The new Spiderman movie, ‘Spiderman: Now Way Home’, is out. It is all anyone can talk about right now and with good cause! Spiderman is one of our favourite superheroes for many reasons. One of them is his ability to overcome challenges and keep moving forward. Therefore, this article is a reflection of some of the most inspiring moments from the Spiderman multi-verse for all QNET entrepreneurs. In addition, we’ll look at a few important lessons that QNET entrepreneurs can learn to overcome challenges in their business. (There’s nothing to worry about, no spoilers here!)
How to Overcome Challenges in business like Spiderman?
Challenges are part and parcel of business, just like they are part and parcel of Spiderman’s adventures. Sometimes an individual might feel overwhelmed due to unfavourable circumstances. To inspire and motivate all the entrepreneurs out there, here are a few important lessons from our friendly neighbourhood, Spiderman.
1) Don’t give up when faced with rejections
Most of us remember the famous scene from the first Spiderman movie featuring Tobey Maguire, where he stands on top of a building trying to figure out how to release web-shooters. The chances are that he probably tried an inordinate amount of times before figuring out the right technique. Let’s imagine if he had just given up and walked away. He would probably have never been able to discover his secret power and become everybody’s favourite superhero.
Another instance comes from the new Spiderman movie, Spiderman: No Way Home, when the admissions office at MIT rejects Peter Parker and his friends. Now, under such circumstances, giving up would be the easy option. But not for Spiderman! He makes an effort to convince the head of admissions, even if it comes at the expense of fighting a supervillain from a different universe.
Now, an entrepreneur might face rejections from many prospects and customers. Rather than viewing the rejection as a failure and giving up altogether, it is important for an entrepreneur to keep trying until they are successful. In essence, entrepreneurs need to overcome their inhibitions and keep moving forward in the face of rejections.
2) Always keep learning
Every entrepreneur needs to invest time in learning new skills and accumulate information that would help them grow their business. Just like Spiderman, who started as a beginner and then transformed into one of the most skilled superheroes. Whether it’s slinging from building to building or crawling extremely tall walls, Spiderman had to develop skills over time with consistent repetitions.
The same principle is applicable to QNET entrepreneurs as they need to invest time and effort in honing their skills. Whether it is presentation or marketing skills, or new business strategies, it is pivotal for them to always keep learning.
Fortunately, QNET provides multiple sources, including marketing materials, presentations and training programs for distributors to educate themselves. Moreover, the QNET Website and social media pages are a great source for new distributors to get started and learn more about the QNET business opportunity.
3) Form partnerships and alliances
One of the most important things that one can learn from the Marvel’s Spiderman series is the importance of forming partnerships and alliances. In Spiderman: Homecoming, Spidey teams up with his best friend Ned to locate and defeat the antagonist, the Vulture. He then goes on to be an indispensable part of the Avengers to fight evil forces.
In Spiderman: No Way Home, he forms a formidable team with Dr. Strange to fight supervillains from the multi-verse. This emphasises the fact that it is very important to find like-minded people and to practice synergy.
Networking is a key aspect of any business. It is especially important for QNET distributors to form networks that would help them scale their business. Moreover, it plays a huge role in helping them elevate in terms of rank advancement and earning more compensation. (Read more: QNET’s Compensation Plan)
4) Accepting situations and moving forward
Sometimes, even superheroes cannot control the outcome of a situation. Sometimes, things are bound to fall apart under unexpected circumstances. Just like in the first Spiderman movie, when Spiderman had to deal with the loss of uncle Ben. It was an irreversible situation and a heart-wrenching moment for the young Spiderman.
In the most recent Marvel series, the school-going Spiderman had his suit taken away from him by Tony Stark. It was a difficult situation for the young Spidey to accept. However, it was a situation with which he had to reconcile and move forward.
In an entrepreneur’s journey, many circumstances arise where the outcome is not in their hands. It could mean facing rejections from customers or teammates moving on to different professions. Sometimes, it is necessary to practice acceptance and move forward to the next task or goal.
5) Accepting Responsibility
“With great power comes great responsibility” – famous words from Uncle Ben, and Aunt May in the most recent series. Many times Spiderman had to accept responsibility for unforeseen situations. For instance, in the Amazing Spiderman series, he had to take responsibility for helping his friend Harry Osborn receive the cure from a fatal health condition. Moreover, to understand the consequences of the treatment that would turn him into Green Goblin.
In the alternate Marvel universe, a young Spiderman learns about taking responsibility for his actions. He understands that being Spiderman is more than just wearing a suit and defeating villains. In fact, to be a superhero means being responsible for the safety of other people. Furthermore, it means establishing values and principles.
Just like Spiderman, QNET entrepreneurs need to be aware of the potential of the opportunity presented to them. The opportunity has the power to help millions of people. However, if it is misused, it can be highly detrimental and counter-productive. It is therefore important that distributors understand and follow ethics. It will help them run their business smoothly and earn respect for their honest work.
In essence, accepting responsibility means to understand that with a great opportunity comes the responsibility of protecting the sanctity of the opportunity by upholding ethics and values.
