stuckThere are times when we feel stuck. It’s a natural thing that we all seem to go through from time to time. It can happen in all kinds of areas where we want to make progress. For example, you want your network marketing business to grow so you know you should be making follow up phone calls, doing marketing and promotion, writing newsletters and blog posts.

Sometimes when building your business you can find yourself feeling stuck wondering which way to go. You have to figure out which ways to market and promote your business. Once you figure out those things, you need to use trial and error to test out what works for you. You may even find that you need to totally change directions. The thing is, you can’t change directions until you get moving. Think of driving a car. The car has to be moving before you can turn in any direction, whether a slight turn or a full turn.

The key to getting unstuck is to just start moving forward. Motivation never starts automatically. It kicks in once you get moving. Even if on some days the steps are small. Just take steps.

I love that quote by Joe Schroeder, “You don’t have to get it right, you just have to get it GOING!” The way to get anywhere is to start from where you are right now, learn and make adjustments as you go. If you don’t start moving towards your goals, you will stay eternally stuck. Even the smallest steps stir more steps forward.

An example used by writers is to just start writing. Don’t worry about what you are writing. Don’t over analyze. Just start pouring out words on a subject. Once you get the thoughts flowing, more ideas come to you.

The same applies to other things. Picking up the phone and calling someone when you are not in the mood can seem like an impossible task. Once you make that first phone call, the mood lifts and the next call gets easier. Exercise is another example. It can be hard to get off the couch and get an exercise session started but once you do, it is easy to keep going. I often trick myself by saying, “I’ll just do 5 minutes worth.” I always stay on for more.

EFT can be a really wonderful tool to help get motivated and get unstuck.

Here’s an EFT Script to help you get motivated:

Apply 1 – 3 drops of Motivation oil on your fingertips, then tap on the Karate Chop Point with the oiled up fingertips. As you are tapping the EFT Points, you will have enough remaining oil to carry to all the other points.

Even though I don’t know what to do , I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

Even though I’m stuck and don’t feel like doing anything, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

You can add something specific you need to do if you want.

EFT for Network Marketers

OH MY! Another day went by and I didn’t get that job done. Do you ever find yourself saying that? It’s amazing how fast time flies by. It’s so easy to get distracted with other things and let the important things slip by, especially things that make you feel a little uncomfortable. You can find yourself procrastinating and usually you don’t even realize why you are doing it.

As you are building your network marketing business, you have daily tasks, talking to people about your products or the business opportunity, emails and phone calls to make and to respond to. There are certain things that must be done if you want success. Sometimes you can find yourself doing busy work in the office but not things that actually grow your network marketing business.  This “busy work” is a form of procrastination.

Procrastination is actually one way we sabotage our success. Our subconscious subconscious resistance and fears get involved and we begin to sabotage our efforts, often by procrastinating.

There can be any number of reasons we might sabotage our success.  Here are a few common reasons for sabotage:

    Fear of change
    Fear of leadership
    Fear of responsibility
    Fear of discomfort in the spotlight
    Fear of being criticized
    Fear others will be jealous
    Safety issues

Sometimes we aren’t really sure why we are sabotaging our success with procrastination. EFT can be helpful in releasing some of our fears and getting the mood shifted to one that is taking action.

Try this EFT session for times when you find yourself procrastinating but you aren’t sure why.

 EFT Tapping Clip:
Releasing Sabotage by Procrastination

After you have done some EFT, here are some . . .

Tips to help with Procrastination:

1. Know WHY you are building this business and think about it every day. Then decide what you will do TODAY that will take you one step closer to your goal.

2. Make a list of the IMPORTANT things you want to accomplish today. I also have a tomorrow list that I start in the afternoon for the next day’s activities.

Some of the things on your list need to be things that will actually cause you to increase income – Getting people to your web site, putting marketing materials out, talking to prospects, etc.

3. Prioritize your list. Decide which things are most important on the list. Do those first. If you have something unpleasant to do, I recommend to get that over with first or early in the day. Everything else will be a breeze.

4. Big jobs can be broken down into parts. Part of your daily routine should be reading success books and training. I have several books I am in the process of reading. I read a bit from each every day. Even 15 minutes a day reading will be a positive step forward.

5. Make a plan and take action. Decide how much time you will spend each week on your business. Then plan what you will do during that time.

I recommend at a minimum of talking to at least two new prospects every day… that is 60 a month. If you recruit just 10%, you will have 6 new recruits personally sponsored every month.

You will never be perfect. You don’t have to get it perfect, you just have to get it going.

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? 😉

The past few days I have been having some emotional down time. Ever have those days? Normally I love working on my business and I tend to be a workaholic but there are those days when you just don’t feel like it. Sometimes you do need to take a break, but if you are serious about a successful network marketing business, you have to stir up some motivation to take ACTION and get going on some income producing activities.

We all have ups and downs in our life. Stressful times that make it more difficult than normal to find the motivation. I have been through the pits many times in my network marketing career with Young Living Essential Oils. These emotional down times can be very challenging. This is NOT the time to give up.

This is a time to do some EFT tapping to help get the motivation level UP! I often find myself resisting doing the EFT during stressful or emotional down times. That usually means there is some underlying reason my subconscious is putting the brakes on.

Oh, that reminds me. Did you know that you can do EFT to release resistance to doing EFT?
