The Power of Numbers

Hello Friends and Fellow Networkers,

I really appreciate your emails in regards to covering certain topics....This week, I will be sharing my view in regards to the Power of Numbers. This is such a simple concept, and when it is fully understood and implemented, it takes all of the up and down emotion out of the game!

The Power of Numbers is the basic philosophy of many of the most successful businesses. The Walmart Empire was built on the power of numbers, a profitable business model was developed and then that model was duplicated over and over again. More stores meant more sales, more sales meant more profit. McDonalds took this concept to franchising. A McDonald's franchise owner could duplicate themselves by simply owning more franchises.

In Network Marketing, your job is to develop business partners who will have thriving businesses. The more successful business partners you have, the more sales and success your business will have.

Athletes use the power of numbers. The star on the team is not the one with the most talent, it is the one who takes the most shots. Top athletes know that winning is a numbers game - the more shots you take, the more opportunities you have to score.

It is very important to keep in mind that the person who takes the most shots is almost always the person who misses the most. Babe Ruth set the single-season home run record with 60 home runs. That same year he led the league in strikeouts with 189.

I would rather see an average networker who is willing to "play the numbers" than a superstar who never takes any shots. The networker who plays the numbers will ALWAYS have more opportunities to make sales and recruit new business partners.

The key to the power of numbers is finding a basic pattern or business model that is simple, proven and duplicatable. All you have to do is learn the business model and then repeat it on a mass scale to achieve predictable results.

Walt Disney was told "No" by virtually every person he talked to. They said his idea of a cartoon about a mouse was absolutely ridiculous. He was turned down by over 300 bankers before he found someone who would fund his vision. Walt Disney believed in his vision strong enough to continue playing the numbers.

The Bible says, "Ask and it shall be given to you." "Seek and ye shall find" and "Knock and it shall be opened to you." This is such a powerful principle. Think about it, if you consistently ASK enough people, and you are willing to KNOCK on enough doors, then eventually doors will OPEN, you will FIND the right opportunities, and you will be GIVEN the results you desire.

Winning is all in the numbers; Practicing the numbers, improving the numbers and consistently playing the numbers.

Learn and practice the basics, and do it over and over again.
Know your averages.
Evaluate your performance and improve your averages.
BE CONSISTENT!!
