I felt hesitation in sharing this network marketing success mindset video on finding the strength to overcome obstacles because I wasn’t sure if it was too personal of a story. But I’ve taken the stance that since the lesson has been so powerfully moving for me, it might be for you as well. I won’t serve anyone else if keep it to myself.
I’m hoping that by sharing it, maybe it will help change your mindset in some way, which could result in a lasting legacy.
What this story is not about:
This is not a story about having a network marketing success mindset or overcoming obstacles in your business, but at the same time it has everything to do with these things. I’ll get to them after the video…
What this story is about:
It’s a story of a 15 year old boy and what he did for his grandma, whom he called “Jamma”, to honor her, pay tribute to her, and celebrate her days before he lost her.
(I apologize ahead of time for tearing up on the video. Like I said this is a very personal story and one that was powerfully moving to me, and I can’t tell the story without crying.)
You will not have the strength to overcome obstacles in your network marketing business or your life if you don’t set yourself up to win with a success mindset.
There are 9 steps to creating a strong network marketing success mindset:
Network Marketing Success Mindset Step 1: Know your goal
My cousin knew what he wanted to accomplish. He wanted to “Run one in for ‘Jamma.”
Have you thought about your goal and figured out what you really want to accomplish?
Network Marketing Success Mindset Step 2: State your goal out loud
He told his Grandma what he was going to do when we was visiting with her in the hospital.
When you state your goal out loud it makes is real and when you tell someone about it, it makes you accountable. People of integrity hold great value in keeping our word and we will often do anything possible to not break our word.
Network Marketing Success Mindset Step 3: Write your goal down
My cousin wrote his goal on the bottom of his new cleats.
When you write your goal down your mind goes to work to figure out how to make that happen.
Network Marketing Success Mindset Step 4: Have a strong enough reason why you want to reach your goal
His why was to honor his grandma and probably to feel like he was doing what he could in the helpless situation of knowing she was dying. Giving her a gift.
Our team suggests that you make a list of 21+ reasons why you are building your business and when you get to the “why that makes you cry,” you’ve found it.
People will do more to avoid pain than to gain pleasure, so attaching your why to something that you feel pain, either physically or emotionally about will be stronger than something like wanting to own your own private jet. (Unless maybe you’re terrified to fly commercial airlines and you are forced to do so on a regular basis.)
Network Marketing Success Mindset Step 5: Visualize yourself reaching your goal
Do you have a vision board, have you created a mind movie, have you daydreamed about your goal? Visualization doesn’t have to be hard like many people make it. Quick…What color is your car? Our minds think in pictures so you simply need to create pictures in your mind of you reaching your goal.
I’m sure my cousin imagined himself carrying the ball into the end zone.
Network Marketing Success Mindset Step 6: Experience the emotions you will feel when you reach your goal
Napoleon Hill talks about having a burning desire to make something happen. If you’ve ever had a burning desire for something you know that it’s a feeling you get throughout your body. Maybe you’ve also heard about having the fire in your belly to make something happen.
You can increase this feeling of desire by allowing yourself to feel the emotions you will feel when you reach your goal.
Network Marketing Success Mindset Step 7: Have a trigger-device to help you stay focused on your goal
A trigger device is simply something that anchors your mind to your goal and triggers a feeling.
My trigger device is my necklace because it has a diamond for each of my three kids in it and it reminds me of how I want to retire my husband so he can enjoy spending more time with our kids like he’s worked so hard to allow me to do.
My cousin’s anchor devices were his cleats that he wrote “Run one in for Jamma” on the bottom of. They were with him through the hold game.
Network Marketing Success Mindset Step 8: Have support from others who will cheer you on to your goal
Who is cheering you on and supporting you in your goals? Your team, your family, your tribe? You can’t do this alone and having someone cheering you on will help you overcome your obstacles and not give up.
My cousin had my uncle in the stands cheering and supporting him. He had his coaches, his teammates and the crowd in the stands.
Network Marketing Success Mindset Step 9: Get into activity!
Don’t believe that you can just visualize yourself into success without taking effective action toward achieving it. Even if you don’t know exactly what what you need to do for your goal, getting into activity will help you achieve it!
My cousin couldn’t have known how he was going to end up making the goal, but he showed up for the game, dressed and ready to play, and looked for his opportunity to take action toward his vision.
I’m so proud of my cousin and I have learned so much from him through this story. I hope you learned something too.
