Will the network marketing opportunity fulfil any dream of mine?

Resoundingly yes!

Why? How? In simplistic terms, any dream of yours would be fulfilled by one or more of 5 things: time, money, health, relationships, prayer. A balanced combination of all 5 is available in every network marketing opportunity. Now I feel no need to explain how all these 5 are embedded in network marketing opportunities. If that remains a question in your mind you haven’t understood the basics of the industry and probably need another dose of CDs or meetings to get your associations right.

So let’s look at the more complex part… and that is about developing the connection. The connection between what’s on offer and what you want. Let me start with an example.

I once met a gentleman named Doug Wead who was born the son of a church minister. He said he didn’t have any ‘silly dream’ of a house, a car or even to travel the world. In spite of that, his sponsor insisted that he dig deep and put a finger on his dream. What would he really want in life? And Doug, being an avid follower of history, concluded, “I want to have a place in history”. And he went though the motions of professional networking. Days passed. Months passed. And in a few years, Doug found himself interviewing President Nixon, dining with Ronald Reagan, accompanying Gorbachev on his US tour. He found himself a place in the Whitehouse as special advisor to 2 US Presidents. He was traveling all over the world where history was being written. Berlin. Kazakhstan, Tiananmen. He wrote biographies of great leaders. He loved to write but had only 2 books to his credit before the network marketing days. Since then he has written 26 and counting. Because he got the much needed time. He got the resources.

He developed the contacts. And of course, the money. Doug’s charitable organization funds the Missionaries of Charity (Mother Teresa) in Kolkata. His resources support scores of AIDS affected villages in Africa. His trucks were the first to reach Tsunami victims in Indonesia. Doug is in history. Careful what you dream!

Another gentlemen I have met was the former Vice President of Citibank in Indonesia. Robert Ankasa; a man who dreamed of being a top gun in his industry and a role model. Even though he started as an ordinary middle class child who cleaned toilets in Australia to finance his post-graduate management studies, he became a guy who could focus on the ends and not be stuck on the means. And a visionary who served as inspiration for many middle class Indonesians and people the world over.

Ankasa has – through his network marketing opportunity – personally mentored about 50 families to diamond and above. His asset base is worth several hundred million dollars. And it has all developed over the last decade, of which three years he spent building a network in parallel to a high pressure bank job. And then he was free. For life. Forever. To serve as an instrument of substantial socio-economic change in Indonesia and – by example – in the rest of the world.

Ankasa tells us stories of discipline that the Indonesians are famous for. As also are the Chinese. Jim Dornan makes a special mention of him in his path-breaking book co-authored with the legendary John Maxwell, ‘Becoming a person of influence’. He says in a lighter vein, “it is not falling into a lake that will drown you… it is staying there that will”. So as we plunge into the waters we know not, it is best to keep moving. Else we become another network marketing failure statistic. And lose the opportunity to really live our dreams.

Coming back to your context, now what will keep you away from pursuing a network marketing opportunity to (seemingly tangentially) realize your dreams? 3 things: One, not having (or believing in) a mentor. Two, not having internal conviction that this is a viable strategy despite its obviousness. Or three, impatience.

While the first can be remedied by locating a mentor, the second is more tricky. It calls for a deliberate movement outside the conventional thought process and you know what… doing so brings a person ‘out-of-the-box forever! In all walks of life!! So it is definitely worth the effort and chances are this is easier than you think if you stay amongst a network marketing peer group and audaciously close to your mentor. As for the third barrier, it’s a weakness habit and successful people will do best after they break it. Like all good things network marketing is not a quick-fix solution to issues. But it is generally seen that over a five year span the achievements of a networker would far surpass those of a non-networker in all walks of life. How is that? Simply due to the networker’s focus on good habits and positive company.

My personal vision for instance is to create an army of b-quadrant high consciousness individuals who usher in a new era of abundance thinking. Now what could this possibly have to do with branding, which has been my space since 20 years? Nothing evidently… except the way thoughts and events have unfolded over time… and today I can visualize a strongly branded institution that is churning out b-quadrant entrepreneurs using a branded consciousness building processes driven by Sandeep Nath’s personal branding. The latter is evolving through my reasonable and growing presence online, testimony to which is your being on this page 🙂

I am always open to partner with people on this purpose-laden dream of mine. To check out one network marketing opportunity you can pick up and execute online look up my primary online business here. Careful what you dream!
