Action bridges the gap between your network marketing business goals and your results. Your motivation governs the activity you undertake.
For a few people, their motive is governed by WHY they are in business. The more powerful the WHY, the easier it is to take the required action for your network marketing business success. Your reason gives you that extra push, so you never give up on your business and you always perform the related duties at an optimal level.
For certain people, this is easily feasible because they are very skilful at crafting very strong motivational reasons for being in business. These people simply let this inspiration drive them, and they always carry out their network marketing tasks optimally.
For other people though, maintaining that top performance when performing their home based business responsibilities proves to be quite a herculean task. One day, you could be psyched to do your very best and the next day, you’re a totally different person; who’s quick to put off the task till another date.
So what do these people do to narrow the distance between their network marketing business goals and their results?
Let’s take professional athletes for example. They typically have to endure very long, gruelling seasons of preparation, hard work and very competitive fixtures in their respective sporting disciplines.
They have to perform at a peak level, whether it’s working out, or game time, and they have to repeat this routine for the entire length of the season and even beyond. Anything below this and they weaken their perceived value to their team and to other prospective teams.
Are these athletes always motivated ALL the time? Indeed they are human, and they must have certain days when they just don’t feel like it.
Let’s face it, no matter how much you love doing something, there are some facets of it you would rather not do at all.
In sports, you sometimes have to spend time in the gym, the pool, on the track or in the weight room. Then there’s time for Public Relations work, and taking care of the business side of things. Don’t forget that there are still the competitive sporting events themselves, where you have to be in ‘The Zone’.
I don’t know about you, but to do this consistently takes a lot more than mere drive.
After all, motivation is based on your confidence in your capacity to do something. If you are short of that confidence, you will not have the needed motivation.
When it comes to your MLM business, you have to deal with potential customers, advertising and marketing (which include a mass of strategies), telephone sales and recruiting, copywriting, and so many other aspects of your home based business.
Staying on top of the tasks required of you in your business, consistently warrants that you be in total control of your mind and you be ready to do anything and everything, no matter how big or small the task, or how much you feel like doing it or not.
That being said, how do you perform your MLM business tasks at your peak, always?
When pro athletes speak of being in ‘The Zone’, they are performing at their highest level. At this level, all parts of them are in total cooperation, working towards a common goal. By this statement, I am saying a person is composed of more than just his/her consciously controlled mind and muscles.
When you acknowledge that you are composed of more than just your conscious mind, but also have spiritual, mental, psychological and subconscious aspects to you, that’s when you can see that you are a sum total of more than just your conscious mind, with all parts working in cooperation, towards a common goal.
In such a case, you would not need to do some chanting or auto-suggestion exercises and put on a ‘game face’, to keep you driven to complete the task at hand. You just have to gain the cooperation of all parts of you, including your subconscious mind.
When you can visualize yourself as a being composed of many parts, you will see that it’s not essential to keep you driven so you perform your network marketing business tasks optimally. You just need the cooperation of all parts of you.
Clinical psychologists put it clearly, when they describe hypnosis as a language you use to communicate with, and gain the cooperation of your subconscious mind.
If you’ve ever looked into clinical psychology, then you know that it’s possible to eliminate acrophobia (fear of heights) from a person who has suffered this ailment for a very long time. This cure is never based on getting someone hyped, psyched or motivated. It is based on gaining the cooperation of the person’s subconscious mind.
When you can secure the cooperation of your subconscious mind, you can achieve anything and getting into ‘The Zone’ that athletes speak about (with reference in this case, to your network marketing business) becomes second nature.
You do not have to rely on auto suggestion, or chanting to yourself and telling yourself you can do it each and every day. You just have to rely on your subconscious mind; working in cooperation with you, toward a common goal.
Have you ever noticed how many big-name pro athletes use hypnosis as part of their training? That should tell you something.
However you get to connect with your subconscious mind, gaining this cooperation is vital to your MLM business success and performing your home business responsibilities at a peak level.
The next time you’re contemplating performing a task for your home business, and thinking where you’re going to come up with the necessary inspiration to start, remember that motivation is not a pre-requisite to get going; gain the cooperation of your subconscious mind, and you can be in ‘The Zone’.
