This is the catchphrase of many online adverts these days, usually referring to online money making opportunities. What makes this phrase so attractive is that most people have a deep desire to be successfully lazy. Yes, the truth is most people would like to receive money from doing nothing. Their dreams are to win the lottery, inherit millions from some uncle they never knew or collect millions from joining a money making opportunity.
The business I promote is Mirror Trading International and if you are a big investor, you have worked hard and now you would like your money to work for you. The MTI system makes sure that your money works really hard.
What if you aren’t a big investor and your desire is to be successful? Some of us are starting out and some of us have to start again.
The question is often are we prepared to do something so that we can become successful or are we actually hoping we will end up being successfully lazy? Hoping we will become successful will actually cause us to become lazy. The truth is that we will not have the money to be successfully lazy, and the laziness will continue and the money will remain out of reach forever.
It is the universal principle of sowing and reaping. If we don’t work we cannot get the fruit from our labour. If we have the opportunity to work, we should work diligently and if we work a little, we will earn a little. We should all try to work smart, but to reach any degree of success we will need to work.
I have heard it said that if you are not selling you are not growing. I have also heard many people say ‘I am not good at selling’ and ‘I don’t like recruiting my friends’. Do you think anyone really likes selling? No, I can tell you I don’t and most people I know don’t like it, but at some time in their lives, successful people decided that they needed to do some selling to get the results they desired.
Have you ever wondered why most of us dislike selling? It is the fear of rejection, we don’t like hearing the word ‘no’. In our business we will get objections and this cannot be avoided, it is part of the business. I hear a lot of people asking for things to be easier, but think of it, if it was easy, there would be very little opportunity for those who actually want to be truly successful. A true business that offers a great opportunity will have just as much opportunity in 15 to 20 years time as it does today. That is the Mirror Trading Opportunity, we have an opportunity right now, and that opportunity will be the same in 20 years when our children want an opportunity. All we need to do is decide when we would like to take up the challenge.
The bottom line is if we would like to get ahead and earn enough to become financially free and be wealthy, we are going to need to do some selling and recruiting. It’s easier than you think. You don’t have to be a salesman or woman, all you need to do is share your opportunity with people you meet. After all, everyone would like to earn at least a little bit of extra money, and I have yet to meet someone who says, “No, it’s okay, I have enough money”!
