By now, some of you know that I like to illustrate my points by telling a story.
Some of you are paying my Blog your first visit, in any case, give YOURSELF a few minutes of your time to read a simple but great and very true story.
Before I tell you the story
You’ve probably heard someone say this before… “If anyone told me that I would be blogging professionally as a network marketer , I would have laughed OUT LOUD and said, No way”
Well…that’s WAS me saying the exact same thing, and you know what, I was so wrong.
So Happy I realized that I was wrong
Here I am, blogging, building my business, taking my finacial freedom seriously. It has become one of my passions, it has made me grow beyond my own expecations :-).
My topic of the day is not just a topic I picked. Since I became a Network Marketer, I’ve meet a lot of dissappointed people who expected to become part of a team, expected to have a good leader to guide them how to grow their business. But where left without any support, guidance or help.
What I blog about?
Well why don’t you find out
Back to today’s headline. Are you a Team member
or just a member?
The knowledge and awarness of Human Behavior Psychology is crucial to any success.. especially when it comes to leadership and being a team member …….
Speaking of Human behavior, leadership and teams…. as the headline said, this post is about the”TEAM MEMBER” another of my passions!!
Have you hears the story about the Lion and the Mouse?
The Lion and the Mouse
A Lion lay asleep in the forest, his great head resting on his paws.
A timid little Mouse came upon him unexpectedly, and in her
fright and haste to get away, ran across the Lion’s nose. Roused
from his nap, the Lion laid his huge paw angrily on the tiny
creature to kill her.
“Spare me!” begged the poor Mouse. “Please let me go and some
day I will surely repay you.”
The Lion was much amused to think that a Mouse could ever
help him. But he was generous and finally let the Mouse go.
Some days later, while stalking his prey in the forest, the Lion was
caught in the toils of a hunter’s net. Unable to free himself, he
filled the forest with his angry roaring. The Mouse knew the voice
and quickly found the Lion struggling in the net. Running to one
of the great ropes that bound him, she gnawed it until it parted,
and soon the Lion was free.
“You laughed when I said I would repay you,” said the Mouse.
“Now you see that even a Mouse can help a Lion.”
“The glad hand is alright in sunshine, but it’s the
helping hand on a dark day that folks remember
to the end of time.”
“Be nice to people on your way up because you’ll
meet ‘em on your way down.”
“Coming together is a beginning.
Keeping together is progress.
Working together is success.”
“One of the most important things about being a
good manager is … to know what’s at the heart of
the business… The people.”
Lessons in life & Business
Think of a lion, and you will invariably equate it to power
and might. In the context of a country, the lion is the King
or head of state, and the mouse is a little unknown citizen.
Applying it to a corporate setup, the lion is the Boss, and
the mouse is just a salaried employee. It is easy for the lion
to trample on the mouse and ignore the contributions that
the mouse may make. However, this does not do the lion
any good. A good King is therefore one who values the work
of each countryman as an essential part of nation building.
It is like a gigantic jigsaw puzzle of a million pieces; one
missing piece and the jigsaw will not be complete. A good
Boss should treasure the services and opinions of each
employee, right down to the cleaning lady. I mentioned
“opinions” because it is common for a man at the helm to
listen to advice from his trusted lieutenants, but not from
the little minions. This approach can be costly. Now and
then, you would have read stories of how staff suggestions
save the companies millions of dollars, or avert certain plights.
Do not underestimate a little mouse. Afterall, many unhappy
mice may result in rebellions, revolts, or boycotts, that will
cripple even the mightiest lion.
My point of sharing this illustrative story here on my blog is to showcase the importance and the value of all Team members.
But most importantly to actually be a team member to be valued.
I have the priviliuge of being a team member, but most of all, I make sure to actually be a team member of value
If you consider yourself to be a team member and you are looking to join a marketing team working together, the you are on the right place.
