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!

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.

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!

Tonality

Geodynamics | Presentation skills – 1. Voice

Here’s the thing about tonality

This is the big problem, most people, they’re looking for a script. But if you use the wrong tonality in a network marketing recruiting script, it doesn’t work.

You can study network marketing recruiting materials all day long but if you don’t understand HOW to say things, your results won’t be great.

Ever practice what to say
to a prospect but it just didn’t
go well?
People that are good at sales are
naturally good at one thing that most
people don’t understand

It isn’t what you say, it’s HOW you 
say it, how you inflect your voice
at the right time.

Today, you are going to get to watch
a video that no one else in our space is
teaching.
IF you are serious about getting more results in your network marketing recruiting, be sure to watch the below video where he shares:
  1. How to sound when calling leads
  2. How to sound when you want to get someone to join or buy
  3. EXACTLY what I say to people after they have watched a presentation and more importantly HOW I sound

You Don’t Get Paid by the Hour

“You don’t get paid by the hour. You get paid by the value you bring to the hour.” – Jim Rohn

It isn’t enough to say how much you have been working or that you have been “busy”. What have you been busy doing? In other words, how many people are you exposing to your presentation and opportunity each month/week/day? In addition, you will face some rejection. Not comfortably in your home office watching videos.  For instance, make it a point to talk to at least 2 new people a day about your business, that is 10 new contacts a week! Do this week after week. After that, your business WILL  grow.

Your attitude and belief will come across in the way you talk to people… some will catch your excitement, your urgency and your belief and choose to join you, going on to share their new business with that same level of excitement, passion and commitment as well.

Here’s the thing: in order to be successful in your business, you need to develop the attitude that you are going to the top. Along the way, you’re going to take a lot of people with you. Along the way, you’re going to leave even more people behind. Not because you chose to leave them there, but because THEY chose to stay there. And there’s nothing you can do about it. You have not control what others choose to do. Only yourself.

You got this!

Stop Complaining and Change!

How many times have you seen an, “Ugh, I hate Mondays” post on social media?

I-Hate-Mondays-Simpsons-Picture

Those who are completely happy have put themselves in that position because anything other than happiness just isn’t acceptable. They made sacrifices and worked hard until they reached the level of happiness they were striving for.

It all comes down to identifying what it is that you want, formulating a plan to get there and then working hard until you reach your desired goal. It has nothing to do with luck.

If you are unhappy, you currently have two options: You can complain about it and hope it magically changes, or you can set out to make a change. For the latter, here is a simple four-step plan to help you achieve happiness. If you are unhappy you owe it to yourself to make a change — life is too short to delay any longer.

1. Determine why you are unhappy.

There are several reasons why you could be unhappy — you could be working a job that you don’t truly love, working with people you don’t enjoy being around or doing something you are over-qualified for.

It might not be work related at all — you might be in a dead end or unhealthy relationship. There could be a million different reasons, and it’s up to you to identify them. Whatever they are, just know that you aren’t going to find true happiness until you first single out what the problem is.

2. Change your attitude.

The first thing I mentioned above was the “FML” and “Ugh, I hate Mondays” social media status updates we all see on a regular basis — that type of attitude sets the tone. If you are constantly filling your head with a negative outlook, what do you expect will happen?

Negative thoughts breed negativity and unhappiness, while positive thoughts breed positivity and happiness.

When it comes down to it we are all responsible for our own happiness. The only way you will be happy is by changing your attitude and understanding that you are in full control, and fully capable of changing your situation.

3. Create a plan to reach happiness.

When you know why you are unhappy and are armed with a positive attitude, you can start to devise a plan to achieve happiness. This is where many people hit a mental roadblock and self-doubt enters their minds.

“I’m not going to find a better job.”
“I wont find someone else.”
“I’m too old to start a business.”

Excuses are made to justify remaining miserable. If you are serious about truly being happy you need to push all self-doubt out of your mind and commit to developing a plan to become happy. Determine what your ultimate end goal is and reverse engineer the steps you will need to take to reach it.

4. Take action and don’t look back.

With your plan outlined it’s time to move forward and never look back. Simply taking action doesn’t guarantee results — your journey to happiness could include mistakes, rejection and disappointment. But if you don’t take action there is only one guarantee, and that is your situation will never improve and you will remain unhappy.

Happiness isn’t going to happen overnight — you have to continue to push forward, regardless of how difficult it may appear.
