Tips 9 & 10 for Direct Selling Success

9. Don't Compare your Progress or Success to Others
No matter what is happening in your life, it isn't the same as what is happening in another person's life so why use someone else as your benchmark? Set your own goals and determine for yourself what is best for you. Determine what does success really mean for you? It may not mean being #1 in your company, but instead, it may mean earning enough money to be able to stay at home full time. Success may mean that you have reached the point where you feel good about standing in front of people to do your presentation. Progress may be for you to get 6 shows on the calendar. If you do better than you have done before, that's progress.

10. Ask for Help Along the Way
When you do get stuck, you need to seek out someone who knows how to help you out. It may mean calling your sponsor or director, maybe listening to company CD's, read the company manual, read a self-help book, or get a coach. Attend national convention and go to your local meetings. You don't have to know it all to build your business. You just have to start and believe that there will always be someone who will know the answers to the questions you don't know.
