Having the right mindset is the key to success in any business and this is achieved by being positive, prepared, yourself and a star networker.
A lot of times, we hear people complain that they don’t feel motivated enough to work or are not strong enough to handle the problems they face in their network marketing business. So, here we have listed a few points to change the way you think about that.
Remove all negative thoughts
Robert Kiyosaki, in his best selling book “Cash flow quadrant”, talks about the reasons why certain people are more successful than others. An important thing that you can do is to shunt all negative thoughts out of your mind and imagine the day you will be successful. Imagine all the things that have to happen for you to be successful. The basic psychological reason here is that your body can only do those things that you mentally imagine. Only then can you come up with different ways to achieve your target. If you are negative about what you want to achieve, you will only think about what will go wrong, thus wasting valuable time and energy on things that don’t really matter. Be positive and focus all your energy on things that you want to complete, things you want to achieve.
Be prepared for all challenges
Life is not easy. It is difficult and MLM businesses and MLM business plans are no exception. Nothing is easy in the beginning. A lot of times we see people who are not as talented or smart as we are, but they are more successful than we are. Why? Better planning can be one reason, but even the best plans can and will fail. Having the presence of mind to accept that is of utmost importance. No successful person ever got rich by having everything go as per his plan. Don’t get us wrong. Having a well defined plan and being able to stick to it and getting results as per it is the most important and desirable thing, but things will more often than not go wrong. Only when you are prepared to accept any result other than the one planned, can you really accept the facts and think of the next step.
The biggest mistake that a lot of good sponsors do is to assume that certain things cannot happen to them, but they do. When they face this situation, they are shocked and do not know how and what should be their next reaction or step. Composing themselves itself is a big task. In such cases, having a mentor or an experienced buddy to help you out is a huge advantage.
Be yourself – do not copy
This is one of the most important things that any individual must follow for anything he does in life. By trying to copy some successful sponsors/ distributors/MLM businesses etc., you are just another ‘me too’ in the market. By doing so you are telling your customers, colleagues, uplines and downlines that you actually do not have anything new to contribute and are not creative, but just someone looking for an easy way to make money by copying someone else. If copying someone else was what others were looking for, they would do it themselves! Your original ideas, thoughts, processes and products are what people are looking for and by copying others you are actually killing this part of you.
Just having MLM income calculators is not something that can be truly classified as a plan that can attract or retain sponsors/distributors. It is just another copycat technique to attract interest, but the plan actually repels people. Being original is the secret sauce of success. If you do not think about those original ideas that can make you stand out from day one, you are another dead fish flowing with the current.
Networking - Every dud knows a stud
Networking is the most important thing in an MLM business, even more important than the MLM commission calculator. Wanting to talk to more people out of compulsion is not a very pleasant thing that anyone would enjoy. But imagine if this is something that you enjoy doing. Having a positive mindset towards making new contacts lets you make the most of each minute that you speak to any individual. Whether he is interested by your MLM and network marketing solutions then becomes secondary as your charm and personality give you a friend and a well wisher.
By being in constant touch with people, you need not keep looking everywhere for new contacts as your charm can let people provide you all the leads and contacts that you need. Even if you feel that the person you just spoke to is not a very promising prospect, he will definitely know at least one person who can be a promising prospect.
At the end of the day it is all about believing in yourself! That is the only thing you need to keep in mind when starting your MLM business as where there is a will, there will always be a way.
