The Why That Makes You Cry
Category : MLM
You may have been told to write down your “why”, and you may have been told that it needs to make you cry.
In the classic “Think And Grow Rich”, Napoleon Hill talks about having a “burning desire“. He also talks about how you need to combine positive emotion into your thoughts and visualizations because it makes them so much more powerful in attracting the things you desire.
Many people associate crying with sadness, which is a negative emotion. So how do we go from a “why that makes you cry” to a visualization with positive emotions?
First we need to find your REAL “why” by peeling the onion (which makes you cry, right?) When most people are asked why they want to be in MLM their first answer is superficial. It’s something like “I want financial freedom” or “I want residual income” or “I want time freedom to be with my family”. But let’s peel the onion and see what we get. What does financial freedom mean to you; what will you do as a result? Stop being enslaved in a 9-5 job that you despise? What will you do with ongoing residual income? Will you travel the world or will you buy acreage or a farm or a mansion on a golf course? What will you do with your family, and where will you go, if you have more time together?
Following this process, you should be able to develop a detailed visualization of where you want to be in the future. Add colors, sounds, and smells to your sights. Make a mental movie of the life you desire to create. And attach all of the positive emotions you can. What will this life FEEL like? If you peel the onion deep enough you will visualize a life of your dreams. Will the dream make you cry? Or is it the gap between where you are now and that dream? Maybe both.
If your burning desire to attain that life is strong enough, you will not quit until you get there. Obstacles and setbacks WILL occur! This is hard work and a 2-5 year plan, not an overnight get-rich-quick scheme. Money that comes fast doesn’t keep coming week after week. A business that delivers ongoing income has to be built. So your desire must be strong enough to get you over the bumps. It must also be strong enough that you are willing to make some sacrifices to get it, knowing that the end result will be totally worth the price.
Napoleon Hill outlines the whole process for achieving your desired life but it all starts with that burning desire. You can add dream boards and affirmations and all sorts of reinforcing elements but without a strong desire to achieve a very specific outcome you’ll go nowhere. It is simply the Law Of Attraction at work; you attract what you focus on so you need to define what to focus on!
