Are you one of the millions of distributors who jump online to find ways to grow their Network Marketing business? It is so easy to get all caught up in the How To’s of growing a big business, but in actuality, most of your success depends on your mindset, and a great deal of that depends on knowing and being comfortable with who you are. Network Marketing is one industry where you will find that if you are your TRUE authentic self you will attract more success to you. If you have a need for approval, then: 1- you won’t have much success, and 2- the Law of Attraction, which says that like attracts like, says you will attract to you other people with a need for approval and those who want others to like them. If you feel “less than” others, you will attract those persons as well.
When you signed up in Network Marketing you probably had no idea that most of your weaknesses would be exposed, but if you if you face them and overcome them, you can have unbelievable growth both personally and in your business. Rarely do people know from the start of a career in Network Marketing that their true identities will be revealed.
I spent some time with my coach Jeffery Combs last week talking about the need for approval and the need to please other people. It is something I have been battling ever since I was a little girl. I didn’t know how bad it was until I came into this industry. We all have issues we have to deal with. You might be going through something else yourself. All I can say is, is that when you are dealing with your own issues as you are growing your business, face them head on. Do not turn around and go home the minute you start to face a challenge. This industry will show you what you are made of and you are stronger than you think. You have more talent than you realize and you have something to offer that no one else in the world has to offer. Don’t be afraid to be YOU!
Learn to be more authentic, real and true to yourself. Find out what it is that you truly want in life and be yourself. What do you like? What do you not like? When you know yourself better, you will do better in business and you will start having more success in your business life.
The Law of Attraction states that whatever energy we put out we will attract back to us, positive or negative. So if we put out there weakness, and a need for approval, and my business isn’t working, then that is what we will attract back to us. We’ll attract weak-minded people, people who need approval and others who are lacking. So to change that, you’ll need to change your way of thinking. Find out what it is that you like, from how you like your eggs cooked to the types of people you want to attract to your business. Do you want to attract leaders? Business builders? People who are self-confident? Outgoing? Laid back? People who are motivated? What types of qualities and characteristics are you looking for in business partners?
Really dig deep and see what you are made of. Work on personal growth and development every day- at least 20-30 minutes each day. Read books, listen to CDs, watch DVDs (see my post on recommended books). Follow other leaders who have gone before you and learn from them. Hire a professional coach. Find someone that resonates with you and can help you grow the way you want to. Just do something!
The more you develop yourself, the more you will realize who your true self is, and the more you will see the gifts and talents that God gave you to share with others. Use the Law of Attraction in your favor. Focus on what you do want in your life. Get over your need for approval or whatever your issues are and move on. People are waiting for you. Now get out there and get to work!
