4 Steps To Create Momentum In Your Business
We all want a business that runs on auto pilot. It should be simple, right? Unfortunately, we must work hard in the beginning to build an unstoppable business.
So what can we do to create that kind of business right now? There are 4 steps I outline below.
I’m not going to tell you they are easy steps, but utilizing all four will get you there faster.
Need For Speed
You may believe slow and steady wins the race, and in almost everything else that’s true. But if you want to build a business with momentum, you need speed.
Crawling along like a tortoise does not create momentum. Sure, it will get you there eventually. But let me ask you: Do you want eventually or do you want now?
The speed of the leader determines the speed of the team. If you are growing and changing and creating systems for your team to follow, they are going to do the same.
If you’re crawling around, doing small things every few days, that’s what your team is going to do.
What is the easiest way to get someone to stick around on your team? Help them get a taste of success. That first taste will get them hooked and they will build momentum off that.
Do You Know It’s Right?
The next thing you need to have is conviction. You have to know 1000% your products are the best products, your opportunity is the best opportunity. That’s it. There’s nothing else like it out there on the planet.
Once you believe that with all your heart, it will shine through to everyone you speak to, everyone who reads your content, everyone who sees your videos.
And if you believe it, your team will believe it.
How do you grow that belief? First, you need to be a product of the product.
Second, you need a vision, a goal. You need to see that vision every day whether you have a dream board or you utilize visualization. I personally recommend using visualization.
When you take ten minutes every day and visualize yourself having already achieved your goal, your dream, it does something inside. It creates belief. It creates desire. It creates confidence.
When you sit and you can…
… see it
… taste it
… feel it
… smell it
… your brain will start to believe it has already happened.
Then an amazing thing happens. Your brain will already “know” what to do. It will unlock something inside that has been kept hidden.
You also want to lock arms with people who share your vision and who can keep you in that state of belief.
I get it. When we don’t see immediate success or our business hits a plateau, we start to let doubt creep in. Before you know it, you’re in a downward spiral. You need a vision, a belief, and a group of people that will keep you focused and on the right path.
If You Fail To Plan, You Plan To Fail
I’m not the most organized person in the world. Far from it. You should see this desk.
But I know what I need to do every single day.
You need to create a daily method of operation. You need to know what you to do every day without fail.
… overwhelm sets in…
… activities build up…
… and then you become paralyzed.
I know that feeling well. Sometimes I would sit here not knowing what to do because there was so much to do!
Creating a daily method of operation of the income producing activities you need to do on a daily basis will stop that from happening.
I know people who plan their schedule to the minute. I can’t possibly do that, but I do have checklists.
It’s too easy to “forget” or let things slide without one.
I’ve gone 3 months without posting a blog post. I just kept forgetting to do it or I would get sidetracked. Time flies when you’re having fun….and when you’re busy.
If I utilized a checklist back then, I would not have been able to let it go so easily for 3 months.
The biggest positive to having a DMO is it creates consistency. Consistency is the key to momentum. Momentum exists only with consistency and speed.
Consistency is extremely important in your business.
Too many people start and stop, start and stop. They will take “massive” action for 2 weeks straight and then stop for 4 days. They may pick it back up for a few days and then stop. This is killing their momentum. Every time they stop and then start again it’s like starting on day one.
With all the value you are putting out into the world, you are building an audience. That audience needs to see you consistently. The more you’re in their face, the better. Out of sight, out of mind. You never want to be out of mind!
“Mom, He’s Copying Me!” Good!
The last thing an unstoppable business needs is a duplicatable system.
In order to have momentum within your team, they need to be able to do what you’re doing.
Creating a duplicatable system means you can bring someone onto the team and they can pick up and run using your system.
The thing you need to remember is this system should be duplicatable even for the newbie. Learning all these really cool things doesn’t mean your team will know how to do them.
They should be very simple steps they need to take on a daily basis to create consistency — and ultimately momentum — in their businesses.
We create a DMO for our team members with very simple things they should be doing on a daily basis such as reading a personal development book for 30 minutes, reaching out to people, inviting people to watch the company video, inviting people to webinars, doing 3-way calls (OMG, this helps put an end to the 3-way calls, unless of course you have someone who really needs that personal touch to help them make a decision).
Next, we created a team training page of simple marketing training on social media, blogging, and also training on prospecting and recruiting.
We are building momentum in our businesses.
Having this duplicatable system in place allows our team and the new members they bring in to utilize these exact steps WITHOUT Mark and I having to do everything for them.
I’m sure if you have a team, you’ve trained each one of them on a 1-on-1 basis. Wouldn’t it have been much simpler to have a training page to direct them to instead?
And it’s a team page which means they share it with their team and so on and so on…..which makes it duplicatable!
