Your Success Percentage

Send to Kindle

Since it’s the baseball playoffs here in the States, let me use an analogy from the sport…

If a base runner steals 25 bases in 25 attempts, you may think that makes him a great base stealer.  Actually, quite the opposite…

A good coach will tell him that if he is 100 percent successful, it means he is too cautious and is not taking advantage of the opportunities being presented to him.  In fact, many coaches expect the player to be thrown out 25 or 30 percent of the time, and then consider them a true base stealer.

Now let’s talk about you…

If everyone you prospect is enrolling – you know what that means, right?

    This is cool. I think you are finding a different way of teaching by making us think instead of telling how things should be done.

    Hey Randy,
    There isn’t 100% in MLM,or in anything else.When someone wants to get perfection for 100% he needs to be consistent.

    “Perfection is attained by slow degrees; it requires the hand of time”
