How to handle rejection in network marketing
If you’re the BEST closer in the world…
You’ll most likely close 1 out of every 3 prospects you present your opportunity to.
What does that mean?
It means you’re going to get rejected twice more than you’re going to get a “yes”.
Even the “best closers in the world” get rejected more often than they get the “yes”.
Now, as you can imagine, most people get rejected more often than every 2 out of 3 people (for some of us it’s more like 1 out of 10… or 1 out of 20!).
Because of this fact…
I want to let you in on a little secret.
A secret as to how to get PAID FOR “NO”.
Ready for it?
Re-wire your brain to handle rejection in network marketing.
Every time you get rejected, I want you to think “Cha-Ching!!!!”.
Let me explain…
Obviously, we get paid – through commission – if somebody says “yes” to our opportunity and purchases our product.
Bear with me here…
If it’s impossible to get every person you show to say “yes”…
Meaning it’s impossible to get a “yes” without a “no”…
…and we get paid for “yes”…
In essence, you’re also getting paid for the “no”!
The only way to get more people to say “yes” – closing more sales – is to get more people to say “no”!
Every “no” moves you closer to a “yes”!
When you adopt this mentality…
You stop trying to avoid rejection and, instead, seek it out!
I understand that rejection hurts!
In fact, one of the biggest reasons why people quit network marketing is because they hate rejection.
That’s why re-wiring your brain to associate getting paid with someone says “no” is not the ONLY strategy to use…
Keep your dreams in front of you to handle rejection in network marketing
Strategy number 2: KEEP YOUR DREAMS IN FRONT OF YOU.
The key to WINNING and having success in life is desire.
How do you get a lot of desire?
You must have dreams.
Dreams are the fuel that fires desire.
Personally, when I was first getting started I had a vision board.
I put pictures of beautiful beaches, places I’d like to travel, my family, and a few other dreams onto a big poster board that I was able to look at every day.
This allowed me to focus on my dream of having the ultimate time & money freedom to travel the world and to do what I wanted whenever I wanted so when the rejection came…
It didn’t deter me.
Envision what you want for your life EVERY day.
Realize that “no” gets you closer to a “yes” and rid yourself of your rejection fears!
Go make it happen!
