I've come to the conclusion that it is the following:
1. Value in you will attract value to you.
What I mean by this is very simple and it is something that I had to look right in the mirror after all the techniques and everything else. I realised something and when I realised just this, everything changed.
I came to me as a question and this question woke me up big time. You ready for this question? Ok, here it is.
"Why would anyone want to join YOU?"
If YOU are the prospect, the leads, the customer...why would YOU join YOU?
I started investing in myself and to be the most valuable in the team and where I am at right now.
You want leaders? Then you need to become one. You want qualified leads, then you need to be qualified for your own business, and qualify for your VISION that you want to happen...everyday.
The question isn't how to build a solid downline. The question is why would a downline follow you in the first place? Why would anyone want to join you in the first place?
In all questions, the answer is universal. It always goes back to the mirror we stare into everyday, when we wake up and everynight, before we go to sleep. The place many don't look into until they go through pain, struggle and they forced to look into themselves.
I didn't have trouble sponsoring because it was winter, summer, or upline this and upline that, and anything else, 8 years ago.
It was because I lacked value years back. So I invested in value.
Because you dont earn what you want in Network Marketing. You earn what you learn in Network Marketing. (ps..not my quote by the way) but it's true.
People are going to come to you because of the value in you. That you got the value, the leadership and this is going to show in how you yourself do the business. In applying the knowledge you learn. In attracting people to you.
In having everything in place. In building it ready and they'll come. So if they do come, you ready? You got the knowledge, the education system in place, the value when they need training, leadership?
Ready in here. In that mind, self image, the way to walk, talk and deal it without fear of loss and who joins and who doesn't. Is it ready, in there? Heart mind and soul?
You see, people are attracted to the leader who has more value and status than them, or equivalent. It's how it is. It's human physcology, which beats the heck out of long debates on benefits on products, company this and company that.
So, if you want top earners, qualified prospects, people who will build then....you be that person first and do what top earners do even if you are on your own right now.
Organisations do not build a leader but a leader will build an organisation. Become what you want to be and in that 'becoming' it will attract what you already are.
Belief always comes before result. Always.
