I am very excited with the future with so many new activities, new products, regional events ,getting new people, achieving higher ranks, getting bigger paychecks and many more great things. Before we leap forward let’s look back some at the small mistakes we might have made so we can make the adjustments not to start the new year with old habits.
Top Biggest Mistakes Network Marketers Do
#1 Listening to People Who Have Never Succeed.
People that have never succeeded at anything in their life suddenly become the authority on Success, and try to talk you out of this wonderful industry. Do NOT let that happen, as that is like listening to a tree farmer when you have a serious heart problem or a mechanic when you have need of surgery or vice versa.
Listen to those who have done it and are willing to help you.
#2 Talking About Last Year Constantly.
The past is past.
Do NOT dwell in the past.
It is history.
LEARN from the past but do not live in it.
It simply is too damaging to your dreams.
The secret to succeeding during hard times is keeping you and your prospects FORWARD FOCUSED.
Keep them looking toward where you are TAKING THEM not what has already taken them.
#3 Saying You are Going to Keep “Trying“.
THAT is a mistake as “trying” in network marketing and is bound for mediocrity and will never be anything except the language for the failure.
There is no TRY it is either ENGAGE or not.
It is either TAKE ACTION or not. If you take action saying “I am going to try,” then what you are really saying is “I am going to give half hearted effort and see what happens.”
Don’t you think is better to “I am going to hit this one out of the park no matter what anyone says. I am finished trying – I am now in the Triumph Mode!”
People will FEEL that from you- and respond accordingly. People follow winners and Leaders.
#4 Talking to the Same People.
Get out of your comfort zone and go find some people you don’t know and change their lives.
Get out- interrupt your pattern you have developed – and start a new one. Get Uncomfortable as that is the secret to Success in any industry or walk of life. Talk to people you don’t know to stretch your possibilities and grow your skills.
Talk everyday with 10 NEW people you never spoke about your business before.
CONNECT with them in the social media arena, or out in the grocery store.
Now you are talking a wealth mindset.
#5 Continuing using the Same language as last Year.
Many people will continue to talk themselves out of this business.
They will continue to say…
“I hope this works”
“Well, I will see what happens”
“I am just not good at this.”
WRONG! You are GREAT at this!
Release that part of you deep inside. Quit talking the language of the Mediocre and putting yourself down. When you do that, unknowingly, you are programming yourself for that to happen.
Change your language and focus.
Start focusing on what you are going to SUCCEED at. Start talking your “Success Language.”
“This year is going to be the best year of my life and my business is going to be INCREDIBLE no matter what recession happens. I am going to show people how to thrive during it.”
#6 Going the Same Places
Change your locations that you do business.
WHAT??? I LOVE My grocery store. Great.
Just go to a different one for some frozen food and start new conversations with people you do not know.
Success will be hidden in conversations that you were afraid to Start.
#7 Thinking You are a Part Time Distributor.
You are in a part time wealth vehicle.
And you are NOT just a part time rep.
You are working a secondary business that will give you this year your primary income.
If you just got that then people will start feeling something totally different in your words and start responding in a different manner as well.
You work this business as you live your life.
You take it with you.
You leave it behind with people.
You let it talk while you do what you do when you are living your life.
It is called ‘Lifestyle Marketing.”
You live your lifestyle and work your business as you do. Let off the pressure and guilt. Live your life- and take your business with you and talk to people as you are out and about. Talk to people about who they know. Talk to people about how you love your secondary business- as it is portable and flexible.
Much better. People will be thinking, ” Now, I can do THAT!”
#8 Following Up, and NOT Following Through.
Most people do not know this, but when you think “follow up,” you are totally agenda driven and people FEEL that in your words and in your actions. It has a “I want something” tone to it.
A “Follow through” is a shift- and it is not wanting something- but COMPLETING something. And psychologically, people will respond to that in a much more powerful fashion. Follow through has a whole different feel to the prospect than follow up. If you do that, you will see what I mean. People LOVE the Feeling of someone completing something as many people do not do that.
#9 Thinking it is what you DO that will create Success for you in 2012.
ALL actions taken produce results. Right or Wrong. Most people get the wrong results continually.
It is NOT about taking action that will produce Success for you in 2012. Millions will take action and still struggle in their home business- with network marketing or whatever they do.
It is NOT about Action- but what is BEHIND it. It is not that a race car can go 250 miles per hours that is pushing it. It is what is behind it and inside of it that makes that possible. Same way for an athlete. It is what is BEHIND the action and Inside of it that drives it. It is the same way in a great presentation. It is the emotion BEHIND it that drives it. Same way in Networking.
It is how you PURPOSELY SEE the result in your mind-which then takes over and influences your actions dramatically-almost “programming” of sorts what will happen. It is kind of cool how God made that, and it really is powerful.
Image the result that you want in an action and then once you have soaked your brain with it continually- then take it- expecting that result. If it does not work a once- keep going, it will. Been doing that for years.
Actions are great to take- no doubt- but Imaged Actions are the type of actions that TAKE YOU- to a whole new level of result.
Believing is Seeing, Believe that you are born to Achieve Greatness and YOU WILL-
Have a wonderful day,
