Planning for success in network marketing / MLM requires both mental and physical action. The physical action includes getting organized, contacting prospects, making presentations, that sort of thing. The mental action involves working on your beliefs and preparing yourself to face the challenges that lie ahead.
To be successful in network marketing, there are five key things you must believe.
1st, you must believe and have faith in network marketing as your vehicle to financial success. You must feel deep down that this is a legitimate and powerful way to make money, so much so that you can’t wait to tell others about it.
2nd, you need to understand that some of the worst scams will call themselves “network marketing” or “MLM” in an effort to look legitimate. You must know that these scams are not a true reflection of what network marketing really is, and understand the difference.
3rd, you must believe in your products and the company behind the products. Do you believe your products are excellent and offer a great value? You should be your own best customer – if you aren’t, how can you tell others how great they are?
4th, you have to believe in other people. You should feel that your upline is on your team and solidly behind you. Your must believe that each and every one of your downline associates is potentially a future leader in your company. When they call on you for help, they deserve your time and support.
5th, you must believe in yourself. You must know in your heart that you are in the right business. You must have reasons for doing your business, goals for achievement, and the deep internal belief that you can make it happen.
