stripped away by “helpful, caring” people who just don’t get it.


Some seed fell among the thorns.  These are the ones who get excited; they jump on board and want to work the business.  They may even sponsor one or two themselves; then it happens, the excuses start pouring in.  They start missing the training and team calls, they seem to disappear.  When you call them they list all the reasons why they can’t continue.  Their dreams were choked by the worries and activities of life and before you know it, at best, they are just a consumer of your product, if you are fortunate enough to have one!


Are you discouraged yet?  I hope not, but if you are new to network marketing, you might feel like giving up now.  I believe that the main reason people give up is that they never had a big enough reason why they were going become a network marketer in the first place.  They had a hope or a wish, but not a dream so big and so strong that it would carry them through ANY disappointment.  Friend, if your reason for anything is not strong enough, you will fail!  That is just the way it is.  The good part is; there is one more ground that the seed fell on…


Some seed fell on the good ground where it produced 30, 60, 100 times more than what was sown.  You see, you sowed one seed in one person, but it produced 30, 60, 100, 1000 or more people in your organization!  I don’t know what the percentages are, but you can rest assure that there is good ground out there and they will more than compensate for all the others who produced very little or nothing from your sowing efforts.


The moral of the story is not to be among the losers who give up because they have let others dictate what their life should be like.  Not even Jesus let Peter deter Him from going to the cross to die for our sins when he attempted to keep the Lord from fulfilling His mission.  Don’t bury your talents and let your dreams be dashed by anyone.  You can do it, you can make it.  All you need is a dream big enough to sustain you through the tough times which will and must come.


Success is not for the weak at heart.  Success is granted at a cost.  Many think it is easy to be successful, but there is a price to pay.  However, once you pay the price, stick to your guns and charge like a Rhino toward your dreams; before you know it, you will be there! May this MLM success secret—Sowing Seeds for Success, be a blessing to you as you labor to make your dreams a reality.
