Summer Success Series: Cherish Your Coach!

Nothing can speed your path to success than a really good coach.   Someone who cares about your success.   Who’ll tell you the truth.   Who’ll give you wisdom.

Some of your coaches will be right there with you, in person, maybe even in your same company or business.

Others will be virtual — coaching you through their books, CDs, and DVDs.

You’ll need both to win.

One of the best and most impactful coaches ever is the now late, John Wooden.   After years of inspiring countless athletes, business people, and others to live with character and achieve their best, Coach John Wooden died on Friday evening at 99 years old.

Here are just 10 of his most famous quotes that have touched the lives and hearts of many:

Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.

You can’t let praise or criticism get to you. It’s a weakness to get caught up in either one.
You can’t live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you.
Success is never final, failure is never fatal. It’s courage that counts.
Consider the rights of others before your own feelings, and the feelings of others before your own rights.
Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.

Failure is not fatal, but failure to change might be.
It’s not so important who starts the game but who finishes it.

Coach Wooden also left us with the most amazing blessing — his Pyramid of Success.   I hope it blesses you as it has so many others:

Thank you, Coach Wooden for the legacy you’ve left behind.   We’ll do you proud!


Note:   I personally believe that it’s a leader’s responsibility to provide an environment where people can succeed.  My partners and I have made that commitment and have been providing that environment for years.   The success stories are great.   And we’re helping many right now to realize their highest levels of achievement ever.

Summer Success Series: Refuse To Accept Failure!

On May 29, 1953, Sir Edmund Hillary was the first man to climb Mount Everest.  It was the highest mountain then known to man — 29,000 feet straight up. He was knighted for his efforts. He even made American Express card commercials because of it!

What a great Success Story!   But when you read his book, High Adventure, you get the REST of the story….

In 1952, Sir Hillary attempted to climb Mount Everest, but failed. A few weeks later a group in England asked him to address its members. Hillary walked on stage to a thunderous applause. The audience was recognizing an attempt at greatness, but Edmund Hillary saw himself as a failure. He moved away from the microphone and walked to the edge of the platform. He made a fist and pointed at a picture of the mountain.

And what he said next, is the whole story:

He said in a loud voice, “Mount Everest, you beat me the first time, but I’ll beat you the next time because you’ve grown all you are going to grow… but I’m still growing!”  And he did.

There’s the lesson — keep growing.   Keep trying and keep growing.

This applies to life and business.   If you’ve experienced some level of defeat, fallen short of your goals, or flat out failed — the trick is to not give up.  Grow bigger than your challenge.  And then come back and WIN!

I find this especially true in network marketing.   We join this industry because we have the heart to win.    We choose a company.  And sometimes we fail.

We set a goal.  And sometimes we fail.

But the key to success is to Refuse To Accept Failure.   Don’t lie down in defeat.   GROW!  How?

1.  Seek Knowledge

This world is amazing!   Everything — and I do mean EVERYTHING — you ever need to know is in a book, on an audio, on a video.   And totally within your reach on Google, iTunes, somewhere in the public domain.   And much of it is FREE!

All it takes from us is EFFORT and TIME!   Will you put forth the EFFORT to seek out and obtain the knowledge?  Will you INVEST THE TIME necessary to consume it and apply it?

If so, you will grow!

2.  Seek Coaching

What’s the best way to get through a mine field?  FOLLOW SOMEONE!

The path to success is strewn with career-ending, psyche – destroying land mines.   And every day somebody’s getting BLOWN UP!   How do you get through?  Tap into the coaching of someone who’s made it through the mine field.   There are so many of us out there who are willing to share our experience — both positive and negative — with anyone who will listen, learn and apply.

All you have to do is Plug In.   That means value the coaching, cherish the relationship, and be accountable for your activity & productivity.

3.  Get M.A.D.:  That means Make A Decision.

Sir Edmund pumped his fist at Mount Everest and said, in essence, “I’ll Be Back!”  (Thanks Arnold)

I challenge you, pump your fist at this industry, the rank advancement or volume level that you missed last month, or whatever it is that beat you, and say with fiery passion, “I’ll Be Back!   And I’ll be BIGGER when I come so Watch Out!”

Refuse to Accept Failure!  Grow!   And WIN!

Winning: What’s it Take? – CONSISTENCY!

“The soft drops of rain pierce the hard Marble, many strokes overthrow the tallest oak.”

— John Lyly, Writer & Poet

Too many people underestimate the power of Consistency.   They get started on a diet, a workout program, or even a business — put a lot of energy into the beginning — and totally fall off a day or two, a week or two, a month or two later.   And it kills ’em.

Especially in building your network marketing business.   You’re most fired up at the start.   And those early calls to your friends, family, associates — those early seeds sown — are the beginning of your momentum.    Sometimes it doesn’t catch fire quickly.  But you’re still sowing seeds.   And what the top earners know is this — if you stay with it, you’ll reap the harvest that consistency brings.

Every time you quit your business … every time you “put it on hold”, “take a break”, or say, “I’ll just pick it up again next month”… you give it all back.  All of the momentum that you were building up towards.   All of the seeds that were just getting ready to pop.   You give it all back and put yourself on zero again.

And that’s so frustrating to people.   Starting over is like surgery without anesthesia.   It takes so much more effort than staying with it.   It would be so much better to just stay with it and do a little bit each day, than to put it down and do nothing at all for a season.

Remember, ‘the race does not belong to the swift — but to the one that endures to the end’.

So Consistency is the key.   How do you get consistent?

