There are many things that can take you out of Network Marketing, and MLM. I call them "MLM Landmines." These are things that can sneak up on you, and blow you right out of the water, and totally out of Success. If you understand these three things, you will find that Success will be much easier to obtain, and your Network Marketing business will be able to stay on track.
What is a Landmine? It is something that is used in a battle, that is buried underneath the ground, and when someone steps on it, it blows up. It is the same principle with MLM. You are in a battle yourself. It is a battle between Success and Mediocrity, and the battlefield is your thinking. It can be a fierce battle as Success intimidates a lot of people who have embraced mediocrity, and many times your friends will not want you to walk that Success Path in network marketing, and leave them behind. Don't leave them behind. Offer to take them with you.
The three MLM Landmines are easy to spot, if you know where they are, and what they look like.
So...what are they?
1) The Landmine of Listening to the WRONG PEOPLE.
Many times, we can be really on a roll, and having Success in MLM, and when something goes wrong, then the people start talking. The Negative Crowd shows up, and starts telling you that they were right,and you are going to fail. They tell you that you are stupid for wanting more in life, and you should be happy where you are. "Don't think that you are all that," they often say, and they start the negative banter.
Let me ask you a serious question:
What Success do they honestly have in their life that gives them the right to try and steal yours?
If you are not careful, their words will blow up your dreams, and you will end up discouraged and wanting to quit. NEVER listen to the Wrong People.
Who are the Wrong People? They are negative, limiting, and never going anywhere folks who want everybody else to go nowhere. God bless them, but they are not focused on making a life, but simply living a life.
Beware of that Landmine. You deserve a Life of Total Success.
2) Doubting what your Dreams are telling you.
This MLM landmine is a big one. Your dreams can tell you that you are on your way, and Success in Network Marketing is right around the corner. And then you start getting some No's, and you start falling back in that rut thinking of Doubt and Hesistation.
STOP RIGHT THERE!
Don't take another step towards that MLM Landmine. Everything you need to Succeed in MLM you already have in your heart. Just put your business on "Automatic Dream Pilot" and let your dreams steer you around these Landmines, and around what your thinking is telling you.
You WILL SUCCEED, if you simply let your Dreams pilot your Success Vehicle.
3) Thinking that you will give this business a certain amount of time, and if it has not happened by then, then it is not going to happen.
This Landmine is one that has taken millions out of this business. And it is NOT the way you work Network Marketing.
You work MLM on IT's TERMS, not yours. You must give MLM the time that is needed to grow YOU first, then grow the business. A tree does not grow in 6 months, and an MLM business will not grow in 6 days. You must give it time, and the time that is required to Succeed.
The timing factor is different for everyone and where it may take one person 3 months to ignite a SuccessFire in their business, it may take you a year. Give to your business TOTAL commitment, and a TOTAL decision to go the distance. And you will find that your Success path has been cut down considerably, as people respond totally different to a person that has an "I will not be denied" focus, and "whatever it takes" mindset.
Beware of these MLM Landmines, and make sure that you steer clear of them. You don't want them to take you out of the Success game, and out of the MLM Wealth Machine that is possible for your life and future.
You are a Winner, and this battle is easy to win. Just be careful of what lies underneath your Success Path and who is trying to lay Landmines of Failure in front of you.
