Struggling in your business?

Are you struggling in your business to make any money at all?  Maybe you’re just breaking even, but just can’t grow your business enough to meet those goals and expectation you had when you started.

You’ve reached the point where most network marketing wannabe’s call it quits..

Don’t be a wannabe…

You know, the difference between network marketers who struggle just to make a dime and the super affiliates making a of thousands of dollars of monthly residual income is that the super affiliates have pushed through the hard times, learned from their mistakes, and gone on to become rockstars.

Don’t be a wannabe…  JUST DO IT!  Everyone struggles, remember that.  It’s the one’s that throw in the towel and don’t want to climb that next mountain are the one’s who aren’t successful and stay in the same pattern of life, over and over and over again.  Be different.  Do it for YOU and your family.  Go against the norm.  Keep the vision, do what it takes.

The Fear of Losing

Do you have a fear of losing when it comes to your network marketing/direct sales business?

“Don’t let the fear of losing be greater than the excitement of winning.” ~ Robert Kiyosaki

Most people play not to lose than they actually play to win. Stepping in a direction of changing your life will always have a risk of it not working out but always consider the alternative. What happens if you don’t change your life? Do you want to be exactly where you are in 5-10 years? I surely don’t!  Feel the same way? Do something to change that.

If you have never heard of the law of attraction I would highly recommend you to watch the movie “Secret”. But long story short, what you focus on grows in your life. Therefore, if you are constantly focusing on negative things in your life and business, then you will attract even more negative things. However, when you shift your focus on all the positive things around you, you will start attracting more of the positive stuff in your life including your business. 

Play to win and get ahead in your life. What is your WHY in building your business? Really think about that. What is the WHY that makes you cry?  Why did you start your business? Really think about that, put it in front of you daily, and step out of that comfort zone so your not stuck.  You got this!

7 fearless ways successful people think

ziglar-275x210 Successful people think with strong minds. They prepare themselves mentally every day so they are prepared to face the challenges in their lives that may arise. These seven fearless ways of thinking, compiled from Forbes, are ones you may want to consider implementing yourself:

1) Move On

Fearless people, successful people, are not afraid to move on in life. They do not “waste time feeling sorry for themselves,” because they know it is not productive to their end goal. “They have learned to take responsibility for their actions and outcomes, and have an inherent understanding of the fact that frequently life is not fair.” At the end of the day, fair is a child’s word. When people realize this, they stop dwelling on the past and bounce back from mistakes faster. This allows them to be more successful in life because they do not waste time being upset about things they cannot change. Instead, they use that time to productively work on conquering new goals.

2) Keep Their Power

“Mentally strong people avoid giving others the power to make them feel inferior or bad.” Rather than allowing the thoughts of the many different people they come across affect their way of thinking, successful people realize that everybody has different opinions and that not everybody’s opinions matter or should be taken personally. They know they are “in control of their actions and emotions. They know their strength is in their ability to manage the way they respond.” Even when the chips are down and the insults feel personal, successful people find a way to look ahead and ignore the people tearing them down.

3) Accept Change

There is an old adage that claims the only things that are certain in life are death and change. “Mentally strong people embrace change and they welcome challenge.” In order to change yourself, you have to challenge yourself. If you are not challenging yourself, you are going to stay in the same spot for the rest of your life or ultimately begin to slip backwards. Mentally strong people, fearless people, successful people think in a way that will allow them to make changes in their life and accept changes that come so that they can get stronger with each day. “An environment of change and even uncertainty can energize a mentally strong person and bring out their best.”

“A mentally strong person is willing to take calculated risks.” Successful people think that risks sometimes bring out the best results in life. They aren’t careless, but rather “weigh the risks and benefits thoroughly, and will fully assess the potential downsides and even the worst-case scenarios before they take action.” They don’t shy away from risks, but they don’t plunge into ones without thinking them through first. However, it is the risks in life that make life interesting and sometimes bring out the most incredible results. Successful people are wiling to take this chance when it makes sense to them.

5) Applaud Others’ Successes

Jealousy and resentment are both emotions that can be incredibly prohibiting to one’s success. “It takes strength of character to feel genuine joy and excitement for other people’s success. Mentally strong people have this ability.” You only get what you work for in life. Dwelling on the idea of unfair successes will get you nowhere. Successful people think, and they think correctly, that the successes of other people are not inversely tied with their own failures. They can recognize the difference between their own successes and the successes of others and realize that even if there is a possible connection, the focus that will provide the most beneficial outcome is for them to focus on their own journeys and successes.

