Have You Ran Out of People?

How many times have you heard people in your downline say they have ran out of people? I personally have heard this many times and also observed that these people have some things in common. First of all, they tend to think negatively. The “Golden Rule” says what you think, you will create. So just by thinking they have ran out of prospects…they have!

Creating a positive affirmation and repeating it several times daily can help counteract negative thinking. So, your affirmation could be something like “I am so happy and grateful now that the people who are looking for me and my products has found me and become my clients or customers”.

Secondly, they keep doing the same things while getting NO results. Albert Einstein basically said this is the definition of insanity. So, if what you are doing is not getting results, STOP what you are doing! Start looking for new opportunities. They are all around you like radio waves. They veer in at you from all directions. But only if you tune yourself into their frequency.

Third, they fail to take the necessary actions. When new ideas come your way…you must ACT. Does this mean you will win? No. And when you don’t win, have you failed? Of course not. Look at the Wright Brothers. It took a couple thousand tries with jeering crowds of people along the way before they succeeded. And there are hundreds of other examples of people who took action and refused to give up.

Just because some networking professionals make 300 to 400 times more income than you do, does not mean they are 300 to 400 times smarter or harder working than you. But there is one difference. These people learned how to look for and act on opportunity. Consider what you do right now and ask yourself … How good am I at doing it? How much better could I be? People who look for and act on opportunity simply made slight adjustments that have created a difference. They act where others do not. They have pushed beyond their fears of whatever held them back. Maybe they started doing videos, face-to-face meetings, joining their local Chamber of Commerce, or a Toastmasters club. These are not big moves. Most success stories aren’t. The point is that they didn’t wait to get it right, they just started.

The people who succeed at attracting a never-ending supply of prospects are positive minded, always looking for new ideas and opportunities and are committed to taking action on their vision. These people never say… “I’ve ran out of people”. Also see my post on… “Do You Have a Success Formula?”

To your success,

    Great article Carol! It’s amazing to me to hear things like: I’ve run out of people. I was always looking for new opportunities and if you are in business you will too! There are no excuses to not start swimming in new ponds, so to speak. Get out and do the do 🙂

    Hi Carol, you are such a good writer and you always come up with great ideas for posts. You are a thinker and you are one of the people that you mention in your post. The person that keeps doing different things and it’s obvious you have a vision and you go for it.

    Thanks for inspiration,
