Focus, is a bigger word than most people think. Focus, is what drives anything that you do. Focus, is what makes things happen. Focus, is key when trying to achieve any goal and Focus in your business is paramount.
It is probably one, if not the most, important thing in a business… especially a network marketing business. Same for a health or weight loss regimen. Does anyone force you to take a bite of cake or eat half? NO!!! Does anyone put a gun to your head to make you go to the gym? Same analogy…Does anyone force you to make a phone call??? NO! Does anyone make you talk to someone about your business? I highly doubt it.
It is a choice. Are you going to hold yourself responsible? YES! Make a commitment to yourself. How many people could you save financially by offering them their own choice!
Focus, will drive behavior. Being a focused leader is so very very important. Often times I see people getting sidetracked by unnecessary details. You can not control what a company does and you may not like it from time to time… but you can focus on your personal business and your team, that IS in your control.
You have to stay true to your vision. Often I see when someone has personal challenges they let their business fall off to the wayside. This is when you need to be more focused than ever. It creates momentum, it creates activity and motivating you to get off your butt and get into IPA’s. Often, when people break through the tough times, they make a big breakthrough in their business also. There are so many distractions out there do not fall into that trap. What do I mean by distractions…most times life (i.e. laundry, cleaning, menial tasks) and sometimes it is more serious but in fact most of the time it is an excuse.
We are still falling into the old adage of “go to school and get a job”. Folks, this is your wake-up call. That is a thing of the past. Empower yourself, do something you have NEVER done before.
Here’s the bottom line, your business, your performance is totally up to you. Not your team, not the company…YOU!! And you alone. Sure there are times when stuff happens but at the end of the day what can you do to keep your business moving forward? Things have a way of working themselves out. Did you start something right?
Finish it and do not get sidetracked.