6) Remain Resilient

“Every failure is a chance to improve.” Successful people fail, too. The difference is that they get back up and keep fighting. No successful person is where they are today because they just slipped through life as casually as an afternoon breeze in the autumn. Every person in this world who is truly successful has been tenacious and hard-working. “Mentally strong people are willing to fail again and again, as long as the learning experience from every ’failure’ can bring them closer to their ultimate goals.” Sometimes failure teaches you more than a win ever could.

7) Earn Their Wins

Successful people think in terms of earning potential. They do not “feel the world owes them anything. Particularly in the current economy, executives and employees at every level are gaining the realization that the world does not owe them.” In order to be successful, it is vital that you think with a strong mind and work for your successes. They will never be handed to you on a silver platter. You must earn them and even when you think you’ve earned them, realize that sometimes you have to work four times as hard as you could have ever expected to get somewhere. Yet, successful people think, and think correctly, that if they work hard enough they will eventually earn the wins they want in life. The world may not owe them anything, but the world is much more likely to give them things if they work hard for them.

19 Hard Things You Need To Do To Be Successful

19 Hard Things You Need To Do To Be Successful

You have to do the hard things.

What are the 19 hard things you need to do to be successful?

Make the call you’re afraid to make.
Get up earlier than you want to get up.
Give more than you get in return right away.
Care more about others than they care about you.
Fight when you are already injured, bloody, and sore.
Feel unsure and insecure when playing it safe seems smarter.
Lead when no one else is following you yet.
Invest in yourself even though no one else is.
Look like a fool while you’re looking for answers you don’t have.
Grind out the details when it’s easier to shrug them off.
Deliver results when making excuses is an option.
Search for your own explanations even when you’re told to accept the “facts.”
Make mistakes and look like an idiot.
Try and fail and try again.
Run faster even though you’re out of breath.
Be kind to people who have been cruel to you.
Meet deadlines that are unreasonable and deliver results that are unparalleled.
Be accountable for your actions even when things go wrong.
Keep moving towards where you want to be no matter what’s in front of you.

You have to do the hard things. The things that no one else is doing. The things that scare you. The things that make you wonder how much longer you can hold on.

Those are the things that define you. Those are the things that make the difference between living a life of mediocrity or outrageous success.

The hard things are the easiest things to avoid. To excuse away. To pretend like they don’t apply to you.

The simple truth about how ordinary people accomplish outrageous feats of success is that they do the hard things that smarter, wealthier, more qualified people don’t have the courage — or desperation — to do.

Do the hard things. You might be surprised at how amazing you really are.

No Results? How do I stay motivated.

motivation

There are a couple of ways that you can stay motivated while you are not getting results. One is to look at people who are very successful that also failed. Look at Ray Kroc who was a failure his whole entire life until he stumbled upon a burger stand and ended up buying out that little burger stand and created McDonald’s in the 60s. Elvis Presley got kicked off that Grand Old Opry stage and was told to go back truck driving.  Look at all your upline Directors in your business!  Do you think they felt like it was going well all the time for them?  NO!  They struggle too!

Not getting results is part for the course. It’s just how it is. It is how it is for everyone in a network marketing business.  You are NOT alone! Sometimes it is hard to stay motivated.

How to become successful is to be persistent through failure.

That is literally only 50% of the equation. Now most people are persistent. You have to persistent through failure… over and over again.  This is how to GET to success.

I failed in a lot of different things. Thank God, I tried one more time. One more time.

It’s normal….you have to understand that. Normal for EVERYONE. It’s normal to be doing work and not getting results. That’s normal. Keep going. Be persistent. Let the vision of who you want to become pull you pass these obstacles and this is why. Just having a WHY isn’t enough. It’s not enough to have a why. You have to have a vision of who you want to become that is so powerful. Who are you? Who do you want to become? That vision is so critical to get you past the obstacles because there will be obstacles all along the way.  Be persistent through failure.

How to get People to Join your Business

network-marketing

The question really is, how do you get people to do anything?

How do you get people to join your business? When someone says to me that no one is joining their team, I say “Okay, how many people did you prospect last week?” “Well, only two.” Well, okay, even if you’re amazing at recruiting, and you have a 50% close rate, that’s one person.

