Accountability in Your Direct Sales Business
Think of the people who have the type of success you want. What do they all have in common?
A work ethic! How is your work ethic?
If the top income earner in your company met you for coffee and asked you to get out your calendar and show/tell what you did last week to work your business, would you be happy with what you have to show and tell?
Be your own best coach.
Track your actions.
Track your results.
Use a simple notebook or text note on your computer or phone.
Set goals at the beginning of the week. These can be based around intentions, because you control that.
Tally actions and results at the end. Reward yourself for achievements. Be tough on yourself for falling short.
Consider getting an accountability partner.
Not your upline or anyone on your team. Ideally, someone cross line who you can grow with.
Ideally, you want someone who matches your drive and commitment. It can take some time to find this.
First, determine what you are truly committed to and then let your upline know. Ask if she/he might be able to help you locate a few people who match this same intensity,
Have a few phone conversations first. Decide together how you want to set things up - check in twice weekly? Daily, Phone, text, FB?
Decide on rewards and consequences. Maybe a fine to each other.
Be sure you set a timer and don’t let it ever turn into a complaining or negative environment.
Be honest with each other and give each other space to leave or move on if it’s not working. This is why it should not be someone super close to you.
Keep it more business oriented.
I’ve mentioned we are going to do a book of the month on this show for the coming year. I promise I have chosen 12 books that if you just stick with these 12 books, you can take yourself and your business all the way to the top
The first book we will be reading is Feal the Fear and Do it Anyway, by Susan Jeffers. It’s in the show notes so you can find and reference it.
This is not a Network Marketing book, but it is awesome for anyone who wants to get Unstuck!
We all have fear, and some fears never go away. But, that doesn’t mean we have to let them limit us.
From the book -
With dynamic techniques and profound advice, Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway has guided so many readers around the world to turn their fear, indecision and anger into power, action and love. Learn the tools that will vastly improve your ability to handle any situation so that you can become powerful and decisive in the face of your fears. Discover that everyone has the same fears but, by applying the wisdom that Susan Jeffers offers in this breakthrough book, you can literally feel the fear…and do it anyway!
In this case, you know that you don't like the fact that lack of trust in yourself is stopping you from getting what you want out of life. Knowing this creates a very clear, even laser-like, focus on what needs to be changed. You don't have to scatter your energy wondering why. It doesn't matter. What matters is that you begin now to develop your trust in yourself, until you reach the point where you will be able to say:
WHATEVER HAPPENS TO ME, GIVEN ANY SITUATION, I CAN HANDLE IT!
This book will help keep you accountable.
