Why passion and interest are so important.
Let me take a minute to share with you why many people fail in entrepreneurship and why many succeed. It all starts with passion and interest. With it, or without, people can tell your sincerity. I will explain why.
Some people are attracted to a direct sales business model because of the low cost of entry and chances of making millions. If you look at the figures from the DSA or other the organizations that report on them, the average monthly income is less then $500. Yet these businesses are fantastic business models with better then average return on investments. The main reason the company needs the individual is for SALES.
It is easy for the individual to get excited when they are shown the expensive cars, the luxury homes and fancy vacation destinations – it is emotional. They are told how easy it is by just showing this simple business opportunity to a few friends, then those friends will show their friends and before you know it you will have more success then you ever dreamed!
The individual gets very excited about the possibility of making easy and vast amounts of money so they pay the cost of entry and get started in their new venture.
The first step many people are trained to do is to make a contact list of people they know. The second step is to get on the phone and call those people or make some kind of contact with them. And here is the first challenge any new business builder hits. Now remember, if the person is starting this entire business for the sole purpose of money, and has no passion, interest or belief in the product or service, this is where it ends for most, unless they jump to an impersonal method.
“Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will
one day become a reality.”
— Earl Nightingale: Author, The Strangest Secret, Lead the Field
FIRST LETS UNDERSTAND THE CONSCIOUS MIND – GUARDIAN OF THE GATE
Your conscious mind is the part of you that thinks and reasons. This is where your free will resides. This is where the music we listen to, the people we listen to, and the articles we read are first introduced. Your conscious mind accepts or rejects any thoughts, concepts or ideas that come in.
As you accept a thought, it is impressed upon the second part of you and your personality – Your Sub-conscious and becomes a belief.
SUBCONSCIOUSMIND – YOU AND YOUR SOUL
The subconscious is an amazing part of us! It is the center of our power and who we are. It is our soul, our spirit. I am always amazed at how many people don’t respect this part of themselves. If someone was to come dump a pile of horse dung on your from door step – how would you feel? Yet people let others do this to their subconscious every day and think nothing about it.
The subconscious controls every cell of your body. Every thought or word• your conscious mind chooses to accept is firmly in place until it is replaced with a new thought or belief. The subconscious operates in a “true” manner. ‘By Law’ it expresses itself through us in our feelings and actions. Any thought you continuously impress upon your subconscious over and over, becomes fixed in the subconscious and becomes our personality. Fixed ideas will then continue to express themselves without any conscious assistance. What you feel is mostly what is expressed.
HOW YOUR THOUGHTS AFFECT YOUR BOODY
Your body is the physical representation of you that is run by your mind.
The experts have different percentages, but most of them say that we are controlled by 10% of our conscious mind and 90% of our subconscious mind. Our bodies being the physical medium are the instrument of the mind, the complex house we live in.
What they are saying is that our thoughts create our feelings and then create our actions.
It is normal for people to get excited about an opportunity that can solve a problem they are experiencing. When people jump into an opportunity purely on the hopes or goals of money – (especially fast money or get rich quick) they are driven at first by the emotion because the sales person or person showing them the opportunity solved a problem that they were experiencing.
The subconscious says YES – a solution!!! And there is HOPE.
But when the individual goes to pickup the phone or share the opportunity, the product and/or service the subconscious speaks a different message.
I believe most people to be honest, integral and care about others. So when this person goes to make contact with someone to share their product or service purely based on MONEY, the subconscious has problems with this and starts showing itself in ACTIONS or lack of action. When only money is involved and no passion or true interest, the body does funny things…it changes our speech, or mannerisms. Many are in tune with this…but some can’t put their finger on it. They might walk away with a funny feeling or a feeling of mistrust and not know why. Remember, 90% of US is driven by the subconscious.
See the problem?
Most people CANT share something they don’t believe in if it is only about money. When the person picks up the phone their subconscious mind is already telling them – why are you calling your friends, family or contacts for money?
WHEN THE WHOLE MIND IS CONGRUENT – THE HEART MOVES INTO ACTION
Now take that same person who has passion and belief in their product or service. The entire mind is congruent – the conscious and subconscious are one and the same and take action and show action – in emotion, in passion and in integrity.
This is when more people in all businesses succeed.