  1. Make a Decision — And commit to the outcome.
  2. Keep Your Eye on the Prize!  — It’ll will keep you moving forward.
  3. Have a Plan — Get with your coach to plan — even schedule — your activities.
  4. Remember the Pain — Don’t forget how painful starting over from zero is.  Then you won’t put yourself through that.

After all, much water wears the marble.    Drip water on the same spot of the same marble stone day after day, year after year, and it WILL wear a hole in the stone.  Why? Consistent pressure.

Sow seeds in your business day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year, and you WILL realize your dreams!

Having the right coach and the right support team can help you develop the consistency that will take you to the promised land.  If you’re looking for that kind of a support — combined with the right opportunity —  contact me immediately.   I’ve been looking over the past 2 years, and I finally found a support team that can help you be consistent and keep your car on the track!   And now I’ve teamed up with some of the industry’s most successful leaders to help mentor busy professionals in the consistent activities that will produce a solid income stream from their home-based business.

Who’s In Your Corner? (Pillar 5: The Team)

This week, the “lights” really came on for me.  I’ve had number of major “Ah-Hah” Moments.   All of them have to do with the Support Team.

Question: Would you learn to play basketball better if Michael Jordan himself would coach you?  I mean, yes, personal skill and talent are individual factors.   But would your “chances” of achieving YOUR highest potential improve if you had that kind of a coach?


But what if you had 2, 3, or 4 Michael Jordan’s coaching you?

Always available.

Always willing to analyze your game.

Always willing to throw on a pair of shorts and get on the court and help you with your jump shot?

A dream?

My reality.  And YOUR potential reality.

You want to make more money.  Maybe you just want a few hundred to a few thousand dollars a month.  Maybe you want a complete lifestyle change – tens of thousands a month.  Maybe you want legacy money – hundreds of thousands a month.

I’m just asking, “would your chances of success improve if you had a team of industry veterans and all-stars who were qualified, available, and willing to help you?”

Our Support Team is a “Dream Team”.   4 Michael Jordans.   4 Successful networking industry millionaires.

Michael Jordan #1: A multi-million dollar earning power couple.   Personal network marketing incomes that have reached close to $400K/month.  Have built large international organizations.   One of those groups has produced $1 Billion in sales revenue – literally.  They’re grounded.  Good parents.  Good people.

Michael Jordan #2: My vote for the network marketing Hall of Fame.  Has built 2 different organizations to over 1 million distributors.  Has been featured in Success Magazine.   Has earned the title “Millionaire Mentor” by creating so many throughout the industry.   Seasoned.   Calm.   But “don’t let the smooth taste fool ya” – there’s more wisdom here than you can imagine.  Quiet power.

Michael Jordan #3: 17 years with Unicity.  $12 Million + in earnings.  A true “Cross-Over” player with an impressive portfolio of “traditional” businesses – including 54 restaurants, a carwash, and an insurance agency.  Maturity.  Family values.  Well-rounded.  Learn how to build a business.   And learn how to build a life.

Michael Jordan #4: Close to $15M in earnings in the last 9 years.   Has earned in excess of $200M/month – all from home.   A marketing expert who knows how to make the phone ring and create qualified leads.  Take the shackles off.  Experience network marketing — and life — with no limitations and endless possibilities.  That’s what you’ll learn here.

I don’t know who’s coaching you today.  My experience has been that most people don’t have access to this type of successful mentorship, leadership, and assistance.

Either they’re not there.  Not available.  Not hungry anymore.   Not interested.   Or simply out for themselves.

It’s not just about having successful people in your upline.

I’ve had successful upline in the past that I couldn’t get to show up.  That wouldn’t return my calls for days on end.  That wouldn’t – and in some cases, couldn’t – help me.

I’ve even had successful upline in the past that was simply out for self.  Controlling.  Manipulative.   Even dangerous.

So this time, we “interviewed” upline – to make sure that we had the right support.

And we were led to this millionaire “Dream Team”.

They’re hard workers.  With diverse experience.  They’re still hungry to create more success.   They’re flexible and in the trenches working WITH you.

Most people would be hard pressed to find this kind of support.

They’d be even harder pressed to enroll it.

And it’s almost impossible to find 2 or 3 in the same upline.

But that’s what we’ve got here.

And this week, I’ve had personal coaching and mentoring from all 4 that’s already brought my game to a whole new level.

They can do the same for you.

And what would that do for YOUR chances of success?

[We’re done.  That was Pillar 5 of a 5 Pillars discussion of Unicity International.

I’ve done my part.    You now have all 5 Pillars – enough information to Make A Decision.

Yes or No.  In or Out.   It’s time for you to let me know.   Just do 1, 2, or 3

1 –            “Thanks for the 5 Pillars.   Unicity is my kind of opportunity.   I want to be a part of this.”

2 –           “This sounds good.   I have sincere questions.  Our conversations are going somewhere.  I would like to do this.”

3 –            “Thanks but no thanks.  This was good reading.   But it’s just not the deal for me.”

Any of those answers is good.   Just let me know.   You can post a comment to this blog identifying yourself as a 1, 2, or 3.

Or reply to the email I sent you if that’s how you got here.

If you’re a “1” or a “2”, tell me when and how to best reach you.   I’ll call you at that time, and we’ll get your “winning” started or your final questions answered.

If you’re a “3”, thanks for listening.   We’ll stay friends.  Occasionally we’ll check in with each other and keep the door open.

Now it’s your turn.  Nothing happens without action.   Take one.  Decide.]
