Key Universal Laws of Business For Network Marketers and Multilevel Marketers – The First Law

There are universal laws in all of created nature and humanity. Gravity, light, hunger, growth, and reproduction are good examples. Business is a necessary outgrowth of our human ingenuity, needs, production, and economic motivations. So, universal laws apply to business, as well.

The first law of network marketing and business that I want to cover is the universal working law of “Struggle.” Struggle is built into our world design. It can be seen from something like a chick struggling to crack and exit its egg, to a lady working out at a gym to push her body to be more healthy and strong, to a new person on the job getting trained, to a student in school trying to learn through listening, reading, doing bookwork, memorizing, and taking tests. Struggle is part of the fibre of our lives and it is very good for us. It helps us grow, get stronger, stay alive, learn, accomplish, compete, invent, become victorious, earn an income, maintain our health, and have relationships – oh what struggle and work they can take! Raising children with training and good discipline takes work. We can call it struggle, too.

The lack of the natural physical struggle that gravity gives causes our astronauts to create their own struggle by exercising in space. If you are out of the gravitational pull or lay still too long your muscles start to deteriorate (atrophy). The best musicians work hard and struggle with their musical craft. The best sales people practice and get experience. Great debaters practice and participate in debates. The best politicians… well, forget that! I guess they cause us to struggle. You are probably thinking that it is just work. That is it. The struggles of working at something.

Take a look at the concept of struggle within the business arena of network marketing. Based on what we already know about struggle, the first thing we must do is embrace the presupposition that struggle is good for us. It is productive, healthy, necessary, and right. Many of you have done that naturally in the process of growing up. Some of us have fought it and resented it. I am encouraging you, especially as network marketers, to embrace it as one of the best things in life. Yes, the struggle of building a network marketing business is a fantastic thing and will bring wonderful results.

That old saying, “the best things in life are free,” is true here. Struggle is free to you. It will come freely and frequently. Make it one of your best friends instead of a resented enemy. Approach your network marketing struggles like the athlete excitedly anticipating working out and competing, like a mother in her determination as she gives birth, like a child practicing a piano song and finally playing it, and like a retail employee helping a customer find what is needed.

To take action: (1) embrace struggle as a good thing that is helping you in your network marketing business; (2) apply yourself in your daily business struggles/work with enthusiasm and motivation, knowing that good things are developing in you and in your business; (3) read my articles defining weekly character qualities that can be helpful in the struggles of developing yourself; (4) engage the struggle in your daily marketing tasks: phone calling, advertising, writing, networking, training, selling, recruiting, emailing, being friendly, reading, going to meetings, being creative, and having a positive attitude.

Good Struggles for Now, Your Fellow Struggler

One of the key things in making sure you’ve got time for your marketing duties. You can’t just suddenly turn on a switch and say you’re network marketing. It’s like a job you have from nine to five; a regular schedule will help you get into a rhythm and makes it into a habit. Making your marketing an ingrained habit makes it easier for you to go into the marketing mindset and helps you become more comfortable with the idea of selling your stuff. Another thing to remember is that you don’t just pop in thirty minutes and call it a day. No, this business takes dedication and a large time investment. You can’t expect to sell anything or have a meaningful conversation in that little a time. Give your daily network marketing time minimum of two to three hours. This gives you enough time to do several things and expect to get them done.

2) Plan ahead

Now that you’ve got a daily marketing time, you’ve got to make the most out of it by making a schedule of what you’re going to use it for. Spreading your network by making contacts and generating leads is one of the best uses of your time so that should be your focus. You can also cultivate your current network by offering them more products or inquiring if there is any need for current products.

3) Use network marketing tools properly

Network marketing tools can help save a lot of time that would best be spent in developing your network. Actually, some of these tools can help build your network. A website where interested parties can go to see your pitch can attract customers and potential leads while you’re not even working on it E-mail letters and brochures also provide simple ways of automated lead generation. The time you spend answering inquiries is a better way to spend time than calling up people and arranging meetings, this is because the interest is already there and the potential for a sale or an additional line in your network is greater than with those that you just contact randomly. This helps you get a better use out of your network marketing time.

These three tips should start you off on how to use your network marketing times properly. There are a dozen ways to make the best use of your time, just use a little ingenuity and you’ll find them out yourself.
