The Winning Mindset

Many factors can attribute to our success as a Network Marketer.  Besides the fact that you need:

A great company, a supportive Mastermind Team, a success team system ,and a great product, it is also essential you have the winning mindset necessary for success.

In the beginning we are fueled with excitement, enthusiasm, hope and a very positive attitude.  It’s new and it’s fun even though it is challenging learning everything necessary to get us on the track to success. We are on a high.  We are on a roll.  We are going places.

However, we all encounter disappointments, frustrations and set backs.  That’s just how life is. These situations or circumstances are different for all of us.

-Maybe your immediate sponsor quits.
-A trusted leader or upline never returns your email or phone call.
-Your best friends don’t want any involvement in your wonderful new adventure.
-Your family is non supportive.
-Your upline offended you.
-A valued associate jumped to the latest, newest pre-launch opportunity.
-You aren’t finding enough prospects.
-Your partners are doing better than you.

Or maybe:

-You have information overload.

-You are overwhelmed.

-You are out of money.

-You want to quit!

When your business isn’t playing out like you hoped it would, if you are not careful you could find yourself with a dark cloud hanging over you.
Whatever it may be for you, the bottom line is the more we dwell on such things, the bigger the dark cloud grows.  Just remember it happens to all of us.  We are no different than the next marketer.

However, depression does not come from “those things”.  It comes from dwelling on those factors, taking them personally and allowing them to consume us.  Depression can strangle you until you become one of the statistics of failure, because you quit.

If you truly can’t pull yourself up by your bootstraps and get out of your funk, then seek out a trusted leader who has a vested interest in your success to help you get the proper perspective and move out from under that cloud.

Our attitude is so powerful!  It can make or break us.  Material things come and go but our values and attitudes are ingrained in us and we can exercise control over our thoughts. Change your attitude and change your life is often heard and it is most assuredly true.

We know that planting positive information into our mind is absolutely essential for our success.  Paying careful attention to personal development by listening to inspirational cds, reading uplifting books, practicing daily affirmations, visualizing our success, praying and being accountable to a Mastermind team is so necessary for our growth and to move forward in life.  We do not have to succumb to the dark cloud of depression.  By practicing the disciplines mentioned we can be in control of our attitudes.

It’s all summed up in one of my favorite, well known quotes by Charles Swindoll, a minister and bestselling author:

“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.  The remarkable thing is that we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.  We cannot change our past; we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way.  We cannot change the inevitable.  The only thing we can do is play on the string we have, and that is our attitude.  I’m convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent how I react to ti.  And so it is with you.  We are in charge of our attitudes.”

So, what ever you encounter when the events in your life don’t unfold as you have expected them to, you will be able to think clearly and quickly draw upon your storehouse of foundational beliefs not wasting precious time under the dark cloud of depression.

Is it always easy?  No. But it’s so critical to remember….

“Your attitude is either your best friend or your worst enemy, your greatest asset or your greatest liability.” ~John Maxwell
