Leadership Was Intimidating
The word “Leader” used to intimidate me. I used to think I could never be a leader because I didn’t have the skills and I was pretty shy. In my past jobs, I always liked to work in the “back office”, behind the scenes where I didn’t have to see the customer or talk to them. So when I started my home based network marketing business, I didn’t think I would be very good at it. What I did know, was that I had to find a way to work at home, earn decent money, and be home with my son.
Law Of Averages
Once I started following the step-by-step plan, I decided to master “the game” called the Law Of Averages. I understood that I could become skilled at anything if I was just willing to “Make Up In Numbers, What I Lacked In Skill“, as Jim Rohn says. I remember thinking… if the objective was to get 10 basketballs into the basketball net per day, all I would have to do is to keep shooting the basketballs until I got 10 for the day. There was no time limit and there was no limit as to how many shots I could take everyday, so I was guaranteed to master the game, IF, I was willing to keep on trying No Matter What! “Wow”, I thought to myself, now this was something I could believe I could achieve!
Give It Everything You’ve Got
I started to wake up early and I stayed up late. I worked on the weekends and gave it everything I had and in a very short period of time, I found myself mastering “the game”. It started to become easier and I started to enjoy it more as I achieved my goals one day at a time. Before long, what I used to call “work” became a habit, and the habit became my passion. My work became my play, and my play became my work. I believe “when you do what you love and you love what you do, everything else will flow into your life”.
Lead By Example
A very interesting thing started to happen. As I was “mastering the game”, people started to follow me. As I lead by example, more people started to follow me and they started calling me a leader. I was surprised!! 😯 All I did was set out to master the game, and when I looked up, I was a leader! That was the start of my home business leadership career and how to become a leader in your niche. Of course, I studied leadership mentors, read books, listened to CDs, attended seminars, and watched DVDs every day throughout my home business career. I decided to “get a little bit better everyday“, as Mark Hughes says.
I was always taught to follow successful leaders, study successful leaders, and mentor with successful leaders. Here are a few famous leadership quotes to live by:
