Network marketing is single greatest opportunity for people as individuals that has ever come along in history of world.
Either that or it's a complete waste of time, one of two.
The question of whether its a great opportunity or a waste of time, though, has to be answered on an individual basis.
We all know of people making a couple hundred thousand dollars a month through network marketing, and we all know a bunch of other people that are floundering around trying to figure whole thing out.
For one it's great opportunity, and for many others it's a waste of not only time, but money.
So what makes difference? Is it marketing strategies? Is it sales tactics? Is it just luck? What?
I believe it's none of those things. Marketing and sales can both be learned, and luck is merely by-product of effort and attention.
So what heck is it?
Network marketing does not require technical skills. It does not require advanced education, a lot of money, or any certain type of personality. We've all seen people weak in those areas that still made it big, and they are an inspiration to us all.
What it does require is us to overcome our fears, our disorganization, our lack of commitment, and our lack of effort, depending on which of those areas our weaknesses reside.
Networking does require people skills, and for many of us that's where our fears lie. We are often afraid to talk to those we don't know, or we are afraid of being rejected or ridiculed by those not interested. Often, too, we are afraid of speaking in front of crowds or being put on spot. I know many of you can relate to these fears, and in truth, so do I.
Yet, continual contacting of new people is VITAL to any network marketing business and we all know that. So, what must we do with these fears that we have?
We must overcome.
Disorganization is another factor that can kill your business faster than lightening. Failure to follow-up with people on time will cost us. Failing to have right piece of information available at right time because we can't find it will kill us. Not being prepared or there for our downline or prospects allows their needs and attention to go unmet and will also destroy our hopes for a bright future.
You and I could attend all training courses, seminars, and classes on organization we wanted to, and it still wouldn't do us a darn bit of good until day we finally decide to face up to our disorganization and do what?
Commitment and effort are not and cannot be come and go items, yet at times that's exactly how we treat them. We get all fired up, excited, and ready to go after watching a training video or motivational speech, and yet next morning we still do same things that didn't work for us day before.