How many people are you asking on a daily basis? That’s a big question. Are you speaking with at least 2 new people a day, 10 people a week?

There is hope. Yes, there is.

So how do you get people to join your business? You have heard it is a numbers game and it certainly is, however, you should always be working on improving your skills. Mindset and personal development skills. There are many network marketing industry trainers out there to tap into.  Always work to improve your conversion rate and the way that you do that is by listening to network marketing trainings online, going through network marketing books, practice, all of these things. Spend time studying the network marketing industry. Learn more on persuasion, influence, prospecting, closing.

So, want more people to join your team? Number one, work on your skills and that comes with practice. That comes with studying. Number two, it does come to a numbers game. It does.

19 hard things you do to be successful

I don’t want to say to just keep prospecting without giving you the advice of work on your skills too, so it’s a one-two punch. You work on your skills, and you get out there and hit the numbers.  That is how you will build a large organization and an awesome business. Best wishes. You got this!

Where do you want to be in 5 years?

Where would you like to be in 5 years with your business?

One of the top reasons for owning your own business is that it leads to financial freedom. Meaning, being able to earn lots of money without you needing to be there. The problem with a job is that you are “Selling time for money”. This means that you can never stop working because your income also stops. With a business, you have hundreds of customers (distributors) that are generating the income. This means you can go on holiday for a month and be making more money when you come back than when you left!

It is very difficult to be able to double your income with a job.

In fact, the average pay rise is currently around 2%. This is crazy, especially since inflation is closer to 10%. However, with a business, it is a lot easier to get twice as many “customers” next year than the last, which in turn doubles your income. The smart people are now building their own businesses on the side.

Where do YOU want to be in 5 years?

You don’t have to get paid by the hour!

Forget Failures In Your Network Marketing Business

Forget past mistakes. Forget failures. Forget about everything ...

Forget failures

Therefore, forget failures in your network marketing business. Also, it will be very hard for you to find someone of success that has made no mistakes or didn’t fall on their face a few times along the way. Why then does it matter that you didn’t succeed at something in the past.

Why do many people fail in network marketing? There are many reasons why they fail and I’m going to point out exactly what people should look for, so that doesn’t happen to them.

6 Reasons Why I Failed to Build a Network Marketing Business by profitableventure.com
  • Wasn’t prepared. The first reason why I failed to succeed in the network marketing industry was lack of preparation. …
  • Had the wrong perception. …
  • Lacked sales skills. …
  • Was afraid of rejection. …
  • Lacked leadership skills. …
  • I gave up too soon.
The thing about network marketing, is that if you stick with it and work hard, you can make an infinite amount of money. But, if you are like a lot of people, there’s a good chance you’ll get discouraged and quit.

It is all about what you focus on.

IF you focus on anything but where you want to go, you have already lost the game. Keep that goal in front of you at all times.  Where do you want to be in your business, who do you want to be?  Forget failures. You will have many ups and downs along the way, you will get many NO’s and that’s ok!  Above all, keep your eyes on the prize and keep reaching.  Stay strong, you can do this.  You got this!

It Takes Guts

cher_burlmoment-300x277

“Until you’re ready to look foolish, you’ll never have the possibility of being great.” – Cher

It takes guts

It takes guts to go in a different direction than the masses.  If you are worried about what others think of you or more focused on how you “may” look to others, you will most certainly never have the life of your dreams or the life you could have created.

Fear is normal, natural and there is probably not a person on the planet who will say they have not had fear at some point in their business.

Fear is a constant for many of us. Courage is not the absence of fear, but the desire for something greater and therefore a willingness to push through fear.

To succeed, you must learn to overcome the biggest challenges in a sales role, like the ones described below.
  1. Prospecting. Many sales people will tell you the toughest part of their job is prospecting. …
  2. Offering Value. …
  3. Handling Rejection. …
  4. Gaining Commitments. …
  5. Lack of Efficiency. …

WHY are you building your business?  What is it that will make you move from the masses and step out of your comfort zone to achieve your dream?  What is the why that makes you cry?  It’s got to be strong and powerful to give you a clear vision and drive to move forward no matter what the obstacles.  You will have many obstacles along the way to success.  Focus on the end results and keep pushing forward no matter what. You got this!

Success!
