You must be willing to CHANGE with Eric Dye
I talk to so many people on a daily basis who tell me they want more in life, they need to pay their debts, they are unemployed or they need to make more –everyone has their desires and situation. The key to getting what you want is when you come to a point in your life where you are willing to make a change. If you need more – you need to do something different. If you need to pay your debt — you need to do something different. If you aren’t willing to change — you will not get the things that you desire in life.
If you are currently looking for an income opportunity I invite you to consider what I have been doing for nearly a decade by clicking here. Let me know if I can answer your questions.
One of the BIGGEST mistakes I see 95% of network marketers make is how they handle summers and the winter holiday period. And if you are doing this, it will KILL your business.
It is no secret that during the summer months and the Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years holidays, that the network marketing business has a tendency to slow down some. Most businesses do.
People go on vacation and there is a natural tendency to be more slack, take time off, be less active, buy less, etc.
But as a network marketer if you get lulled into this vacation cycle mentality for working YOUR business, you will NEVER, EVER have success in this industry.
Let me show you why, by demonstrating a typical network marketers work habits:
JOE Network Marketer comes into the summer months and mentally decides everyone is on vacation (Not true! No one gets a 3 month vacation from their job except teachers and they usually work a second job) and so he tells himself he is going to take the summer off as Ill. So right off the bat, that is 3 months out of the year he is not working!
Then around the middle of September, after the kids are back in school, he decides it is finally time to get back in action because EVERYONE is now back from vacation. (Again not true, but an easy way to mentally justify why he took the summer off).
So he starts back to work with a flurry, gets in the groove, prospecting, promoting, retailing product, etc.
The ONLY problem is it takes a couple of months to fill up the pipeline with prospects, get back in the swing of things and get the momentum going.
Ill by the time he does that, guess what? It’s the middle of November. And you know what that means, right?
Thanksgiving is coming and Christmas is right around the corner, and then New Years don’t you know.
I mean who works doing the holidays? What’s the point? Might as well wait until they are over. And besides there are so many good football games on. So before he realizes it, it is the middle of January and 2 more months have gone down the drain. And then the cycle starts all over AGAIN.
It takes another 2 months to get back in the groove. So it’s the middle of March, before he really gets humming.
He now has everything in place to REALLY start building for the next 2 good months – April and May! And boy does he.
BUT DARN IT ALL!!! It’s summer again. So he HAS to take summer off because EVERYONE is on vacation, right?
WRONG!!! Point blank – I am going to give it to you straight. This is the DUMBEST way in the world to build a network marketing business. Yet this is the cycle that most network marketers get lulled into. I see it happen every year. And it is probably one of the BIGGEST reasons why so many fail.
This example brings up two issues you have to address in your business. First, lack of discipline. Most people have never learned to discipline themselves to work for themselves. So they have a tendency to mentally give themselves all sorts of reasons and excuses why they should take time off. And let me tell you it is so easy to do.
Think about this, “If you had an employee who worked for you, the way you work your network marketing business, would you keep them or fire them?” Tough question, but the answer tells all. And if you don’t discipline yourself, who will? It’s not going to be your boss. He likes that fact that you work for him. If you want to be self-employed and make big checks, you have to learn to control your work habits.
If you want to achieve success in network marketing, you must discipline yourself to CONSISTENTLY work your business.
CONSISTENCY is the BIGGEST factor to your success in network marketing. More than talent or brains.
Second issue you need to address is: Incorrect thinking. Everyone is NOT on vacation.
Yes business does slow a little. But guess what? There are so many OTHER people who take this VACATION mentality; there is less competition in the marketplace. But more importantly… if you take the vacation attitude and slack off during the Summer and the Winter Holidays, guess what happens? You miss the 2 HOTTEST times of the year in network marketing.
When are they?
Mid-January to mid-April, and then mid-September to mid-November.
