When you feel like giving up, remember why you held on for so long in the first place.
Success doesn’t come easy. If you’re looking for an overnight, get rich quick scheme, then network marketing is not for you. There have been many times in my life that I’ve felt like giving up on things, and this journey has been no different.
Starting out, I had the same doubts as many others. What if I couldn’t make it work? How on earth was I going to get my business off the ground when I knew hardly any people? But I persevered and I continue to do so today.
If you ever feel like giving up, just remember there is a little girl watching, who wants to be just like you. Don’t disappoint her.
You never know who is watching you, who is being inspired by you and who is close to joining you. The great thing about Network Marketing is that you are in an industry based around getting to know new people and making friends. These new connections may be watching you and being inspired by what you are doing.
When you feel like giving up…
1. Reconnect with your ‘why’.
What is your purpose for running this business? Are you looking to buy a new house? Work around your family? Reconnecting with your reason why is a great way to find new motivation. Look at your goals and, if you don’t already have one, create a vision board. Seeing what you are working for will help you to get there.
2. Take some ‘me time’ and get happy.
What do you enjoy doing? I mean, really enjoy. Take some time out to do these things and get yourself into a happy place. If you’re feeling good, you are much more likely to succeed. Change your mindset and you can change your life.
3. Plan. Plan. Plan!
We all feel a little lost at times, and that’s okay. If we don’t know where we’re going, sometimes we feel inclined to just give up. With a clear goal and a plan to achieve it, you can help yourself to get back on track.
Put some time aside to make a plan. Relax, put on your favourite music and think about what you really want. Write down two goals. One short-term (to be achieved within the next couple of months) and one long-term (to be achieved within six months to one year). Now think about how you will achieve these goals. What activity do you need to complete. Write a step by step plan of how you can achieve your goals and then break that down into daily and weekly activities. If you have a clear plan of what needs to be done, you can focus on productivity, and the results will come.
