MLM Fear Of Rejection.

Do you ever suffer from the fear of rejection in your home based business?

Has the fear of rejection ever made you STOP and think about talking to someone, skyping someone, texting someone, or even striking up a social conversation?

What has that cost you in your network marketing business?

Would you like to know HOW this happens and what to do about it?

Iit all starts on the INSIDE of YOU and your mind. I do not have time to get into the ROOT causes of fear of rejection, but I will say that it is developed overtime from your family culture and your friends that you hang out with and can be devastating to your mlm business.

I believe that you cannot change what you are not aware of.

READ THAT AGAIN.

If you are aware of something, then you can start the change process and let it start increasing your productivity and activity in your home business. That alone is worth the journey to get past the fear of rejection.

One of the things that I also know  is that a person needs to be made aware that something is harming their business.

The fear of rejection can be a silent killer that you have gotten used to and do not even know it has  ahold of you.

How does the fear of rejection impact you and your network marketing business?

Here are 7 quick ways that you can tell you are influenced by it, and how it shapes your thinking, influences your perspective,  and directs your actions:

1. Fear Of Rejection (FOR) can get you to start believing that FEAR stands for Forget Everything And Run.

Most of the network marketing distributors that get rejected once, get all down in the mouth, and give up.

Face what you fear and watch the fear grow smaller. A great book I recommend for facing your fear is “Feel  the  Fear and Do It Anyway.”

2.” FOR” can get your believing that the emotion of rejection reflects the sum total of your worth as a person.

Result? After being rejected, never take a risk again.

The words RISK and RISE contain the same first 3 letters. That is NO accident. Risk will always carry consequences, but you must RISE above the fear and create the POWERFUL consequences and results that will accelerate everything in your home business.

3. “FOR” can force you to play the rejection over and over again in your mind. This helps keep it fresh, alive, and a great excuse for not starting.

Fear of rejection in mlm can catalyze you having a large and ongoing pity party. Even though you’re the only invited guest, unless you hang around the same kind of fearful people.

Get rid of the party.

WIMP stand for “Woe Is Me Party.” That is exactly what FOR can turn you into. A wimp.

4. Take a tip from Rabbit in Winnie the Pooh and think: “Why does this always happen to me?

“Why, oh why, oh why?”

FOR can make you really good at it, as you practice being afraid to ask people for some help, or their time, or just a connection in social media.

Get rid of the pity party,. No one is going to care anyway. BUT- they will surely care if you help THEM get out of their own pity party by showing them how to take a hold of their destiny with YOUR home business.

5. FOR can get you believing that everyone knows you were rejected and made to look like a fool,  and all are looking at you and talking about you.

Well, that may seem to be happening, but it is not.

Pull yourself up out of the emotional pit you have dug, and realize that YOU are in control of your emotions, not others. Go out and ACT like a Leader you are, and not the putz that your emotions are trying to GET YOU TO BELIEVE.

Release the Greatness in you. Become who you REALLY ARE in network marketing. Dont’ believe the B.S. your emotions are telling you.

6. FOR can fill you up with B.S.

Yes, you rad that right.

B.S. That stands for Belief Systems. FOR can temporarily alter the belief systems you have about yourself and can stop you cold in your tracks…with fear.

Get rid of the B.S. and start KNOWING you are GREAT and a GENIUS at this business and life.

7. FOR can help you get stuck. A good way to do that is to stay focused on the rejection and never worry about moving forward.

Being stuck is a choice, not  destiny. get UN-STUCK.  Start moving. Take ONE small action. Then take another SMALL action. Then another. Then another. Then another. Until you have crawled out of that “place of stuck” and started moving again.

There is no “stuck” – strong enough, that a few small actions taken cannot get you out of.

These are 7 ways that the Fear of Rejection can influence you and stop your business, and 7 ways to break you out of it. I would suggest you look for these in YOU and in your group, and start breaking the fear of rejection off of people and your network marketing home business.

    Just take a step!
    People who know what they want, take a step!
    FOCUS ON THE FOCUS.

    • Focus on The Focus! amen!!!!!!! doug

    • Hey Tim,

      We’re all experiencing a big time paradigm shift through the mastermind seminars. I listened to week 1 again today and am blown away at how easy it sounds to overcome the fear.

      Just FOCUS on the action of asking, and don’t worry about the results, is totally a new way to think about it for me.

      This article on Fear Of Rejection is great. That is the toughest thing I deal with, but when I think about it, there really isn’t anything to be afraid of.

      Tim and Doug, thanks for sharing.

    • FEAR is in our past! With Doug’s help and guidance we are moving into a FEARLESS world where we only FOCUS ON OUR FOCUS!

    • I like that Tim! People who want what they want, take a step!

  3. I’ve also heard it said that FEAR is “false expectations appearing real.” Great teaching, as always, with a lot of new information that I’ve never seen or heard before. You are a master, and I appreciate you and am happy to be able to learn from you!! Blessings!!

  4. Very powerful post! I will not longer let FOR rule my life! Thanks Doug!

  5. Vanessa Crosson says:

    Rejection. Nobody likes it, no matter the profession. You’ve given encouragement and wisdom on such a NOT SO FUN subject. Great supplement to the 2012 Mastermind session! “Buckle Up!”

  6. This is really true. Starting with the picture, the fear of rejection is worse than the rejection itself! Thanks for this awesome article.

    • Thank you Gabriel- fear of rejection it one of the cancers in home business!~

    • Part of doing business is about asking questions. More people are going to say no to what we have to offer than will say yes to the products or business opportunity. With this in mind, we move through the no’s to get to the yes! If we let fear slow us down or stop us, we will not be able to succeed in business.

  7. It really is an eye opening article!
