You either have or are thinking about a Network Marketing Business. It’s different than business as usual, and you need courage to wade through all the other ‘stuff’ out there to make your presence known.
Here are 7 steps for you to gain more courage as you forge ahead!
- Believe in yourself!
You’ve got to believe in yourself! This is key and where everything starts. It’s hard to succeed without belief in yourself.
It truly is an act of faith! Faith that knowing you can do what you want to do and that you will succeed. It is the internal force that manifests in actions of super abilities on the outside!
You are then in a position to help others!
2. Believe in the value of what you have to offer!
Believe in the value of what YOU have to offer! You need to believe in your product or service, otherwise people will feel your unbelief.
You need to be ready to invest in it, stand behind it and shout it to the world! If you can’t do that you might need to look into another company that you can promote in this way.
Usually a good Network Marketing company will have training on the products and services they provide. You can take advantage of as many as you feel you need. In the past 7 years I’ve been involved with my company, I’ve done numerous training, webinars and classes on and off line. I’ve even become certified in two areas. All of this helps me to have answers for you when you ask, or helps me to know where to go when I need answers!
3. You need to be knowledgeable about the profession of Network Marketing.
Along with believing in the value of your product or service, you need to be knowledgeable about the profession of Network Marketing. It’s not a job or a business, it is a profession and within that profession you have your business!
Many people just don’t consider it because of all the negative rap, or because they just don’t know where to start! As I mentioned above, a good Network Marketing company will have training available for their products and services but not so much information about HOW to build it!
You need to equip yourself to succeed, gain experience, get training and education.
That’s where Attraction Marketing comes in!
My business had become stagnant and I just didn’t know what to do about it. I knew that some people were using social media, and I tried it for a bit, but it was more like spamming! When my business associate, Kerrie, told me about Attraction Marketing, I felt like it was the answer to what I needed: a way to find people that were interested in what I had so I didn’t have to chase down my family and friends any longer! Now I’ve learned how to use Facebook to attract people to me that already love Network Marketing!
4. Conquer your negative inner voice!
Most people have two inner voices they listen to:
- the voice of reason that is encouraging and…
- the voice of criticism that says you can’t do it and will fail
Which voice do you listen to? If you have a habit of listening to voice #2, you need to start being aware of what you say to yourself. Print out or record affirmations that will reinforce what you need to say to yourself. It will take awhile but little by little, you will become more positive about your self talk. Conquer your inner critic!
5. Prepare thoroughly!
You need to be organized to run your business. You need to take care of: who, what, when, how, where and which! When you are prepared you are much more confident, and you will be able to use your time more efficiently!
How do you do this? Your calendar will be your best friend, especially if you are one of those people who usually fly by the seat of your pants!
Try scheduling out the priorities in your private life that are not optional like family, work and personal appointments. Then schedule your marketing work times and appointments in the slots that remain. Stick to your calendar and you will be surprised at how things get accomplished!
6. Be yourself!
Ha! Sometimes this is who I am! Give yourself the freedom to be who you genuinely are! Your followers will be drawn to the real you. Be open and honest about your struggles and accomplishments; that’s what makes you real, and your people will love you for it!
Stay true to your unique YOU!
7. Stay away from negative people!
There are some situations you may have to deal with negative people, like family members or co-workers. For the most part, you don’t have to spend lots of time with people who drag you down. You may need to upgrade your friends to a more positive group. It will help you stay positive.
Some people are just too toxic, and it will make you toxic when you are with them often.
Say good bye to toxic people and situations. They will poison your spirit and pull you down, create fear, undermine your efforts, drain your energy and leave you with an ‘I can’t do it’ attitude.
Instead, surround yourself with people who make you come alive, keep you creative and give you the support you need to navigate through your life!
All of these steps will help you gain the courage you need to tackle your Network Marketing business. After all the definition of courage is: to be bold and brave and face tough challenges and act without fear of failure!
