Today, I want to share a very valuable lesson with you. That lesson is “success happens in MLM when the emotion leaves.” By nature we are all emotional creatures. No one makes logical decisions. Instead, we make emotional decisions and then justify it with logic. You might think you are a logical person, but trust me, you aren’t. Neither am I. The sooner you understand that the better off you will be.
While we are naturally emotional creatures, I’ve quickly discovered that successful people have an amazing ability to master their emotions. Rather than letting their emotions control them, they control their emotions. Successful people let their actions control their emotions rather than letting their emotions control their actions.
When it comes to network marketing, the sooner you can “get a grip” on your emotions the better off you will be. While it’s perfectly fine to “get excited” from time-to-time, there is no good reason you should have a bunch of ups and downs: highs and lows.
In other words, you shouldn’t get all pumped up because your new prospect tells you she is going to blow the business up. And you shouldn’t get all down and out when that same prospect quits seven days later. If you do this, you will be an emotional roller coaster.
Whether people join or don’t join your business opportunity, you should be the same. Whether your new team members sponsors 20 people or sponsors no one, you should be the same. Whether or not your new team member goes on auto-ship you should be the same. Once again, don’t let other people’s words or actions control how you feel. Don’t be attached to the outcome.
As hard as that sounds to do, it’s very important. You see, what goes up must come down. if you are always going through extreme highs, and then extreme lows, you won’t make it very long in this industry. Instead, you need to be balanced. You need to separate your emotions from what other people do and say. After all, you really can’t control what others do or say, so why let it get the best of you?
The sooner you can let go of your emotions and stop letting other people’s words and actions dictate how you feel, the better off you will be. Just do the work and don’t be attached to the outcome of what happens. Just remember, success happens in MLM when the emotion leaves. Learn to master your emotions rather than letting your emotions control you.
