Don’t be the Robert Falcon Scott of the Network Marketing Industry..By
In 1911, Two groups of Explorers set off on incredible journey. Thought they used different strategies and routes, the leaders of the teams had the same goal: to be the first in history to reach the South Pole. Their stories are life-and-death illustrations of the Law of Navigation. “John C. Maxwell”
In his book “The 21 Laws Irrefutable LAW OF LEADERSHIP”
The Story starts off with both men planing their strategy on how to reach the South Pole. Ronald Amundsen with careful painstaking details, critically thought about his route and the things he would use to get there. He even did some research of the methods of Eskimos and other experience arctic travelers and analyze the best course of action. He even thought about how to transport equipment and supplies by dog sled. He chose experts in the skiing field, and also had expert dog handlers help him on the mission. He even came up with strategy of how the dogs and the explores would rest, so that way they could make it there and back. There is so much more if go and read the story and the journal he kept of the exploration.
Now before I go onto the next part I want to stop here to ask you a question. “Did you have this type of care for your MLM or Network Marketing Business?” do you really strategically plan out your marketing plan, and continually evaluate how you’re going to start this wonderful mission in starting your business.
I’m so amazed how lazy some people are and how they care for there business in general. I think some people think that this is just a hobby, and I really don’t care too much about it. Well, “WHY WOULD YOU START A BUSINESS WITH THAT THINKING?”
Okay Now let’s continue with the story at hand. Robert Falcon Scott who was a British Naval Officer and even had some exploring in the Antarctic area. He really didn’t plan as well. His thought was too use motorized sledges and ponies. After 5 days the motors gave out, and soon as the ponies reached Trans antarctic Mountains they had to kill them all, because they couldn’t withstand the cold temperatures. So then they had to pull the sleds of all the equipment and supplies. Also Robert didn’t plan the gear out very well either. There gear started to wear down and they developed frostbite, and also their goggles were inadequate and everyone became snowblind. Also on all of that, he didn’t plan out the food and water out correctly and they were always low on both.
The story get’s worst for Robert and his crew, but one good thing was they did make it to the South Pole, but none of them made it back. The only reason we know of there journey is because they found journals of the crew. One thing they noted was Robert the leader of the expedition said “I am just going outside; I may be sometime.” Then he walk out into a blizzard.
So ask yourself what man are you. Have you seriously sat down and mapped out the course for this venture you about to partake in, or have you jump hoping some how everything will work out. Also if you have done the later it’s still not too late to put together a strategy for success.
I hope that this will help you critically think about your business and set you on a path, that will lead you to your South Pole experience. Please take this to heart and don’t become part of the graveyard of people who have started in the industry only to end in death of the dreams and goals that they wanted to reach.
