Slight changes don’t Do a 180: Stay Focused and Committed
Sometimes when things aren’t going the way we think they should, when your working hard and not getting the results you think you should be getting, then you need to step back and take a look at what could be missing, or better yet have someone you trust take a look at your method and get their input.
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting to get different results. But just because your not getting the results you think you should be getting that does not mean what your doing it wrong. Most of the time if you just change one thing everything you’re doing will change. Maybe you need to change what you are saying or how you are saying it.
Slight changes will get you there faster.
For example: The space shuttle on the way to the moon needs to make slight corrections along the way. If it’s off just a fraction it could end up at a completely different location. Slight corrections are very important in business as well as on space flight. It’s better to make slight corrections along the way than every time you get frustrated stopping what you are doing or stop and start doing something totally different.
If you stop to do a 180 you are now not going in a forward direction, but by doing slight changes you will still be moving in a forward direction.
One time I was making cold calls and was not getting good results I talked to my mentor about changing my method of operation he asked what I was saying. He gave me a few suggestions and I added about 6 words to what I was saying and that changed everything. Remember slight changes are better then completely changing your game plan.
In Network Marketing / MLM / Affiliate Marketing, I see people getting frustrated with the way their business is going so they start thinking it’s their business and switch to a new company. Then, they get frustrated and switch again. After about three to four different MLMs and five to eight years have gone by they quite the business totally. If they would have picked one company and stayed focused and committed to it, In five to seven years they would be making really good money. There are peeks and valleys in this business. Don’t make major decisions in a valley. That’s where most people make a mistake. No matter what business you’re in they all have a season of expanding and contracting. It’s part of the business. With new companies coming and going every day and all the HYPE out there, it’s very easy to get confused. 75% of all new companies will not make it past three years. So Stay focused and committed. Stick to your daily method of operation and make slight changes along the way and before you know it you will be making money in the six figures in a year, a month or a week.
I believe in you.
