Network Marketing Success: Tell The Truth
Do you want to be a success in your network marketing business? It is essential for you to be a person of high integrity and to tell the truth always.
I’ve been reading a book by Jack Canfield. It is “The Success Principles, How to go from where you are to where you want to be.” It is a pretty big book, almost 500 pages. I want to quote from one of the chapters. The chapter’s title is “Tell the Truth Faster”, and the question I have is, “Do you tell the truth”
“When in doubt, tell the truth. The truth will set you free. The truth also frees up our energy. Most of us are worried about hurting other people’s feelings, so we don’t share our true feelings, and we hurt our self instead.”
When you’re talking to somebody about your business, do you tell the truth? What if a prospect asks you, “How much do you make?” Do you hedge the answer a little bit and just make it sound a little bit better than it is? Don’t do that! Tell the truth.
If you’re not making any money, tell them, “I’m not making any money. I just started, but I’ll show you where I’m going. I’ll show you some people who are making a ton of money, and they started right where I am. And I’m doing what they did, so I’m going to get what they got. Would you like to come with me? Yes or no. I’m building a team.”
You exude that confidence. You tell the truth. If you know where you are going, the right people will follow you. It’s that simple. So again, the question I have is, do you tell the truth when prospects ask you questions? When they say, “How big is your team?”, and your team is zero. Do you tell them, “My team is zero, but this is where I’m going. This is how I’m going to get there. I’d love to take you with me. Let me show you how. It’s your choice.”
So often in life and business we are afraid the truth will not serve us so we want to exaggerate. We want to hedge our bets with “little white lies”. We see no harm in that, but there is harm. We are training our brain to not trust us. Our brain knows the truth and it hears the little white lie. We are training the people around is to not trust us. Sooner or later, the truth will catch up. SO the best advice is, when in doubt, tell the truth always/
It’s your choice to tell the truth. And if you do (tell the truth) then you won’t have to worry about, after you’ve talked to 10 different people, what you told each one of them and try to remember what you said. They are going to remember and sooner or later, your reputation will be compromised or worse, destroyed.
