Today I wanted to talk to you about whether you are easily influenced by the opinions of other people. Okay, I know 99% of you will go, “Of course I'm not influenced by other people's opinions.”
Well, why do I ask that? Well, when it comes to posture in network marketing, in business, it's all about, how do you react to other people's comments? How do you react to other people's opinions? Because real posture, if you really have a passion for network marketing, it means that you believe in what you have to offer, regardless of external acceptance or approval. That's real posture. When you believe what you've got to offer, regardless of external acceptance or approval, which means you have a firm belief. Nobody can shake you, nobody can mess you about, and nobody can stop you.
Let me give you an example. Those of you for example, who have kids, you have certain beliefs about raising your kids, about disciplining your kids, about treating your kids, so if somebody comes to your house a stranger and would start telling you that you're a rubbish parent, that you should treat your kids different way, you should discipline your kids different way, I think you would have a posture about that. You would have your own opinion about that. And because somebody came to your house and said, “Oh, you should do differently,” you wouldn't change everything you do with your kids. Because that person said that.
Even better example is electricity. You probably have posture about electricity. So if somebody called you and went, “Hey, did you hear that electricity is a scam?” You wouldn't go, “Oh my Gosh, really? Oh my Gosh, so what is powering my toaster then? If electricity is a scam what I've been paying for all of these years.” No, you wouldn't bloody do that. Because you know, electricity is real. You've got some posture about electricity no matter what somebody tells you, you know that electricity is real, it exists.
So same way in your network marketing business, you should have the same strong posture. Because if you come to somebody you go, “Hey man, would you like to take a look at my business?” And they go, “Oh, it's a scam,” and you go, “Oh, they told me it’s a scam.” That means you're having posture about your business. Or if you show somebody-- if you try somebody to present your products, and they go, “Ah, its crap,” Then you go, “Somebody said, my products are crap, what should I do?” That means you haven't got posture that means you require other people to accept you and to approve of your business and your products in order for you to believe in it. Do you get it? “You will never make it in this business if you require external acceptance and external approval for you to be able to progress in this business, for you to be able to share this business opportunity with other people, for you to be able to share the products with other people, it's game over before you even get started.
So how easily are you influenced by the opinions of other people? You have to ask yourself that question and you have to start training your brain to believe in what you have to offer regardless of what somebody says, regardless of the haters you're going to get and you will get haters, regardless of dream stealers that you're going to come across and you will come across the people who will try to stop you, people who will try to drag you down, people who try to challenge you and make you doubt in yourself, or doubting your company, or doubting your products, or doubting the whole of network marketing industry.
You have to have such a firm belief as you have with electricity that no matter who would come to you, what article they would find, what whatever they would dig up, it wouldn't shake your stability you would still keep solid in a business, you’d go, “Yeah, whatever man I don't know what you found out or what you read about my business.” And when you have that strength, when you have that belief, when you have that posture, guess what happens? People start believing you, people stop questioning you, people stop doubting you, because they go, “Wow, she knows what she's going, Oh, wow. He's committed to this thing. He's got unwavering belief.” And that's when you start getting results.
Because again, there's a lot going on about mindset, you need to work on your mindset. Well, I can easily tell your mindset. All I have to do is just look at your results. If you haven't got results, if you're not making money, if you're not progressing in business, if you not recruiting people, if you're not selling products, your mindset is crap. Because you can't keep going, “No, but I've been reading motivational books every day and I…” forget about it. Your results show your mindset so it doesn't matter how many lies you tell yourself every single day, how motivated I am, how positive I am. If you truly have that posture, if you truly have that mindset, you'll start talking to people, your actions will show your mindset, and your actions will create results. So your mindset should create action and your action should create result. If you only have the mindset, but you're not taking any action, guess what? Your mindset sucks. No motivational book is going to help you there, I don't think so.
I hope this blog post makes sense and if it does make sense and you’ve got some value, feel free to share it with other people too maybe somebody needs to hear this message as well. See you all at the top!
Yours in success
