This post is for you, whether you are just starting in business or still feeling your way around. We will give you a few key (and guaranteed) tips to help you get excited. They will help you get excited about your business in general and when talking to new people.
Because listen, we know all too well what it’s like to get started in the network marketing profession and then realize, oh no, we need to talk to people?! We’ve all been there. So, we hope you can take away some massive value from this post, share it with others and, more importantly, implement these tips TODAY.
Purpose & Intention will get you Excited.
Are you familiar with the term weak belief? In the simplest explanation, it means you’ve failed to attain or have lost belief in something. In this case, your business. Many people who do not see success start to lose belief. So, what we encourage people to do is;
- evaluate the markers of success
- determine how close they are to the ‘fire.’
- plug into events, calls, webinars, etc.
Once you know where you’re at, the rest gets easier. People often find that their marker of success was so far off being realistic at this stage. Or, they notice they have not connected with their leadership or been plugged into the culture in weeks! The moment we take inventory of ourselves, we often find the answers.
How are you showing up to your conversation or presentation with people?
GET EXCITED ABOUT TALKING TO PEOPLE
Think about what your Intention is for the conversation. For example, you might find that you go into a new discussion with the sole purpose of ‘signing someone up’ whereas, what if you just went into it to be a friend? Evaluate your expectations in your conversations with others — they should only be about the relationship.
You want to invest and go all-in with your relationships. Some people we spoke to years ago about our business decided to join us just recently. Why? Because we communicate and we listen.
When the time is suitable for the other party, it’s their time.
Understand that their time may never come, and you need to be OK with that.
Layered belief is a combination (or layer – hence the name) of growing belief. This is where people start to feel more excited. Perhaps they have a belief in being;
- A product of the products and,
- feel a sense of pride about the company, leadership, profession, etc.
It is here where things start to progress as a whole. In this stage, people find it easier to push through those moments of doubt or thoughts of giving up. Like an onion, layered belief holds merit in each one – they can work together and hold each other together when one layer start to slip.
Get Excited about other People
Celebrate them whether they’re in your company or not. Celebrating others elevates the profession, and advancing the career, elevates us! So that is something to be excited about.
The final thing we want to share with you is something that Eric Worre shared with us about ten years ago now.
The 1, 3, 5 and 7 Formula
The numbers signify years in the profession, and matched with those years are what you expect. Because listen, the expectation isn’t that you come into the profession and you’re all of a sudden this rockstar. Sure we’ve seen it happen but let’s go with the more practical side. Scenarios we have seen happen time and time again.
1 – Become proficient
3 – Taking your part-time income and turning it into a full-time income
5 – Bigger money (or whatever that looks like for you)
7 – Rockstar
Knowing this, does it change the mindset you may have been carrying around with you? That big ol’ heavy load of expectations and feeling less than accomplished?
Helping you get Excited
Picture your company as a school bus.
Inside, driving the bus — is you.
Your job on that bus is one thing; open the door and invite people on. However, it is not your decision who gets on or off. Apply this to your business. Your primary role is to invite people on it is up to them whether they take a seat and stay awhile (or not).
It is the simplicity where the magic happens.
Get excited about connecting with people and building relationships.
