Commitment is really a word we hear a lot, in your own and business lives.But exactly what does it mean? Can we really say we're devoted to the house based business? I was doing a bit of research and chose to revisit the idea of commitment. And its importance to the business plans inspired me to write a number of posts. I find it pays to be reminded of such things as this, so we can evaluate where we've strayed and obtain back in line.
WHAT IS COMMITMENT?
This is actually the act of engagement, involvement and / or obligation to whom, or what, you say you're committed to. You pledge yourself to a certain purpose, in order to lines of conduct, to attain a desired result. Which obligation restricts your freedom of action to a certain degree, to ensure the required outcome. You get involved to do this and on with it, even when the "mood" or emotion which was present when you made the declaration has transpired. Some have defined it as "Persistence With Purpose". So to be committed running a business is to follow through with it to success, regardless of what else is going on.
Exactly what does COMM ITTMENT REQUIRE?
There's two VITAL stuff that are required inside a commitment.
1) Belief Within the Cause.
Personally I don't observe how you can commit to something you don't have confidence in. The personal inner battle should be intense. Should you don't believe in Your selected work from home business opportunity, how can you sell it off effectively? How will you expect your prospects to buy into it, and put their hopes of a much better future on their behalf and their families inside it, should you yourself don't feel that way? The old saying goes, "If you don't stand for something, you'll be seduced by anything". And in this industry, there are plenty OF OPPORTUNITIES to be seduced by. And if your belief in your home based business of preference is not strong, there are many promotions out there willing to get you from it. So your belief ultimately result that you are working towards, as well as in the REASON you picked that opportunity to begin with, is necessary, and should be stronger than the pulls that threaten to tug you from it. It should be well grounded. You can't base this on someone else's belief, or on hype. No one can force you to truly believe in something you don't. That is why my team and I emphasize the significance of due diligence. Because over the course of time, the leadership may change, the company plan may change, You might change too. If your belief is strong, you are more likely to stay committed and weather the changes, and when you accomplish that, your chances of success increase multiple fold.
2) Discipline Of Action.
Without discipline, there might be no resolve for speak of. When we first entered the house based business opportunity, there was excitement, there is enthusiasm, and that we felt like our prayers for long term residual income have been answered. Just a few months into the opportunity, once the hurdles appear, what do we all do? How do we feel? Shall we be still as committed to the house based business as we were before? Do we still carry out those necessary actions once we used to, to push toward our success? Do we still call our downline, write our blogs, post our ads, making the weekly team calls? I love to be truthful during my writing and reveal that occasionally I must "have a word" with myself to ensure I adhere to these actions. Because the road to success is difficult. You'll go through phases in which the answers are not what you expect, the prospects don't appear to want your business interest, and the changes in the business don't seem to work for you. And there are other things in everyday life like illnesses or family obligations that can take our focus away from building the house based business. But I see that discipline itself requires that through everything, the focus around the objective remains the same, and you do All you are able, when you are able, to get there, whether you want to or otherwise.
So without a strong belief in your house based business, and also the discipline necessary to work on it through the pros and cons times, you CANNOT be committed to it. So if you're not, you can't realise MLM success through it. I am privileged to be using a team of committed entrepreneurs and networkers, who've a strong belief within the group concept we've and are disciplined enough to work through it for the advantage of they. If you're struggling with your home based business opportunity, have finished failing in this industry, or are feeling discouraged, I invite you to definitely take a look at what we're doing, and will be happy to work with you!
