Success Rule #13 Focus on the task at hand.
“What you choose to focus your mind on is critical because you will become what you think about most of the time.”
- Noel Peebles
“Concentrate all your thoughts upon the work at hand. The sun’s rays do not burn until brought to a focus.”
- Alexander Graham Bell
“No life ever grows great until it is focused, dedicated, disciplined.”
- Harry Emerson Fosdick
“Most people have no idea of the giant capacity we can immediately command when we focus all of our resources on mastering a single area of our lives.”
- Anthony Robbins
Network Marketing is seriously a wonderful way to greatly improve your financial future, however, as you probably are beginning to understand there are certain rules that you must follow consistently to make progress. Please see links at the bottom of this post to catch up on my previous success rule posts.
Our success rule today is “Focus.” This rule at first may seem a little “simple,” but you’d be surprised how easy it is to become unfocused and lose momentum, resulting in a loss of profit for your business.
When you find a network marketing company you’re happy with, make sure you focus on this one company until you get it pumping along. There are many business opportunities online these days all vying for your attention. Don’t join them, no matter how alluring they may seem. They will only serve to distract you from building a thriving online empire with the company you chose in the first place.
Obviously if you find you’re in a company that turns out to be lemon, find a better company. Otherwise stay where you are and learn to get laser focused, you’ll do far better if you do.
Now, I’m not against working multiple programs, but if you’re a beginner I strongly suggest that you start with and focus on one business only. Later as you become more experienced you can add another program. I actively market three programs, and I can stay focused on all three at the same time. However, I didn’t start out this way. I first gained some experience then when I was ready I added my second program and then my third.
To be honest I did try to market five programs concurrently but it was too much work and I began to lose focus and my business suffered. I’m still a member of all five programs but I’m only active with three. This works well for me now.
So then, get focused and remain focused on one program until you’re seasoned enough to take on more, if that’s what you wan to do.
