The 7 Sins Guaranteed to Sabotage Your Business

I just simply had to share these tips that I found in Mary Christensen’s book Be a Network Marketing Leader. It’s so simple, but so true and if you recognize yourself in any one of these points, I am almost certain that if you change your mindset on your problem area, you’ll see a positive change in your business.

So, do you see yourself in anyone of these sins?

  1. Undervaluing the opportunity: Don’t underestimate the potential of your business because it cost you so little to start it. Since I’ve started my business, I’ve gotten to see the leaders and top earners who invested such a small amount of money in the beginning, grow such thriving businesses, while helping others to do the same to.
  2. Overestimating the challenge: Start with the strengths you have and develop the strengths you need. In this business, you’re always learning and growing. No one has ever started off knowing everything.
  3. Overvaluing other people’s opinions: It’s a hard truth that the people you may care about won’t be your cheerleaders. Sometimes, that’s just the way it is.
  4. Underestimating yourself: You have a greater power inside you than any challenge facing you. Building your business will change you in so many ways, that you’ll surprise yourself.
  5. Over-relying on others: Many of us will not be fortunate to have an up-line or a supportive manager. But support networks exist, you just have to find them.
  6. Over-complicating your strategy: If you try to do everything, you risk accomplishing nothing. Take it one step at a time.
  7. Under-performing the hours: You have to work your business like a business if you want to see results.
