Coachable, Teachable, and Willing to Work on Yourself

By: Dave Schlueter


You have to Be Coachable, Teachable, and Willing to Work on Yourself.

Just a few weekends back I was at a Company training event for my primary business that was absolutely terrific. The atmosphere at Company events is something that has to be experienced it's not something that can be described. If you've been at events you'll know what I mean, if you haven't been there, then be sure to attend your next big company convention. You'll want to get as many people on your team there as possible. You'll be excited once you have. The effect and results will astound you.
Since that event the last several weeks have been spent designing new presentations, mastering new information gleaned from the event, and reflecting on all that I experienced. I've been trying to keep the experience as fresh as possible in mind and spirit. I wish that I wish I could duplicate the experience I had with the same zest and vigor, bottle it, and ship it out to everyone. I would make it immediately available for my own, and everyone else's teams. Sharing is the next best thing, and so what follows is just some of the insights and growth I've had from the event.
The following are some gold and silver nuggets gleaned from the event:
"You have to work as hard, or even harder on yourself than your business in order to succeed in this industry."
I couldn't believe my ears. Straight talk at last.... Someone just came out and told it like it is for a change. Most companies I've experienced beat around the subject, want you to sign up for their success club, buy their training, etc., but few ever come out and just lay it down so clearly as it was presented at this event.
"Your attitude is the foundation for it all. If you don't master personal development you can have the greatest product/presentation/and company in the industry and still you will fail." "Remember people join people in this industry, not products, not pay plans, and not opportunities." "They join you."
My background in success mentoring has provided me a differing perspective on what makes or breaks success in the industry then perhaps other teachers, mentors, and trainers in the field Many trainers hammer systems, tools, and trainings aimed at moving you to stellar MLM success. All you have to do is follow the simple outline and plan, or so they say. And to a large degree that is true. Unfortunately many of the so called MLM success plans only address the outside oneself aspects of the MLM Success Equation. These could be considered external techniques. The problem is most of the plans and outlines never provide a sound plan and reasonable expectations for the personal growth factor necessary in bringing up new network marketing recruits. These are the inside oneself aspects of the success equation, or the internal action steps required to succeed. If you haven't heard someone tell you yet that success is an inside job, then you need to start listening better, and even then that only half the truth. To really succeed in this industry you will need both, mastery of self (an internal job) and mastery of process (an external job).
Success is not a destination it is a process of becoming, the effect of small daily differences made in our lives. A slight edge if you will. It is a slight deviation from the course of action that everyone else is on. Success in not something you pursue it is something you become. Most of it is an inside job and this is where people seem to fail dreadfully and then cite an abundance of outside reasons as the cause. Good sound business and marketing systems in MLM work. We fo not need to re-invent the wheel of Network Marketing Success Strategies. What we really need to do is start re-inventing ourselves to fit the model that already works.
To illustrate this point the following questions all represent inside aspects of the success equation necessary for success in MLM. Answer these questions honestly and evaluate the distance between where you stand now and where you need to stand to succeed in achieving your goals. My guess is we could all use to get our self-improvement plans together.
Do you show up for Success regularly?
" Do you consistently make small improvements and take the necessary baby steps each day that will take you to the life you desire most?
" Does your attitude cause you to be liked, to be considered a person of value, the kind of person you would want to join and follow in business?
" Are you committed to the long haul that may be necessary for your development and the development of your business and your dreams
" Do you possess the necessary faith to take that first step before the way presents itself?
" Are you firm in your purpose and clear about your reasons why?
" Are you ablaze with a burning desire in your heart to achieve your dreams?
" Do your actions and deeds radiate integrity?
" Are you ready to make sacrifices and pay the price each day to achieve your dreams and goals?
You must understand one cornerstone principle to achieve recruting success in this industry. Without it you will fail. People join People not companies, products, or pay plans. Among other things you must present an attractive character and you must convey value to your prospects. They won't join you without it. You must have quality, value, and integrity to become persuasive. To do that you must convey primarily three things, Trust, Integrity, and Respect. Strive to be a quality person, a person of value and integrity, a positive enthusiastic addition to every environment you are in and you will do well.
The foundation formula for Your Success:
1.) Master Awareness. Listen, Sense, and Intuit. Become constantly awake to the opportunities that surround you every moment of every day. My question is this: how are you going to do this if you are constantly overcome with your own selfishness and the stinking thinking that accompanies it? How can you be clear headed and in tune with your environment if your head is clouded with garbage and you're wrestling with internal angst throughout the day. How can the concerns of others enter your being and your consciousness daily if that space is already full and occupied? If you are concerned about others, their situation, and being helpful, then take the time to show it. People will notice and be attracted to the change in you. You'll become more successful as a result.

2.) Your Attitude. How is your attitude influencing the general environment and the people arround you?. Would you be considered a positive or negative addition to every environment you are in? Do people feel like they've gained a new best friend after they meet you? Do you light up a room with your presence and charm or do you suck the life out of it? How would those who know you best rate you? What would they say about the attitude you display? Your attitude alone can cause you to be attractive or repellant in the eyes of others. If you were choosing your board of directors and the officers for your new multimillion dollar marketing company, would you want to choose you?

You cannot overestimate the value of a great attitude when it comes right from your core. It's worth more than gold and it is incredibly attractive to others. If you don't possess a great attitude that radiates from within you already, then I suggest you start making immediate plans to achieve one. No one needs to be perfect here, but all these elemnts of self will directly impact your results in this industry.

3.) Your Actions. Do you regularly seize opportunities to assist others, or do you rarely notice them? Do you make it a point to seek out the needs of others regularly, look for and provide solutions that will assist them, and help them get what they want and need most out of life? Do you lead by your own good example, or do you just follow the crowd? Do you follow through with your commitments and strongly back your word? Do you posess integrity? Are you waiting for opportunity to find you or are you out seeking and creating it each day?

Consistent action is the bedrock upon which you will build your business and success upon. Are you building your business firmly upon granite, or are you setting up camp in the sand? What would others answer about you? These questions and their answers all point toward the inner strategies of success necessary to succeed in MLM. By being honest with yourself you can fairly grade your performance. Chances are we'll all find an opportunity for our personal development plans to grow. It's all part of that slight edge difference in the actions we take every day that improve ourselves and improve our results. It is daily differences compounded over time that takes us to the lives and success we dream about.

Tips for that Slight Edge:
To get my mornings started right and put my attitude in the right place focused on the right things, I created an awesome video of inspiring and motivational quotes to start my day with. It's just one thing that I am doing differently since the company event to improve my marketability and my results. You are all welcome to try it out for yourselves as part of your daily regimens. It's one part of that slight edge strategy for the day. You'll find a link to the video below, or you can just visit my blog site. You'll find it under the motivational video tab at the top of the screen.
This is just one small perspective and off shoot that grew from teachings and inspiration acquired at the company event I attended.. Get yourself and your team to the next event and watch your self, your self-improvement plan, your business, and your income start growing.
