Consistency Will Beat Motivation Every Time

Are you always motivated to work your home business?

Do you always feel like doing the work?

When you are not feeling motivated, do you start to slack?

Most of us lose motivation quickly. I know in the past, I have started new things and I have been so excited, but the excitement fizzles out kind of quickly and I lose that excitement and in turn, lose interest in whatever project I was doing. Excitement fades.

Did you know that 90% of home businesses fail? Did you also know that statistically if you don’t start working your home business within 48 hours of signing up, you are much more likely to quit your first month?

Wow. Has this ever happened to you?  It sure has me. I fizzle out quickly.

What I have learned over the years in network marketing is that consistency is what will keep your business growing and keep you from quitting. Not motivation. Motivation and excitement can only go so far. They fade. But consistency in your home business, which means doing specific IPA’s (Income Producing Activities) every single day for your business, even when you don’t ‘feel’ like it, is what will keep you moving forward.

Below are 4 more short videos I did this week talking about IPA’s, going live on Facebook, consistency and getting to work in your home business. I hope they are helpful and give you a new vision for your business and for your future.

How To Get Through The Network Marketing Slump

So, I have been MIA for about 3 months. 3 months of inconsistency in my business. 3 months of making excuses as to why I wasn’t doing everything I needed to in my business. 3 months of my business going downhill.

That’s why I’m writing this post today. Time got away from me and I lost consistency in my business and it shows. I’ve still been working my business but slacking on a few things and that stops now. I absolutely know consistency is the number one key to success in a home business, but I let other things take precedence and I let time get away from me.

So, I thought maybe someone else needs to hear this and know that it’s OK to get off track as long as you don’t stay off track and how to get yourself back on track after you have derailed a bit.

Listen to the video above to find out about my upcoming online immune support class to help keep the kids well this school season.

Today I have 3 quick things I want to say about getting back on track.

  1. Make a decision. Decision is powerful. It’s half of success. It all comes down to a decision. You have to do some soul searching and ask yourself what is truly important. Is your business important enough to make time for it? Is the time and money freedom, which is why most of us start in the first place, is that worth it? Is helping other people by sharing what you do with them, either the products or the business opportunity, is what it could do for their families, is that worth it? If the answer is yes like it is for me, then just make the decision that you will immediately get back on track and start forward movement again.
  2. Make a schedule. Those who fail to plan, plan to fail. So get a plan, write it down. If you need to schedule everything you do to make sure you get your daily IPA’s (income producing activities) done, then do that.
  3. Do things that keep you accountable. Like this video and blog post. I am telling all of you that I have been off track, but I am back on track now. It’s OK to get off track, but it’s not OK to stay there. I made the decision, I made my schedule and now I’m doing the work. Do the work. Do it unmotivated. Do it afraid. Do it when you don’t want to.

To your success,

How to Get Unstuck and Start Moving Forward in Your Home Business

What to do to get unstuck in your home business.

Are you frozen in place in your home business? Do you not really know where to start or what to do, so therefore, you do nothing?

I’ve been there many times over the years. And I can tell you that the only thing that gets you out of that funk is action and consistency. You will go through periods in your home business where you lose motivation, you get stuck, you lose sight of your vision or you simply just don’t want to do the work. Sometimes it gets overwhelming, sometimes it even gets boring, and sometimes you just get burnt out, and sometimes you just get discouraged..

So how do you move forward when you are going through these times? I have 4 things that have helped me, and I hope will help you too.

  1. The first and most important step is never give up. If you are in a funk, don’t quit. Even when you feel like quitting and like nothing is happening in your business, don’t quit and don’t jump to another business over and over again. The grass is not always greener.
  1. Do at least one thing a day to grow your business. If you are unmotivated or burnt out or whatever, you can still make yourself do one thing that will move your business forward. This could be a social media post, a blog post, a FB live, a phone call to one prospect, a follow up with someone you’ve already prospected or something similar. Just do something.
  1. Write down goals. This is so important. You have to have something to aim at. So write down a couple goals for this week, for this month and for the year. You need to set goals if you plan to succeed in your home business. You succeed by planning to succeed.
  1. Listen to or read personal development daily. This is the best way to get out of a funk, to get motivation and belief back and to get yourself headed back in the right direction. You can read a chapter, or listen to a CD, or get Audible and purchase some audio books. All are great options and putting the right information into your mind is so important to belief, motivation, vision and purpose.

So if you are unmotivated and stuck, here is a bonus tip. Decision. Make the decision. It’s seriously that simple most of the time. Make a decision to get back to work. Make a decision to succeed. Success happens when people like you and me decide that enough is enough and that failure is not an option. Keep going. Don’t let this year pass you by without going for it with everything you have.

