CLARITY

Clear Vision Clear Results

Clarity is One of the Most Essential Ingredients for Massive Success in Your Life and Business!

When you look at the success of people around the world, clarity is not readily one of the associated traits that come to mind. However when you look deeper, clarity is such an essential ingredient for all highly productive people. Today I’m going to talk about how to get CLARITY for your business but the same concepts can be used when it comes to life in general.

SO WHAT IS CLARITY?

Clarity is determining exactly what results you want to achieve and when you want to achieve them by.

The key word in that definition is “exactly”. If you don’t make the time to define your goal in exact terms, you are not setting yourself up for success. Instead, you are setting yourself up for a guessing game. General words simply do not work. Being specific, focused, and clear sends a message to our brains that is motivating, action driven and you are more likely to achieve your desired goal. Therefore clarity is reached when you know exactly what you want to achieve, and when you want to achieve it by.

Napoleon Hill, in his classic book, Think & Grow Rich, said, “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” He goes on to explain why having a clear idea on what you want to achieve in business and life is the critical reason for your motivation, actions and success.

WHY IS HAVING CLARITY SO IMPORTANT?

Without clarity, your business moves from place to place like a ship without a rudder. You tend to drift from one thing to another, without a plan to hold it together. But with clarity, you are focused on specific results or actions, you run your business “on purpose” and you will create amazing results — both for you and for your customers!

COUPLE THINGS I WANT YOU TO REMEMBER:

1) We cannot change anyone

2) Our clarity & reality is only controlled by us

3) The past is dead, the future is yet to be born — all that matters is RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO GAIN CLARITY:

1) Figure Out What You Don’t Want — I don’t want to be unlovable, I don’t want to be unloved, I don’t want to be angry, I don’t want to be broke, I don’t want my son to reject me, I don’t want drama in my life, I don’t want to feel unaccepted, I don’t want to be judged etc.

2) Figure Out What You Do Want — Extreme Opposite — I want to be so lovable that even strangers feel loved, I want to be so loved that I have no doubts, I want extreme peace in my mind and heart, I want to be financially able to take care of and bless my family and friends, I want my son to love and accept me, I want to be free of judgment of others etc.

Your business goals must be attractive to you and they must excite you, so the first two questions you must answer are:

  • What would you like to accomplish in your business this year?
  • What do you want your business to do for you?

3) What Does What You Want LOOK LIKE, FEEL LIKE, IN SPECIFIC DETAIL. Imagine yourself already obtaining what you want. Visualize your goal by seeing the result you want in your mind. Maybe draw it out or create a vision/dream board. Seeing your vision in your mind has the power to create a tremendous drive in you. Keep this goal around you at all times.

4) WHY Do You Want It? — Your goals either personal or business must be backed by a reason. In other words your WHY! WHY are you doing what you’re doing? Why do you want what you want? What is the goal? What is your Holy Cause & Purpose?  Your WHY has to be very strong and have a deep meaning to you.

You want to make sure that you didn’t get in this business for the wrong reason. Start asking yourself questions like: Why are you in this business? Is this my passion? Would I do this even if I didn’t get paid for it?

WHILE GAINING CLARITY, CHOOSE TO TELL THE TRUTH, BE AUTHENTIC AND WRITE IT OUT IN SPECIFIC DETAIL!

HERE ARE SOME QUESTIONS TO ASK YOURSELF TO HELP YOU GAIN CLARITY!

  1. What are your specific written down goals?
  2. What is one goal you would like to achieve in the next 90 days?
  3. How do you measure success in your business today?
  4. How much money do you want to make this year?
  5. What is your vision (your ideal) for 1 year and 5 years?
  6. Do you have a written down plan of attack that is thought out and simple to execute such as a 90 day (2 pages) action plan?

Examples; I introduce my business to 10 new people a day and I get 5 peoples contact information, I will get 100 new customers in the next 90 days, I am a triple Diamond by September 30th, I give back 2,000/month to the needy, I am a very determined, caring, inspiring leader who builds people up and inspires them to be all they were created to be,

WRITE OUT YOUR GOALS, DREAMS & INTENTIONS EVERY SINGLE DAY—AGAIN BE DESCRIPTIVE & SPECIFIC

When Writing out your goals – Ask: Am I Committed? Who would I need to be to achieve the goals I have? What skills, people and resources would I need to attain my goals? Make sure when you Write/Speak you do it in the first person…. “I”…..Write/Speak in the present tense….”I AM” and always use positive language!! Have daily goals and long term goals written down.

