Creating Profitable MLM Habits
Starting a home-based business when you are already working full-time and have a family can seem like a daunting task. Especially when you feel that your time is already stretched thin. The reason why people start a network marketing business is to gain back that time and be able to manage it how you want.
Creating new profitable multi-level marketing habits will help your business. It will help you create positive habits that you can work every day to achieve your goals. Successful people succeed because they are habitual.
How Long to Create a New Habit
According Dr. Maxwell Maltz, it takes 21 days to create a new habit. However, others maintain that can be the case for simple repetitive tasks but for complex changes it may take 66 days or longer for them to take hold and be automatic. This is because when you step out of your comfort zone into something new, you trigger an emotional response to that change. We tend to be wary or fearful of change, making it harder to create the new habit. Additionally, it’s easier to stay in the same automatic routine than to work to obtain a new positive habit. It can be frustrating to wait for these changes to happen and become automatic but well worth it to push forward. Once you change a highly ingrained behavior into automatic response it has become unconscious and easier.
How to Create a New Habit