If you are not in a home business, or maybe you are looking for a new home, you can see what I do at www.healthandfamily.us to see if what I do is a good fit for you.

To your success,

How Posture Can Help You Succeed In Your Home Business

In Network Marketing, posture is a big part of what stands between your success or failure. A few days ago we talked about not being emotionally attached to the outcome of whether or not the prospect says yes or no. Well, posture and not being attached to the outcome really go hand in hand. You have to master both of these to have the best chance of success in your home business.

So what does it mean to have posture?

It means you are unshakable. The inability to be discouraged or swayed. It means that you have a solid belief in what you are doing and you don’t shake in your shoes and collapse when someone says something negative or someone doesn’t believe in what you are doing. You just move on. To succeed, you need to believe it regardless of what others think, and you need to stand firm on that belief.

So how do you do that?

Well first of all, it takes time. It takes dedication and consistency. It takes personal growth training and lots of it. My favorite for building posture is industry trainer, Dani Johnson. You can do a free 30 day bootcamp at smarternetworker.com that is amazing and will teach you posture and so much more.

Posture is something you learn over time through personal development, but until then, sometimes you just got to put it on like you do your pants. Before you go out there and prospect people, just make a decision that you will not break under the pressure of some idiot who calls it a scam, or says “those things never work”, or “you’ll never make money doing that”. You have to posture yourself to a place of pure belief so that when you hear those things, not if, when, you will not crack, but you will stay strong in the belief of what you are doing.

Don’t let those people kill your dreams in this industry that can absolutely change your life and the life of your family. Put on some posture and don’t crack.

A professional network marketer will not apologize or defend their position or opportunity. Never defend. Just understand that it’s not for everyone and move on and just say thank you. Defending shows desperation. Never get into a place of arguing and convincing. It makes you look weak, and makes you look desperate.

Professionals never try to convince or defend. They simply introduce what they do, ask if the person is open to learning. If the person says no, they move on. Don’t get into a battle because you will lose. It’s not worth it.

Not allowing yourself to be affected by the outcome, being yourself, having enthusiasm and passion, and having unshakeable posture will take time to build. But it comes through practice, practice and more practice.

You won’t get it right all the time, especially at first, but you build your posture through practice and personal development training, such as the training I mentioned before at smarternetworker.com, This will get you to a professional level if you don’t quit and don’t let the negative opinions kill your belief.

Comfort zones are comfortable but you don’t get very far if you stay in them. So get outside of your comfort zone today, work on building your posture, and believe that it’s worth it and never give up. That’s how you make it in network marketing.

If you are not currently in a home business or are looking for a team to join, I would love to share with you what I do so that we can see if it’s a fit for you. Email me at geneanroberts.com or visit http://www.healthandfamily.us.

How to Use the Power of the Curiosity Post to Get Leads

The power of the curiosity post.

So most of you who follow my videos on Facebook know that I completely believe in branding yourself and not your company. Posting your business and products all over Facebook is spam and makes you look like an amateur. Amateurs push products, professionals provide value and a solution for people.

So last night, I posted a curiosity post of sorts on Facebook. I make my own healthy toxin free face lotion, as well as other products and we have completely swapped out almost everything in our home over the past year for natural safe toxic free products.

Last night I posted this on my Facebook profile.

“My DIY Easy Healthy Homemade Face Lotion without the toxic chemicals.

If you are using store bought (neutrogena, noczema, etc) please know that those lotions and cremes are putting toxins into your body every time you put them on, many which are carcinogenic (cancer causing).

Every product you swap out for a natural one is one less chemical you are killing your body with each day. Know better. Do better. 

I’m so glad we made the switch to natural products over a year ago.”

Now, was I doing this to try to trick people into buying what I have to offer? No. Of course not. I did this to help people see that there are healthier options and to provide value.

Since posting, I’ve had over 30 people so far ask for the recipe. 

I sent the recipe by Messenger only, because I never give the name of my products away on social media, only that I am in health and wellness.  When I sent the messages to each, I began to ask questions like “have you ever made your own lotion”, or “how long have you been into more natural products”. Things like that to see if they have a need for what I have.

Then I simply asked if they would be open to learning more about how we were able to swap out all the bad products for healthy safe products.  Most said yes.

So at that point I directed them to my link. I did not blast a link in the first message with the recipe. I did not pressure or push or tell them how they should buy anything. No, I simply asked a couple questions, found out if they had a need and then asked if they were open to learning more.

If they weren’t, no big deal. If they were I sent the info. Super simple. It’s not spamming or pressuring. And you’re giving people value.

That’s a much better way to get people interested in your product, service or opportunity than doing a sales pitch all over your Facebook page and pushing products on people.

To your success,

Genean Roberts
