NOW is the perfect time to build your business and to put yourself into massive, consistent, effective action. Not yesterday, it’s gone. Not tomorrow, it never comes. But right now, this moment in this day. Build your business with a sense of urgency to get things done for your future. And, building for the future all takes place TODAY!
Many people just getting started in a home-business have barriers to success that need to be overcome. I’ve had those barriers in the past as well. I wanted to discuss some of those barriers and how to overcome those “excuses” that get in the way. If you take a “No Excuse” outlook, you will set your sights on success. As the Master Yoda says, “No, try not. Do or do not, but there is no try”
Let go of the “all or nothing” concept that so many of us have. Starting and building a home based business requires many small steps. It’s like building a building, you do it one brick at a time. If you find yourself saying things like -“I only have a few minutes so I shouldn’t call any leads.” WHAT? Make ONE phone call and applaud yourself for that. It’s one more action step in your journey. You never know who might be on the other end of the phone and what they might go on to build. What I find is that if you at least make one call it sometimes leads you to making 2 or 3. Even if you only have 15 minutes a couple times a day you could make 3-5 calls in that time period.
“I work full time and it’s easier for those who don’t.” Not true. Everyone has their own challenges to work with and for those who work, you are out in the mix daily and what better time to begin to make some connections with people. Adapt a natural, fun way of doing this. Once you understand the basic concept of connecting with people you will then seek out those connections. I’ve found that the book, “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie is one of the best concept based books out there on the subject of networking. This should be required reading for anyone just getting started in their home based business.
“Only the ones who got in early reach the top.” The beginning is not necessarily the best time to get in to a company.” In most companies, many of the top income earners come in after the company is solid and established, 5 years or more later. Maybe you are involved with start-up network marketing company already and that’s fine, just realize the challenges. Face it, there are many MLM / party plan companies to choose from some have been around for 40 or 50 years or more. Even companies like Amway or Mary Kay or AMSOIL are attracting new distributors and customers every single day. Remember peoples lives and situations change at least every 6 months and someone who would not have been interested in your opportunity last year may be interested now.
TODAY is the day to create your future so you have so much more of it to look forward to. So, what steps are you capable of taking today? Will you make just ONE phone call? Pass out ONE business card? Ask ONE person about a Home Party or review of your business? Private Business Reception? Conference Call? Suggest your products? Begin taking YOUR first steps in your exciting personal journey so you can be there for the moments you hold priceless! It is not always EASY, but it is SO WORTH IT!
Here is to your Success!
