3 MLM Secrets You Must Know To Be Successful
The three things you MUST have to be successful in YOUR business-
Desire - you have to have a burning desire. It's hard for me to explain this if you don't have it and if you do have it, you know exactly what I mean. You lay in bed at night, tingling with the excitement of what you have your hands on. For me, it gets me BACK out of bed for an hour or two in the wee hours, because I can't sleep and am excited to do things. And, because this is inspired action, when I go back to bed, I fall right to sleep and wake up rested, ready to do it again. My husband thinks I am nuts, but he appreciates the efforts!
Willingness to Work - I guess that goes along with getting up at 2am, ha! No, you don't have to, but you MUST be willing to actually work your business. Take action steps to move you forward. Nothing great comes without some effort. Check your "Willingness to Work" meter and super charge it if you need to. For the first three years of my Network Marketing Career, I had a very long list of all of the things I was not willing to do in my business. Guess how far that got me? Right, not far at all. I began to make my list of what I am willing to do and I work that list consistently, without fail. I have a weekly operating system and while the days may vary a little, the weekly system does not. What is your system going to be? What are the things you will say yes to doing in your business?
Teachable Spirit - Are you truly coachable in this business? I wasn't in the early days. Boy, I am now! Do you read something in the training manual and think " I'm not doing that." Or do you neglect to get on coaching calls, or read at all? Again, check your "teachable spirit" meter, and decide to make a change if it's not registering high. Great things await you if you are willing to make the effort. Here is a word of advice – spend very little time trying to reinvent the wheel. When something comes down to you as a method to work your business avoid the tendency to try and change it around. If it isn't broken, don't fix it!
Here are three things we all have in common. These are identical for each of us. NOTHING is different about these.
Products – everyone in your company, whatever company that may be, has the same products. Their XYZ is the same as Your XYZ and so on. We are alike, here. How is it then that one person earns an obscene income and another earns pennies, or worse…nothing!
Opportunity - we all have the same opportunity as anyone else in our company. The pay plan is the same for me, if you are with my company, as it is for you. Isn't that great? When you reach each position on the pay chart, you have the same pay available as your upline or top income earner. When you sponsor someone new, you are paid the same as everyone else. You may be in Maine and I am in California, and we have so much in common.
You - YOU are the one who determines what your income will be. YOU make the difference. YOU determine it for YOU, I determine it for me. Either way, it comes down to you!
Bad news - it's YOU who makes the difference. Some people don't want to take responsibility for their success and want to blame others for failures. Stop yourself the minute you catch yourself falling into that mode. It's a trap and it doesn't affect anyone but you. It sure won't slow your upline down.
Good news - YOU can make the difference! YOU have so many amazing abilities to make it happen. You have gifts and talents waiting to be uncovered and let loose on this business. It's your desire. You must go through a process to get there. Understand the process. I've mentioned that on training calls. Everyone goes through their own process to get there. I just shared recently on a call how I used to go to convention all revved up and excited and came home feeling like the "M.L.M. poster child loser!" Why couldn't I make things happen the way everyone else could? Once I accepted responsibility for all my success, all my failures and most specifically, my actions, everything changed.
UNDERSTAND and accept that there is a process. You can speed up the process through your efforts. Know the process! Commit to being the best you can be each and every day. And, when the day is over, make sure you have done enough in your business that you feel great about yourself, and are ready to do it again (and more) tomorrow!
Make it a GREAT week!
