It wouldn’t be a healthy Friday without Cinco Bala. This weeks top 5 lessons, hacks and quotes I’ve been pondering, applying and battling.
For those of you who are new, this is a concept I took from Tim Ferriss. (This is just focused on MLM and online marketing) If you don’t subscribe to his newsletter. You should do it.
Lesson in Network Marketing: Don’t Cater To The Weak –Cater to the weak if you want a weak team.
Serving does not mean doing it for them. Nor does it mean telling people what they want to hear.
Leadership is helping someone achieve their goals long after the emotion in which they made the decision has left them.
So many networkers want to “help” people that they hurt them. Their heart is in the right place but their actions are not.
The first rule of leadership in this business is never, ever lower your standards to meet theirs. They are joining YOU because they want a better life, not because you want a more mediocre one.
“Don’t lick the lollipop of mediocrity or you’ll suck forever.” – My pastor.
Next Lesson in Network Marketing: Don’t Answer What Can Be Found – A perfect companion to not catering to the week.
Lots of people ask questions and that’s ok. It’s GOOD when downline asks questions. It means they’re interested and want to learn. But it’s BAD when you give them too many answers.
Yep. It’s bad to answer their questions. Being the answer man or woman is not intelligent. It’s shortsighted.
Desiring to be the “go to girl” or man is not only counterproductive to duplication, it’s egotistical. From a duplication perspective, I want my team to completely forget who I am.
So when my team asks me a question, I point them to a resource that can answer their question a COUPLE times. After that I simply let them know “He who seeks, will find.”
If I don’t have a resource that will answer their question, I will create it, then point future people to it.
Because the resource is duplicatable. I am not.
A downline’s ability to seek answers is duplicatable. I am not.
Case in point, we had one of the most amazing people on our team ask a question about the compensation plan that I had to personally answer for a while. I knew that we didn’t have a good resource to answer her questions so I took care of it then and there.
But THEN I made it a priority to make a resource that not only I can use for future inquiries but so can she.
If you’re interested in seeing how I explain a compensation plan, here is the video I made.
Ingrain this in your team early or suffer the consequences of having a full time job answering Facebook messages and texts all day.
Mindset Lesson: Your Goals Are Beyond Your Comfort Zone – “3600 calories.”
Are you serious?
“Yes, yes I am.” echoed Luke’s words…
My now personal trainer reminded me that the #1 reason I’ve never hit my fitness goals was that I wasn’t eating enough.
That might sound funny if you’ve struggled with LOSING weight but believe it or not, lots of “hardgainers” out there actually struggle BIG time with gaining weight. And while it’s somewhat nice later in life, it actually sucks in high school, college and any other time when physical superiority matters.
Personally, I think eating, sleeping and pooping is a waste of time. The only reason I haven’t tried to make myself an android is because I force myself to believe that “God made me a human for a reason.” 😉
Because of that, I’ve typically eaten the minimum required to survive followed by sporadic moments of 2,000 calorie burgers. Hold the salad, thanks.
But thanks to a series of UN?fortunate events, I’ve officially hooked up with Luke to not only destroy me in the gym but make me beg for mercy while staring at 795 chicken breasts.
After nearly suffocating to death multiple times on protein shakes I’ve come to the realization that this is exactly like business (something inside my comfort zone) in the fact that progress lies OUTSIDE our comfort zone.
Choosing to live there is a choice, not happenstance.
Quote I Love: “All cruelty springs from weakness.”
Book I’m reading: The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership – I (think) I’m re-reading this and wow. If you’re looking to build a team rather than just a group, you NEED to get this now and implement it NOW.
