If you want to be successful at
I know that you have a burning desire to succeed because you are reading this article. And because you do want to succeed, it is time to start thinking of yourself as the professional that every one of your prospects will expect you to be. The sooner you start thinking of yourself as a professional doing professional things, the sooner you will become one.
As a professional network marketer – a heavy-hitter in the making – you are a leader, an entrepreneur, someone who believes in what you are doing. A leader is a self-starter, not someone who sits around waiting for his or her upline to do the work. A leader takes responsibility for his or her own success. They don’t blame their sponsor or the program when they fail.
There are thousands of very successful people in this business who had very poor sponsors, and yet they are making thousands of dollars a month! (And you can count me as one of those). An
It is also very evident in the programs they choose to promote. If you are concerned about the well-being of the prospects you bring into this business, you won’t offer them scams or get-rich-quick schemes. You will offer programs that they can be proud of, that will offer them an income for many years to come!
A leader is self-confident and enjoys what they are doing. A leader is someone who knows their own strengths and how to take advantage of them, their weaknesses and how to compensate. A leader is a continual learner as well as being a teacher.
Leaders don’t wait for some guru to take them to the Promised Land. They get the best map they can find, prepare themselves for the journey, and start out a step at a time.
And they keep going, even when it gets rough or they have to make adjustments to their route. I am convinced that most people can become a leader by simply deciding to be one! Once you make the decision, you’ll start doing the work it requires.
It’s no accident that some of the most successful network marketers were first managers or professionals in other fields. They already have the background knowledge of how successful businesses are run. They already know how to be leaders, and they bring this with them.
Most of these people also understand the kind of ongoing investment required to make a business work. They joined this industry because they wanted to keep the profits they produced, rather than giving them back to their boss or corporation.
These are the very people who can make the most difference in your downline, the kind of prospects who can cause a literal recruiting explosion and make you a lot of money! If you want to attract this kind of prospect, you must first be a professional yourself, not someone playing a money game!
These people know how to ask the right questions when evaluating a business opportunity, and they will expect a lot out of you as a business partner. If you can deliver, you will profit greatly.
I challenge you right now to start thinking of yourself as the leader you aspire to be. You are a professional in a wonderful industry with a lot to offer, particularly in this era of layoffs and downsizing.
You have financial freedom, security, and a more “people friendly” lifestyle to offer. You provide a life-enhancing service that is needed by a lot of people, just as surely as a doctor, lawyer, accountant, engineer, or computer programmer offers a needed service.
And unlike these other professionals, your service can truly change the lives of those you work with in some very profound and lasting ways! Be proud of what you do and what you have to offer!
The network marketing industry is in great need of professionals who operate their businesses with integrity. The “money gamers,” the scam artists, and those who go through the revolving door give us all a bad name and make our work harder.
By becoming the leader you were meant to be, you will not only make a lot more money. But you’ll also be doing your part to preserve the industry that can earn you a terrific living!
