Network Marketing Business - Great Success System For Entrepreneurs

Statistically speaking, there are about half a million new businesses started each month in the United States alone. Check out the details on these statics by Business Insider here. This number, of course, includes startups across all industries.

But, Statistics Are Not Always Exciting

However, isn’t it another interesting fact that 7 out of 10 businesses shut down in their first new years of operation?

Successful People Are Simply Those With Successful Habits-Brian Tracy - Post Image

Since starting my journey of entrepreneurship, I have studied success stories of many extraordinary entrepreneurs (Rich Devos, Sam Walton, Steve Jobs etc.), successful sports personalities (John Wooden,  Tom Landry etc.) and some extremely successful bloggers (Darren Rowse, Michael Hyatt, Neil Patel etc.) and learned tremendous motivation.

To achieve this goal, Ryan had to compete and excel over more than 30,000 people who competed in this International competition.  What an amazing accomplishment!  During our conversation, Ryan shared with me that it was never his goal to become the World Champion for Public Speaking.  Especially I remember he saying , “..but my goals was always to TRAIN like one”.

I came across a very interesting article today on DumbLittleMan.com that talks about the importance of following a proven system of success and why such systems should be followed to the core by those who seek success.

Your Own Resolution To Succeed Is More Important Than The System Of Success You Follow

The author cites very good reasons to when he suggests why one shouldn't get "creative" to invent a new system.   It is a very good article with great examples.

However, I have some reservations against the theory of just following the system without being fully convinced about it and here are my examples and reasoning:

It's amazing how many people do not read one book in their lifetime after getting out of school (or college). Well, I was one of those as well for several years. Never read a book, never attended a seminar or a workship for a long time!

Time Management - How We Manage Our Time Impacts What We Get From Life

Until one day, a family friend handed over "The Seven Habits Of Highly Effective People" by Dr. Stephen Covey and, that one book, changed the direction I was headed towards in my life. That was the first book I picked up, and since then, I never stopped reading. Continue Reading…
