As I witnessed the Eagle Scout ceremony for one of the scouts that we had recruited 10-12 years ago into pack 167, I couldn't help but realize how similar the path to become an Eagle Scout
was to the path we must pursue on our journey towards the top rank in Young Living, which is called "Royal Crown Diamond". The Scouting program has been around for over 100 years so it is much better
known and upheld currently by society because so many leaders have come out of this training, whereas the network marketing leadership training only has a little over 50 years of existence.
In addition to that, many "bad companies" have arisen trying to market products of very low quality via this model of business, which has given this industry a very bad name, thereby creating a desire to shun all those that see the benefits of the network
marketing style of doing business.
It is time to rise up and help others see the amazing benefits of
the network marketing profession. It's time to let go of the fear of rejection, educate ourselves on the benefits of this style of business, and share with others about it, inviting them to do the same.
It's time to become EXEMPLARY CONFIDENT LEADERS in the network marketing industry, taking on the leadership qualities of a Scout that has his eyes set on becoming an Eagle Scout, a position that is very
honorable in the eyes of society, and yet this Scout needs to be accept this position/rank with humility as he takes it on since it's all about service and leading others by example.
Throughout the next few weeks, I will be blogging daily about the 12 character traits of a Boy Scout, and will talk about why it's important for exemplary
network marketing leaders to exhibit these same traits. I will also higlight sections in the Scout Oath and Scout Law so you can see why we, as leaders, should also uphold this same oath and law in our daily lives. Stay tuned!
