Mikko Jarrah has been a serial entrepreneur for over ten years and now he is one of the top leaders in Zinzino. In this blog article, Mikko explains the importance of taking responsibility for your own life and how direct sales help change people’s lives- not only financially.
“This is life changing business development. It’s not only about the money. It’s about who you become – who you are as a person. You are the designer – the Michelangelo of your own life.” – Mikko Jarrah
Am I happy?
Am I doing things that I love?
Do I have support from my family and friends?
Can I spend my days as I want?
Can I travel where I want?
These questions I asked myself several times some years ago and I received some vague answers.
Later I realized that I have done a lot of work to get to this point where I have this incredible lifestyle and now I can say that I am happy. At the end of the day all we want is to be truly happy, healthy and loved.
As a direct sales professional I meet several people daily and I like asking questions.
During the first 5-10 minutes with a new person I often realize that most people don’t have any big plans in their life, or the plan is designed by someone else:
Society, parents, spouse, boss or their high school teachers and friends.
There is nothing wrong with this kind of lifestyle, but many people often get depressed at some point and might get pretty lost in their lives when they find out that they are living someone else’s dream.
Don´t you want to take responsibility of your life and get even more out of it?
Who is really leading you and your thoughts?
Your boss, your spouse, friends, parents, the bank, media, society or you?
If you live your life for yourself, you need to think about what makes you happy.
This is life changing business development. It’s not only about the money. It’s about the person you become along the way.
The real deal is when a shy person who used to pretend to be sick at home when he had to give a presentation in front of his own school mates, one year later after working in direct sales gives a key note speech in front of 1000 people – mostly strangers – and doesn’t feel any abnormal sense of nervousness – that person was me.
There are countless inspiring stories of personal development in this profession. Negative people turning positive, sad people turning happy. In general you are stretched to expand your comfort zone and develop into becoming a better person. Satisfaction kills development and in this business – we are satisfied, but not content – because there are always more to accomplish and more people to help reach their goals.
And that is the reason why I love what we do.This business is helping you achieveyour maximum potential.You are the designer – the Michelangelo of your own life.
