When you entered into direct sales, you probably had a vision. You wanted to quit your JOB. You wanted to pay down debt. You wanted to have some me time. You wanted to be able to travel. Or maybe it is a weight loss vision – you know the one that has you sitting on the beach in a bathing suit without trying to coverup while still enjoying the sun.
Our “why” is what motivates you towards that vision. It is the emotional connection that you have every day with why you are doing what you are doing. For some this takes time to find – I can attest to that. For others, it is very easy.
The next step is to set goals for ourselves based on what we truly want and need from our business. They remind how far we need to go but they also remind us how far we have come. When we get off track, they are the thing that pulls us back on track. It also helps us to CELEBRATE those baby steps towards success.
Goals should stretch you….. you know, slightly out of reach but still attainable with a little bit of work.
We often rattle off goals because they sound good but do we really think about them, ponder them or what they mean. I encourage you to not only think about but write down the answers to these questions:
- If you experienced the ideal month, what would happen in your business?
- Ideally, how many shows would you like to hold each week
- If you could choose the actual days of the week your hostesses would host, what days would you choose?
- How many customers are you willing to reach out to, to make sure this happens?
Okay, NOW list at least 5 areas in your business you feel challenged and then, list the goals that will support you in shifting the challenge to a solution. The opposite of adversity is “the solution”. Here is an example: I am challenged with recruiting new team members because I often miss the cues. My goal is to have 3 conversations with other successful consultants who have mastered the skill of recruiting.
See how easy it is to change the mindset when it comes to struggles or problems in your business. If you have an area that you struggle with, train on it because in the end you will master it. Another tip is “stop saying that you “struggle” or “I’m not good at”. Negative statements placed in the universe brings negative results. By changing my wording from “I’m not good at recruiting” to “I love to sharing the financial benefits of Thirty One with everyone” – I am getting more leads for potential recruits.
What are your goals for the next month, the quarter or the year? Share them with us.
Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
