Just what is the role of your upline and what can you expect from them. Many people believe that their upline is going to do all the work for them. Well I don’t think that is what your upline is for. Sure they are there for support and guidance, to point you to good skills training and such, but they can not learn the skills for you. YOU have to take the time to do that. You see success requires a commitment level. Maybe you only have an hour a day to work on your business and learning skills must be done in that hour as well.
If you have the commitment level then you will learn the skills yourself and not expect that your sponsor will tell you what to say or give you the condensed version of what you should say to your prospects.
Big Al speaks on “Upline Support” and gives this advice:
Most leaders are sponsored by someone who isn’t a leader.
Interesting, eh? That means that if we want to be a leader, chances are that we won’t have much upline support. If we do get any upline support, just consider that as a lucky break.
Also, if we don’t intend to be a leader, it probably doesn’t matter if we have upline support or not.
We have to ask ourselves, ‘What is it that I want my upline to do that I am unwilling to do myself?’
The answer is obvious. We should do the work ourselves.
It’s tough – but if we don’t take this viewpoint, here is what happens. If we mistakenly believe that our upline is necessary to build us into a leader, that means we also must hold the hands of our unmotivated distributors and do their work for them too.
Ouch! Not a pleasant picture.
So remember, most leaders are sponsored by someone who isn’t a leader. Becoming a leader is up to us.
If you want to avoid becoming the motivator, which is difficult to do since motivation comes from within not from an outside source; Someone else may INSPIRE you, but only you can motivate you, and a baby sitter, you will need duplicatable skills that will teach you and your team independence. Grow into a leader by learning more Leadership Skills.
If you are like the majority of Network Marketers, then you are always looking to learn new skills and obtain more knowledge for yourself or to pass along to your team.