ASK YOURSELF

What would be the COST of not following through on my goals? What would be the COST of trying to achieve by Trial & Error? In other words reinventing the wheel and not following the system that’s already in place.

LASTLY, BE COMMITTED

When going after what you want, you must be 100% COMMITTED – When you ask yourself  HOW Committed am I on a scale of  2 to 10 — anything other than a 10 means nothing – It means you’re uncommitted.

  • So do what is required
  • Do what you say you’re going to do
  • Act powerfully INSPITE of feelings, emotions, moods, circumstances, etc.

Once you have CLARITY on what you want, where you’re going and why you want it, it will be hard for you to NOT be committed because you will be so excited to get up every day and shoot for your dreams and goals!! NOW GO MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!

Eating healthy is very hard to do in my opinion especially when you have a sweet tooth, which I occasionally have. Unfortunately the grocery stores make it very expensive to eat healthy and on top of that, even when you think it’s healthy it’s not, it’s usually filled with a ton of chemicals. 

Eating protein is huge when it comes to getting healthier and losing weight. Protein plays a very important role in the human body. The main function is building up, keeping up, and replacing tissues in your body. You could say protein is kind of the maintenance person keeping the body in tact. In fact, most muscles, organs and hormones are comprised of mainly protein. Your body uses the amino acids in protein to build lean muscle, which not only makes you stronger and more toned but also fries calories even when you’re not active. Protein is also responsible for making antibodies and hemoglobin which serve in delivering oxygen to your blood.

Here is an inexpensive, super easy, healthy snack that you will just fall in love with!! Healthy Protein Bars recipe with about 78g of protein per batch: 1 Cup Natural Peanut Butter and 2/3 Cup Honey melted down. Then add 1 Cup Oatmeal and 1 Scoop Chocolate ProFit Protein (available at http://www.beahealthyyou.com). Mix well and put in a pan and let it cool!! Yummy, healthy snack made in 5 minutes! Tastes almost like a no bake cookie but way healthier for you!!Healthy Protein Bars

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Greens?

Greens are an energizing, detoxifying, and alkalizing blend of 38 herbs and nutrient-rich superfoods that provides vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and enzymes you need for your best health. The nutrients found in Greens are at their highest naturally occurring, bioactive, bioavailable form to ensure maximum absorption by your body.

The natural blend of ingredients in Greens, including an acidity-fighting combination of magnesium and potassium, is designed to alkalize the body and restore pH balance. With restored alkalinity, your body your body experiences immune system health and increased energy. A cutting-edge probiotic helps you maintain that healthy balance by keeping your digestive system regular and toxins flowing out.

Raw fruits and vegetables are the best foods for combating acidity and restoring alkalinity in the body. Greens gives you the nutrients of 8+ servings of fruits and vegetables in every serving!

 

Why is Magnesium and Potassium important for alkalizing the body?

All fresh fruits and vegetables have important alkalizing benefits, but a diet of those highest in potassium is best for maintaining an alkaline, pH-balanced body. Each servings of Greens provides 260 mg of potassium in the form of potassium citrate, the strongest alkalizing agent found in citrus fruits. An acidic body is not only low in potassium, but likely low in magnesium as well, as magnesium is important for regulating your body’s potassium levels. When your body is unbalanced and overly acidic, it tries to counteract that acidity by releasing calcium and magnesium from the bones to promote an alkaline pH, which can lead to a magnesium deficiency within the body.

Greens’ alkalizing blend of potassium and magnesium helps to restore adequate supplies of both of these vital minerals that your body needs to maintain a healthy pH balance.

 

"Let Food Be Thy Medicine And Medicine Be Thy Food" Hippocrates

“Let Food Be Thy Medicine And Medicine Be Thy Food” Hippocrates

It’s super important to get your 8+ servings of fruits and veggies everyday! ”Stress, junk food, and fatty foods all cause an acidic environment and is a set-up for disease and aging.” There is compelling evidence that a diet rich in fruits and vegetables can lower the risk of heart disease and stroke. Greens will help alkalize the body. When your body is alkalized and balanced, it improves your immune system to help fight aging and many diseases. They also help the good bacteria in our body to fight infection.

Everyone knows they need more vegetables in their diets and leafy green ones are particularly good. Unfortunately, most of us still have problems getting one serving of greens a day, much less the recommended amounts. Here are some quick methods of eating more greens.

