I want to share with you four stages of attention you will receive as an
entrepreneur, as a business owner. So what sort of attention can you expect to
get as an entrepreneur?
You start your home based business, you start your network marketing business, and of course you expect everybody to love and support you. Yes. If you do that I've got some bad news because when you start something, you will go through the four stages of attention with your friends, family, work colleagues, neighbours, basically most people that know you, you will go through these four stages of attention.
The first stage is attention. So you start doing something, you start posting on your social media, you start talking to people and you will first get just attention, like people will go, “Mmh, what’s going on in there? What is she doing? What is he up to? What's going on there?” So you get some attention. People will be curious, like, “What’s going on? What is she doing?” So that's the first stage. If you’re at that stage, enjoy it while you can. The second stage, you start getting complaints. So then some people will start becoming annoyed by you. They'll go, “Oh, she's always selling. She's always calling people. She's always doing this, that and the other. She’s always pitching her business. She's always posting stuff on social media.”
So you start getting complaints by people being annoyed by you. And there's few reasons, some people they will get annoyed by you because they're jealous, because they know they need to be doing something as well, but they're not doing, so the next best thing is to drag you down. Some people will just be annoyed like, whatever, like you in their face. So it's going to be complaining. So that's stage number two. So if you're going through that, keep going. That's stage two.
Stage three is you're going to start getting some haters. So once you start getting some success, once you start making some money, once you start travelling, once you start getting those cars, maybe you start getting some recognition on the stage or by your colleagues, some people will outright start hating you for it.
Now they no longer complaining, but they literally talking behind your back saying, “Ah, who does she think she is? She's such a so and so.” People make up stories about you, things that you've never done, but it doesn't matter they'll just make them up to cause harm to you. And I know it's ridiculous, and I know it's horrible, but it just happens. It happens, to most people, if you ask most people who have achieved big level of success, they will say to you that, yeah, they've had rumours made up about them.
People have told other people about them, things that never happened, etcetera, or whatever. So that's the third stage you'll go through, and you will go through that, especially people who know you well, that who grew up in the same conditions, they had the same potential, they had the same opportunities, but they didn't take them, seeing you succeed, it's like the salt of the wound, it makes them nuts, because they know they could have been where you are, but they aren't because they scared, because they didn't take action, because they were lazy or for whatever reason, and because of that, they'll hate your guts. And again, if you’re going through that stage, just keep going. Just keep going.
And then comes number four, stage number four and stage number four is admiration, they say work so hard that your haters turn into your fans, and this will happen and I promise you at some stage, those haters will go, “I know her, I went to school with her. Can you believe it? Yeah, she was at my house, had a cup of tea with me. Can you believe it? I know her. Yeah, I know her.” So that that hatred now turns into admiration because that's now their call to fame to say that they know you, to say that they actually hang out with you at some point in the loser land.
And it will happen, you'll start seeing people celebrate you who you never thought in your life would celebrate you, but that's happens. They say, “Your friends and family will not support you until they see strangers celebrate you.” So it was happen, it will happen. At some point when you become so successful, then they'll say, “Oh yeah.” And then first they're going to call you crazy and then they're going to call you lucky. Nobody's ever going to say, “Well done Sarah, you really worked hard and here you go, you deserve all the success.” No, at the beginning, they go, “Ah, you're nut. Are you crazy? This is never going to work out for you, you’re dell boy or whatever.”
And then when you do start crushing it, making all the money, getting all the accolades and everything, then they go, “Oh my gosh, isn't she lucky? Isn't she lucky? She got there first. She was early in.” Even though they could have done the same thing, but they wouldn't admit ever that, “Hey, that person just fair and square earned whatever she wanted or he wanted.”
First, they’re going to call you crazy, then they’re going to call you lucky. It's one of the two but they will never go, “Hey man, well done to you. You earned it.” Most people will never do that. So that's really what it is all about.
So my tip for you is be so good, they can't ignore you. Be so good, they can't ignore you. Call so many people, send so many messages, put so many posts, do so much that they can't ignore you, that you're so much in their face that they either have to block you or join you. But there's no other way. Be so good, they can't ignore you and work so hard so that you become so successful, that your haters will start asking you if you're hiring. That's the best time.
When you start getting messages from people who you definitely know were talking behind your back, when you start getting messages from them saying, “Hey, how are you doing this? Hey, could I have some time with you? I'd love to learn with you.” That's when you know I've arrived. Now I'm killing it proper. So that's my tip for you.
