How to Avoid Super Hero Syndrome in Network Marketing
Do you like the way you look in tights? Now, that sounds like a joke, and it kind of is, but I want you to think about Super Man, Super Woman, Super Hero syndrome and think about whether you might be suffering from it.
This typically happens once you have a team growing and you have some momentum going!
Do you think you can save the world in Network Marketing?
Do you try to do it all?
Do you feel responsible for the success of everyone on your team? And, do you take on the responsibility of their failures?
Let people know in that very first phone call you have with them once they have joined that THEY are the ones responsible for their own success or failure.
Congratulate them on making a decision and joining the team, and you will be there to be their best cheerleader, but success or failure is based solely on their actions in their own business.
Be clear right up front.
You can’t motivate another to work the business, you can only inspire.
You can, however, sell people into joining. That’s called a “paid no!” But “joining” is not the same as building.
I made some big mistakes in my early network marketing career by running meetings and thinking I was the only one who could do a presentation “the right way!” We created a team where others thought they were not capable of doing the business themselves.
Spend time where it is earned…where it is deserved…with the ones who are actually building a business. Doing the daily action steps.
Remember, it’s okay to set boundaries around your business and your time. Don’t fear that others will quit if you are not there at their beck and call. True builders are doing this for themselves and by themselves. Your role really doesn’t have a lot to do with anything!
1. Determine if there are places in your business where you have adopted super hero syndrome? Taking on too much responsibility and feeling like you need to motivate?
2. Are you spending time with those who earn it?
3. Build a business that reflects YOUR values and creates a lifestyle you love.
