I have heard the saying throughout my years of network marketing
that a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. Developing a strong
link between business and people, products and up line training systems
is a learning process and will help you with developing and cultivating
networking business and the goal of realizing your dreams and financial
security that you are in search of.
One of my favorite authors, John C, Maxwell, wrote in his book,
Developing the Leader Within You, that leadership means to influence
others. He says, "Everyone talks about it; few understand it. Most people
want it; few achieve it." This is so profound. He defines leadership as the
ability to get followers. Many think that having the ability to get followers
makes them great leaders or shall I say put them in a leadership position.
In network marketing, followers are what we actually want. But, we must
keep in mind that this business of network marketing is like a volunteer fire
department or a volunteer army. People choose to participate and they also
choose to follow you or not. This participation depends in part on how great
of a leader you are.
