How important is Self Confidence in Attraction Marketing?

Self Confidence is one of the most important aspects of Attraction Marketing. A person who shows self confident is far more attractive than one who appears to have low self esteem.

But it doesn’t mean that if we don’t have Self Confidence we are better off not trying to attract people. Attraction Marketing helps building that Self Confidence through the acquirement and practice of skills.

What if you already have low Self Esteem? How do you turn that around?

I’ve paid attention to a couple of moms during the last few days.

One is very worried about the excess baby weight, feels bad about herself and doesn’t like her new body at all. Moms know that feeling. It can take a long time to get back the pre-baby body. It can be a roller coaster. It’s hard to be patient and very easy to place our worth in our physical appearance instead of who we really are.

I felt sorry and wanted to help her.

The other mom looks very happy. She stayed home when her youngest son was born and is back to work. Whether wearing her working clothes or not, she looks very confident. I don’t know if she has issues with her self image because it doesn’t show. She walks straight and looks ahead with security.

I admire her and want to be her friend.

Our emotions and our Self Confidence change from time to time. We all feel Low Self Esteem sometimes. It can be extra weight, the lack of professional satisfaction or any other reason.

But we also have the power to build up Self Esteem and Self Confidence, even in the midst of a Low period. We have to recognize our insecurities and our potential, be positive and smile, look at the things that we do have instead of resenting the ones we don’t, remember our goals and our accomplishments, etc.

Who do you want to be? I want to be the mom with Self Confidence that Attracts people.

Three neccesary skills you need to thrive in Network Marketing.

Last week I went to Long Beach, New York with my three children to pick my mom and niece up.

They are visiting with us for few more weeks and went there to spent few days with my cousin (the daughter of the aunt I talk about in How to Ask for Referrals))

What was supposed to be 4 hours ended being 9, including breaks. I made a terrible mistake and had to take in the consequences.

I never thought I would have to drive through Brooklyn, Queens and other areas that my GPS got me into. Why didn't I get directions from Mapquest in the first place?

The important thing is that we got there and my children impressed me and made proud with their patience and good attitude.

On our way back my cousin's husband gave me directions that would help me avoid traffic.

Of course, I made another mistake and I ended up driving in Chinatown, Manhattan.

I had said before that I would never drive there. Are you kidding me? I don't want to drive in Lima, Peru, where I'm from. Why would I drive in Manhattan?

But I did it.

What does anything have to do with the skills you need to succeed in Network Marketing? Instead of breaking it in multiple posts like I usually do, I've decided I'll give everything here.

Our adventure made me reflect on three important skills we all need to thrive in Network Marketing. I keep thinking that Network Marketing moms already have them.

My goal with this post is to help you realize that we have what it takes to succeed in MLM.

The first one is resilience. Only those who quit, fail. If you decided that you gave everything and it didn't work for you, I respect your decision to quit. But we know that we always have more to give.

To thrive in Network Marketing we have to keep on going, whether we didn't make a sale in a month or if we haven't signed up anyone yet.

On my way to New York I felt like going back home at least once.

But I didn't.

I had a clear goal, I knew where I was going. It took me more than double the time I had planned to get there. But I did.

Even if it takes me double or triple the time and effort to reach my goals, I will.

The second skill to succeed in Network Marketing is to be teachable. And some of the best teachers are our children.

They trusted me to get there and they knew we were going to. They worried and complained just a little. Even my 2 and a half year old found a way to have fun during the last couple of hours when we were stuck in the New York City rush hour.

I can do that too! I can be patient and trust that I have good leaders who are with me along the way to guide me. And I can have fun during the process.

I constantly learn to develop and identify new skills. I have an open mind to learn more techniques and tips from others.

The third skill to thrive in Network Marketing is the ability to take risks.
After driving through Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan, especially Chinatown, I felt like I could do anything. It empowered me.

It wasn't in my plans. I took the risk unwillingly, I didn't want to take it in the first place. But I put myself in the situation and I survived.

Sometimes I think too much. I doubt my abilities. I don't want to commit to something that I think I won't do great.

I don't have to do a great job to start with. I just have to start. That's how I wrote my first Special Report. And that's how I will have a new training series.

Don't try. Do. (We all love some Joda wisdom, right?)

So, there you go!, three skills that we need to me successful in Network Marketing. What other abilities do you think we need? Leave a comment about it and let's start a list.
