Today I made a post on my private Beachbody Coach team facebook group wall giving some insight on the importance of staying focused while building a Beachbody business. This facebook group currently has just under 700 members and is made up of Beachbody Coaches on my team, from all walks of life. This group is a great place for Coaches to ask questions, connect with other Coaches, and find valuable ideas, tips, and strategies to help them grow their business. Any one that joins my team will be added to this group and be able to reap the rewards of having 700 other like minded individuals in their corner rooting for them to succeed.
This is what I wrote in the facebook wall post:
Do you have “Shiny Object Syndrome?
I’ll be honest, I had S.O.S. when I first was introduced to the idea of making money online, I think the majority of us have it at first…there are so many different tools and systems out there, we keep looking the best one. But don’t make the same mistake I did, I wasted so much time. Instead, learn from my mistake.
It’s so easy to lose focus and get distracted by a new “shiny object”, or the latest and greatest “magic secret system” that is guaranteed to help you make $267,000 in the next 10 days.
Staying focused and being able to put blinders on is a skill that takes conscious effort. Every day my email inbox is filled with all kinds of great tools and opportunities that I know I must ignore. I’ll admit, sometimes its hard to do. But it is important to not get side tracked. I see a lot of new Coaches coming into the business, then immediately jumping to something else thinking that they’ve found “the answer”.
Here is what you must understand. The skills required to be successful as a Beachbody Coach, are the same skills required to be successful in the majority of the “other” businesses or money making opportunities out there. I choose Beachbody because they have the best products, the best business model, and I know they are going to be around for a very long time.
My point is, put laser-like focus on your Beachbody business. Know that a secret strategy or blueprint to success doesn’t exist, so don’t even waste time looking for it. Delete those emails trying to sell you something, ignore those facebook ads, and learn to put your blinders on and focus on result producing activities for your business….
