If you have children, you understand the power of association. You are very cautious about who your children spend time with. You realize what a bad influence can do to a good child.
I like to think the same holds true in network marketing.
Who you spend the most amount of your time with will ultimately determine where you end up in your network marketing business. My best advice is to hang out with the successful distributors in your company and upline who have good attitudes and big goals. Spend time with them as much as possible.
Rub elbows with these winners and learn everything you can from them. Ask them questions, pick their brain and spend quality time with them.
One of the best ways to do this is via events. Attend all of your company functions. Network with these leaders before and after the event. Sit in the front row and take notes. See if you can take one of them out to lunch or dinner and get some one-on-one time with them.
You should also do the following things.
Join mastermind groups. There are lots of free and paid network marketing mastermind groups where successful people share their secrets and best tips. Normally, this is done via phone conference call, but some are also done via webinar, SKYPE or even in person. Make it a point to participate in one of these events at least every 90 days.
Attend all conference calls. Listen to your company’s and upline’s conference calls whenever possible.
Read lots of books. There are TONS of great books about attitude, goal setting and thinking positive. Read one of these types of books every couple weeks and keep putting positive thoughts in your brain.
Keep doing this and an amazing thing will happen in your business and in your personal life.
You will start thinking positive. Your mindset will improve. And you will become the person who were supposed to be. I look at all the personal growth I have had in this industry during the past 12 years. I have completely changed as a person, for the better.
It’s true; who we spend the most of our time with will determine where we end up in life and in business.
Now, I’m not telling you to IGNORE people on your team who are not upbeat, positive or successful.
Help them as needed, but make sure that you spend more time with people who have good attitudes, big goals, and are success minded.
Guard your association like your life depends upon it. You can start out right, but it is easy to get sidetracked and drift. And one negative person can really set you back pretty far.
Here’s the bottom line folks: the power of association in network marketing is just like the power of association in anything else.
- Hang out with criminals and there’s a good chance you will become a criminal.
- Hang out with drug dealers and there is a good chance you will become a drug dealer.
- Hang out with people with bad attitudes and no goals, and you will become like them.
- Hang out with people who are happy, successful, and success minded and you will become like them.
