When 99% of your “sales force” loses money with your business venture, you’ve got to believe that there’s something wrong with the system. If less than 1% of people are able to turn a profit, that suggests to me that the system is terribly messed up. Of course, I don’t expect that everyone who tries a job or a business venture will succeed. But you’d think it would be more than 1%???
Well in Mary Kay, the name of the game is making all 99% of you losers acknowledge that it’s YOUR fault. It couldn’t possibly be the fault of this precious system that has been allowed continue on for 45 abusive years.
No. You are to blame. And here’s a little prayer for you. Remember, if you don’t succeed, you just weren’t ambitious enough.
Make me an ambitious, hard working consultant, dear Lord.
One who has the determination and guts to stick with it when the going gets tough.
One who sees potential in every situation and every person.
One who can become passionate and understanding but tough with love.
One who runs like a thoroughbred, charge like a Rhino but is loyal like a solider.
Lord, make me a consultant who has dreams, goals, and a vision of total success.
And Lord when you do, help me to meet challenges and obstacles with ambition, consistency, motivation, enthusiasm and excitement.
Help me to remain consistent in the goals that I set for myself and my family.
And when I am in the valley, help me to keep my gaze on the mountain top, knowing you are looking down on me.
Strengthen me with your faith, dear Lord.
Teach me the art of patience and let me know that with God all things are possible because I believe in you.
Pick me up when I am down and out, give me strength when I feel weak.
Push me when I need to be pushed and slow me down when you think I am going too fast.
And as I nurture my belief in myself, help me to get up one more time after I stumble.
And let me know ,God, that you created me to be a winner, therefore I can never lose.
And before long I will be saying, not only am I a child of an awesome God,
But I am also the winner that you created me to be in your Word.