 

Tips to Start Eating More Greens

Green smoothies: Make up a regular fruit smoothie, with strawberries, bananas, papaya, etc. and then add a big handful of baby spinach. The smoothie will be a weird color, but it’s very healthy and with spinach you won’t even notice a change in taste. If you’re not a green fan, stay away from chard and other stronger tasting green food.

Pasta sauce: Next time you whip up spaghetti, add a cup or two of leafy greens to the tomato sauce. Blend before you serve and you’ll barely notice the extra protein and fiber.

Green eggs: Spinach, cabbage and lettuce all go very well with eggs. You can get away with nearly anything when it comes to scrambled eggs. Add some cilantro, spinach, or plenty of parsley to your eggs for an extra boost in taste and fiber.

Make a salad: Do you have a salad at every meal? If not, why not start whipping up a big salad at the beginning of the week and keeping it in the fridge for when you serve a meal. You won’t be tempted to skip because it’s already made. Add your favorite dressing and you’re good to go. For even more variety, use different types of lettuce, add in some spinach or even make a batch of coleslaw.

Find new recipes: There are hundreds of recipes that call for chard, kale or spinach. Try something new and you’ll probably find quite a few things that you enjoy.

It Works Greens: The Greens contains 38 herbs and nutrient-rich “super foods.” It’s like getting 8+ servings of fruits and vegetables. They help to alkalize, balance and detoxify the body to fight whatever comes your way. It’s a powder form and you take 2–4 scoops a day. You can mix it in juice or just water, it tastes that good! My kids love the GREENS!! You can get them at http://www.beahealthyyou.com.

Experiment: If you’ve always stuck to spinach, why not branch out a bit? Try some Chinese veggies. They tend not to be as dark green, but bok choi and the like are very good for you still. They also work very well in stir fry.

You can get more leafy greens into your diet with minimal effort. The benefits are tremendous. You’ll find that you have more energy, less sickness, less cravings, fewer mood swings and for women, less PMS.  The benefits are definitely worth making sure you get your 8+ fruits and veggies..

 

Have You Tried That Crazy Wrap Thing Yet?

I am sure you have been seeing and hearing about That Crazy Wrap Thing everywhere! It’s because It Works Global is growing very rapidly. We went from a $25 million dollar company in 2009 to a $500 million dollar company in 2013, to on our way to being a billion dollar brand this year! Why all the growth you ask, well I would have to say a lot of it is because we were featured at the Oscars and Emmys 3 times now, plus we were featured in Success From Home Magazine 3 times (which is found on news stands globally and in Barnes and Nobles), we have been featured on several news channels, and we were just featured in the Wall Street Journal!! Even though we are growing exponentially people are still very skeptical, which I can relate to because I was there once too and that is why I am writing this post. I want to give a little background on what this Crazy Wrap Thing is all about and answer some frequently asked questions. Hope this blog post helps some of you see the light about this amazing product because this company has changed my life!!! Here we go!

WHAT IS THAT CRAZY WRAP THING?
An EXCLUSIVE, herbal based body contouring wrap that TIGHTENS, TONES and FIRMS where applied to the skin. These wrap ingredients are known to minimize the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks too. Since your body is absorbing this cream that is tightening your skin, it’s essential to drink plenty of water. Hydration is key with this wrap. It is not water weight that you lose, the results are instant and permanently progressive.

HOW DO I APPLY THE WRAP?
It’s simple, so easy and designed to use at home. The wrap comes pre-packaged in a box of four. Take one wrap out of the package and apply the side with cream on it your stomach, thighs, arms, chin, neck, OR anywhere really, except don’t put it on your face we have a separate Facial wrap for that! Once you apply the wrap where you want it, rub all of the air bubbles out between your skin and the wrap; this helps the cream that is on the wrap to make better contact with your skin. Once you have done this, just use saran wrap, ace bandage or a tight-fitting garment to secure the wrap in place. Now relax, run errands, or anything else you would like to do for at least 45 minutes. You can do almost anything while wearing the wrap except you don’t want to sweat with it on because if you’re sweating that means the cream isn’t getting into the pores.

WHAT KIND OF RESULTS CAN I EXPECT WITH THE CRAZY WRAP THING?
You will see tighter, toner, firmer looking skin and many see a reduction in cellulite and stretch marks too. Remember a full treatment is the box of 4, wrapping the same area at least once a week. One box will last you a month. If you don’t see the results you had hoped for, it’s okay! You cannot expect to have your desired look in 45 minutes but this is a great start and you are well on your way to contouring your troubled area. Remember to drink water while wrapped and also over the next 72 hours as it continues to work that long even after you take it off. The more you wrap, the better your results will get.

