Last week I mentioned dream building and setting goals.
I recently re-read Think and Grow Rich. Most people who read the book think only of setting their own goals and building their own dreams. However as you read it over again and as you develop as a person you begin to realize there are stories in the book of people who built dreams for others.
Napoleon Hill built the dreams of his son who had no ears. He told him that he could accomplish anything. He made him attend regular schools. He made him believe he could achieve anything he wanted too, and he did!
I decided to apply this same philosophy in my network marketing business. I decided to envision my team as a team having success. I decided to do dreambuilding on behalf of my team. Then I began to share this dream with my team.
I’ve begun to share this vision on conference calls, in emails, on facebook, everywhere I can.
Some of my team don’t know how to dream build for themselves. Some of them don’t have their goals set high enough. Some of them don’t believe they can do it. But… If I tell them over and over they can do it… If I tell them I have seen this story… If I tell them I have seen in my dream them on stage accepting awards… Then maybe a few more of them will believe it.
Several have already shared with me that they are inspired by this dream. It remains to be seen what the outcome for my team is but I’m pretty excited by the potential.
Here is the vision I shared with my team.
A massive group from your team has won the Eagles Challenge VIP trip. They are being invited to join you and the VIPs and SOC staff at the Wyndham Resorts Orlando. You have a whole cluster of luxury rooms for your team. Send Out Cards wines & dines you. The food is delicious. The pool is just right. The excitement & passion for this business continues to build. You and your team sets amazing goals, writes them down, and develops a strong plan of action to achieve these goals during the next year.
The VIP event at the 2011 convention is amazing. Send Out Cards takes the VIPs to a Las Vegas show & delicious 5 star dinner. 100 VIPs from our team join you for the event. The fun starts at the hotel before we even leave in our luxury limos. The show is spectacular and everyone has a great time. The dinner is one of the best you’ve ever had. The camaraderie and friendship that is developed will last years. The photos & memories that are brought back will encourage even more of our team to attain VIP next year. We have fun and all of SOC takes notice of our team.
I envision the 2011 convention. I envision you standing up on stage to receive your reward. Your friends run up to the front to take photos & videos of you. Everyone is on their feet applauding. Several people raise up a cheer. The smell of the smoke machines fills your nose while the flashing lights from the visual effects splash your face. Kody has a special reward for you. It tastes salty as tears of joy stream down your face. Kody gives you a giant embrace. The roar of the crowd builds to crescendo. You pause for a moment to drink it all in. As you come to the edge of the stage we, your team, are there to greet you and cheer you on!
As Kody announces the nominees for distributor of the year our team buzzes in anticipation. As each distributor is called more and more of our team are ushered on stage. No one is surprised that you are receiving this recognition. We have seen how hard you work and how fast your business has grown. The nominees are anxious but you are calm. You know your name will be announced as distributor of the year. You set this goal a year ago & worked hard to accomplish it. The crowd erupts and cheers for you as your name is called. Your team, your friends, and fellow leaders on stage rush forward to congratulate you. The music blasts and the lights dance. The hair on your arm stands up electrified. Your mouth even tastes sweet like a savory victory. You have achieved your dreams. You are the 2011 Send Out Cards distributor of the year.
What do you think? Would this vision inspire you?
Are you beginning to see the power of dreambuilding for not only you, but your team?
