Stumblings vs failure

I saw a fabulous meme on social media this week. The basic message: don’t confuse a stumbling with a failure.

When we start out in Network Marketing, everything we do is new. Our first practice of the business presentation. Our first phone call, text, or Message to set a business presentation appointment. Asking for the sale. Enrolling and coaching.

At the beginning we stumble. A lot. It’s all new. For some of us, it has simply been many years since we tried something new, and we forget what a learning curve feels and sounds like.

Being an adult doesn’t bypass the awkwardness of learning a new skill. Sometimes we forget that fact, acting as if being adult means one has competence over everything.

(I certainly don’t!)

Stumbling looms large if we take the stumbling as a sign of permanent incompetence, such as, “I’ll never be good at this.”

The trick is to let the stumblings be proof to your brain that you are learning, instead of false evidence of a wasted effort.

Stumble forward.