And if you don’t spend the summer and winter holidays actively working the business, filling that funnel with prospects, when the hot periods HIT, you will have nothing in the pipeline.
And instead of reaping the harvest, you will be spending HOT periods trying to plant seeds. You will be missing the most productive times of year, because you slacked off during slower times.
You will NEVER, EVER be able to create momentum in your business if you fall into this vacation mentality trap.
Use the slower times to be planting seeds, consistently filling that pipeline. NEVER letting it get empty or stagnant.
There is a time to sow and there is a time to reap.
By knowing the cycles of network marketing throughout the year, you can strategically put yourself in place to take maximum advantage of them.
There are definitely times to take personal or family vacations and mini breaks. But there is no way you can continually take extended VACATIONS from building your network marketing business, and expect to have success. It is just not going to happen.
Don’t cheat yourself out of the BEST, by not disciplining yourself and consistently working during the slower times of the year, so you can take MAXIMUM ADVANTAGE of the HARVEST times.
If you apply this one principle to your network marketing business, you will NOT believe the difference it can make in your income after one year.

Retarded Sales Behavior and The Reasons We Under-Perform. We’ve become a generation of retarded under-performing sales semi-professionals.
Instead of being thought-leaders we’ve become frenetic, selfish territory managers. Trading one Mickey Mouse sales idea for the next. Always looking for the quick (and easy) way to make our quota without needing to care too much about the people we happen to be dealing with at the moment.
And our retarded attitudes limit our ability to do anything outrageous.
It’s that simple.
Now before you start thinking that this discussion is another pretentious, irreverent look at intangible sales attitudes, think again.
In fact, forget about everything you thought you knew. Let’s start with the basics:
Webster’s dictionary defines retarded as: “to make slow; to delay the development or progress of a process or action; hinder or impede”
In essence, retarded sales behavior is about the self-limiting attitudes we put off fixing for way too long.
1. We retard getting therapy
Frankly, most of us need our heads-examined. Literally.
We’ve become a craft of neurotic protagonists all running around spouting the latest “closing lines” and hoping again hope that we have the luck to churn out a respectable quota this quarter.
It’s all silly. Olympic champions, super-star athletes, and high-performing executive all use smart peer pressure to bring out the best possible talent in whatever they are doing.
It’s a strategy we all need.
2. We retard doing what matters most
There are a dozen sales tasks we put off because they are scary – calling back decision-makers or prospecting for the right point-of-contact at our optimal contact. We put off doing the things that make us afraid, that make us vulnerable.
And that’s holding us back and making us losers. Instead of tackling what scares us most, we do what’s easy and harmless. And so what’s most important – increasing revenue – is something that never seems to happen.
It’s because we never get started working on it.
3. We retard learning what we don’t know
Ever notice how sales people never tell you the number of times that they fail. Certainly that makes sense. None of us want to talk about our idiot moments.
But those idiot moments are the lessons that make us outrageously successful. Right? You learn from your mistakes and avoid making them again. But if you put off ever learning, you never start the process of being successful.
Let’s be frank, it’s not what you do right that makes you bad-ass — it’s what you learn from what you used to do wrong.
4. We retard our investment in others
Instead of caring about others, we decide to keep the conversations about the weather, kids, and our lines of product. It’s all skin-deal and wonderfully boring. We don’t venture to care too much. If at all. Ever.
Frankly, in our minds, it makes sense that way. Why care about someone who doesn’t have any money to give to us.
But that’s completely wrong. It’s about giving to others first.
• As an attitude.
• As a way of life.
• As a belief system.
Look. Anyone can give when it’s easy, but you’ll transform your business when you give to others without trying to take first.
It’s the difference between being a rock star or in living in denial.
We’re retarded. Underperformers.
And we don’t need to be.
It’s sad how we limit our potential with our fear and denial and procrastination.
Live a higher standard.
Be the legend that you dream about.
It starts with doing that thing you still haven’t started yet.
