Lack of ACTION is the #1 reason why the majority of multi-level marketers end up dropping out.
See, nothing will happen in your business if you don’t take action. Even if go on 5 webinars per week and try to learn the things out there and don’t put anything in practice you really don’t have a business. You may know a lot but you still don’t have a business.
A lot of us are faced with this kind of situation, the problem of not taking action.
What’s the reason why most home based business are struggling to take action? Basically, I’ve learned that there are 3 reasons why:
Reason #1 – You Don’t Know What to Do
You just don’t, especially if you’re a beginner. It took me 18 months before I was able to get myself into action because I really don’t know what to do and I know nothing. I was like a fish that was removed from the water floundering.
Personally for me I’m just blessed that I come across the Elite Marketing Pro community. Their training platform equipped me with the right and updated strategies so I can specifically know what I needed to do.
Some of the resources include What’s Working Now, a monthly publication that’s written by some of the best people in the industry.
Another resource is the training on the Elite Marketing Pro back office which includes the following:
- Beginner Strategies – Email Signatures, Personal Invites and Social Media
- Intermediate Strategies – Video Marketing, Blogging, Social Media, Google Hangouts, Pay-Per-Click (PPC) Content, Banners, Copywriting, Pay-Per-View (PPV) and Facebook PPC
- Advanced Strategies – Social Media, YouTube Training and Native Advertising
By having access with their platform I was able to transition from NOT knowing what to do to basically having clarity and have a real business.
Reason #2 – You Don’t Know What to Do First
Going back to first 18 months that I was struggling I remembered that I’ve learned a lot of stuff but still I was so confused. I got overwhelmed and I didn’t know what to do first. I didn’t even know where to start my business.
And this is the second reason why I am so blessed to be part of the Elite Marketing Pro community because I was able to access their Ignition Coaching. They have professional business coaches who are there to really help you out so that you don’t get overwhelmed, you don’t get confused and you don’t feel like you don’t know where to turn.
By gaining access to one of these Ignition coaches they are going to set you straight and set you on the right path.
Reason #3 – What Happens If You Do Take Action
Now maybe by reading this you might be shaking your head NO or maybe you’re shaking your head YES but let me explain myself a little bit why taking action is preventing you from taking action. Pretty crazy, don’t you think?
Let’s talk about fear for a second.
There are a lot of different fears out there that could have been stopping you from taking action:
- Fear of Failure
- Fear of Rejection
- Fear of Looking Bad
- Fear of Losing Money (this is a BIG one)
- Fear of Success (you’ve read that right)
You may ask yourself, “What happens if I get people on my team and I don’t know how to lead them?” Many times this stops people from having the success that they want and they stop people from taking action.
There’s also of picking up the phone. This is also a big one for those who are getting started. Fear of making a video or maybe not looking so good or sounding dumb. Fear of putting yourself out there on social media. Fear that people won’t like what you say.
But the problem is that when you dwell on these fears they will become bigger than life and in the end you refuse to take action because it’s easier not to do it than facing your fears.
Fear then kills your dreams that just about anything else in this world. You are just afraid to take that plunge, to take the chance that things will work out because you’re fearful of what might have happen.
Now the question is:
How to we get through it? How do we get through all these fears? How do we get into action?
You can pretty much narrow it down to 2 questions that you can use that will get you through your fear and into action.
Question #1 – “What’s The Worst Thing That Can Happen?”
This is a huge question.
If your friends and family make fun of you about your business what’s the worst thing that can happen? They will probably disrespect you but you’re not going to die, right?
If you make your first video and someone makes a sarcastic remark about your video; maybe you don’t look good or you don’t sound good or whatever that comment might be, what’s the worst thing that can happen? If somebody makes a negative comment you can just delete it. NO BIG DEAL.
What’s the worst thing that can happen if you pick up the phone and maybe that lead you to talk to that don’t want to join your business. Maybe they will just get mad at you or maybe worse they hang up on you. Well you’re not going to hear from that person again, right?
Whenever you’re facing something that you don’t know and you’re afraid to do it, you’re fearful what might happen if you do it, ask that question,
“What’s the worst thing that can happen?”
It’s rarely as a big deal as you make it. The fear you have over anything in your business is rarely as big as you’re making it out to be.
Question #2 – “What’s The Best Thing That Can Happen?”
Imagine yourself getting over your fear of the phone. What’s the best thing that can happen while you call your leads?
Some will say, “Yes!” Some will say, “No!” but your business starts making money, you’re team begins expanding and your life starts to get great.
When you think about it, it all comes down from picking up the phone for the first time, getting through it and realizing that it’s not the end of the world when a person says, “No!”
Imagine yourself getting over your fear of making a video. Maybe you want to do video marketing but you’re afraid of what you will look like or what you will sound like.
What if you make your videos and people love them? What if you’re starting to get leads from them like crazy and you’re making sales and you’re making money all from one video you’ve put out months ago.
Now you have a video that is working for you 24-7 all your videos are working for you 24-7 and life is amazing because you took the courage, you got through the fear of making that first video.
What about ads?
What if you’re afraid of losing money with placing ads?
Rather than asking that question ask yourself, “What would happen if your ads where amazing?”
Leads were pouring in and sales were pouring in. Your ROI was tremendous and you made money on every single ad that you’ve placed; how would that change your business?
What’s the best thing that could have happen in these scenarios?
Amazing things can happen and it’s all because you’ve got through the fear and you did it anyway.
I believe that fear is what stops most of us in this business from realizing our dreams and to see the success that we deserve.
When you think it like this way and you really start looking and thinking of it and analyzing it, you realize that your fears are not as big as you think they are and the consequences of doing something are not as big as you think they are if they don’t work.
