Picking Up The Pieces
Those who have had negative experiences with their MLM and/or training organizations find it takes months or even years to get over and recover. It also seems that the longer you were in, the longer it takes to get over the experience.
My take? It’s okay to spend time grieving or being angry. Write about it, talk to friends, family, and former MLM-people about it. Post on this blog, other blogs critical of MLMs and Systems, or even start your own blog.
It’s important, however, that you don’t let those past negative experiences take over your life. Yes, what happened sucked big-time, and the financial and emotional damage may still affect you today. But, you must pick yourself up and move on. If you joined an MLM/System looking for financial success, know that you aren’t a failure for quitting. The odds were stacked against you from the beginning. Know also that there are other opportunities and avenues to achieve your goals. Start by reading various free finance blogs on the Internet. Go to the library. Learn a new trade. Look at what’s happening around you, your city, or your state for opportunities. Smart small, be fiscally lean and focus on profitability. It will take hard work, but it won’t require you to buy a book of the month, a CD every week or a four cases of fruit juice every month.
And about those individuals and organizations that you feel hurt and wronged you? Rest assured that they will have their own day of reckoning in the future. The wheels of justice and karma are ever turning, and they are always moving toward resolution.
