A pic and a thought to start off this week. A little surf story because you know how I roll. When my kids were learning how to surf, one of the very first skills I taught them was how to read the ocean. They learned to identify currents, tides, and how to count the sets.
For any of you unfamiliar with the ocean, waves come in sets. Sometimes a rouge wave or what we call a freak set will roll in. For the most part, they are predictable and patterned. Between each set is a period of calm. That calm period is the best time to paddle out or in. Reading the patterns keeps you safe. Sometimes, so safe you never want to leave the shore.
In network marketing, many get caught on the shore reading the sets. The “personal development trap,” I call it. We’ve all been there in some way, shape, or form. You keep studying, training, and waiting for the best time to go for it.
I say, you already know enough to get started. Start small and work your way up. By all means at least get in the water and paddle around in the shallow. Get a feel for the current and the temperature of the water. Learn from other people out there “killing it” in their business.
You’ve counted the sets, now lets paddle out! Happy Monday!
