Are you a leader?
Well the truth is you determine whether you are a leader or whether you aren’t at any given moment of your life with your actions. You can’t just say, “yeah, I’m a leader”. So you’re probably asking, “what does it mean to be a network marketing leader?”
First, it means that you are able to rise above all obstacles and challenges in your life and business and be able to meet those challenges with your leadership mentality. There has to be this little voice in your head telling you, “there is no obstacle you cannot overcome, no challenge which you cannot endure, and no problem that will cause you to give up on your goals.”
The leadership mentality is simple. It’s basically having a vast amount of confidence and belief that if you truly focus your mind on something you will have success…and you know that you can help others do the same.
In order to be successful in network marketing you must absolutely be a leader. This is an industry where we cultivate leaders and winners. This is the reason personal development and self help books and courses thrive. Most people that buy these books and courses are salespeople and marketers so they can develop optimism and confidence.
If you are not a leader yourself you will have a difficult time to get thousands of people to follow you in your business. When you are a leader, thousands of people will see that and follow you at will. Leaders are the ones who make all the big money in network marketing. Leaders come in many different shapes, sizes and styles. Some outspoken, some are very quiet and not so loud.
The defining characteristic of a leader comes down to how much they help empower the people who are in their organization. How well they help people believe in themselves, build up their confidence and execute the tasks that make them more money. The purpose of the leader is Knowledge and Execution. The only true way to become a network marketing leader is to simply believe you are one.
