Human beings, we are a mass of insecurities. Shielded by our persona and powered by our ego, we battle our way through life doing the best that we can. If your ego is strong enough, you can, no doubt, thrust through the niggling doubts and bound your way to success.
But, how about if your ego is fragile? What if your insecurities have grabbed hold of you, dragged you to a cliff edge and has you teetering on the edge, looking down at a 250 feet drop? What happens then? Who talks you down?
In the story, our superhero would swoop down, pick you up, kiss you and carry you to safety. Hoorah!
I repeat ‘Who talks you down?’
We all know that there is a 97% failure rate in network marketing. Let’s, for a minute, consider that a high percentage of people who failed simply jumped, of merely toppled off the edge. How about that? Do you think that could be a possibility?
People fail for a reason. I truly don’t believe that 97% of them are lazy quitters. What if we could work with people’s insecurities, do you think that we could help them to grow, stop them from running? Do you believe that with some support, we could teach them to use their own wings and enable them to help another person?
I refuse to give up on anyone. Lots of people gave up on me. My own brother once told me that I was a failure! No one came to my rescue when I stood on the ledge shaking with fear, alone, uncertain if I would lie smashed up on the ground if I jumped. But I did jump.
As I leaped and started to fall, I felt my wings sprouting. They were big enough to keep me airborne and they carried me to a better place.
I don’t care that no one helped me. I needed to jump because something deep inside of me told me that I WAS strong enough.
You may not agree with my opinions but I stand true to my commitment to help others off that ledge to stand in their own circle of strength.
PS: I have a pair of blue tights and red pants in medium, if anyone wants to borrow them 🙂
