Being able to manage yourself well is a critical success factor in doing business. With the rise of new industries, particularly e-commerce and network marketing, we live in an age of extraordinary opportunity. If you possess the passion and the potential, you can rise to top of your profession regardless of where you came from.
But embracing an opportunity with passion is only the first requirement in achieving success. With it comes the responsibility to develop the right skills and manage yourself to remain constantly engaged with your goals and productive at work. As the owner of your own network marketing business, you are your own CEO.
Effectively managing yourself is a milestone in personal growth. In doing so, you cultivate deeper understanding of yourself, including your most valuable strengths and most challenging weaknesses. You also learn how to deal with other people, and what type of work environment and which practices suit your style best. And with these you are able to possess the knowledge and wisdom to do what needs to be done in order to achieve your goals, become accountable for your own decisions, and continue to strengthen your promise and potential.
Furthermore, as a network marketer, it is very important to learn how to manage yourself first before you can effectively manage your down lines. After all, how do you expect to teach others to become successful if you have not yet embodied these lessons yourself?
