In the competitive and challenging world of network marketing, it is common for distributors to feel overwhelmed. Many network marketers often wonder why they chose this career and whether it will ever work. This is perfectly normal, but how you handle such days is going to determine whether or not you will become successful. Darin Kidd, a leading network marketing trainer, recently shared a few tips on staying motivated, even when you feel like quitting.

06:09 A Question For You
Have the Right Attitude
There are times when the struggle to keep going is real. It is a must that you hang in there and never give up when it comes to dealing with those off days of Network Marketing. While this is a very innocent little choice, the instant you give up could change the whole course of your life. It is a major defining moment and how you handle it can have a huge impact.
A positive attitude is one of the main keys for success in network marketing. You must decide to believe that you can achieve success. Even though failures are a part of life, you should consider them part of the journey to success. Challenges are supposed to make you better and stronger. The right attitude is all about seeing any obstacles as an opportunity to conquer them and win or as a chance to learn a new skill and get better. We want to have the attitude that we never fail. We either win or we learn. Every day is a battle to block the negative and fuel the positive to help maintain a positive attitude. Pay attention to what you read, listen to, watch, and the people around you. Think about what you are thinking about at all times. Focus on what you CAN do and NOT what you CAN’T do. Look for the positive in every situation. All of these things affect our attitude and belief system.

Take Action Now
Many network marketers constantly doubt themselves and their ability to produce good results. They often find that they are making excuses and offer some justifications as to why they cannot give their best. One of the common excuses is that they do not have enough knowledge to successfully run their business. They don’t feel ready. According to Darin, “One hour in the field is worth 20 hours in the classroom.”
While learning is important, it should be done in a constant cycle where you are always taking action. Start doing the activity, learn and improve your knowledge and then gradually you will get better and better. Be persistent and consistent in everything you do while keeping a positive attitude.
That is why Darin recommends that you ACT the way you WANT to feel, rather than act the way you actually feel. Psychologists have determined it’s easier to ACT your way into feeling than feel your way into acting. Emerson told us to, “DO the thing,” and then you will have the power. He didn’t recommend WAITING for the power and then go do the thing. Most days we will not “feel” like being positive or doing the activity. This is a comfort zone that takes us back to where we’ve always been, which is never comfortable. It’s just we are used to being there. We have to be a little uncomfortable for a period of time in order to be very comfortable later. We have to learn to manage our emotions and keep pushing forward no matter how we feel.
Ultimately, if you are committed to the journey, you will see the challenges you are facing in your network marketing business as an untapped goldmine that will take you closer to the positive results you want to achieve. Block out all negative feelings and focus on fueling a positive attitude.

