“I could be successful if only…”
It’s time to banish the “if” forever. There is only one person that owns your success, and that is YOU. So if, for example, your partner is not as invested in your success as you are, will you then decide not to move forward? It’s your decision, but I sure hope not. You can’t change your partner’s attitude, most likely, but you can change your own. And I’ve seen more than once a partner come around once success happens.
But if you’re still waiting for approval before you can succeed, you’ll never get there.
Make a plan this year that does not rely on the “ifs”. Find the people who will be supportive no matter what, and create a plan that works with that. Don’t allow yourself to be held back. There are PLENTY of people in direct selling who have been successful despite the direst of circumstances. They didn’t wait for the optimum environment. Rather, they decided to be successful anyway.
Direct sales is systems driven, which pretty much means that any monkey can master the mechanics. What makes some people so much more successful than others? The willingness to do it. Real success is a mindset. It’s being willing to set goals, and do whatever it takes to achieve them. One more phone call. One more party. One more opportunity interview. Whatever it takes to reach the goal in the time allotted.
Don’t hold yourself back by waiting for someone else’s permission. YOU are the deciding factor.
Will you decide to succeed or fail in 2011?
