If you want to achieve the same results as the top people in your network marketing company, you need to follow their example. I’m not talking about following the techniques they said they used twenty years ago to build their business, because they will not work in today’s over-saturated society. Simply follow the way they are. If your qualities match, you’ll experience the same successes.
Becoming a successful leader in network marketer requires learning and practicing new skills until they are a part of who you are automatically. It is not necessarily the words you say, it is the kind of person who you are when you speak the words that make a difference. Do you ever wonder why millionaires who lose their money are able to earn it back again? It is because of the kind of person they became to acquire it the first time around.
Having a willingness to do whatever it takes to get where you are going, a sense of urgency and a winning mindset are qualities you must possess. When people spend time with your excitement, it is contagious and they want to be around you. Here are six ways to help you become the kind of person who can continue to succeed over and over and over again:
Quality 1: Strive to be trustworthy.
Sincerity requires saying what you mean and meaning what you say. Do whatever you can to keep promises and be accountable. Look people in the eye to gain their confidence while sharing what is real and truthful, without using persuasion techniques. Focusing on what you believe in will automatically bring out the truth. People will not question your belief in what you are promoting when you are sincere.
Quality 2: Be self-assured and direct.
A successful network marketer is always confident before reaching the high levels of income. Expect people to be interested in what you have to say. After all, it is important to you! Be who you want to become, do what it takes to become that person and that will result in having the things on your goal list.
Quality 3: Be a good mentor.
This is another quality successful network marketers possess. Everyone needs someone to show them the ropes. Not everything can be learned in a book. True leadership means creating leaders by empowering others to take control of their future, not followers. Helping people appreciate their own capabilities is an extremely important part of mentoring. Success comes from giving power to others without taking any away from yourself.
Quality 4: Generosity is another way to become more powerful.
Freely offer everything you can that comes from yourself and not your pocket book. This includes inspiration, enthusiasm, support, friendship, information, honesty and coaching. Think of what you can offer instead of what you are getting out of any given situation. Recognizing and acknowledging people’s strong points can do amazing things to their self confidence and level of activity.
Quality 5: Become a self-starter.
Get yourself going without having to be pushed by others and keep yourself moving toward your goals. Take it upon yourself to accomplish all of the things you know you must do first, then all the other activities fall into place because you have things to look forward to. Take the initiative to learn and grow on your own.
Quality 6: Be a good listener.
This is the final quality you must possess to grow your business. There are many different ways to listen, but if you are not focused on the needs of others, you won’t be able to help them. Focus on what people are saying instead of thinking of what to say next. The more familiar you become with other people’s personality styles, the better you will become at speaking their language.
Always remember that who you become on your journey to success is much more rewarding that the material possessions you can buy. Money and items come and go like the seasons, but who you are will never go away. The better you can become, the more you can help people and the easier it is to overcome challenges for yourself. Reinforce your strengths, work on your weaknesses and you’ll be delighted with the changes.
