Today I wanted to talk about momentum. What does it take to get your business into a momentum and why it's important? So the title of this Facebook Live is, do you ever feel like pushing a train? And if you do, it's a good thing. I'll tell you why.
It’s about momentum and consistency. You see, I teach people about consistency almost every single day because I personally believe it's probably one of the most important things for your success. If you want to become successful, especially in business, you have to become consistent, you have to start doing the activities every single day, every single day, every single day. That's why I developed a DMO, daily method of operation for my team, not Monday to Friday method of operation, not when I feel like it method of operation, but daily, because when they do it daily, it's consistent. It becomes a habit.
However, the problem is that when you first start to become consistent... So when you first make a decision, okay, I'm going to be consistent, I'm going to start doing activities every single day and I'm going to grow my business. The problem is, it takes time. So at the beginning, you're doing every day, every day, every day, every day, every day and in your first month, nothing seems to be happening. It looks like you’re pushing a train, it’s like is not moving, like nothing is happening. You’re putting all of this effort, you’re putting all of this activity, you’re putting all of this work, and you haven't got much to show for it. And this is where most people will quit. This is the place where most people will give up.
And it's so unfortunate, it's so heartbreaking to see but so many people will do that. They will quit three days in, five days in. They join the business, they speak to three people and all three people say no, they go, “That's it, I had enough.” And they didn't realise what this could have become for them, what this could have given them, how this could have changed their life. So at the beginning is like pushing the train, but guess what, if you keep consistent every day activity, keep going, the second month slightly getting in the move. Third month, you start hearing cuching, cuching, cuching, fourth month, fifth month, six months it starts going chuchu, chuchu, chuchu, tuu, tuuu. Your business starts getting into a momentum.
So it takes some time because you’re starting from standing still, it takes some time to get your business into a momentum. So key number one here is you have to keep going, at the beginning, you have to keep going even if you're not seeing results, even if you're not seeing much activity, even if you're not seeing many people joining your team, even if you're not seeing many people buying products, you just have to keep going, keep going, keep pushing, keep pushing, keep pushing. So that's one. Make a decision. Give it a year, give it a year of consistent action. What's a year in your life span? It might look like, “Oh my gosh, a year. That's a long period of time for me to keep doing this.” If you think about the fact that you're going to live for the next 60, 70 years, then one year of really focused hard work, to live the rest 60 years in much better quality, in much better luxury, in the house of your dreams, driving the cars of your dreams, travelling the world etc, to sacrifice one year to live the rest of your life is not a big ask. So that's one, focus, keep going.
Number two, once your business starts getting into momentum, the worst thing you can do is relax. The worst thing you can do is stop pushing the train, because if you stop pushing the train, it’ll slow down and, boom, it stops again. So and again, most of the things I teach you what not to do, I've done it. That's why I know you shouldn't do it.
So I've done it, in the eight years that I've been in home business, I've done it before. When I would notice that my business starts getting into momentum then I'd go, “Okay, time to relax. Time to chill out.” And it goes back down. And then I have to start from standing still again. So don't do that. Once your business starts getting into momentum, don’t, let go of it, don't stop pushing, don’t stop driving your business. Whatever it takes, you have to keep going. And remember a low activity day is okay, no activity today is not. So it's okay to have days of low activity where maybe you're travelling, maybe you want to goof off with the kids all day, etc, totally fine. You're a human being, you deserve some break, but still squeeze in few messages, still squeeze in few calls, still maybe do one Facebook Live, still maybe do some posts or whatever just to say to yourself, give yourself a pat on the back to go, “Hey, it was a low activity day, but I didn't skip. I didn't flake out. I didn't give up. I didn't do no activity.” And that will keep the momentum going because if your business got into momentum, you don't need to push it as hard as at the beginning when it was standing still.
So you can just do a low activity and it'll still keep going. Of course, as long as you don't just do low activity for a month or for two months. You can do some days low activity, some days high activity, but no days no activity, and then you'll have a business that will be booming, that will be growing, it'll be a pleasure to watch it happen and pleasure watch it unfold. Things will start falling into its place and it will be incredible. So that's my training for today.
