In my personal opinion, Network Marketing is one of the most unique industries in this world… Within the framework of building a business from home, the journey holds the key to not only creating an income through part time work, the journey opens the door to personal development more than any other Industry I’ve ever been in.
I was looking for something else (isn’t that usually the case) when I came across this. It lays out some great points for those who want to lead. I don’t think this is just in Network Marketing and it ties in nicely with an article I posted not long ago on "The Difference in Where We Are and Where We Want to Be in Network Marketing". I’m sharing it with you today as more food for thought.
1. Class never runs scared. It is sure-footed and confident, and it can handle whatever comes along.
2. Class has a sense of humor. It knows that a good laugh is the best lubricant for oiling the machinery of human relations.
3. Class never makes excuses. It takes its lumps and learns from mistakes.
4. Class bespeaks an aristocracy unrelated to ancestors or money. Some extremely wealthy people have no class at all, while others who are struggling to make ends meet are loaded with it.
5. Class is real. You can’t fake it.
6. Class is comfortable in its own skin. It never puts on airs.
7. Class never tries to build itself up by tearing others down.
8. Class is already up and need not attempt to look better by making others look worse.
9. Class can walk with kings and keep its virtue and talk with crowds and keep the common touch. Everyone is comfortable with the person who has class because he is comfortable with himself.
If you have class, you’ve got it made. If you don’t have class, no matter what else you have, it won’t make up for it.”
About 5 years ago, I had the occasion to observe someone who appeared to have achieved a great position of leadership, someone I respected quite a bit, do and act in some ways that … well… shifted that conceived image of ‘leadership’ (in my eyes).
After that situation, I continued to observe (with my eyes wide open now) and it seemed that over time, this person recovered from their ‘acts’ and was back on track, proving herself to have truly become the leader I thought she was to start. However, recently, I’ve had the opportunity to see that, from my point of view, it’s mostly all been put on. The inherent traits that could be categorized as NOT having class have been exposed again….. Not through this person’s words… near as much as her actions.
So, what is the point to all of this?
Perhaps we should be paying more attention to what someone does….. rather than just what they say!
The good thing is, we can ALL learn how to have more ‘class’. More interestingly, if we’re putting on a front, it can’t be faked forever. ……. SO, as you learn and develop YOUR level of ‘class’ …. remember this …….
If you have class, you’ve got it made. If you don’t have class,
no matter what else you have, it won’t make up for it.
