I’ve fallen and I CAN get up!

Handling shame, vulnerability, and living in authenticity are topics we encounter each day as Network Marketing Professionals. Sometimes the people we thought we could count on to encourage us… end up being the most hurtful.

This week I had the pleasure of participating in a live Question and Answer forum with author Dr. Brene Brown, a research professor at The University of Houston studying vulnerability, courage, shame, and authenticity.

Did you watch her video? Brené’s 2010 TEDx Houston talk, The Power of Vulnerability, is one of the top five most viewed TED talks in the world, with over 19 million viewers.

I devoured her 2012 book “Daring Greatly” and am looking forward to digging into her brand-new “Rising Strong: The Reckoning. The Rumble. The Revolution.”

“Rising Strong” tackles an important question: how do people get RE-started after encountering a hurtful comment… or a harsh lesson from life?

From other sources I have learned that people with high IQ tend to ruminate about mistakes or insults… spending lots of time wondering WHY things went wrong. Or WHAT they did wrong. And replaying the scene many times.

Does that sound like you?

Well, I know it sounds like me. And I encounter that same phenomenon in people I coach in network marketing. So I want tools to help me guide people out of that depressive spiral.

During the Q&A, this is what I asked.

LYnn: Among my professional responsibilities is the informal coaching of colleagues who approach me for advice. Many of their struggles contain stories about handling hurtful comments about their “failures” coming from their family, friends, or business acquaintances. What is an effective way to use your research to help them?

Dr. Brene Brown: I think the Living BIG chapter in Rising Strong could be very helpful and the shame chapter in Daring Greatly!

Rocket Science Coaching Fans, if you have not read those two books, I highly recommend you  do!

and now it’s time to savor my copy of Rising Strong, which arrived in the mail this afternoon…

“Relax, you’re normal.”

Imagine standing in a crowd of people where everyone thinks network marketing is the normal and sane thing to do.

It’s one of the most powerful messages, delivered through comments from other people in the crowd: “OF COURSE you own a network marketing business! That’s what intelligent and wise people do. Welcome to the club!”

Those messages (and more) are what you will receive when you attend your company’s annual convention.

I urge you to find a way to attend.

If affording the trip is an issue, here are a few ideas.

Trade in your credit card’s frequent flyer “miles” for a reduced-fee or free flight. Board an overnight “red-eye” flight the night before the first session. Choose the cheapest aircraft route, which might take off and land 3 times before reaching your destination. Take the long-haul bus or the train. Drive there and camp out. Share a hotel room with 3 other people. (You’ll only be in the room to sleep and shower, so don’t worry about the cramped quarters.) Book your timeshare week at a facility near the convention.

I will be attending my company’s 10th convention– and my 10th with them– later this year. Give yourself the gift of “being normal” by attending yours.

Insults are the weapon of the weak.
