If you were your own employer, would you be entirely satisfied with the day’s work you have done today? At the end of the day, it matters little what others think of you; what’s important is what you think about yourself. As you reflect on your day’s work, ask yourself, “Have I given 100 percent of my time and talents today? If this were my company, would I like it to be filled with hundreds of other people just like me, or would I prefer to hire individuals with a little more initiative?” When you have become the kind of person you would like to work with or have working for you, you aren’t far from the day when you will own the company — or at least become a valuable part of it. Most important, you can sleep soundly at night, serene in the knowledge that you have done your best, that you have earned your pay, and that you have met the standards of performance you require of yourself.  Napoleon Hill.

When a distributor complains that their business is not moving forward as quickly as they would like, we ask two or three questions:

  • What are you reading or listening to this week?
  • Are you sending in your daily accountability report?
  • Based on your activities this week, would you be happy with a downline made entirely of you?

Most people will admit that they have not been as focused or as diligent as they should be if they want to achieve their goals.

Rather than try to solve problems for someone, send them back to apply the solutions they already know.  That way, you’ll be creating leaders and duplicating independence.

The first quote above is from the free Napoleon Hill Foundation Newsletter.
