Learn How to be a Giver and a Taker in your Network Market.

Learn How to be a Giver and a Taker in your Network Market.So many people that are in network marketing have the wrong idea of how the law of attraction works. Not only do they believe that all they have to do is sit down on their couch and that everything they want will appear they also have an entitlement mentality they believe that if someone truly cares that they will just give and they are more than willing to just take. If you want to learn How to Network Market you have to learn the art of give and take. I am sure you have had it happen to you before the guy or gal that sends you an email telling you that if you really cared about people you would not charge for your services. That you are a hypocrite because you take peoples money for helping them. I got to say even though I don’t recall ever being the type of person that has acted it that manner I have been the person that believed that you needed to give everything for free. But that is the subject of another article. Today I want to explore how to be a giver and a taker.

Takers

  1. If you constantly believe that others should give out of the kindness of their heart and you feel that they should help you for free you are a taker.If you feel that people should comment on your post just because it is a great post you are a taker.
  2. If you feel that just because you post something on facebook offering the “greatest business opportunity in the world”  thinking that you are giving -you are really a taker.
  3. If you go to someones post and give a fake email name and phone number just to get someones training for free -you are a taker.

How to be a Giver

A giver is not someone that necessarily gives everything for free. A giver understands that it is not beneficial to someone without expecting an exchange of some sort. Actually giving to someone without them giving back will violate one of our ingrained reactions. In the book Influence by Robert Cialdini he writes about Reciprocity. One of the interesting stories is about the Hare Krishna at the airport. People use to hate to take the roses they were offering because as much as they did not want to they felt compeled to donate and when they didn’t they felt guilty.

  1. A giver is someone that when they are giving or even selling they understand that they are providing more value than they are receiving.
  2.  A giver bothers to learn what their target market needs and fulfills that need to the best of his ability. Again not someone that just plasters their opportunity on facebook and thinks because their business is the best one in the world that they are giving.
  3.  A giver would be someone that takes the time to comment. Like Ryan Biddulph ( “Home Based Success”) he gives by taking the time to just comment on peoples blogs.
  4. A giver could just be someone that gives smiles or positive vibes to people, someone that uplifts rather than dump on others all the time. Someone that listens rather than talk. Not that they can’t talk or find counsel in someone they trust. Because a giver knows how to receive as well.

Learn How to be a Giver and a Taker in your Network Market.We all give and take, some of us are out of balance. Some people give to much and resent it, so even tough it appears they are giving spiritually they are taking. Some people are takers and they don’t understand why they are not getting ahead. Yet others have learned to live in balance.

There are different areas of our lives as well so you might be a giver at work but at home you are a taker and it is affecting your relationship. The important thing is to identyfy where you are a giver, where you are a taker. Are you in balance? Sometimes when establishing a relationship you end up giving alot more than receiving but this should only be temporary. Who in your life whether it is in business or in relationship is a giver or a taker? You might want to identify and get rid of those people that are takers in your life or busness. Hope that I gave you some good information today. If you would like to reciprocate just LIKE my facebook page and we can call it even. LOL. You will find that I like to give more than take. Have a blessed day!

Are you Comfortable in Prison?

Are you Comfortable in Prison?Wow. I have said it before and I will say it again. If you want to know how to apply all the words of the success gurus just read and apply the things in the greatest salesman in the world. How appropriate for my recent articles. I have been writing about setting goals and this month scroll is talking exactly about goals. The current scroll that I started reading is number VIII- Today I will Multiply my Value a hundredfold.

 

 

Today I will multiply my value a hundredfold.

And how will I accomplish this? First I will set goals for the day, the week, the month, the year, and my life. Just as the rain must fall before the wheat will crack its shield and sprout, so must I have objectives before my life will crystallize. In setting my goals I will consider my best performance of the past and multiply it a hundredfold.- Og Mandino

Many people let their life just beat them down. Maybe we can look at setting goals from a different perspective. Many people just settle into mediocrity because their subconscious mind is directing them away from the pain of previous attempts and failures. They then use their conscious mind to rationalize why they end up in their own prison. There are no excuses for most of the people that live in the United Sates. Our government and lifestyle, as crazy as it is still allows one of the most important God given abilities which is- free will.

The problem is that we chose to trap ourselves in our minds. So what do we do? We need to escape as if we were escaping from prison. I have never been in prison but I would gather that if it was easy to escape that more people would do it. So it is not an easy endeavor. It requires planing, timing, and guts. It requires a total desire to escape the conditions that are oppressing you. I mean you have 24-7 prison guards monitoring every movement your conscious mind does.

Without desire you will never have the guts to escape. Unfortunately some people are more than comfortable in jail, some actually commit crimes so that they can have a warm place to stay and 3 square meals. So if your life is to much for you to take you have likely incarcerated yourself so that you can at least get three square meals and a roof over your heard. You might have meet some people just like this, and no matter what you say to these people they just will not come out until they believe that they can. Life is entirely to short to spent it in a prison of my own doing. A prison of my misconceptions, fears, and shortcomings.

What were you doing 5 years ago? Is it the same thing that you are doing today? Will it be the same thing that you will be doing 5 years from now? Are you happy doing it? Do you know that would be 10 years of your life (Possibly 10% of your life)? Can you do what you do and still enjoy life to the fullest?

In order to escape prison you should be dreaming of what is on the outside. What is out there? What can you accomplish if you get out? What will you do when you get out that you can not do now? What adventures can you accomplish that you can’t while in jail? Wow! I am taking this metaphor to it’s breaking point.

Today I would like for you to dream again. To dream about what is possible and forget what impossible means. I would like you to write all the things that you have wanted to do in your life. A bucket list perhaps. Have you ever heard of the story of Houdini’s failed escape?

As usually told, the story goes that Houdini, while visiting England, would regularly escape from jails as a publicity stunt. He toured many major towns and cities, and managed to escape from the town or city jail in every case. There was one exception: a police jail cell in Preston, Lancashire. Houdini tried and failed to escape. Why did he fail? Because the cell had never actually been locked in the first place! Hence he was trying to ‘unlock’ a lock which wasn’t locked!”

Although most likely not true it is a cute story to represent what most of us do on a daily basis. We lock ourselves in our preconceived ideas about the outside world and never let ourselves out. Get out!! 

Work with me and my team by registering your name email and phone number on the right hand side. See you on the other side, bye!
