Building a successful and profitable network-marketing business is not a sprint. Anyone who went in this business has entered into a combination of marathon and hurdles. Success does not come through a one-time enormous effort, but through consistent repetition of the same activities again and again.
Less effort required
Those who transform these individual tasks into success routines conserve their mental energy, use less willpower and reach their goal almost playfully. Deciding by new each time whether and when an important task should be carried out, costs an immense amount of willpower. This is especially true when the task is unpleasant and we have to reckon with resistance.
Completing the right tasks
However, precisely these tasks lead us to success in creating a big downline: Make contacts, invite people, present business and products. I can only advise you to spend at least 50%, better 70% of the time allocated to the business on this.
Switch to autopilot
If an activity is transformed into a routine by repeating it regularly, it is much easier to start it. The decision to make it, has been shifted into the unconscious. The necessary individual steps no longer require so much concentration, because they have been practiced often enough. These have also become part of an unconscious automatics.
Let us think, for example, of swimming, driving a car or operating our smartphones. These were all activities we had to concentrate on at the beginning. Today they are easy for us, because they have become a habit. The results of a 2009 study by University College London show that it takes an average of 66 days until we have made a new behaviour or activity a habit. That we can hold on, can't we?
How do we create a habit,
that will get us to our desired destination faster? In the beginning, some willpower is needed. The first step is to write down the desired habit. In doing so, we also answer the question whywe want to acquire this habit. Which goal do we want to achieve? In the second step, we assign the task, which we want to repeat regularly, a specific period, during which we want to complete it.
Calendar instead of to-do list
The classic to-do list is less suitable for this. Only when we clearly define whenwe want to do this task and write it down in our calendar, the urge for realization arises.
If we now remember a method that we all know, we build a new work habit into us so firmly, that it almost playfully brings us to success. When we were still at school, the teacher dictated the new timetable at the beginning of a new school year. This set out the lessons for each day of the week. In the following week everything started all over again. After a few weeks we got used to it and knew without thinking about what was due next.
Back to the roots - the good old timetable
Exactly this method I recommend to you for building up your group. Reserve fixed appointments in your weekly calendar for initiating contacts, for your Facebook work, for the telephone calls to invite prospective customers, for your recruitment talks, business presentations and the support of your new partners. Always try to schedule the same activities on the same day of the week at the same time. This creates a habitual pattern, that makes it easier for you to carry out the planned activities from week to week. You'll soon get used to it just like brushing your teeth every day.
After a short time everything goes much easier. Before you know it, you're where I think you should be: At the top of the career system of your company.
All the best on your way to the top and best regards!
