Belief, Skill, and Action – Week 18

If you’ve been in business for any length of time, you’ve probably heard of these 3 key elements of success. I want to briefly talk about the first two, then focus on the third element, which is action. Maybe you’ve worked on yourself regarding the first two, but if you’re not taking action, you won’t get very far. If you’re not moving forward in your business, then one or more of these elements need to be addressed.

It all starts with a decision. Make a decision now that you won’t accept mediocrity, debt, lack or whatever else you want less of in your life. Og Mandino, in his masterpiece, “The Greatest Salesman in the World” said in Scroll I to “decide today to begin a new life.” This can be done in a moment. It really IS up to you. Let the old negative way of thinking and failures of the past, stay in the past. Do not underestimate the power in making a firm decision and declaring that things WILL be different in your life.

In working your network marketing business, and doing it successfully, this is one of the skills you’re going to need to pay close attention to. If you learn this skill, it will save you many hours of frustration and wasted time in your business.

What is this skill? It’s learning how to properly identify and qualify prospects.┬áMost people in network marketing think that prospects are people whose name and number you have. A person is not a prospect unless they have a reason and they want to do something about it. If there is no reason, they are either a suspect or a possibility. If you’re going to be presenting your business to suspects and possibilities, then go ahead and put on a colorful little hat, ’cause you’re about to do a dog and pony show for the entertainment of the person you think is a prospect.

Duplication is Your Key to Success – Week 4

If you desire success in your network marketing business, you’ll need to consider a few crucial elements. First of all don’t worry, none of this is complicated. If you’ll follow some basic principles of success, you will see your business grow. There are 3 factors that you need to keep in mind that will determine where you are in 5 years: your skill set, your mindset & work ethic, and who you hang out with. The post entitled “Your DMP & OATS” is where you need to begin. You need to have these two elements in place before you begin your journey to success.

When someone wants to build a bridge, for example, a very detailed and specific blueprint is needed, or no bridge will be built (or one that you would want to drive across anyway). Make your DMP as crystal clear as you can. When you speak it out loud 3 times per day, it trains your subconscious mind that this is what needs to happen and forces are set in motion which lead to your desired results. Your OATS is your action plan to acquire your DMP. Continue reading “Duplication is Your Key to Success — Week 4”
