One of the most important things required these days (as always in business) is a goals template. If you have a home based network marketing business, your own personal goals should include helping others succeed. Why? Because you need to be a team player and be prepared to be a LEADER and helping others in your team to succeed will also build your own business.
How to adopt a workable goals template.
This is pretty simple really – you can get many templates from the internet in different layouts for different types of goal setting. What you need for yourself in order for your business to grow faster is a daily planner that is focused on your daily activities. You must also make sure that the template includes your objectives and the completion date so you can hold yourself accountable. This will enable you to monitor your progress and, should you need a change of strategy or need to put more focus on a particular task, you can do this.
Because everything is written down and in front of you, you can easily adapt and change or “crank things up” if you need to do that.
The importance of a goals template to help others
“Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others. Unsuccessful people are always asking “What’s in it for me?” – Brian Tracy
It’s basic human nature to think of “what’s in it for me?” The important thing is to rise above that and seek opportunity and ways to help others to succeed. You must be willing AND able to help others to find opportunity and be LEADERS too. The more leaders you have in your team, the more success will be achieved.
This mindset will attract more people to you and help you to be more successful, so this change of thought process will be what’s in it for you.
Being the type of person who has the mindset of “what’s in it for me?” is more likely to be considered a more selfish individual and this is not attractive to others around you.
“What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal” – Albert Pike
Work to be the best you can be for both yourself AND others and you will be more fulfilled and achieve much more.
Your goals template should include connection with people
How do you improve your connection with people and add more to your contact list?
As a network marketer one of your main tasks is to network and add people to your prospect list. These days, with the advent of social media and Facebook, Twitter and more, there is so much more opportunity to find more people to connect with without hounding your close friends and family who may not have the same interests as you and therefore won’t share your enthusiasm. The social media sites give you the opportunity to find others who have similar interests to you and connect with them.
The most important thing to remember is to make the connection and build the relationship first. Find common ground with the person you want to connect with and you can then ask questions and chat with them about their interests. You will find out things that you can help them with and therefore build trust and develop a better relationship as friends. Don’t force things. It’s important to be patient and not be “pushy” because this will help the relationship to flourish and your prospective new team member will more likely work with you for a long time.
The most important thing to remember is that people will join people, not a company. Also people will join people who they know, like and trust. So BE that person.
These few points are just a small portion of what is required when setting out your own goals template, but they are vital to having a more successful home based network marketing business.
To the future,
