To say that impatience will kill you may be a little extreme, but it can certainly damage your dreams. After all, life is so fast these days and so many people want things straight away. This is obviously not about everyone, but how many people do you know who want things to happen quickly? It’s all about NOW with a lot of people. I know that I’ve been guilty of impatience and this has damaged my progress.
So many of us try to do the selling and wonder why we don’t get the success we are looking for. The way to make a difference is to learn effective promotion instead and point your prospect to the presentation that will be given by the more experienced marketers. When you do this well, you won’t even NEED to learn how to sell.
There is a lot to be said for your philosophy and how it affects your very being. When you think about it, the in depth thinking behind a “philosophy” can lead to a lot of confusion, but when you put it into simple terms, then the sense of having a philosophy that drives your thinking to be positive and direct in your business and life is a big benefit to you.
I’ve been asked many times by people “what motivates you to get up in the morning?” There have been several answers based on the time of my life and the type of work I was doing. Sometimes it was due to the fact that I would get more done and earn more money, or because I always get more done in the morning and so it’s better to get up and out to work or maybe it was just because of a weak bladder! Now I am driven to get up, not just for the purpose of business, but to help others to have success too.
When you work in online marketing the importance for you to under promise over deliver is paramount. When you over deliver on value your prospects will love you for it. You will be a lot more attractive to people when you have products or training that is perceived to have more value than you charge for them. Also if your initial value shows great quality even though it may be free, your reputation will grow and grow.
Life is a place where a wise choice is required every now and again. I’ve recently been reading The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson. In the preface to the book proper, there are 3 short stories that are relevant to so many things. Among them was a story of a wealthy dying man with twin sons. He gave them a choice of 2 things and then sent them away to think about it.
In these days of so much expectation and pressure to do so much, it’s more evident that we should all take note of the old saying “if at first you don’t succeed”. Because of the noticeable “rush” of life in general, the opportunities are all there but also the need to be patient and persistent is something we all need to be aware of.
There are so many opportunities around these days, but all of us need to understand that the opportunity of helping others to succeed is everywhere too. When working in the home business arena and looking to build a team that will help you to grow and develop your own business, it’s your job to be the helper. Many people are crying out for guidance and since helping others is part of our remit, then we should take every opportunity afforded to us to do it.
Are you up for the challenge of expanding your business? Whatever type of business you have, online or traditional retail there is a challenge to be met that you need to be able to deal with. If you work from home the possibilities of expanding your business are endless and yet the overheads are still kept small. In a traditional business, the prospects are far more challenging and I hope to distinguish between the both here.
If you were to ask any person who has a family, I’ll bet when asked what they want most, they would tell you that it’s more time freedom to spend with their spouse and children. Isn’t this what we all desire? Trouble is, although there are so many who want more time to spend in this way, there are relatively few who will have that luxury and have the means to live a great life at the same time. Time freedom is one of the main marketing positives for those who want to have a home business, either in network marketing or an internet business based around an affiliate marketing system.
