I’m reading the Book of Luke in the Bible. When I read Chapter 6 Verse 40 “…can the blind lead the blind? Will they not both fall into a pit?”
Looking at the photo above (if any readers know who I should give credit to for the photo please let me know, Thank you) it looks like the blind leader is about to lead his followers right off the cliff to their doom! Just like these baby hippos are doing!
Two things crossed my mind when I read this.
- Anyone who’s been excited about a network marketing business at one time or another caught a glimpse of what it would feel like to realize your dreams. Many, because they don’t understand that this is a business and businesses take time to grow and become profitable, grow weary of doing their due diligence to become successful. Way too many listen to dream snatchers that cry out “pyramid!” “you’ll lose your family and friends!” blah blah blabbity blah! These dream snatchers are the blind. They cannot lead you to success, to actually realize that dream you caught a glimpse of having. If you listen to them you will surely fall off the cliff and join the rest of the unsuccessful network marketers that chose to follow the blind.
- Your sponsor may be as new as you to network marketing. Many are blind (not all) and are just learning about their new network marketing business too. If you join a really good network marketing company and you’re “blind” or new, there will be a leaders that you can call for help and advice, 3-way calls, meetings. There will be lots of training in place, conference calls, webinars, videos of successful distributors, tools, Facebook groups for support and much more. If you get introduced to a network marketing company like that then even if you’re blind, you’ll be led and guided by those who are not blind who will lead you until you can take your blindfold off and become a leader yourself. And even then, you’ll still need to stay plugged in to the system of that network marketing company.
Yes, we do have awesome leaders and a great system for success! Our team is strong! Led by multi-millionaires that started out just like a lot of us. Broke, in need of personal development but with a conviction to God and to themselves to be successful and to do what it took to be successful. Work With Us! You’ll enjoy the same leadership we do.
I may be blind right now, but I’m not being led by the blind!
