The search for network marketing success can be a long, confusing journey. It seems like you can find tips, strategies, advice and recommendations all over the Internet.
Often lost in all the confusion is one of the most basic rules of network marketing — if you want to improve your business, improve yourself. Personal development can, of course, take many forms, but I’ve found that one of the most important keys for me is to focus on my strengths.

In other words, if I concentrate on doing what I do well, my chances for success in network marketing increase. The first step is to find your strengths.
Here are three quick, easy questions you can ask yourself that will help you discover your strengths.
• What brings you joy?
This may sound easy, but many people struggle when they give this question serious thought. We’re often programmed as young children to forget about those things that make you happy. Misguided parents often think this spares their children from future heartbreak.
• What frustrates you in other people?
Think of those times when someone you know has had a difficult time performing a task that you consider easy. There’s a good chance that the task is in an area of one of your strengths.
• What do other people praise your for that you think is no big deal?
Remember when you did something that someone else couldn’t stop talking about, but you just shrugged off because it was easy for you. That’s because it involved some aspect of a strength for you.
Early in life we develop skills that are built on our strengths. Later, in school and in our careers we develop skills that are outside our strengths. When we face challenges in those areas, we get in trouble.
The truth is, we perform better when we focus on our strengths.
This is one of the great things about network marketing. You can work out of your strengths and build a team to help you take care of the aspects of business that you find most challenging.
Success in network marketing comes easiest and fastest when we do our best. We do our best when we utilize our strengths.
