Network Marketing and MLM is a challenging adventure. I had a serious setback in my business last week. An affiliate program that I spent several hundred dollars to join turns out to also have a fairly sizeable monthly fee attached as well. I guess I didn't pay enough attention to the details. . . I really wanted to have the material. And it is invaluable content.
I was pretty pumped about offering this program as an affiliate product because I really believe it is serious value, so I got pretty deflated when I learned about the monthly sustaining fee.
I was saved by my goals and I didn't have to do a thing! I was deflated-I thought about how this would get in the way of my progress toward my goal. . . and I immediately began to make plans for a new strategy. Sure I had a few moments of “poor little old me" (yes, I am human too) but I got back up and on the job again.
This is the incredible power of having a goal that you can truly own. It's not just an exciting or important goal, something it would be “nice to have or to achieve". Oh, no! To truly be an effective motivator your goal has to be essential to your well being. Your soul must demand that you have it. You see, once you know what you really truly want, you become the Thomas Edison of your business niche. You become willing to work through 12,000 unsuccessful alternatives until you find the way through into the light. Stumbling blocks become stepping stones.
You work, you fail, you re-design and you move forward again. I have spent three quarters of my working life struggling to achieve goals I didn't really want. . . and I believe most people are the same. Here's the key:
Say my wife would like the million dollar house, but I'd really prefer the freedom that would come from having the income generated from a million dollars invested. She convinces me that the house would be great and I begin to work toward this goal. Pretty soon an obstacle arises and I give up.
Very simple! It wasn't my goal. I didnt really want it. . . I wanted the money. When you set a goal make sure it's “your" goal and become very clear on what you are willing to do to get it. . . but even more important be aware of what you are not willing to do.
