In order to achieve success in any home based business you must have a strong belief system. Most importantly, you must believe in yourself even when others do not. So how do you find a way to believe in yourself when other people like friends and family don’t?
One of the hardest things to deal with in your home based business is when the people nearest and dearest to you doubt you or your business. Unfortunately it’s often enough to make people give up on their dreams and quit all together.
We all want the support of our friends and family but we also must recognize that it’s important to remember that ultimately this is YOUR business, not theirs. Also know that just because they don’t believe in you or your dreams does not mean you will not prove them wrong and become successful to spite them.
It does not matter if it is your spouse, your best friend, your cousin mom, your Grandma, Co-workers or neighbors the sting of having someone you love not believe in your dream is hard to deal with. However it can and must be over come.
One thing that home based business owners might want to do is have a sit down talk with their friends, family and loved ones. Open your heart with them and simply ask for their moral support, no matter how they really feel. Be firm with them and let them know that this is a choice that you have made and you are going to follow a system and succeed.
Let them know that you are going to give this 100% and that you believe in the company and your fit in the team. Be proud of your decision and you would truly appreciate their support. Most people who really care about you will be more than happy to stick by you once they know how much it means to you.
Some of the people in your life may have had a negative experience with a home based business before. This cannot be allowed to diminish your enthusiasm. Don not let others opinions or past experiences get you down.
People fail in home based businesses all the time. Perhaps your friend or family member was just part of a bad company. Maybe they didn’t give it enough time and energy to really see any results. Whatever the reason they failed has no bearing on your future with your new company.
If you do find yourself surrounded by doubters and dream stealers let them know that you love them and respect their advice. (even if you’re not going to follow it). There is no need to get upset or have an argument to defend your personal decision.
It can be hugely gratifying to work hard and prove them wrong. Let your sponsor know the issues that you may be facing at home, they will help you get over this hurdle. Nothing makes a negative person eat their words like RESULTS. Trust me, when the people you love see you making money…they will eventually come around.
