Very often, I take a close look at my SFI Genealogy Report, just to see who are the most active Affiliates in my downline, see their faces, where they come from, what they suggest, what they have done so far in this business, and ultimately imagine how their life currently is and how it could possibly improve in just a few years, as a result of what they are doing today.
This is really a fantastic way for me to spend some moments just relaxing, while my mind is flying from one Country to another and “meet” these beautiful people, experiencing the wonderful feeling of having been able to do something useful and helped them to improve their financial future and consequently, their lives.
The positive impact on other people’s lives we all can have as SFI sponsors, I think is definitely the best aspect of our business.
But automatically, this practice also obliges me to see how many inactive affiliates are “sleeping” there in my downline.
Even if I’m already aware of that, It always surprises me to see that the majority of my downline affiliates are totally inactive and I wonder: “as all these people are certainly interested in making money (otherwise they would have never signed up as Affiliates) how come that they are not willing to move a finger to build their secure income?”
I can understand some of them, let’s say 10%, have some real good reason (I don’t know what is, but probably some good excuse really exists ; ), but what about the remaining 90% of those inactive affiliates?
You know; I started this business from scratch only a few months ago and I immediately started to make very good money. So from my position it’s hard to understand how other people still cannot see the same huge opportunity I saw when I was in their same situation just a while ago.
I really think that 100% of people interested in making a lot of money online can only be very interested in building their own SFI business. Rather, this is actually true for a much smaller percentage of current Affiliates. Why?
Well, in my opinion the answers are the same causes that, especially in the so called “developed Countries”, keep people in a situation of poverty, making it very hard for them to get out of it.
These causes are with no doubt; ignorance and fear. Where probably fear is the direct consequence of ignorance.
Majority of people in these countries in fact, still have a mentality that leads them to seek first of all for “job security” rather than wealth and freedom. Just because since they were at school, they have been taught the same concept made famous by Robert Kiyosaki’s poor dad: “get good marks, find a job, save money, live frugally get out of debt”.
Which is probably the concept which has contributed the most, to create the unbelievable mass of poor people we have today in the developed Countries, where the majority of people is more willing to loose part of their freedom seeking for a traditional job as employee, helping other people (…their boss rather than themselves) to become richer and richer, rather than starting their own business with a vision more oriented to an entrepreneurial future, which could rapidly create higher income and more free time to better enjoy their lives.
Even if it sounds just like a no-sense to me, I can understand that, because everything depends on what people consider to be risky or secure.
In fact I realise that I have probably been quite lucky when I was young, as I have never been an excellent student. Consequently, I always had quite clear in mind that if I really wanted to be rich I definitely had to be an entrepreneur rather than an employee.
Just because even if I was an average student, my ambitions and dreams have never been “average dreams” and very soon I became perfectly aware that in the ongoing hard competition of the employees’ world, where only one out of thousands of people can attain a relevant and well paid position, my chances of being that “lucky” one were probably close to zero and so were my odds of fulfilling my dreams.
Furthermore, I never conceived myself as someone able to put the control of my financial future (hence my entire life) in the hands of someone other than myself. I always considered this really risky!
The idea of asking someone to hire me, was something close to the idea of selling my freedom just to work for the rest of my life for a very limited salary, with the only “security” of never being able to get out of the average level and the additional high risk of falling one day or another even lower than that, depending on the mood of my potential bosses.
For the majority of people worldwide this above is exactly the idea of “job security“. For me it was the most risky thing to do. Opposite to all my dreams.
In a few words I’ve always had perfectly clear in my mind that the right path to become rich is certainly not to work for others.
I don’t wanna say that everybody in the world should be an entrepreneur of course. It just depends on everyone’s ambitions: if you feel a kind of frustration about what your current situation is, and you would like to achieve your deserved financial security, rather than an uncertain “job security” I think you’d better consider to start right now your own business, rather than looking for a traditional job.
Especially nowadays! In fact thanks to the information age in which we are living, it has never been easier to start a profitable business, even part-time without having to leave the current job.
Unfortunately for them, many people are still stuck in the old industrial age mindset and are still not able to perfectly “see” the huge opportunities available today.
In the same way, talking about Network Marketing, many people are still stuck in the old concept of what Network Marketing has been over the past decades and they are still not able to see what NM actually is now in the information age.
In fact, all limits that Network Marketing used to have in the past, don’t exist anymore. They have been totally swept away by new technology and the vision and skills of certain entrepreneurs like SFI’s President Gery Carson.
Today, Network Marketing opportunities like SFI, have nothing to do with the old limited concepts that made it an opportunity where only a small percentage of people were really able to attain outstanding results.
Why? Just a few clear facts to avoid making this post too long:
1) today you don’t need at all to lose friends and families stressing them until they hate you, just to sell them some product they are not interested in.
– In fact now your market is the entire world, you are not selling a specific and high priced product and you can also participate to co-operative marketing initiatives, to get all the Affiliates you need to plan, build and consolidate your business.
2) Today you can’t say “I don’t have time”. You don’t need to take your car to go everywhere to make presentations of your products and/or opportunity, or attend long and tedious weekly meeting miles away from you.
– In fact now you are basically sharing online a proven system which will work automatically for you, once you have set it up.
3) Today you don’t have to attend expensive seminars during the weekends.
– Everything today is much simpler, consequently the learning curve is much faster and you can do everything from your computer, even supported by your sponsor. For free!
4) Today you don’t have to invest in expensive initial kits and stock products in your garage.
– You start a sophisticated business like SFI, totally free and you will never have to buy, sell and ship any product.
5) Today you don’t have to wait ages in order to start earning seriously.
– As things are simpler and easier for everybody, a much higher percentage of Affiliates in your downline will become motivated and active, so your business can grow much faster and increase steadily your income month after month.
As you can easily understand, today Network Marketing opportunities like SFI are really for everybody. You just need to start getting involved somehow.
For instance; commit yourself today to get involved in your SFI business 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week for at least 1 month.
Do this just with the aim of increasing your knowledge about it. Automatically you will get rid of all your fears and very soon, you will be able to create a business plan knowing exactly what to do month after month, year after year, to become rich.
Also, inform your upline sponsors about your commitment. They will monitor your results and start supporting you more and more.
