How To Create Momentum In Your Network Marketing Business
It’s a term thrown around a lot in the network marketing industry and makes building your business a whole lot easier when you have it- Momentum!
Companies claim they’re going to hit it, while others are going through it as we speak. Those that have hit it tend to be stable and seem to last a lifetime.
But what about your own momentum? What are you doing to create a momentum in your own business?
When you’re able to create a personal momentum, time compresses. Things that may take months to accomplish in your business can happen in a matter of days.
In the training below, I’m showing you how to create and build your own momentum in your business- or as we’re going to call it M.O.E.
HOW TO BUILD M.O.E.
M- Motivate Yourself
“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well neither does bathing. That’s why we recommend it daily.” – Zig Ziglar
Ways to keep yourself motivated-
1- Don’t believe those negative voices in your head telling you it can’t be done.
- If you believe you can’t do something, you can’t.
- While the opposite applies… if you believe you can do something, YOU CAN!
2- Live in alignment with your values and priorities and have a reward system for yourself.
- In order to be truly happy with any success you’re able to create, you need to make sure it’s in line with your values. (You are being moral and ethical while creating your success, right?)
- Just as important as values are your priorities. If your family is your number one priority and you’re giving them up in chase of money, chances are when you finally catch that money, you won’t be happy because you would have missed out on all that time with your family.
- Don’t be afraid to celebrate your wins! Every step you take toward accomplishing your goals is a win. If you fail to celebrate, you will never be good enough for yourself. Your sights of success will always continue to increase and you won’t find that happiness and peace you’re striving for.
3- Set focuses and intentions in at least 3 areas of your life. (Business, health, personal development, faith, family, relationships, hobbies, finances, etc.)
- You can’t be the best at everything. It’s impossible to evenly distribute yourself in more than a few areas at once.
- Whit and I focus on our family, faith, and business. Everything else is put on the side burner until our business is where we want it to be.
- It’s easier to stay motivated when you constantly have success after success happening in your business. For Whit and I, building our business online has opened the doors to a massive momentum happening in our business.

- WRITE DOWN YOUR VISION!
It’s been proven if you actually write down what you want and what you’re willing to go through to get it, your chances of success increase. Also, you can’t have what you can’t picture. So take a piece of paper, and start writing what you want your life to look like a year, 5, and even 10 years down the road. Then, set goals to help you accomplish that life you’ve created.
O- Organize Yourself
1- Keep everything in one place.
- Do you have a paper calendar?
- Do you have a million different notebooks full of notes scattered through out your house? Or do you keep everything in one place that is easy to access?
2- Mind Map
- Use your mind map to break your momentum down into certain goals and outcomes.
- Then break down those goals into tasks.
- By doing this, you’ll know what you need to do and what steps you still need to take in order to build your momentum.
3- Focus your time on the tasks that will give you the most impact.
- When you don’t know where to start, JUST START!
- Do the big things now and the small stuff later.
4- Build in Reviews
- Review your progress and what you were able to accomplish each day, week, and month.
- We like to build in 90 day sprints (usually from event to event)
- We sit down, take a look at what we wanted to accomplish, what we were able to accomplish, and set goals to help us improve for the next day, week, or month.
E- Energize Yourself
Tips to keeping yourself energized –
A no brainer, right? But did you know lack of sleep impairs:
- Problem solving
- Efficient learning
- Consolidation of memories
The average adult needs between 7 and 8 hours of sleep each night to fill the quota needed in their sleep bank. You’ll be much more productive through out each day and get more done if you’re fully rested.
(Mom’s with babies… I know you’re laughing at me right now at the thought of getting even half that much sleep. I’m right there with you! But do your best to make sure you take advantage of every chance you get to maybe nap when the baby is napping and older kids are at school…)
Regular physical activity can not only improve your muscle strength and boost your endurance, but it can also boost your brain. Exercise and physical activity deliver oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and help your cardiovascular system work more efficiently. So when your heart and lungs work more efficiently, you have more energy to go about your daily chores.
Personally, I know that I’m a lot more efficient in getting my tasks done through out the day when I am diligent in working out.
Next time you’re feeling sleepy, try drinking a couple glasses of water. Feeling tired is one of the first signs of dehydration and filling back up on H2O could zap the sleepiness away.
4- Take breaks
Do you realize the effect taking a 30 second break can have on your energy. Stepping away from the computer or task at hand for even 30 seconds to breathe in deep and stretch can do wonders for your energy and help you to better focus.
So if you find yourself starting to zonk while working, stand up, stretch your body, grab a glass of water, and see how much more productive you can be…
By putting M.O.E. into action, your personal momentum will start to build. Just make sure you stay consistent. Lack of consistency is the fastest way to destroy any momentum you may have built or are trying to build in your business.
