Are you being selfish?
It’s really easy to get wrapped up in the business, any business. As a solopreneur, it’s even easier. We become self focused and self centered. Our success in business depends on us. We are the business.
Unfortunately, we worry too much about ourselves. “What will people think of me?” “Will they say no, to me?” “Are they rejecting me?” The self doubt and questioning seems to be never ending.
You can’t build a network marketing business like that. I mean, there’s only so much rejection one can take before they quit.
While all of this is true. You are the business. It does depend on you, but you can not do it alone. You can’t buy your why to the top of any compensation plan. You can’t even sponsor your way to the top. You can sponsor 1,000 people and if they never do anything then you will go nowhere, in a hurry!
A network marketing business is all about cooperation and duplication. You need to sponsor enough people to have 5 or 6 that will be willing to find enough people to have 5 or 6 that will do the same thing.
I know that has to sound confusing, but I know you understand it!
When you first start out in business you have a certain number of prospects. It might be 1 or it could be hundreds, but you have some prospects. It is not your job to decide who is interested in joining you and your business. It is your job to go out and find out who would be interested. This isn’t about you! It is about the other person. They have wants, needs, desires and dreams too.
It is about teaching them that there is another way.
I heard a story, recently, about a young woman who was approached about a network marketing opportunity. She was skeptical about it. It all sounded great. Maybe a little too great. She asked her grandmother to go to the meeting with her. She didn’t want to feel pressured to sign up on the spot and thought having her grandmother there would help.
The two went to the meeting. It was over in about 45 minutes. The person who had invited the woman to see the business plan came over to them and asked them what they thought about it. The young woman started to talk, but the grandmother interrupted her. She said, “I wish someone had told me about this when I was younger. I had no idea that something like this existed. I thought I had to work for 40 years of my life in order to succeed.”
That’s a pretty heavy statement, isn’t it?
“I wish someone had told me.”
“I wish someone had told me.”
Think about that for a minute!
How many people are out there that wish that someone would tell them about network marketing? How many of your prospects are just waiting to be told about this business? It’s not about you!
It’s about teaching people that there is another way. Maybe it’s right for them and maybe it’s not. It’s not your job to make that decision for them! They need to decide for themselves.
Take your focus off of yourself and how everything impacts you. Go out and teach the people and let them decide!
