Step 1: Define Your Dreams
Being true to your goals, your vision, and your values is an essential foundation of success. Because people have thousands of options for products and opportunities, they will decide to join you if they trust that you are being real with them. Knowing what motivates and inspires you helps you to be “authentic.”
Plus, being true to your own vision will help you enjoy your business and thrive long-term.
Everyone’s busy…this is probably true for you, and is going to be true for 90 percent of the people you’d like on your team. Everyone has limited time! If we are to succeed, we all need a constant reminder of why we are taking time from our busy lives to take the consistent action steps necessary for success. We call these reasons our compelling ‘why.’”
What is your COMPELLING “WHY”?
What motivation led you to start your New Earth business? Here are some general reasons many people mention:
- Improving health and wellness for myself, my family, and others
- Helping myself and my family financially
- Improving my lifestyle and having more time freedom
- Making a difference by supporting healthy change in the world
It’s important that you use these general ideas to define your passions and then refine them into the specific reasons you want this business to succeed.
Many people feel that perhaps they would never be able to make a dream into their physical reality. The following document helps you understand why we all have the capacity to make our dreams come true: Dreams Into Reality.
