Network marketing is a lot like sales. To succeed, you need good confidence, high self-esteem and a positive self-image. You need these things because you will deal with lots of rejection, ups and downs and temporary setbacks. You will also deal with difficult people.
People with depression or low self-esteem will seldom make it big in our industry. Once they get a couple NOs, some rejection, or someone that is rude to them, they quit. They just can’t handle the criticism and rejection. Their self image and confidence are already so low and they don’t want it damaged anymore, so they return to their comfort zone.
What’s great about our industry is you don’t need all of these things to get started. You don’t have to be happy and bubbly. You don’t have to be enthusiastic and have high self-esteem. You don’t need to be confident to get started in MLM. Sure, it helps if you have these qualities, but you can also develop these things by reading lots of books, attending seminars and associating with positive minded people.
If you were to look at the person I was when I first joined this industry twelve years ago, I didn’t have a lot going for me. Sure, I was self motivated and gung ho, but I didn’t have a good attitude, a positive self image or high self-esteem. I was definitely a diamond in the rough. Thank goodness my sponsor saw some potential in me.
If you are already someone who is confident, thinks highly of yourself and has good self-esteem, this could be the dream career for you. There is tons of potential for you to build a part-time or full-time income in network marketing.
And if you are someone who has low self-esteem, no confidence, and a bad self-image you must realize that it will be tough to build a large team in network marketing UNTIL you improve yourself! Just because you aren’t Mr. Enthusiasm doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get started in network marketing. It just means you will need to work on yourself before you will ever achieve massive success.
I consider network marketing to be the best personal development course on the planet. There are very few other industries that focus so much on self improvement. In fact, that is the # 1 thing I love about our industry. I love that you can develop your potential and become an amazing person while you help others AND make money.
The bottom line is that confidence, self-esteem and a good self-image are important in sales, network marketing and in business. That’s why it’s so important to work on yourself and focus on continuous improvement. Try to get a little bit better each day. Read lots of books, listen to audio training, attend seminars and associate with positive minded people.
Do that and you can change your life for the better!
