Of course life has the ability to throw curve balls every now and again, but it is often how you react, cope, and recover from these curve balls that decides the new direction of your path and the destination it will take you. It is often the decisions we make in the very darkest hours of our lives that set the paving stones of our future.

This is something all of us in the Direct Selling and Network Marketing industry need to remember and carry with us each and every day. In order to be successful in this industry, or any other industry for that matter, you must be willing to first sow the seed, provide the seed with the nourishment it requires to grow day by day, then wait, be patient, and watch the fruits of your labor flourish.

For many, entering a New Year represents a period of change, a time to improve your life; be it by being more active, eating healthier or earning more money. A New Year gives us the opportunity to draw a line under the past and begin looking to the future with an avid ambition to succeed. Nonetheless, the past should not simply be pushed to the back of our minds and forgotten.