HOW MUCH DO THE WRAPS COST?
$25 dollars per wrap if you purchase direct from a distributor. Although, there are other options that will help you save a ton of money!! You can purchase a box of four from the online store 2 different ways. As a retail customer a box of 4 is $99, OR you can check out as a wholesale loyal customer and get a box of four wraps for only $59!

DOES THE CRAZY WRAP THING RESULTS LAST?
The Crazy Wrap Thing helps to tighten tone and firm in a manner that produces lasting results. As is true with any weight loss or body contouring product, you can reverse the results you see for the applicator with poor eating habits and lack of healthy exercise.

WHAT WILL IT FEEL LIKE WHEN USING THE CRAZY WRAP THING?
While wearing the APPLICATOR you will experience a slight tingling cool, soothing sensation that lets you know instantly that the wrap is working. Some people may also feel a warm sensation, everybody’s body is different.

HOW LONG SHOULD I WEAR EACH WRAP?
You should wear each wrap for a minimum of 45 minutes. Because the applicator is a safe and naturally based product, it is safe to wear longer than 45 minutes. if desired. In fact, we’ve found that one of the easiest ways to use the applicator is to wear it all night long while you sleep. If it is your first time using that Crazy Wrap Thing, we recommend that you only leave it on 45 minutes to test your skin’s sensitivity to the natural active ingredients.

HOW OFTEN CAN I USE THE CRAZY WRAP THING?
Use one Applicator every 72 hours. The all-natural ingredients continue to work for 72 hours after you have applied it, so you may continue to see progressive results over this time period. Each wrap is only to be used once so discard after use.

CAN I SELL THESE CRAZY WRAP THINGS?
Yes! We are expanding and looking for distributors nationwide. The enrollment fee is only $99. and includes your business builder kit, marketing supplies, free training, and FOUR wraps. Earn monthly commissions from your online sales. Wrap someone on the spot and earn CASH instantly! Earn bonuses when you get your friends to sell with you! It’s that easy!!

I have been in Network Marketing now for about 4 years and the #1 problem in Network Marketing that I have learned is most people don’t have a big enough network to build a successful business. A lot of people come into Network Marketing very excited about their new journey. The problem that arises and arises very quickly with a lot of people is that their family and friends are not on board and they run out of people to talk to. I see this time and time again and when this happens what do a majority of them do? They QUIT. It’s very sad to see people quit so quickly but that’s what happens. Unfortunately a lot of people don’t look at this like a real business and they don’t realize it’s going to take time to build a clientele to have a successful business. The only way to build a clientele is by getting out there and making new friends and networking.

So now that we realize that’s what we have to do to grow a network marketing business the next question is where do we go to find these new friends to network with? Well below I have given you 50 different ways to network and make new friends! One tip I want to give you is remember this is a relationship building business so your first initial contact is not going to be you pitching your business, it’s going to be you introducing yourself and getting to know them better. The next step will be to find a creative way to stay in touch with them! I like to use Facebook to do that but whatever way works for you is great! Another thing I want you to remember is that this business takes time to build because it takes time to grow relationships. The better you can get at establishing a connection with someone, the faster the relationship will grow, which in turn means the faster your business will grow. Plant seeds daily, water those seeds, and wait for the harvest to grow!! Happy networking!

Do You Need to Detox Your Body?

Why We Need to Detox Our Body…

We keep ourselves clean on the outside but how many of us keep ourselves clean on the inside?
Many modern day natural healers believe that over 80% of chronic disease is caused in the colon, eventually leading to colon cancer. That is quite a staggering fact and worrying too.
A periodic detox method cleaning or cleansing program of the internal environment can help you feel refreshed and reduce the risk of potential problems brought on by an accumulation of toxins which can eventually make you quite ill. We are all regularly exposed to pollution from food additives, preservatives, heavy metals, (including drugs given to livestock) pesticide food, and chemicals in household products. This is why detoxification is so important.
The toxins can re-circulate in the body if the eliminatory functions are not working effectively…and fat-soluble toxins can be stored in fatty parts of the body for many years. A toxic environment in the body can result in a lowered immune system, causing excess free radical damage and can provide an ideal habitat for bad bacteria, parasites and ultimately disease. The accumulation of toxins can overwhelm even the strongest body and skin, resulting in some of the health problems:

Acne
Constipation
Allergies
Fatigue
Bad breath
Gastrointestinal disorders
Weight Issues
Skin disorders
Bloating
Headaches
Body odor
Hemorrhoids

It all sounds horrible doesn’t it? What is the answer? There are lots of answers honestly but I use It Works products! They help with removing toxins, help with weight loss and give my body a natural spring clean from it all…and help me really feel the difference! If you want more information in regards to the It Works Detox Program email me at ajockett@yahoo.com.

