Fear of Trying

We all go through life fearing something.  Like bugs (hate them) and high places (hate that more).  But the worse fear I believe is the fear of trying.  We put things on the back burner because we dont want to try them for fear of …..? what?  Failing would be my first guess.  But if we dont try we will never know the feeling of success …. and it is only through our failures that we learn.

 

And so as I speak to my team, I try to instill in them that they must keep trying.  Success does not come over night. In our business we must get out everyday and talk to people.  Will we be turned down? Yes, not everyone is going to be interested in our business.  But we have to find ways to communicating with different people on why it is best for them to be interested in our products.

When we try to sell makeup to a person who doesn’t wear any – of course, it will not get us anywhere.  But what if that person can be encouraged to add a little eyeliner or blush.  And failing that, we all need to wash our face….Avon has the best cleanser in the world.

I also find it helpful if I stay away from recommending makeup to those who won’t listen and ask them about their fashion and jewelry because Avon is more than makeup.  And if all else fails, I offer them my 10% discount card…..everyone loves a discount.

For those of my readers who would like a free discount card, please leave a comment and I will gladly send you one.
