Ever have times when you know what you should be doing but you just don’t feel like it? You know what I mean. You are building your network marketing business and you really want it to be successful but after a while of working, you just find yourself spinning your wheels and not getting things done. Lately I have been finding myself in that situation.
It’s not a new feeling for me. I have been building my business with my primary network marketing company for 14 years. Every now and again I have a momentary downtime. If this has happened to you, know that it is normal to experience this but you can’t let it go on very long.
We all experience times like that. Not only for the new distributor but experienced ones as well. It can be really tough when you are trying to make make a transition or going through a growth stage. Sometimes it can be overwhelming when you are learning something new and trying to change yourself for the better. This is something that even we experienced network marketers go through. As a professional network marketer, we are always taking training and always growing. Sometimes change can be scary. Sometimes? Let’s face it! Change IS scary!
New distributors often experience a downtime about a month after they get started with their business. The first month is full of excitement and hope. Your mind is hopping with all the possibilities. Then after a while the newness wears off and the realization sets in – I’m going to have to work at this and keep myself making progress. New distributors can start feeling stressed and overwhelmed with the changes and the things they need to do to build a successful business and they just throw their hands up in frustration and quit.
Please DON’T DO THAT! It is well worth going through the uncomfortable feelings to get to the other side.
As I said before change is scary. There will always be change. You try a certain type of marketing technique for a while and see that it either creates lots of leads and new distributors or nothing. Either way, you have to adjust to deal with the situation. If you have lots of leads and new distributors, you need to help them get going. If the marketing technique brought nothing, you need to adjust.
Some of the changes we experience have to do with emotional stuff. We may have some fear of allowing too much income or too large a group. What kind of leader will I be to a really large group? These can be really scary issues that you have to look square in the eye and stare down your fears. I speak from experience. In the beginning I was terrified of being a leader. That fear still rears its ugly head occasionally. I faced it before and I will do it again and YOU CAN TOO!
Every time I find myself in that stuck place where my wheels are spinning it has been because I am in the process of making a major shift of growth. That’s a good thing but I need a swift kick in the pants.
One thing I recommend when you get to that place is to really think about your WHY. Why do you want to build this business. Don’t just say you want money. Why do you want more money.
For me, it was freedom. Freedom from having to work crappy low paying jobs just to keep the lights on and a roof over our heads. Not even doing a very good job at that. I wanted free of that. How can you have enjoyment of your life when you are working you tushie off and not getting anywhere. My husband was on salary so they made sure he worked an obscene schedule so they got every ounce out of him they could. He was so exhausted there was no energy left for anything fun. Just rest up for the next 14 hour day.
I was able to get freedom, first for myself, then a few years later my husband joined me. Today my WHY has more to do with helping more people experience the freedom I have been able to have.
I have to admit, I still need an occasional kick in the pants. Don’t we all from time to time? 😉
