Do You Really Have Persistence?

April 18, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 165

We've all been through the rough times. The time when you call and call, yet no one seems interested. We follow up on leads, only to get the "I'll get back to you later" line. On top of all the "nos" you have your upline asking "what's going on?" and "why haven't you brought anybody in lately." Sometimes, it's enough to make you scream!

There are a lot of people in multilevel marketing that get out when things get difficult. In fact, many of them get out when things get even a little difficult. So what do you do instead of screaming? You dig deep and you find the one quality that will get you through. You find the one quality that keeps you from quitting. You find persistence.

Persistence is something that cannot be taught. Persistence is that inner voice that tells you to keep going no matter what. You can certainly encourage someone and try to help them through the rough spots, but if they don't have internal persistence; you may be fighting a losing battle.

Persistence does not necessarily mean not changing course. If something isn't working, they make the changes necessarily to get back on track. Persistence people will find a solution, even if the solution is not readily apparent. They will use whatever resources are necessary to find the answers.

Don't mistake stubbornness for persistence. If someone is too stubborn, they might push persistence to an unproductive level. While persistence is systematic and logical, stubbornness is usually related to emotion. Someone who is stubborn will continue on "just because." Someone who is persistent will continue because they can see a successful outcome.

Of all the traits that one can find in a successful multilevel marketer, (or maybe even any successful person), persistence is perhaps the most prevalent. Why? Because without persistence, you can't weather those storms that will inevitable happen. Without persistence, you just give up.

There is no time limit on persistence. It may take a week, a month, or even years to get to the goal you are trying to achieve. Continued persistence results in progress, even if the amount of progress is small. If you aren't seeing any progress, it may be that your persistence is focused in the wrong place (or you are just being stubborn).

Never underestimate the power of persistence and what difference persistence can make in your business. Cultivate persistence in your life and in your business to reach your goals. Onward and upward!

"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race" Calvin Coolidge

"The most essential factor is persistence - the determination never to allow your energy or enthusiasm to be dampened by the discouragement that must inevitably come." James Whitcomb Riley
