Why Is Defeating The Bully So Important To Your Business?

If you thought you left all those bullies behind you in middle school or high school, maybe you did, and maybe you didn’t. Perhaps the worst bullies are the ones that show up after our school lives have ended. So, what on earth do bullies have to do with your network marketing business or your life? Let me share some thoughts (and strategies) on this important topic. You just might be surprised. Enjoy.

Someone On Your Team Is Struggling With One Of These Three Issues

Last week I asked subscribers to respond to this question: “What are you struggling with right now, in your network marketing or direct selling business?” I’ve never had a greater outpouring of  responses (and emotions) to a blog. The number one category of replies took me by surprise a bit … I wonder if it will surprise you too. In this audio you can learn more about what some “network marketers are struggling  with right now” … but more importantly what we can all begin to do about it!

This Unique Approach Is A Powerful Game-Changer

I was cleaning out some old files recently to make room for the new-year when I came across a long-forgotten article. The subject was the “astonishing power” of making this ONE simple change in your mental frame of reference. It’s not that I’d never heard of the concept before, but what really caught my attention was the “author’s dare” to simply try “IT” in ANY single area of your life and to watch and see what happens. In this brief audio [3:40] I’ll share what IT is, what I tried first, and how you can use it to “elevate your game” when prospecting …or doing almost anything else in life.

The Most Fascinating Person That I Never Met …Yet

You are ABSOLUTELY going to want to meet this person too. I promise! Before I tell you who it is, I want you to know that I don’t wish to be one of those writers, authors or bloggers who suggest new year’s resolutions to you (annoying) or even worse, share all their personal resolutions with you (boring). But I came across my list of resolutions for 2013 and realized one of them REALLY bore fruit. Here’s all about The MOST fascinating person that I never met, in this short [2:24] audio.

Risking Yourself

It’s interesting to note that when most people think of taking risks, what they’re thinking of is risking money. But many of the risks people fail to take – and the possible rewards they miss – actually cost nothing. These risks are personal. We meet an energetic, upbeat service person while shopping and we fail to engage them. We’re afraid. We have a friend we believe could benefit from our product or opportunity and we’re worried about what they might think. We don’t make the call.

We don’t put ourselves “out there”.

In her book, Pathfinders, researcher Gail Sheehy revealed one of the more surprising common behaviors of “truly centered people.” These were people who enjoyed an enormous internal sense of accomplishment and well-being. What was the common behavior? They had pushed themselves to take personal risks!  Understand: Taking risks doesn’t always mean risking your money. Sometimes it simply means risking yourself a little.

Selling your product, service or opportunity involves taking personal risks. You can seem pushy. People may not return your calls. People are sometimes rude. You can be rejected. (Actually, what you offer will be rejected at times). Rejection can sting. You run the risk of feeling emotionally drained.

The late business philosopher, Jim Rohn, reported the most common emotion he uncovered when coaching unfulfilled people was a feeling of regret. The sense that they had somehow done less than they were capable of. And as they looked back on their lives they asked, “Why didn’t I just go for it?” The rewards, when you find a way to “push through” can be enormously positive – sometimes staggering.

Network marketing is simple; it’s mostly about creating conversations, developing relationships and helping people. Successful network marketers adopt and cultivate a “mindset.”  If I had to summarize what it is we really do in just a few words, I would offer this description: Make a friend. Meet their friends. Risk yourself!

Summarizing The Master Prospector’s Mindset

Have the true intention to help people. Be willing to take the lead in conversations. Have an external focus: “It’s not about me, it’s about you”. Fall in love with the right thing: People. Be “needs aware”. Listen more. Talk less. Ask questions.Sell what people are buying: Connectedness; Attention; Leadership; Empathy; Clarity.
