No Vision, No Goals, No Success
Defining success requires that you figure what you want AND how you're going to get there.
The great business leader, Jack Welch, put it best when he said, "Good business leaders create a vision, articulate the vision, passionately own the vision, and relentlessly drive it to completion.
" What that means for you, is that in order to succeed in the MLM business you need to keep your final goals in sight.
And you need to know the difference between long term and short term goals.
Short term goals are specific actions you will take to get things done today and this week, but long term goals are the reason for doing those things-they are the real goals.
Long term goals are what you have to keep in mind as you build your career.
Many times people forget this as they construct their careers, opting for the short term reward rather than keeping the real goals in mind.
Keep this in mind as you go about your daily work.
Here is some goal setting tips: 1.
Take 10 minutes each day writing your daily goals.
Make sure to put it in writing and do it the first time you sit down at your desk.
Goals should be clear and actionable, such as "Get 5 people to come to the Saturday presentation," or "Convince Jack to help me with those business leads.
" You should be able to clearly see if you made your goals at the end of the day.
If you fail to make a goal, don't be too hard on yourself.
Spend some time either at night or the next morning, accessing why you did not succeed, and look to incorporate what you find into your strategy at the very next opportunity.
Remember that long term strategies take time to implement.
Set ambitious long-term goals.
Your long term goals, on the other hand, can be slightly more subjective.
For example, you might have your goal as Doubling sales for the following year or Becoming the Number One Salesperson in your area.
Put up visual statements of your core principles.
I am reminded of how Google had its mantra "Don't Be Evil" as it unofficial rule.
You should post your own core principles on your wall above your calendar just above eye level to help keep you focused.
Mine, "Take life by the TAIL!" is right above my desk as I'm writing this.
And also, don't forget to have a glass of wine and friends over on the weekends to recharge the batteries.
