If you want to change your financial situation through direct sales opportunities, you must be careful not to undermine yourself. As one who has worked in direct sales, I know that it is easy to become your own worst enemy. Therefore, as you consider your direct sales career be aware of these six obstacles.
Underestimating yourself: Do not underestimate your abilities. Direct salespeople come from many different backgrounds and education levels. You will be able to do it.
Experiencing a traumatic life event: Life has its difficulties. It has its moments of great success and hardship. If you experienced a traumatic event, would you quit your job? No, so do not let life’s events stop your direct sales opportunities.
Indulging in self-deprecation: Do not put yourself down, not even as a joke. You must know you are a winner. You owe it to yourself to build yourself up. Comparing yourself to others: Do not compare yourself to others. You will always find someone greater than you or someone less than you. The important thing is to appreciate your abilities and do your best.
Overly influenced: Do not be overly influenced by others. Sometimes your loved ones say things they think will protect you. Sometimes others are afraid you will be successful. Learn to think for yourself.
Allowing Fear to Be in Control: Everyone feels fear at some time or another, but he or she sticks to the plan and move on to success. Never let fear stop you, feel the fear but work on your plan. Direct selling can be the opportunity of a lifetime for many, and a blessing to a struggling family. Through direct sales, you can grow, and develop your hidden talents. The earning potential is unlimited. The harder you work the more money you make.
Frank and I are motorcycle enthusiasts and both ride a Harley Davidson. It is so nice and relaxing for me to take a ride somewhere on a beautiful summer day. We try to ride as often as possible and do manage to get out to a few of the motorcycle rallies throughout the year. My favourite place so far is the Sturgis Rally which takes place in the gorgeous Black Hills of South Dakota. I feel it is one of the most beautiful areas to ride and there is so much so see and do there. Our ultimate dream is to have the means and the ability to take motorcycle tours throughout other parts of the world.
