Wrestling With Internet Network Marketing

By: Daegan Smith

I want to share a story with you that might find some value

In high school and college I wrestled. In fact if you did a little Google search right now you'd
probably find a few of my old pictures and stories relating
to it.

Well, actually I started wrestling the sixth grade. When I began wrestling I was about 5 feet and I weighed
about 190 pounds and I couldn't win a wrestling match to
save my life.

I think in middle school I probably won maybe 25% of the
matches I wrestled in. But then something happened when I got to high school. I got on the team not knowing what to expect and I saw for
the first time what I wanted out of wrestling.

Prior to that point, I didn't know what I was doing or why
and so I just sort of went with the flow. It was in high school that I defined my goal.

There was this laid back senior on the team named Eugene. He
pinned just about every single person he wrestled and for
whatever reason I thought this was the coolest thing.

I wanted to be like Eugene. As fate would have, in that same year I lost about 50
pounds and I met a man that changed my life. An unlikely short Russian man by the name of Alex, our high
school wrestling coach.

Although it was hard to understand him at first he gave me
something that I don't think any coach had ever given me

He believed in me. The stage was set.

I mimicked everything that Eugene did in practice down to
his work ethic and Coach Alex was there to support me every
step of the way.

I can't say that I got that much better as a wrestler my
freshman year in high school, but it didn't matter at that
point. I knew what I wanted and I wasn't going to stop until
I got it.

For the next 3 years I spent every summer going to off
season tournaments and wrestling camps. I even took notes
and studied them at night. The other kids thought I was a
little strange, but it didn't matter to me.

I was doing what I thought I needed to do to achieve my
goal. By the end of my senior year in high school I was All State
and an All American.

It was one of the best feelings of my life.

Getting there wasn't easy.

It took a lot of heart, studying, skill, practice,
discipline, and a measurable goal.

Hmmm . . .

Sounds a lot like network marketing?

All I mean to say by this little story is, if you have a
goal for your network marketing business that you truly
desire, a support system to help you get there, and the
drive to do it you will.

If you're not where you want to be with your business
consider it your freshman year!

You have 3 more years to grow and learn.

Actually I think network marketing is a lot easier than

I mean . . .

I've never had to skip one single meal or try to loose 10 or
more pounds in a day while network marketing while in
wrestling it was just part of the routine.

Don't skip any meals I promise it won't help you network
marketing business.
