Nine Things More Important Than Capital for Achieving Network Marketing Success by Jim Rohn

There is a book called “The Ultimate Guide to Network Marketing: 37 Top Network Marketing Income-Earners Share Their Most Preciously-Guarded Secrets to Building Extreme Wealth” and Chapter 3 has Jim Rohn discussing “Nine Things More Important than Capital for Achieving Network Marketing Success. There are many other great chapters in this book, but I personally love this chapter the best.

The nine things discussed are, Time, Desperation, Determination, Courage, Ambition, Faith, Ingenuity, Heart and Soul, and lastly Personality. I wonder why Jim decided to name 9 things instead of ten, but we will go with what we got.

Lets first discuss Time. Time can be spent in three different ways. You can spend it, waste it, or invest it. Jim says time is more valuable than capital. The time you set aside should not to be wasted, nor given away. How valuable is time? Time wasted can be devastation, but time properly invested is worth a fortune and can perform miracles, so you invest your time.

Desperation. Some might say being desperate is not good. I tend to disagree. Sometimes we get put into situations to test us, and to humble us. But if you stay in that desperate state that’s where the problem can lie. I can recall a time back in college when I desperately needed to pay my rent, and I didn’t have the money. I tried friends and family and no one was able to help me, so I got a job selling Kirby Vacuum cleaners door to door. I absolutely hated that job, but I was desperate. I did what I had to do at the time, instead of sitting on my b.u.t.t. feeling sorry for myself. Now I have ensured that my child will never have to sell anything door to door when she gets to college. Desperation has power and can motivate even the laziest persons of them all.

Determination. There is a fine line between determination and desperation. The difference is seen when I knew I needed a job in college to pay my rent, my attitude was I must find a job, but the determination part was when I would keep looking and applying for jobs until I found one. Never stopping, never ceasing, having a strong will to accomplish your goal.

Courage. Jim says “Courage…in spite of, not because of, but in spite of…” When I was working that job knowing full good and well that I could do better, hearing folks laugh at me, putting up with a lot of bull. Courage, do do what you have to do and not hold your head in shame about it.

Ambition. “Wow! If I can sell 3, I can sell 33. If I can sell 33, I can sell 103.” Jim describes. Now one can see their dreams of the future.

Faith is very important. How can you convince or share a product or service with anyone if you personally do not have faith in, or believe in it? You can’t. You can say all the right things, but the law of energy will show up, and people will feel that negative energy inside you and will run. What if you had a million dollars and no faith? You’d be poor. You wouldn’t be rich.

Ingenuity. Jim describes: “Putting your brains to work. Probably up until now, you’ve put about 1/10 of your brainpower to work. What if you employed the other 9/10? You can’t believe what can happen. Humans can come up with the most intriguing things to do. Ingenuity. What’s ingenuity worth? A fortune. It is more valuable than money. All you need is a and plenty of ingenuity. Figuring out a way to make it work, make it work, make it work.”

Heart and Soul. I’m sure we have all heard before that people do not join businesses. When you are out recruiting, you are not recruiting people per say to join your business. No, people join YOU! People join people, not business. And if your heart and soul is not right, people are not going to trust you, and ultimately not want to join your business. Jim says “What is a substitute for heart and soul? It’s not money. Money can’t buy heart and soul. Heart and soul is more valuable than a million dollars. A million dollars without heart and soul, you have no life. You are ineffective. But, heart and soul is like the unseen magic that moves people, moves people to buy, moves people to make decisions, moves people to act, moves people to respond.”

Personality. Jim said it best when he said “You’ve just got to spruce up and sharpen up your own personality. You’ve got plenty of personality. Just get it developed to where it is effective every day, and effective no matter who you talk to – whether it is a child or whether it is a business person. A unique personality that is at home anywhere. Move with ease whether it is with the rich or whether it is with the poor. And it makes no difference to you who is rich or who is poor. A chance to have a unique relationship with whomever. The kind of personality that’s comfortable. The kind of personality that’s not bent out of shape.
