Network Marketers Keep Falling Short on the Execution
Since you are actively building your network marketing business chances are, you are constantly learning. And, those who may just be checking things out are also consuming a ton of content and opinions, right? So, with all this information and knowledge hanging around why are network marketing consistently falling short on execution.
If we are all learning much of the same tools, resources, etc. why do some excel and others fall flat?
Execution and Consistency (or lack thereof)
There are so many experiences that provide new and important information that enhance your skills and overall knowledge. Whether it be events, webinars, workshops, online courses, etc.
However, there’s a big difference between absorbing information and putting what you’ve learned into action. Without the execution, the training you receive will go to waste, so it’s important to have a strategy for implementing your learning.
Most of us know what we need to do, right?
We know we need to work out, but year after year we come up with excuses that prevent us from experiencing better wellness and health. And, we know we need to eat healthier foods but continue to eat toxic, chemically filled junk that makes us feel awful.
We know we need to save money and stop spending so much, but we continue to pile up stuff that we don’t need, living paycheck to paycheck. Or, we know that we need to spend more time with family and friends but we focus a majority of our attention on making a paycheck to pay for the stuff we no longer need.
These are all prime examples of where the execution fell short.
The same concepts can be applied to a network marketing business. We know what we need to do – see what others are having success doing, but we fall into something called analysis paralysis. Hopefully, the tips and strategies we are about to share with you can help you overcome hoarding all this knowledge and actually doing something about it!
Top 7 Tips on Turning that Knowledge into Execution
#1 Play into your Strengths
In order to take what you have learned and turn them into actionable steps, it’s important to follow research-based concepts, such as playing into your strengths. We all have our strengths help us get stuff done – efficiently. Apply your strengths to your SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, time bound) goals and get ready to grow! Take the knowledge you’ve learned that excites you and start executing it!
#2 Accountability Partners
Finding someone who can hold you accountable — more so, someone you answer to is ideal. You want it to be someone who will say ‘hey, did you get that live done?’. Should be someone actively building their business or projects too — someone who is not going to let your excuses fly. Additionally, this could be someone you debrief your information with. Share what you’ve learned and brainstorm together.
#3 Determine your Why
This piece comes before the learning. Determine or decide why you are getting this information. Let’s say there’s a webinar you have registered for all about Facebook Live videos. What do you hope to gain from attending? And, what will it help you do better, consistently and effectively. Lastly, decide how you are going to evaluate what you’ve learned. Here’s a hint GO LIVE!
#4 Audit Yourself
This could be a great time for some honest and real self reflection. Have a real look at your business, your activities, your productivity and execution. Where are the holes? Can you identify where things are missing the mark? We strongly encourage you to do this – even right this moment. Check yourself.
#5 Get your Mind Right
The first step is to get your mindset focused on the end result (goal) you want to achieve. Then, start;
Set the timer for 15 minutes and write down how you can get from point A to point B, and take tiny steps each day to achieve it. See yourself achieving your goal and it will happen – but you must start. Also, remember to celebrate the small wins and milestones along the way. They matter.
#6 Seek out a Coach or Mentor
Learning something may come easy. Execution is the hard part. Find a mentor or coach that has gone through what you are experiencing and has achieved your desired result. You don’t want to let other person down. In addition, you have someone to turn to when you are discouraged. Coaching and the right mentorship can help shorten the learning curve tremendously. They are also someone who has demonstrated applied knowledge successfully. There are the people you should be seeking direction from.
#7 Create an Action Plan
To experience a transformation or breakthrough (small or large) by implementing learned information, you must create an action plan to create habits. Nothing will ever become a part of who we are until it becomes a part of our habits. They say, it takes 21 days to create one – 21 days of consistently executing your knowledge. Take small steps towards transformation by writing goals and steps down to set accountability and understand your progress. Review this daily and set realistic goals to see success.
Bonus Tip: Always Document Takeaways
When you take a moment to document something you’ve learned from a training or session of some sort, this helps you start the execution. If you are part of our Social Impacters group on Facebook for example, we love when people share things they learned on a training, etc. This not only opens up dialogue about what you’ve learned, but sharing and teaching others is some of the best execution strategies ever!
