If It Feels Good, It Must Be Right


Copyright 2003 Priya Shah

Is it possible to motivate yourself to do something you don't enjoy doing?

Let me illustrate with my own example.

I'm not a natural networker. I'm no good at schmoozing and talking people into doing things I want them to do.

I've been told that I'm too upfront and honest for my own good. I know its true.

So how did I land up in network marketing?

Well, I always wanted to be a stay-at-home mom AND continue working.

Now network marketing OFFLINE is not exactly my cup of tea.

My "warm market" would probably be cold to my advances.

Attend meetings? But I thought the idea was to AVOID the awful commute!

If I called a friend over, it would be to chat about college days - NOT try to "introduce" them to "my new business."

I'm simply not comfortable with many of the methods that are used to "recruit" people.

But I'm still managing to do a decent job of building my organisation.

I also manage to keep myself motivated enough to WANT to spend every waking moment on my business.

How do I do it? I found something about the business I loved - the internet!

Now the internet is a whole new ball game as far as networking is involved.

On the internet you don't get rich by approaching people who aren't interested in what you have to offer. Uninvited advances are better known by the word "spam."

You don't lurk in chat rooms - the real-world equivalent of street corners - and accost them (no matter what your upline tells you).

You find out where they hang out and then make your presence felt in those places - like search engines, ezines, discussion lists.

If you can write reports, offer useful information, establish yourself as someone willing to share their expertise - your prospects will FIND YOU.

And if you can find something about the business you love - something about it that gives you a RUSH - you will never be short on motivation.

Its my love for researching and writing reports that gives me the motivation and the edge I need.

With you it could be any number of things - helping people, interacting with others, making friends, writing articles, designing a website - all the things the internet is good for.

And you'll soon find out that if it feels good for you, it'll most likely be good for your business.
