Sure, you've seen them, the heavy hitters with their network marketing success stories. If you have not seen them in person at company events, you have seen their pictures on the internet alongside their dream homes and their luxury cars. Are the stories and the pictures all a lie, or could they be true? And if they are true, what is holding you back from getting a piece of that success? Part of the answer lies in the methods that your upline is teaching you.
You have probably learned a lot about motivating yourself along with a ton of information about why your company's products are so much better than the competition. I am sure you use the products yourself and have genuine faith in them, and that's great. But true success in network marketing requires more than that. There are some vital pieces that are missing from your copy of the map for network marketing success.
The first one is something that many companies and uplines mention, but without really making you understand how important it is. The truth is, it's a more important part of your success than anything else - including the product. So what is it? It is . investing in YOU. Most company training programs include the idea of goal-setting, but goals are not much help unless they are truly your own goals.
If not, you will not take them seriously and you will quickly forget them. To be effective, goals should be about what you truly want from your business, not about how many leads you generate or how much product you are selling. Most network marketers don't have goals they can truly relate to, because they don't put enough time into investing in themselves. Investing In Myself - Sounds Good, But What Does it Mean? Really, it couldn't be any easier. All you have to do is boost your success mindset with a daily dose of passive self improvement. If you don't, success will always seem out of your reach.
It's as if your mindset has a vitamin deficiency. It needs its daily intake! All you have to do is hang out with the successful people. You don't need to have access to them in person. That's why this is like a cheat. You can cover it by simply soaking up their ideas. It's well known that we take on the characteristics of the people that we hang out with most.
If all your friends are successful people, then there's a good chance you will soon be successful too. Why? Because you begin to talk, think and act like them. Soon, your ideas of what you are capable of, have completely changed. Listening to mindset motivational material every day is incredibly powerful! It can completely change your outlook, especially regarding your own true worth. It can also help to rid you of the boundaries that limit you, boundaries that do not exist except in your mind. This is true whether it is someone well known on the success circuit like an audio from Jack Canfield, Tony Robbins or Jim Rohn or whether it is somebody who is successful within your own company or in your upline.
It may seem hard to believe. Most network marketers would consider it a waste of time to spend just 15 or 20 minutes a day listening to a motivational speaker. Maybe that's why most network marketers are not getting the results they hoped for! This material is like gold to those who truly want to make a success of their business.
The quit rate in MLM and network marketing companies is staggering. Most distributors give up in the first couple of months. Around 90% quit within 6 months, almost always without making much money and often without even covering their costs. Often, these people will move on to another MLM opportunity. If you are in that position, it's time to change.
Motivational self-improvement can turn your apparent failures into stepping stones to success. It is simply a question of bringing the millionaire mindset into your daily life. I do mean daily - you need to be listening to success seven days a week if possible. Make sure it is always at least six.
Pretty soon it will become part of your life, and almost without trying, you should find yourself moving toward network marketing success.
But there's worse to come. You are being deceived - and you're almost certainly deceiving others too. Discover the shameful truth in Ann Sieg's free report, The 7 Great Lies Of Network Marketing
