People who are new to Network Marketing have many questions, but foremost among them is “is this really something I can do?” They want to know if they can succeed in Network Marketing.
Others who have been in Network Marketing for awhile may ask the same question. “Can I succeed in Network Marketing?” The sad truth is that 95% of Network Marketers out there don’t succeed. They quit.
By answering some very important questions, you can determine if you can, indeed, succeed in Network Marketing.
#1 Am I willing to take responsibility for my life? If you want to succeed in Network Marketing, you must be willing to take responsibility for your life. You realize that you care more than anyone about your life, and you are determined to life your life the way you want. Rather than waiting for someone or something to come along to make you successful, you understand that you are responsible fore creating your own success.
#2 Am I willing to make sacrifices to get to where I want to be? Everything good in life comes at a sacrifice. Olympic athletes sacrifice leisure time in order to practice enough to be in top physical and mental condition to compete. It’s no different in Network Marketing. Are you willing to re-prioritize to make time for your business? Are you willing to dedicate time you used to waste with TV and other non-essentials? Do you have hobbies you are willing to put aside in order to dedicate time to achieving your goals?
#3 Do I have a mentor? The dictionary defines “mentor” as a wise and trusted counselor or teacher. Doesn’t it make sense that somebody who fits that description would be incredibly helpful for you to follow as you become successful? It’s important to find a mentor–someone who has already achieved what you want to do and who can teach you to get to where you want to be.
#4 Do I have a system is duplicable? In Network Marketing, you succeed when you leverage your efforts with the efforts of those on your team. If you truly want to be successful, you must have a system that is duplicable. A system you can teach your organization to use so that they can be successful as well. If you don’t have a system that your teammates can duplicate, you will never truly achieve the residual income that is available to successful Network Marketers.
