Before you got into network marketing did you ever see yourself owning a successful business?
For most, the answer is probably not — which is what makes every ounce of growth and every ranking win so easy to be grateful for. As you build your business and achieve levels of independence and stability you never thought possible for yourself, it's common to feel pride and gratitude for all you've accomplished.
Nothing beats those feelings, but this time of year especially, it's important that we outwardly reflect gratitude. The benefits of showing a thankful heart are abundant — not the least of which may be a boost to your business and your entire network. It's the simple things that make for the biggest success, and the power of a small "Thank you" should never be underestimated.
Below we've gathered all the ways that gratitude can help grow your business this Thanksgiving season.
Greater Social Connections
Those who express gratitude are generally more confident, conscientious, open and engaged. We all enjoy interacting with happy people; as you experience an increase to your wellbeing, others will enjoy time spent engaging with you more, and will make an effort to do so more often.
We all know that network marketing is a business of relationships. Strengthen bonds and build a bigger network by benefiting from the personal growth that comes from regularly expressing gratitude.
Encourage your network to get in on the gratitude. Organizations where recognition occurs are proven to have higher internal engagement, and engaged individuals are significantly more productive and profitable.
Creating a Sense of Community
The MLM model is such that we can all benefit from a little team building. Showing appreciation to your network is such a simple way to increase commitment to your cause and grow the sense of community that drives teams to success. Individuals who feel appreciated are more likely to be content within their company and committed to shared goals.
Enthusiasm and excitement are contagious, and spreading of awareness is what can take your business to the next level. It's been shown that gratitude promotes significant increases in motivation in a work environment. Those who feel recognized are given a reputation to live up to, and when your team is striving to succeed, you'll be sharing in their wins the whole way.
This season of giving thanks has got us all feeling grateful, but these are concepts that can be effectively capitalized year-round. You rely on your network as much as they rely on you; why not make their day by showing your thanks?
