Can You Taste It Yet?

I think that the biggest difference between people who become wildly successful and those who just get by is the burning desire for success which is so strong that they can taste it. Not only do they taste it, they see it, they hear it, they smell it, they feel it. They are determined to get it no matter what it takes.

I am afraid if you don’t have this kind of motivation, you might as well give success the old R.I.P.

Do you think I am kidding?

How many times have I heard people say they can’t take the time to sign up for a free webinar to learn how to grow their business or buy a book or course that teaches you how to get customers to come to you because it costs too much money. When you say these things, you are saying that you would rather be comfortable than be successful. You want to be successful only if it is convenient.

You see success comes with a cost. The process isn’t usually comfortable or easy. You have to taste it so strongly that you will do what it takes to make it happen for you. The stories of many successful people I know in the network marketing business are very similar.

Mike Dillard, a 8-figure earner and expert in attraction marketing, struggled for 5 years to build a network marketing business. He waited tables instead of getting a high-paying job like his college pals because he believed in his network marketing dream. Money was so tight he got so desperate that he pawned his championship-winning bike and DVD collection in order to buy ramen. He even considered moving into a storage unit to save money. But Mike had a taste for success and he bought every book and course on marketing and personal development until he was able to use this knowledge to build his successful Magnetic Sponsoring business. You can read more about Mike at his free 7 Day Video Boot Camp

Larry Beacham, lost his job as a cable guy with a wife and 5 kids to feed. He didn’t know how he was going to feed his family. But he needed to find a way to make it happen. He contacted up to 600 people a day through LinkedIn to mention an affiliate program so he could get paid $20 per sale until things turned around for him and he has been able to do even more than feed his family ever since.

David Wood became homeless and was living in his van and had no money for advertising. He wrote articles every day and submitted them to article directories until his efforts paid him more than $40,000 in less than 4 months. He won a BMW lease in a contest through MLM Lead System Pro beating out others who had spent lots of money in Pay-Per-Click advertising. He used a software to submit his articles to over 100 article directories called Automatic Article Submitter. I have written about that in another post. You can get information about Automatic Article Submitter by clicking on the ad to the right or by clicking here.

As hard as it got for these three guys and many more I could mention, they never gave up. They believed that they could achieve their goal of success. They could taste it. They knew it was theirs and they did whatever was needed to achieve success.

What about you? What would you be willing to do to become successful? What would you be willing to give up if it came to that?
