It starts with us.
Until we can put the past behind us we can’t move forward. We need to get to a point where we can glance over our shoulder and really see how far we have come. This is why we do Personal Development and work on overcoming things of our past. It will be your dream and the WHY of your life that’s going to get you through the obstacles in this life. We as leaders get to help people see where they will be in the future and not where they are today. That is a gift we give to people. Once we begin to do this for others our business will really begin to grow.12 Classic Personal Development Books 150x150 90 Days to Excellence Glue that Holds this Business Together
1.) People like to feel special- You need to sincerely compliment them. You become a light in their lives with your compassion and your ability to take them to the next level in their lives whether it’s physically, emotionally, or spiritually. We are not talking about flattery but true compliments of what they have achieved.
2.) People want a better tomorrow- We need to show them hope. For the glue of the business we need to live that life. The hope of our downline comes from them seeing us succeeding, the life we are living, and that we are different. They need to see you come from nothing and arrive to success. They will have the hope and dream that if YOU can do it, so can they. Our goal is show them hope and show them the way.

5.) We are all emotional beings- People need encouragement. You will be more successful than you ever imagined when you become the greatest encourager of people. People are shrinking and wilting from lack of encouragement. Every opportunity you have is a chance for you to encourage them. When you walk in a room you high five people and pat them on the back and tell them how good they are doing. Encourage them.
6.) If you want success, then help them to win- In order for us to help them win we have to be succeeding ourselves. Once we are winning we can then teach them to win. Words are meaningless; we need to lead by example. Don’t call yourself a leader if you are not an example everyday of what it means to succeed everyday moving forward and growing your business.
