Network Marketing training: two things I learned from my children

I always pay attention to the Network Marketing gurus. I always feel like I'm missing something big when I don't watch every video or read every email. I have to remind myself what my focus is at the moment so I don't have the temptation to use my productive time as training time.

But I also learn constantly from my children.

Today they were my gurus, my mentors, my trainers.

It's not like I learn something new. It was more like a reminder of what I can be.

Let me tell you:

The first lesson came from my oldest son.
He has been afraid of the water for a long time. He was always uncomfortable with the idea of Swimming Lessons. He even got stuck in Boy Scouts, he couldn't go further because the was lacking the Swimming part.

I told him that we will take care of that this Summer.

It's the Law of Attraction. I also call it an answered prayer. One of his Scout Masters got in touch with us about possible private Swimming Lessons. My son made a face when I told him he was going.

Fast forward two weeks and almost daily lessons, he passed his Swimming Test. To see him jumping off the board and getting to the other side safely was one of proudest moments as a mom. Then his coach said that she had never seen anyone working so hard without complaining.

He did it. So can I. He taught me to give the best of me, to work hard without complaining. He can jump off the board. So can I.

The second lesson came form my daughter. It was simple yet beautiful.

She was looking at the "Central Penn Parents" magazine. An Ad caught her eye. It was about a contest for the next Cover Child.

She asked me if she could enter. She saw the rules and it was like they were just an invitation for her to participate. Nothing seemed hard to do or like an obstacle. She doesn't even know if she is too old already.

"So?" she asked. I asked back "What if you don't win?". Her answer: "It's okay, I still want to do it".

So what if she doesn't win? She was already a winner in my eyes just for making the decision to go for it. She is not looking at the possibility of not winning. She is looking at the possibility of doing it.

And so can I. She didn't see the obstacles, why should I?

Did I mention my son is 13 and my daughter almost 8?

Aren't children the best thing ever? What have your children taught you?

We are successful Network Marketing Moms!

Hi Angelica,

Brilliant children you have there. Loved this post. Children can indeed teach us many things because they're missing some of the "now I should's" that adults acquire along the way (mistakenly usually).

A.L. Williams once said that you beat 50% of the people by just showing up. You can beat the next 40% by working hard. That last 10% is your real competition. Here's to out-producing your "10%'ers."

All the best,

Alan

Alan,

Thank you for your comment and wisdom. I'll be thinking about "outproducing your 10%'ers".

All the best to you too!

Some times children make us surprise from their fresh mind thought. Their way of thinking is bit different. We should not ignore their suggestions, and we have to appreciate for their participation.
Thanks for sharing this.
