Summer Success Series: Failure Isn’t Final!

Missed me?  Hope you enjoyed your 4th of July weekend!  Let’s jump back into our Summer Success Series with a very important topic … FAILURE!

A friend of mine who’s considering getting involved with my networking business asked me a question this weekend,

“What does the average person make in your business?”

And he was shocked by my answer …. “NOTHING!”

I explained that Average People come into the business with Average People Habits and Average People Work Ethic and Average People Dedication.   This makes them do Average People Things — in spite of the fact that they’re receiving direction from Above Average coaches.

So as soon as they experience a “failure” — a setback, someone says no — or worse, gives them a hard time — what do they do?  They Quit!

Unfortunately, this is true on a widespread basis.   For the masses, Failure is indeed Final.    They’ll step out and give their own achievement one half-hearted try, experience failure, and pull back into their shell like a turtle.

Don’t wanna be “Average”?   Know in your heart and soul that you’ve got GREATNESS welling up inside you?   Ready to break out and truly be ALL that you can be?

Here are some quick words of wisdom:

‘Successful Millionaires have had on average 10 Failed Businesses on their way to Ultimate Success…’ — Rich Dad  (Robert Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad Poor Dad)

Ok, so you don’t actually have to fail 10 times.    You just have to be willing to.  You can’t be willing to succeed ONLY IF IT’S EASY!   You’ve gotta be willing to walk the tough road.   Like a woman who wants to joy of motherhood, you have to be willing to go through 9 months of pregnancy!  After all …

“…throughout human history, The Promised Land has ALWAYS been on the OTHER side of the Wilderness!” — Richard Flint

There’s no Success without Struggle, people.   It’s part of what makes the success SWEET!   You won’t win ALL of the battles on the way to your ultimate victory.   But as long as you keep getting back up, you have another shot at the BIG WIN!

If you follow me on Facebook, you saw this yesterday…

“Greatness lives on the edge of Destruction.” — Will Smith, on Oprah

Exactly, Will!   There’s no Reward without the Risk! You’ve gotta put it out there — put yourself out there — in order to achieve the reward worth having!

The late great, Jim Rohn, cracks me up when he says if you run down an empty football field and cross the goal line, THAT’S NOT A TOUCHDOWN! Like Jim says, “You’ve gotta have the 300 Pounders” trying to squash you in order for it to mean something!

It’s only when you’ve put it all out there … stepped out of your comfort zone … risked it all … and stayed in the game despite failures … that you can score life’s biggest victories!

So if you’ve scraped your knees and been knocked down on the battlefield of life …

… GET UP! 

Failure isn’t Final unless you decide that it is.

You’ve got Greatness in you!  Keep pressing on toward your dream and let’s realize that Greatness together!



5-Month Update: It’s been 5 months since we started our new business and it’s turned out to be everything we expected and more.   We’ve got all sorts of people winning at different levels.   Like my friend, Junelle — a 79-year old grandma in Farm Country, Texas — who’s earned $10,000+ in her first 4 months.

Making Life Better – Real UPside

“He who refuses to embrace a unique opportunity loses the prize as surely as if he had failed.”

William James (American Philosopher and Psychologist)

… and Unicity truly is a Unique Opportunity!

There’s something in each of us that want to be first.  To time it just right.    To get in on the next big thing just before everyone else does.  To be telling the story of being in the right place at the right time to our grandkids as how we created the family wealth.

Unfortunately, being first — being early — being on the cutting edge — can also be very risky.

In business in general, 85% of NEW companies go out of business in the 1st 5 years.    And 85% of the survivors go out of business in the next 5.

And the failure rate for NEW companies is even bigger in network marketing!

Check out these numbers:


That’s the number of networking marketing/direct sales companies that have been started since 1950…


That’s the VERY SMALL number of network marketing/direct sales companies that have achieved the critical mass stage of $100 million/year in Sales


Those are YOUR chances of picking a winner from all the “great sounding” NEW companies that pop up every year.

1 – 3 years

That’s how often you’ll be starting over if you don’t use your “business” brain to cut through the hype and evaluate opportunity rationally.

What are you into NOW?!!

That’s what your friends, family, and associates will be saying when you’re approaching them with yet another new deal that’s the greatest idea since sliced bread!

When I thought about this, I woke up!  I started using my professionally trained business development mind to help me make the right choice.   And after digging for a minute, I found it ….

…. Real Upside!

Like William James says in the opening quote, Unicity represents “Unique Opportunity”.

A solid business choice …

Unicity’s 18 years old and in the exclusive $200 Million/year club.   30 countries.   20 people over $100,000/month already.

That’s a strong business. Not going anywhere.  Established.   Low-risk.

Unfortunately, that often = BORING.   DONE!   LOW-UPSIDE.

But that’s when the Real opportunity crystallized:

… with Major UPside Potential!

Unicity’s business is strongest in Korea, Thailand, and Germany.

North America — The United States, Canada, and Mexico — are Virtually UNTOUCHED!

9 out of 10 people HAVE NEVER HEARD OF UNICITY or Unicity’s products!

Major markets like The Philippines, The UK, and Central America are all wide open as well.

I started thinking — What a SPECIAL opportunity!   A solid, established, low-risk player.   With the cash and experience to make things happen.   And the biggest free markets in the world are still wide open — and just waiting for …


Go ahead and chase the risky startup players if you want.   Take a chance on what my friends call “the shiny new object” — be my guest.

But if the network marketing storybook ideal is what you’re really after — the long-term residual income of $50,000/month, $100,000/month, $500,000/month, or even $1,000,000/month and beyond — then UNICITY IS THE PLACE!

Because for that you need a company that will go the distance.   With solid management. With experience and expertise.  With Staying Power.

And because Unicity has all of that — when I look at the top of the mountain, the Holy Grail, the Pinnacle of Success — I know I’m in a company that won’t self-destruct before I get there. That won’t embarrass me with the people I care about and damage my reputation.  That won’t waste my most precious asset — my time!

It’s no wonder that so many seasoned networking professionals who’ve built monster organizations — and so many high-quality business professionals — are GETTING OFF OF THE NETWORK MARKETING ROLLER COASTER and choosing Unicity as THE PLACE TO BUILD THAT FINAL, LASTING, REWARDING LEGACY!

Want Real Upside?  Come build the United States, Canada, UK, Philippines and many other countries with us! With a company that’ll last.  Where you can build upon your previous results.   Where you can invite your friends, family, and associates with CONFIDENCE and CREDIBILITY.

We’re making the run NOW!  THE MOMENTUM IS BUILDING!  We’re getting the word out!   So NOW is the time to MAKE YOUR MOVE and stake your claim on THE NEXT BIG LEGACY!
