Don’t Compare Yourself to Others in
Your Network Marketing Business
A big mistake we often make in our network marketing business is – We look at others in the company, often who have been in longer than we have and we begin to compare ourselves to these other people, in many cases, comparing ourselves to others without even sort of knowing if it’s apples to apples or apples to oranges.
Comparison is always a dangerous thing, and especially in your Network Marketing business. Most of the time, things are not quite what they seem.
We see fast starters seemingly shoot to the top of companies; we see people rewarded with bonuses greater than ours; we see names grace the top sponsor lists; and we look at ourselves and ask “Why not me? What is wrong with me?”
Here is a survival tip for your business and life in general
Stop Comparing Yourself to ANYONE. Compete only with yourself and your own personal best.
It’s easy to look at a former super model on the cover of the magazine and think how nice for her that she has bypassed all aging that goes along with being 50 plus years old. We look at a fast starter and think that he/she must know some special skill or have some secret; his/her friends must like him/her better.
Here’s the thing – there is most always a story behind the story; the one that you and I never see.
Models and actors have the benefit of airbrushing; and most fast starters have a success story from before, that we don’t know about and don’t take the time to research. Top income earners in Network Marketing pay their dues somewhere; ask any top income earner. And, everyone’s life circumstances are different.
Some people have a $500 monthly budget with which to run their business, and assuming they invest is wisely and take action on it, they will likely have faster results than the person spending $25. The person who makes their list of everyone they know; send out the friends and family letter; drops off a packet and some products to sample; hosts a BOSS or networks the business in some way consistently will have better and faster results than the person who gets out into cold market right away.
We all have a learning curve and a process to go through in business success.
Compare yourself today to the action steps you took yesterday. How do you feel about that? What can you improve upon?
To quote Eleanor Roosevelt – “You must do the thing you think you cannot do.” And, to add to it – “Over and Over again until your results shoot you to the moon!”
