21 Days of Habits

tumblr_m0c7a0kA5C1qhvzsxo1_1280

I read that it takes 21 days to create a new habit, so I have finally been able to create a system to create small changes in my life. I posted this list in my room where I could see it everyday.

Starting July 14th, I began 5 small habits, and did them for 21 days.

  1. Read devotional and pray.
  2. Say my daily affirmation
  3. Call 2 people a day to develop a relationship
  4. Post daily to Craigslist about my business
  5. Watch a Ted Talk

After I had done this for 21 days, I kept doing them, and then I decided to add 2 more things on August 10th. This is 21 Days Part 2.

  1. Read devotional and pray
  2. Say my daily affirmation
  3. Call 2 people a day to develop a relationship
  4. Post daily to Craigslist about my business
  5. Watch a Ted Talk
  6. Blog My Notes Daily
  7. Post to Facebook daily, like and comment on my news feed, send 10 messages to 10 friends. Like and comment on the MLM Business page as well.

After August 30th, I will add a couple more things. So basically every 21 days, I will add something new to the list of things to do. This method of creating new habits will develop my network marketing business, but will always help me in several different areas of my life. It will change my career in musical theatre, my health, my relationships with other people, my spiritual life, and my overall confidence in myself. I think this method is great for anyone who wants to make changes in their lives.

I suggest you start small and continually add on new habits every 21 days. Mark your calendar with X’s each day that you do the activities on your list and don’t break the chain.

If you want to make major changes in your life, you will never just wake up one day and suddenly be different. You have to work on yourself daily to make permanent changes in your life. Focus on a few things at a time and don’t try to change everything at once.

I hope this helps!!

5 Steps to Be a Top Earner from Ray Higdon Webinar

Mindset

Have a positive mindset and be careful of the words you say to yourself.

Go to network marketing events because you will see people winning at these events and this is essential to your success.

You need to have belief and need to suspend your disbelief. Your past does not indicate your future.

Invest in your training and coaching with books, audios, and programs.

Stop thinking and start doing!

Lead Generation

Ask yourself  “Who would you love to get close to?” What do they need?

If you have an email list, email the following; “Hey there, I’m just curious what is the number one thing that you struggle with?” Let me know if I can be of help to you.” Ray said many people would respond to this message.

Prospecting & Recruiting

If you have been struggling to talk to people and you are still not taking action in your business, you need to get smarter at marketing! If you get smarter with marketing, strangers will reach out to you.

If you have a burnt warm market and you know for a fact that each individual is burnt, then call them up and say ” Hey I;m doing this business. I don’t think the business is a fit for you, but I think you might like the product.”

When someone looks at your presentation, NEVER ask “What did you think?” Instead ask, “What did you like about what you saw? If they say something negative, ask why did they watch it? Don’t try to convince people to join your business who say no or are negative about it.

If a prospect demands to know “What’s the price?” before watching the presentation, you should say “It probably won’t cost you a dime, because it may not be a fit for you. Most times the prospect will watch the presentation. Ray said that he thinks people that ask that question are being immature and childish and that you have to get firm with them. You don’t require the approval and acceptance of others.

Team Building & Duplication

You should inspire your team. Keep doing what you wish your people on your team were doing.

Avoid self-sabotage- You cannot be affected by what a team member would do in the short term. Many top earners did nothing for a long time in their businesses before they started getting serious about their business. You may have a team member who does nothing for awhile, but don’t quit your business. Keep working and maybe one day they will follow!

Systems

When your team members have questions, refer them all to the same resource. Content creation such as blogs or videos are great ways to document how you built your business so then your team members can refer to that content creation. This is duplication and it is essential to network marketing.

If you spend an hour talking to a team member about one of his/her questions, this will not be effective in the long term. Refer them to something you created so they will go to the content and do the work. People with no instruction recruit more people.

A blog is a great way to build your business and help your team have a system to refer to when they need it. You can simply watch a video, take notes and then post those notes on the blog and Ray said it was okay to do this.

Hope this helps you with your MLM business!
