Whether you're breeding bird dogs, or race horses, or drafting college football players to play in NFL...it's important to develop "markers" that can be very useful in predicting success. From my offline, traditional, business experience I have known this from get-go, but for some reason I was slow to learn (or, was it re-learn?) that identifying people with a high likelihood of success is even more important when developing an online network marketing business that depends upon teamwork.
Reflecting back on many of truly successful people I have worked with in network marketing, I made a list of numerous success factors that emerged when I assessed each person individually. After compiling list, three factors seemed to stand out as being most common success indicators. In no particular order, these factors were:
*approaching business with a long term perspective. It takes a lot of time to become an "overnight success"
*exhibiting tenacity of a pit bull
*being able to ride emotional roller coaster (two steps forward and one step back) in early stages of developing business
Just because a person has these characteristics, it does not ensure success and, on flip side, a person is not necessarily doomed to failure just because he or she does not possess them all.
