There are no shortcuts in life – at least not for the things that truly matter. Success in ACN – or in anything for that matter – is a process. It takes hard work and consistent effort every day. So, let me ask you this: how are you building your ACN business? Are you interested or are you involved?
Interested people treat their ACN business like attending a sporting event. They like it, they show up, they clap, smile and enjoy the atmosphere, without really caring about who wins or loses because for the most part it doesn’t impact their life one way or the other. At the end of the day, interested people are nothing more than spectators.
Involved people on the other hand treat their business like well, a business. They are engaged in every aspect – the good, the bad, the ugly and the even uglier – and they work their business like their life depends on it, because in many cases it does. Involved people embrace the process, understanding that being successful is just as much about the journey as it is the destination.
Have you ever realized that the greatest success stories come from the greatest challenges? That success often comes just before you think you can’t possibly endure anything more? Why? Because you have to experience the process before you can experience the rewards. So are you involved or are you just interested? If you’re treating your business like a hobby and expecting big changes, the only thing that needs to change is your thinking.
Being involved is a critical step in the process, but it isn’t the only step. Next time, we’ll talk about how to take your game to the next level by going from involved to all-out committed.
