No one is born a leader. Instead leaders are developed daily.
The good news is that you don’t need to be “successful” in MLM and earning the big bucks in order to be a leader. It’s all in your mindset and Inner Game.
Success in MLM requires you to “believe you have achieved the success you want to achieve.”
You must see it before you achieve it.
The best way to grow yourself and be the leader you aspire to be is to start ACTING like a leader today.
Here are 7 things you can do each day that will make you a stronger leader.
1) Play till the whistle blows
You can see this quality in top athletes. They play hard no matter what the score is and you can’t tell what the score is based on their efforts. They play hard till the game officially ends.
The same applies to your MLM business.
Whether you are presenting or just helping out at a presentation, work hard till the last person leaves in your presentation. Don’t just leave cause your prospects have left. Stay and work hard till the end.
2) Practice Good Communication
Most issues and conflicts are caused by poor communication. The lack of clarity or lack of frequency of communication causes issues.
All leaders are information hubs so make sure you communicate clearly and frequently.
3) Work Hard
Always work harder even when you don’t think you need to work hard.
This does 3 things.
First, it creates the habit of working hard when you REALLY do need to put in the extra effort.
Second, it inspires others to follow your example. You always attract people who are like you. If you are lazy, you will attract a lazy downline. If you work hard, you will develop an organization with a strong work ethic.
Third, hard workers always tend to be luckier than others. Luck is when hard work meets opportunity.
4) Be a Giver
All successful leaders are givers because they know that the more you give the more you get back.
It’s strange but that’s how things work in this universe.
So share openly what you’ve learned with others. People will appreciate your generosity and also your strong conviction of the law of abundance
5) Admit Your Mistakes
Be responsible and own up to your mistakes. If there is a problem and it is yours, then own it.
Accountability forces people to work on the solution instead of wasting time to find whose fault it is.
6) Edify and Promote Others
Always edify and promote other leaders, your team and your company.
Learn to catch people doing something right. Most people are quick to criticize but slow to praise but as a leader you will impress people by doing the opposite.
7) Be Positive
Never criticize, complain nor condemn. Instead be positive.
Cynicism always kills team work and is seen as defensive and selfish. It’s one of the easiest ways to get people to dislike you.
Leadership is Developed Daily
Even if you don’t have one downline, you can start becoming a leader within your team and community.
As long as you are doing these activities daily your leadership will increase daily and will develop over time.
