Happy Friday: Emptying Out Your Tools
It’s Happy Friday again! As you pull your team meeting outfit out of the closet, think about this question.
How many boxes would you need to hold all of your tools?
Unless you listen to each and every one of your tools on a regular basis — which you probably don’t — chances are they are taking up precious space in your house or apartment. Think about all of the tools you’ve accumulated during your time in the business. And to think that you’re just one IBO; there have been millions who have come and gone before you! A lot of them were no doubt part of some Amway Motivational Organization (AMO). Think about the mountains and tons of tapes, books, CDs, binders, and pamphlets that are hiding in someone’s garage or in the dumps.
You say the tools are useful? What do you have to show for their utility? How large is your bonus check each month? Could you produce that bonus check without the use of tools? Why or why not?
You might say the tools provide duplication, and I say the only thing they duplicate is money in your upline kingpin’s pockets. If their System is so duplicable and so essential for succes, why aren’t there more new Diamonds and Emeralds walking across stage in North America?
The fact is, many Systems have taught people not how to sell products, but how to sell tapes, books, and functions. My advice? Get good at selling products from your business and teach your downline to do the same. Your business will get bigger, your check will be larger, and you’ll have more storage space in your house without these useless tools.
