College and University are not the only options for our high school graduates, though we have been taught that they are, if we want a higher income. After all, we all want and even need a higher monthly income in order to survive, and hopefully thrive in this world. We have to realize that money is definitely important in this world because it is the currency we use to pay for a place to live, the food that nourishes us, the car we want to drive, and even those fun things like vacations and amusement parks.
Not everyone enjoys going to school, which is why many don’t even want to finish high school! Many feel that they have no options and have been labeled “losers” and so they choose to hang out with people that will see them as the leaders that they are, or even just make them feel like they belong somewhere, and they are not simply “society outcasts”.
Others, with the encouragement of loving parents or friends close to them, do get their high school diploma or G.E.D, but then don’t know where to go or what to do. They start getting frustrated and stressed out. People around them are going to college and universities, and they feel like they are just “not good enough”, “not smart enough”, and start getting a low self-esteem complex. Others start researching colleges with the encouragement of well-meaning parents, but they end of frustrated because they did not like traditional schooling in the first place and just barely made it through high school, though they did enjoy meeting and hanging out with the people in the school system.
When they are told of the network marketing career alternative, people around them are quick to point out that it’s a career for losers; for those who just want to make it big without much effort. The truth is that is not the reality at all!
A network marketing career will DEVELOP OUR CHARACTER. We learn to let rejection slide off our shoulder. We learn to have a growth mindset, instead of a fixed mindset. We learn to keep going in the midst of the most challenging circumstances.
A network marketing DEVELOPS EXEMPLARY LEADERS. It can be compared to the Boy Scout leadership program, only it’s for those 18 and older (some companies allow 16 year olds to start their career) and we can earn as we develop our character and train to be exemplary leaders. Instead of getting majorly in debt getting student loans, or filling out long applications to get grants so that they can study in their chosen college, trade school or university, we have the chance to earn money as we learn and lead others that start this journey under our mentorship.
A network marketing career helps us to see that we are investing our time and a small amount of money into the company every month so that we can have a passive income check coming in regardless of what we choose to do during the day - whatever our passion may be! This can only be accomplished if stay on course, though, and don’t give up on the career. Just as we can’t “make the big bucks” if we quit medical or law school early, we cannot create a good passive income unless we make “graduate” to the top leadership rank of the company with which we choose to partner.
In conclusion, I hope you can see now that a network marketing career is a great college alternative especially for those who do not want to pursue further traditional schooling for one reason or another. It will help develop their character and will train them to become exemplary leaders, without putting them heavily into debt.
