Why My Downline Is Failing...
To My Friends @ BetterNetworker...
Please... Make sure you comment and/or vote... =)
Over the past few weeks, I have received over 2 dozen emails from a member in my downline. In these sets of emails, the gentleman has done nothing but complain and compile excuses as to why is not succeeding. Some legitimate, but most not.
The reasons have been varied, but the theme is common.
"Poor Me" and "It's somebody else's fault why I am not succeeding".
It all comes down to a 'poor me', and 'it's somebody elses fault' mindset.
Mindset will kill you in this biz, or any biz for that matter. I thought I'd share this for you folks, in case you're experiencing something similar.
Keep in mind, our company is still relatively small and new. But it's growing pretty rapidly. =)
I hope this helps you in your endeavors:
Why My Downline Is Failing
Alright brother. I have to level with you, because that is what I do.
Your attitude is the only thing that is bullshit lately. Over the past few weeks I have heard just about every excuse from you that exists as to why you cannot sell any product. From simple spelling mistakes to incompetent leadership, to a few friends saying they're not interested.
If these things stop you from moving forward, and weigh on your mind this heavily I’m going to have to say, I don’t think sales is your thing anymore.
If Nuriche were impossible to sell because of incompetent leadership, I would not have a downline of nearly 30 people.
If Nuriche were impossible to sell because of typos and lack of sales copy, I would not have 2000 GV monthly.
If your friend determined the fate of companies, I would be very afraid – as his emails have contained numerous typos, zero positivity, and a general outlook that would have me questioning his friendship.
I like you Bill. I like you a lot.
I think your potential is great, I think your drive and determination, and most of all your passion are something to be aspired to.
But I have never met someone in sales with a more negative, excuse-filled, jaded attitude.
I’m not saying these things to insult you, or make you feel any way specifically. It is my hope, that you will see the truth in the matter, and adjust accordingly.
You have told me that your financial situation sucks.
That is nobody’s fault. Nobody's but your own.
One year ago, I was over $40,000 in debt. My wife and I had HORRIBLE credit, and were forced to move in with her parents.
Talk about embarrassment.
At first, I wanted to blame the ‘evil credit card companies’ for their unfair lending, high interest rates, and impossible debt load that ‘they’ let me accumulate.
Then I realized something… All of the excuses in the world were not going to take me any place but down. They would only lead to further negative thoughts, and zero to negative results.
I knew that I needed change, I also – at this point – realized the only one who could change my situation, the only one who could change me – was me.
As soon as I stopped with the excuses as to why I couldn’t make more money, as soon as I stopped with the excuses with why I was in that situation my life changed.
As soon as I started to think ‘how can I make more money’, and started to think ‘how can I change my situation’ my life started to drastically change.
I made some tough decisions, we moved in with in-laws that hated my guts, I sold my truck (what was left of a debunked landscape company) – got a job as a server.
I hate serving.
I truly do. I took a 5 year break from it, because of the abuse that one receives from angry customers full of reasons and excuses as to why a poor attitude is okay.
Over the past year, I’ve realized – it’s not serving that I hate, it’s the shitty attitudes of the people who abuse people who are there to help them.
One year later, I am completely debt free. One year later, I am moving out of my in-laws house, and to the city my wife and I have only dreamed of moving to for 5 years.
We’re moving to San Diego at the end of this month.
I’m helping her set up her business, and intend to plug away at mine full time.
One year later, my mental attitude and clarity are at a point I never would have reached had I not left excuses and reasons ‘why not’ far behind me.
I’m still working on my wife, who still lets those a few negative thoughts into her airspace – but she’s getting better, and because of this her life is getting better daily.
Why am I telling you all this? In hopes that you will see the light. All the excuses, and all the reasons why not in the world are not going to help you. They are not going to help your situation.
These thoughts emit from your very being. They are seen by the people that interact with you, and effect the results that you see in your relationships, in business, and your own personal doings.
I believe in you Bill. But your attitude needs to change. Dramatically.
Change is hard when you think it is.
Change is easy when you think it is.
The problem is, you need to want to change. If you don’t truly desire the change, if you don’t see the problems – you cannot solve them. But the very SECOND that you realize the problem, and start asking yourself “How can I solve this problem?” THAT is when your life will start to dramatically improve.
I hope the best for you
name edit. But at this juncture – you have two choices:
1. You can change your attitude, and start coming up with reasons why you CAN do this, and finding ways to sell and create awesome copy to push this product like no other.
2. You can choose to be angry at me for this email. You can say ‘my upline is against me’ or that what I have said in out of place, untrue, and it truly is somebody elses fault that you are not having success in life.
You know which one I am hoping for, but I can only lead you to the water, you have to take the first drink.
