The Future Letter

Imagine waking up on January 1, 2016 and opening a letter… which describes lots of fun and fabulous things you experienced in 2015.

This is one of my favorite dream-building exercises!

Here’s how it works: Grab a sheet of paper and pen. Date the letter January 1, 2016, and address it to whomever you wish: G-d, Loving Universe, yourself, Your Higher Self– whomever you please.

Pretend it is January 1, 2016. You are reflecting back on the year 2015 and giving thanks for many fun things you did or accomplished.

Let your imagination run wild. Joyfully describe your cooking vacation in Italy, running your first marathon, getting your book published, promoting in your company, paying off credit cards, donating time or money to your favorite charity, getting a weekly massage, paying for your niece’s private school tuition, volunteering at your grandchildren’s school, delivering speeches, attending spiritual retreats. Put dates on them if you want, and feel free not to. Some descriptions require high flexibility in order to manifest in the most efficient and powerful way possible.

Be as general or specific as you please. The more specific you get, the more emotional and powerful that scene becomes, aiding your brain in manifesting it.

And, be sure to include at least one pie-in-the-sky “Big Dream”… one that gets you excited but you’re not sure how to accomplish it.

Traditionally I finish my letter with a phrase, “I give thanks for these or something better, for the good of all and harm to none.” After all, if you described two easily-funded vacations, would it be OK with you to receive a 3rd?

Sign it, and reread it. Feel the fun and celebration coming from your words!

Now seal it in an envelope…to be opened January 1, 2016.

Celebrate Green Lights

Imagine you’re sitting in your car at a red traffic light and the light turns green.

????????????????????????????????????????????

Do you fold your arms across your chest, start pouting and refuse to press the gas pedal, because even if you drive through this green light you’re not at your destination??? No way!!

I betcha you would be thinking some version of, Oh good, I’m on my way! That’s one step closer to getting to my destination!

As each calendar year draws to a close, the media tend to publish lists of “the best of the year, or rankings of people and events.

It’s natural to also take proverbial stock of one’s own life accomplishments of the year… and that can create problems if we do it destructively.

In network marketing, there is much emphasis about the number of customers & distributors on a person’s team, their promotion level in the company, earnings comparisons, etc.

It’s great to celebrate those types of accomplishments. If you have advanced in any of those categories, I certainly congratulate you!

However, many of those markers of external success are out of the control of the individual distributor.

Enrolling a customer or distributor requires the other person to take action. As do fulfilling the customer and distributor enrollment and purchase requirements to advance in rank.

And “top 50 income earners” types of lists then compare which distributors received the most results of decisions made out of their control.

Even worse: if you aren’t on such lists, and you compare yourself to people who are.

Take a guess how many times, and how often, I compared my progress to my sponsor’s. (Hint: when I feel the most discouraged about my business progress, I nearly always was comparing myself to my sponsor, who has re-qualified and served on the founder’s advisory board every period since it was created!)

So, what’s a more supportive and hope-creating way to look at “slow growth”?

START WITH IDENTIFYING YOUR OWN GREEN LIGHTS
When you’re driving on a main road in any large town in the USA, you will encounter stoplights. By law you are required to stop at a red light and are free to move forward when the light turns green. So you could say that the green light is a signal that you are moving forward. You haven’t necessarily arrived at your destination or goal, but at least you’re on your way.

Some “Green Lights” in a Network Marketing business:

“I loved the sample you sent!”

“I’m interested in learning more!”

“How did you do that?”

Scheduling a presentation

Your potential client tries your product

A subscription customer automatically purchases this month’s auto-order

You brought a guest to a business presentation conference call, an in-person business presentation, or seminar

If you are thinking, “Well, I scheduled a presentation, but that’s not very exciting”, or some other discouraging thought, consider this: Imagine one of the distributors in your organization called to tell you they scheduled a presentation… or their potential client tried the product. Would you be proud of them?? So apply the same yardstick to your own actions.

I challenge you to write a list (handwritten or typed) of some of your Green Lights! Put it in your business mementos box or even on your desk, so you can remind yourself that you are making progress.

During this holiday season, let the green stoplights you see while driving be a reminder of this lesson.
