The Pursuit of Happiness in Network Marketing - by Michael Puskas

I just finished watching the Pursuit of Happyness for about the third time.  You may ask why a busy guy like me takes time to watch movies, especially multiple times!  I watched this particular one and recommend it to fellow network marketers because it depicts what a dream combined with a positive mental attitude and determination can do for a person.


The movie (based on a true story) starts out with Chris Gardner (Will Smith) who had a dream of making it big in his own business selling bone scanner machines.  He pre-purchased several machines (exhausting his savings) with a belief that he would become rich selling this new cutting edge technology.  These machines were better than X-rays, but many physicians thought that they were too costly for the slight difference that they made. However, this did not stop Chris from beating the pavement every day in the “pursuit of happiness.”  He hit the streets every single day with the belief that he would sell the machines once doctors saw how they worked…it was a hard sell for the most part.  Because of his “seeming” failure his relationship with his wife was stressed, to say the least.


One day Chris was walking in front of an office building in downtown San Francisco and a man pulled up in a very expensive sports car.  This caught Chris’ eye and he asked the man what he did to earn enough money to drive something like that!  The man told him that he was a stock broker.  That started Chris dreaming of a better life as a stock broker.  In other words, he saw what one man did and realized that he could duplicate it to have the same success.


Chris had a dream and a positive mental attitude with determination, however his wife did not.  As a result she left Chris and her son. Through a lot of twists and turns, defeats (mainly) and triumphs, Chris’ dream became a reality.  He became a stock broker for Dean Witter, after a six-month apprenticeship which paid nothing!  He eventually became a partner in his own company and ultimately sold his share in a multi-million dollar deal just last year!  This was a true rags-to-riches story.


Why am I sharing this? Because in it is a lesson for all of us network marketers.  You must have a dream, positive mental attitude and determination to have any amount of GREAT success.  At first it seems that the deck is stacked against the person in the “pursuit of happiness,” but once you have a major breakthrough the pendulum begins to swing in your favor and success just flows!  This has been true of anyone that has had tremendous success; history is full such evidence. 


Therefore, I would recommend that your get a copy of the movie and watch it.  It is an excellent true story and will inspire you to keep on keeping on until your dreams come true.  Just watch the Pursuit of Happyness and you will see what I mean.
