While millions of people live a life being controlled by outside influences: their jobs, their bills, their obligations, many of those same people attempted to breakout and create their freedom by developing a home business. Most of these same people, at one point or another, got sold the dream of residual income. Do something one time, derive income for years to come. By far the best way to get paid in America, or anywhere in the world for that matter.
But why such a failure rate? Why do so many people fail in Network Marketing? There are several answers to that question. However, I believe the biggest obstacle for most people is that they go into the business with a employee mentality, as opposed to a business mentality.
Most people start with limitations that doom them to failure. For instance, a lot of people start, from the very beginning, giving themselves a certain time limit for becoming profitable or what they define as successful. When that time arrives, they lose their steam. Slowly they start convincing themselves that they are in the wrong company. They start looking for greener pastures elsewhere.
Picking up new skills
To compound the problem, very few people are willing to add new skills to help their business succeed. Marketing, communication, leadership, motivation and inspiration are skills that the top 3% of income earners possess. I’m yet to see anyone who displays these skills and has failed in network marketing.
The one thing I know is that once you’ve been bitten by the residual income bug, you may walk away from it at some point, but it will eventually resourface. Once you fully understand the liberating power of residual income, it’s not easy to rid your mind and body of that inner desire.
The key elements for success in Network Marketing
If you are one of the millions that secretly harbor that desire, here are a few things to consider that may push you back into this amazing industry:
- Most people say they believe that if they set their mind’s to a goal, they can, in fact, achieve it. If that is true for you, the only thing holding you back is having the proper mindset. Acquiring that mindset will most definitely be worth it. Acquiring that mindset will allow you to own your life and absolutely control your, and your family’s destiny.
- As stated above, most people fail in this industry simply because they don’t understand the need to gain new skills. Ironically, change is something most people are looking for. Yet, change is something people despise. While they want change, they fear change. If you forget everything else you learn on this blog post, understand that change is required in order for you to advance in life. In order for you to achieve the goals you envision, and become the person you know you can be, some major changes must take place. Don’t fear change. Embrace it.
- Focus on helping others. When your entire focus is on making your business work, you create a detrimental tunnel vision that dooms you to failure. The facts are that you will do more for others than you will do for yourself. You will invest more energy in accomplishing a goal for your family or the people you love than you would for yourself. Knowing that, if you consciously shift your attention to helping others, you transform your focus, therefore your actions and motivations.
If you were ever bitten by the network marketing bug, and somewhere in you that feeling is still looking for it’s release, don’t give up on yourself. There are a lot of variables that will make your quest for success achievable. Some people will find it easier than others. In all honesty,I can’t tell you if it will be easy or hard for you. However, I can assure you it will be worth it.
Reignite your passion to own your life. Get the right mindset, pick up the skills, and focus your attention on helping others. Your world will change to such a degree you can’t even imagine.
