Okay, okay. I can already hear you saying in that determined voice that you just know I’m wrong. After all, it’s all about making the sale, and getting people to come around to your way of thinking.
You most likely don’t realize that convincing isn’t really the right word to use. In fact, if you’re working hard to convince people to listen to you, then you’ll be spinning your wheels a lot.
Here are some wise words to remember. These are the ABSOLUTE top 5 skills of leaders in network marketing. Otherwise, you’ll fail.
- Fortitude. No matter what happens your attitude should remain the same. This means that no matter how bad things get, you should keep plugging away. It is never easy, but it’s always worth it in the end to keep moving and keep influencing, and to keep working as though you don’t have anyone on your team. You cannot wait until you grow a large team to get moving and stay active. You have to keep pressing on no matter what, and no matter how tough things seem. Put everything into practice that you are supposed to put into practice and keep working as unto the Lord and NOT unto men.
- Build morale. Do you build morale wherever you go or do you tear people down? If you want to have influence and you want for people to regard you as having something worth saying, then it’s time to build morale. It’s vital that you keep a positive attitude. Network marketing doesn’t die under any circumstances, because there is always something to be done regardless. You should focus on cultivating relationships and building morale among team members. They’ll regard you as a leader, because that is what leaders do!
- Don’t devote yourself to the wrong people. All too often, we as human beings devote our time and energy to the wrong people. We focus too much of our efforts on the wrong people, and most often it’s the ones that aren’t interested in building a business or future. I’m not saying that you don’t teach them or invest time in them, but what I am saying is that this relates to recruiting. If you are trying to sign people up just for the sake of getting a sign-up or win a trip, don’t do it. Ultimately, it will frustrate you and lead you down the path of babysitting. Always make a wise assessment and see where you should invest most of your time and energy before you do. This is your business and you are a leader!
- Honor others. It’s vital that you work at honoring others. Showing respect and honor to others is a key component of leadership. Whether you realize this or not, you should know that honor is the number area in which network marketers fail. They don’t honor those who are leaders, and they fail to honor those who can invest in them and share valuable knowledge. Always show respect to others and respect their knowledge. Those who have done the work and have gotten results can help you unlock what is inside you.
- Be ethical. Whether you know it or not, you may fail in being ethical. Character is who you are when no one is looking. Be mindful of your character, and know that those around you are always watching. They are ALWAYS When you step out as a leader, be transparent. This doesn’t mean that you have to tell your life story and deep secrets, but if you’re teaching on something or an area you have failed at in business, be open about that to teach others what not to do.
I hope that you found this uber helpful. I know that I’m always looking for great examples of leadership, and my hope is that I can be that for you as well. I’m always looking for ways I can help people and lead them into creating more wealth.
