What You Do Not Know Can Kill You in Network Marketing
Ever heard it said what you don’t know could kill you? The truth is what you do not know can kill you, especially in Network Marketing.
The definition of frustration is not knowing what we don’t know. That means we can never know what we don’t know, because we don’t know what to learn.
What you do not know can kill you or frustrate you in Network Marketing unless you have the skills
Everyone in Network Marketing has felt this frustration at least once. Things go wrong, but we don’t know why.
When you don’t know what to do, what to say, and when to do it and say it, you will end up frustrated, ready to pull your hair out, and quit.
You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know
Here is what every prospect wants from us:
- They hate their lives and are looking for a plan.
- They are looking for someone who knows where they are going.
- They want to know if that person has the skills to take them along safely.
All our prospects look at us and say to themselves, “If I join you on your journey, will I die along the way.”
Our prospects don’t want to die. They don’t want to linger with the what you do not know can kill you feeling. They want to follow people with trained skills.
Prospects can smell desperation. Prospects can sense incompetency.
In just a few seconds after meeting you, the program in the back of their minds detect that if they join you on your journey, they would die or be safe. They know you don’t have the skills to take them along safely or you do.
Positive thoughts, singing company songs, pictures for your vision board won’t matter if you don’t know what you don’t know.
What you do not know can kill you if you don’t know how to do Network Marketing.
What’s the Bottom Line?
So, what you do not know can kill you.
Prospects made decisions quickly. The good news is that we only have to be competent for the first few seconds.
If we can get the first 20 or 30 seconds correct and do it with confidence, prospects will want to be on our team. They will make immediate decisions that they want to follow us on our successful journey.
You say Dale help me I don’t know what to do.
Two ways of getting this aura of competency.
First, personal development. Nobody wants to follow a gloom and doom person. Personal development makes us better people with great attitudes and confidence. That is why people are attracted to other people who are positive.
Personal development gets us started.
But we need more. Nobody wants to follow a positive idiot on a suicide mission.
Second, we need hardcore skills. When we speak concisely with the correct words, prospect’s “feel” our competency. They are confident that we know what we are doing. They will sense we will get to our destination and they will feel safe coming along with us.
So, what you do not know can kill you, right? Yes, it can frustrate you, It can cause you to quit. So, let’s find out what to do with the skills to do it.
