In Module 1 of the Super Networker Money Expert Ideas training course, we talked about SELLING and OFFERING anything – to anyone – at anytime. Now we are going to shift gears and discuss what is the engine that will power your selling habits, hustle and heart.
Believe In Yourself
Your Belief about the business you promote, advertise and market will literally and figuratively showcase your true intention and motivation behind why you sell it:
Let's go over some up close and direct attributes about your business beliefs.
- Whether you like it or not, your beliefs will affect your business. If they don't affect your business in a positive way, it's time to consider altering your beliefs.
- If you manage to successfully align your beliefs with the direction that your company is headed in, you will wind up making a lot of money and will be very successful.
- The first step to becoming successful is believing that all of your goals are accomplishable. Sometimes, this step can be harder than you realize.
- If you want to be an authority in this niche, you need to determine which beliefs are going to get you where you need to be. Then, you need to strive to adopt them.
- Trust me, if you do not believe in your company and product, you unfortunately will not get very far in this industry.
Align Those Beliefs With Your Work
- To become successful, you need to be headed in one direction and one direction only. Your entire team, business, and the foundation of your company must all be aligned together. Once this is accomplished, you will be truly headed for success.
- What you believe, what you value, and what actions you take all need to be in alignment as well. You cannot say one thing and then do another. You need to be wholeheartedly headed in one direction.
- When you become distracted, your mind will start to wander off and your actions will follow. Don't allow this to occur. Instead, remain focused, and let nothing make you leave your path.
Make Sure That You Believe in Others
- This may be hard to believe sometimes, but it's true: people are always more capable than you give them credit for. This is something very important that you must do your best to remember.
- Everything that you believe about every individual you interact with is important. Whether it is a lead, a customer, a coworker, or an employee, it all has importance.
- You cannot expect people to stick around you if you do not believe in them. No matter how hard it is, you must always strive to believe in their abilities and potential. It will wind up getting you very far in this world. Don't doubt what they can do and what potentially lies ahead of them.
Don't Let Yourself Sabotage Others or Yourself
- When you are talking to someone about their plans, and you start to doubt whether or not they are able to accomplish these plans, nip these thoughts in the bud. Not only will thinking these thoughts potentially sabotage your own selling abilities, they will also sabotage that person's potential if you wind up saying them out loud.
- Becoming distracted is just another way of sabotaging yourself as well. When your beliefs, thoughts, and goals are all twisted up and disoriented, you are just moving yourself farther and farther away from your end goal.
14 Steps to Help You Overcome All of Your Belief Limitations
1. Understand positive intention: Even if someone's behavior comes across with a negative intention, it initially had a positive intention if it was done unconsciously. When you are interacting with others, don't forget that.
2. Change how you view things: Does someone being disbelieving actually mean something more than that? Is there a deeper meaning?
3. Overall consequences: What will happen in the long run if you continue to believe the things that you believe? Are there any potential positive consequences to changing these beliefs? Are there any potential positive consequences to keeping these beliefs? Determine which is greater.
4. Narrow it down: Go into greater detail.
5. Widen your view: Look at things more from an abstract lens, rather than specific details.
6. Find a counter example: It is always good to acknowledge things that happen to disprove your beliefs. Look at things from another point of view for a change.
7. Use a metaphor to help you look at things: Believe it or not, metaphors can be very enlightening.
8. Apply these beliefs: Look at the results once you apply a belief to yourself, or when you apply a belief to itself. It can reveal a lot.
9. >Decide what outcome you want to have: Once you have done this, determine if your current belief is going to lead you to this outcome or not. If the answer is no, you may just have to change what you think.
10. Prioritize your criteria: Look at the belief once more, but use the most important criteria to analyze it.
11. Look at it from different frames: When you make your frame size bigger, your viewpoint suddenly changes. Try looking at it from different frame sizes and see if that makes a difference in the end.
12. Consider the metaframe: A metaframe is essentially how a belief fits into the grand scheme of the world. Although this may not seem very relatable for you personally, it is an important thing to look at.
13. Consider how you view the world: Note differences between what you view, and how the world actually is. Trust me, there are differences, even if you don't want to admit it or you cannot see them yet.
14. Take reality into consideration: Is your belief even real? Have you believed in something false this entire time? You need to think about these things.
Your Next Steps:
Use these 14 steps, and see if they wind up changing your beliefs at all. It's okay if they don't, but you should get into the habit of using these tactics now that you are in this industry.
