The Right Time to BE Successful in MLM

Written by Andre Best

Recently I was watching one of Bob Proctor's videos from his 'Born Rich' seminars and was hit with this powerful insight.

Inrepparttar very last video ofrepparttar 122500 video set Bob walked on stage with an hourglass and set it onrepparttar 122501 podium he was standing next to.

He proceeded to explainrepparttar 122502 concept ofrepparttar 122503 hourglass and how it dramatically changed his life when he reflected on what was contained withinrepparttar 122504 'concept' of this time-keeping object.

I'll explain.

You see, I got my insightrepparttar 122505 night after I watchedrepparttar 122506 video.

There was something about his simple explanation ofrepparttar 122507 hourglass concept. And yet when I was watchingrepparttar 122508 video I couldn't quite put my finger on exactly what it was that was trying to break free into my conscious mind.

Regardless, I did haverepparttar 122509 breakthrough and it just about floored me.

You see, when Bob showed usrepparttar 122510 hourglass, he was actually showing us 'time'.

Yes, time.

Second by second and then minute by minuterepparttar 122511 hourglass is a way to actually SEE time.

Sound weird?

I'll explain more.


You see,repparttar 122512 hourglass is just that. An hourglass shaped object, usually made out of glass and shaped like a cylinder that had a string tightly pulled across it's midsection asrepparttar 122513 glass was drying after being blown into shape. The top andrepparttar 122514 bottom ofrepparttar 122515 hourglass are sealed, but only after one of them is mostly filled with a small grainy material, usually sand.

Hence, 'the sands of time'.

The small midsection is large enough to only allow a couple or a few grains of sand to fall throughrepparttar 122516 'opening' at any particular time.

Eventually, whenrepparttar 122517 hourglass has been standing upright for a lengthy period of time, all ofrepparttar 122518 sand has dropped fromrepparttar 122519 upper half ofrepparttar 122520 hourglass intorepparttar 122521 bottom half ofrepparttar 122522 hourglass.

If a person wants to dorepparttar 122523 dropping ofrepparttar 122524 sand again, they only need turnrepparttar 122525 hourglass upside-down andrepparttar 122526 process starts all over.

Now, let's get torepparttar 122527 good stuff.


Picture in your mindrepparttar 122528 hourglass standing upright. The sand is dropping intorepparttar 122529 lower chamber. Grain by grain.


After grain.

After grain.

After grain...

Partial second by partial second by partial second.

A perfect time-piece. Regardless of what is being timed.

The hourglass keeps 'working' as long as there is sand inrepparttar 122530 upper chamber andrepparttar 122531 hourglass is kept upright.

Now, you need to work with me on this time stuff...


Imaginerepparttar 122532 lower chamber ofrepparttar 122533 hourglass as representingrepparttar 122534 'past'. Everything that's fallen into this chamber has done just that. It's 'fallen'. It's done with it's falling. It's over. Done.



Also, imaginerepparttar 122535 upper chamber as representingrepparttar 122536 'future'. All that is yet to happen. All that is yet to occur. Not yet here. Not yet fallen. Not yet gone intorepparttar 122537 past. Waiting.

The future.

Byrepparttar 122538 nature ofrepparttar 122539 hourglass, allrepparttar 122540 contents of this chamber will 'have to' fall intorepparttar 122541 lower chamber. This is a law of nature. Gravity.


And last, imaginerepparttar 122542 small squeezed area inrepparttar 122543 middle ofrepparttar 122544 hourglass asrepparttar 122545 'present'. This is what is occurring NOW. This isrepparttar 122546 transition fromrepparttar 122547 'future' upper chamber torepparttar 122548 'past' lower chamber. All movement occurs here.

Future turns into past here.

The rate of occurrence at this point inrepparttar 122549 hourglass shape is set byrepparttar 122550 nature ofrepparttar 122551 shape ofrepparttar 122552 hourglass. Only a set number of grains of sand can fall through this area at any one particular time.

The sands can only fall in one direction. Down. The sand can't be rushed. Or slowed. The only real activity that is occurring in this entire structure and object is occurring in this tiny point of space.

The present.


Now, let's move further with this and get into how this insight can really impact YOUR MLM business...

If you will, continue imagining with me.

Imagine that each grain of sand represents an 'experience' you're having during your existence on this planet.

Imagine that each grain of sand as it falls throughrepparttar 122553 hourglass 'present-zone' represents a particular point in time along your time on this planet.

Imagine that allrepparttar 122554 grains of sand inrepparttar 122555 upper chamber are experiences you haven't had yet. And allrepparttar 122556 grains of sand inrepparttar 122557 lower chamber are experiences you've had and they're in your 'past'. They're done.

