Laws of momentum in network marketing
In one of my previous blog posts, I gave you the first 2 of 5 laws of momentum in network marketing.
If you missed it…
You’re going to wanna’ go HERE and check it out.
Let’s move on to Law #3…
Laws of momentum in network marketing Law#3: The Law of Sustained Activity
Momentum is a gift.
If you take it for granted and don’t treat it as such, it goes away very quickly.
MUCH more quickly than it came.
The mistake I’ve seen far too any leaders make (and I’ve made it myself) is celebrating too soon.
You work like crazy…
Burn the midnight oil…
Burn the candle at both ends…
And FINALLY create some serious growth in your team.
So you decide you deserve a vacation and you’re off to the beach for 2 weeks. Only to return to see your team’s growth at half the speed it was at before you left.
Listen, when you create a level of momentum on your team, it’s not time to party.
It’s time to DOUBLE your efforts!
Never forget this… and REMEMBER that I told you:
It takes just as much, or more, energy to sustain momentum as it does to create it!
It’s like pushing a car uphill…
You can get some forward momentum going but as soon as you stop pushing, the car slows down or starts rolling backwards.
It’s not the time to party until you have several leaders pushing as hard as you are and leading as strongly as you are.
If you’re reading this and saying to yourself, “But MAAAAATTTTTTT, that sounds HARD!”
Here’s my coaching:
Suck it up, Buttercup.
Getting rich is hard.
Achieving lifestyle freedom is hard.
Helping others achieve freedom and, thus, giving you financial stability is hard.
But DAMN is it worth it!
And if you really think about it…
It’s nowhere near as hard as working a job for the rest of your life…
As hard as struggling financially year after year…
…and nowhere near as hard as the regret you feel by not accomplishing your dreams.
Listen, my friend… it’s hard either way.
So pick your hard.
Laws of momentum in network marketing Law#4: Thou Shall Remain Humble
No matter how good you are…
Or how much money you’re making…
Quite possibly the single biggest enemy of success is your EGO.
And if you’re saying to yourself, “Oh I don’t have an ego!”, those are the exact same words every ego-maniac has uttered at some point.
I’m known as a pretty humble guy. Those that have worked with me will hopefully attest to that.
But I must admit, my ego has gotten the best of me on multiple occasions.
Thankfully, I let me ego get out of hand early in my career and I was smart enough to learn from my mistakes.
Here’s what I’ve discovered
The need for recognition is both a powerful weapon and a dangerous killer.
Recognition, when given to others is a powerful weapon and recognition…
When you are so starved for it that you subconsciously hog it, it becomes a dangerous killer.
I’ll write MUCH more about this in my upcoming book on leadership, but for now, just practice this concept which I learned from my good friend and amazing trainer, Marc Accetta…
Think of recognition like a hot potato…
As soon as someone edifies you (tossing you the hot potato), toss it back to them or someone else as fast as possible.
When my leaders edify and recognize me, I do my best to give them the credit or give my mentor the credit.
By staying humble and keeping your ego in check you create loyalty and trust. It may feel good to get recognition, but it should feel WAY better to you giving it away.
