Everyone remembers that saying from Nike, “Just Do It.” In network marketing, I’ve adopted a new phrase. Just do stuff. That’s, in my opinion, one of the master secrets to success. You’ve got to get out there and you’ve got to do stuff. At a certain point in time there are only so many books you can read, there are only so many seminars you can go to, there’s only so much motivation you can have. At a certain point in time, you have to talk to people. If you don’t have people to talk to, you have to get out there and meet people. Because what’s your end game in network marketing?
As Jordan Adler so brilliantly described in his book Beach Money, he said all you really need to do to be successful in network marketing is get a couple of business builders and a handful of customers. Those are people. You need a couple of business builders and a handful of customers. You got to get out there and you’ve got to do something. They’re not, unless you’re really good at visualization, they’re not just going to ring your doorbell out of the blue and say, “I’m here to sign up.” You’ve got to get out there and you got to do stuff. That’s the key. Make it a habit to do something, to go out and just do something. Pick up the phone, talk to someone, go out meet someone, I don’t care where it is. If you like to bowl, go bowling. If you like to golf, go golfing. Just get out there and do stuff.
If you do stuff that you like, couple of bonuses. It’s going to be fun and you’re going to meet like minded people. That’s really all there is to it. Then just wait for the opportunity to say something intelligent to that person. If it doesn’t work, you didn’t fail, you’re just failing forward. You’re gaining on it. These are personal development principles, life principles, but that reality is our business model is simple. You go out there and you do stuff and if something doesn’t work you do something else. If that doesn’t work, you do something else. If that doesn’t work you just do whatever it takes. That’s the key to success in network marketing, is doing. Not watching YouTube videos. Except for this one. This one was the one, now you can go do stuff.
