Successful Networker – Your leads – Positive-Relationships


You can most certainly help others through your thoughts, and they can help you. Every good thought you send to another is a living force. However, the person you are sending the thought to has to be asking for the same thing you are sending. If the person does not want it, then they are not in harmony with your thought frequency, and it will not penetrate them. You cannot create in another’s life against their will, but if it is something they want, your thoughts are a real force that helps them.

May the joy be with you, Rhonda Byrne


Man on stool thinkIt is said that regardless of where your leads come from!.  To me this is a bit cold and not personal!  I prefer ‘obtaining contacts/leads’ for your Networking Business.  This is crucial to your success and the prospects of course. Once you have your contacts list, it is important to call them right away, talk about them, find out what they want and are looking for not what is usually stated “talking about your business first” the  reason is building relationships first is more personal and paramount if you would like to succeed, as they then become warmer as there is no pressure.  This helps you find out what they want before you should even consider what your wants.

Your initial contact with your networking business may be by email. To have the best chance to sponsor these home business seekers, you will need not want to book a call or if you have a number call them if at all possible. Remember ask them why they made the initial contact, what is it they are looking for..

When the hour arrives to actually make that phone call, your phone can feel rather ‘heavy’ or on ‘fire’ or any other thing or reason that will be used to put off making that call!!

Many people in networking or any other business, where some one  has to make a call to a new stranger/customer/leads/prospects, dread picking up the phone to call then, it is harder for someone looking at networking as they usually have a job anyway.  Three of the biggest mental blocks to making those calls can be: 

a) Fear of not knowing what to say

b) Fear of being asked questions you can’t answer

c) Fear of coming across poorly and being rejected

d) Lack of Confidence, this is normal at first.

Dreams fade away because we can’t tolerate the short term pain necessary to get to our long term goal.

Here are some tips to help overcome these fears, and give you confidence to call your Networking prospects/leads without any fear.

Be a Serious Student of Your Networking Business

Take time to learn as much as you can about your products, your company,Couple hand shaking and your opportunity in general – this is one of the first things you should do and is often neglected or skimmed over. The more comfortable and familiar you feel with your business, the more confidence you’ll have when you talk to your prospects. This will help eliminate that nagging feeling of "what if they ask about…." Be prepared. Remember that is why you have a team to work with and your sponsor(s) is there for you whenever you require them.

If you put fences around people, you get sheep. ~William McKnight

Don’t Worry About Knowing Everything There is to Know

Understand that nobody expects you to know everything about your business. It is actually a point in your favour if you admit you’re not sure about something and then follow up soon with the answer. Your prospects appreciate your honesty, and this gives you another opportunity to contact them and continue building that initial relationship. Don’t worry about knowing everything there is to know, just be prepared to answer the basic questions that any new prospect might ask.

Get Your ‘One or Two Minute Story’ ready

Create and have a "story or commonly known as a cheat sheet" a guide of what to say ready. With the help of your successful up line leaders, prepare an outline of the questions and key points you’ll want to address with your prospect. Rehearse and go over these until you have them down pat. Try not to write an exact script and read it verbatim, because it will be easy to tell you’re just reading and it turns people off. A structure that you follow in your conversation is good – and almost everyone needs this.

Don’t live down to expectations. Go out there and do something remarkable." Wendy Wasserstein

Don’t You Love to do Role Playing?

Activities010[1]Get with your up line and have fun – do some role playing! I know this sounds silly, and may seem to be a waste of time, BUT in  reality though, it does lay a foundation and give you confidence when discussing your business with a real prospect. In real life, you won’t have a conversation that goes exactly as rehearsed in role play exercises, but the idea is to practice and get comfortable with the things you’ll be discussing with your prospects. When doing a role play, your up line plays the part of the lead, and your part is…you. This exercise can be very beneficial if you take it seriously.

She is teaching her students how to learn, not how to be perfect.

Relax First, Then Call Your Networking Leads

Be sure you are feeling positive and upbeat before calling any of your Networking leads. You may feel compelled to just "get it done" at times when it would be best not to. Had a bad day? Get past it before making those calls. If you feel down or negative, it comes across in your voice no matter how hard you try to hide it. If your attitude is "sigh…I ‘Really must go and Make Those Calls to my leads", try to get a little more fired up and enthused trust in your own belief.

You Were Once an Networking Lead, Too

Always remember that your Networking leads are people just like you and I –Network in blue no matter how fantastic your presentation is, or how great your voice sounds, there are some that just won’t like it. Some won’t like you no matter what you do. Some people don’t like anyone, actually. Don’t take this personally. You absolutely cannot please everyone – just be yourself, be upbeat, and do your best. Think do we all wear the  same clothes? eat the same food? NO!

