According to the American Heritage dictionary a follower is
- One who subscribes to the teachings or methods of another; an adherent: a follower of Gandhi.
- A servant; a subordinate.
- A fan; an enthusiast.
- One that imitates or copies another: A successful marketing campaign will have many followers.
A leader is one who leads or guides.
Many people do there best to lead others without first being followers. It is the reason why people fall and become unsuccessful. To become great leaders we must first learn to become great followers.
Think about it for a minute. Everything we know is because someone taught us. We had to learn to follow the persons teaching in order to get the information we have.
Network marketing is no different than the other things we have learned. We need someone to follow and someone who can guide us. We all need a mentor in our lives.
We must find a mentor and learn all we can from them. In return we should become mentors ourselves.
