What strategies should you be implementing in order to succeed?
Chances are, you already know the answer to this question. So the next logical thing to ask is: are you doing them?
The reality is that most people know what they should be doing but they’re either not doing it or they don’t have the belief, so they don’t have significant results. But knowing the theory and having the skills are only 20% of the success equation. What about the rest?
Fact of the matter is, 80% of success is mindset!
So if you’re not seeing the results you want to have, keep reading! Because inside this training, we’ll dive deeper into several tips and strategies that helped us get through the days when all we wanted to do was quit. Are you ready? Let’s go!
Change Your Mindset, Change Your Business – 6 Tips for Network Marketing Success
Tip #1: When You Don’t Feel Like it, Do It Anyway
That’s easier said than done. But the truth is, when you don’t feel like doing something, that’s the exact moment when you need to push yourself to do it.
Why? Because it’s the Law of Inertia — a body in rest tends to stay in rest. A body in motion tends to stay in motion. Make yourself do the thing you don’t feel like doing for 5 minutes. So start by doing something small. Tell yourself, “I’ll reach out to 1 person today”. Pretty soon, that one person will turn into 3, 4, 5, and even more?
Tip #2: This is Your Business
How badly do you want to succeed?
The sad truth about Network Marketing is that many people quit because the entry barrier is low. They think to themselves, “This only cost me $200, so it’s ok if it doesn’t work out”.
But think about this: if you had invested $2 million dollars, would your mindset change?
This is a business, just like any other, so treat as such. And give it a chance to gain traction! You don’t expect a traditional business to become profitable immediately after launch, right? So why would your Network Marketing business be any different?
Tip #3: Focus On Your Goals
What’s easier: to do a follow-up call with a prospect or to create a picture quote?
There will always be a reason to put off your income producing activities and go for the busy tasks.
Sure, it’s easier not to do a Facebook Live; it’s easier not to reach out to people; it’s easier not to read a book. Yes, it’s so much easier to watch that movie and “live” someone else’s life for a couple of hours. But what you’re doing is watching other people’s dreams… And it’s time to stop!
So move the TV out of your bedroom. Stop watching YouTube. And if any friends or family members are constantly telling you how your business is not going to work, have an honest conversation with them about how their negativity is affecting you. Remember: stay focused!
Tip #4: Get Comfortable with Being Uncomfortable
Have you ever felt embarrassed to reach out to someone because you’re not making as much money as you’d like to?
The irony of it is that you need to reach out to people in order to make money! So let’s stop this Catch 22!
All those awkward conversations you’ve had or Live videos that went horribly wrong? You can look at them and say:
“I failed, this is not for me…”
“Yes, I failed but this will be a funny story to tell someday when I’m successful!”
Don’t get bitter, get better and embrace the suck! There’s no way around it. You’ll be bad before you’re good, good before you’re great, and great before you’re exceptional! And all those speed bumps along the way? They’ll make for hilarious anecdotes when you’re speaking on stage!
Tip #5: Work, Work, Work
Rihanna was right! You need to “work, work, work, work, work”!
As amazing as personal development is, you’ll learn so much more from practical experience!
So establish this rule: for every personal development video or course you watch, and for every book you read, commit to implementing at least 1 tip/strategy that you’ve learned right away! That way not only will your business improve but you’ll start to gain momentum!
Tip #6: Have Perspective
Why aren’t you reaching out to the number of people you know you should be? Are you afraid they’ll reject you?
Let’s get our priorities straight. What’s more frightening: 1 person telling you, “I’m not interested right now” or waking up at 90 and realizing that you didn’t live the life you wanted because you were too afraid to even try?
PRO Tip: … YET!
Remember this word! Because it’s what will determine your success!
You’re not making enough sales… yet. Or you’re not recruiting enough business partners… yet. And your business might not be where you want it to be… yet!
Change is constant! Success comes after every failure, and the only thing you need to do is keep going. Keep showing up and keep delivering. Because it’s ALL going to make sense in the end!