In addition, many people just don’t drink enough water, eat healthy foods or have a natural diet which is high in fiber, and this can often create irregular and infrequent bowel movements, potentially harming the colon and adding to the toxic load in the body. Eating fruits and vegetables along with drinking a good antioxidant drink will help with your fiber intake, and a green tea drink will also cleanse too.

Whether we want to believe it or not, eventually we all have to face the music and reality!
Whether we want to (like it or not) we regularly, as part of our daily lives, absorb more harmful chemicals and other toxins into our bodies. Even heavy metals don’t escape. The thing is that most of us are not aware of the harmful nature of them. Oblivious that they exist and yet we are surrounded by them in the foods we eat, products we use, unavoidable places we find ourselves in and even our own comfy homes etc. To thrive and survive in our world, YOU personally need to be prepared, plan for it, and have the know-how to get rid of toxic build-up within your own body and system.

Network Marketing is the business of the 21st Century. According to Wikipedia, network marketing is a way of doing business in which a sales force earns a commission not only for sales of products and services they personally generate, but also for the sales of others they recruit and bring into the business, which creates a downline of distributors and a hierarchy of multiple leveraged levels of compensation. A pyramid scheme is a non-sustainable business model that involves promising participants’ payment or services, primarily for enrolling other people into the scheme, rather than supplying any real investment or sale of products or services to the public

I have a lot of people ask me if It Works is one of those get rich pyramid schemes and honestly I chuckle every time. I always ask them well isn’t Wal-Mart set up like a pyramid? They have a CEO, Board of Chairman’s, each region has a Regional Vice President, each district has a District Manager and then there are Store Managers, Assistant Managers, Department Managers, and then you have the hourly positions. Each position is paid accordingly but NO one will ever make more than the TOP people.

You see in network marketing I can make more than the TOP people because I’m paid based on my efforts. So NO network marketing is no where near a get rich quick scheme nor is it a pyramid scheme, those are illegal. It’s a business model that allows average, ordinary, everyday people like myself, to invest a small amount of money, start a business, work hard and create a residual income that can be passed on to my kids, grandchildren, and so on.  This is what I posted this morning on Facebook “Everyone at some extent wants to be successful but the problem is they aren’t willing to put in the effort to succeed. Its crazy to me how people will work 40hrs a week, put there heart and soul into building someone else’s dream but quit on their own dream within a couple months. This is a business people, it takes time to grow, it’s not a get rich quick scheme!”  You have to take the time to learn the skills necessary to build a network marketing empire.

When your trying to understand network marketing think of a franchise, like McDonald’s for instance. McDonald’s is one of the largest fast food organizations in the world. They have more than 34,000 restaurants that serves more than 68 million people in 119 countries each day. About 85% of McDonald’s restaurants are owned and operated by independent business owners or contractors. Now if you owned the mother-ship corporation, you not only earn money by selling burgers, fries and shakes from the 15% of the restaurants you personally own and operate but you also earn a tiny percentage on all the sales made by the entire organization including the other 85% you do not own or operate. Meaning you are now earning a LEVERAGED/RESIDUAL income generated by the time, talent and energy put forth by the other business owners on your team.

Now there are a couple differences between a franchise and network marketing business. The 1st difference is the initial startup cost. For a franchise it could cost thousands and thousands of dollars, where network marketing companies usually charge $50-$500 to get your business started. The 2nd difference is the cost to have a building. Most network marketers work out of their home so they don’t have overhead costs, big utility bills, or employees like a franchise would. Thus allowing the average, ordinary, everyday person to start a business and become financially free!

Why I LOVE Network Marketing!

•I get to pick the people I want to work with!

•I can work from home part-time or full time it’s my choice, I pick my hours!

•I have freedom of time to do what I want, when I want!

•I have NO boss telling me what to do!

•I have the opportunity to literally set myself up for financial freedom!

•I am creating a residual income that will be passed on generation to generation.

