How Your Mind Can Do More With Minimal To No Self Motivation

What you do bridges the gap between your network marketing business goals and your results. Your drive determines the actions you take.

For certain people, their motive is determined by the reason they started a business. The stronger the WHY, the easier it is to take the necessary action for your home business success. Your WHY gives you that extra edge, so you never give up on your business and you always execute the related tasks at an optimal level.

For a few people, this is straightforwardly possible because they are skilled at formulating very strong motivational reasons for being in business. These individuals easily let this inspiration drive them, and they always perform their network marketing tasks at a peak level.

For other people though, maintaining that optimal performance when undertaking their network marketing business everyday duties proves to be quite a formidable task. One day, you could be psyched to do your very best and the next day, you're a totally different person; eager to put off the task till a later date.

So what do these individuals do to narrow the distance between their network marketing business goals and their outcomes?

Let's look at pro athletes for example. They generally have to suffer very long, gruelling seasons of training, hard work and substantially competitive fixtures in their respective disciplines.

They have to compete at a peak level, whether it's working out, or game time, and they have to repeat this feat for the entire length of the season and even beyond. Anything below this and they shrink their perceived value to their team and to other prospective teams.

Are these pro athletes always driven ALL the time? Surely they are human, and they must have some days when they just don't feel like it.

Let's face it, no matter how much you love doing something, there are some aspects of it you would rather not do at all.

With sports, you sometimes have to spend time in the gym, the pool, on the track or in the weight room. Then there's time for Public Relations work, and taking care of the business side of things. Don't forget that there are still the competitive sporting events themselves, where you have to be in ‘The Zone'.

I don't know about you, but to do this consistently takes a lot more than mere motivation.

After all, motivation is based on your confidence in your capability to do something. If you are deficient in that confidence, you will not have the needed motivation.

When it comes to your mlm business, you have to deal with prospects, promotion and marketing (which include a large number of strategies), telephone sales and recruiting, copywriting, and so many other aspects of your home based business.

Keeping on top of the tasks required of you in your business, consistently requires that you be in total control of your mind and you be ready to do anything and everything, no matter how big or small the task, or how much you feel like doing it or not.

That being said, how do you perform your home based business tasks at your peak, always?

When pro athletes speak of being in ‘The Zone', they are competing at their highest level. At this level, all parts of them are in total cooperation, working towards a common goal. By this statement, I am saying a person is composed of more than just his/her consciously controlled mind and muscles.

When you acknowledge that you are composed of more than just your conscious mind, but also have spiritual, mental, psychological and subconscious aspects to you, that's when you can see that you are a sum total of more than just your conscious mind, with all parts working in cooperation, towards a common goal.

In such a case, you would not need to do some chanting or auto-suggestion exercises and put on a ‘game face', to keep you motivated to accomplish the task at hand. You just have to gain the cooperation of all parts of you, including your subconscious mind.

When you can visualize yourself as a being composed of many parts, you will see that it's not necessary to keep you driven so you perform your network marketing business tasks at a peak level. You just need the cooperation of all parts of you.

Clinical psychologists put it clearly, when they describe hypnosis as a language you use to communicate with, and gain the cooperation of your subconscious mind.

If you've ever looked into clinical psychology, then you know that it's possible to eliminate acrophobia (fear of heights) from a person who has suffered this ailment for a very long time. This cure is never based on getting someone hyped, psyched or motivated. It is based on gaining the cooperation of the person's subconscious mind.

When you can obtain the cooperation of your subconscious mind, you can achieve anything and getting into ‘The Zone' that athletes speak about (with reference in this case, to your home based business) becomes second nature.

You no longer have to rely on auto suggestion, or chanting to yourself and telling yourself you can do it each and every day. You just have to rely on your subconscious mind; working in cooperation with you, toward a common goal.

Have you ever noticed how many big-name pro athletes use hypnosis as part of their regiment? That should give you something to think about.

However you get to communicate with your subconscious mind, gaining this cooperation is pertinent to your mlm business success and undertaking your home business duties at an optimal level.

The next time you're considering performing a chore for your network marketing business, and wondering where you're going to come up with the essential inspiration to start, remember that motivation is not a pre-requisite to get going; gain the cooperation of your subconscious mind, and you can be in ‘The Zone'.

Get in the Zone of Online Marketing

Creating a website that would represent the company to the online community is difficult; however, even more difficult is making sure your site is seen on the rankings and making sure you maintain your Ad campaigns with the search engines. Although many people are familiar with online marketing, only very few are able to achieve the results they want. The key now is to do the right move from the very beginning.

When you’ve already created a website to represent your company, you have to exert some effort and make sure it gets noticed by the search engines. Your first approach would have to be finding a company who does an all around site optimization service. This company must have the capacity to do all the necessary stages your website has to go through to get to the rankings.

First is the keyword research. The very basic of all search engine optimization projects always involves keyword research. This is the part where you get to choose the keywords you want to use for your optimization. Some SEO companies handle this process themselves and just show you a list of the keywords they’ll be using for your site’s optimization while some companies would want to get reference from you, the business owner. Since you know the business more than the SEO companies do, you have the right to get involved in this stage. Clarify areas about your marketing approach to your chosen SEO company so they will have a better idea how to start picking the right keywords for you, or even make you choose yourself instead. You can also try and get yourself some outside help from keyword research tools in the market that could do a better research for you if you’re not too satisfied or convinced with a simple keyword research. You can try using advanced keyword research tools or competitor tracking tools and know what your competitors are using to market their business online and see if you can use them on your own.

Second part is the content creation. Content creation is where your keywords are translated into website text contents. SEO companies have copywriters who do this and make sure that your keywords are integrated properly on the contents of the website. As the site owner you also have to check the way the contents are written. Again, look at it in a business’ standpoint, make sure it contains the right words that properly promote your business.

Third is the website submission. Once you go live with the search engines, everything you do with your website is monitored and will be manipulated on a third party basis by the search engines. At this stage, the search engines are now in control of putting your website on their rankings. What you and your SEO company can do is continually check and add more back links to help your website get noticed.

If you prefer the to rank high in organic rankings among major search engines you should be aware that here, number is the game. It is important for search engines that you have a numbered history on the net and numerous backlinks to high ranking sites because this shows that sites that link to you patronize you. Then again, if you’re vying for a high spot in sponsored links or the Pay-per-click rankings, you should be ready to prepare a certain budget for your advertisement. Most high profile companies take risk in this area, spending lots of money on keywords research and SEO to get the best possible search engine position for their site. So if you decide to push for this type of campaign, be prepared to deal with the cost and the competition.

It is now time for you to get out there, in the world of online marketing. Are you prepared to get in the zone?
