There are some people that no matter which network marketing group they join will always rise to the top producer. There are certain people that using the same exact methods can not recruit even one person.

I used to ask myself why this is???....and I never figured it out...

When I was working on my graduate studies, I had 2 post docs in my group. One of them was very prolific. He produces quality software, experiments, theory and papers with great regularity. The other one claimed to know as much as the first one and claimed that he was simply lucky. I have seen this happens many times since and especially at work places. I disagree with notion of luck completely. Luck enters into the picture in a far more direct manner like having an accident. That is luck. All these successful individuals had an element of creativity, an element of enthusiasm and had a way with people (not neccessarily in a charming manner). These things cannot be learnt. They are innate.

My formula for success is simple. Identify your own innate strengths and exploit them well. And for those traits that you need but do not possess, hang on to the coat tails of those who do.
