Do you believe that the top earners in your network marketing company know something that you don’t? The answer is no. They probably know MANY things that you don’t! With an average background you can have the same above-average achievement, but you must know the secrets they aren’t telling you in order to succeed. Money brings a sense of power and positioning, but these people had to start somewhere. That somewhere is right where you are now.What did they do on a daily basis that made all the difference? Surprisingly, it all can be done in a matter of minutes! There are 1,440 minutes in every day, but just changing what you do for ten of them allows you to eat filet mignon instead of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. It doesn’t take money and it doesn’t take a huge downline organization. It takes a willingness to consistently accomplish the following tasks every single day without fail.In order to be successful, you have to stop wasting time. When you get an email or a fax, look at it once and be done with it. Make some sort of decision to either throw it away or attend to it at that very moment. Unsuccessful home-based business owners waste approximately 40 hours every single year re-reading emails, faxes and mail without acting on them. If your inbox is clogged with e-mails, attend to them or delete them.Successful home-based business owners know specifically how many hours of productivity they have in their capacity when energy, creativity and concentration are high. The rest of the day is hit or miss, depending on who calls you and what distractions pull you away from your activity. Make a list every morning of the 5 most important things that you need to accomplish by the end of the day. Decide to be productive until you finish them all.Take your list of the your 5 important goals and write the estimated time to do that task next to each one. Plan ahead for interruptions, including the telephone and any timely errands that need to be made. Have specific times set aside when you can either take calls live or make return calls. Successful home-based business owners know that they cannot attack the day without some kind of pre-planned order.After you have written your 5 goals and figured out what time you can accomplish them, write them into your personal calendar. If you know a certain task is going to take several hours, set the time aside as early as possible. Many times we like to get the easy stuff out of the way, but as the day escapes us we find ourselves facing the most important, time-consuming goals late in the day when we are tired and running out of time.Now that you’ve written down what you have to do, get to doing it! Since you’ve planned 4-5 hours worth of work in the day, you’ve got some slack in the line in case interruptions occur. They will happen, probably more often than you want, so it is important to just get right back on the job as soon as you have handled them. Don’t set it aside until the following day. That’s not how home-based business owners become successful. You have to be both the boss and the employee.The final step is to get rid of the clutter in your life. Ask yourself repeatedly, “Do I really need this?” The failing home-based business owner has too much clutter in their lives, which clutters their business. They waste over 70 hours per year looking for missing office equipment, papers, bills and that sandwich that was left over from lunch. Don’t file things you will never look at again. Reduce your clutter and move forward without worrying if you will ever use something again.These six simple steps have the ability to dramatically kick-start a stalled business, but none of them will work without discipline. You must make sure you get yourself into action and do what you write down, every day without fail, no exceptions. Your discipline is in direct proportion to your desire. If you want something, get excited about it. It will make you move that much faster toward getting it and motivation won’t be a problem anymore.What happens when you follow the six steps with as much discipline and motivation as you can possible muster up inside of you, and you still can’t seem to turn a profit? You probably need to take a good look at the kind of tasks your education is telling you to accomplish. Sometimes we see things looking so good on paper, but in reality they aren’t really helping us grow a successful home-based business.If you are in a program that is forcing you to spend tons of money on a weekly or monthly basis, the six steps outlined above probably won’t have much validity. Numbers games, expensive lead systems and outdated techniques only work as long as you are constantly feeding them with your bank account. Start looking for proper marketing trainings that offer your money back if they don’t work.Just imagine the success of your business and your willingness to motivate yourself with tasks that are guaranteed to work. The sky would be the limit!
