Attention My friends What’s better than a double-fudge sundae?
Buying double-fudge sundaes for 100′s of family and friends and not worrying about how much it costs. As you consider all your options for 2012 please think of this: Will 2012 be a repeat of 2011? Or will you start something truly meaningful that can set you financially free?
Please commit now to your financial freedom – not for the bmoney alone – but because of the freedom it can mean for yourself and your family. I heard someone say once, “Poverty is no sin, but staying in poverty when you have the knowledge to get out of it is”.
Use your knowledge to do something courageous in 2012. If there’s one thing I know: YOU CAN do it. (a friend of mine emailed this to me, I know it will help you)
How You Can Be Confident And Make Great Presentations With Every Prospect, Every Time. Fear is a HUGE sticking point for many networkers. Wouldn’t you agree?
How many times have you stopped yourself from doing the exact activity you need to do in order to move your business forward because you’re simply afraid to?
Tasks like making prospecting calls, setting up an appointment to show a plan, and so on.
Many times, we stop ourselves from moving forward because we fear looking like a fool. We’re not sure we have enough experience or credibility to take on the task without flubbing it up.
Throughout my life I have had many feelings of fear when approaching a prospect. Especially when I first started building my business.
Looking back at that time, I’m not sure if the person I was talking with really gave that “feeling” to me or if I was the one who gave it to myself because I didn’t feel like I had enough credibility to be talking to this person.
Think about that for a few seconds…or a few minutes!
Can someone reach inside your head and make you feel anything?
I don’t think there’s a “no credibility” switch inside your head or mine that a person can reach in and flip. What I’m trying to do is help you to see that this question mostly has to do with how you view yourself. Or how you allow others to influence the way you view yourself.
If you think about it, no one can MAKE you feel mad or angry or guilty or not credible – YOU are the only one who can accomplish that; even if someone says it to you.
Let’s suppose you’re a female and someone says to you, “You are a guy.” You would just look at them strangely and continue what you’re doing. You KNOW you’re not a guy.
But if someone says something to you that you have already thought of – then you’re more likely to “allow” them to influence the way you see yourself. Like, “You’ve put on some weight.”
But in reality, the two comments don’t have to affect you differently.
I used to have this thought that because I didn’t get a college degree, I wasn’t credible and that no one would listen to me. I would walk away feeling like I had no credibility with them. And, perhaps I didn’t. But the real damage was when I didn’t talk to people simply because I thought I didn’t have the right to talk to someone because I didn’t go to college!
That’s enormous damage.
Now, what’s the “truth?” Is there anyone who has ever been successful in life that didn’t go to college? YES! People go to college so they can be more knowledgeable on a subject so they can get better results. So it’s results that matter. But I used to think (incorrectly) that college equaled better results. Perhaps if I was trying to be successful as a doctor it would matter – but in network marketing it does not.
How to increase your credibility
I knew the ONLY way I was going to gain the respect of others (college graduates or not) was to get results. So number one I had to not stop myself no matter what anyone said to me or what I said to myself. I had to just keep on until I got results.
Here’s what I did and what you should do if you want to increase your credibility:
1. Talk with people – no one can be successful without this step.
2. Help people and allow others to help you. – When someone helps you, give back something of equal or greater value. Allow them to help you back.
3. Be trustworthy. – Do what you say you will do.
4. Increase your knowledge – The more knowledge you have in the area you are advising or suggesting about, the more influence you will have. So know network marketing. Know your product/service. Know your company.
5. Increase your results (doing the above will accomplish this) – The more results you’ve gotten in the area you are discussing or attempting to attract another into, the more
influence you will have. This is not a requirement obviously because everyone in network marketing starts with zero results.
Bottom line: If you sense someone isn’t giving you any credibility – move on and do not allow them to weaken your view of yourself. If your prospect needs credibility in order to listen to you then you can contact them after you’ve gotten results.
A person who is unable to evaluate a business has to judge the business based on their perception of the credibility of the person presenting it. Those who can not evaluate a business based on its merits will work for those who can, or miss out on a lot of money.
