|You may have noticed that my website header says "Think, Learn and Serve your way to Network Marketing Success". This cycle is an upward spiral of business growth. Notice, too, that it is really a cycle. The more you think and learn, the more you can serve. The more you serve [and learn by serving], the more things you have to think about and to learn. It is ironic that the more you learn, the more you realize how much you don't know. Let's take a look at each element.
Everything we do starts with thought--either conscious or unconscious[autopilot]. Someone has said that "thinking is the hardest thing we do, so we avoid it at all cost". In our business it pays to really think about important things including:
Now that you have thought through these important life and business issues, let's assume you have selected an opportunity. So what do you need to learn? Guess what? You have to think about this too?
The first thing to learn is "what do I need to learn?" Some of these are:
Now that you know what you need to learn, you can start learning and building your business. As you build your group, there will be other things to learn in this continuing process. Thought must be given to what you need to learn and how to prioritize.
This is a running list that will continually be updated. You learn as you go and learn what you need to know when you need to know it.
WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! You don't have to know everything to start serving. This is called paralysis by analysis.
Network Marketing is a business of service to others. Really! The people who succeed big time provide massive value to their prospects, customers and distributors. Yes, even their prospects. Your ultimate goal may be to serve your family, serve God and do fun stuff with what you make in Network Marketing. That, in general terms, is a goal for all of us. Otherwise we wouldn't be in business. These results are possible when we first serve our prospects, customers and distributors. If we look at our business this way i.e. helping others, providing value, it is a lot easier to do.
So, what are some of the ways to serve?
Now you are off and running. To your massive success!
