The most important part of being successful in MLM is your mindset. My expertise in NLP really helped me at the beginning of my journey because I knew that my behaviours and actions would derive from my mindset.
So what does that mean? OK, so let’s say you’ve just signed up and you’re working out who to tell about this great opportunity. Are you scared of making those calls, not quite sure what to say, worried about the questions you’ll get?
Take a look at your beliefs and be honest – are you really confident that you can get someone interested enough in the business to sign up and want to work with you? Or deep down is there a fear or belief that you’re just not good enough?
You see, all these deep seated beliefs and fears will come across in the conversations you have with potential business partners. Do you think they’ll say ‘yes’ to joining you if at some level they hear that?
Now think of a leader in your business – put yourself into their mindset. They’ve signed up hundreds of people and are financially free. Do you think in their minds they have any fears and doubts about telling people of this opportunity? Of course not! They have complete confidence in themselves. So when they speak to someone, that confidence comes through and the prospect will know this person is worth listening to.
This is what I learnt – be and act successful before it really happens. And you know what, it worked!
You see, what happens is that as you create that successful mindset, your actions and habits become those of a leader, you speak like a leader, you exude confidence and people want to work with you.
Would you rather work with an apologetic, insecure business partner or someone who has confidence, enthusiasm and the determination to succeed? That’s the difference in mindset between a newbie and an experienced leader. The beauty is, you don’t have to wait until you reach the top to be like that – quite the opposite, you’ll only reach the top if you act like a leader now!
So take a look at leaders you admire and start to emulate their attitudes, habits and behaviours. Know inside that you have what it takes to be as good as them.
