Once, a man was passing an elephant when he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that this huge creature was being held by only a small rope tied to it’s front leg. No chains, no cage. It was obvious that the elephant could, at anytime, break away from that bond, but for some reason, it did not.

The man saw a trainer nearby, and asked why the animal, just stood there and made no attempt to get away. “Well,” the trainer said, “when they are very young and much smaller, we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.”

The man was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds, but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were.

Like the elephants, how many of us go through life, hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before?

Realize your potential, come out of your old beliefs and the fear of failures. Just because you couldn’t do something at one time, or something didn’t work earlier, doesn’t mean you won’t be able to do it now.

I saw this one on the web today, it makes the point quite clear.

 

Working a business does require you to get out of your comfort zone, and as you can see it is the things outside the comfort zone that you want to achieve.

Now get out of that comfort zone, and obtain your dreams.

Who do you know ??? We (your upline support team) would like to know !!! Whether you’re new in the business or you’ve been in for a while, your upline support team would like to help kick-start your new vehicle on the road to financial success. If you take action, you’ll find the network marketing business to be very powerful when you work as a cohesive team…you’re in business for yourself, but not by yourself.

Putting together your names (prospect) list is the first, but most important step. These names that you list below should be: people that you know to some degree, and/or; they have a need for a change, and/or; their timing is right or they’re searching for an income opportunity, and/or; they know a lot of people, and/or; they are leaders in their sphere of influence, and/or; they have talents that are conducive to business. Don’t be afraid to include your “CHICKEN LIST”. This list would be people that you may be apprehensive about talking to about the business for whatever reason. Your upline support team will help you with this list.

Your immediate plan of action is to prepare a names list of 60 candidates or more for you business. You will notice that there are stars next to the top 10 names. These should be your best candidates (people you want the most). Your upline support team will commit to helping you with the starred top 10 names so that they can both teach you important recruiting techniques as well as help you get these people into your organization. It is important that you prepare the list promptly so that your upline can begin working with you. Make it your goal to complete this list within 3 to 7 days after beginning your business. After your list is completed, follow up with your sponsor and give him/her a copy of this list. Your sponsor will review this list with you and will keep a copy of this list for his/her records as well as a carbon copy of your list to key upline leaders for their records.

At this point, it’s time to start calling your candidates. Remember…you’re a professional “sorter” in this business, not a “convincer”… “sorting” through your candidates whose timing is right. You will want to make 3 way calls with your upline with the top 10 list, introduce them to their business (2 minute commercial), peak their interest (don’t satisfy it), and book appointments. The more calls you make and the faster you call all of them…the quicker your start. With the help of your upline, determine how each candidate will be approached (i.e. 3 way call, opinion/evaluation approach, direct approach, indirect approach, product approach, video approach, referral approach, etc.) and what setting will the booked appointment take place (one-on-one, two-on-one, home presentation, hotel meeting, etc.). IT’S TIME TO GET STARTED !!!

KEY POINTERS:

  1. If a candidate shows a resistance to taking a look at the business, always use the video approach. This dramatically increases your chances of getting a skeptical candidate to at least get a strong look at the business. After they watch the video(s), pick the video(s) back up, answer their questions, and book a follow up meeting to discuss the business in more detail.
  2. Make sure that you have as many names and phone numbers of your upline as possible. They are your support system…communicate with them consistently…they are a great source of information. For the first month, you should communicate with your sponsor at least 2 to 3 times per week. You should also communicate with upline Executive Coordinator at least once a week.
  3. Though your upline, quickly become aware of all meetings being done by your upline in your area (home presentations and hotel meetings). These will be a very instrumental tool to building your business. Even if you may not have prospects to bring to a meeting(s) anyway. The more exposure you have to the business, the more you learn, the faster you grow.

Success results when preparedness (your prospect) and opportunity (what you can offer) meet. Select those who are prepared – those who have a POSITIVE ATTITUDE (a must), who are respected and ambitious, and who are on your level or above.

Most often, the more successful a person is already, the quicker they are to see the tremendous opportunity that Ambit Energy has to offer. Remember, you are doing them a favor – they are not doing you a favor. You are offering them the opportunity for financial freedom and the realization of their dreams.

Be sure not to prejudge people. When you think, “oh, they wouldn’t be interested,” you have just made a decision for that person. A decision that deprives them of one of the greatest opportunities this country has to offer. Give them the freedom to decide. Then, they can never say that you didn’t give them a chance. Many will thank you for the rest of their lives. Prejudging can cost you more than you can imagine – in time, effort, and MONEY!

One of the great things about owning your own Ambit Energy business is that it’s perfect for introducing to people you already know — or your “warm market.”

But regardless of how many people you know, you can always expand your “ambit” (or “sphere of influence”). Here are a few ways to get more connected:

  • Have fun. Join groups that share your hobbies/interests. From stamp collecting fans (philatelists) to rock climbers, there are plenty of opportunities to meet people, make friends and share the Opportunity.
  • Get local. Sign up with your area’s Chamber of Commerce, Better Business Bureau and any kind of economic development organization — it’s a great way to meet other entrepreneurs and new residents.
  • Help the community. There are plenty of service organizations to choose from — the Rotary Club, local charities, youth sports and religious groups are just some of your options. You can do well and do business at the same time!

So open you up to new opportunities— and you’ll find that you’ve opened up to more business-growing opportunities as well!

SUCCESS THROUGH OTHERS

It’s right there in the title: Ambit Energy “Independent” Consultant.

But as we all know, one of the most important keys to success is your team. And while you rely on others to help you grow your business, it’s also your job to help them to take advantage of the Ambit Opportunity.

Some people may need a little help, others may need a lot. A few tips on working with your team members:

  • Spend your time wisely. There are only so many hours in a day — especially if you’re still working part-time. Make sure you’re giving the right amount of time to the people who need it.
  • Coach them well — and be willing to be coached as well. Your team should be full of coachable people — yourself included! Remember that even professional athletes and actors work with coaches every day.
  • Use the 5:1 ratio. Professional sports coaches and mental health professionals all agree that it’s best to give 5 compliments for every 1 criticism. We remember the “bad” more than the “good” — so the more “good” you can share, the better.
  • Build a support system. It can’t ALL be on your shoulders. Delegate to others within your organization to foster an atmosphere of teamwork.
  • Help others help themselves. We all know the “teaches a man to fish” adage. Funny thing is…it’s true!

From the bottom up, every person in your organization is important. Make sure that they all feel supported and encouraged — and as they achieve successes, you will too!
