Zig Ziglar put I so very well when he said:
“You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want”
The absolute key to long term success in life is in helping others achieve their success. One of the reasons I am so passionate about the Network Marketing Industry is I believe it is unlike most others because the more people you help in this Industry the more successful you will be and the more successful you will feel because it is much more than money, it is that sense of contribution.
So how do you help others, first you must know what others want and that fact can be missed when we are prospecting in the business because anyone can be a Network Marketer we sometimes believe that everybody should be. Nothing could be further from the truth. You can start helping others by firstly finding out what their needs and desires are and if in fact Network Marketing is the right thing for them.
Everyone joins our Industry for their own reasons, not yours. Let’s just get this quite clear its about them not about us. I am stressing this point because I was very slow to learn it. I would look at someone who was complaining about not having enough money or as many of my friends were complaining about working long hoursand often being away from home, and it just didn’t seem logical to me that they wouldn’t want to do what I was doing after all time and financial freedom is what this Industry can provide, better than other in my mind, so I got a little frustrated that they didn’t want to do what I was doing. I was a bit of a slow learner, it’s about them not about me!
Once I learned that part of helping people I set about to master the skill of helping those that did join my business to achieve the success they were after, and that came in various forms, regular contact, holding meeting, 3 way calls, and helping them get their new people started. I decided one of the best ways I could help my team was by leading by example. You will find that is the most powerful way to help others it inspires those that are ready to be inspired and for those that aren’t they will find other avenues of inspiration that best suit them. A really hard lesson which I will cover in tip # 7 is letting go of those that really don’t want to do the work to build a business. These people are often the ones who need it the most however they are prepared to give the least, it’s a hard one!
Network Marketing Success Tip # 6 To achieve true long term success, help enough other people get what they want.
Love that feeling of helping others!
