How to Best Deal with Rough Roads in Your MLM Business Life
If you are reading this, chances are you are somewhere down a rough road in your business life, wondering what in the world led you here, and more importantly, how to get back into the fastback to success.
Whether you are starting a business and it is just not taking off or you are struggling to reach an easy goal, we all have to face these troubling times in our professional lives. Most importantly, though, we have to know how to deal. Otherwise, we stand the deadly risk of throwing in the towel when nothing seems to be going our way, likely tossing away a good thing that could change your future for the better.
The first thing that will help you with this rough time is to remember that making mistakes is normal – especially in the beginning of something new that you are unfamiliar with.
These rough roads of failure, mistakes and prematurely throwing in the towel are most prevalent in the MLM industry. The successes that were so alluring and inviting are obtainable. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. They just don’t happen overnight!
If you are part of the human race, then part of you is impatient. That part is almost always the part centered around what you want most at the moment. Perhaps that happens to be success in your business right now.
This impatience is the precursor to throwing the towel in if you don’t deal with it correctly. If you fail to remind yourself that you are new to this industry or that you made a mistake because you are new to the industry, you will eventually convince yourself that you are not capable of success, then you are done. Again, your success will happen over a long period of time, not overnight. So strap in and get ready to deal with a few bumpy roads on your way to the smooth roads of success, especially in the MLM industry.
While on the topic of mistakes, it is important to remember that you will make them. More importantly, though, is the fact that you should be learning from the mistakes you will make rather than shaming or doubting yourself with each mistake you will make. I have a friend who was a distributor for an unnamed MLM. She kept making the same mistake over and over because she did not have the foresight to learn from the mistake and do better the next time. She eventually quit that MLM and moved to Kyani, made the same mistake again then learned from it. She now enjoys incredible success!
So many people say that history repeats itself. It certainly does, so learning from your mistakes and your past now will undoubtedly prepare you to better deal with your future, leading to furthered success in an effortless fashion. Putting in the hard work now of learning from your mistakes will prepare you to maintain your achieved success rather than continuing to try creating success for yourself.
One thing that my Kyani friend loves to do is compare herself now to herself last year a few times a year. You can do it now – simply think back to last year around this time and compare to now. Chances are you will find many ways that you are doing better now. If not, you now have identified what you need to focus on – already more successful in knowing your areas of weakness rather than unknowingly wondering why you are failing.
Finally, when you experience rough patches in your MLM business, don’t be afraid to roll up your sleeves and get to work! There will always be work needing to be done. Honestly, the sooner you realize that work is not going to go away, the sooner you will embrace it and start to bear the oh-so-sweet fruits that hard work alone can produce. Working hard, being patient and understanding and learning from your mistakes will always be worth it in the end. Always. Trust me!
