The law of sewing and reaping is told by Jim Rohn.
Jim was my most influential mentor.
Although he departed this earth December 5, 2009, I still consider him my mentor. I listen to his old audio cassettes, and CD’s and read his quotes online and use them daily.
Jim Rohn rose from rags to riches.
Jim was an American entrepreneur, author and motivational speaker. His rags to riches story played a large part in his work, which influenced others in the personal development industry. He “became rich,” he says in network marketing.
When I first got serious about network marketing, many of the successful leaders in the company I was in quoted Jim Rohn. I wanted to duplicate their success so I did as they did.
One of his stories that helped me to understand and tolerate the reason for attrition…(drop outs) in this business was his story about the birds. It comes from the Bible but Jim retold it as it applied to Networking. It works in Affiliate marketing too.
Here, he tells the story about the law of Sewing and Reaping.
It is about a sewer sewing seed. We do that in networking. We tell our story about our business and that is sewing seed. We tell about our product or service and that is sewing seed . Sometimes we tell it online by sending a link to a video or our web site.
He said, “The sewer was ambitious.” He believed in his product and his business and wanted to share the story with as many as he could. He had excellent seed meant that his business was a legitimate opportunity for others to succeed.
First as he sewed the seed, part of the
seed fell by the wayside and birds get some.
This is where attrition starts. We tell our story and some people just don’t see the opportunity. They can’t see themselves doing it. Many just don’t understand the potential of the business model.
In Jim’s day and the old days of networking, we invited people to meetings. Many did not show up.
We gave cassettes, CD’s or web sites to people to hear the story. Some do not listen or watch.
Jim say’s, “the birds got em’. That is just the way it is.”
Don’t chase the birds that distracted them because you leave the field. That takes you away from your prospecting. And don’t chase the people that didn’t show up or didn’t listen to your information. Plant more seed.
The sewer kept on sewing.
And that is what you need to do, continue to present your business to others. Be persistent, be consistent. That is what makes online marketing so powerful. There are Billions of people out there and some are waiting for your seed to fall in front of them.
Next, the seed fell on rocky ground where the soil is shallow.
Yet some still starts to grow but withers and dies because the soil is not deep enough to support the roots.
Something will always kill some of your seedlings, but only some because some will survive if you plant enough seed.
Some don’t stay and some do, so you need to feed and nurture the ones that are beginning to sprout.
The sewer kept on sewing by disciplining his disappointment. This is where many people in our business get discouraged and drop away, just like the seeds that die. They can’t handle the rejection or some just do not have the burning desire to continue in spite of the reward.
This business is not a sprint, it is a marathon and he/she that makes it to the finish line ribbon at the end will reap the harvest.
The seed fell on thorny ground. The thorns choke the seedling.
The thorns are little distractions that come up with your prospects and new members. There are always “things’ coming up that divert people from their goal.
The sewer keeps on sewing and telling the story. He presents the business, sends more emails, places a few ads, publishes more blogs and has more people listening to his story that the birds can get.
Finally the seed falls on good ground…it always will. That is why persistence is one of the keys to success in our business. You cannot fail if you do not quit.
Some good ground produced 30%, some 60% and some 100%.
That is just the way it is.
This means some of your associates will plant seed and the birds will get some but if they continue to do as you do, (this is duplication) their seed will produce other associates. As their business grows so does yours. This is the duplication that brings success.
That is not the end of the story but it is the end of this part. Here is a treat for you, a video of Jim telling the story.
