I recently put a post on my BE YOU SUCCESS COACHING page inviting Direct Sales Consultants and Leaders to comment on their toughest challenge, and I offered to assist with a helpful answer to their problem.
One sensational consultant wrote to me about needing to have the self-discipline to avoid distractions – and I say she’s sensational because there are thousands of consultants and leaders in our direct selling world who want to know the answer to that too – so by being courageous and asking help for herself… well done, this fabulous woman helps others! Superstar!
So let’s help you or someone on your direct sales team and talk about avoiding those distractions. You know; finding ‘stuff’ to do instead of doing the very things that will bring income to your party plan or trunk show business.
Whenever you feel a hot button inside about distractions in your direct sales business and the less than satisfactory outcomes you’ve been creating, there are really only 2 things you can do
#1 is CHANGE YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES
# 2 is CHANGE YOUR ATTITUDE TOWARDS YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES
Distractions are a part of life, and they are the space we CHOOSE to place our focus, in the moment.
Now where the distractions are life-rattling you and impacting a sense of security and certainty; they can absolutely become a very important ‘for now’ focus. The torchbeam shifts to these urgent priorities and this means it takes away focus from actions that you would normally step into to create sales, bookings, team growth and income.
So; if it’s a CHANGE YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES moment – this is where a ‘thank goodness’ gratitude, for your Direct Sales job, steps in!
You have genuine flexibility in Direct Sales, and so my tip for you here is to be kind to yourself and adjust your personal monthly goal. Adjust the sails, and give yourself an ‘at least’ base goal for the month, so you still feel a sense of strength in making it happen instead of letting it happen. Putting the words ‘at least’ before your monthly goal, is very powerful. It let’s your brain know there is a possibility we could still go beyond this goal, this month.
If however you notice your distractions are fear based, well let’s focus on what you want and the opposite of fear is confidence!
Know this; confidence can only ever come after action – courage comes first. Yes you can quote me – that’s Beverley Unitt with two T’s!
If this is you; you’re definitely in a CHANGE YOUR ATTITUDE TOWARDS YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES moment!
Staying self-disciplined to keep your focus on what you should be doing comes from being aligned with your purpose and clear on your personal values.
If YOU are not yet clear on WHY you are doing this direct selling career you chose, then – quite frankly – you are drifting without a destination. Chat with your leader for a purpose defining conversation and you can also view my webinar THE 3 SECRETS FOR CONSISTENCY & GROWTH IN DIRECT SALES. Watching that will definitely fire you up!
Your own intrinsic motivation is what truly keeps YOU going when the dips and troughs of direct selling happen, before the heights and rises! Those dips and troughs – they’re your learning moments – they are your growth moments and the self-discipline kicks in and you find your way through because you are clear on WHY this direct selling career, you’ve chosen, is important to you.
So there you have it;
CHANGE YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES or CHANGE YOUR ATTITUDE TOWARDS YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES.
And you could decide this, and believe it’s right for you:
“If I can’t (or won’t) change my circumstances, I’m in charge of MY ATTITUDE and so I’ll choose strategies to MANAGE MYSELF for best possible outcomes for ME!”
