If It Feels Good, It Must Be Right

Is it possible to motivate yourself to do something you don't enjoy doing?
Let me illustrate with my own example.
I'm not a natural networker. I'm no good at schmoozing and talking people into doing things I want them to do.
I've been told that I'm too upfront and honest for my own good. I know its true.
So how did I land up in network marketing?
Well, I always wanted to be a stay-at-home mom AND continue working.
Now network marketing OFFLINE is not exactly my cup of tea.
My "warm market" would probably be cold to my advances.
Attend meetings? But I thought the idea was to AVOID the awful commute!
If I called a friend over, it would be to chat about college days - NOT try to "introduce" them to "my new business."
I'm simply not comfortable with many of the methods that are used to "recruit" people.
But I'm still managing to do a decent job of building my organisation.
I also manage to keep myself motivated enough to WANT to spend every waking moment on my business.
How do I do it? I found something about the business I loved - the internet!
Now the internet is a whole new ball game as far as networking is involved.
On the internet you don't get rich by approaching people who aren't interested in what you have to offer. Uninvited advances are better known by the word "spam."
You don't lurk in chat rooms - the real-world equivalent of street corners - and accost them (no matter what your upline tells you).
You find out where they hang out and then make your presence felt in those places - like search engines, ezines, discussion lists.
If you can write reports, offer useful information, establish yourself as someone willing to share their expertise - your prospects will FIND YOU.
And if you can find something about the business you love - something about it that gives you a RUSH - you will never be short on motivation.
Its my love for researching and writing reports that gives me the motivation and the edge I need.
With you it could be any number of things - helping people, interacting with others, making friends, writing articles, designing a website - all the things the internet is good for.
And you'll soon find out that if it feels good for you, it'll most likely be good for your business.

Finding Yourself: Finding Passion Series - 1 of 3
We have been told that the things we don't like in our children are the same things we don't like in ourselves. We are told that we project our own flaws and issues onto our perceived enemies in an attempt to work them out within ourselves. We stereotype people according to who they hang out with. Birds of a feather flock together. We're attracted to people like ourselves, with the same flaws.

Make Motivation Stick
Motivation is the elusive elixir. Not only does it help people do good work, and do it faster, but it also helps them feel good about it while they're doing it. Yet motivation always seems temporary, fleeting. We call a meeting, bring in a motivational speaker, and fire up the team. Yet, we know it won't last.

How To Deal With Denial
Denial is a coping mechanism commonly used when something happens that we really don't want to see. Doing this is actually quite natural. After all, we want to keep our lives in order, and we resist taking in information that we feel would result in a loss for us.

Achieving the really big goals and dreams always involves breaking it down into do-able little steps.

Those pieces of work that we hate doing can be the very ones that sabotage our success. How do you stay motivated during those parts of the journey?
Contemplating Change And Moving Into Action
Do you ever have the sense that there has to be more to life than what you are presently experiencing? Those are the moments in time where you become consciously aware of your problems, and awaken to the possibility that change could occur. Perhaps you've noticed yourself seriously considering making some changes surrounding your food habits or your weight. Possibly you've taken the time to make a mental checklist and noted all the ways that food and/or your weight affects the quality of your life. Your awareness may include some of these insights:
