What we can learn for a windowsill of dead flies


By: Thomas Signorello  November 23rd, 2013


I heard this story many times over the years from my good friend, Jordan Adler. Here's the author of "Beach Money" and a great storyteller. He also is one of the Top 10 Networker's in the world!

When he presents from the stage, he tells this short little story ...

We stand in a room. The room is relatively small and there is a single window in it. The window has clean/clear glass in it and it is closed as well as locked. There is no way to open the window.

Bumping up against this window are a few flies. They buzz and bump ... buzz and bump ... eventually ending up on the windowsill with many of the other flies who tried to escape to freedom. What a sad way to go.

We've all seen this. Flies trying over and over to "escape" and get to the open air. They can see it. Yet, they try over and over to have different results. Buzz, buzz, buzz ... Bump, bump, bump.

Hundreds of them try. Almost all fail and fall to their death. It's a sad story.

The saddest part, is that there is an open door on the other side of the room, less than ten feet away. The door leads to freedom and safety. Yet, virtually all of the flies die. A few see the door and make it out. They go on to live happy, healthy lives.

When it comes to Network Marketing and Direct Sales, some people will not embrace the profession or the concept. They will be quick to criticize and tell others what they "can't" do. 

They then go back to their work in the corporate world or small business endeavor and trade time for dollars, never truly understanding the power of leveraged income and the freedom that it can bring. 

However for some, they will embrace the "new" way of thinking and attempt another way. Like the flies in the story, they will see a different way to freedom. Some will make it. With it comes a life of abundance. The alternative ... too horrible for me to imagine!
