How to Lose

The only way to lose is to give up.

We can tell what kind of people we are by
what we do on the second and third attempts.

Never give up on anything worthwhile.

2009 is certainly a year of economic chaos.

Yet, it is also a time of incredible opportunities.

Always remember -

Wealth is never destroyed.

It just gets moved around.

Success comes to those who can weather the storm."

Setbacks

Setbacks happen.

That's just life...

A big secret to success is to transform
your setbacks into a step forward.

Don't spend much time asking, "Why?"

Instead, ask, "What shall I do now?"

This will enable you to move forward.

Hamburgers and MLM

"Our product sells itself..."

"Everybody needs our product..."

"Our product is the greatest in the world..."

There are a lot of great products out there.

But there's a lot more to it than that.

It takes MORE than a great product
to have a great business...

You have to have a MARKETING SYSTEM for one thing.

I make a great hamburger...

McDonalds makes a crummy hamburger...

So who's the Hamburger Millionaire?

McDonalds has a SYSTEM for selling hamburgers.

I just make good hamburgers...

I don't make good money at making good hamburgers.

Beginning to see why maybe you aren't making
any money with your great product?

Just something to think about.
