1. Create A Vision
If you are involved in the network marketing business for very long, you will hear someone say you need to define your ‘why’.
This is crucial because as humans, we are hard-wired to recall the past. We are wired for survival mode. In ancient times, that is how people lived from day-to-day. Your brain will fire in a way that you perceive something as danger when the only way to really find out is to take action. In reality, your brain is protecting you, but it doesn’t know what the outcome is going to be.
Don’t hold back on your past vision of the times you have not succeeded. When you are looking back at your journey, it is easy to focus on the mistakes instead of focusing on the successes you achieved.
Creating a vision gives you something to look forward to. Something to accomplish in the future. If you don’t look ahead, you will fall back on the times that didn’t work out for you.
Live that vision in your mind so you actually experience the ‘feelings’ of success. Allow yourself the feelings of joy, purpose, abundance, happiness, etc.
In traditional network marketing, many people become too attached and give in to the feeling of scarcity. The same thing can happen with online marketing. In your business and in your life, negative feelings attract more negative feelings.
When you are conscious of your day-to-day feelings more people will be attracted to you and want to be around you, which creates more abundance.
2. Don’t Take Things Personally
In your business it is normal to have profit, loss, liability, expenses, etc. When you struggle with those issues, don’t take it personally. Don’t give in to the feeling that you aren’t good enough, you can’t make this happen, or what will I do if this doesn’t work.
If something doesn’t work, it just means it didn’t work. Don’t take it personally and try something else. This takes the emotion and drama out of it.
3. Know Your Audience
The more specific you can be when targeting your audience, the more successful you will be. If you are targeting network marketers, that is too broad. Be specific and fine tune your audience over time. Test your methods and find out what works and what doesn’t.
Another thing to keep in mind is that your target audience may not be profitable for you, so find the audience that responds best to your methods and work with that.
4. Attend Live Events
This is where you meet people and build networks. Surround yourself with like-minded people who know your struggles. Attending live events will give you belief and is the cornerstone for continued growth in your business.
5. Never Ever Give Up
Most people give up too early – before they reach success. When growing your business, the mechanics of running it are 10-20% while mindset is 80-90%. Accept that you can move forward, grow daily and make money.
6. Never Compare Yourself With Someone Else
Resist the temptation to compare yourself with the results of others. Don’t look at how long someone else has been involved or the amount of money they are making and compare that to your results. You don’t know their past experiences that have led them to the place they are today.
The only time to compare yourself with others is when you say, “If they can do it, so can I”.
7. Take Action Every Single Day
Even if you only have 10-15 minutes each day, consistently spend that time working on your business. Action is the only thing that will produce results. Action is what will create both habit and momentum.
