Let me start by asking you a question. Are you creating the results that you want with your Network Marketing business?
When I ask that question, the answer is almost always NO. It’s unfortunate, but also true that most people in our profession struggle to achieve the results they desire and – even more important – they don’t know what to do to change those results.
What if there was a way that you could know what to do on a daily basis, you could see consistent progress, and you would always achieve a result in your business? Imagine what you could accomplish with that information. Imagine what you could do if you had that knowledge.
Well, there is. I don’t want to make it sound cliche, but there are three simple steps that you can take to always create a result in your business. No matter where you are in your business today and no matter what you have – or have not – accomplished before, if you apply these three steps, your business will grow. Building your business isn’t something that might happen, it isn’t something that could happen, it’s something that will happen if you apply what I am about to teach you.
The Success Is In The System
I want you to step back and take a look at the opportunity that you are building. Are there people who are having success with your company? Are there people ascending the ranks, going on trips, getting cars bonuses and making an income? If the answer to those questions is yes – and let’s be honest with ourselves, it is YES or you wouldn’t be in the company – then one thing is certain. There is a success system in place in your company. The people who are breaking ranks and earning the income that you desire are doing something to create that success. It just makes sense right? What system are they using? What are the exact steps that they are doing that is creating those results?
Now, you may not know the answer to that question at this moment, but at this moment, you do know that people are creating results. Therefore, all you have to do is whatever it takes to learn the steps in that system. Whatever you do, don’t re-create the wheel. That’s probably why you aren’t achieving the success you desire now. You are trying to do it YOUR way instead of doing it THE way. Maybe that sounds weird, but let me ask you this question. If you had to choose between two systems, one system MIGHT work, and one system was PROVEN to work, which one would you choose? You would choose the one that was proven to work right? Well, if people are creating results in your company right now – and they are – the critical element that is missing from your success is YOU applying the system that THEY are using to create those results. When you find the system, you will find the success.
Now that we understand that the system is the foundation of our success, it’s time to breathe life into your business. I want to introduce you to the acronym C.P.R. No, it’s not a technique we use to revive a person, but, when applied correctly, it will revive your business. It stands for Consistency + Persistency = Results.
Nothing Is More Powerful Than Consistency
What does it mean to be consistent? For the purposes of building your Network Marketing business, being consistent means to do the steps in your success system on a regular basis and preferably on a daily basis. Simply put, no matter how great the system you use, if you don’t execute the steps in that system consistently, you will never achieve success. One of the easiest ways to explain this is to think about going to the gym.
Let’s imagine two different scenarios. In the first one, you wake up on Monday morning and go to the gym. You are excited about getting into shape and you spend three hours doing the perfect workout to put your body in peak condition. You then leave the gym and don’t go back for 90 days. In the second scenario, you wake up on Monday morning and go to the gym. You are excited about getting into shape and you spend an hour doing some exercises that you think will work. You then wake up the next day and do it again, and the next day, and the next day and you form the habit of going to the gym five times a week for an hour a day. Every time you go to the gym, you learn something new about getting in shape and you apply that new knowledge to your workout. Here’s the important question. Which one of these workout regimens is going to get you into better shape after 90 days? Is it scenario #1 or scenario #2?
Of course, the answer is scenario #2. Now, you may be laughing at my example, but I bet you know people who get all excited and then do scenario #1, right? Have you ever done that? With fitness or with your business? Here is the truth. No matter how great the system is that you are using, if you do not consistently apply that system, you will not achieve results. Our industry is filled with people who wonder why they haven’t produced success, but have never worked for 30 – much less 60 or 90 days – in a row to build their business. Consistency is critical to success. Plain and simple. Once you have identified the system that others are using to achieve results, the secret to success is to execute that system consistently.
Persistence Creates The Future
Have you ever really thought about what it means to be persistent? The dictionary says that persistence is “firm or obstinate continuance in a course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition.” In Network Marketing, we define it in a much simpler way. Being persistent means that you are going to build your business even in those moments and on those days that you don’t feel like it.
None of us are immune to challenges. Every person that has ever achieved success had done it by overcoming adversity. No matter what the path, and no matter how good the system you employ, there are always going to be things that get in the way. There will be emotions, obstacles, opinions, schedules and many more of life’s challenges that don’t go your way as you are building your business. You must be persistent. There will be mornings where you simply don’t want to. You must be persistent. There will be people who don’t show up. There will be people who say no and you won’t know why. You must be persistent. There will be people that quit and people that let you down, and even then, YOU must be persistent.
Here is my promise to you. Every time that you step up to a challenge – big or small – and persevere, the challenges that follow will become easier to push through. Overcoming obstacles is a skill that is learned by being persistent. Being persistent, no matter what the obstacle before you is the key to your long-term success.
Let’s Bring It All Together
Achieving results in your Network Marketing business is not easy, but it is very simple. The question is, are you willing to do what it takes to achieve the results that you dream about?
Your first step is to pay attention to what the achievers in your company are doing. There are people, right now, who are achieving massive success in your company and you must identify and learn the system that they are using. Model their steps and model their behavior, and you will model their results as well.
Once you have learned the steps in the system, you apply consistency. It’s not enough to know what to do, and it’s not even enough to do the steps correctly. To achieve success, in any endeavor, you must do the steps over and over and over and over again on a consistent basis. You must execute the steps in your success system with consistency or you will never achieve the results you desire.
Once you have identified your success system and decided that you are going to build your business consistently, one thing is certain. There will be obstacles in your way. This is where you apply persistence. Your future is worth whatever it takes to overcome these obstacles. No matter what get’s in your path, there is an answer, and you possess the skills and the tenacity to find it. Apply persistence and stay on course no matter what.
Consistency + Persistency = Results
Identify the system that your company and your leaders are using to achieve success. Once you have it, execute that system consistently and be persistent in your pursuits and you will achieve the results you desire. Find your system, apply C.P.R. and breathe new life into your future.
