If you want to achieve success in your Young Living business, you need consistent income producing activity. The key to success is consistency. If you want to be creating some exciting success in your team, you need to be taking action in your business on a consistent basis.
Taking small actions consistently over time can add up to some big results. If taking action is hard for you, if you have a hard time motivating yourself to call people or get out to network, there is a simple process that will make this so much easier for you. If you practice this little skill for even a couple of weeks, you will notice that taking action in your business feels as easy as putting on your shoes.
Just like building a muscle in your body, you start small. You want to do many repetitions, and then gradually add more weight.
“Building an Activity Muscle”
Gradually add weight
This activity will be helpful for those times that you feel like you are starting over after a period of time where you have found your activity dropping off. Things happen – Illness, a son or daughter getting married, depression, etc. You will have times when you need a reboot. I’m with you there. For me, postcard size flyers, leave behinds and drop cards directing people to my web site.
First step of building an activity muscle is to make a list of actions to grow your team.
- EVERY DAY wear an oil that will cause someone to comment on how good you smell (opening to say: “I’m wearing natural Essential Oils because I prefer a toxin free perfume. This one is called Stress Away. It smells great and who doesn’t want a little Stress Away these days? Have you ever used Essential Oils? …” Use Abundance, Stress Away or other oil choice. Mention what oil and why you like it. Be compliant. ) Have your 30 second commercial prepared (a brief word or two about how to get more information) and something printed with your referral link ready.
- Pass out 3 or more flyers a day (invites to oil class, Toxin Free Living audio or other online presentation)
- Connecting with 3 new people a day online or offline
- More ideas below.
Once you have a list of actions, choose a couple things from that list and create a very simple action plan.
When you create your plan, add ONLY the actions you feel confident that you will actually complete.
Choose the easiest ones that you know you will follow through with and start with these. If connecting with 3 new people a day feels too hard, simplify it to ONE a day. You can add more as your activity muscle gets stronger. If daily feels too difficult, try a weekly goal. For example: If 3 flyers a day seems too stressful, set a goal for 5 a week or whatever feels right for you. Make sure you have plenty of flyers with you so you don’t miss opportunities.
You can always do more but for this first stem of the activity muscle process you want to UNDER PROMISE so it is easy for you to succeed.
You want to be able to say to yourself, “I can do that!” and then easily follow through. Your mindset is very important. Having the “I can do that!” belief will help you make progress much faster. Use Believe oil blend.
Second step is to reward yourself every time you follow through and complete those actions. This is very important because any behavior that gets rewarded becomes automatic. You can come up with any kind of reward you like but it should be something simple that brings a sense of joy or makes you feel good. These days I reward myself by painting, drawing or playing a game. Reward yourself with something fun. 😉
Don’t sweat the results. If you make several calls and no one seems interested in meeting with you or you host an event and no one buys anything, don’t sweat that. It’s ok. At this point you just want to be taking action and rewarding yourself when you follow through.
Some of those people who said no in the beginning will eventually see your success and the fun you are having and will want to join you. Stick with it and watch and see how that happens.
Keep working at building your activity muscle. After a couple weeks, you will get stronger, your confidence will grow and you will be able to do more. You may even find yourself taking on new things you thought you would never be able to do.
