One of the really cool things about owning your MLM business is that the success is solely dependent upon how much effort you put into it. Plain and simple. “Well not really Tim, there are other factors…” I can hear many of you saying right now, but I am going to tell you that you’re wrong. If you put in the time, you will flourish and become wealthy of both the mind and wallet. But it does take effort. You must “follow the doers”.
This little phrase is one from Todd Falcone, one of the biggest names in the MLM industry, and he has adopted it from people that he learned from. Todd talks about this in some of his webinars, but here is what this means in my opinion.
1. You Just Need To Take Action
Yes, just take action, ANY action, to get the ball rolling. Success in this business comes from activity. However, in my experience, SO many people make excuse after excuse before they take action. “I need to get my desk in order so that I have a clear cut space to put all the names and info of people before I get on the phone.” “I want to approach that person about my business opportunity, but I haven’t done enough in person prospecting.” I can go on and on, but I think that you get the idea. Once you start to take action, you will start having mini victories. I promise you this. Prospects will start to opt into your website. Leads will start to roll in from your marketing efforts. People will start saying “yes” to you and your team. This will happen. But you have to take action.
2. Ignore The Doubters
It is a very unfortunate thing for our industry that it has the veil of being a scam. If you are reading my blog, you know that this isn’t true, but in the general public view, many believe this. They are doubters, and they doubt because they are either ignorant or scared. In either instance, they do not warrant your time or effort. Brush them off and DO NOT let them get under their skin. They are not comfortable enough in their own mindset, which is why they are attacking you. Build the confidence to deal with these people. That is what being an entrepreneur is all about. When you ignore the doubters, you start to have even more success because you attract the winners.
3. Keep A Positive Attitude
Even if you think that you’re doing everything right, this business can be exhausting. However, this is where keeping a positive attitude is more important than ever. If you remain positive in thought, you will only attract other like minded, positive people. It will make all your hard work and efforts worth it. Plus, being positive is just more fun than being negative. Yes, it is WAY easier to be negative since many people in this world are unhappy with their current life and situations, but this is an easy thing to correct. All you have to do is choose to be positive. Wake up in the morning and say to yourself….I am not going to let the little things bother me today. I am going have an awesome day. When you say it and believe it, it will come true. And in some weird, cosmic way…nothing will give you trouble. It’s literally that easy.
So there you have it. My interpretation of Todd Falcone’s words, but I think many other MLMers believe the same thing. I would love to hear what you have to say on this topic. Am I way off here, or what else do you think can be added to this list? I would love to hear about it in the comments below.
Until next time….
