Time to Laugh: Dog For Sale!

How about a walk on the lighter side of life today…

A guy is driving around the back woods of Montana and he sees a sign in front of a broken down shanty-style house:

‘Talking Dog for Sale’

He rings the bell and the owner appears and tells him the dog is in the backyard.

The guy goes into the backyard and sees a nice looking Labrador retriever sitting there.

‘You talk?’ he asks.

‘Yep,’ the Lab replies.

After the guy recovers from the shock of hearing a dog talk, he says ‘So, what’s your story?’

The Lab looks up and says, ‘Well, I discovered that I could talk when I was pretty young..

I wanted to help the government, so I told the CIA.

In no time at all they had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders, because no one figured a dog would be eavesdropping.’

‘I was one of their most valuable spies for eight years running…

But the jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn’t getting any younger so I decided to settle down.

I signed up for a job at the airport to do some undercover security, wandering near suspicious characters and listening in.
I uncovered some incredible dealings and was awarded a batch of medals.’

‘I got married, had a mess of puppies, and now I’m just retired.’

The guy is amazed. He goes back in and asks the owner what he wants for the dog.

‘Ten dollars,’ the guy says.

‘Ten dollars? This dog is amazing! Why on earth are you selling him so cheap?’

‘Because he’s a liar. He never did any of that stuff.

Made you laugh!

Winning: What’s it Take? – WAKE UP!

Don’t read this if you want to feel good about your job!

2 brothers get hired by villagers to carry water from the river to the village.   They get paid $1 per bucket.   And all day they go back and forth carrying buckets of water to the village.

Pablo realizes quickly that this is a grind.   His brother thinks he’s made the big time.

So Pablo WAKES UP!   He recognizes that he’ll only get paid for as long as he can haul buckets.  And already his back hurts, his hands hurt.   To make matters worse, it’s blazing HOT!  And he can’t take a break, because he gets paid by the bucket.

But what if he built a pipeline from the river to the village?  What if he get the water to just flow continually into the village and have the villagers pay him by the gallon?

His brother couldn’t see it — told him he was crazy — and poo poo’d all over his dream.

But Pablo went to work on it anyway.   When he finished his day of hauling buckets, he would put in a few hours on the pipeline.

It was hard work.   It took a long time – more than a year.   His brother laughed at him and flaunted all of bucket hauling money in Pablo’s face.

But Pablo stayed the course.   He was AWAKE.  He realized that long-term gain was worth a little short term pain.

In time, Pablo finished building the pipeline.   The villagers were ecstatic and paid him very well for every gallon that flowed.

Because he held to his vision … because he didn’t quit … now Pablo was getting paid more than any villager imagined they could every make — without lifting a finger!  He was getting paid today — and would get paid tomorrow — on YESTERDAY’S work!   Better yet — his kids and grandkids would continue to get paid on the pipeline he built long after he was gone!**

What’s it take to win in network marketing?   First you’ve gotta Wake Up!

Trading time for money is a grind.   Traditional jobs don’t pay a residual.   When you can’t work — when you can no longer haul buckets — the money stops flowing.  When your “back” and “hands” hurt … too bad, keep hauling.  And what’s in your future — more buckets!  Think about that during your next commute…

Traditional jobs are not “safe, guaranteed money” as your mother would like you to think!   If Pablo didn’t build the pipeline, he and his brother would eventually have been replaced by some younger guys who could haul more buckets — faster and for less money.  Then what?  Can you say “downsizing”, “work force reduction”, “layoffs”?

Seriously people, I like Robert Kiyosaki’s perspective — jobs are for a season.  They’re purpose is to fund your business.

So what’s it really take to WIN in network marketing?   Step 1 is you’ve gotta wake up.   You’ve gotta realize that it’s the best way for you to build a pipeline that will pay your family for generations.  After all, which would you prefer — a weekly paycheck that’s not even close to what you’re really worth? Or one of these…Thought so.   That flowing faucet is what residual income is like for those that, like Pablo, stick it out and finish the pipeline.   Nice, huh?  You REALLY need a pipeline!

Let’s kick this around some more this week.   Today was very fundamental.   Tomorrow we’ll get even more specific about what it takes to WIN and WIN BIG!

See you then!
