NO matter how long you have been in your network marketing business you will find times that you are being challenged. In fact, when you make a strong commitment to your business and say that you are going to “Go For It” you can be almost guaranteed that obstacles will show up in your path that will test you. Sometimes immediately! They will test your perseverance, refine you and define you and show you just how much you really want to succeed in your business.
Are you the type of person who will run away from your challenges or face them head on? The people who make it in this industry or any industry for that matter are the ones who will not back down from their challenges. In fact, successful people realize that these obstacles are just stepping stones to success. They know the challenges will help refine them to be the type of person they need to be to achieve their goals.
Be thankful for the challenges that you are presented with. Make sure you have a strong “WHY” for being in the business you are in, because the stronger the WHY, the more likely you will push through the challenges you face.
You will go through dry spells in your prospecting. Times when nobody is signing up and you might start to think that there is something wrong with you. You may even feel like quitting. The point where you most feel like quitting is quite possibly the VERY MOMENT for you to dig your feet more firmly in the sand and stand firm, and stand strong because you may be just inches from a turning point in your network marketing career.
There are many ingredients that will help you to be successful in this industry and I will go into more of them in future posts. But for today, just KNOW that when you decide you want to have success in network marketing, you will undoubtedly face challenges. These challenges will help define you and when you get through them, you will be much stronger, more confident and more able to connect with those people who’ve going through the same challenges.
The challenges might be with family, or relationships, people saying no to your opportunity, maybe your mindset isn’t right, a pet dies, your children struggle in school, people on your team quit, family members doubt you. The list goes on and on. It could be any number or combination of things. Life happens. How will you react?
You can overcome your obstacles and you’ll be able to help others who go through the same struggles. Your desire for success has to be stronger and bigger than any challenge you go through.
Be strong. Be determined. Focus on your goal in your business. Remember WHY you are in this business. Then focus like a laser on what you need to do to meet your goals.
