It can happen to anyone, not just a MLM business owner. It is called burnout. Normally it occurs to people who are working extremely hard to reach a goal only to fall short. They feel all the hard work has been useless and they go so far as to put a “loser” tag on their own head. It becomes a type of depression and in network marketing, we see it as MLM burnout.
I have watched as many network marketers have “fallen” into MLM burnout. And they have left a business that was on the verge of exploding.
I don’t want this to happen to you, so follow along and use these tips to stay clear of, or overcome MLM burnout.
Overcoming MLM Burnout Tip #1: Take Time Off
While we preach working hard, there is also times we need to take breaks. Take a day, a weekend or even a week and put all your MLM work to the side.
It is great if you do this when you are at the verge of pulling out all your hair.
A simple vacation with 0 work involved will allow you to come back alert and refreshed.
Overcoming MLM Burnout Tip #2: Patience Is A Virtue
You have to always remember that you have started a business. It will not immediately be profitable. Most businesses aren’t. It usually takes a traditional business at least 1 year to see profits. Do you really think your MLM business will be profitable within a month or 2?
You always need to be financially prepared when starting any business, be it traditional or MLM.
Overcoming MLM Burnout Tip #3: Stay In Learning Mode
I find this to be one huge issue with many network marketers. They get to a point where they think they know it all.
If that is you, I’m sorry to “burst your bubble,” but you will never know it all.
Stay in learning mode at all times. Read, watch videos, attend company events and participate in webinars.
When you keep learning, the odds of MLM burnout are weakened greatly.
Don’t let yourself fall into MLM Burnout.
Most important tip of all is, keep a positive mental attitude. Don’t allow yourself to think, speak or act in a negative way. I also suggest that you do your best to stay clear of negative people.
