Follow Up Success – It’s All in Your Mind

Have you ever heard yourself say “I didn’t make my follow up calls because ” I’m afraid I’m bothering people” or ” I’m afraid I’ll make them mad.  They’ll think I’m…………………..(fill in the blank)”.  Women in particular have a fear of rejection and a fear of upsetting others (it’s not “nice”).  So we don’t always pick up the phone, even when our prospects told us they were interested in our product.  We lie to ourselves -“If they really want to buy it they’ll call me”.  We wait for weeks and then months and then tell ourselves “By now it’s too late, they won’t remember me or want what I have”.

This scenario is very common in our profession – and the solution is 100% within our own belief system – Yes, it’s all in our mind!  To work on our follow up, we mainly need to work on ourselves.  Try on these affirmations for 30 days and see if they make a difference.  (It also helps to get an accountability partner and block out time in your schedule for follow up calls).

“Following up is fun and easy”

“People are interested in what I have or they wouldn’t have asked me to call them.”

“If they say no, it’s not about me”

“I AM great at following up.

For more tips on following up, join us for our monthly Network Marketing Dream Team membership call on Thursday, May 3rd.  For details on the call, join our Network Marketing Dream Team Community.