7 Steps to Becoming A Network Marketing Professional

BOOK OF THE MONTH

 

What I have learned over the last 3 ½ years is a lot of people come into Network Marketing treating it like a hobby and not a real business. A lot of us have never done anything like this before and we come in expecting to be a professional at it right off the bat. What we forget is it takes certain skills to become a professional in any industry and network marketing is no different. We have to take the time to learn the skills necessary to be successful and that will take time, a few years’ time. Just like if you wanted to be a nurse or a doctor you have to go to school for many years to learn the skills necessary. With this business you get to learn the skills basically for free and get to make money along the way, but you have to invest the time to learn these certain skills and then teach them to your downline.

 

In the book Go Pro, Eric Worre, a Network Marketer for over 20 years, discusses that there are 3 categories of people in Network Marketing. The first is the Poser and those are the ones that come in hoping to get lucky by signing a few rockstars. The second is the Amateur and they focus on many different things like luck, timing, positioning, and shortcuts. The third type is the Professional and these are the people that realize that this is a career and that there are certain skills to be learned to build a large Network Marketing business and they invest the time into learning theses skills.

 

In this book Eric teaches the 7 fundamental skills to building your Network Marketing business. The first thing he teaches you is How to Find Prospects. Next lesson is on Inviting Prospects to your Product or Opportunity. The third skill is Presenting Your Product and Opportunity. The fourth skill is Following Up.

Self-education will make you a living

If you want to be successful in your MLM business, Personal Development is a MUST! From my experience a lot of people who start an MLM business have self-limiting beliefs, past baggage, and a poor image of themselves. This was me 3 years ago but I learned MLM is all about building relationships with people therefore it’s crucial that you get yourself right so that you can connect with other people in a meaningful way. Personal Development, MLM, Successful We are NOT born leaders so we must work on developing ourselves into the type of person that others want to DO or BE in business with.

Wikipedia says Personal development includes activities that improve awareness and identity, develop talents and potential, build human capital and facilitate employability, enhance quality of life and contribute to the realization of dreams and aspirations. For example, when you were born you didn’t come out of moms belly walking, right? You started by crawling, then standing and then you attempted to walk. You tried to walk many times but you kept falling over and over again until one day you got up and started walking. Over time you developed the skills necessary to learn how to walk, so from the time you were born you were personally developing.

There is an old saying that goes like this ‘practice makes perfect’, and that’s absolutely true, in any area of your life. If you want to be great at something, whether it be riding a bike, playing an instrument, writing a blog, public speaking, communicating, or becoming a leader in your MLM business, you need to practice the necessary skills in order to become successful. You must learn, you must fail, and you must try again until the skills are developed. Remember, developing these skills won’t happen overnight, it will take time and effort and that’s why you need to be on a 3-5 year plan with your MLM business.

Every TOP money earner in MLM understands and implements Personal Development so lets talk about what you can do to personally develop yourself.

1. Spend at least 15 minutes each day praying, meditating, or just having quiet time. This will allow you to get to know your real thoughts and what you truly believe about yourself. If you’re having self-limiting beliefs you first need to stop accepting these beliefs and allowing them to define you and second you need to reaffirm who God says you are and start confessing that out loud. It won’t be an easy task especially when some of these beliefs have been engrained in you since childhood but with consistent effort you will change your beliefs about who you were meant to be. Typically, WE are what stops us from being successful in MLM so it is extremely important to do this exercise everyday so you can start to transform your beliefs. Your mindset is your most important tool, so let’s get it right!

2. Read books or listen to audio books. Find out the areas you need to improve on the most and start studying on how to get better. Learn about the Network Marketing industry. Just like if you wanted to be a DR. you would have to go to college for about 8 years to learn the skills to become a DR. Same goes with MLM, you have to take the time to learn the skills and techniques necessary to become a successful network marketer. Find someone successful in network marketing and learn what they are doing and follow their lead.

3. Stay plugged in to ALL your company conference calls, trainings, and events. I can’t stress enough how important this is to the success of your MLM business and personal development. Staying plugged in will help you gain knowledge in the products and help you get acquainted with the company and their vision. It will also help build your belief level and help you develop the skills necessary to be successful in the MLM industry. So stay plugged in!

Personal Development is going to take time, patience, persistence, and consistent effort. If you want to have a successful MLM business make sure you are taking the time each day to learn and grow. Remember your building a business and that takes time, so keep learning, developing, and taking action and you will have success! The main reason people fail in this industry is they quit before they get started! Good Luck!

Until next time, have a great day!
