Weekends are spent for many people running around, taking care of errands, kids’ activities, catching up with friends and family and hopefully unwinding a little too. I also had a jam packed weekend with some truly incredible and inspiring people and I was given the opportunity to train some of the people in this world who truly get what a gift relationship marketing truly is. When I have the opportunity to work one on one with enthusiastic and eager people, it makes me truly feel my purpose in life is being fulfilled. I feel like there is nothing better in the world than to see the fire ignite in someone and see it burn like a beacon waiting for all those lost ships to come and make it safely home.
You see, when you enter into a relationship marketing business, that is what you become….a ray of hope for all of those people waiting for you to show yourself to them, to give them an option, a choice, a way… Do you remember life before you started your business? The daily grind, the ins and outs of a life without purpose – it is something I remember well even though I was truly fortunate to have started my business early in my adult life.
But sometimes I think about what would have happened if I had never found that person who first introduced me to my business opportunity and made me see how it was the way out of my mundane existence and onto the path towards achieving my dreams. I think how I would have lived a 40 hour life or a 50 – 60 hour life …living to work, where I worried about money and was a slave to someone else’s schedule and vision. I think of all the trips I would have missed, the comfort and luxury items I would never have known.
You know what I think would have been the worst thing of all to have missed? The relationships. The people who became friends, mentors, and partners. Isn’t that what changes us after all? First we have a mentor that guides us and teaches us the powerful destiny that is ours if we claim it. Then we have the friends and peers that we work together with as we struggle through the ins and outs of learning and growing. Finally we become the mentors to our new partners in our business as we help other achieve their dreams. There is just nothing better.
It is my wish for you that whether you are just starting out, or if you’ve been working at your business for a while, or you are a wise mentor now to your team of partners, that you recognize the value in all of your relationships. I hope you will never let your journey grow stagnant – that you always have a mentor to push you further than you thought you could go, and that you always bring others along with you as you pass along what you’ve learned. What an absolutely miraculous business!
Thanks for letting me be a part of your journey,
