Happy 4th of July! | July 5, 2010

Celebrate The Reason For The Day

I want to wish all my friends the best Independence Day ever. Before I move on to the topic of network marketing and working from home, I want to remind everyone why we celebrate this day, so bear with me for a small demonstration of my love for the good old USA.

The Declaration of Independence

“When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. …”

Thus began the grand experiment in self governance that is the United States of America.

Begin Your Own Grand Experiment

Network marketing can provide you your own personal declaration of independence. Lest you jump into network marketing thinking you’re going to get wealthy overnight, let me  remind you that there was a long road to hoe between the Declaration of Independence and actual independence. This little thing called the Revolutionary War, or the War for Independence, came before actual independence, and so did the intra-colony squabbling over what type of government we should have. There were many heartbreaks, heartaches, losses and setbacks between the Declaration and the reality of Independence.

Do you think you’re going to go from where ever you are right now to where you want to be overnight? The odds are against you. But, are you willing to suffer through your own war for independence? Are you willing to suffer the slings and arrows of loved ones who don’t believe in you? Are you willing to search for the right mentors who will help you learn what you need to learn to achieve your independence?

Do you know what independence means to you? What type of freedom are you looking for? The Declaration was a statement of where we wanted to go as a country. Have you stated where you want to go with your independence? What  do you want independence from? Independence from the 9 to 5? Independence from having a boss? Independence from a job you hate? From a job that you think makes no difference in the larger scope of things?

Are you willing to fight for your independence? Are you willing to work and learn and fail and work and learn and work some more to make your dreams come true?

Your Why

You may have noticed from all my questions in the previous section that being willing to start on your path to independence and success, and stick with it till you reach it has a lot to do with your why. Why do you want what you want? Is it strong enough to keep you motivated through whatever self-imposed barriers you’ve created or the doubts of others, or the rejections you might get. To help you figure out your why and locate what will drive you to success, see my earlier blog “Why, Oh Why.”

Once I Know Why, What’s Next?

Once you know why you’re going into business, you have to figure out what you’re going to do and who you’re going to do it with. In other words what home business or opportunity are you going to go to work with. You should find a company to work with or a business to do that aligns well with your why for doing it and thus increase or maximize your chances for success.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”  – from A Return to Love, by Marianne Williamson ©1992
