The new year gives us a chance to start with a clean slate. Every year begins like a freshly cleared whiteboard – full of possibilities, ideas, and aspirations. Many of us in the network marketing business have a bunch of goals and milestones to get to, as the year unfolds. Making new year resolutions is often easy. The tricky part is sticking with them.
Here are a couple of scenarios – you have your resolutions all chalked out and ready but are unsure about how to actually get them done with focus and direction. Or you feel that like every year before, you run out of fuel before meeting these resolutions. Either way, making 2024 your year is in your hands. Read on for some handy tips to help you stick to the resolutions you set for yourself. And, if you’ve not yet defined your new year goals, we have a few here to get you going.
1. Pay attention to both business and personal goals
Studies show that a good portion of new year resolutions are about personal development. A relatively smaller percentage of individuals revisit their career paths. We suggest you do both – have a balance of health, physical wellness, and lifestyle-based goals along with financial wellness, which is often about making the right moves, career-wise.
This is because making these resolutions are a great opportunity to introspect, reprioritise, and most of all, make a fresh start. After all, in 2024, you have at least 366 opportunities to do just that.
2. Stay true to your dream
You have come this far on your journey fuelled by a certain dream or career aspiration. And it’s important that you stay true to it. At the same time, do not limit yourself but develop a greater capacity to dream big and the courage to do the extra stretch even if it seems unattainable at first. In the words of famous entrepreneur, Sir Richard Branson, “If your dreams don’t scare you, they are too small.”
3. Nurture growth opportunities
Whether you’re new to direct selling or wish to make a deeper impact in the field, there’s no better time than now to revisit your achievements, mark out new milestones, put them down on paper/whiteboard, and work on how to get there. That calls for constant nurturing of the mind.
The world’s most revered business leaders and entrepreneurs have an insatiable curiosity and quest for knowledge, in common. Many like Bill Gates and Warren Buffet are also voracious readers. Including a daily reading diet could be your way to acquire a wealth of knowledge and inspiration to serve you well in your career as a network marketing professional.
QNET tip: If you don’t particularly enjoy reading, try listening to podcasts by your favourite motivational speaker/influencer to boost you with insightful nuggets on the go.
At the same time, nurture your physical self with the right amount of exercise, nutritional supplements, and skin care as part of your everyday routine.

4. Make time for regular physical exercise
According to Bill Phillips, a US-based businessman and author, “Exercise is the most potent and underrated antidepressant.” This mind-set finds an echo in various studies and researched articles including this one, which talk about its positive influence on sleep, moods, quality of life, and more particularly, your self-image and confidence.
While you’re busy sharpening your brain to navigate a career of your choosing, balance it with physical activities. Don’t neglect the fact that your body needs a proper physical workout to stay active and lively. That means following a strict regime for a physical workout. Gym or yoga or squash or swimming or any other form of exercise, the choice is yours. Stick to it to also stay mentally sharp and brimming with positive energy, overall.
Regular exercise can teach you consistency and discipline, which can trickle into other aspects of your life and keep you motivated to work towards your goals.

What is the advantage of Direct Selling as a career compared to selling in the traditional way?
Selling in the traditional way entails costs of a physical store for initial setup and ongoing maintenance etc. apart from umpteen other costs. In a country like India, there is an abundance of small and micro businesses that make it difficult and overwhelming for a newcomer to set up shop and make a name for themselves.
On the other hand, direct selling essentially means no intermediary is involved in your engagements with a prospective buyer. And you can do it from any convenient space including an outlet in a mall or your home office, thus saving the expenses of maintaining a dedicated physical shop for your direct selling activities.
What you need is definitely an online shop that you can set up easily. You can practice direct selling, without any fuss or frills.
