WAY 3 - "Now it's your turn"
Network marketers in matrix-plan systems are most likely to fall prey to this suicide move. It's common in these type of plans to hear magic words "All you need to do is recruit three".
In reality, however, this is rarely case. Every network marketer in matrix, breakaway or other plans need to know that they will have to sponsor or recruit many people personally before success is within a stone's throw. Relying on others to "do their job" is a utopian idea that will not work.
WAY 4- "I'll take 2 months off"
Consistency is key to getting great results in anything we do. Professional soccer players know that even one week off can cause a drop in their fitness levels.
When it comes to marketing your MLM opportunity, think of it as a pipeline, draining water from a well 20 feet underground. When you shut this pipeline, it soon dries up, and you'll need to start all over again from bottom next time you want to take a sip.
Lack of consistency may not kill your business fast, but it's one good way of gicing it a slow death. Small, consistent advertising is much better than irregular, hit-and-run tactics.
WAY 5 - "Let me do it for you"
Jim Rohn, America's foremost business philosopher, probably said it best:
"You can help a thousand, but you cannot carry three on your back. You have to learn to help those who deserve, not those who need"
Perhaps every network marketer, at some point, is guilty of this, especially when it comes to family members and friends who join their opportunity. I know that I am guilty of being delivery boy, chauffeur and clerk in my first year in network marketing. I have, at one point of time, tried to baby-sit my team members.
All I learned is that you simply cannot drag someone across finish line. If you attempt to, you will drag yourself down into frustration and failure.
It's much better spending your time looking for people who deserve success, rather than helping those who simply refuse to give it what it takes.
Here's to your success. Cheers.
