So you have started your Network Marketing Business and you don’t know how to create a sense of urgency in yourself or your team. It is possible that your sponsor or upline is talking about “getting and sense of urgency” but they have not told you how to do it. It can be easier said than done, but here are few tips to help you achieve it for yourself and your team members.
Urgency Tip # 1- Set Goals
This is critical to generating urgency. We are talking about you setting goals for yourself and in some cases your team. When you have a goal that is SMART it helps you to be focused on urgently doing the things that need to be done to achieve it and nothing else.
SMART Goals are different than just saying I am going to enroll two people in my business this month.
SMART is an acronym for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant and Time Based
The Time Based part is the part that drives urgency, but be careful here. You need to understand if you are giving yourself a realistic time-frame to hit the goal. For example, if your goal is to earn $10,000 this month in your business and you only have two days per month you can work on it, then is it very likely that it is achievable? It may or may not be. You want to have bit of a reach to hit your goal but it needs to be somewhat tied to the amount of effort you can invest. Work with your business leaders to help you set this or message me and I will help you out.
Urgency Tip #2-Break It Down
Have you ever heard the phrase “how do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time” this is exactly what you need to do to create urgency. Break the goal or objective down into small parts that you can do very quickly. This creates momentum in you and in your team.
Urgency tip #3-Focus
This means staying focused on doing only the work that leads to the goal you have set. Anything else is a distraction and diverts your resources away from fast growth and urgency. Keep in mind that some of your time may need to be spent teaching and helping your team how to do these things. That done, will lead to effective duplication and increase the velocity and urgency the business is being built by the whole team.
Remember that creating this sense of urgency does not mean that your are doing nothing but driving your team into a frenzy of activity, where everyone is bouncing off the walls. When you are talking about your business or products with prospects who need more time to make a decisions than you are wanting to give. Just remember that everyone moves at their own pace. Don’t blow them out of the business forever because you want to succeed faster than they want to join.
This is short term thinking and will not work! You will need people at all different levels of learning and thinking and learning about your business opportunity. Some will jump in right away, others will take 2 or 3 years. You want them all so don’t be rude because you are in a hurry. That is not the same as being urgent. Just continue to move forward and find people who want to go as fast as you do, but keep all of them in play until they tell you ” no I don’t want to join you”.
