Without realizing it, I understood the secrets to winning with an MLM business opportunity at the age of 5.
I’ve been an entrepreneur my whole life.
I’ve wanted to be rich ever since I can remember and I started my first business at the age of 5.
When I was a kid we lived in a small country town. I would bake scones and take them down to the end of our driveway and try to sell them. Our road saw about ten vehicles a day – on a busy day. I was learning about traffic at a very young age.
I figured those weary travellers would be hungry by the time they got to my bend in the road and I figured I could get half of them to stop.
As far as the law of averages went I did OK. Two cars a day would stop, that’s a 20% success rate.
By the time I was 12 I had $5,000 in the bank.
Now that wasn’t just from selling scones.
I banked ALL my pocket money, which back then started out at 20c/week and then went up to 50c/week. I mowed lawns for $1, collected pine cones for 50c/bag, did chores and my Granny would give me a shiny 50c piece every time I saw her.
Today as I look back on my younger self I realize that at the age of 5 I understood one of the secrets to winning with an MLM business opportunity.
I had an overpowering vision that I wanted to be rich.
Not so I could have toys or the latest fashion. I wanted to be rich so I could take care of my family one day. I figured if I had a lot of money we’d always be fine.
I’ve been an entrepreneur in many fields since then, and always riding in the back of my mind is my VISION of wanting to be able to provide for those I love.
And to be extraordinarily successful with your MLM business opportunity you must have a vision.
And it can’t just be something vague – it has to be COMPELLING. It must DRIVE you to push yourself harder than you’ve ever pushed yourself before.
Because there will be setbacks. That’s inevitable for any entrepreneur in any business venture whether it be an MLM business opportunity or something else.
When the setbacks hit you, it will only be your compelling vision that propels you onwards and upwards.
You have to LOVE what you do, with a PASSION!
How the heck are you ever going to get yourself out of bed in the morning if you don’t love what you do? Whether it’s your MLM business opportunity or your J-O-B, you’ve got to love what you do! Otherwise, what’s the point???
I remember when I was doing something that in the end I detested; I would wake up in the morning full of dread, pull the covers over my head and just wish that the day was over.
And yet on the weekends I would wake up and bound out of bed with unbridled joy. I hated what I was doing. With a passion.
How incredibly soul destroying is it to see so many of us doing jobs that we absolutely detest, just so we can put food on the table? It’s just tragic.
If you don’t love your MLM business opportunity, you WILL fail. No doubt about it. You won’t stick to it. When it all gets too much it will be so easy to quit.
Winners NEVER quit – and quitters NEVER win.
I found this video that I believe is so appropriate for this moment … if you are struggling with belief … then you need to watch this now.
You will never build a successful, sustainable MLM business opportunity if you don’t have integrity.
Insincerity reeks like pungent manure.
People follow leaders who have integrity. Those who are honest, sincere, ethical and decent are the only ones who are extraordinarily successful with their MLM business opportunity.
The vulnerable masses are drawn to this industry daily on the promises of wealth beyond their wildest dreams. How easy it is to deceive and manipulate those desperately wanting to be rich.
An entrepreneur who shows integrity and paves the way for others to follow in their footsteps will reach the heralded heights of this industry.
Do you recall the story, “Three Feet From Gold” in Napoleon Hill’s Think & Grow Rich?
In the mid-1800’s a gold prospector quit, three feet from gold. He sold his drilling equipment to a junk man for a few hundred dollars and the junk man took this drilling equipment, moved it three feet and struck MILLIONS!
And funnily enough, that’s how it is in the MLM industry.
97% who get started with an MLM business opportunity quit. And many quit three feet from gold.
You can’t succeed in ANYTHING if you QUIT!
According to analysis by Mark and Rene Reid Yarnell, authors of Your First Year In Network Marketing, “95% of those who survive ten years in network marketing become wealthy beyond their wildest expectations.”
So in conclusion, if you want to be rich in this industry, “The 4 Secrets To Winning With Your MLM Business Opportunity” comes down to this:
1) You HAVE to have a compelling VISION that drives you through the hard times
2) You HAVE to be PASSIONATE about what you’re doing otherwise the hard work you need to put in to be successful will just be a grind and you may as well go back to your J-O-B.
3) You HAVE to have unwavering INTEGRITY. People are counting on YOU.
4) You HAVE to have PERSERVERANCE. Anything worth having is worth working for. Never, ever, EVER quit. If you do, you’ll never know how close you came to winning.
I wish you all the best on your journey, and no matter what you do – NEVER QUIT ON YOUR MLM BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY! NEVER!
We look forward to seeing you at the top.
