It's said that every success story STARTS with a "WHY"... every successful person KNOWs their why!
Have you ever heard someone talk about what they do, and the passion they are speaking with, makes you wanna go out and do something great too? Well that is the side effect of KNOWING YOUR WHY!
Ever wonder why there are some people at the top of their Direct Sale business, and others that say it didn't "work" for them? I guarantee you, is the differences in the WHY! Now, yes, I just said success comes from knowing your why... and if both those folks have a why, why aren't both successful, right? Well, let me explain.
Your why should be something that can withstand. Your why is in your dreams, your every waking hour.... Say the fist consultants why, is it's their ONLY income. They have a passion for their product because the company gives to a certain organization that they believe in, the product is something they believe in, and they are excited about it. So... their why started FIRST... with a NEED... but was matched with a product that they also had passion for... that why will withstand! Take the second consultant.... their why was. I just want a way to have a little extra cash, I decided to start representing that business because the start up fee was nothing, and the items are really cheap - so I thought a lot of people would appreciate the good deals. When that second consultant approached a few family members, and they said no... her why went out the window, She didn't stay active, and she went on to something new, leaving a trail of excuses why it didn't work.
So what is the difference in the two Whys? The first one had a passion to meet her need, and met that need, with the passion of her product. The second consultant had no skin the game. She didn't really need to make the money, and she didn't have to invest in her product, and her only reason for selling that product, is the product was cheap. Do you see why the first consultant was successful and the other not?
Don't get me wrong - we have all started something and not finished it. We haven't all been successful in every little endeavor we started. There's some things we do, just to do them, not expecting success, I'm reaching for the heart of the listener, that is truly looking for the difference, seeking understand on what it takes to be different then the rest.
I love the quote by Mark Twain that says, "The two most important days in your life are, the day you were born, and the day you you find out why."
I want to encourage you to get still, find your why ... what is your passion? Then, find something that matches both of those, and I promise you will find success! Because when you TRULY know your why... it WON'T let you quit! It will spur a passion to work late, get up early, work ridiculous hours on little sleep - all the while, having passion and drive!
Find your why and you'll find your success and happiness!
