Don't Chase People – Will Smith!
The Monday Motivational Plaque
In our business, in Network Marketing, we hear things like, "You can not say the wrong thing to the right people", and "People stay for a season, or for a reason", and at times it can be hard to work out why, or who this will apply to.
Some people who you think will be great, and you "just have this feeling" about can be ones that just do not even start, do nothing, and disappear…. And perhaps we acted in a way that was not attractive to them, or they sensed something, or worse still, we told them!
Have we piled on too much pressure already?
We need to act like ourselves, true, BUT, we need to be a certain version of ourselves… Not stressed, Not applying any pressure on people, and not looking desperate.
We need to be:
Very supportive, without being like a "Mother Hen"
Blasé about what their involvement will do for us
Laser focused about wheat we can do for them
Value everyone. but
Rely on no one
In essence, we need to have a Positive Posture.
We hear, and I feel often forget, that "If we help enough people get what they want, you can have everything that you want." – Zig Ziglar
In essence, we have to be, and the working environment around us has to be, "attractive"!
They have to know that when they speak to you you are going to be giving the sort of advice they need, to help them, not just shuffle them into a position that is the best for us. We have had that happen to us, and it is not a good feeling when you find that out.
If you need someone to be in a certain postilion, and the people you have are not "stepping" into that role – either that do not want that for themselves, or currently they do not believe they could, then instead of trying to coerce anyone, simply go out, and look for someone new, until you find several people who too would like to be in that position.
Your people will them know that you are not the sort to shuffle people around to your benefit…. If people are happy where they are, you will let them be happy. If will not stop you from making your organization be the shape it needs to be. Also, they will see that, when they are ready to move to a higher position you are willing to work with the people who volunteer themselves.
Practice this, and you will see over time that indeed the people around you are the ones who are "The Right people". People who were around you, and were negative, or generally where always skeptical will have a smaller place in your life, and their effect on you will be diminished.
These people maybe family members or friends, so will still be there, but perhaps you will have less contact with them. You will have so many positive people to be around, you will naturally gravitate towards them, as they too will gravitate towards you!

often, and see if it helps you too!
