Most network marketers want their MLM prospects instant attention, leaning forward and listening to every word they say – rejection free.
And everybody likes to hear a good story. So if we use stories instead of telling boring facts we will immediately make a breakthrough in our business, yes?
I have good story you can use and it’s written by my friend and one of my mentors Tom “Big Al” Schreiter.
The Eagle and The Oyster
Once there were two eggs discussing what they
wanted to be when they hatch. The first egg said, “I want
to be an oyster when I hatch. An oyster just sits in the water.
It has no decisions to make. The currents of the ocean
move it about, so it doesn’t have to plan. The ocean water
that passes by is its food. Whatever the ocean provides is
what the oyster may receive, no more, no less. That’s the
life for me. It may be limited, but there are no decisions,
no responsibilities, just a plain existence controlled by the
The second egg said, “That’s not the life for me. I
wish to be an eagle. An eagle is free to go where he wants
and do as he pleases. Sure he is responsible for hunting his
own food and making survival decisions, but he is free to
fly as high as the mountains. The eagle is in control, not
controlled by others. I wish no limits placed on me. I do
not wish to be a slave of the ocean. For this I am willing
to pay the effort required to live the life of an eagle.”
There are two types of people in the world those who let the life go pass and remain slaves of the ocean forever and those who stop and realise that life has so much much more to give and create the life they really want and deserve to live now.
