This is the number one reason why new distributors leave Network Marketing. It takes them out by the thousands, and can be a cancer to your MLM business, if you are not careful. Just about all new distributors go through this challenge.
So will you if you haven’t already. We call it the “MLM Emotional Roller Coaster”, and it can be an interesting ride during the frustrating times in this MLM business.
You will be high as a kite on excitement on week, and then next week low as whale dung. All because of your emotions and disappointments.
You will be disappointed by people, and what you think is going to happen, but doesn’t, and it is part of this Network Marketing business.
A lot of folks cannot handle the Emotional Dynamics of this business, and your emotions can really be tested, but it is not innate to MLM. It is innate to being an entrepreneur and starting any business.
You must learn to let the downs be not so down, and the highs be not so high. This will give you an “Emotional balance” which will make your new enterprise more stable in your working it.
The M.O.N.E.Y Principle of MLM Success.
There is a Principle I have been training on for years, and helped a lot of our distributors, as well as myself to get through some rough times.
I call it The M.O.N.E.Y. Principle of Success in Network Marketing, and it is one that you can take to the bank.
What is the SECRET for Networkers to create a LOT of MONEY in MLM?
M.O.N.E.Y. stands for:
Management Of Negative Emotions-Yours.
DID YOU GET THAT?
Management Of NEGATIVE EMOTIONS-YOURS! In Network Marketing!
It’s all about managing what is trying to manage you! It is all about contolling what is trying to control you. It is about directing what is trying to direct you and your business.
And understand this:
Whoever is controlling your emotions — will control your business.
ARE YOU LISTENING?
WHOEVER is CONTROLLING YOUR EMOTIONS, CONTROLS YOU and your MLM business!
YOU ARE YOUR BUSINESS!!
Setbacks in MLM will happen and it will create major disappointment and discouragement, and you MUST not let it affect you long term. Sure, you will get down a little as you are human. That is all part of the business, but you always must bounce back. Every setback becomes a comeback.
The Setback Solution in MLM.
There is no disappointment so strong that 3 new Network Marketing Distributor sign ups cannot handle.
I had a Network Marketing millionaire tell me last year that she was so discouraged her first 2 years that she nearly quit 3 times, but she hung on to the dream, and learned a VERY VALUABLE Secret:
ALL Negative emotions are TEMPORARY, and they will subside.
Once she learned that, she knew that she was “In a Mood” and that would pass eventually and she would go to work harder than ever.
There are exceptions of course, but very few. Most new MLM distributors do go through a myriad of emotions the first year, and most never learn to control them. You must decide that what emotions would keep you down for 3 hours, will keep you down for 3 minutes. What used to keep you down for a week, will keep you down for a day. What used to keep you down for a month, only keeps you down for a week or less. Focus on becoming “emotionally quick.” Every emotion that is negative quickly disappears from your life, and is replaced with a positive one.
How do you control your lows that will come in this business?
1) Talk to Your Upline about how they handled the negative emotions.
2) Read MLM books and continue to learn new ideas and concepts.
3) Ask “What is worth learning from this?”
4) Know that WHO is SUPPOSED to be in your business will be.
5) Know WHO is NOT supposed to be, will not be.
6) Let yourself grieve for a bit if you need to do that. Call someone who has been there and get some understanding from experience.
7) Get back to work asap. Work MASSIVELY to replace the one who “got away.”
8) Continue to pour into your mind stories of those who have succeeded, and the tactics, strategies, and beliefs that developed that Success. Then copy those tactics, and beliefs.
You have to control your emotions in Network Marketing, because they will determine about 80% of your first initial success, then they will determine about 80% of the rest of your success when you start your Network Marketing and MLM career.
