Strategy #1: Revisit Your Why

The cure to whatever ails you in your business is action. But what happens when you just don’t FEEL like taking action in your business? 

We get it. Sometimes it can be hard to make ourselves take action… especially when we’ve been in a slump and have got into the habit of allowing excuses and emotions to keep us from doing what we know we need to do. 

Sure, you can grit your teeth and willpower your way through it… but what if there was an easier way? 

Lucky for us, there is! 

Wantpower is what happens when your desire for something is so strong, it overrides any negative thoughts, beliefs or feelings you have about the process required to get there. 

Imagine that you’re going on a vacation to your DREAM destination. In order to maximize the experience and get as much time in as possible, you’ve booked a 6am flight that has you arriving that day before noon. 

The downside? A 3:30am wake-up call. 

But it doesn’t matter! Your desire to arrive at your destination is SO strong,  you actually CHOSE that 6am flight along with all the hectic craziness that comes with waking up in the middle of the night, driving to the airport, dealing with airport security and the armrest-hogging stranger in the seat next to you because all that unpleasantness will ultimately get you where you want to go.

One thing I’m sure we can all agree upon is that traveling is not pleasant. We don’t vacation for the journey… we vacation for the destination. 

Your business can be the same way! If you’re struggling with how to come up with the willpower to grit your teeth and get into action, swap your willpower out for wantpower instead. 

Remember where you’re going and WHY you’re going there. Take some time to write out your “why” on a sheet of paper.

Strategy #2: Create a 30, 60 and 90-Day Goal

If you have a really big “why”, it’s possible that it can seem so far off that you struggle to stay motivated in the day-to-day. It helps to create 30, 60 and 90-Day goals to keep us inspired and motivated to stay in action… especially if you’ve been in a slump! 

There are 2 types of goals: Achievement-Based goals, and Habit-Based Goals. 

We believe having a combination of the two is the most powerful! 

One habit-based goal might be to prospect 3 people a day, 5 days a week for the next 90-days. 

An achievement-based goal might be to enroll 2 new business partners and 10 new customers in the next 30 days. 

Either way, your goals should be specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and have a deadline. They should push you, but not so much that they make you believe you can’t achieve them. Write your goal statements out in positive, present-tense on a notecard and review them each day. 

With each goal, write down 3 motivations for achieving that goal. In other words — WHY do you want that goal? How will you BENEFIT from achieving it? 

Then, write down one way you’ll CELEBRATE your win! 

It can be anything from as simple as indulging in your favorite latte from the neighborhood coffee shop, to going on a shopping trip or on a nice date with your significant other. Whatever it is, pick something that motivates and inspires you, then follow through and really celebrate when you get there! 

Use the Simple Daily Actions Tracking Chart to track your progress and make sure you stay on track to achieve your goals!

Strategy #3: Decide On and Commit To the Right Daily Actions

In network marketing, success comes down to a few simple activities repeated over time to get results:

Networking, Inviting, Following Up and Teaching Those Who Join You How to Do the Same.

Decide on the numbers you'll commit to each week for these activities, and then commit to following through UNTIL you get results. Commit to the process until. It’s as simple as that! 

The Simple Daily Actions Tracking Chart will help you stay on track and recognize which of these areas you’re already excelling in, and where you can stand to get better.

Strategy #4: Plan Your Weekly Calendar

Every week, look at your upcoming schedule and determine: when will you FOR SURE work your business this week? 

You're looking for about 5-10 hours of interrupted activity that are non-negotiable on your calendar.

Then decide when you MIGHT work your business this week… when you're sitting in the school pick up line, or waiting for your daughter to get out of ballet class. When you can you maybe fit in some extra time in the pockets of your day?

And don't forget to also decide when you will NOT work your business this week! Unplug for focused family time, self care time, and for any other important commitments where you need to be 100% focused. When you create non-negotiable time to work your business, you can also create non-negotiable time to walk away from it.

And don’t forget to use your Simple Daily Actions Tracking Chart to keep yourself accountable and on track!

Strategy #5: Trust the Process, Let Go of the Outcome

If you really want to break out of your slump, you need to commit to the process and let go of the outcome. No matter what happens… keep going!

You won’t find a single leader sitting at the top of their company’s compensation plan who got there without obstacles and setbacks. Trust the process. Work the numbers. Stay in the game! 

In network marketing the only way you fail is if you quit! 

Jordan Adler, one of THE most successful network marketers in the WORLD, was in 11 companies without ever making a dime before he went on to earn 7-figures in his next company. 

Ask him and he’ll tell you what changed: himself. And his commitment to work his business consistently and professionally! 

Commit to being consistent. Commit to learning how to grow your business the RIGHT way. Practice long obedience in the same direction — in other words, taking enough of the right actions consistently over time until you get results. 

Print out your Simple Daily Actions Tracking Chart and commit to filling up a new chart every month for the next 12 months. I guarantee you cannot do that and still be in the same place you are today. It’s impossible! 

Keep your Why and your Goals in front of you. Create a plan, then commit to working your plan until.
