The 3 biggest mistakes Network Marketers Make…
The first one has to do with how you see yourself. What is your vision for you and your business? Most of us know what we need to do to move our businesses forward. We know the HOW to’s but how big is our reason TO DO it? Most of us haven’t spent nearly enough time on this. That is one of our first biggest mistakes when starting our businesses. The HOW TO isn’t what you are missing. It is the WHY TO which has everything to do with your vision. If you don’t have a strong enough vision and why to do this business, you can have all the how to’s and it won’t get you there. Is your vision clear? Is it strong? Is it powerful? Does it make you want to move forward? My vision is to represent this great industry in a powerful and abundant way and to be the best professional example I can be. My vision is to help a lot more people to see building a home-based business as a way up and out. My vision is to help many people to become financially free. It bothers me how many people are struggling financially today. It bothers me how many people are worried about their retirements (and they should be). We as an industry have a solution and I love that I get to represent that vision. What is your vision? Spend a minute and comment below. I would love to hear!
If you fix the first mistake – your lack of vision, the second biggest mistake will be easy to remedy.
I see many people come in and out of this. Consistency takes discipline. It takes hard work. If you work this one week and don’t make any calls for 2 weeks and then come in and work it for a few hours the 3rd week, what do you think the results will be? Would that work if you were trying to lose weight? Not very well. I always say that being consistent with your daily routine on HOW to build your business is critical. I know I became a top earner in the industry because I was consistent with the activities. And it still amazes me at how extraordinary the results are from ordinary actions done consistently. If you are consistent and you have a big vision, you only need one more thing to become a top earner in this industry.
So what is the 3rd biggest mistake network marketers make?
There are just too many network marketers that buy into that this is going to happen quickly. That it isn’t going to take serious work. This isn’t a get rich quick or get rich overnight plan. I know one thing for sure: the harder I work the luckier I get. We have to give this enough time. If you start your business (any business) with the attitude that “I will give it 6 months and see how it goes,” I can guarantee what your results will be. If you go into this saying “I have a great vision, I will be consistent and I will work this business until it works” – you increase your chances for success times 1000! What if it took you 5 years to become really successful as a professional networker? It would be worth it! Work on your vision, be consistent with the activities and give this enough time and you will be amazed. Take it seriously. I can’t even begin to tell you how glad I am that I did!
