God wants to free our schedules so we have time to listen to Him. One of the things He desires to tell us is where He wants us to serve Him each day. He does not want us to be so preoccupied with making money that we don’t have time to sit and listen to where HE wants to use us and it what specific way on any particular day.
For most of us, our lives are currently so stressed out that we have no time to care for our physical health, which in turn creates chaos in our mental, emotional and spiritual life. God knows we need money in this world in order to not just survive from day to day, but also to thrive. We can’t get anything or go anywhere unless we have money, but working a full-time job in order to make that money has been creating lifestyles that are way too hectic.
The majority of us feel that spending time with God is a waste of time because it’s not creating an income to care for ourselves and our family, but taking Him out of our life has created emotional and mental chaos. Coming to God with the intent of listening to Him and asking Him where He wants us to serve Him each day is the most important activity we can do.
We must learn to quiet our hearts and minds and listen intently to His voice. At first it may feel awkward and others may make us feel like it’s a waste of time, but once we surrender ourselves completely to Him and build an intimate relationship with Him, that time with Him will be the time we most look forward to each day. We will crave time alone where we can simply sit in silence, listening to His still voice; we will no longer feel bored when we have to wait in line, or in a dentist office, or in a court room when we are called in for jury duty at a specific time for several days or weeks, etc.
So how can we bring in a great income without working a full-time job or as business owners with the intent of making it thrive? The answer lies in the network marketing profession.
Before you dismiss me, listen up for a moment. I am not asking you to become sales people for a specific company nor to be talking incessantly about a specific product line. I’m also not going to ask you to recruit leaders so that you can be compensated monetarily by the company you choose to represent. That should never be our main objective.
The main goal of the network marketing profession, aka MLM, is to create a LIFESTYLE in which we do not have to worry about money ever again. We will be able to live wherever we want to live without worrying that won’t have the money to do so. We will be able to travel if we desire. We will be able to have time to take care of ourselves physically - we will have time to dedicate to exercise, to fix and eat nutritious meals, and to get enough rest during the day and sleep at night - so that we will not be physically, mentally and emotionally drained all the time. And, of course, we will have time to sit and listen to God in whatever setting we prefer (at home, on a walk, at the beach, out fishing, camping, etc) and pursue an intimate relationship with Him; we will have time to sit quietly and listen to His instructions so we can joyfully serve Him in a specific way on any specific day without any time constraint or conflict.
As we each share our experiences with the products we use from the specific network marketing company with which we choose to partner, we help others create their own memberships. If they choose to do the same thing, then we are effectively building a business that requires very little time from us and the company will compensate us all monetarily.
However, I must admonish you to NOT pursue this as your full-time career right away. It’s important that you learn to merely invest 10% of your current household income - from the way you currently make money right now (and even if that is currently unemployment money you get from the government) - and, as your income surpasses what you need each month to live, then you can choose whether or not to let go of your current job.
The time it will take for you to create an income that surpasses what you are currently making will vary tremendously, but as long as you don’t quit, you will be create an income that surpasses your expectations.
Your main goal must always be to create a lifestyle that is peaceful and that frees up your time so that you can pursue what God desires you to do every day, which will vary since there is so much He wants to do in this world. That is why He endowed each of us with certain gifts, talents, and personalities.
He wants you to be healthy in every area of your life, so He wants you to create a lifestyle where you have the time to take good care of yourself physically, mentally and emotionally; through this ideal lifestyle you will be able to do so, so pursue it because it is most definitely attainable. Therefore, pick to partner with a network marketing company that offers products that are of very high quality and will enhance that healthy lifestyle.
As you share your experience about the products from the company with which you chose to partner, do so with the intent of helping them know that these products exist and that they can get them as well; let them know the company will ship the products directly to their house, which is definitely a time saver - it’s time we can use doing other more important things. Once they receive the products and realize that the products truly do help enhance their life, ask them to please share their experiences as well so that people that they know can know that these products exist and they can purchase them in the same way as they are doing. As each of you starts doing this consistently, each of your individual businesses es grows, and therefore your income grows. One day you will receive a check that will help you be extremely grateful that you did this because now you will not have to ever worry about money again, and you have been able to create a very peaceful lifestyle where you could pursue your passions and desires God placed on your heart, while at the same time taking good care of yourself physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, by creating and maintaining healthy lifestyle habits.
