Are you following the leader? Are you stepping in the foot steps of the network marketing ‘gurus’, the top-income earners and top-producers, and the company leaders?
I was watching Peter Pan with my kids and the song ‘Following the Leader’ came on. The chorus goes like this: “We’re following the leader, the leader, the leader, we’re following the leader, wherever he may go!”
Wherever he may go… Really?
What about you? Are you following the leader wherever he may go?
The trouble with leadership in network marketing, is that most new business owners need to follow the leaders before they can establish their own leadership. While many don’t know the industry, it is wise to learn from the leaders, identify what works for others, and then replicate their success in their network marketing business.
Network marketing is a business industry that relies heavily on duplication. We tell people that if they copy the actions of their successful mentors, they will produce the same results. However, being a great network marketer and mentor to others also requires leadership, integrity and personal power. So when does one branch out?
The tricky thing about following other people, is that everyone’s journey is different. We all have different strengths, talents, hearts, inspiration, goals and dreams. No matter how wealthy or successful your mentor is, what they do may not work for you, or may not bring you the realisations of your own desires. What THEY do brings THEM results for THEIR dreams. There are no carbon-copies in replicating success in network marketing. It’s too personal.
So here is ‘The Big Question’ for my fellow network marketers:
Are you branching out as a leader, and taking the actions that will work for YOU, harness YOUR strengths, cultivate YOUR passion, answer to YOUR heart, respect YOUR integrity, and bring YOU results in realising YOUR dreams?
