A Good Leader Undergoes Personal Transformation

Becoming a leader in via the network marketing platform is an awesome experience because it’s all about PERSONAL TRANSFORMATION. It’s not about how big a team we can have - how many people we can personally recruit - nor is it about being the greatest salesperson out in the market. It's so much more than that! It’s a journey of personal transformation - going from caterpillar to butterfly. 

 

Let me expand on the caterpillar-to-butterfly illustration. You see, if a caterpillar thinks it could never fly and thinks that going into a cocoon (aka chrysalis)  to transform would be waaaay too lonely and hard, then he will never in a million years become a butterfly and soar the skies. However, if this caterpillar just follows the natural course of his life, creates a cocoon and allows the transformation to take place, it will emerge as a beautiful butterfly, as long as nobody decides to cut open the cocoon to help it out, in which case it will never, ever fly even though it has wings. The struggle to get out of the cocoon is what gives its wings the strength! In the same way, at some point in our life, we need to surrender to the “cocoon” into which God wants us to be so that He can transform us and give us wings to soar. If we allow the process to happen, God will make us stronger people as He develops us in every area of our life. 

 

A true inspirational leader is one who has taken the time to allow the complete transformation to take place. I know in my heart, because God has revealed this to me, that “He who began a good work in me will be faithful to complete it” (Phil 1:6). During the time of transformation, we simply need to allow Him to transform our mindset so our lives can then be completely transformed and we can soar the skies, inspiring other “caterpillars” that don’t think this could ever be possible, as well as those who are getting ready to go into their chrysalis and those already in it. It’s not about the team, per se, but rather about each person on the team being TRANSFORMED into an inspirational person that people no matter what team they have decided to join. You see, God will give us people to personally mentor along the way, but we don’t get to decide who these people are going to be. God is in charge of who will join us personally, and who won’t. We just have to focus on our personal transformation. Period. Nothing more, nothing less. As God transforms our mindset, we start emerging into amazing inspirational leaders that this world needs, and which God can use in the most powerful ways. He truly can do “abundantly more than we could ever ask or imagine”, as it says in Eph 3:30-21. 

 

Focus on your PERSONAL TRANSFORMATION - going from a caterpillar to a butterfly. Allow God to do all the transforming work in you and you will emerge as the most beautiful butterfly you can imagine. Only then will you be the best leader you could possibly be in this profession; only then can God use you in ways you can’t possibly even begin to imagine!
