You may have thought how some people are successful in MLM, how can you succeed in this industry, how you can do your MLM business part-time, when you are in full-time employment, how many millions of people you must know so that you can make millions..and probably so many other questions.
In this article, I would like to share a few golden principles that you can use in your MLM business.
Principle no. 1
BE OPEN MINDED means being open to new ideas and prove a high level of flexibility. It also means being tolerant, fair-minded and receptive as well as expressing just attitudes and actions. Patience and humility are other great qualities of open-minded people.
Principle no. 2
BE COACHABLE: MLM is a business of duplication. Your upline who already has been successful in your business will share their knowledge with you and what you have to do is to listen and do what they are telling you to do. You simply copy what they did before you.
Remember! MLM is all about leverage. You can leverage your time and increase the number of hours of work effort by sponsoring other people and earning a small income on their efforts.
J. Paul Getty once said:
“I’d rather have one percent of the efforts of 100 people than 100 percent of my own efforts.” This is a very basic concept and is the cornerstone of your MLM business. By helping the people you personally sponsor to sponsor others, you duplicate yourself. As this process continues, you create compound growth that can lead to hundreds or even thousands of people coming into your business.
You leverage your time by helping others be successful and earn an income from all their efforts.
Now, there are a few characteristics of coachability that you need to look for:
-learning innovative ways to grow your business
-accepting criticism without being defensive
-communicating openly about weak and strong points.
Being humble is key and will help you get far in your MLM business. Recognize your flaws and always remember you can be wrong!
BE A DREAMER AND DOER: Develop your dreams, goals, and objectives. Get a mental picture of your dream house, holiday, etc. From these dreams, develop your goals.
A dream is a big picture and your goals are steps that will get you to your dreams.
Don’t think you have to work with your muscles, but with your mind. Success like in every other industry is a state of mind. So to succeed in MLM you must be determined and focused. Work several hours every single week. I mean hard work, talking to people, giving presentations, going to social events, marketing yourself online. Remember you have to work smart and effectively.
Tip: Pencil down meetings with the new people you have met and get to know if you can do business together / help each other.
BE CONSISTENTLY PERSISTENT
“In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins..not through strength, but through persistence.”
How do you know you are persistent? You must first want something so much that it becomes an obsession…every day you think and dream about it and finally, you fall in love with your own idea/dream/ desire etc. You think about it every minute of the hour and at this point, persistence will automatically manifest in your life adventure.
Persistence is a unique mental strength that will win over rejections and numerous other obstacles.
You can listen to this song written by Bob Proctor and sang by Michele Blood about persistence.
