Detriment to Your Future Success

The Greatest Detriment to Your Future Success

When you think about things that could hinder your future success your mind probably goes 100 different directions. If you quit. If you fail. If you get burned out. If your company goes under. If you become uninterested.

Those are the types of things generally associated with failure. They definitely lead to future failure and not success but that’s not the kind of thing I’m talking about.

Complain

Are You Gonna Complain, or Are You Gonna Fish?!

I want to tell you a story. A story about complaining. Whether you’re in network marketing, traditional business, multilevel marketing, direct sales, affiliate marketing, internet marketing. Whatever type of industry you’re a part of, this story can apply to you.

Are you gonna complain, or are you gonna fish?

Inevitably in life, you’re going to come across people who complain about literally everything. They complain about their lives, their jobs, their kids, their house, their cars, their government. You name it, they’re probably complaining about it. The funny thing about people who complain all the time is that they never want to do anything to change it.

Lincoln on Leadership

Lessons from Lincoln on Leadership

I try to make it a point that even when I go on vacation I continue to develop myself personally.

This last time we went on vacation I made sure to take a couple of books with me so I could grow as I relaxed.

I ended up reading a very interesting book called, “Lincoln on Leadership: Executive Strategies for Tough Times,” by Donald Phillips. I love history and I’m passionate about personal development, so if I can combine the two then I’m set.

The book was all about the leaderships aspects in Lincoln’s life and presidency.

Creating Smart Goals

Creating SMART Goals

Goal setting is one of those skills that you need to pick up as you work your Network Marketing business. At least if you want to be successful. It seems like a waste of time at first but you quickly begin to see the power that goals can have on your business.

Without goals you are just wandering around aimlessly seeking the “holy grail” of financial freedom.

That being said, if you are going to create goals you need to be sure that you are creating SMART goals.

You may have heard this concept before but for those of you that haven’t, let me break it down for you.

S.M.A.R.T. stands for…

Levels of Success

Success: To Each His Own

Measuring success with your Network Marketing team can be a topic that contains some pretty muddy waters and can cause some friction between distributors. Let’s clear all of that up today.

One thing you need to keep in mind when you are building your business is that the definition of success looks differently depending on who you are talking to. You need to have conversations with your new distributors and find out exactly what success looks like to them. Maybe they just want to make enough money every month to pay their phone bill, pay down their student loan, or buy a new car. Maybe they do not desire “financial freedom” as soon as they first get started.

Teaching from Your Study

Teach From the Overflow of Your Study

Have you ever been to a training or an event that had a speaker with  some pretty good content but for whatever reason they were the most boring person in the world to listen to. Either their voice was too monotone or they were just reading off the page? I think most of us can say that this has happened to us before. Of course it takes practice to be a good public speaker but if the person is at front of the room it is usually because they know what they are talking about so they should be able to present fairly well.
