4 Mindsets to Avoid and 1 Mindset You Must Have, Develop and Seek
#1- Lottery or the get-rich-quick Mindset
I was watching a webinar for the a few minutes the other night and there was a guest talking about how some people just don’t realize that Network Marketing is hard, really, really hard work. Now, there are people out there who expect t a pay day immediately and it’s not like that.
That’s why some people fall for these far fetch scams that offer ‘get paid now from the comfort of your couch’ scams. These people then blame the Network Marketing Industry for their lack of Success.
#2- Job Mindset
Now, these Network Marketers are hard workers. They have a strong work ethic but don’t a Business mindset. They expect to get paid for the time and effort they put in. But as Jim Rohn said, “You don’t get paid for the hour, you get paid by the value you bring to the Hour.”
I had a buddy who me he didn’t understand Network Marketing. I ask him questions as to what he didn’t understand. He ask me good questions. The conversation went back and forth for a long while. But to my pleasant surprise, he knew and understood a good deal about Network Marketing. In the end, he asked the question that cleared that got to the bottom of his confusion. He asked when does one get paid? I told him that depends on him and what he brings to the Market place. It took be fast or it can take months. He didn’t like that, he wanted to get paid for the work put in. His answer cleared up for me exactly why he said he didn’t understand Network Marketing. He wanted to get paid for the effort and time he put into reaching people not the value he brought to people. He has a Job Mindset, not a Business Mindset So the question you must yourself is do I want a job or a Business.
#3- Scarcity Mindset
This negative mindset will add stress to anyone’s Life. Network marketers with this mindset will always see someone else’s win or progress as a lost for them. In their mindset, they believe there is a limited supply of leads, money, opportunity, etc. You can tell who these Network marketers are by the language they use, “John always is getting so many Leads and sales he is leaving nothing for the rest of us.” Or “There is only so much to go around.”
This Network Marketer might also demonstrate Scarcity Mindset by their lack of Generosity, they won’t share another Network marketer’s post, Face Book Lives or content because they are worried they might lose a lead to them. Don’t allow this mindset to affect your team.
#4- Quitter’s Mindset
These Network Marketers don’t last long. You barely get to know their names before they quit. Why? As soon as, things get tough they can’t handle the pressure or don’t have the fortitude to push through the dry spells of no leads or sales.
This Network Marketers can’t handle criticism because of a low self-esteem, self-worth image, or negative attitude.
Some Network Marketers quit just because they have never known how to win or how to develop a winner’s mindset. Winners lose all the time but they don’t quit.
#5- Success Mindset
Successful Network Marketers develop and maintain a Success Mindset. They believe in growth, not instant winnings. They believe there is more than enough to go around for everybody.
There are future Network Marketers being born every day, graduating high school and college very year, retiring every day, being laid off, leaving the corporate world, being discharged from the military, etc. The supply is endless!
The Success mindset has a focus, if not Laser focus, mind. They set their mind on a Goal, mission, or routine tasks and get it done. They don’t get easily sidetracked by bumps in the road, new company launches, or shiny object syndrome.
The Success mindset builds teams, builds people up, brings confidence and a can do attitude to the any room. They are Driven, determined and unstoppable.
There are a million ways from Sunday to describe them but the Best way is by Calling them, Winners!
Keep it Real, Keep the Faith and God Bless,
