The Key Challenge | August 23, 2010

When We First Met

When you sign up to start your new business, you are probably very excited. You’ve got this jazzy new product with which you’re going to take the world by storm. You’re going to make a ton of money, because everyone is going to want this. You start making your list of who you want to show your new business to, you can’t wait to go out and show somebody what you’re all excited about.

The Morning After

So now you’ve made a few presentations and you feel comfortable with giving it and things are really cooking for you and everyone is signing up. Well, okay, some people are signing up. Or maybe… my friend took pity on me and signed up with me after I told him I’d done sixteen presentations and no one had signed up yet. Or worse yet, sixteen presentations and nobody signed up. Could you keep going at that point?

Thomas Edison, according to legend, figured out hundreds of ways to make a light bulb that didn’t work. Ever the optimist, he said he hadn’t failed, he had just eliminated 899 wrong ways of building a light bulb. He carried on and eventually found a way that worked, providing a good source of light and a decent lifespan for the bulb. Where would you have said enough is enough?

Another is an individual who went to work as a salesman for a company, he made presentations every day, but no sales. After a month of no sales, the owner wanted to fire him so he could find a line of work he was more suited to, but he begged the owner to let him continue. To make a long story short, on his 106th presentation, he made a sale. After that he started making occasional sales, then more sales; after two years he was the best salesman for the company. How long would you have kept going with no sales?

The Key Challenge

The key challenge is remaining consistent in the face of failures, disappointments, and let-downs. Do you want it bad enough to follow through and continue doing the promotional and lead-generating activities that will eventually create the income you dream about.

If you believe in the product and the company, have a big why for doing the business, focus on the main thing and can be consistent about it, you will be a winner.

To find a company and a product you can believe in, go to AlansMLMTips.com.

If you already found a company to work with, find a mentor or an upline who can train you, get trained and be consistent in applying what they teach you.

If you’re already trained, be consistent in applying what you learned. Be consistent in learning more: about the industry, about leadership, about training others, about every facet of this wonderful industry.
