As I remember, before I had a network marketing mindset, it was massively frustrating to work hard at building my business
We have all been there and somehow at one point in our network marketing careers or in this case our Doterra careers, we suddenly realize, “what am I not doing?”
Most of the information available in books and online explaining how to run a MLM business is great, however they often forget to mention the most important factor that make one person successful and someone else not.
Which is the individual running the business and the mindset needed to become successful
Why do we need a network marketing mindset?
The excitement of starting a Doterra business with all the possibilities that comes with it, is great for the first few months until reality slowly starts to dawn on you:
- The enroller is supportive and knowledgeable
- Doterra is well run and their products are just the best
- And, you really want Doterra success
However, why is your business not moving forward?
- Firstly, ask yourself, “Do I have the right mindset to success for Doterra or network marketing?”
- And if not, how can I get it?
Running a Doterra business is like running a marathon, which most runners and athletes will understand is 90% mental and 10% physical.
Everyday you work on your business, putting one foot in front of the other, but your mental strength will be the thing that pushes you forward when you feel you cannot continue.
Many years ago, I watch a dear friend of mine during a bad time in his life become successful in a network marketing business. When I asked, “how he managed to become successful while others were not even though his life was a mess?” He told me, “Even though things are bad, people in my life still needed me, so I needed to change my attitude, become self-motivated, have desire and discipline to make this business work.”
After pondering his answer for many years I put it down to his own mindset to success and turning a bad situation into good. Over the years we get together for a chat and over that time I begun to understand some of the key points that made him successful. So, below I have shared them with you.
The 5 keys gain the right mindset to success
- Socialize with successful people:
- Consider this, if you socialize with people who are going nowhere guess who else is going nowhere.
- Find people to inspire you to become more that you are and gain that success you have always desired.
- Now, ask yourself if the people you surround yourself with lift you up or cause you to doubt yourself.
- If they bring you down, what will you do about that?
- Never stop learning something new:
- Learning is about developing new skills which will help one succeed in Doterra.
- All network marketers regardless how long they have been in the industry need to home new skills to keep on top of their game.
- Learning helps the network marketer to become a more interesting person, hence an interesting person to be involved with.
- These new skills will give you the knowledge to become a leader with a vision and the mindset for success.
- As you develop, your mind grows and adjusts accordingly giving you the confidence to interact with prospects interested in your Doterra business
- There is no such this as “can’t”:
- Nobody has succeeded in anything when they start the conversation with, “can’t”
- I have spoken with many people that said they really wanted to be successful in MLM, but they would start by saying:
- I can’t talk to people about my Doterra business
- I can’t do sales
- I can’t find the time
- Beginning a dialogue with yourself that starts with “can’t” means you have predetermined your chances of success with failure.
- Limiting what you do in life by saying “I can’t” is counter productive and the death of personal and business success
- Refer to limited beliefs and the “fixed mindset vs. growth mindset” argument (Google search)
- Build a support system:
- Who is supporting you?
- Who is helping you to build your Doterra business?
- Having a support system can be the difference between success and failure
- People close to you may not support your efforts or understand why you are involved with Doterra, so surround yourself with positive like-minded people
- Contact your Doterra sponsor, mentor and use online groups of like-minded people who are all interested in becoming successful in Doterra
- Establishing a good support system will help you develop a success mindset for your business
- Create a positive success routine:
- Have you looked at the top network marketers and said to yourself, “I want some of that!”
- Don’t look at what they have, look at their daily routine. What are they doing everyday to be successful
- When you see someone who is fit, slim and healthy don’t think how good they look. Think about their daily habits that are needed to achieve this result.
- The positive routine philosophy can be transferred into your Doterra business and life.
- What are the top earners doing on a daily basis? Find out! Do something similar in your daily life.
- The main habits of the most successful network marketers is persistence (Never give up)
How to change your mindset to success
Why do we hold ourselves back from the success and income we really want and deserve? It is a complex question, but in many cases the answer is simple. We are being asked to move out of our comfort zone in an area of possible failure, embarrassment and not comfortable.
Some of us are born with no fear of failure and a confident mindset, but others need to develop these skills overtime.
Here are some tools that may help you develop and empower yourself towards Doterra success:
- Write down the things you say you can’t do, so you can own them
- Write down why you feel it is important for you to change them
- Now write down an empowered version of yourself without the things you can’t do
- Visualize yourself so you can see your life with this new empowered version of you and all its benefits
- Use positive support to find your inner strength.
- Step out of your comfort zone (One new thing everyday)
- Work on your personal development to help you empower yourself and your mind.
Have you found what is hold you back from being successful in your Doterra business?
Now, the most important question, what are you willing to do about it?
Every time you change and branch out of your comfort zone and push the limits of what you believe you can do, you are moving one step closer towards a network marketing mindset that will give you Doterra success.
