Overcoming Fear and Doubt to Take Your Avon Business to the Next Level
Fear can hold you back in your Avon business.
One of the most important things you need to function at the highest state is your mindset.
Your mindset is incredibly important if you want to make the most sales possible.
With that said, there is no room for fear or doubt.
Growing your Avon business is pretty simple.
There are only 4 main steps:
- Prospecting for new customers & recruits.
- Getting a brochure (either paper or digital) to every customer every campaign.
- Following up with every customer you gave a brochure to every campaign before you place your order.
- Take the order, submit it to Avon and deliver to your customer, or send them to your Avon Online Store to place their order.
And then Rinse and Repeat.
It’s really that simple. You just do these 4 steps over and over again, and you will have a strong Avon business.
We have our Daily 8 System to help you work on the activities that will help you grow your business.

Today We’ll Talk About How to Overcome Fear and Doubt!
If you want to grow a big Avon business, there is no room for fear or doubt.
So, let’s tackle how you can banish both of them, as they can occur even among the most confident salespeople in the world.
It is completely normal to feel doubtful of your abilities when you are just starting out in anything.
This is even more true when you are trying to sell or promote your products or services to people you don’t know.
The doubt becomes even worse if you have experienced a series of rejections or you don’t see any improvement in the overall results of your efforts.
What you need to realize is that it is almost impossible to completely avoid doubt clouding your mind.
But of course, you still have the final say on whether or not it will sabotage your life.
You see, the reality is that you won’t always have the best product for every single customer that you meet.
Even those salespeople who do sell the best products still get rejected sometimes.
The reason for this is that your prospects have their own diverse point of view in life, and everyone comes from different backgrounds.
So, your product may be the best but too expensive for some people. Or it might not be expensive enough for others.
With that said, the best thing that you can do is to do your best and evaluate your successes and losses to see where you can improve your strategies and approaches.
The only time that you actually fail is if you let the negativity of rejection get to you and become king of your mindset.
You might end up with the irrational thinking that your prospects are not buying products from you because of some personal reason, like you are not likeable enough or that you don’t seem reliable.
You just need to accept that rejection will happen, and every single person who says no to you has their own reasons.
And there’s a really good chance it’s not even about you.
Of course, you should still try and ask questions like, “What was the point which was not appealing to the prospect?”
This kind of question can help you reflect on yourself as a salesperson and make proper changes when necessary.
But even when prospects reject you, you should still keep your door open so that you can approach them about their future needs.
Remain polite and courteous by thanking them for their time and following up with them at a later time to see if they will be interested in it by then.
The lesson is that you should take all your experiences, both positive and negative, as your tools to develop your craft.
Like doubt, fear is part of human life, and therefore, it is necessary.
It helps us in many ways, like avoiding danger and preparing the most suitable response to serious situations (fight or flight).
The problem with fear, though, is that it can create a mess in our lives when we have too much of it that it starts affecting different areas, such as work life and personal life.
For instance, some of us fear the unknown even though we don’t even know whether it will affect us or not.
The problem is that because fight or flight are often not practical responses, we have no idea how to handle them.
So, we try to avoid the situation instead, as if it’s just going to go away on its own.
But trying to dodge the problem only robs us of preparation and we end up facing the challenge anyway.
Many people have a fear of rejection and failure.
If you’re not one of those people, then good for you.
But if you are, then you need to understand that both rejection and failure are inevitable parts of our lives.
Nobody always gets to be the winner every single time. It doesn’t matter who you are!
So, if you find yourself being rejected by a prospect, it does not mean that you are less worthy in any way.
You see, fear of failure has two main aspects.
Many people don’t start contacting a client because they haven’t “perfected” everything.
But, many times, that is just their excuse for wanting to avoid rejection.
What you need to realize, though, is that if you do that, your competition get the sales.
Your delay doesn’t do you any good.
This doesn’t mean that your competitor’s products are better.
It’s just that they were able to get sales and make profits because they actually tried to sell them despite their fears and doubts.
What’s more is that your competitors may be using negative feedback as a tool to help them improve their knowledge about what the market really wants, making them even better in the end.
The Fear of Losing Control
The fear of losing control is just another fear that is common among salespeople, or basically among anyone who is trying out something new.
For instance, you might still have a fear of approaching strangers by phone or in person, especially if you are a newbie in this industry.
One thing that you need to focus on, though, is not your fear but your successes, no matter how big or small they may be.
Don’t Tell Yourself That You’re Going To Fail
Don’t expect that you will encounter failure.
Yes, it’s inevitable that you will come face to face with rejection and failure every once in a while.
But you need to accept that, move on, and do better next time.
Every time that you achieve a certain goal, write it down.
And then, whenever you feel inadequate, look at all the successes that you were able to achieve and tell yourself that you can win more in life.