If you’ve been in network marketing for at least a day, you’ve probably felt frustrated, overwhelmed, or even felt like quitting. I know I’ve experienced all those emotions many times. However, on this video, I’m going to give you three of my biggest tips on how to stay strong enough long enough and continue to stay motivated while building your network marketing business. Coming up.
Hey everybody. Darin Kidd. Thanks for stopping by my channel. On this channel, we give you weekly content to help you succeed now in your network marketing business. And, now that I’ve been in the industry for a while, I’ve experienced the ups and the downs, the emotional roller coaster, the wanting to quit 100 times a day. I’ve learned some things that have really helped me continue to push through the fire to get to the other side. And, let’s face it. You know, what we do in network marketing, it’s very simple. However, that can also be the downside because how do we get in network marketing? You go, “I’m in.” And, you pay a small fee. How do you get out of network marketing? You go, “I’m out.”
What’s easy to do is easy not to do. And, we also lead a voluntary army. What does that mean? It means that most people will not do it, and that’s just the way it works. So, the number one thing that you want to consider as you’re going through this journey, you’re building your network marketing business, is why are you in the business? Maybe a better way to put that is what’s most important to you and your life right now. Now, you want to be very specific. You want to take some time to really think about this because it’s not the money. You have to put an emotional attachment to the money if you want to stay strong enough long enough to hit your goals and your dreams.
So, is it your family? Okay. And, again, I know that I’ve been through when I was taking money out of my little girl’s piggy bank and we were going to use that someday for Disney World. And, I was on my hands and knees and my wife and I were going through just to get change in order to get something to eat. She runs in, sees mommy and daddy taking her money for Disney World, and runs out of the room crying. So, every time I felt like quitting, which was every single day, that is what helped me stay strong enough long enough. I remember putting on my wall, I will until. You know, I remember saying… Somebody saying, “Darin, success is buried right underneath frustration.” And, I’m like, “Well, I have to be close because I can’t get any more frustrated.”
So, have a crystal clear picture of why you’re doing the business. Take some time. Even do it with your family. It’s great if you can get your family involved. Do a dream board. A billionaire told me to do that. I remember first going, man, are we in kindergarten? Why would I do a dream board? You know, copying, cutting and pasting, you know, pictures? Because you have to see it here before you ever see… See it in reality. What thou seeist, thou beist. And, when you… When… And, we magnetize the condition that we seek, and if you don’t know where you’re going, any road will get you there, so spend some time and really think about why you’re doing the business, because when you go through those valleys and you’re going on that emotional journey, that’s what’s going to help you push through until you get to the other side.
Number two. Treat it like you have a job. I’ve went through many scenarios with people. One was I go, “Look. What if I paid you $100,000 a year? And, here’s what I want you to do. I want you to go put 10 pennies in one pocket and you need to leave in the morning. Let’s say by 9:00 a.m. And, I want you to go out and I want you to talk to 10 people and every time you talk to someone and go, look, what’s the best number to reach you? And you get their contact information and you share the information on my business with that person, you can move the penny from one pocket to the next pocket and by the time you have 10 pennies moved over to the other pocket, you can take off for the rest of the day.” Okay.
All you did was share the information about my company with people, collected their follow-up information, and if you finish by noon, you’re done by noon. You can go have the rest of the day off. And, you did that five days a week. Would you do that if I paid you $100,000 a year? And, people go, “Yes. I would do that. Sign me up now.” And, I’m going, if you will do that for me, why wouldn’t you do that for you? Because if you did that for me, I would turn that business into a massive business just from the prospects that you got me. So, what if you treat this like you have a job? What would you pay yourself for what you’ve done over the last 30, 60, 90 days? You are the CEO of You, Inc. Y-O-U. If it’s to be, it’s up to me. So, you want to have that accountability.
It’s amazing. I have people in my business, they only have 10 hours a week to work their business. And then, I have full time people. They say they’re full time. What that means most of the time, it’s code for I quit my job too soon or I can’t find a job so I say I’m full time. It doesn’t mean they’re doing full time activity. So, if they have 10 hours a week and I’m talking to this full time per… Or, this part time person, they have 600 minutes to go out there and build their business and they get more done in those 10 hours than the full time people because they treat it like they have a job. So, that’s number two.
Number three. Get a workout partner. The definition of apathy is a natural human instinct common to us all to seek a comfort zone where nothing ever changes. So, we never get to where we should be in any aspect of our life or any area of our life without accountability, and accountability as a choice. Okay? It’s… We have to choose accountability. For example, when I go to the gym, I know how to work out. I’ve been doing it for a long time. However, I’m never going to push myself as hard as my trainer is going to push me when I go to the gym. So, find someone where you can push each other to the bank.
Doesn’t have to be in your up line. Doesn’t have to be in your down line. It could be someone that you’ve just met and you kind of mesh with. You’re about the same rank. You’re both, you know, motivated to go to the next level. But find an accountability partner because a lot of times when you’re down, they’re up and when they’re down, you’re up. And so, it just works so much better because you could help each other go through the challenging times and having an accountability partner will make a big difference in staying motivated while building your network marketing business.
Question of the day. The first tip was why are you doing the business. What’s most important to you in your life right now? I would love to know that if you’re willing to share that. Please put in the comments below why you’re doing the business. I want to go through and read every single one of them because it helps me. It actually motivates me, knowing that I can help you achieve your goals and your dreams.
