Are You Emotionally Attached to the Outcome?

To have a successful business, we have to stop letting our emotions run our businesses. Are you attached to the outcome of each prospect? Do you stress over whether they say yes or no?

If you are in a business and have been for any amount of time, I am sure you have dealt with what I am talking about today. Being attached to the outcome of whether your prospect says yes or no. Fear of rejection in business is one of the toughest things to get over, but you have to if you want to succeed.

We all deal with people saying no. That’s just how it is. Not everyone wants what you have. And you will get plenty of no’s. My question to you is will you let that stop you, will you let make you quit?

Or…Will you rise up and develop into the business owner you need to be to make it happen?

Let me tell you about me a few years ago compared to me today. When I first started in my own business, I was excited and assumed everyone else would be too. I assumed people would love what I had to offer and jump on the chance to get it because it was wonderful right?

Isn’t that how you feel about your product or service for those of you in your own business? You don’t know how anyone could tell you no.  But they do. And then you get discouraged. And your feelings get hurt right?

And you think about quitting. And then when that doesn’t work you jump to another thing, when in reality the issue is your mindset. It was my mindset. And it was my lack of skills, and it was my fear of rejection.

Fast forward to today. I am no longer emotionally attached to the outcome. I realize that what I do is not for everyone and people are going to say no, a lot. But if you can get past that, and keep going, doing the activity and focusing on the activity and not the result, then things start to change.

When you are emotionally attached to the outcome, you will get upset every time someone tells you no and you will feel like a failure.

So here is what you have to do.

You have to stay consistent.

You have to do the income producing activities daily without being attached to the result.

You have to train your mind to focus on the positive, which means listening to or reading personal development daily.

And  you have to keep going and never give up.

When you take the emotions out of prospecting, it gets much easier. The choice is yours. If you want to break past the barriers that are holding you back, stop letting your feelings run your business.

If you have not read “Go for No”, then that’s a great place to start. Learning that nos are good because they get you to the yeses. So go out there today and shoot for a bunch of nos and don’t let yourself be emotionally attached to that outcome. That’s when the yeses will start coming.

Keep going and take your feelings out of it and see what happens.

To your success,

Business Mistakes We All Make and How to Stop

Isn’t it funny how we get off track just a little and it’s so hard to get back on track? The same goes with a lot of things doesn’t it? Like our health, eating right and exercising. We can be so motivated and working hard toward our goals and then life happens. And we have the hardest time getting back on track. It also happens in our businesses and other things we do.

The only way to keep that from happening is through commitment and consistency. But how do you push through a slump in your business? You know what I mean? A slump, where you just don’t want to do the work, you maybe have lost motivation, you are not being as consistent as you should be, you may be procrastinating, and you are letting distractions pull you in every direction. A slump.

I wanted to give you 3 easy things to really keep you on track or get you back on track in your business. These are things that have helped me when I have gotten off track, like these last few weeks.

  1. Daily to-do list. You need to write down your business priorities in order of importance. Putting it on paper is important. Write out your daily, weekly and monthly goals along with what you need to do each day to hit them. Whether that is to prospect 10 people a day on Facebook, or call 10 people a day, or send out daily email to your list, whatever income producing activities you need to do for your business, write them down in order of importance. This does not include scrolling Facebook or organizing your desk. Income producing activities.
  2. Set business hours. You have a home business. It should be treated the same way a traditional business is. Every professional business has business hours right? So set hours for your business and then whatever you wrote down on your priority list from number 1, do those things during those times.
  3. Personal Development. This has changed my thinking in so many ways. We are surrounded by so much negativity in life. We have to put things in our minds that change how we think and how we live. If we want to be successful and live a positive, happy life, we need to put positive in our minds. We have all heard garbage in, garbage out. What we put into our minds comes back out into our lives. So make sure you are filling your minds with positive things every day. Read or listen to some type of personal development daily.

There are many ways to manage your time effectively and to get your motivation back if you’ve lost it. But these are my go-to’s that help me. So, write down your to-do list, set your hours and listen or read personal development daily.

This will help your home business grow and you will see greater success using these steps.

To your success,
