Finding success or the right key to success often doesn't come automatically to any business owner. Reaching the top in MLM (which only 3% really ever do) requires being 'street smart' and extrememly determined. Here are 3 pointers which can guide you:
1) Be thankful for the opportunity and what it'll do for you. It is important to appreciate your opportunity and embrace it for what it is – you can't be embarassed, unexcited, doubtful about your business. Most people who go on to succeed in MLM see it as bridge to a certain lifestyle and lifelong goals, a means to make dreams come true, — and connect with their business from the beginning. With being happy to have it in your life, your business now becomes a part of you as you become driven to find success. Some reasons why you should be excited about network marketting include the low upfront investment with huge limitless possibilities, freedom to work when, where and with whom you choose, business ownership, creating a residual income stream and most importantly personal growth.
2) Gain an understanding of the industry. Most people look for magic bullets … and then somewhere down the line, they realize there are none. In my personal experience, understanding how the system works, what makes it work and then providing the necessary fuel (customers, and business partners) always leads to success. Conference call, books, CDs, listening to those who have succeeded always help, reading — all help sharpen your skills and provide a sure, smoother journey to the top.
3) Make a move! Unfortunately, success will not come to you, you must go out and build your business. Most distributors sit back and wait for things to happen … and then become frustrated when nothing does. Regardless of industry, businesses only grows with activity. In MLM, you are responsible for generating needed activity by exposing your bsuiness, and products and services. These will either result in new business partners joining your team or customers adding to your book of business. No one can teach you how to take action — it all starts very simply with a list!
Goodluck and I hope these 3 keys will help you find success.
