So what’s really holding you back from Network Marketing success? You’re attending every company event you can get to. You’re sharing your products and services and your business opportunity consistently, meeting new people every day, doing home parties. You’re devoting time to your education and investing in network marketing seminars and trainings. And you’ve scheduled time out of your already busy and hectic schedule to devote to daily personal development.
So why aren’t you seeing results?
One of two things are happening here.
First, if you are in fact doing all those things, all the income producing activities (also known in the profession as I.P.A.’s) the congratulations. You’re doing exactly what you need to grow a massive network marketing business and it’s only a matter of time before things reach the tipping point for you. So hold fast and keep going. It may not feel like you’re getting very much results but in reality, you’re growing and learning and improving our skills and that will inevitably lead to more tangible outcomes. You’re getting results, you just can’t see them yet.
The other thing that could be happening is that you’re not really doing all the things you know you should be doing. There’s no getting around it. If you’re consistently doing the things you need to be doing, then time is the only other factor left. This means you just have to hang in long enough to see success.
Ask yourself, “Am I really doing what I need to do?” Or do you find yourself making excuses, justifying your lack of results on circumstances you can’t control – no upline support, not enough time, don’t know enough people, not enough money, comp plan sucks, and on and on and on (we’ll tackle excuses in a future article).
The biggest barrier to your success in Network Marketing?
Again, ask yourself, “Am I REALLY doing what I need to do?” If your answer sounds anything like a variation of “Yes, but…” then you’re just making excuses. Either that or your flat out not being honest to yourself. Either way, the thing holding you back is YOU.
This is why we stress personal development so much in this profession. It’s the single thing that’s going to get you past being the only true roadblock to your success. The sooner you admit that you are what’s holding you back, the sooner you accept responsibility for where your business is (or isn’t), the sooner you’ll start moving forward towards the success you’ve dreamed of from the day you started your business.
