Building a strong customer base for your ASEA business takes a good strategy and diligent execution. Even then, reaching that next level of reward and recognition can take time. So what’s the secret? Try these tips for a growth mindset and see what happens!
It’s Not the Rank. It’s You.
If you’re wondering why you’re not at your next rank, ask yourself what’s between you and where you want to be. Embrace every phase of growth, and you will be able to move to the next level.
Be careful not to fall into the trap of thinking it’s your leaders, the products, your spouse, or the industry. It’s all about what you’re doing. Your business will grow as much as you do!
Every rank has a new level of responsibility tied to it. How will you rise to that rank if you haven’t paid the price? Think about what’s required to operate there, and practice doing those things.
It’s Not Luck. It’s Personal Development.
The next time you’re tempted to think someone is lucky, swap the word “luck” in your mind for “achievement.” Lucky people are just regular people who have a lot of personal development under their belts. They’re successful because they have already paid the price!
“But what about so-and-so, whose business exploded?” If you ask that person how many hours they spent scrapping things together and what they sacrificed to do it, you’ll be cured of comparing your journey to anyone else’s.
You will have to get out of a comfort zone or two as you personally develop. Push yourself to stay committed to what you said you were going to do, long after the mood you set your goals in leaves.
It’s Not a Hobby. It’s a Business.
If you want your business to grow—Surprise!—you have to talk about your business. Are you treating your ASEA business like a business? Are you thinking about it like a business? If not, ask yourself, “What would business-owner me do?”
Imagine you owned a boutique. You secure your retail space, set up shop, and get your inventory into the window and you stock the shelves and racks. But customers aren’t coming into your store. What do you do? Stand outside? Advertise? Invite friends and family to come? Take to social media?
Your ASEA business is no different! You represent a unique line of products. Why should you feel any different about telling somebody that you can be their supplier or help them set up their own membership?
As you switch into a growth mindset, you will evolve into a more confident creature, and eventually into an influential powerhouse.
