1. “The people who are the hardest to love are usually the ones who need it the most.”
The most difficult people to get along with are usually difficult because no one tries to love or get to know them. In other words, they appear unlovable because of a gruff exterior, for example, and therefore no one will go near them.
This can be related to network marketing by giving the greatest attention to the customers that seem the most resistant to buying your product. By giving them more attention, you have a better change at convincing them that the product will be beneficial to them in some way.
2. “Anger, hatred, violence are really all just fear. Fear then, not money, is the root of all evil.”
Ander, hatred, and violence are the products which stem from fear. Therefore, fear is the culprit, not money.
I think fear is probably at the root of why customers don’t commit to buying a product. Fear of the unknown; also people are fearful of scams since the Internet is replete with them. The Internet marketer must convince his or her customers that their product is not a scam, but rather is something that is useful to them.
3. “There are no ordinary moments.”
At any given moment during a 24-hour period, there are a myriad of important events taking place. A baby is born, someone graduates from school, someone gets married, a high school track star wins a race, etc. Every moment something important happens to someone.
By acknowledging the fact that there are no ordinary moments, you are also acknowledging the fact that there are only extraordinary moments. In network marketing, the marketer could attempt to convince his or her clients/customers that buying the product is an extraordinary moment in that it could change their life in some positive way.
4. “There is never nothing going on.”
Although one person may be having a quiet moment, there are still things going on all the time; not just among people, but in nature, in the animal and plant worlds, in our own communities, and in the world at large.
While most people are looking the other way or focusing on something else, the world is constantly changing. Most notably, governments are moving in nefarious ways and economies are taking a downturn. How can we as consumers survive in a world that seems determined to defeat the average citizen?
5. “Chaos is not chaotic at all, but perfectly controlled.”
Something that looks chaotic may often be very well organized. For example, a bee hive might look chaotic with hundreds of bees swarming around a hive on the outside. While, inside, each insect has its own individual role to play in producing honey for the hive.
Network marketing may sometimes seem chaotic, but if an organized system is followed, that system could lead to sales and/or conversions. Building a list and staying in contact with the leads on that list is essential. Giving your list valuable information on a consistent basis and in an organized fashion can be highly effective.
6. “When making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, you must first apply the peanut butter, not the jelly, to the bottom half of the bread.”
Take a task and complete it in its proper order. Don’t try to complete a task by coming to a conclusion when you know there are certain elements that need to be completed in order before coming to the conclusion.
There are many techniques involved in network marketing, but those techniques will be most effective when each element is completed in its proper order.
7. “If you lend somebody $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.”
People who accept money from you with the expectation that they will pay it back and they never do, are people you don’t need in your life anyway. Therefore, it was worth the $20 to get them out of your life.
In network marketing, if you are offering customers an incentive to buy your product, be certain to follow through on that incentive whatever it may be. This helps to build trust between the marketer and the client.
8. “Knowledge is not the same as wisdom.”
Knowledge is information. Wisdom is knowing. Knowing how to live a successful life based upon one’s experience and sometimes in spite of one’s experience.
In network marketing, it might become necessary to let customers know the difference between knowledge and wisdom based upon whatever the product is. Knowledge plus experience can lead to wisdom.
9. “Death isn’t sad. The sad thing is most people don’t live at all.”
To me, this represents the old paradigm: “We go to school, get good grades, graduate, get a job, work on that job for 30-40 years, then retire with a pension.”
In network marketing, the possibility of saving oneself from the old paradigm is possible. Successful Internet marketing has saved and is still saving people from working on jobs they hate and from feeling unfulfilled.
