How to Outwit The Six Ghosts of Fear


How many times have you decided to not make a call because of fear holding you back? How about going up and starting a conversation with a person while out at the restaurant or even gym? When most people get asked this question, they admit that it was in some form of fear. But fear of what exactly? That depends on you. But let's look at an example.


How many times have you heard people say no to your network marketing business because they don't want to be a salesperson? In my opinion, and what I have experienced is that most people say this for a certain reason. Most people have been to a place where they were pressured into buying a new car, boat, etc, and it made them feel uneasy. So they fear that they would become one in network marketing. And we all know, like Michael says, network marketing is not a sales business. It is a people's business. Therefore, we can relief someone's fear of becoming a salesperson, and allow them a chance to live their dream by being themselves. How do we do that though? By one skill Michael always mentions to us, and that's by listening to them.


I would also like to tell you about one of the greatest hitters in baseball, David Ortiz. He is also known as one of the all time clutch hitters in baseball history. Why? Do you think fear allows him to be a clutch hitter? No way. He keeps it simple when others ask him how he is so calm up at the plate. He simply tells them that he focuses on seeing the ball and hitting it. As a baseball player growing up, I thought to myself that it couldn't be that easy. But it was that easy. See, I thought it was more complicated than that because I was thinking about the fear of not getting the winning base hit.


And this applies to our network marketing business. Fear creeps in us all when we over complicate things and when we don't have a clear vision on where we are going. When we start with the clear vision, the”how” will take care of itself. So what is fear holding you back from?
