8) THOU SHALT STAND BEHIND THE SPOTLIGHT.
MLM Leaders know: You make Big Money from back of room. Do you understand that? Too many distributors get leadership and what we call "celebrityitis" mixed up. A lot of distributors become a celebrity when they get successful, and to detriment of their group. Leaders who build permanent downlines put recognition spotlight on their people then stand behind it, and stay there. Yes, Leaders do need to be visible to inspire, but Power lies in recognizing and celebrating every little attempt or success to encourage and build distributor's confidence in this business. Why? People will do more for recognition than money. That's MLM Leadership 101.
9) THOU SHALT CONSTRUCT, NOT CONSTRICT.
We at PassionFire believe in L.I.A.C.P. Principle. Leadership Is A Construction Project.
First, you must build you, and construct skills; attitudes, habits, and thinking you need to succeed in this business. Then you must construct your people, through all we have been talking about in this article. And then you construct your business. Most distributors constrict their business with a very limiting self-focus, and looking out for #1 attitude. The average distributor has a selfish focus. Leaders have a selfless focus. And that brings us to what we call "The Leadership Paradox". You must construct your business by building you first, downline second, and business third, but all at same time. If you understand what I just said, you are on your way to building a retirement vehicle.
10) THOU SHALT BUILD RELATIONSHIPS, NOT JUST DISTRIBUTORSHIPS.
What is Secret to building A Million-Dollar Distributorship? You build Million Dollar Relationships. Remember that it is easier to walk away from a business than a friend. Get to know your folks, especially your Leaders as people, not just a paycheck. Get to know their dreams, what is important to them, and especially what they value. Spend personal time with your leaders, and develop that bond. Visit their house, their workplace, "Their world", and make it a part of yours. And always, always, always put their interests ahead of yours. That will create amazing loyalty, which will create amazing motivation, which will create amazing paychecks. Get on a ship and sail on sea of relating, and when people discover you are truly interested in them; that is when your paycheck becomes truly interesting.
These are "Ten Commandments of Network Marketing MLM Leadership 2005."
I encourage you in this new Millennium to start engaging your business through eyes of a Leader, not just a distributor. The impact on your business will be enormous. And once you discover how journey of leadership will transform you in all aspects of your life, year 2000 will be for you without limits, barriers, or failure, and you will be on a one-way track to all success you ever dreamed of.
And that is what Network Marketing is supposed to be about…Unbridled, and unstoppable Success.
And Secret? Leadership!