You will see that the law of averages will work in your favour. Finally if you struggle with making phone calls to your prospects and leads, you are not alone! Lots of people in Networking have this issue.  This is a promise “IF” but only “IF” you put the ideas above into practice and don’t give up, you will wonder why you were ever worried and “YOU” will become a master at making these calls. No doubt, you’ll encounter some unpleasant prospects, but don’t let them stop you. It always gets better.


Set a goal to achieve something that is so big, so exhilarating that it excites you and scares you at the same time. It must be a goal that is so appealing, so much in line with your spiritual core, that you can’t get it out of your mind. If you do not get chills when you set a goal, you’re not setting big enough goals." Bob Proctor

Ambitious Networker–Attitude- Habit your constant companion


Attitude … is the “The Power of One Person YOU"

Getting the best from yourself and others all starts with one: one thought … one word … one action.
Man horse shoe feeling good“One” is the first note in orchestrating the personal attitude that shapes and directs your life – and impacts the members of your team. Contrary to the lyrics from a classic rock song, one is not the loneliest number. It’s the most important one!
Your thoughts, words, and actions are like individual notes that work in concert to create the power of one person – YOU – to make a difference. You can harness your “power of one” if you simply:

  • Catch one negative thought and turn it into a positive one;
  • Think of one thing for which you are grateful at the beginning of each day;
  • Say one “Fantastic!” when a friend or team member asks how you are doing;
  • Assume the best in an upcoming situation;
  • Keep on moving one more time when you experience adversity;
  • Help one friend or colleague in a time of need – and take pride in it.  Do not expect something in return.

Many people used to feel that one vote in an election couldn’t really make a difference. Recent political elections that have been decided by razor thin margins have proven them wrong.

A single act can make a difference … it can create a ripple effect Winnerfelt many miles and people away. So, ask yourself: What’s one thing I can do today that will make a positive difference in my attitude? Then DO IT!
Repeat that process every day and your life will improve – and so will the lives of the people you lead. Attitudes are truly powerful … and they’re contagious!  For all the right reasons..



I am your constant companion.
I am your greatest helper or heaviest burden.
I will push you onward or drag you down to failure.
I am completely at your command.
Half the things you do might just as well be turned over to me, and I will be able to do them quickly and correctly.
I am easily managed – you must merely be firm with me.
Show me exactly how you want something done, and after enough lessons, I will do it automatically.
I am the servant of all great people and, alas, of all failures.
Those who are great, I have made great.
Those who are failures, I have made failures.
I am not a machine, though I work with the precision of a machine and the intelligence of a person.
You may run me for profit or run me for ruin – it makes no difference to me.
Take me, train me, and be firm with me, and I will place the world at your feet.
Be easy with me and I will destroy you.
Who am I?
I am habit!


From The Secret Daily Teachings

The process of creation is the same for all things, whether you want to bring something to you or remove something negative from your life.

If you have a habit you wish to break, or anything negative you wish to remove from your life, you must focus on what you want. That means you visualize and imagine yourself in that negative-free state right now. Imagine yourself in as many scenes as you possibly can where the negative situation is completely absent. Imagine yourself happy and free. Eliminate any picture from your mind of you with the negative situation. Just imagine yourself in the state you want to be in, and feel that you are that, right now.

May the joy be with you – Rhonda Byrne


There is a difference between wishing for a thing and being ready to receive it. No one is ready for a thing until he believes he can acquire it. The state of mind must be belief, not mere hope or wish. Open-mindedness is essential for belief. Closed minds do not inspire faith, courage, and belief. Napoleon Hill

You are a Magnet

Remember a magnet attracts!

There is a difference between wishing for a thing and being ready to receive it. No one is ready for a thing until he believes he can acquire it. The state of mind must be belief, not mere hope or wish. Open-mindedness is essential for belief. Closed minds do not inspire faith, courage, and belief. Napoleon Hill

The law of attractions unfailingly giving you every single thing in your life based on what you are giving out. You magnetise and receive the circumstances of wealth, health and relationships, your job and every single event and experience in your life, based on the thoughts and feelings you are giving out. Give out positive thoughts and feelings about money and you magnetise positive circumstances, people and events that cause you to have a lack of money.

“Whether humanity will consciously follow the law of love, I do not know. But that need not disturb me. The law will work just as the law of gravitation works whether we accept it or not” Mahatma Ghandi

As surely as you think and feel, the law of attraction is responding to you. It does not matter whether your thoughts and feelings are good or bad, you are giving them out and they will return to you as automatically and precisely as an echo returns the same works you send out. But this means that you can change your life by changing your thoughts and feelings. Give positive thoughts and feelings and you will change your entire life!

