Live magnificently and enjoy the process as you build your MLM Network Marketing Business

“Before enlightenment chop wood and carry water. After enlightenment chop wood and carry water.” – Ancient Chinese Proverb

A typical conversation I have with individuals (almost weekly) is something to the effect of: “When I get to this point in my business/career, I will…. or when I get to this income level, I will… or when I achieve this reward, then I will… These statements are always followed by some action or behavior that they are going to put into practice AFTER they achieve or acquire their “magic bullet.”


– When I get this next level in my MLM business, then I will spend more time with my family. – When I make $$$ then I will donate a portion of my income to a worthy cause.

We could come up with numerous examples but I think you get the gist. When I hear this comment, regardless of the context or the promise, my answer is typically, “No you probably won’t.” Why? Because if the habit has not been developed it will not be acted upon. Life does not miraculously change until YOU change.

The ancient proverb above is telling us that enlightenment, success, happiness (you choose the term) is not a destination but a process.

You and I both know that no award, no pin or leadership level, no income, no new toy, no promotion will make us happy and/or successful. Life will not miraculously change when your next MLM goal is attained. You will still chop wood, carry water, pay bills, and wonder sometimes where the money to pay those bills is going to coming from.

The difference comes in the attitude with which you do these things. When true success and happiness (enlightenment) is reached you will learn that the journey IS the adventure, the excitement, and the fun of life. The journey is success and happiness – And the journey never ends.

How can you become more successful and happy now:

1.  A Course in Miracles says, “I can choose peace rather than this!” Choose to be at peace and enjoy what life is giving you RIGHT NOW!

2.  The beginner/amateur hopes and wishes… the professional KNOWS. Carl Jung when asked, “Do you believe in God” answered, “I don’t believe… I know,” knowing is power! KNOW that whatever is happening right now is part of a larger plan happening perfectly for your own personal growth, development and betterment.

3.  Develop good habits now. Live and invest in the things that you say are important to you. Make your beliefs, your habits, and your actions congruent. Don’t do them “someday” do them today.

4.  Realize that you never own anything. Every “thing” you have will someday belong to someone else when you are gone.  You are only using “your things” for a time. Enjoy them — but don’t let them own you.

5.  Success and happiness is not some means to eliminate life’s daily tasks.

You will always be (at some level) chopping wood and carrying water. Allow your MLM Business to be your passion and your love will manifest through action.

Make your life magnificent and enjoy the process, let me know how that works and sounds to you!
