The Feeling of Failure Ep # Have you ever avoided setting a goal because you were...
Have you ever avoided setting a goal because you were afraid of how it might feel to fail? You’re not alone. The truth is that no one likes how it feels when they fail. You often go through life trying to avoid failure at all costs. But are you afraid of failing because of what it means, or is it because of the whirlwind of emotions failure can release?
You’re likely listening to this podcast because you want to improve either yourself or your network marketing business (or both!). If you’re like most, this probably isn’t the first time you’ve ventured into the land of personal development. Maybe you’ve read a book or two or even purchased a coaching course, hoping that it’ll help you breakthrough and crush those goals you’ve had for so long.
And in the end, did you get what you needed to make those goals? Or did you feel vulnerable and uncomfortable enough to where you decided it wasn’t worth it? Just to end up trying a different book or podcast the next time you needed a little boost.
Have you ever had the thought that if your audience was interested, they would have made a purchase by now? Do you feel like maybe if you just had some fresh eyes on your content, if you could just get one reel to go viral.. that you’d be able to hit that next rank?
This week we’re continuing the conversation revolving around the controversy of the LulaRich documentary. Kristen is focusing on the glorification of hustle culture and how we, as network marketers, play a part in either perpetuating or eliminating hustle in not only our own lives but in the entirety of the industry.
You’ve undoubtedly heard the shockwaves coming out of the network marketing community after the release of the documentary “LuLaRich.” If you’ve followed Kristen for any length of time, then you know she’s not one to shy away from controversy. And in this week’s episode, Kristen gets into the nitty-gritty of how when things go wrong in this business model, it’s important to see the lesson to be had instead of something you feel the need to defend.
What was your goal when you first decided to jump into network marketing? Did you think you’d be making 6 figures in your first 3 months? That you’d have no problem recruiting with such massive success under your belt? Or maybe you thought that you’d win a bunch of trips or whatever prizes your company gives away for being just so amazingly awesome? While all of this may technically be possible with this business model, it’s more often the exception and not the rule.
Have you ever shied away from selling a bigger price point to a customer because you didn’t think they could afford it? Or what about putting off investing in your business because you have a psychological issue with debt? Believe it or not, your thoughts on money can affect more than your business’s bottom line.
To DM or not to DM? That is the question. And the answer may not be what you’d expect.
In the world of social selling, we’re often so focused on the selling part that we totally forget about how to do the social aspect in a way that serves our audience. This week on the podcast, Kristen talks about the importance of reaching out and engaging with a relational mindset and how consistency once again is the driving force behind your future success as a network marketer.
Momentum in business can be defined as ‘the force that propels your business forward.’ At the beginning of the pandemic, many network marketers saw big booms in their sales and recruiting, which led to a belief that once everything went back to normal, they’d be back at square one. With no momentum in sight.
In the world of network marketing, seeing the end of the month creep up on the calendar can cause panic to kick in. You need one big push to hit rank or to make your income goal, and there’s only so much time left. It can be tempting to jump into hustle mode: messaging all the people, desperately posting all over Instagram, staying up all hours…
