C’mon use that brain

Genius according to dictionary meaning is described as follows

  1. somebody with outstanding talent: somebody with exceptional ability, especially somebody whose intellectual or creative achievements gain worldwide recognition
  2. outstanding talent: exceptional intellectual or creative ability
  3. somebody with specific skill: a person with great specialized skill e.g. a genius with computers
  4. influence: somebody who or something that exerts a strong influence e.g.· an evil genius

Looking at the definitions critically today I told myself that a genius is simply someone who dared to use his brain and became exceptional at what he did while using that brain.

I took a quick look at some of the people we have called geniuses and most of them especially Thomas Edison seem to agree with me that we can all be called geniuses if and when we started using our brains.

Thomas Edison explained to me that using our brains was key to riches and glory.

He had predicted in his time that 100 year from then which is now people will not be poor anymore and luxuries will be available at very cheap prices.

There will be no poverty in the world a hundred years from now,” said Edison. “There is no limit to the cheapness with which things can be made. The world will soon be flooded with the cheap products of machinery—not the poor products; the cheap products.”

The world flooded with food, clothing, shelter, and luxuries! No half-starved children, no overworked mothers, no poverty-worried fathers, no disease-breeding, cheerless tenements or houses. The world flooded with food, clothing, shelter, and luxuries!

Impossible? Read on:

“Why should we expect poverty to continue?” asked Edison. “Poverty was for a world that used only its hands. When men used nothing but their hands, poverty was most intense. Now that men have begun to use their brains, poverty is decreasing. Poverty is decreasing though we have been using our brains only a little while. Think how long the world has stood, and then recall that practically everything we know to-day that is worth while we have learned within a hundred years. Look about you and see how many things that were worth while were known a hundred years ago. And we have only just begun to use our brains. What we know is but an atom of what there is to know. But we are learning how to control the forces of nature. As we learn, we shall transform the world. The most wonderful changes are coming—changes about which no one can to-day do more than dream.”

He was right!

He believed that men were poor when they only used their hands. But as soon as mankind starts exploring the possibilities of using the brain, there was no reason for them to be poor.

What really baffle me is to see brilliant people suffer and languish in poverty. Do they not know the story of Jim Carey?

C’mon use that brain! Take a bold step and just do something creative, persistently until the world begins to acknowledge you for it. Then come back and tell me if you purse remained the same size.

Go ahead and exhibit uniqueness.

Network Marketing

Network Marketing also known as Multi-level Marketing by my understanding usually is about buying a product, trying it to see if it is good and then referring friends to also try it. We all do it. The difference is that sometimes we get rewarded for it and sometimes we don’t.

The world is gradually coming to realize that the fast way to circulate information is encourage telling a friend. Be it news, a product or a service, encouraging the “tell a friend” syndrome allows word about it to spread like wild fire. What better way to encourage the “tell a friend” syndrome than to attach a reward for telling a friend.

We cannot really blame the industry that chooses to spread the knowledge of its products or services this way since this method is tested a proven to be a lot more effective. Little wonder producers and service providers are moving in that direction now. Neither can we blame the network marketer for choosing to put some effort into it. Deciding to do so has enormous advantages:

  • You can earn some monetary reward aside your regular job
  • You can be your own boss at it
  • All you have to do sometimes is refer
  • Those you refer will thank you for so in a way you are making money and helping a friend at the same time.

We live in world now where some of people will not refer unless there is reward for referring. Some will only buy a product only if referral bonuses are available. Meanwhile some cannot even stand to hear network marketing: they detest it like a plague. The truth unfortunately is we all make referrals to goods and services that we have tested and found to be good to our friends. So when an opportunity to make money comes from making the referrals why not grab it. We have nothing to lose and a lot to gain for doing so.

I cannot find any reasons why not so I’m asking. If there is anybody there who knows any reasons why we should not grab an opportunity to get paid for making referrals especially where we have been making the referrals for free before…. Pls lets have some reasons hear.

Call me an MLM junkie but as for me Network marketing it is…all the way. I need not tell you that’s how I bought my first car.
