Through out your Network Marketing business build – the Universe is going to throw some massive challenges your way. Things that will hurt, things that will crush you, things that will make you feel like quitting.
And, in anything, there’s always going to be days where you want to kick the wall and are on the verge of quitting. Your resilience will be tested to it’s very edge. So how do we make sure that doesn’t happen? How do we raise our resilience – so we can get through the tough days?
Years ago, I was honoured to spend a few days in a very intimate training room with a great author and mentor of mine – John Maxwell. He taught me a simple exercise you can do to help improve your resilience – and I wanted to pass it on here.
Firstly, I want you to write down these 7 words;
These are the 7 drivers of human behaviour. Finding our purpose, having autonomy, building relationships, learning and progress, mastery of something, having money (or giving it away) and recognition of our work.
The second step – is I want you to go through each of the 7, and give them a rating out of 5, based on how important they are to you. It’s not a ranking against the others, it’s a rating of how important each of those drivers are to you.
Next step – look at, of the 7 drivers, how many you gave a 4/5 or a 5/5. The more you have – the more resilient you are. The more reasons you have to keep going. The deeper you can dive to find the tenacity to keep going. If you have 1 or 2, they are your primary drivers, easily identified – but there’s not enough internal motivation to keep you in the game when things get tough.
The more drivers – the more resilient you are. And that’s really the key.
So if you’re finding you are constantly coming up against brick walls – you need to dive deeper into personal development. Need to dive deeper into growing your character and finding more ways to stay motivated. The more reasons you have to keep going – the more reason you will have to keep going when challenges arise.
To your success.
