What do most people have in common with Garfield? No, it’s not lasagna… they hate Mondays! Honestly, I really don’t understand it. I love Mondays, just like I love every other day of the week. When you find something you truly enjoy doing, you feel excited to get up and get started… no matter what day it is!
If you’re running a network marketing business, I guarantee you’re right there with me. You decided to take on this work because you’re passionate about helping people! But, just because we love the work and the people we get to hang out with every day doesn’t mean we don’t need a little inspiration every now and then. I wanted to share some of my favorite inspirational thoughts and quotes that help me rock my network marketing business. These are the words that get me super excited to start my week and do BIG things!
“Success is a series of small wins.”
This is one of my favorite things to remember when it comes to network marketing. You’re truly building your own empire, and it doesn’t happen overnight. I like to take a little bit of time at the end of every day to reflect on my small wins, and celebrate them as the big accomplishments they are. If you listen to any successful business owner talk about their journey, it is never one big break that got them there. It’s lots of little steps, small decisions, and brave risks that all added up to their big success.
“We convince by our presence.”
This quote by Walt Whitman is so great for network marketers to internalize. Yes, we’re selling products, and these products are absolutely wonderful (otherwise why would we go all in on them?) but really, we’re not going to convince people to buy because we can rattle off all of the benefits of the products. Ultimately, we are going to convince people to buy or join us because of our warm, contagious presence. Be a blast to be around, be positive, and be genuine! You’ll have fun, and everyone you meet will have fun, too.
“Leap and the net will appear.”
John Burroughs was a wise man, and this quote is one I live my life by. You can analyze and weigh out every decision until you’re blue in the face, but ultimately, you’re going to have to take a leap. In network marketing, those that are afraid to leap stay on the same path they’re on forever. They don’t stretch themselves to see what they’re capable of! You got into this business to do big things, and as awesome as it would be to be able to just write “do big things” in your planner, it doesn’t work like that. You’re gonna have to leap and have a little faith. Your net will appear and you will be SO glad you pushed yourself to go there.
“Real queens fix each other’s crowns.”
The biggest thing I love about network marketing is the spirit of togetherness that it inspires. Business does not have to be cutthroat, in fact, I hope the world at large stops telling (and selling) that story to aspiring entrepreneurs. Real success comes when you build people up, and help them uncover their natural abilities and gifts. It’s reminds me of that other great quote, “A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle.” Network marketing is built on this principle, and it energizes me to collaborate and learn from others. It makes me feel so supported to know that someone is watching out for me, just like I’m watching out for them.
Do you have any quotes that you love? If you’re anything like me, you’ve got them hanging up at your desk, on your coffee mugs, and all over your Instagram feed. There’s nothing wrong with surrounding yourself with the inspiration you need to rock your network marketing business!
