Persistencein pursuing success in MLM is one of the traits that you will have to develop as you build your business. Though others might disagree with me on this, I tend to consider myselfa relatively bright guy. But there have been times when my comprehension of concepts have alluded me for days, weeks, and sometimes years. I try to attribute those instances of dullness to the possibility that perhaps I was too busy with other projects or overly focused on something else. Sometimes it might be your mindset that prevents you from seeing the obvious, and sometimes it's just that there is so much to wrap your head around.But the truth is that sometimes we are just not ready to see and understand all of the pieces. Our minds are just not ready. Yesterday, I decided to review some training material that I bought over 3 years ago. And even though I had watched and rewatched this training material numerous times over the years, yesterday everything just clicked. I found myself having “Aha” moments over and over again, and hitting myself on the head like… REALLY!
Now, one of my best traits is that I have a stick-to-it-tiveness that won't allow me to quit on anything.It's a stubborn reluctance to give up. Once I get my teeth into something I'm like a pit bull. In some cases that trait has served me well, and in others… well it caused at least a little pain. I guess that the gist of it is that I don't quit. I don't give up. And that doggedness allows me to return back to a problem, a task, a commitment over and over again until eventually I have those “Aha” moments, those breakthroughs.
As you pursue success in MLM, I challenge you to take on that trait. Don't give up. When it comes to marketing your business on the internet, there are just tons of little pieces ( branding, marketing, email autoresponders, blogging, social media marketing, video marketing , etc. etc ) involved that make the whole money machine work. You might be a super-genius and all of this stuff might just fall into place or you immediately, but if you are like me, and most of the Gurus out there, this is a process that takes time. There are very few overnight successes.
So if it doesn't all come together for you immediately, just do as Og Mandino suggests in his book, “The Greatest Salesman” – repeat to yourself daily… “I WILL PERSIST UNTIL I SUCCEED.”
One way to develop this trait is to keep in mind exactly why you started this journey. Why are you pursuing success in MLM? Perhaps you hate your job and dream of the freedom that being your own boss will bring you. Perhaps, you want to put your kids through college or take your spouse on that dream vacation. Whatever your original BIG WHY is, keep it in mind. Whenever you feel like quitting, just remember why your started! You will never know how close you are to succeeding if you give up!
