Okay why can’t I seem to get in to the mindset of a leader? This is one of the first questions that I had to asks myself over and over. Imagine your self as the leader, position yourself as the leader and be the leader. So why is it harder for some of us and others seem to be the leader from the start.
Mindset is opening your mind to education and the endless possibilities of sharing that information. If you are reading this you have already gain value and you can start this by teaching what you have read, heard or experience to the people who are in your targeted market. You have chosen marketing and that is why you are here and that is why I am here.
Learn everything about your niche and share your knowledge and experience on the journey that you are going through. So many of us have a story to share. Why have you picked the company and the products they are selling or directing people to? I know the health products and how great they are. If I don’t share why, you will never know. Companies today have great websites with a wealth of knowledge filled with ways to promote the company and their products. Keep in mind these sites are owned by the companies.
By answering the questions your prospect and customers have you are giving value. Share what you know about your company. When you learn and are involved with them on a regular bases it becomes easier to help others make decisions to become a part of your company or a customer of the products you have to offer.
This is one way you can position yourself, as an expert and as you do this you will find that you will develop the mindset of the leader. You will be compelled to share what you are learning about the company and the products to anyone who will listen. Thus taking the roll as a teacher and teachers are leaders.
When looking for a mentor I have found that there are few that I want to follow 100% and so many have special qualities that I am willing to adapt in my profile as a leader. That is why I know the more you learn the more you grow into the mindset of a great leader. By taking the qualities I love about these people I can develop my own leadership skills.
These things will help you in your journey to become a great leader:
Start with some free training you can find on the internet. Keeping in mind most marketers are following the same formula. (Know your company, know your product, introduce your product, give away something for free.) Masters give you a wealth of value and so much is free. Yet they can not make you into what you want to be. You will have to create a mindset free from fear and ready to act on what they teach you. Doing a search on YouTube, EzineArticles, WordPress, blogger just to name a few that can help you get started. Then there are always the free training you can get from the company you join. Why not take it up a notch and find mentors and soak in the free value and purchase the programs that will launch you into the leadership roll from the get go. So many of these masters have ways you can earn as you learn so your training can paid for its self. They walk you through the process of building your own site, managing your site and developing your own leads (list of clients or customers that follow you).
I found that I was lost is a sea of free training and needed a different approach an that is when I started searching for the people who have the finger on the pulse of what marketing is all about. I am a visual learner and the videos and webinars I found were my ticket. It gave me the confidence to lose the fear and act on my training. So sharing this with you was a no brainier. Get direction and a purpose for what we do. We are marketers that intend to succeed.
Mindset is you having the confidence in yourself and training that you have taken time to learn and want to share with others. Once you start you will see that it was in you from the start.
The way to the future is one step at a time, it is up to us to take the first step.
