It never really occurred to me how our minds are set to default to not try new things. In fact, you may be sitting there just like I was just over two months ago wondering why should I try something new—nothing ever works. Here beg a couple of questions; do I honestly have to spend the rest of my pathetic life working for a company I don’t like? Should I stay within the company hoping I’ll get a promotion let alone a raise?
Why are so many of us set on the ways of the “Corporate world” that we are afraid to try new ideas? I
know, I was the same way a few months ago—but I can proudly say I broke away from that cycle. Let’s break it down statistically; there are four types of people in today’s corporate world. This analysis is taken from Robert Kiyosaki author of the book Rich Dad Poor Dad. His synopsis of today’s working class is demonstrated in what I believed to be an excellent model he called the Cash Flow Quadrant.
Kiyosaki’ model is made up of four categories: employees, self-employed, investors, and business people.
Here are general descriptions of the categories of the Kiyosaki’s model.
1. Employees: Over the course of most of our lives, we along with our parents and grandparents have worked for some form of a corporation—whether it was something we enjoyed doing or it was simply another job for a pay check even though we “dreaded” do that particular job.
With this synopsis, here’s a scenario to consider (Scenario A):
Why do we work so hard and for a good majority of our lives work for a Corporation that places very
little value on us as basic individuals. Of course, I’m speaking about most companies in this scenario.
Perhaps this is all we are accustomed to and for some of us, it might be the only thing we know. How
many people is actually “successful” working for large Corporations? How many of us actually and/or realistically plan on getting promoted to an executive position within a company? I for one don’t plan on working for a company unless I have the potential to move up. Who is to say the next guy is not more qualified than you or I? Why should I devote greater than 9 years of my life in a company that I don’t really like and quite possibly, just maybe, by the slimmest of margins perhaps one day get a promotion?
2. Self-Employed: Generally speaking, these groups of people are self-starters and most often work independently. Self-employed people are reliable, tenacious, and extremely independent—however, they don’t work well with others. Self-Employed typically are successful to
some degree but fail to maximize their full potential because they don’t utilize all of the resources that are available to them.
Scenario B: As the axiom goes, “two heads are better than one” and this is certainly true—can a
business really succeed with just one person? At least can a strong business? I think not.
3. Investors: These groups of people let money work for them through sound and smart investment—these include stocks, 401k, IRA, bonds, mutual funds, etc. What if I tell you, you could go to the gym just one day per week workout for 30 minutes, and you would never have to work-out again because that single work-out will continue to burn calories and fat for the rest of your life? That would sound splendid right? Investors let their money work hard for them; this of course involves choosing the right business and through due-diligence research.
Scenario C: Bottom-line, money can work hard for you!
4. Business: Plain and simple. Business people understand the concept of business, hire the most
successful, reliable, and motivated people to run their businesses. Business entrepreneurs understand that by having the right people, businesses will ultimately succeed because of good management skills (it makes more sense to build your own business than to work for a corporation for the rest of your life). Can you honestly pass down a business you’ll never own to your kids? Probably not. So why are you working for something you’ll never own?
Why Network Marketing is the Business of Today
Have you ever wanted to start your own business? Have you ever thought about being your own boss and breaking the chain of that everyday 9 to 5 job and move away from the Corporate world? I know I have. How many of us know of a business where you can start for under $500 and be successful? The answer is really in front of us—it’s called Network Marketing and Direct Selling.
In a legitimate network marketing company or multi-level marketing you are ten times more likely to succeed and make over $100,000 than you are at your “life-sucking” job. That’s right… ten times more likely! Now you may be laughing and asking yourself “if that’s the case, then why aren’t more
people doing network marketing?”
Simple: This is attributed to the lack of knowledge, lack of dedication, lack of motivation—in fact, people who are “set on the ways” of working for the rest of their lives in a company they will never own or there is no room for growth will never achieve much success in life. And a lot of these people are not willing to break away from the monotony and try something new.
How do I know this? Because I was the same way. I was given the opportunity by a good friend at work to join a business opportunity and succeed. Originally it was introduce to me and I had no interest, in fact I didn’t even want to try because I am probably just like you- the reader, not willing to try something new. Any network marketing or multi-level marketing business looks like just another “Ponzi scheme” another fake “get-rich-now” deal. And you know what I found out, I couldn’t be more wrong!
Why? What, Wrong- Yes Completely Wrong! A month later I decided I would do it. Why not? Do I reallyhave much to lose? I honestly show up to work each and every day and dedicate (throw away nonetheless to say) 8 hours of my life working for something I don’t even like and for something I’ll never even own. Now ask yourself, what is really the bigger pyramid?
The Reality of The Situations is This:
I am just an average person like you; I work hard for my money. You may be just like me doing
something you don’t even like, and why should you?
What I thought would be the biggest mistake actually turned out to be the biggest benefit in my life so far. I quickly adapted and learned new business skills as well as having the support from people who wanted to actually see my be successful.
A little over two months later I still hear people who unfortunately lack the knowledge and foresight of a great networking and marketing opportunity.
I laugh! Why should I listen to people who are working for a company they don’t even
own, why should I listen to people who aren’t even successful to say the least, and more importantly
why should I listen to people who don’t even try? It doesn’t make sense to me. And I’m sure that
it doesn’t make sense to you either. Shouldn’t you and I listen to the people who are successful in
business and in life? Shouldn’t we heed and take advice from Investors who know where to put, and
have invested their money wisely? People who have actually made it? My answer is simply yes, I know yours is yes also- if not then enjoy your 9 to 5 day job
In two months I have made more progress doing network marketing and essentially building my own business than I have in the one year working at my life “sucking job.” I’m 20 years old and I AM NOT going to work for a company I will never own!
