The Importance of Being Coachable

For a moment, have a think about your career.  Did it go anything like this: You finished school, went to college or into a trade.  After that you received on the job training.

Without all that education and training would you be able to professionally carry out your duties?  Probably not.

It’s no different for your Network Marketing business.  There are skills to be learned if you wish to be a professional at this gig.

Like all things, some people are gifted and naturally talented, but most of us are not.  Most of us need to be mentored, coached, guided, taught, shown all the skills needed to make it happen for us.

Acquiring the skills and know-how makes the business building much easier, faster and quite importantly, less work and more fun.

Being Coachable - You’ve heard the old saying you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink.  This saying proves to be very applicable to humans when it comes to trying to get them to do things they don’t want to do.

I’ve seen plenty of Networkers invest in books, download PDF’s, consult with their upline etc etc but they refused to open their mind and let the information flow in.  No, they just resisted and refused to learn.

They were not coachable.  Those that stayed that way, failed and quit the business.

Look upline, and look at the big names in any company.  They all chose to be coachable, they all took the information onboard and applied it to their businesses and to themselves.

Winners are Grinners.

OK so what have we learned today?

We need to be coachable, we need to open our minds and let the information flow in.  We also need to apply what we learn.
