How To Handle Negativity In Your Network Marketing Business

How To Handle Negativity In Your Network Marketing Business

Wondering how handle negativity in your network marketing business?

How to handle negativity is a huge part of either you’re going to be successful or you’re not.

This is not utopia; our business is a business, just like any other business. We’re going to have ups and downs, we’re going to have positives and negatives. Today I want to talk to you a little bit about how do you handle that.

There’s a rule and there’s a law that says, “Everything positive goes to your downline, everything negative goes to the upline.” That’s a rule, and that’s one of those million dollar rules.

If you listen and apply those rules, it’s actually going to help you.

We are in the business of what? Creating leadership, motivating people, keeping people positive mental attitude. Positive.

Do Problems Arise In Your Organization?

If you’re selling a service, if you’re selling a product; you’re going to have back orders, you’re going to have some products that will probably come that’s damaged. Maybe you might have a service that something happened, and they changed some terms and conditions; maybe it doesn’t exactly work exactly like you said. Those are issues that are not that big, but if it continues to add up, then it will become bigger, and bigger, and bigger.

Whenever you have an issue, try to solve it with communication. I think whenever you can communicate with people, that’s always a good thing. It’ll solve a lot of issues.

For instance, let’s say you work in a business where you’re selling a product. You know that the product is either backordered, or this product was supposed to be launch on this date, but it’s not going to launch. What do you do? Do you call everybody in your down line, all your business partners and start telling them how bad the company is because, “They promised that they would have these products on these days. All of a sudden, the day’s come and we’re not hearing anything, they’re not saying anything.”

Do you call all the people in your organization and tell them that? NO! What you’re doing, you’re actually destroying your business. Guys, you have to be careful how you communicate with people in your organization.

Yes, we’re going to have issues; but you have to be smart on how you communicate with them. I don’t mean to tell you to try to manipulate things, and try to lie to them; none of that at all. I don’t like manipulators, and I don’t like lying to people. I’m not talking to you about that.

I’m just saying to you, there’s a right way to handle it and there’s a wrong way to handle it.

The Right Way To Handle Problems

When we have issues, let’s think like business people. Let’s think like entrepreneurs. What would an entrepreneur do? Would they go around and just yell to the world about everything that’s going wrong about our business, or do we sit and try to figure out.

“How do we solve this? Fine, this is what’s happening, this is what we have. Now, what options do we have? How do we solve this, so we can go forward and grow our business?”

Ask Your Mentor

The other option that you have is that you can always call people in your upline, people that you’re working with and say, “Hey Joe, listen. I have this happening in my organization, I want to pass it to my other organization. What’s the best way of doing that?” You’re getting counsel from your mentors.

Remember, it’s always good to have a mentor; the reason you want to have them, is so that you can get counseling from them when you have some situations, when you have issues in your organization.


I hope this has helped. I hope it has given you value to you and your organization. Feel free to share this with your team.
