29BE SEEN – YOU NEED TO BE VISIBLE Why? Team members want to be able to say with pride, “I am part of [your name]’s team”Your success story is the story your team will use before they have a success story of their ownBe seen to be the EXAMPLE that your team want to followBy the Power of Attraction, the more high profile you are the more people will be attracted to you

35You are not allowing people to grow I bend backwards to help my team …I do everything for them …There’s the main reason you are not getting the FULL potential from your teamYou are not allowing people to grow
36The more you do for someone … the less they will do for themselves Give them things to do … give them action steps and target datesDon't chase people (sifting)Give them hurdles (work on their weaknesses – give them rewards)
37Some have skills of management … others don’t Don’t push people into areas they do not want to go … because you will lose themLet them grow with their businesses … and with your support and training see where they end upBe a boss for some … or be a team player for others

49A man found a cocoon of a butterfly and one day a small opening appeared. He sat and watched the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to force its body through that little hole.
50Then it seemed to stop making any progress Then it seemed to stop making any progress. It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could and it could go no further.So the man decided to help the butterfly… he took a pair of scissors and snipped off the remaining bit of the cocoon.
51The butterfly then emerged easily The butterfly then emerged easily. But it had a swollen body and small, shrivelled wings.The man continued to watch the butterfly because he expected that, at any moment, the wings would enlarge and expand to be able to support the body, which would contract in time.
52Neither happened!In fact, the butterfly spent the rest of its life crawling around with a swollen body and shrivelled wings - it never was able to fly.
53What the man in his kindness and haste did not understand was that the restricting cocoon and the struggle required for the butterfly to get through the tiny opening …
54… was nature's way of forcing fluid from the body of the butterfly into its wings so that it would be ready for flight once it achieved its freedom from the cocoon.
55Sometimes struggling is exactly what we need in our life. If nature allows us to go through life without any obstacles, it would cripple us. We would not be as strong as we could be.
56I found a lot of real and deep wisdom in this story. It taught me two things:
57That I must develop and grow through adversity and pressure, and2. That in my FM business I must allow my downline members to develop and evolve in the same way that I have.
58I cannot do the work for them. If they are going to grow into beautiful butterflies, they must do it themselves through adversity and pressure (guided by their Support Team members).
59What you are learning today MUST be passed downline to your leaders … or it will be wasted!
