I shared this recently with one of our Mexico leaders and I think you will relate. This time of year can get frustrating. I do not wish to say we have to buy into the "Holiday" way of thinking. Certainly people can keep growing. At the same time, I am a realist and I know that some of you have seen your business slow a bit and you are worried. Please read this for me and take courage partner! 2017 is in sight and you will instantly regain your passion and your momentum. Rest up a bit. No shame in it. Come January 1 we will hit this thing harder than we ever have before. Before us lies new horizons, big bright futures and lots and lots of success. You should start to feel it in your heart. In your bones. It's coming. You should anxiously await for January 1st just as you did for Christmas Day as a child! It is coming!!!!
I Often tell my people that the business comes in seasons. A season for planting. A season for nurturing and weeding and then a season of Plenty and harvest. Such is the flow. And we learn that we must stay consistent even in the slower months. The work we do today will not necessarily pay us today or even tomorrow. We do not trade time for money in Isagenix and so the reward is not immediate. We learn that anything worthwhile takes investment and time to build. The work we put in this week will probably bare fruit 3-4 weeks down the road. For people that do not understand this concept, and who are used to immediate gratification, this can be very discouraging and even defeating.
It is the same with consultants. You have 10 active and then 7 and then all of the sudden 4 and you think oh no what am I doing wrong!!? I can promise you that you are not doing anything wrong. It is those people who dropped off who are not motivated. And so you cannot resurrect the dead often times, it is easier to give birth than to perform that miracle! So we go and find new more legitimate ones in time. Ones that will stick. Héctor and I had a great conversation over lunch and he shared that with one person he might give everything he has to support them, all of his time, resources and energy. And yet little comes of that person. Whereas to another he might give very little and yet they still of their own fruition go out and make amazing things happen! This has been my experience as well. We cannot do this for people. We cannot want it more for them than they do for themselves. Those who are ready to run will run. We just point the way and in some cases we have to even get out of their way!!! In other cases like with Clau, they show us the way! Clau said to Me once, "I want you to mentor me." I responded, "I actually think you can mentor me!"
The business also comes in waves much like the ocean. A small week followed by a larger one. Then small, small, small and then "wow!" A big one! It's those big ones that naturally keep us coming back. 😁. We realize that the leverage is working and the rewards are there. Imagine one day, your weak week could be 10 cycles. And even beyond that you could have a slow week of 100 cycles in a week. I have realized this myself as have so many others. A slow week for me would be to drop below the 250 threshold.
You are doing great. Each of you! Keep learning and growing. Nothing pays like Isagenix.
