Life Beyond the Rat Race – Sticking to the Basics
It sounds pretty simple when you hear a leader or coach preaching about sticking to the basics. But if you want to experience life beyond the rat race, you have to focus on the basics. This is one of the most ignored concepts in the home business or network marketing arena. Through the years, I’ve watched person after person try to reinvent the wheel, create their own presentation, or complicate what is intended to be the simplest, most duplicable business model in existence.
What are the basics that can propel you to a life beyond the rat race? 1.) Contact. 2.) Show a company-produced presentation (online video, corporate approved meeting, DVD.) 3.) Follow up and answer questions. 4.) Close. Then you repeat this process with the next person… and the next… and the next! The problem is that the formula is so simple that people think, “This can’t possibly work!” So, people try to jazz it up and add a few fancy moves, and all of a sudden they wonder why they’re unable to effectively assemble a team.
Legendary UCLA basketball coach John Wooden reportedly would greet all of his players each year in the basketball arena and allow them to show their moves. Wow, what a show! After watching some of the fanciest dribbles and shots in basketball, he’d call his team together and say, “Now let’s go out there and do what’s important: free throws and lay-ups. ”He’d make them stay and practice the basics until they were perfect. The fancy stuff didn’t matter – it was execution of the basics that would win the ball games. In this business as well, it is the basics that allow you to get to life beyond the rat race.
Peyton Manning, all time great NFL quarterback, recently underwent neck surgery and extensive therapy. After spending months in rehab and working toward restoring this game to greatness, Peyton found it necessary to go back and spend several weeks with his quarterback coach from his days at The University of Tennessee. Coach Cutcliff and Manning worked together to, once again, perfect his basics. It was then that the bidding war for Manning began, and he ultimately decided to make his return to the field with the Denver Broncos with a mega-million dollar contract in hand. That is life beyond the rat race!
Successful people recognize that the game is won or lost by mastering the basics. All you have to do is follow the basics of network marketing and teach others to do the same. Nothing fancy, nothing new…follow what is tested and true. Learn the basics – contact – presentation -follow-up – and close. Make them work for you and enjoy life beyond the rat race.
