The “F2 World Tour: Kenya” program was held at the Nairobi Serena Hotel on 28th October, 2012.
VC Bakary Kante directed a message to Kenyans to take the leadership position they exhibit in the businesses world outside of it and apply it to the rest of the world. He drew the two extremes between himself, a holder of two doctorates, and the position he holds in his career, against the minimum formal education his up line and mentor in the business has. Despite his position, he has found the need to “shut up and listen” to one he could never come close to in his career and education background. He urged the IRs to break away from poverty by leaving laziness behind, by taking this business opportunity to its haves and the have-nots.
VC Pauline Kithuka, a power house in motivations, started off with the message that we need to hold these “business vehicles” of Qnet with the highest respect they deserve.
AVP Asha Krishnan brought the house down when she shared an emotional memory lane of her early days before she had a breakthrough. She told the story of how she used to work and work from morning to late nights. There is a price to freedom and also a cost in delays. Delays rob us of our independence. We live in times of political independence, but unless we fight and strive for our personal independence, we remain colonized, this time, not by foreign forces but by ourselves. To become truly free, we need to become and behave like warriors. We need to decide to either be wimps or warriors. She challenged the IRs to decide, what they want to be from this moment on.
VP Cherian Mathew drew the IRs attention to the 17 days left to maximize on the Bonanza. With the Bonanza or not, the 1st and most important mental positioning required for success in any field is decision-making. He pointed out that 90% of us have not yet made a decision to be and do QNET. The reason being we often take time and make many decisions which we do not stick to. He pointed out that there is no right or wrong decision. Whatever the decision, it’s our responsibility to make that decision right for us based on the activities we do. He maintained that for success to be a reality in anyone’s life, there is a need for a daily reminder of the decisions we have taken.
He further stressed that a wimp’s focus is always on the negatives: things, situations, hardships and other people not being good enough, a complainer. A warrior sees every setback as an opportunity, a stepping stone towards success, always focused on finding best solutions to resolve issues. There has to be consistency in the activities we do after making the decision. There cannot be consistency without focus. Qnet in itself is not success, it is a vehicle, but the decision to become successful is a personal decision.
Finding your 2 constantly is a recipe for success in Qnet. Finding your 2 and helping your two find theirs and so on is not a major thing if and when a decision has been made. Strong resolutions have to be made to not be swayed in every which direction by keeping decisions alive and paying the price.
