The law of averages work with the law of high numbers. In your first year in MLM you are learning how to get good at what you do. I guarantee that my numbers are much higher than yours are. Why? Because I can read the defenses.
A quarterback in a new system spends most of his time learning the plays. When the plays are second nature, he starts learning the defenses and how to spot what the other guys are going to throw at him in that particular play. When he gets real good at reading those defenses, he can call audibles if everything doesn’t look right.
MLM is the same thing. Have you read Dale Carnagie’s “How To Win Friends And Influence People”? If not, you should make that a career priority. In fact I read it at least once a year.
Also, you need to fail a lot in your first year. I am not saying try to fail, but talk to lots and lots of people your first year. There is no substitute for experience. Most people make the mistake of wanting to be perfect before they talk to anyone. It should be just the opposite, talk to lots of people and you will get very good at what you do.
Knowledge won’t breed activity but activity will breed knowledge. Don’t worry about the numbers now as far as success ratios go, go out and get a lot on you, talk to lots of people, fail several times each day. You will get good and you will start to earn a great deal of money while you are learning to get good.
