The Importance Of Personal Development
The practice of personal development in the ever challenging life of a Network Marketing professional is very key if success is ever to be achieved.
As a matter of fact, its been said that “the profession of Network Marketing is personal growth disguised as a business.”
Our profession is the only activity that puts the mind into a yo-yo effect in that emotions are forever changing. From excitement to discouragement. From victory to seemingly defeat. The mind in this profession is forever being tempered and tested.
If a person’s mind isn’t daily exposed to positive material, the hopes of ever achieving personal goals in this industry will not come to fruition.
Because the human mind is designed to be afraid or fearful. It’s a means of protecting itself from danger. But all too often, I’m afraid to say that, most of our fears are often self-imposed, unrealistic, and given to us by our perception of what is.
There have been many people having lofty dreams for their family who have fallen by the way side because they have failed in the endeavor of developing their minds.
Developing Ones Mind Is Of Utmost Importance
There is a particular learning curve that comes with being involved in this amazing industry of Network Marketing.
For instance, learning to have the proper mindset when rejection is thrown at you can only be defeated if the mind has already been trained or conditioned for it. There are and will be many situations in which those who have no idea of how this industry works will come face to face with. This is where personal development steps in.
Furthermore, there WILL be days when making a call, prospecting, and following up just won’t be on the agenda. Because the mind just won’t be right where it needs to be. That’s why personal development is so crucially necessary.
How Do We Strengthen Our Minds?
For some, listening to audios/CD’s can be a means of development.
For some, listening to music.
And for others, reading a good book pertaining to our industry is what does the trick.
It really doesn’t matter how one goes about in training their mind. It’s about exposing and feeding your mind on a DAILY basis.
Below is a book that I personally have in my library and I highly recommend it for the aspiring entrepreneur.
