Tapping Into Your Full Potential

Written by Lois R. Thompson

In online as well as off line marketing 97% ofrepparttar folks are failing. Why is that? For starters most people don't take their business seriously enough to develop and incorporaterepparttar 122589 necessary business building actions.

Many are working their businesses as if they were playing with their hobby. Success in any business venture requires goingrepparttar 122590 extra mile...reaching beyondrepparttar 122591 comfort zone.

In MLM and Affiliate Marketing, goingrepparttar 122592 extra mile requires going beyond attempting to satisfy our own personal needs, wants and desires, and reaches outside of self. It requires going that extra mile to focus on and helping others achieve their needs, wants and desires.

You'll note that successful MLM and Affiliate Marketers are takingrepparttar 122593 time and efforts to focus on their team. They are positioned to offer nurturing through leadership to their down-line. Here they teach by leading, which offers a personal example.

Sure, nurturing your down-line takes time and stretches you. But,repparttar 122594 upside is it will not only transform you but allrepparttar 122595 lives you are touch.

How can you do that?

* Have faith in your team * Encourage them * Show appreciation for them * Trust them and their judgments * Openly and honestly share with your team * Offer a system of support and training * Take responsibility when you make mistakes

Leadership calls you to be an example to your organization. It calls for taking time to get to knowrepparttar 122596 members of your team personally discovering what they need to effectively build their business, and offering acknowledgment for a job well done. It requires you to put your actions where your mouth is...actions speaks louder than words.

Stop for a moment and give this some thought. How many people do you know in who YOU see great potential laying dormant...just waiting to be discovered and developed? For example, you know a child who had tremendous abilities to succeed in a given area. What's needed is a caring adult (usually a parent) to identify that ability, bring it torepparttar 122597 child's attention in a way he/she can understand, then begin to consistently encourage that child's confidence inrepparttar 122598 development of that area. Before too long, Voila! that child is accomplishing great things.

"Doing What's Required To Succeed"

Written by Lois Thompson

This is an area in which I believe most people miss their opportunity for achieving success.

Your first requirement should be in identifying your passion. There a saying which goes: "the gifts and callings make room for themself". The same is true with your passion. Once you have identified your passion, it's amazing howrepparttar creativity, commitment and perseverance will being to flow.

Do you recallrepparttar 122588 musical 'Man of La Mancha'? Here Don Quixote urges all who will listen to "dreamrepparttar 122589 impossible dream". What is your dream, what sparks your passion? Your passion is really your destination, and your goals are your transportation.

What does identifying your passion have to do with all this. We'll take a look at that in a moment, but first.

* Sharpening your vision

Without a vision we perish, struggling aimlessly though life, with a sense of defeat and nagging unfulfillment. It is therefore important to develop a clear vision for your life. Again, what is your passion? What is it that stirs you from deep within?

Dig deep, find it and bring clarity to it.

* Establish a pattern for success

As we've learned goal setting is a key factor in our journey of success. Since goals range between long term and short term, you must learn how to distinguish betweenrepparttar 122590 both. Be honest and realistic aboutrepparttar 122591 amount of time and monetary cost associated with achieving your goals. Are your objectives worthy ofrepparttar 122592 temporary sacrifices? Only you can determine that.

The achievement of one's goals and dreams requires work. Are you willing to do due diligence? Many people blow it here. They set lofty goals, then they sit and wait for it to happy. Success doesn't happen that way. It calls for a definite plan, a timetable, discipline and perseverance.

* Commit to giving

The concept of Network Marketing is based onrepparttar 122593 principle of giving first. You'll find that when your goal is centered around giving intorepparttar 122594 lives of others it releases a fire to your passion and sustenance that enables you to remain unmovable during challenging time.

Here is a true story to demonstrate this concept.

In 1921, while working for Westinghouse in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, DeWitt Wallace was faced with some hard times. But he never loss sight of his passion. His goal and dream which was to publish a 'little magazine' as a Reader's Service. His concept of this service was to providerepparttar 122595 reader with condensed articles offering information of value, issued in a small pocket size publication thatrepparttar 122596 reader could have readily accessible. DeWitt set out on his mission with a clear vision, and a well thought out plan he set out for his accomplishment.

DeWitt, began contacting known publishers of his day, includingrepparttar 122597 well-known William Randolph Hearst. Mr. Hearst rejected DeWitt's concept. Being a man committed torepparttar 122598 conviction of his passion of 'helping other people', he forged forward in face ofrepparttar 122599 obstacles. He is quoted to have said: "I don't care if I made a penny, as long asrepparttar 122600 magazine servedrepparttar 122601 reader". What conviction? what passion?

With a sharpened vision, an established plan and an unwavering commitment to work forrepparttar 122602 good of others, DeWitt Wallace and his wife Lila moved confidently on to achieve their objective in 1922. It's amazing, but as they did itrepparttar 122603 way was made clear before them.
