A common saying identifies three types of people in this world – those who watch things happen, those who wonder what happened, and those who make things happen. Successful network marketers fall into the last category.
Network Marketers are the difference makers, visionaries, and change agents. They strive to make the world a better place and inspire greatness.
So, how do they do all of these amazing things?
And, how can we ensure that we are doing them too?
Confront and embrace your fears.
All of the good things are on the other side – trust us.
And so, successful entrepreneurs have found a way to embrace their fear as a means of defeating it.
Successful network marketers get sleep
No one does anything well when they are exhausted. Whether you’d like to admit it or not, at some point, you have probably apologized for being snippy or lashing out at someone by saying, “Sorry, I’m just tired.”
This isn’t just an excuse that entrepreneurs fall back on to justify lousy behavior — sleep does affect one’s mood. More recently, when it comes to successful network marketers, studies have shown that sleep deprivation can lead to irritability and an inability to control one’s anger. Even partial sleep deprivation can significantly impact a person’s mood. Sleep matters – please don’t lose sight of that.
Realize that it’s OK to make mistakes
It’s essential for growth and development.
Learning from mistakes is still essential for anyone willing to stop, examine, and regroup from a major screw-up or a minor misstep. The key, however, is quickly working through the emotions linked to a mistake or the fear of making one.
It’s the emotions that mess us up. They can lead to false conclusions that we often hold on to as ultimate truths; “I don’t ever want to experience that again!” “I’ll never trust someone with my idea again.” And, if we’re not careful, we believe these conclusions prevent us from taking risks or accepting challenges that push us outside our comfort zones.
We teach ourselves to avoid the feelings linked to previous mistakes. In short, know that they’re going to happen and that it’s OK!
Make your bed, exercise, make a TO DO list and get it done. Self-disciplined entrepreneurs and successful network marketers are masters of their patience. They see the bigger picture and stick to the plan. They trust their efforts and believe in achieving big, being perseverant and persistent.
Your habits and routines may vary from the next person, but this doesn’t change that they exist. Take a look at your current patterns. If you work out of the home, what does your morning or evening time look like? If you work in the house, examine the habits you’ve created that are separate from personal and professional. Can’t find the distinction? Create one now.
The days we fall short in motivation are the days that self-discipline will save us.
Give to others
Research shows that true success and happiness come from helping others. So give to give, not to receive. Think about the last thing you did for someone else. Did you do it with the expectation of something in return?
Have you given a thought, a kind word or offered a gesture in hopes of it being reciprocated? How about the content you share online — do you give it all away intentionally and without the expectation of someone buying or joining you?
Your well-being will overflow when you consistently give to others. This will fill up your cup in many ways, allowing you to be even more abundant in your value.
Overall, successful entrepreneurs are no different from you or anyone else. They are people who have committed to good habits, decided to be all in and knew that the key to true success was by loving on others.