This following passage is from another great person “Napoleon Hill” I thought it would be appropriate and as “an after thought or comment” to pass through your mind, of course in the right direction!!

Be sure about what you want from life and doubly sure of what you have to give in return.
Examine the lives of successful people, and you will find that they have paid a price that is in direct proportion to the amount of success they have earned. Close examination will almost always reveal years of study and preparation before great success is achieved. This principle is consistent in virtually every field of individual achievement — in the arts, medicine, science, or business. Nothing worthwhile ever comes easily. As you consider your own goals, also consider what you are willing to sacrifice for what you expect to receive. You should be prepared to give generously of your time and talents long before expecting a return on your investment. Many “overnight successes” laboured in obscurity for many years before they were finally recognized for their achievements. “Napoleon Hill”

Competence is the enemy of change! Seth

Ambitious – Networker

Success comes to those who become success-conscious. Failure comes to those who indifferently allow themselves to become failure-conscious. – Napoleon Hill

Inspiration Positive – Succeed

From The Secret Daily Teachings

Good is underneath every single thing that appears to be negative. If we can know that good is all there is, including in a negative situation, then we will see a negative situation transform into all good. Most people keep the good away from themselves because they label something as bad, and then, of course, that becomes their reality. But there is no bad in the Universe; it is just our inability to see things clearly from the bigger perspective.

Peace comes from knowing that good is all that exists. May the joy be with you,    Rhonda Byrne

Inspired Quote of the Day™

Doing things differently than others makes life a lot more interesting! ~ Alec Tranel

Today’s Brilliance™

Alec  Tranel

Alec Tranel

At six, Alec lost the use of his legs but was determined to make the most out of it. Now a teen, Alec shares his inspirational story with others.

If I could share 500 words of wisdom to summarize what I’ve learned so far in life, these are the important things I’d want to pass along to others…

I’d like to share some of the things that I’ve learned in my life so far that may be valuable in thinking about overcoming obstacles.

FIRST – Surround Yourself With Positive People.

There could be a lot of reasons for me to be negative. But, for as long as I remember, I have been surrounded by positive people. I focus on hanging around with people that are happy. It’s easy for anyone to be negative. But if you surround yourself with positive people you find it’s a lot more fun to be positive and make things happen!

SECOND – Stay Ahead of The World.

I try to always stay ahead of the world around me the best I can. When I meet someone for the first time, I know they have questions about my chair. So they don’t feel uncomfortable, sometimes I just answer their question before they ask it. Why am I in the chair? What happened? Then they can get their mind off my chair and on to other matters. Life is more positive and fun if you choose it to be. I choose to stay ahead positively.
THIRD – Do Things Differently Than Others.

My chair gives me the ability to stand out. I don’t do things like most other people do. But I don’t think of it as a negative. For example, I play a lot of sports in my chair.

7 years ago, I joined the Great Lakes Adaptive Sports Association (GLASA). At GLASA I actually feel normal. I play basketball and tennis about 9 months out of the year. I have also tried water skiing, sled hockey, floor hockey, track and swimming. My family even made a trip to Breckenridge, Colorado so I could do adaptive skiing for a whole week. The best part was, on my first try, I beat my Dad down the hill!

My latest sport is skateboarding but I cannot skate like everyone else. If I wanted to hang with my friends, I had to think of another way to skateboard. So, I sit on the board and I kneel on foam with my legs strapped together. I wear gloves and a helmet. I am not that good but it is fun to just sit and watch everyone else do tricks and have them give me pointers. Doing things differently than others makes life a lot more interesting!

Lastly, if you sit around and feel sorry for yourself because you can’t do things the same way everyone else does, you will go nowhere fast. If you have positive parents, friends, coaches and role models, all you can do is succeed. You have to use your brain often to keep coming up with ways to stay ahead of a world that has two legs that work. I accept that I am not perfect but I still try to do my best with what I do have. I hope you’ll do the same!


There is never  a bad time to start, only the good time; which is right now follow your dream and never give up Alec did not!  He may have some limitations but it does not stop him being the best he can be.  Do what is right and do not feel sorry for yourself.  This could be  the beginning of your future..

A negative mind never attracts happiness or material success, but it will attract their opposites.
You may trick yourself into believing that you are only playing devil’s advocate or searching for weaknesses in apparently good ideas, but in the end negative thinking always produces negative results. Just as your mind will work tirelessly to translate your positive thoughts into their physical equivalent, it will work equally hard to create negative results when all of your thoughts are negative.- Napoleon Hill
