Persistence can help you achieve great success in your business. Persistence may be the one underlying character trait in all successful entrepreneurs, business owners, self-employed, freelancers, and more. They all must have persistence. Without it, they might just give up when things do not go as they are planned or when there is a loss instead of a profit.
What is Persistence?
According to Dictionary.com, persistence is the act or fact of persisting, the quality of being persistent, continued existence or occurrence, and/or the continuance of an effect after its cause is removed.
This definition can easily be applied to any person, whether they have great persistence or just a little. The strange thing is that it seems that everyone has at least a little bit of persistence in them, and in training it can become greater. Just look at children and the way they behave. Children are extremely persistent in that they will try the same thing over and over again until they either accomplish their task or are suppressed by a parent.
For example, when a child is learning how to walk he or she will consistently try to stand every day. Eventually he or she will then take a few steps and fall. That fall never seems to phase them; they just keep on taking those steps until they can walk, then run, and finally jump. That is persistence in its purest form. The child just keeps getting up after falling and taking more steps until the task of walking is finally accomplished. Their persistence continues with learning how to run, jump, and then communicate, read, write, and so on.
This is just one example of persistence, and one that shows we all have persistence within us. Even if you feel that you are not persistent, you are, and you can become more persistent by creating worthwhile accomplishments and gaining confidence in yourself, your work and your life overall.
How persistence can lead to your MLM success?
Persistence is the one thing you need (not want) to have in order to become successful in your MLM business. It takes a lot of hard work, effort, and some failures to create a successful MLM business. The key is in continuing your efforts and learning from your mistakes. It can be difficult to analyze your failures, but it can mean the difference between success and not progressing as fast as you could. When you know what is working great and what is not, you can change it so you are more productive in your MLM business and earn more profits.
Keys steps to take to Become More Persistent
As stated before, you can become more persistent if you do not believe that you are. Also, your persistence (if you are a highly persistent person) might fade over time with your MLM business endeavors. This requires consistent check-ins and review of your progress to maintaining high persistency!
1. Create Goals: Your goals must always be realistic. When you accomplish even the smallest of goals write them down and cross them off of your list when complete. This will help feed your self-confidence and business confidence and show you that you can accomplish what you set out to, in turn increasing your persistence.
2. Maintain Your Goals: Keep your goals up to date, and don't be afraid to revise them when necessary. Goal planning can sometimes take time to get used to and learn how to do effectively. If you need to revise a goal, do so with no guilt. These are your goals for your business.
3. Planning: Plan for successes as well as failures. Everyone falls before they learn to walk, and even then we fall from time to time. The important thing is to focus on what your successes are and why they are successful and keep doing that, as well as increasing this part of your work. The hard but necessary part is to examine your failures and find out why they didn't work. This will help you stay focused on what is successful instead of wasting your time on work that doesn't turn any profits or accomplishments.
Persistence is the one key nearly every successful entrepreneur holds. Without it, there would be no success because everyone would simply give up. You can become more persistent with the right effort, work, determination, and analysis, even if you are not known for being persistent.
