I know exactly how you feel. I have been there more times than I want to admit. I have quit multiple businesses over the years because it got hard, it wasn’t working fast enough, and I felt alone much of the time with not much support from upline. If this is you, I am asking you not to quit.
I understand the frustrations, the fears, the doubt and the pain of working so hard and getting little to no results. I know that feeling well. I went through the growing pains of blaming my upline for not helping me enough. I blamed it on over-saturation, saying that the market was too full of whatever product or service I was selling at the time. I blamed it on my personality by saying I am just not a salesperson, I am not a people person, and I am not good with this kind of thing.
Over and over I was killing my own business with my own negativity and excuses. I was letting myself knock me out of my dreams and my family’s future. The answer friends, was me. I was the issue. I was the problem. Nothing else. Not the business, or the product or service. It was not my upline’s fault. I was simply unteachable and uncoachable. Is that you? If you are saying things like “I really don’t have the support I need” or “I’m just not good at this” then you aren’t getting what I am saying.
You have to get out of your own way if you want to succeed in business. You have to be willing to humble yourself, take responsibility for your own success, stop the blame game, and start learning new skills.
Lack of skill and my mindset was the problem. It wasn’t any of the previous businesses I have been in. It wasn’t my product, service or my upline. It was me and me alone. And until you get that, I mean really get it, success will continue to elude you.
3 Tips for getting over yourself and finally moving forward toward success:
- Research the ones who are crushing it and follow their lead. Discover what they are doing that works and repeat it. There is nothing new under the sun, friends. You reap what you sow. You attract who you are. Start becoming the person you would want to follow. Until you figure out who that is, follow in the footsteps of others and learn from them.
- Be consistent. You have to do the work EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. You cannot take weeks or months off from your business and expect it to grow. You cannot only work when you feel like it. You cannot depend on motivation to keep you going. You have to commit to being consistent. Make a list every morning of 3 things you need to do that day to move your business forward and do not go to bed until those 3 things have been completed. And never quit. If there are others in the same business making multiple 6 figures, then that is proof it can be done. Stay the course.
- Have enough people to talk to. Many people run through their warm market list and then just sit back and wait. Why are you waiting? Do you think people will just flock to you for no reason? It doesn’t work that way, but there are skills you can learn that will attract people to you if you follow directions and do it. Getting leads is not hard if you do it correctly, professionally, consistently, and without being spammy. Here is a great place to start generating leads the right way.
