Do you wonder how your leader of your MLM group came to be? You want to be a leader but you feel like you need to have people in your downline to lead first. It’s the age old predicament, “Which came first, the chicken or the egg?” Well, you most definitely need to be a leader first to acquire the people in your downline, so the real question is: How do I become a leader when I have no one to lead?
Leaders always have something of value to share with others. Most of the time this comes in the form of knowledge. If you’ve been in the biz for a while, it might come in the form of experience and if you are a rookie, then study, study, and study. Leaders gladly give this knowledge out to their follows. As a matter of fact, the one of the reasons people follow a particular person is because they want some of their knowledge, which is the key to their success.
Leaders have a posture about them that is very ‘alpha’. Not mean or aggressive, but rather unaffected by others attempts to squash their goals. They are above pettiness. A Leader knows she will rise to the top regardless of life’s obstacles. It’s easy to say that you will succeed, but a leader has to know, deep down, that they will.
Leaders have a true desire to help other people succeed that comes from a place of true selflessness. People must feel safe following you.
Leaders must have what others want. It may be an attitude, money, success, confidence or any number of other factors, but the main point is that you MUST believe that you are a leader and believe that you have something of value to offer others. You absolutely cannot fake it! People will see right through you and follow someone else.
Becoming an MLM leader is totally possible for anyone but it does take time. If you are willing to take the time to acquire knowledge and work on your inner self, than you are on your way to becoming a valuable leader in your community.
