Frustrated Network Marketer–When The Hill Grows

Life is full of ups and downs, achievements and disappointments, successes and failures, joys and sadness.  In life there are no easy paths that lead to a perfect life where all is bliss and happiness all the time.  Along the path of life there are obstacles you will encounter and decisions to be made.  Frustrated network marketer – when the hill grows into a mountain what will you do?

There will be times when life delivers us a new challenge and the hill becomes a mountain.  It will be up to us to decide whether we accept the challenge or walk away.  How we handle a challenge will determine whether we will be successful or fail. The key is in your decision. The choice is yours alone. If a path of failure and disappointment is chosen there is no one to blame but you.

I know a network marketer who has been up to the challenge a number of years now.  You see the network marketing company she is with is not in her country but to her that does not matter.  Yes there are challenges but because it is what she wanted to do so she chose the path of success.  The company was a perfect fit for her so she accepted the challenges that she knew would be difficult but the road to success was in her view.  To her the decision that if she could not build her business in her country she would build it in countries that the network company was in was a decision she HAD to make.  She is successful now and in the near future she will have achieved her goals and be living her dreams.  She is an inspiration to those that know her and will be so to many many more.

Recently two network companies merged and with the merger both companies have gained expertise that they were lacking and in fact the new entity has increased in strength and expertise.  A move that was beneficial to both companies and the distributors.  New products introduced which means a learning experience for those that have not been introduced to these products before  and different selling techniques.  One of the unfortunate turns of events is that the company is not in all the countries that the merging company was in creating  new challenges for some of the distributors in those countries.  But for those that seek to achieve their dreams and goals they will find a way around or over the mountain that has obstructed their path.

How we deal with these mountains will determine whether we need to take a different path or continue on the path we are on and face the new challenge.  We need to remember that we are business people and need to make  decisions based on a business point of view and not on an emotional one.  Emotions tend to cloud your vision and give way to negative emotions if the situation does not follow the path we had set.  Stephen R. Covey in his book “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective people” came upon a revelation and quoted it in his book.  “There is a gap or space between stimuli and response”.  The gap is the time you will have to make a decision to respond to the stimuli and the outcome will depend upon your decision.  Depending what the decision is, you will need to use the right criteria to make your decision and in business basing your decision upon an emotional response will lead down the path of negativity when in reality the situation you are cast into may be the best situation for you.

Frustrated Network Marketer–When The Hill Grows into that mountain that seems too high what will you do?  What will you do in that gap between stimuli and response?  I can only encourage you to make your decision based upon the right criteria and what is best for you.

MLM Frustration–Are You Getting Cooked in the Squat

ARE YOU GETTING COOKED IN THE SQUAT?  Are you still in the “getting ready to get ready to do something mode?” Wasting time, waiting on the biscuitsweather, the kids to get out of school or go back to school? BEFORE you know it  several months have gone by and YOU have not sponsored anyone; but you BLAME the system, wonder if you are in the right company, because “Big Johnny” over there in another company has already sponsored 5 people in to his business. You become  frustrated and begin to think about quitting or worse…quit.rearrange

Stop looking busy, color coding the paper clips and moving the paper clips from one side of your desk to the other, stop rearranging your office or your appointments to talk to your prospects. This is busy work and not slight edge thinking. 

Those who are still getting ready to get ready and are getting cooked in the squat because they can not bring themselves to move on any real business building activity. 

This is probably the biggest reason why people get frustrated and discouraged. We hear it all the time. “It’s not going fast enough!” First offrustrated baby all, your frustrations are real and you will always have them. But if YOU do not take a few easy action steps every day and perform those seemingly small insignificant, mundane tasks that compound over time, then you will be cooked in the squat and it will never move fast enough for you.  Your biscuit will never get cooked. 

In reality it is the person who is NOT working, not the system that is the problem.  Find out why your are frustrated and stuck in NOT doing anything to build your business.  Somewhere at some time you have to talk to people.  A skill that can be learned if YOU want to learn the skill. 

The greatest business leaders get frustrated from time to time. The key to success was  learning to manage their frustrations so they did not become paralyzed and quit. We all have EXPECTATIONS about the way we think it should happen. IF it does not meet our EXPECTATIONS, we get discouraged or frustrated and then quit.

