Lessons I Learned From The Greatest Networker In The World

Have you ever “asked” for answers to some of your life’s pressing questions?  You know, the ones which you must find the answer to, but somehow you can’t figure it out, and then it can get very frustrating! 😡  Well, I have been there many times, and I remember what Jim Rohn says “Don’t get frustrated, get fascinated”!  Fascinated that the answer is so close, if I just release my resistance and “ask” for the answers and surrender.

I recently found myself in this situation again, and began to surrender and ask for the answers.  Believe me, I know it sounds too simple, however, it works every time.  This is where the quiet time I described in the Slow Down” post will really assist you in finding those answers.

I Listened To My Answers

One of the interesting things has been Personal Development books which I have read many times in the past, coming back into my life.  One of them is called “The Greatest Networker in the World” by John Milton Fogg.

I have the hard copy book and I read it more than once back in the late 90’s, however, I was lead to John’s website http://www.thegreatestnetworker.org, and his website was filled with fascinating information!  One of the pages offered a free audio and e-book of “The Greatest Networker in the World”, and I decided to re-listen to his very famous book once again.

The Light Bulb Went On

Here are some of the key points I learned from “The Greatest Networker In The World”:

1. There is nothing which you now know, and nothing about what you think you don’t know, that will help you create the success you desire.  The key to your success lies only in what you don’t know that you don’t know. 😯

2.  Make sure everyone has fun; teach them all you can; make sure they develop as an individual and as a member of the team; win when you can.

3.  Give people what they want; provide them the level of support, and give them the time and attention that is appropriate for where they are and what they want to accomplish.

4.  Be very clear about what you want.  I.e.  I want leaders who will duplicate themselves.

5.  Work on establishing habits of belief that support them in becoming all they truly want to achieve.

6.  People must be taught to teach others to succeed.

7.  You take a stand for people.  You champion them and their success.  The shortest and most direct way of doing that is to teach them to teach others.

8. Sometimes taking a stand for people requires your giving people a rough time.  Sometimes, being stretched hurts, especially if your mind isn’t flexible and isn’t used to it.  Another benefit of working on your habits of belief is that you get used to stretching on purpose and it makes you mentally flexible.

Here’s a video I did telling you about my “aha” moment:

    John’s books were on of the first I read years ago. I was so surprised by the great content that pertained to life in general. These books led me to begin exploring my personal life, not just my business goals and desires.

    Aloha Val,

    Kellie, Thank you for sharing the valuable lessons you learned from The Greatest Networker in the World. It’s refreshing to know that I’m not the only one who doesn’t know what I don’t know! I love the personal videos you have been doing on your blog. Keep up the inspiring work Kellie!!

    Thank you Lisa! Oh, you know me well. It has been my hesitancy hasn’t it? I am so glad you know that what you don’t that you don’t know is the most important part to your success! Thanks for your encouraging words on the personal videos! With comments like yours, I have the courage to do more!…LOL 🙂

  5. Kim Jensen Says:

    I just love you! What a great book..I’m gettin it! My favorite part was the idea of creating ‘habits of belief’. This takes some inner soul searching and a bit of time…but it WORKS. Thanks for the re-minder to stay focused on ‘fascination’ with life rather than losing faith with frustration.

    Wanting only the best for you, Kim

    Awe, your so cute Kim! I am so glad we are getting to know each other from the tribe! I am going to read your post right now. Thank you for your kind comments. I really appreciate it! And yes, habits of belief takes a conscious effort to want to change. That’s where the acknowledgment of that you don’t know what you don’t know is so excellent, because then you must ask a mentor for help and be willing to just be teachable! John’s book is incredible!! Thanks again 🙂

  19. Young And Fabulous Says:

    Excellent tips to ponder on, Kellie! How do you find about the things you don’t know you don’t know? I guess by practicing meditation and being in touch with my higher self? I’ve been trying to do that for a long time, I guess I need to spend more time practicing it!

    Aloha Cherrie,
    To answer your question… in John’s book, the student was ready to quit his Network Marketing business and then he found his mentor. He was very “teachable” and did everything his teacher said. One of the stories in the book talked about if we only are searching for what we think we don’t know then we will never find the secret to our success.

