The MLM secret to success is really a state of mind. Anyone who’s made it big within the network marketing industry will tell you that, once they starting “thinking success”, things seem to fall into place. Now, this is easier said than done. So I’ve outlined for you a few motivational tips to get you started.
MLM SECRET #1: FIND A BUSINESS THAT YOU’RE PASSIONATE ABOUT.
While it’s true that people join you business because of you, not because of your opportunity, it’s important that you feel good about what you have to offer. When you can feel true passion about your business to the point where it just doesn’t seem like work, you’re on the road to MLM success. People around you will sense your achievements and want to be a part of what you have. The way that you posture yourself with you mindset is everything.
But How do You Do It?
So you say, “Yeah, I’ve heard that, but how can I start feeling passionate about something that just costing me money on my monthly auto-ship and I still can’t seem to make the first dollar?” The answer is that you need to stop that thinking right away….
“As you think, so shall you be”…Proverbs 23:7
When you think the same thoughts over and over, whether positive or negative, they become your feelings. And, if you feel negative about any situation, you can be sure it will be getting worse! If you want to get to the point where you feel so good about your business that it emanates to others, which is what attraction marketing is all about, you need to think positive things over and over. Writing these down is a very good way to get the thoughts ingrained in your mind. For example, make a list of all the things that you know are helping you in your business right now: your computer, your supporting spouse, the down-time you have to devote, how much you enjoy learning new techniques, etc. The more you try to think of things, the more thoughts will come to you. In time, these thoughts will become feelings and can breed passion for your business which breeds MLM success.
MLM SECRET #2: BELIEVE IN YOURSELF AND YOUR ABILITIES
Actually, I shouldn’t say “believe”, because that expresses a shadow of a doubt. It’s when you “know” about your abilities that you make the shift to leadership, a quality that a successful network marketer must have. You know, like if you know how to swim and someone pushes you in the water…you don’t feel any doubts about being able to swim, right? Knowing comes from doing: “I see, and I forget, I hear, and I remember, I know, and I understand.” You must understand before you have that sense of knowing. This comes from hands on experience.
MLM SECRET #3: DON’T BE AFRAID TO TAKE RISKS
When you’re just starting out as an MLM newbie, it’s important to take the risks involved, just like you did when you learned how to ride a bicycle and how to swim. Scientists have discovered that the human body actually has no cells that are the same after seven years, yet when 20 years go by and you get back on the bike, you can ride! This is not because of your body, it’s because you have a “knowing beyond a shadow of a doubt” that you can do it. Your “knowing” as a network marketer will come when you start taking the risks involved and get first hand experience. Don’t be discouraged when you fail. Does the child learning to ride a bike say they’re going to quit because they fall down once? No, children are ambitious and positive about learning, as you need to be as well. As they say, practice makes perfect, and, given enough practice, you’ll evolve from the belief state to the knowing state, where MLM success is born.
