Call To Action – Your Story Part 3 Aug 22, 2013
I noticed in the Heading that I said Call To Action – Your Story…. But I’m really telling MY STORY.. What I’m saying here is that you need to create your story. A story that you can tell from the stage when you’re given an opportunity to stand before thousands of folks who are anxious to know who you are and what YOUR STORY is. People want to know whats so special about YOU that allows you to create the lifestyle you want and the lifestyle THEY want…. So we tell them…. WE’RE NOT SPECIAL… We’re JUST LIKE YOU…. We have had to struggle , just like you may be struggling now… but SOON,,, you’ll get that first email in your auto responder… maybe even while you’re asleep… You’ll wake up one morning and have two or three… new emails addresses… and your auto responder will be fired up again AUTOMATICALLY sending those folks emails about your business… Giving them the same information you got that started you on your way to success. AUTOMATICALLY!
On to “the rest of the story” as Paul Harvey would say. I re-read what I wrote about my dad last night and it made me realize just how innovative he was. He didn’t have an automobile, but packed up, left home with plans to stay with cousins in another town. He took off, found a job and saved enough money to relocate all of us… mom and three boys. It was about that time that my older brother went into the Navy, so he didn’t move back in with us for about 4 years. By that time dad (and mom) had moved us (twice by that time) into a rental home. I also hadn’t realized just how great mom was during all this. She was probably the motivator that got dad to move out and find something better than the Cotton Mill work environment. After we left that environment we seemed to become more of a family, with dad working day jobs and mom working day jobs. This meant we had dinner at home every night as a family. Dinner was usually something like cheese grits (if you’re not a southerner you probably don’t know what that is)… we also had lots of cheese spaghetti.
At some point with both mom and dad working, we eventually bought a home. Dad was making about $50/week and mom was making something less than that working at the college as a cook. But we did pretty well as a family. Each of us grew up working during the summers and even after school if it wasn’t football or baseball season. I loved playing both those sports, high school and what’s called American Legion Baseball in the summer. I can remember getting up and being at work at the shrimp factory by 4am, then having baseball practices every afternoon unless we had a game. The games were always late and mostly out of town so I usually got to bed late… So we all knew how to work hard.
After I started dating Diane in the 9th grade, I got to work summer jobs in their restaurant. My job was to clean fish every day as they come in off the boats first thing every morning. We also had lots of shrimp to peel and put away for the winter months. I really got pretty good at cleaning fish.
I’ll stop my story for now and pick up on it more tomorrow. I want to tell you how I got interested in Network Marketing after a lot of “absolute refusal” to go see what it was about.
For now, I’m excited about Internet Marketing. It’s a Godsend, because my biggest efforts and greatest fears in Network Marketing were in the “contacting and inviting”. If someone said NO… I would just let it go and not have anyone at the meetings…. But I tried.
Internet Marketing gives us the chance to go international, using a system that was developed by Dave Wood and Dave Sharpe after years of trying “other things”. I just follow their system. They say “blog everyday”, so I blog every day. They say “market daily”, so I market daily. They say “listen to training audio’s and videos”, so I watch and listen to audios and videos. They say “read daily” in a good motivational book, I read daily in a good motivational book. Let the system work!!! That’s what brings success.
So for now… that’s it for tonight. CLICK HERE to enroll in my email program (for free) and to watch a FREE video about Internet Marketing.

Remember, John Maxwell in his book “HOW SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE THINK”, said “Those who develop the process of good thinking can rule themselves-even while under an oppressive ruler or in other difficult circumstances.”
