Your mom is usually right about everything. Sooner or later you will probably thank her. But, when it comes to online marketing and success, you need to throw her philosophies out the window!
For one, your mom probably wanted you to get along with everyone. Well, in Network marketing, online marketing & Entrepreneurship, you want to NOT hangout with your competition, but see what they do and possibly copy the successful ones.
Let’s also say that you are starting a new business, let’s say a Network Marketing business. You are excited about it, but you haven’t learned how to become “laser-focused” with your new business and you have not built up the proper self-esteem needed to keep working your business, so what happens when your spouse, boyfriend/girlfriend doesn’t support you, even ridicules you?
Throw them out with the bath water! No, not really, but how are you going to grow your business with unsupportive friends and family? You literally can’t, so make sure the company you keep supports you and doesn’t break you down.
I had to keep quiet about my new business for awhile because I knew my dad was cynical and my old friends were negative. I got rid of my old-friends already when I quit partying, but with my dad I didn’t tell him about my business until I was pretty confident about it.
I am fortunate that my girlfriend is an internet marketer herself and we build each other up everyday. Starting a new business has many ups and downs, especially Network Marketing, so if you’re all alone, you are in for a tough ride. Ways to survive the beginning:
1. Connect with your sponsor/mentor: This is so important. You are like a baby doe with gangley legs and there’s wolves all around waiting for you. You need support and guidance. Read books about your chosen profession, study tutorials online and pray.
2. Disconnect from the Past: The past is gone. Nothing you did in the past really matters and people are too busy thinking about themselves to think about what you did in the past, so get over it. Become who you want to be right now and get those dreams back. Anything is possible today with the internet and technology.
3. Opposition flavors your story: Every successful person has a great story of struggle. So, next time you feel like quitting, or half your team quits, remember that these experiences are what will attract people to you later on. If you don’t have a great story of how you overcame obstacles no one is going to have complete faith in you because you haven’t been challenged. Be strong and don’t quit whatever you do!
