Network Marketing - It's an Asset, Not a Job!
I am sometimes asked, "Why do so few people make it to the top of their network marketing system?" Robert Kiyosaki Author of "Rich Dad, Poor Dad"
Fact is the top of the network marketing system is open to everyone unlike traditional corporate systems, which allow only one person to reach the top of the company. The reason most people do not reach the top is simply because they quit too soon. So why would someone quit short of the top? Most people join only to make money. If they don't make the money in the first few months or years, they become discouraged and quit (and then often bad mouth the industry). Others quit and go looking for a company with a better compensation plan. But joining to make a few quick dollars is not the reason to get into the business.
There are two Essential Reasons To Join a Network Marketing Business
- Reason #1 is to help yourself
- Reason #2 is to help others.
If you join for only one of these two reasons, then the system will not work for you.
Reason #1 means that you come to the business primarily to change quadrants to
Change from the E (Employee) or the S (Self Employed) quadrant to the B (Business Owner) or I (Investor) quadrant.
This change is normally very difficult for most people because of money. The true E or S quadrant person will not work unless it is for money. This is also what causes people to not reach the top of the network marketing system: they want money more than they want to change quadrants.
A B quadrant or I quadrant person will also work for money, but in a rather different way. The B quadrant person works to build or create an asset in this case a business system. The I quadrant person invests in the asset or the system.
The great thing about most network marketing systems is that you don't really make much money, unless of course you help others leaving the E and S quadrants and succeed in the B and I quadrants. If you focus on helping others make this shift, then you will be successful in the business.
As a B or an I, sometimes you don't get paid for years....a True E Quadrant or S Quadrant person will not do so. It's not part of their core values. Risk and delayed gratification disturbs them emotionally.
Delayed Gratification and Emotional Intelligence
One of the beauties of network marketing is that it focusses on developing your emotional intelligence as well as your business skills.
Emotional intelligence is an entirely different matter from academic intelligence. In general, someone with high emotional intelligence will often do better than someone with high academic intelligence but low emotional intelligence. That explains in part why some people do well in school, but no so well in the real world.
The ability to delay gratification is a sign of higher emotional intelligence. In a recent study of emotional intelligence was found that people who could delay gratification often led more successful lives than those who could not.
This is why the educational system inherent in a good network marketing opportunity is so important. It's the emotional education or emotional intelligence aspect of their programs that I find so valuable for people.
Many people write me and tell me they loved my book "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" but I fear that many of them don't get the most important point of the book - LESSON #!..."The rich don't work for money"
Once I've built or bought an asset, that asset works hard to make money for me. But I will not work for money I will work only to build or buy assets. Those assets make me richer and richer while I work less and less. That's what the rich do...the poor and middle class work hard for money and then buy liabilities instead of investing in assets.
What Kind of Asset is a Network Marketing Business?
Remember, there are two reasons required to be successful in network marketing -
- To help yourself
- And to help others.
Reason #1 means helping yourself get to the B side of the quadrant. What about reason #2?
If you only want to teach yourself to be a B quadrant and and I quadrant person then a true network marketing system won't work for you. You may as well go to a traditional business school, which focusses only on your becoming a B Quadrant person.
The beauty of a network marketing business is that your goal is to create assets which are other B's working under you and their job is to create other B's working under them. In a a traditional business the focus is for the B to have only E's and S's working for them.
The type of business I was taught to build is a business with me at the top and E's and S's at the base. I really don't have room at the top for many other B's which is why in my business I strongly recommend that all my employees look into network marketing as their own part-time businesses.
The traditional corporate system really is a pyramid, because there are a few B's and I's near the top and more E's and S's at the base. A network marketing system is a reverse pyramid. It's primary focus is to bring up more and more B's to the top.
One type of pyramid - the traditional type has it's base on the ground, the other type has it's base in the air. It's a pyramid that pulls you up instead of pulling you down. A network marketing business gives everyone access to what used to be the domain only of the rich.
