This Word Robs You of Success: Are You Using It?
Today is a BIG lesson.
I was coaching a leader yesterday who has built a huge team but her business has slowed down since the COVID quarantine.
It’s interesting because most leaders I’m working with are seeing a pretty large increase in sales. In fact, I just spoke with a leader last week who had a brand new guy on his team join with no prior MLM experience and build a team to over 180 customers in 13 days. Crazy growth!
I haven’t been able to figure out why this leader isn’t seeing growth on her team. She’s a powerful speaker, her team loves her and she has a tremendous work ethic…
Until I started carefully listening to her words.
“We’re doing lots of zooms and they’re great but our strength was in the power of our events.”
“My leaders are committed but with the quarantine the growth is so slow.”
“I’m not being negative with my team but they’re being negative with me.”
The word “but” was the indicator that she was letting the quarantine be an excuse for her team’s growth slowing down versus a reason for her team to speed up.
The word “but” negates everything that goes before it…
It steals the power from any positive statement.
“I want to exercise, but I don’t have time.” Your mind doesn’t focus on your desire to exercise, it puts all the power on the bullshit belief that you don’t have enough time. The word “but” robs you from achieving your goal.
What I quickly realized is this leader was using the quarantine as an excuse for growth slowing down instead of using the quarantine as a reason for growth to speed up.
I realized that I didn’t need to troubleshoot any of the tactics this leader was using… (Problems in leadership are almost never the result of poor tactics – it’s almost always the result of poor thinking.)
Here’s the interesting thing about leadership in network marketing…
We create our reality by the level of belief we have… and in turn, the level of belief we transfer to our team to create their belief.
The key to creating momentum in MLM all boils down to one word – BELIEF.
I did an experiment years ago… I flew into Kenya where I had a decent sized team of a few hundred people but they had plateaued. There were powerful leaders who I knew had the ability to crush it in a massive way.
I knew the problem was simply a lack of belief.
How to Create Momentum in Network Marketing?
So I called a private leadership meeting with about 6 or 7 of the top leaders. I laid out a weekly and monthly business building schedule for presentations and training. I went slide by slide with a new presentation explaining exactly why this would work in a huge way for them to use and explained how they needed to conduct their training.
I let them know that EVERYONE needed to follow this schedule and this exact presentation and that if they would follow it to the tee, they would experience huge momentum and that it was essentially guaranteed.
I hammered them with faith to give them an unshakeable belief in this new system.
I left, they went to work, and guess what happened…
They CRUSHED IT.
Over the next year, they put in thousands of sales.
Here’s the key in what happened…
Their momentum had NOTHING to do with the presentation I showed them. Their momentum had NOTHING to do with the schedule I told them to follow.
I could have just as easily given them a completely different presentation and a completely different schedule and it would have worked just as well.
The reason why it worked is because I gave them CERTAINTY that this system would work.
Because they believed it would work and they in turn transferred belief to their team, it did.
I’ll say it again…
In network marketing, we create our own reality by our level of belief.
What reality are you creating?
If you don’t have a definite and precise answer to that question, that’s a problem and I promise you it is costing you a great amount of success.
