“If everybody is doing it one way, there's a good chance you can find your niche by going exactly in the opposite direction.” Sam Walton.
Success and failure begins and ends with me, therefore, I am the only person responsible for my success or failure! There are many keys to success and each of them open the doors of opportunity. The latest article I’ve ran across during my research says that patience, persistence and perseverance are the “true” keys to success. In many network marketing trainings and webinars I hear make money now! Or be a rabbit and not a turtle! Neither of those call to action phrases show any attributes of being patient, being persistent nor perseverance. In all honesty my goal is to reach my destination and I’d prefer to train to run a marathon through patience, persistence and perseverance than a short distance sprint.
I'm the biggest introvert I know, which means I stress OUT over customer service. I don't even like talking on the phone to friends and family. That's why text messaging was invented, right? In my quest to succeed I’m doing things differently. Providing the most value to my clients and partners begins with education. If I don’t have the network marketing education to succeed, I cannot teach my down-line team to succeed. There is a learning curve to overcome in the network marketing business, so be patient and don’t give up. For the first couple of months after starting my networking business, I should have focused on educating myself. I’m glad to know that it’s not too late to start a daily ritual of self-improvement.
Finding my niche requires me to get out of my comfort zone. While getting out of my comfort zone may never make me a social butterfly I will be building relationships by actively participating in various networking group.
