‎"There are only two options regarding commitment. You're either in or out. There's no such thing as a life in-between." 
- Pat Riley

This Pat Riley statement is so true. Whether it is sports you want to excel at, music or Network Marketing, you have to consciously make the choice to succeed - choosing if you are in or out - then go strong and hard at succeeding. There is no in-between with success. You must decide to do something, find out what needs to be done to accomplish the task at hand, and then make the commitment to DO it full out. From there, put blinders on, focus and do whatever it takes to achieve your goals. You must fully ENGAGE and make it happen.

As an operatically trained singer, my voice teacher asked for my commitment from the get-go, and said to me when I was a young 18 year old freshman at the University of Utah, "if you are going to be an operatic singer, you must commit to that, own it, then practice day and night to achieve success with it." So, that's exactly what I did. I rented a practice room on campus, and spent literally six hours a day in that room (and various rehearsal halls), practicing, memorizing songs and scores, learning music, did the necessary vocal exercising, studied legendary operatic singers, attended classes, rehearsed into the wee hours of the morning with operatic and oratorio productions, attended language classes in German, French and Italian, attended the required classes and coaching in music history, conducting and theory, more rehearsals, performed in master classes, recitals, and the list goes on and on. I did what I had to do to see myself successful with leads in the opera's, solo spots with the Utah Symphony, and major roles with numerous music organizations, productions and national telecasts. It was an exciting and exhausting time! Was it easy? No. Was it rewarding? Yes. Did I achieve success with singing? Yes, and I loved it, and still use those skills today with voice teaching and music directing.

People have always asked me what my "secret" for success is with Network Marketing. How is it that I always realize those big five and six figure a month checks? That's an easy answer. Commitment and hard work. I get fully ENGAGED in business building right out the gate. And the rewards for hard work are huge, folks. But without committing to business building (doing what ya gotta do), you won't succeed in this business. You have to decide to be "in or out." 

The phrase, "if you work this business casually, you become a casualty," puts your commitment level into perspective. And with Network Marketing, there's always been a path to follow in business building. Nothing new. No shortcuts. You write your goals, determine your "why" (your passion), start writing your list of people to contact, use your sponsor to validate with three-way calling, meet face-to-face with appointments doing presentations, hold In-Home meetings, meet new people, gather business cards, and always stay plugged in with all that your team is doing. You FULLY ENGAGE. 

Most people never fully ENGAGE. To engage is to immediately take action - meet with your sponsor and go through that 48-Hour checklist. Then book your six weeks of Launch meetings and do them with your sponsor. Then check off Director, and get to Executive as soon as you can. From there, you simply and aggressively go to work to reach Regional then National. You must FULLY ENGAGE.

Never miss weekly Thursday 18 Minute Biz Briefing calls! These calls keep you and your team pumped and moving forward. Don't stop talking to people, adding to your Prospect 200 list, sample two a day, everyday. Set the example for your team to emulate and follow. Gather your team consistently. Get them all signed in for communications at Get them on the Saturday morning Success Strategies training. ENGAGE them in everything that is going on with telephone calls, email updates, text messaging reminders, recognize them, and help them succeed. 

Build your business and achieve your goals. Stretch those goals as the small ones are achieved. Don't settle for so-so business building. The sky is the limit with Voyager and the V3 product. People want desperately what we've got. They just don't know about it yet. It all starts with your commitment (in or out) then seeing yourself immediately ENGAGED in the process - using the 4-Step System - being a leader who knows where they are going and then doing whatever it takes to get to the top of the pay plan. Don't let yourself or your people slip through the cracks. Love them enough to ENGAGE them in the business building process. Fully ENGAGE and see your dreams come true! (Click below to listen.)
