Success Cycle

‘Success remains as a dream.’ Many people approve this statement

Is there a way to make Success a reality? ‘Hard work’ is the normal prescription. There are many who take this ‘hard work’ pills regularly, still not getting the remedy towards success.

During my discussions with many successful people from various walks of life, I could register three key words in connection with success: Belief, Action, Results.
Belief makes you to Act and Action leads to Results. Try to replay in your mind some of the successes you have created in your life; you would agree that in all those cases you acted on something you believed in.
Moreover, increased belief leads to stronger action. RIGHT action leads to right results. Action leads to result is Universal law of ‘cause and effect’ . I would like to say ‘right action.’ If you keep on hammering a stone it will break; provided you are hammering on the same spot; that is right action.

Belief ignites Action and Action leads to Result and Result creates more Belief which translates into stronger Action and better Results and so on. This is the real ‘Success Cycle.’

Now you may ask, “if so, where should I start? Should I increase my Belief in the project before I act? How can I increase Belief?”
I think the toughest thing one can ever do is ‘increasing belief.’ Belief has to happen, its tough to create belief. The only thing on which you have control is ‘Action.’ If the project (personal or professional) sounds logical, just swing into action. Don’t wait for belief to come searching for you! The good thing with Action is; if it is the right Action you will get the Result as ‘cause and effect’ is a universal law.

Hence Action leads to Results and Results will boost your Belief, which in turn will ignite more Action and hence better Results and cycle goes on…

Kick start your Success Cycle today.
God bless

Resurrection

Written Sajeev Nair, Apr 20th, 2014 | Category: About Sajeev Nair | Comments: 1

Today the entire world is celebrating Easter: the Day of Resurrection

It’s a feeling of happiness and new hope everywhere; that’s is what resurrection is all about.

Jesus Christ said to her,” I am the resurrection and the life.  He who believes in me will live; even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.  Do you believe this?” John 11:25-26

For the last few months I am also experiencing the hope for resurrecting something which could be path breaking for the world.  I am an entrepreneur and one of my businesses has been Direct Selling.  Compared to any other business I always love Direct Selling, as this is the only business through which you can help others to become entrepreneurs.

In Direct Selling I have been dealing with wellness products.  In fact when I got into wellness in 2000, there was absolutely no awareness in India.  However through intense workshops and series of education programs I along with my business leaders covered lakhs of people and made them aware about wellness. The only sad thing was, after educating people about wellness products, we used to recommend American Nutritional Supplements.  Though they were all of highest quality, I always felt a pain.  While India has the oldest form of wellness knowledge, Ayurveda, which is 5000 year old wisdom, we were promoting products from west.

It was a dream for me and many people like me, who are passionate about wellness, to see Ayurveda leading the show in wellness.  Instead of we bring the nutritional supplements from America to provide wellness to Indians, how great it would be if we could provide wellness to Indians through our own Ayurveda.  Moreover, how great it would be when we take our Ayurveda to other countries and make it as a means to achieve real wellness

The challenge was to find a company, which could provide Ayurvedic products, which can stand at par or above with the International Nutrition Supplement brands.  That intense desire and dream made me and many other people finally creating a brand ‘AYUSANTE.’  Now I know Ayusante is a blessing.  It is the resurrection of Ancient Indian Wellness Wisdom.

Lets become Direct Selling Professionals

When I interacted with few senior journalists in order to make them understand about Direct Selling industry, they were all found to be confused about everything related to Direct Selling and Multi Level Marketing. They said that every person they had come across given a different perspective including meanings and vocabulary. “People involved in Investment schemes offering fast money also says that they are in MLM. People who work with good product sales oriented companies also stay that they are in MLM. How will the journalists or the regulators differentiate this?” asked one journalist. I said the key differentiator is whether there is any Direct selling of products to the Customers happen or not? “Ok, that means you guys are in Direct Selling of Products, not in MLM?” he asked in a confused tone. I said, “Yes, you are correct. We are in Direct selling of Products using Multi Level Marketing business model.” The immediate question from him was that why haven’t we told this in this way in our communications to media and to regulators.
Direct Selling can be done using different marketing models; e-commerce, party plan, single level marketing, multi level marketing etc. Companies which are in Direct Selling choose one of the marketing models for developing the marketing plan. So, those who are working with Product Based Direct Selling companies should start saying, “We are in Direct Selling of Products using Multi level marketing model.”

This may be one of the many mistakes, which we have created in the market through unprofessional way of communication. I think it is not enough that the distributors of one company use the right language and vocabulary. The language, vocabulary etc need to be uniform amongst all the distributors of all the companies. One more reason for having a professional body, which can bind the people involved in this industry, be it distributors or employees.

Once we have a Professional Body with clear-cut guidelines for the conduct and behavior of the people involved in this industry, we will see uniformity and also professionalism. This is the only way we can enhance professionalism in this industry and create a sense of pride among the people who are part of this industry.

Its time to Stand TOGETHER

It was a good meeting yesterday at Cochin. Though there were only about 200 people I knew that I was speaking to 200000 people as I knew that each one hold a strength of 1000 or more people. This was the Leadership

Forum constituted by the Distributors of various Direct Selling Companies operating in Kerala. Senior most leaders of companies like Modicare, DXN, Mona.Vie. Klink, FLP, Sami Direct, RMP (MI Lifestyle), Tupperware, or in short, leaders from all companies except Amway were there in the meeting.

Companies and Distributors have been fighting against Kerala Government for the brutal Police action, which has been going on for the past two years. Though there have been series of meetings, strikes and dharnas against this police action, it was found that things have not moved at the pace what the industry wanted. While in all those meeting the tone of the speech was more of anger, frustration, fight and sacrifice, this meeting had a different tone.

It was almost a month back I along with a few senior distributor leaders from various companies put a different thinking hat. While we always preach in our motivational sessions that ‘every adversity has an equal or better opportunity,’ we contemplated what could be that opportunity here. We dug deep into the issues and one realization was that though there are more than three lakh families in Kerala associated with genuine Direct Selling business, these families and people are not united. They are being separated by the ‘Company’ tags. Companies created thick walls amongst these people, with the fear that ‘if my distributor get exposed to another company, he might jump into that. ‘

While there could be many cardiologists practicing in a small city, competing with one another, they all meet up once in a month for an IMA meet or in various Cardiologists Conferences. CME (Continuing Medical Education) is compulsory for these professionals. Architects have their own association; which is also constituted with the mission of providing professional enhancement. In short every professional/self employee is part of one or another Professional body which brings the whole community of those professionals under one umbrella.

In fact Direct Selling Industry has more self-employees than any other profession, be it doctors or architects. But we don’t have a professional body. When issues happened in Kerala trade unions came in rescue of people. But that is issue based. But we found that it is high time that we form a Professional Body where distributors from various Direct selling companies (genuine companies which are product sales based) can become a part of. This Association will definitely bring in massive strength to the people in this industry; more over will set high professional standards which will be imparted through rigorous trainings and workshops.

Will write more in the coming blogs…
