How to Deal with Feeling Overwhelmed about Network Marketing
Want to know how to deal with feeling overwhelmed about all the things you make think you need to make Network Marketing work for you? Read on.
This feeling — being overwhelmed or experiencing anxiety — comes from trying to do it all at once. You may see a long list of skills to learn and tools that others use to make it work for them, thinking you need it all and wonder how you are going to handle it.
If you feel it is too much, it might be, at least for now.
The solution is simple. Remind yourself and your team to go at their own pace.
Take one step at a time. Master step one before proceeding to step two. For example, learn the skills of breaking the ice with the right words before mastering the art of recruiting.
Perhaps an illustration will help with how to deal with feeling overwhelmed about this business.
Let’s say you inherit a restaurant that has not been opened for a year. You know nothing about the restaurant business but you inherit it.
You decide that to learn the restaurant business, you will start out slow. Instead of feeding 1000 people on opening night, you will start out by feeding only two people your first month.
Opening night starts with how to deal with being overwhelmed by learning what it takes to feed only two people. The method of feeding two people is minimum. You buy and cook the meal for two people and cleanup is a breeze.
Most people in network marketing start out with only two people and can handle that. A little bit at a time is easy to do.
The second month of business, you decide to add a couple of tables and feed four people. Feeding four people requires a bit more preparation. The mechanics of buying food, cooking it and serving it are the same for two people. The time it takes to serve four people is a few minutes longer than serving two.
Since you have learned what it takes to feed four people, you feel the confidence in learning a little bit more about what it takes to feed six people on the third month
On the fourth month, you decide six people is easy to feed and so let’s go for double or nothing and feed twelve people. At this point, you are not feeling overwhelmed all the time about the restaurant business and what it takes to make it successful.
By the end of the first year in business and doubling the crowds each month, you find you can feed a thousand people a day without a problem.
When you feel overwhelmed remember the story of the restaurant and start at your own pace and learn a little bit at a time.
