I got started in this business in 1970 and of course there is a learning curve in everything. I went to meetings twice a week without fail because I wanted to learn what the successful people did and what they were teaching. I heard many people tell their story and that was always inspiring. I also heard presentations about the business side of Shaklee and I decided I wanted to build a large business.
When I was coaching in high school as well as when I was a graduate assistant on the football staff at the University of North Dakota, there were various rules and principles for building a winning team. We worked daily on following these principles because they had been proven over time to be vital for success.
The following is what dictionary.com says about principles:
An accepted rule of action or conduct…..A distinctive opinion….
A guiding sense of the requirements of right conduct.
There is a word, that when we understand what it’s about, can and will make a huge difference in a persons future. That word is discipline. I’m sure you know someone who you might describe as being “a very disciplined person.” You probably say that because a person seems to make progress in whatever he or she might be doing (regardless of surroundings) or what people may say about them.
Congratulations on your decision to build a Shaklee business. You’ve made a great choice and your timing couldn’t be better!
