Do you ever feel like there are times when you can’t seem to stay motivated to do what it takes to grow your business and reach your goals? We all have days like that but sometimes we can get stuck in a pattern of spinning our wheels and making no progress. This can happen even when you have learned all kinds of good ideas and information that, when applied, will help grow your business.
Whenever you find yourself stuck and spinning your wheels, it’s time to get refocused on your WHY. Knowing WHY you want to build this business is a powerful motivator. This is crucial to your success. If you don’t know why you want success in your network marketing business, you WILL NEVER have any success that amounts to anything.
Have you thought about your WHY? It needs to be strong and emotional.
If you have a goal to earn $5,000 or $10,000 a month, that is not a strong WHY. Stop and think about why you want that income. There needs to be an emotional reason that drives you to press on through the difficult times.
For me, I wanted FREEDOM. Freedom from working crappy jobs that I hated that did not even help us make ends meet. I wanted freedom from bill collectors calling. I wanted freedom from the pain of seeing things that needed repair around the house and not having money to take care of it. I wanted to be able to LOVE my life. I also wanted to retire my husband from the high stress job he hated. There has to be more than the drudgery of working crappy jobs, coming home so tired you go to sleep and start over again day after day.
Your WHY is needs to be strong enough to pull you through the rough spots and make you push yourself to do things when you don’t feel like doing them. Think about it every morning and throughout the day.
Here is an EFT that may be helpful in focusing on your WHY:
Remembering My WHY
Tap through all the points. It doesn’t really matter what points you tap. For this one, I will use Young Living’s Magnify Your Purpose oil. Put a couple drops of oil on your fingertips before you begin tapping through the points.
As you tap, focus on your WHY. Picture it in your mind, feel the emotion.
