What does constitute ‘Success?’ If you have it some areas of your life, how do you bring it over to your online MLM business?
It’s the million dollar question BUT
Before you read the details, the bottom line is
Follow your PASSION– do what you LOVE and LOVE what you do!
Have good RELATIONSHIPS with everything part of your life!
I know this is not a new concept to you.
It’s tough to go to work each day unhappy, wishing you were somewhere else.
Isn’t that why most people are looking to make money online anyway?
To change their circumstances?
What makes Success?
The second bottom line is to make sure that what you are endeavouring to market online, that you believe in it
- use it because you love it
- have confidence in the product or service
- confidence in the company itself
- know you are helping others.
Back to the study.
I have taken the results on this study [see below] and interpreted it to transfer to success in business.
True success is not isolated to one area of our lives.
My motto is ‘Health is Wealth’ because anyone who has poor health, but all the money in the world does not feel happy or even perhaps successful.
The father who works non stop at the expense of his family does not have total success.
So it appears from the study that LOVE and RELATIONSHIPS are the key to your success.
- Love what you do
- Love your relationships
Here is the excerpt from the summary of the study. [I have left quite a lot out but the link is here if you want the lot]
‘In June 2009, The Atlantic published a cover story on the Grant Study, one of the longest-running longitudinal studies of human development.
The project, which began in 1938, has followed 268 Harvard undergraduate men for 75 years, measuring an astonishing range of psychological, anthropological, and physical traits—from personality type to IQ to drinking habits to family relationships to “hanging length of his scrotum”—in an effort to determine what factors contribute most strongly to human flourishing.
There was no significant difference in maximum income earned by men with IQs in the 110–115 range and men with IQs higher than 150
Vaillant revisited the data he had been studying since the 1960s for his book, an experience that further convinced him that what matters most in life are relationships.
For instance, the 58 men who scored highest on measurements of “warm relationships” earned an average of $141,000 a year more at their peak salaries (usually between ages 55 and 60) than the 31 men who scored lowest; the former were also three times more likely to have achieved professional success worthy of inclusion in Who’s Who.
Vaillant’s key takeaway, in his own words: “The seventy-five years and twenty million dollars expended on the Grant Study points … to a straightforward five-word conclusion: ‘Happiness is love. Full stop.’ ”
What to do if this is NOT you!
Stop what you are doing particularly if it is not successful and do something you LOVE.
There are so many choices online.