Now, let's put YOU inrepparttar 122558 picture. Where ARE you inrepparttar 122559 picture?

Where do you belong?

Where do your business efforts belong?

Where should your thoughts belong?

Where should your planning belong?

Where should your prospecting efforts and concentrated business- building efforts be occurring?

Where, I take that back...WHEN should you be living?

Inrepparttar 122560 upper chamber?

The lower one?

The 'present-zone' inrepparttar 122561 middle?

Would you like to knowrepparttar 122562 answer to these questions in relation to howrepparttar 122563 vast majority of people live their lives? It's simple.

The vast majority of people on this planet EXIST inrepparttar 122564 'present', THINKING aboutrepparttar 122565 'past, and HOPING for a good 'future'.

I ask you...

Does this describe you?

Do you spendrepparttar 122566 vast majority of your time as you attempt to build your MLM business thinking about how it won't work 'because it didn't work before'? And how you haverepparttar 122567 grain of sand inrepparttar 122568 lower chamber to prove it? Orrepparttar 122569 fifty grains of sand?

Do you think that all you have to do is wait until that magic grain of sand comes rushing fromrepparttar 122570 future and through your 'present' time and unloads all its riches into your life?

Most people do that.

And then they die after that last grain of sand drops.

Are you waiting for that magic MLM 'heavy-hitter' to enter your 'present-zone'?

Are you sitting back and waiting for your present MLM business to grow itself without you really ever lifting a finger to MAKE it happen? To get it in gear?

MAKING the Time to Do Your Deal

Written by Andre Best

If there's one thing that's become crystal-clear to me recently duringrepparttar past several months - it'srepparttar 122499 dilemma of findingrepparttar 122500 time to do my MLM business.

Withrepparttar 122501 advent of coordinatingrepparttar 122502 construction of a room-addition on our house, having my wife spend five weeks inrepparttar 122503 hospital to delayrepparttar 122504 birth of our twin boys, and then have our boys spend two months inrepparttar 122505 hospital intensive care nursery, AND constructing a website for my wife's home- based has been - to put it lightly...busy.

But you know what?

We're all 'busy'.

And to you, as a beginning networker working that list of MLM leads you just bought, those are all just excuses.

Especially if you'rerepparttar 122506 person onrepparttar 122507 other end of my phone and were wanting me to join you in your fledgling MLM home- based biz-op.

I'll explain...

If you asked me to join you on your path to success with your main company and I came up with all that stuff in order so that I could give yourepparttar 122508 impression that I was 'just too busy'...well, it would just be MLM human nature for you to view all that as another excuse from a prospect.

MLM human nature that would cause you to say "NEXT!" and then move on to your next cold-call prospect.

But what if I said to you something torepparttar 122509 effect of...

"I can't do that MLM stuff right now,repparttar 122510 basketball finals are just starting on four satellite channels."


"I'm inrepparttar 122511 middle of reading this really cool book, call me later."


"I can't do that prospecting stuff inrepparttar 122512 evening, I have to go to bed early so I can get a good night's sleep and be rested for work tomorrow."


"I can't make those calls to those fresh MLM leads onrepparttar 122513 east coast first thing tomorrow morning. I have to have breakfast and read my daily morning newspaper."

Pretty lame excuses, eh? I wouldn't blame you if you wrote off anyone saying that kind of stuff.

But you know what?

How many of you 'busy' yourself up with that kind of stuff on a daily basis?

How many hours a week do YOU spend watchingrepparttar 122514 television, or readingrepparttar 122515 newspaper or that favorite novella every day or still thinking you need eight to nine hours of sleep EVERY night?

I'll hazard a guess that most of you do. Heaven knows, I did at one time.

There was a time before I got serious about networking and working my MLM business that I too thought that I 'had' to watch 2-3 hours of television every day. And sleep a good eight hours in order to feel rested and last throughrepparttar 122516 next day. And to get up and start my day by readingrepparttar 122517 depressing news inrepparttar 122518 newspaper for about a half hour to an hour.

I did this EVERY day.

And then I'd complain that I didn't have enough time to 'do things'...

...Like work my new MLM business.

...Like prospect for prospects.

...Like contactrepparttar 122519 ones that wanted me to contact them.

...Like readrepparttar 122520 stuff to help me be strong in my business dealings.

...Like workrepparttar 122521 phone and call back people who had left messages for me to call THEM.

When I realized that there was only going to be one way that I would 'find' more time in my days...things changed.

My MLM business changed.

How I spent my days changed.

The results I had in life changed.

Instead of sleeping 8 to 9 hours every day...I decided that I only needed 6 hours of sleep to get through each day.
