Why You Should Create Your Mission Statement For Success In Your Network Marketing Business
This weekend I helped a friend celebrate her son’s first birthday. For all of you with children you know what a milestone this is. It was a great day. Cake, Elmo and Big Bird balloons, chips, pizza, bounce house, and lots of happy loud children. Oh, I almost forgot the music. The music was great until some older kids showed up and then I wished I had a sensor button because the music suddenly become very grown. I tapped the father of the birthday boy on his shoulder and asked him if this was still a children's party. He assured me that it was to which I replied “then this music is very inappropriate”. He immediately walked over to his laptop and changed it to something more appropriate for the children and adults alike.
What Was Even More Shocking?…
NOT ONE other adult in that room mentioned a word or seemed bothered by the profanity. Have we become so desensitized that we don’t even notice when garbage is being pumped into our subconscious?
You may be wondering what on earth this has to do with business. Or better yet, YOUR business. Everything! Are you willing to put your foot down for what you believe in? Are you so busy trying to please everyone to the point that you have forgotten why you are doing what you’re doing? It was because of my conviction that I stood up for what I felt was right. Honestly…I didn’t want my children (8 & 6) listening to the profanity that was blasting from the speakers. That was totally out of line with my mission as it relates to being a mother. I was so moved by that experience that I came home and wrote my mission statement. Do you know what your mission is?
Every Fortune 500 Company has one so why not YOU? Oprah, Starbucks, Tiffany & Co., Nike, they all have a mission statement. They’re expected to have one. A mission statement is a short, written statement that lays out the purpose of your company. Having one serves as a reminder as to WHY you are in business. It helps you keep on track when you feel like giving up. Now you may not have a million dollar business or a million dollar idea but you can have a million dollar vision.
Start thinking like a Fortune 500 Company because honestly, if you are in network marketing you have all the tools necessary to build a multi-million dollar business. As upset as I was over the music this weekend, it confirmed for me my mission as a mother and prompted me to create my mission statement for my business. Now if you haven’t done the same for your business I encourage you to do so now and share it with the world.
I'd love to know your thoughts so if you'd be so kind as to leave a comment that would be great. You are also free to share with your friends in internet land. Until next time…
