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 weather, 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.
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 of 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.
