One day a centipede wanting to cross a stream asked a frog for help because he could not swim. The frog refused because the poisonous centipede may bite and kill him.
The centipede replied, “I am not that stupid. If I bite you and you die, I will also drown because I cannot swim." The frog thought about it and finally agreed to help.
So the centipede climbed on the frog''s back and half way cross the stream, the frog felt a bite on his neck. The centipede bit him. As the frog was dying and the centipede drowning, the frog asked the centipede why.
The centipede replied, “It is my natural instinct.”
MLM is a people business. You are going to come across all kinds and lucky for us in good legitimate established companies, more of the good then the bad because good companies must have certain good spirit and culture in order to be big and successful. Thugs and bad people do not stay very long in good companies and good people brings in good people.
However you are still going to come across people who are negative, unreliable where money is concerned, bad tempered, unable to have good relationship with others, no sense of time, no commonsense, difficult to teach, snobbish, having drugs problem, gambling problems, family problems, lazy, with inferiority complex, with superiority complex and the list can go on.
As a leader, I know many of you are very anxious that people under you become who you want them to become overnight. You can see their flaws and want to solve their weaknesses which seems so easy to you. In the process, you may sometimes come down too hard on them or may even loose your temper. Sometimes you may overstep the boundary or may even go into areas that you should not touch.
I want you to relax, be concerned, smile, have love in your heart when you talk to them and know that your are not Our Lord All Jesus Christ. To some, “It is their natural instinct.” so try but don't try too hard.
