I wrote this message to my Send Out Cards team today. I thought it is a good message to share with everyone as there will be times in ANY company where you have problems. Here is the message I wrote:
As you know we are going through some big changes at Send Out Cards.
I wanted to share with you one of my favorite quotes from one of my network marketing mentors. He says:
“You can make excuses or you can make money, but you can’t make both.”
In Send Out Cards you can allow yourself to get sucked down into the bugs and problems with the new card editor OR you can rise above it all and continue working extra hard and building your business.
Now which person do you think is going to be the most successful?
The person who allowed the bugs to hold them back? The person who blamed their lack of success on Send Out Cards? The person who took time off waiting on the problems to be fixed before promoting SOC.
OR the person who forged ahead. The person who worked twice as hard to grow their business during the difficult times.
Let’s put it another way.
What is Jordan doing? Do you think Jordan is making excuses? Or do you think Jordan is out there working extra hard?
I know Diane is working extra hard. I am too.
The leaders don’t allow these little problems to bother them. In the grand scheme of things they are TINY problems and EVERY company goes through phases like this.
Some companies go through issues where they have problems fullfilling orders. Maybe the demand is so high the product is out of stock for long periods of time. Some companies go through issues with investigations from the Attorney General. Some companies go through financial troubles. Some companies go through periods of bad publicity with 60 minutes or whatever doing investigative reports on their company.
We don’t have those issues. Our little issues with the new card editor are tiny and these issues will go away soon.
I encourage you all to do whatever you can now to work extra hard at building your business. Come this winter when we’re experiencing our holiday rush, when all the bugs are worked out of the system, when we have a 2nd printer in Ohio, when we have new gift items available… You’re all going to be rewarded for your persistence and hard work.
So you can make money or excuses.
Which one do you want to make?
