I’ve delved into the study of Psycho-Cybernetics recently
and for it I will share it’s insights with you along the
way. -See the source here (it’s actually quite fascinating,
if you’re in to that sort of thing)
Recently in reviewing this material a story of a young
college student who committed suicide was brought up in
an example of the importance of self-image to internal
In this student’s suicide note he wrote that as a young child
he was teased about having a long nose.
This affected the entire course of his life. He
truly believed he was less of a person than those around him
so much so, that when one of his teachers spelled his name
wrong on a note, he didn’t even have the confidence
to correct her.
From that point on the student spelled his name with the
error his teacher had used in order to conform. In the final
lines of his suicide note he wrote that he was afraid of people
and interactions with them, but not of death and saw that as
his only option.
This is a sad story which touched me deeply.
This young man was probably no different than you or I when it
came down to it, but he felt so inferior because of his
poor personal self-image that he felt he didn’t deserve to live.
Well I think the same thing happens to many network
They get in the game and see all the success around them and
start experiencing the hard knock life that network marketing
can be and start to equate it with them “not being good
The conversation inside your head goes something like this:
“Well, Cindy is amazing and that’s why she’s making $33,000 a
month. I’m not her so I can’t get there. I mean I’ve called
100 people and I couldn’t even get one person on the
business opportunity call. I’m not sure if I’m the type of
person who can do this.”
Here’s what I say to that!
If that’s what you think then you are right. Your mind can only
work in the direction you send it. It will work to prove
what you imagine so that you can form a true belief around
So with that knowledge I ask you . . .
Do you imagine yourself as a network marketing millionaire?
If you do (and you do it often) you will act in the direction
of proving it. And sooner or later you will become one.
If you asked me if I saw myself as a network marketing
millionaire I would without a doubt or hesitation answer
How do I know it’s going to happen?
When I tell my friends and family that I will be a network marketing
millionaire, they throw up no discourse. They believe it too.
This is my self image and that is the standpoint I work from.
Anything to get me closer to this reality, I do. Then I have
more proof and more belief. It’s a spiral upwards, if you
(The hidden benefit to you here is that wherever I go so do
Now when you can say that you are a network marketing
millionaire and believe it with full conviction it will become
true. Don’t forget it works the other way too.
What is Your Self-image?
