So, last weekend, my company had a big event on. It was two days in two different locations. Both venues could hold 3000 people and the Saturday event sold out very quickly.
I spoke to a relatively new distributor who lived about 40 minutes from the venue that sold out. So she booked for the alternate venue which was 4 hours away instead!
I commended her on this commitment and she said she was missing an unmissable family BBQ to go to the seminar.
Again I commended her and she said “I love our family get-togethers but they’re not worth £25k a year for…”
I asked what she meant by this… She said (somewhat ahead of her time!) “some people will say they ‘can’t’ get out of something or ‘can’t’ travel too far but that isn’t true. I ‘can’t’ not go to the BBQ but I’m not going anyway because I know this business will get me two thousand pounds per month to retire on, but it won’t do that if I don’t sacrifice the odd commitment and travel an extra hour or two to the important events that are going to speed up that residual income. Then I can see my family any time I want.”
Great attitude and mindset. Looks like she will speed her retirement up a few years by going the extra mile. Strangely, going the extra mile route is never crowded. But neither is the beach on a Thursday at 11am in off-peak season, as I write this, when everyone else is doing their job.
