Guy: I think they’re just lazy!
Gal: No! They can do it. They just don’t WANT to.
They weren’t talking about MLMers,
but they might as well have been. Upline are often calling downline
lazy because “they don’t do anything.”
But consider this.
What if Lulu, once she realizes how hard it
is to ‘get her three,‘ decides that she just doesn’t
WANT to do sales? Or sharing? Period.
Does not wanting to do something make you lazy?
I bought a big Facebook ad program a few months ago.
After I realized how much work it was to make Facebook
pay off for me, I dropped it. Does that make me lazy? Or, a quitter?
Many folks are oversold on how easy and quick MLM success is.
When they discover 1) it is not quick or easy and
2) they don’t enjoy either selling or sharing, some don’t want to do it.
What’s wrong with that? It’s a free country, yes? How many things
have you tried that you’ve quit, after realizing what was really
If there is any blame here, it’s the overselling of MLM riches.
That and denying we are in sales. (No, we don’t sell; We share. Right.)
It’s human to blame others for our own mistakes. But, would
a more upfront approach reduce the number of “do nothings”?
In any case, shall we stop calling them names?
