What do I mean by people you?
I mean network marketers trying to become successful in this business.
The Parasite That Infects Those Looking for Network Marketing Success…
So, what is this parasite that I’m talking about?
That parasite is FEAR. But fear of what? What are YOU afraid of? Is it fear of trying and failing, is it fear of succeeding, is it fear of talking to people, is it fear of looking stupid, is fear of feeling stupid, is fear of the cold call, is it fear of the warm call?
There’s too many to list, but the fact is that fear is most likely lurking somewhere in there hindering your success.
Now fear is not necessarily a bad thing. However, not knowing how to deal with that fear is. Not knowing how to act accordingly.
As humans, when we fear something, then our body has an immediate sensation come over us. This sensation you’ve probably heard of as being the “fight or flight” response.
It’s how you deal with the fear then which is what’s important to your network marketing success. Whether you fight, or take flight!
So, if you’re being chased by a dog or worse…a pack of dogs that want to eat you… then you’re probably best off to take flight. Standing to fight would be stupid, and not a good idea. That’s when the fight or flight has served you well.
But if you’re afraid to call leads or prospects on the phone, or afraid to email your list because you’re not sure if they’ll like what you’re going to write or if you’re afraid to talk to your neighbor about your business…then flight is not the answer. That’s when you need to stop and assess the situation, and that’s when you need to decide that it’s time to FIGHT!
You’ve got to get a little bit of fight in you if you want to succeed in anything in life, much less if you want to see network marketing success.
And the fact is that you’ll start to condition your mind. Your mind’s fear response mechanism (wherever it is) doesn’t know the difference between a ferocious lion or a telephone. So, you’ve got to teach it to chill out around the telephone and run like heck from the lion. Once you’ve picked that phone up a few times, you’ll begin to teach it the difference. And because of that you’ll start to rapidly see more network marketing success.
But let me ask you, why are you not getting more of this sort of training for network marketing success?
