Today’s Network Marketing question is….
I am trying so hard to make my Network Marketing business a success. I work full time, I have a new born and another child and am trying to make this work. How much work does it take, really? My sponsor made it sound like it was going to be a walk in the park.
- Let me start with the stories of others.
There are boundless stories of doctors, lawyers, pharmacists and others who were working 80 hours and managed to get focused, get in action and get themselves out of that position within 5 years. Those 5 years are going to go by, regardless.
How much work does it really take? It depends on your past and your mindset.
Let’s start with your past and your center of influence. How do others perceive you? Have you been there, kept your word, been kind, helpful, good friend and such? Then your center of influence with others will be stronger.
Again, how much work does it really take? A LOT! A whole whole lot. and success in anything does.
You’ll want to quit a thousand times and it probably will take 100 times more work than you think.
So, you have to tell yourself that right now – it’s going to take work, and you have to understand that.
You have a choice – choose the pain of putting massive work into something or choose the pain of going into the tunnel, and working hard to reap the rewards that this business can provide you.
When people ask how hard it’s going to be, I usually know that they are unprepared for the realities of succeeding in anything of their own, and are kind of looking for the easy road.
There really isn’t one. I don’t care what you want to do – there is no easy way.
The beauty of network marketing is that you can quit any time you want; the bad side is that you can quit whenever you want.
In the beginning, you have to give up some family time. And that hurts. I know, I’ve been there. I’ve had family mad at me. But today, thanks to that, I can make any day and any time – family time. I can drop everything to be with my mom when she needs me.
I can go to all of my daughters’ college family events and fun events. Get agreement with your family and run for a season.
Define what that season is and be up front with everyone. Give yourself a reasonable time table – not 6 weeks, but more like a year or two.
Then, get busy and make no excuses. Poor yourself fully into it.
Habits create results. Being IN a business is not the same as WORKING a business.
Focus in your efforts and your habits. Your results will show up.
Stop wishing, hoping and start doing!
