I was with a fellow network marketing distributor the other day who took a call from their sobbing teenage daughter. I couldn’t help but earwig the advice – she said to her daughter things like “when a new boy comes along you have to realise that you shouldn’t focus solely on them and ignore all your other friends” and “try and be more relaxed about it – every new boy you meet is not ‘the one’ just because they look at you” and “there’s plenty more boys in the world who will appreciate you” and “you can’t stop dating and making new friends just because one or two guys have let you down”.
So it got me thinking – this type of obsessive behaviour that youngsters (and quite a lot of adults too!) have when they meet a new girl or boy, or they finally snare someone who shows them the slightest bit of attention – we all instinctively know is unhealthy and in the long term, counter-productive. Yet we often view the guy or girl who is more ‘laissez-faire’ in their attitude to dating as the one who has more success! However, how many of us apply the same way of being to our prospecting of new distributors and customers, and our way of being when we actually sign up a new distributor? I think this is a useful thing to keep in mind as we continue on our paths to financial success