    For me Cherrie, this is my secret too, I know when I need guidance and I do believe in connecting to your higher self, however, in my humble opinion, our “human ego” self sometimes needs some physical help, and the same messages can come from a “human” mentor. In my journey, I’ve had many mentors and they all provide exactly what I needed at the time I needed their guidance. Also, like in the book, when you are a good student, you’ll find your mentors become your life-long friends!

    Hope that helped. Thank you for asking. Let me know if I can assist you more. You have my SkypeID. Aloha 🙂

  23. Jon Alfredsson Says:

    I do certainly agree that this is book is very informative and useful. It does not only teaches readers on how to become successful with each of their business but also a lot of things to learn PERSONALLY. I also enjoyed this book. It made me think of the things that I don’t know.. LOL! Great post kellie.

  24. Kellie Hosaka Says:

    Thank you Jon! So nice to see you here on our blog! Yes, actually all success principles are that way, life is life, personal, business, etc. Aloha 🙂

  25. Jaden Daniels Says:

    I heard that phrase…”You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know” on the Kevin Trudeau cd set I bought before I joined the Global Information Network (which was a big mistake) Anyway, I thought he was the one who came up with that. I am so glad I find out different. I am downloading the pdf file of the book, now. I couldn’t join to get the whole mp3 copy.
    Thank you for sharing. You made perfect sense to me.

    I’m glad you are reading John’s book. Oh and you can listen to the audios for free on his website, just click my link above that says “free audio”. You can’t download it, but you can listen to all 3 parts right from his site. Aloha 🙂

  27. Melissa McCloud Says:

    have i told you how much i love your fancy-pants vidz kellie? glen is amazing! i’d just like to point out that you read this book when i was in elementary school.

    but in all seriousness, i like the pearl about having fun! having fun (or being a “sapphire”, wink wink…) is a huge deal for me in my business. if working from home, for myself, with people i love wasn’t a blast, i wouldn’t do it. my generation (Gen Y) vibrates at such a high frequency! we are creators who can’t sit still and love to have a good time! it’s been a blessing to find MLM and to be able to make it fun (and WAKE UP) so many others in my team.

    party time kellie! can’t wait to see you at the next big event =)

    Thank you for your comment on our “fancy-pants vidz”!

You are teaching me a lot dear Melissa! Thank you for much for being you! Much love 🙂

    I know for a fact that there is still so much I don’t know that I don’t know. I’ll keep listening out for the answers; they will all come in good time even though sometimes, I just want them NOW!

    I’m going to listen to the audio too. Thank you for sharing Kellie and glad to be connected in the Tribe.

  33. Shannon Tecson Says:

    Aloha Kellie!
    Here I am 🙂 Great post…Simplification equals duplication. There were more than just a few key principles I learned from this book, timeless wisdom in building and caring for a team. Taking responsibility for #8 is a key area for me. Now I have the courage, to let them know in advance, “that what I’m about to tell you might sting a bit, yet I’m telling you this because I care.” I know how you and Cheryl have been so patient with me over the years, telling, correcting, showing, loving, cheering, and all fixing. Now, it’s my turn to pay it forward.
    Thanks a bunch!

  35. John Fogg Says:

    What can I say… “You’re welcome. You’re Welcome. You’re welcome.” should do for a start. I’m thrilled (proper choice of word ) You got so much from the book, and especially one of my personal favorite ideas: “You don’t know what you don’t know you don’t know.”

    Working & living with that has taken me many places. Most of all to learning how, through speaking & listening, to be OPEN and as free of mental judging as the moment (& my maturity in that moment) will allow. As you can imagine, on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being “Couldn’t be better,” I spend lots of time in the 6’s & 7’s (on a good day)

    At any rate Dear Lady, send me an eMail with your address so I can get one of the original TGN’s… signed and off to you.

    I appreciate you very, very much!
    Thank you.

    Aloha John,

    I am deeply honored and very grateful to have you comment on our article about your book! It brings me great joy to see that you are happy with the post. Thank you also for your comment on the fact that your are usually at a 6 & 7. I think all too often, we all think really successful people like you are always at a 10.

    Thank you so much for your generous offer to send me one of the original TGN books. I will email you immediately.

    Much aloha (love) & mahalo (thank you) John! 🙂
