AlignmentOver the years, I have been guilty of flitting from one company to the next, believing  that each one would be ‘it.’ But I never made money and I failed to recruit.

Lately, I have been asking myself why we are always searching for the next shiny thing?

I can of course only speak for myself but, hands on heart, I was chasing the money. I was desperate to have the six figure income or, indeed, any income.

But, since my epiphany in February, I have realised that it isn’t about the money. I joined a well known weight loss company last year. Most of the team I was with were successful. I bought body measurement scales and I got in front of people. But I was uncomfortable with talking to women about their weight. To be honest, I hated it. So I failed. No surprise really.

Many of us follow the money. But a better strategy is to find a company that aligns with your personality. For me, I realised that I like systems. I have a strategic mind that loves to work with things that make other things work. I thrive on problem solving.  When you find the company, product or system that aligns with the core essence of who you are, you generate a vibration into your world, attracting people to you that like that energy.

I truly believe that if you can do this, you will be successful. For instance, imagine you took up golf and you didn’t really like it. How easy would it be to persuade friends to join you for a game? But, supposing you started playing tennis and loved it, you would seek out people that loved tennis and persuade them to come have a game with you.

Business, in my opinion, is very much like that
