In my past posts, the focus is on assisting network marketers to grasp the keys to success.
My emphasis is on the Internal Factor – about your own:
Awareness (that network marketing is a great business model)
Belief (that YOU have the ability to succeed)
Clarity (of your vision and goals)
I also stress the importance of having a Success Road Map & a Mentor — in order that you are not wasting your time, money and energy in tasks that are not productive.
In my last post, my advice is to avoid F.A.I.L.U.R.E. With a great mentor, you should be able to follow the System and arrive safely to where you want to go. For those who are exploring network marketing or have not quite found your leader yet, this post can be of great help to you.
Avoiding Fantasies: (3 main ones)
Fantasy No.1 – that network marketing is about GETTING RICH QUICK.
Don Failla, author of book “The 45 Second Presentation that Will
Change Your Life” has helped many of my team members to understand
that building a SOLID network marketing organization is like building
houses. When you first began to sponsor 5 serious people, you were
digging with a SHOVEL. When you dig down into the 2nd level, that is
25 people…. you have to bring in the BULLDOZERS. When you have
taught your people how to teach their people to sponsor, you are well
on your way to bedrock. You are now beginning to excavate with STEAM SHOVELS!
What you need to do: Understand that WORK has to be put in the digging, all the way to the bedrock. If you build houses on soft ground, it is not going to last. A 2 to 5 year plan is a realistic one for most people to build a solid organization.
In my next post, I shall talk about Fantasy No. 2 – that you can be lazy because you can simply rely on one or two key people to build the organization for you.
Stay tuned to see why that is also a FANTASY.
