Congratulations on taking the first step to building your own home based business. Perhaps this is your first network marketing company, maybe it’s not. Many people join network marketing companies and don’t stay with it. Have you ever heard of the 4 month breakage rule? Many people can’t get past the first 4 months because of the rejection. They don’t have the ability to stay focused and on task. If they aren’t breaking even or if it’s a health related product and they don’t feel better after 4 months, they quit. These network marketers have a decision to make; they can stick with it and not give up, quit the industry all together or they can look for another network company to join.
Whether you are new to network marketing or not, you need to make a conscious decision to stick with your company; whichever one it happens to be. You need to understand that you are running a marathon not a sprint and mentally prepare yourself for what lies ahead.
Think back to when you first joined your company and how excited you were. Perhaps you were in a room full of people who were making money and the energy in the room was exhilarating and you bought into that excitement. However, now, sitting by yourself, you may second guess the decision you made. This is where your Why becomes so important. This will be explained in the next video. Questioning yourself is human nature. Don’t beat yourself up for it.
Not only have you made a commitment to your company but by viewing this video series you have made a commitment to your personal growth through our online training platform. Don’t quit on the training. Many people join companies, pay for training and never do anything with it. Don’t be one of those people.
There are 4 things you must do to be successful in network marketing:
The number one reason people fail at network marketing is they listen to what their peers and family are saying about what they are doing. You must stay with this company; you must believe that what you are doing is in your best interest. Anything less is unacceptable. Remember if it’s meant to be, it’s up to me.
Only you can make your dreams become a reality. In order to grow you have to be willing to change. In order to change you have to be willing to risk failure. Without risking failure you are unable to achieve success.
Taking yourself out of your comfort zone is something that causes moments of stress and most people resist. But once you start to see the desired results and realize that challenging yourself was the right thing to do, you realize that you are now ready to continue your growth. The only thing stopping your growth is YOU!
