You’re probably thinking what an interesting title for this blog post.
What does network marketing and riding a bike have in common?”
As you read through this, I hope that you will see the comparison and it will help you through some of the struggles that you will face in building your network marketing business.
I wish when I was starting out that I would have had this information!!!!
I’m not sure if you remember learning to ride a bike or if you’ve had children that you’ve watched learn to ride a bike.
When you first get started you have no skills. You fall down. You bang your knees, scratch your elbows. You get bruised and bloody, but you DON’T GIVE UP. You want to ride that bike so bad that after trying and failing over and over again, you keep trying.
You might ride 5 feet without falling and then you fall. You get so excited that you made it that little bit that you get up and you try again. This time you go 10 feet and then 15 feet and then 20 feet. Before you know it you are riding freely and you are so excited and having so much fun. Something that was so frustrating and discouraging has turned into such joy!!!
YOU ARE FREE!!!
It’s the same when you’re building your network marketing business. Many people come in and they think they’re going to make money really quick. This is not always the case. You do not realize that you have to develop skill. You have to learn how to invite. You have to learn how to listen to people. You have to learn how to communicate with people, show people and close people and as you develop the skills your business will begin to grow. At first it might be hard. You will be uncomfortable. You might get hurt and bloodied a little bit. Yet the excitement of growing your business keeps you going and before you know it you recruit two or three people in your team. You recruit five or six people and its just like getting on that bike. You start riding and getting excited and instead of it being hard to talk to people, you enjoy talking to people. You enjoy listening to people.
If you’re battling discouragement and frustration
Hang in there and develop the skills that you need to develop. You will grow your business!!
So never ever quit!!
