Want to get better? If you are always learning, you will always be improving, and the compound effect of this is staggering. It's the same with working out. You don't see the results the next day - well, I always believe I do when flexing in the mirror. But, over time, you will see it. And, it’s the same in our business - you might not see a sudden change in income the next day or, in my case, the first year, but you will see the improvement over time.
As my background is from the corporate world, the one thing I always struggled with was being happy for others' success. I always had that scarcity mindset that there is only room for one boss. And I took this mindset with me when I started in network marketing. I used to actually feel angry when I watched people walking across the stage at network marketing events. I’d ask myself how the heck can they be there and not me?! However, once I started to understand that our industry has an abundance of places for people at the top then everything changed. There's room for everyone to succeed.
