must-read post
contains great tip

 Posted 13 days ago More by kevin d.

Good day to everyone, wherever you are in the world. One of the things I love most about SFI is that it is truly a global program. I love seeing where affiliates are from in the world. I know where most of the countries are and can place most on a map but occasionally I find a country i don’t where it is or even one I have never heard of before. What do I do? Go to “Google” of course and satisfy my curiosity. But I digress. I know that many affiliates are kind of down today because today is the start of a new month and everything has been reset. The scoreboard shows all zeros our rank badge shows pending requalification. One thing we have to remember is that we are all in the same boat. I take the beginning of the month to reflect on the previous month and think about what I did. Did I work hard enough? Did I do all I could have? Did I take time to learn something new? One thing we shouldn’t do is beat ourselves up if we feel we didn’t do enough, that doesn’t solve anything. I like to look at the beginning of the month as many of us look at a brand new note pad. Untouched, waiting there for us to work on. No scribbled notes, no creases and no tears. Pretty soon that notebook will be full of ideas and scribbled notes that we hope we can read later on. Sit back and jot down things that you did last month. Did you advertise on Traffic exchanges? Maybe this month switch it up and try some Safelists. Seek out new avenues to promote your links at. Write down your goals, dont’t set them so high that they are unachievable. But on the flip side do not make them so reachable that halfway through the month you have hit your target and sit back for the rest of the month. Sometimes it is also a good time to maybe go back and look at the basics of SFI again and refresh our memories. Go back to the launchpad and read through it again. Maybe something new will stick with you. https://www.sfimg.com/LaunchPad/ Likewise check out the “Getting Started” pages again. We all forget stuff. Even the most successful marketers have to keep reading to keep on top of their game. https://www.sfimg.com/Training/GeneralTraining Refreshing your memory on the “Rules Of Success” wouldn’t hurt either. https://www.sfimg.com/ROS/Index And of course there is the “Diamond Plan”. https://www.sfimg.com/the_plan Have you taken the time to read any of the “Expert Reports” that we have there for our use and education? https://www.sfimg.com/Training/ExpertReports There are so many reports you will be able to find one that you will earn from. There is also the “Internet Income” course there for our use. https://www.sfimg.com/Training/InternetIncome SFI is without the best affiliate program out there for providing so much FREE guidance and training. Of course it is up to each one of us to take advantage of these resources, and put what we learn into practice. The other valuable resource we have is the forum and if your reading this you know where it is located. We have many very active affiliates sharing their knowledge with each other. Offering tips and advice and encouragement to us all. You will see that we have “Forum Gurus” they have earned that title by being active and answering your questions. The other great thing about the forum is the chance to ask “SFI President, Gery Carson” questions and get answers from the man himself. Almost unheard of in affiliate programs that the top guy being so active and available to us all. So what I am getting at is that today is not about what we have lost from last month (because we haven’t lost anything), it is what we can do this month to be bigger and better. We should evaluate, adapt and overcome any obstacles we find in our way. I know this is a bit long but I hope you find some value in it. Peace out. Kevin

Respected Kevin In sum and substance it boils down to "Better late than never"! I see lot of value in your Thread! Yes. If we could not do it last month, we can do it this month! Where there is a will, there is a way!

Hi Kevin, I agree that we should take the opportunity at the beginning of a new month to reflect on what we did last month and how we can improve on it. And, yes, we should go back from time to time and reread what we have already read because we might pick up on some new information or relearn something. SFI does give us a lot of free training that we should avail ourselves of. At least we don't have to pay to learn how to do this business! I really like that Gery is so available to us, most companies CEOs don't do that. And don't forget that we also have 24/7 support to help us, too. I know I need to try to do something new to get active teammates and sales, so that is what I am going to focus on this month. Good luck to you and to all my fellow brothers and sisters in SFI.

Being able to communicate with my friends in Australia...or Japan...or South Africa... or Canada...or Denmark...UK...or USA ...or whatever state in the world... well, it's "my treasure box"...that makes me RICH!

I am originally from England. I was working in the Channel Islands as a chef in the early 90's. Many of my co workers and friends were from Yugoslavia. Along with them I watched what happened as each country became independent. I wont get into that here but it was hard seeing my friends breaking down with sadness. I agree with you that it is amazing to be able to have instant communication with friends from every part of the planet. Much success to you. Peace out. Kevin

Kevin, my Awesome team leader- Beautiful and well written thread, very inspirational too. I agree with it 100% and you definitely started the month with the right foot and mindset, as we all should. There is no point to looking back, because that's already past. Instead we should keep moving forward, setting our goals at the begging of the month and try to do better than the last month and working harder/smarter in reaching each one of those goals. Thanks for sharing this beautiful post my friend, and let's make the November better than October. Very proud of you, keep up the amazing work my friend. Wish everyone all the best and much more success in your businesses. Your Sponsor Zhumagul A.
