If I Can Do It, So Can You
I’ve been debating whether or not to post this but, my wife said to me when I asked her if I should, “absolutely!! Your story could inspire others and if one person sees it and they gain a greater belief in themselves then it’ll be worth all of the hard work you put in to achieve this goal and it’ll be more impactful than the dollars we’ve made.”
The pic above is the award I received from Pruvit for earning over 7 figures. This award I envisioned receiving when I first started in (Pruvit) Network Marketing just over 5 years ago. I didn’t know how I’d do it but, I was determined that one day I would walk across a stage accepting the award. I remember daydreaming, watching myself accepting the award and after accepting it looking to my wife and smiling (saying we did it).
So, what’s the backstory and why would it inspire anyone?
Let me start off by saying I don’t believe to be much different than anyone else. I’m just like most of you; perfectly imperfect. I’m telling my story not for a pat on the back but, rather to show that if I can do it ANYONE can.
Some of the challenges I faced growing up and excuses I could have used to not achieve what I achieved.
Born into an abusive home
Grew up poor
Depression and mental illness runs in the family
Lived in foster homes and separated from siblings
Broke the law and was facing 4 years in prison (just after high school)
Went to war
Have a TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury)
PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)
Declared Non-Employable Living on Social Security Disability (due to back injuries, TBI, PTSD, and Cognition impairment)
No network of people
No knowledge of how to build a network marking business
No money to even buy the product
I did not want my past, my family, or environment to determine my success. I wanted more for me and my family, so I went to work.
When I started, I would wake up at 6 am and studied and learned things that would help me move my business forward until 12pm. From 1pm till 12am I would put into action what I learned earlier that day. I did this for 2 years before I started making a full-time income.
My wife was and is my biggest supporter and my largest motivation. I fought for a better future like I was in a fight for my life. I did this for my kids, my wife, and myself.
If a guy like me can achieve success in Pruvit or Network Marketing, so can the person reading this. You don’t need experience. You don’t need a network of people. You don’t need anything but a burning desire to win. If you have that desire, you will be open to learning how to make success happen and become coachable.
So, allow yourself to dream and envision what it’s going to look like when you achieve your goals. Most importantly, image the lives you’ll change in the journey of achieve your goals.
Today, my vision and goals have changed. My goal is to find others that have big goals and dreams and help them achieve them. I know that together we will.
I can’t wait till I can help someone else do the same or better.
