Your 5 Tips To Taking Massive Action
How To Take Massive Action Tip #1 Do not give into your fear
Easier said than done you may say. When I was struggling for 18 months with a previous network marketing company I remember reaching a point where I was so frustrated it was either I quit or I had to do something massively different.
I started to watch what the leaders were doing. I noticed that most of them did videos. Their videos were everywhere. I knew that t his was something I had to do but I was just so scared. I’d done some but just didn’t like how I sounded or looked in front of the camera.
The best thing I did though was find myself a mentor who was making videos and getting great success. He knew exactly how to take massive action. When I said that I was afraid of getting in front of the camera he told me to get over it. That was it. He said that I must get over it. The thing is that successful people feel fear too.
They just feel the fear and don’t allow themselves to give into it. I soon as I started doing videos consistently my business skyrocketed. I went from 8 leads per month and zero sales to sponsoring 4 to 19 people into that business consistently each month.
Something that helped me was when I stopped worrying about how I sounded and what I looked like. I started to be more concerned about the people I wanted to help. I realised that when I am teaching I am helping.
So whatever it is you are frightened of doing and you know deep down that being able to do this thing will give you the break you need – just get over it and do it. To conquer your fear you have to become stronger than your fear.
How To Take Massive Action Tip #2 Stop accepting your excuses
What are you doing with your time? When I saw other people succeeding I would say that it was alright for them because they were doing their business full time. I had a full time job and family commitments. That became my excuse.
I would get in from my job feeling tired and exhausted. I would manage to cook the meal and then veg out in front of the TV. I felt I deserved having this time because I’d worked so hard. Some days I’d feel like working on my business other days I did not.
Things changed when I realised that my business would never grow and give me the freedom I so desired. I realised I had to put the work in now to get the freedom later. So I stopped sitting in front of the TV each evening when I got in from work.
I also used to spend hours doing the housework. I decided this had to stop too. Yes, my house is not as clean as I would like it to be. I have a partner and a 16 year old son and I realised that I needed to delegate more. When I’m making the money I want I can get a cleaner.
I do spend hours on my business. I make time to attend training, attend webinars and create content to share with my prospects and followers. I am sometimes surprised when people approach me for help and when I offer them my precious time they’ll find an excuse not to make it. This can happen over and over again.
It is up to you to get out of your own way. Stop accepting your excuses and take the action you need to take to achieve the success you deserve.
How To Take Massive Action Tip #3 Be aware of what you are good at
Many people who start a home based business or team up with a network marketing company will try to copy others to begin with. This is understandable when you are a complete newbie. That is exactly what I did. I tried to copy what I saw other people doing. The problem was that it was often completely outside my comfort zone or did not fit with my personality.
I can be shy and I’m quite an introvert. This is probably why I found it difficult to get into doing videos to begin with. However, I trained as a teacher and I’ve been a trainer within my organisation for many years. I love teaching. When I realised that I could teach people using video it got a lot easier. I am comfortable teaching something that I know to people.
So what I suggest is to think about what you are good at and run with that. If you are a socialite then use social media to connect with people have build relationships. If you are more techy, which I am too get involved in creating and giving tutorials.
Now as soon as you start getting results no matter how small start sharing that with people. This is something I wish I had done when I got started. You see when you learn something new it is likely that there is someone else out there who does not have that information or does not know how to do that yet.
Believe it or not people are on the side lines watching you. They’re interested in how things are going with you. They will see your progress. Once you’ve learnt something you are now the expert. You don’t have to be perfect at it. You just need to know how to do it.
A good strategy is to learn something and then get in front of the video camera and with some excitement share what you have just learnt. Then tell people where they can access that information. The best thing of course is if that information is in the form of a free training where they will need to exchange their email address to access it. Now you are building your list without having to pitch people.
How To Take Massive Action Tip # 4 Do not get stuck in training mode
Wow this is such a biggie. I know that I continuously fall into this trap. When I started to use video marketing to build my business I learnt a particular strategy. I focused on that one strategy until I was generating 10 to 20 leads per day.
What some people do is they learn a strategy begin to implement it but before they start getting consistent results they will decide to add another strategy. What that usually means is taking time out to watch training and then put things in place to implement that strategy. What do you think happens? Well what happens is you lose momentum. Once you lose momentum you have to start again.
I know this because it has happened to me. My main strategy is video marketing and blogging. I would record a daily video and blog post. I decided to learn about Instagram because I saw people getting great results with that strategy. So I invested in some training and then started to implement a Instagram strategy. However, I had not yet built up enough viral sustainability with my video marketing and when momentum slowed down so did my lead flow.
So choose one strategy and stick to it until you are consistently generating so many leads per day that if you stopped the leads would still keep coming in. Then move onto another strategy and master it in the same way.
How To Take Massive Action Tip #5 Multi-tasking. Doing you business in the nooks and crannies of the day
Many people will tell you that you should not multi task. Well, they are both right and wrong. Yes, if you are attempting to do two or more tasks that require that you think and concentrate on both then this is not very productive. However, there will be activities that you engage in during the day which does not require your full mental attention.
For example, when you are cooking you can be listening to music and some people will have a TV in their kitchen as background. Well, why not listen to a motivational speaker or a training webinar whilst you are cooking the meal. When I go for a walk or I’m driving I listen to podcasts. Also when I have a few minutes during the day I have recorded a quick video giving some tips. I’ve also used used a few minutes to quickly follow up with a prospect on Facebook or like and comment on someone’s Facebook wall.
If you are a network marketer or home based business owner every minute of the day is precious. You will of course want to spend time with your family but there are minutes here or there where you’re not doing much that you can use in a productive way to move your business forward.
Look I listen to the same training over and over again. Why? Because I know that I may missed something on the previous occasion because it is hard to keep concentration 100% of the time. Also each time I listen I am in a different place and things I hear can take on a completely different meaning.
So that’s it. I hope these 5 tips will help you turn a corner in your business and take the massive action you need in order to see success in your business.