There are many things that can get us frustrated:

  • Your good friend signs up and quits
  • You see other friends in other companies signing up prospects in droves
  • 3 people tell you they are ready to sign up and then they don’t ever sign on the dotted line
  • Your check is significantly less than you thought it would be
  • The demands on your time from family become so great, you can’t seem to find time to work your business
  • Your top distributor (or your only distributor) has a problem that causes them to get discouraged.

Does any of this sound like something you have been hearing either from yourself or from others?

LET GO of YOUR frustrations quickly and seek out the skills that can be learned from your frustration.  If your ready to stop this cycle and move into  times of triumph. Contact us and we will help you get on the right track.

Frustrated Network Marketer–Past Thoughts Have Created Your Present Circumstances

Have you ever wondered how you ever arrived in your present circumstances?  You even may have wondered why it always happens to you.  It may even seem unfair, when in fact it was your own thoughts that brought about your circumstances.  Frustrated Network Marketer–Past Thoughts Have Created Your Present Circumstances takes a look at why you are where you are today.

Napoleon Hill, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Richard Branson and many others who have success stories throughout history firmly believe that you become what you think as well as your circumstances come about through negative or positive thinking.  I know many people do not believe that their dominate thoughts control their circumstances and destiny in life.  It may seem this idea that your dominate thoughts can control or shape your circumstances seems far fetched.  I assure you, if you take the time to examine your situation you will discover the root of your circumstances were thought driven.

The universe, God or whatever higher power you believe in will generally give you what your dominate thoughts dwell on and translate it into reality.  Not always in the way you think because the higher power knows what is best for you.  The most successful people think positively and separate themselves from negatively thinking people. No! it does not mean they are snobbish but it does indicate they understand the damage negativity can cause to their dreams and desires in life.  You see people that think negatively, woe is me, spiral downward in life and business so very successful people stay away because negativity can be very damaging and contagious.  Does it mean successful people won’t hit bumps in the road?  No, but each time they get back on track and dwell on thoughts of success rather than on the bump in the road.  They learn from their mistakes and the bumps they have encountered and learn how to avoid them in the future.

There are many people today that live in a negative state when it comes to events in the future.  They think the worst and dwell upon those thoughts daily.  They continue down the path of “WOE IS ME” not realizing that they strongly emit negativity, about the situation that has not occurred yet, and brought their fear into reality.  There are certain personalities that analyze a situation or opportunity thinking the worst (sceptical) and unconsciously worry their worst fears into reality.  They overanalyze their situation and make decisions to avoid their perceivable catastrophe and live their life in this state.  Not only does their worst fears come true but they never take the chance on their dreams or desires and never reach full potential because the fear grew and they remained in the same state as before.  Never moving forward to achieve their life’s desires or dreams.

I have seen what happens to people who work the 9 to 5 job when the company announces cutbacks.  They begin to figure how much smaller  the pay check will be, direct negativity towards the company.  What they do not realize is their thought will bring about the reality they fear.  What is sad is the reality they fear may not have been theirs but because the universe is generous it gave them the reality based upon the thoughts they were dwelling upon.  Many of our negative thoughts are highly charged because negativity can produce deep emotions and we end up getting just what we feared most.  All brought into reality because of thought.

It is never easy to break a cycle that has been part f your life for many years.  Recognizing that you have this behaviour is the first step to moving forward towards a positive finish.  Instead of dwelling on the negative and the grim effects this may have, upon you and your family and lifestyle, direct your thoughts towards a positive solution so your dreams and aspirations have a chance to come alive.  The universe is also generous when we charge our dreams with positive thought which in turn brings about positive results.

I would recommend you take the time to read some books written by very successful people or the autobiographies written about them and learn how they thought, overcame obstacles and what they did to achieve their goals.  Also there are some great self development books you can read by Steven R Covey, Napoleon Hill and many others who can help direct your thoughts to a positive state with positive results.  By taking the time to read and ponder your present outlook on how you deal with life Frustrated Network Marketer–Past Thoughts Have Created Your Present Circumstances could be used to shape a positive future with success.  Let the universe give you something you really desire.
