In today’s post, I’m going to share some advice I learned from Cesar Rodriguez. Cesar Rodriguez is a popular network marketing trainer. He offers different training courses, videos, and speaks at many live events. Although I have never met him personally, I’ve followed his training for at least five to six years now.
Cesar Rodriguez published a YouTube video titled Why People Quit & How to Act! I’ve watched that video at least 20 times now and learn something new every time I re-watch it. What I want to do in the paragraphs below is share some of my favorite lessons from the video.
This information is NOT transcribed from the audio. I just took notes on my computer while he was talking. Some of these lessons are actual quotes and others are simply paraphrased. The information from the video is in BOLD. I also add my own two cents after each of the lessons.
I hope you get as much value from this training video as I did.
Cesar Rodriguez: Why People Quit & How to Act!
People are going to leave. People are going to quit. People are going to cancel. This is a business of attrition. Do not take it personal when people leave. You don’t need everyone to stay to build a big team and big income.
It’s emotional when people quit. You were best friends one day. They were fired up and excited and a few days later they quit. Be emotionally detached from what others say and do. Hope for the best but expect everyone to do nothing with the business.
The reason we can make the amount of money we do is because we must deal with people. People are crazy. They will lie, quit, and disappoint you.
Not everyone is met to be with you your entire life. Some people are simply there to grow and mold you. We all have friends and associates we no longer associate with, for whatever reasons. Learn from each person you meet and remember not everyone will be with you your entire journey.
You have two options when people quit. You can get emotional and be sad, or you can be happy, and move on. Always keep your vision and why in front of all you and focus on what you can do and what you can control. Do not let other people’s actions dictate how you feel.
Someone who quit has a negative energy. The quicker you disassociate with that negative energy, the better. Surround yourself with positive, supportive people who uplift and encourage you.
If people aren’t canceling dropping out, and quitting, you aren’t building fast enough or big enough. Food for thought.
If you are focused on pleasing people, you can’t be a leader. Your job is to set a good example for others to follow. No matter what you say or do you will not please everyone. Your job is to be respected, not liked.
You must constantly push forward and keep moving. Always do the things you want your team to do. Always focus on the income producing activities.
Am I going to let someone who quit determine my energy level or make me want to quit or cancel? Take control of your own attitude, mindset, and business.
You need people, but you don’t need that person. To get the top you must help a lot of people, but you don’t have to help anyone specifically.
I’m running a marathon and looking for people who want to cross the finish line with me. Not everyone who starts the race with you will finish the race with you.
I don’t want everyone to be successful, but I do want everyone to have a great experience. At the end of the day, each person on your team is their own CEO and is responsible for their own success.
It’s not the blowing of the wind, it’s the set of your sails. Every adversity is an opportunity for a comeback.
You always find what you look for. Choose wisely. If you look for a reason to quit, you will find a reason. If you look for a reason to stay, you will find a reason.
Many people are looking for something to justify their inactivity or lack of results. It’s normal for people to blame other people or circumstances justifying why they quit or did not perform. Don’t expect people to man up or woman up and accept 100% responsibility. Most won’t.
If you set your mind on winning, and see your commitment through, you will overcome any obstacle you face. Focus on what you want, not what you don’t want. Have a big why that makes you cry and have tunnel vision until you achieve it.
If you think the reason you aren’t successful is anything but you, you will never be successful. Successful people take 100% ownership of their thoughts and actions.
It’s not about the company, opportunity, products, or compensation plan. It’s about taking responsibility of your own success. Enough said.
When someone on your team quits, know they were not meant to be with you forever. Focus on the people who stay. And focus on winning and you will win and find other winners.
I’m not chasing them, I’m replacing them! Exactly. Have posture and work with the people who stick around and produce.
Some will, some won’t, so what, next. You are looking for people who are looking.
Tell me yes or tell me no, but tell me quick, I’ve got to go. This is good posture to have when talking with your prospects.
Forget about the haters and people who cancel. They weren’t meant to be with you. Focus on supporting and helping the people who do stay and the people who do build.
