Today, I want to discuss a book I recently started re-reading. And that is ‘Magnetic Sponsoring’ by  Mike Dillard.

In Chapter 3 of the book, Mike talks about the secret to becoming a true professional. What he says in this chapter is really awesome. He basically says that a lot of people make decisions based on their emotions. They build their business 100% on emotions. This causes emotional roller coasters. So if someone joins their business, they go out to town and party and become emotionally high and then when someone quits the business, they’re at an all-time low, ready to quit the business. Anytime they get a ‘no’, they go from super-high to super-low. Their success makes them super-excited and their failure makes them super-frustrated.

That is NOT how you become a true professional.

Basically what Mike is saying in the book is take all the emotions out of your business because it will lead to your failure and will cause you to quit eventually. It doesn’t matter what people do. You can’t control what they do. You can only control how you react to what they do.

True professionals feel no differently about success and failure. They are just part of everyday business and treated as such because they live in a state of mind of abundance.  If someone joins their business, it’s just another day in the business. If someone quits their business, it’s just another day in the business. If someone joins and talks big but never does anything, it’s just another day in the business. They’ve got the ‘Superman next’ mentality….And what I mean by that is if they have someone who comes into their business and is throwing people into the business left and right, the chances of them being in the business for the long haul are slim or next to none.

I want to encourage you to pick up a copy of Magnetic Sponsoring. It has really changed the way that I do business. Just the insights I got out of Chapter 3 alone is worth the price of the entire book. You will actually learn something and be able to implement the strategies you learn out of this book.
