Personal development isn’t just the key to success in network marketing, it’s the key to life.
You crawl, you walk, you run.
You learn how to tie a shoe.
You learn how to throw a ball and to catch it.
You learn how to read, how to study and how to absorb new information.
You learn how to show up on time, how to set a goal and how to complete a task.
Every step you take along the path of your life has been either a step forward in personal development or you have been running in place. You can’t accomplish things you’ve never accomplished unless you learn the skills and the mindsets that will allow you to do it.
This is true of anything you want to achieve.
Why are we so surprised?
So why are so many of us surprised to learn that you have to have a program in personal development if you want to reach the highest levels in your network marketing business? Why do we think that we can come in to network marketing and be making a six figure income in six months?
I think there are two reasons for that.
One is that many of us don’t consciously pursue personal development before we come into network marketing. Unless we’ve been formally taught something as part of a class or training program at work, most of us just kind of coast through our lives after we finish school. We stop actively learning things on our own.
The second, and I think more harmful reason is that so many of us make it sound like it’s a cake walk to come into this business and earn a ton of money. So we or our new distributors are surprised when we don’t and we’re surprised when we’re told that we need to learn new skills and mindsets to achieve the highest ranks in this business.
The Skills Are Not Difficult
The skills it takes to succeed in network marketing are not outside the capacity of most people to learn. I firmly believe that anyone can learn them. Just like most people could learn to build a house, code a program or sew on a button. They simply choose not to.
You can achieve whatever goal you want to achieve through network marketing. You have the capacity. The only thing standing between you and your wildest dreams is learning whatever skills or mindsets you don’t yet have and then putting them into action.
So what are you waiting for?
