Looking over your fence it’s always tempting to think that if only getting greener grass like your neighbour your life would be so much better! However, we all know it won’t but sometimes we’re enticed to start going that way of thinking when life deals us particular hardship. We begin thinking, ‘If only….’
My Brother’s Lawn
My brother’s lawn is almost perfect. It’s level for a start! It’s always immaculately trimmed and very green no matter what the weather’s been like. It really does make me envious.
Then we start talking and sooner or later out come the odds bits of information about what was done to the lawn or what needs to be done. It might have been a trip to the garden centre for seed or fertiliser. Or it might be cutting or dealing with moss. It could be anything!
In fact he’s been tending that patch of grass for 15 years or more and it didn’t start like the way it is now! It was an uneven, patchy excuse for a back yard.
It’s then I realise that I don’t really want his lawn because I wouldn’t put the time and effort in required to keep it that way. What I’m really after is a ready made fairy tale where everything happens by magic. A wave of a wand. A chanting of a few magical phrases.
I’m needing to live in the land of Peter Pan and make-believe!
No Fairy Tales Please!
You may have a MLM or network marketing business and wondering whether it’s in fact the right one for you because it’s not giving you the returns you were expecting or lead to believe you would.
Or perhaps you have been looking around for the perfect business that is just right, but you’ve looked at so many you are having difficulty making a decision.
Like my brother’s grass, if you want a successful business, it doesn’t matter too much where you start, it’s what you do with the opportunity that counts.
Notice I said ‘It’s what YOU do…’ To take the accolade of a successful entrepreneur requires lots and lots of behind the scenes dedication putting in tons of hard, consistent labour. It’s not ‘get rich quick’!
Real Dreams Are Good
This is where dreams ARE important! Dreams that is, not fairy tales. Dreams help you establish goals. Big goals as well as little goals. Goals you can steadily work towards. Goals that are achievable. Goals in all parts of your life that will make you a complete person in body, mind and spirit.
So how are you going to set your course and achieve?
You need to join a team and establish a strategy. Spend time and money on your self. Prepare to learn new skills and new things about yourself. Get grounded in the real world and put in some hard graft.
It’s YOUR business, YOUR life. You determine what pace you work, what advances you make. No one will judge. That’s for you to do!
So if you’re thinking of getting greener grass like your neighbour, you need to start working like your neighbour!
