We are at the 3rd fork on our Road To Success. If you missed the 1st decision on your Road To Success, click on Is Social Media Marketing, Internet Marketing and Network Marketing Confusing? (click on title), and the 2nd decision on your Road To Success, Now That You’ve Decided To Be An Entrepreneur, What’s The Next Step? (click on title).
Our 1st decision was to become an entrepreneur, our 2nd decision was to work with a team, and now our 3rd decision is to decide which team to work with or which company. By the way, if your 2nd decision was to work alone, you may want to continue reading to have some information for the future.
Cooperation Or Competition
Our current education system encourages students to work alone and in college we are working against our classmates because most college classes grade on a “curve”, which means if our friend gets a 99%, our friend just caused our grade to go down. Also, in the job world, if there was a Manager position open, many employees competed for that position. If my friend got the position and we both applied, I lost the position. In school and in the job market, we are taught competition instead of cooperation. On the Road To Success, long term happiness and success is always a result of cooperation because nobody really wins if someone has to lose.
Win-Win Or Win-Lose
When I started my home based network marketing business, I was taught that we all worked as a team, and they encouraged everyone to get promoted. In fact, my sponsor encouraged me to go to a “higher position” in our company than himself! This shocked me initially because I didn’t understand that in the network marketing world, and in the entrepreneurial world that Robert Kiyosaki talks about, you work as a TEAM (Together Everyone Achieves More). It is through cooperation that people and companies truly win because it’s win-win! Both sides win, there is no loser. I love working as a team because I knew that I was good at only a few things, and other complicated topics “went over my head” It was such a relief to me when I found out that I was good enough, because I could always find others who were good at things I was very weak in. At first it felt like cheating , you know like copying someone’s test paper in school, however, I was assured that it was Teamwork!! Yeah!!
Choosing Your Company Or Team
If we go back to our goals which we completed in the 2nd decision on our Road To Success, we will see our life’s plan in 5 years, 10 years, 20 years, etc., and our decision will become very clear as to what we are looking for.
Here’s a video of what I believe is important in choosing a company and your future:
Are we are seeing how the pieces are starting to come together? Our 1st decision was Entrepreneur or Employee, then our 2nd decision was Work Alone or with a Team, then our 3rd decision is What Company matches our requirements and goals for our future. Pretty simple huh? Our last blog post in this 4 part series is titled “Dreams Can Come True By Following The Road To Success“.
