Practicing the Golden Rule in life is important for happiness. But to NOT practice the Golden Rule in Network Marketing is self sabotaging!
Do unto others what you would have them do unto you.
Don’t do unto others what you Don’t want them to do to you.
I’ve been in Network Marketing now for 17 years and I’ve seen a lot of broken Golden Rules. I’ve also seen the Golden Rule played out beautifully.
If we are Christian Network Marketers striving to honor Christ in all we do, that would definitely include how we run our business.
If you wouldn’t want others to sell products to your customers, then don’t sell to someone else’s customer if you know the customer already has a distributor. (unless they are in your downline and you transfer points)
If don’t want someone to persuade your customer or distributor to move over to their team then don’t try to persuade some else’s customer of distributor to move to your team.
How can we practice the Golden Rule in a positive way in our Network Marketing business?
Do encourage open meetings in your area. You may not be able to control what other leaders in your city do but you can control what you do as a leader.
Do have a spirit of generosity.
Do encourage a spirit of sharing with other teams. Share training, training materials, responsibilities. I’ve noticed that the teams that share the most and are the most open and generous are the ones that have great growth and are well respected.
Do respect and protect other people’s downline.
Do operate with the highest integrity in mind. I love this definition of integrity that I heard at a convention once.
“Integrity means doing the right thing even when no one is looking.”
But there is always someone watching and that is the Lord. If we care about honoring Him in our business then we will be ever mindful.
A word if you’ve broken the Golden Rule.
No one is perfect. You may have broken the Golden Rule in a small or big way but you are ready to change your ways, turn over a new leaf and strive toward a Network Marketing business with integrity.
If you’ve specifically offended someone and it is affecting your relationship with them and your business, go to them in honesty and humility. Admit your wrong action. Tell them you are turning over a new leaf, that you will strive from here on out to operate your business in highest integrity. Isn’t that what you would want them to do to you? (sound familiar?) Don’t bring up what they might have done to you. Don’t have any strings attached.
If you do this, if you practice the Golden Rule in your Network Marketing business, if you make integrity and generosity your highest priority in your business, not only will the Lord bless you for that but you will have peace of mind knowing that you are pleasing God and truly helping others.
May you truly be blessed as you practice the Golden Rule in your Network Marketing business!
