There is only one thing you can control in network marketing. Before I reveal that answer, let me take a moment and tell you what you can’t control.
- You can’t control who joins
- You can’t control who quits
- You can’t control who does the work
- You can’t control who goes on auto-ship
- You can’t control who sponsors people
- You can’t control who goes to convention
- You can’t control who gets customers
You can’t control ANY of these things. Sure, I wish you could. That would make the business a lot more fun and a lot easier.
But reality is reality.
The only thing you really can control is HOW MANY people you expose the business too each day, each week and each month!
All you can control is your PERSONAL EFFORTS. All you can control is how many people you talk too and how many people you share a presentation with.
Taking time to worry about these other things is crazy and is a complete waste of time.
I learned from my mama a long time ago to focus on what you do control and not to worry about everything else. That advice is so practical in network marketing.
What does all this mean?
It means that if your group isn’t growing, share the plan with someone else!
If someone quits, share the plan with someone else!
If someone won’t go on auto-ship or order the products, share the plan with someone else!
If someone isn’t serious, share the plan with someone else!
Work the numbers enough and you will find QUALITY people who take responsibility for their own business and build it big.
Fall into management mode and you will wonder why your team won’t grow and you will be FRUSTRATED and broke.
I know this advice is simple. Sometimes people don’t take advice seriously because it is simple.
The bottom line is to focus on what you can control: your personal efforts. Expose the products and business too as many people as you can and let God sort everyone else out! Do that and watch your business and bonus check grow.
