There are 6 key beliefs that separate top income earners in network marketing / MLM from those who struggle in this business.
Here they are:
#1 – Belief in the MLM / Network Marketing Industry
The first belief that you must have to be successful in this industry is a high belief in the industry itself being a solid, realistic and effective way for ordinary people to make money and for companies to distribute their products.
If you have hangups, doubts and fears about the MLM industry itself, it will be difficult to promote your product and/or opportunity to others.
To be successful as an MLM / Network Marketer you have to always be building your belief in this industry.
Constantly be on the lookout for resources such as books, videos, reports, etc. which speak positively and highly of this industry and stay away from the naysayers and skeptics who are too ignorant to even understand the difference between a legitimate network marketing opportunity and a pyramid scheme.
#2 – Belief in the Company You’re In
If you’re going to succeed you need to have a high level of belief in the company that you’re a part of and what it stands for.
If you can’t get excited about the company you’re promoting it will be hard for you to succeed.
You must have a high belief in the mission and the culture of the company you’re promoting.
To build this belief attend live events, listen to update calls and watch training materials which share information about the company and it’s accomplishments.
#3 – Belief in the Leadership of the Company
The next thing you must have a high belief in is the leadership behind the company you’re a part of.
Try to get to know who the leadership in the company is, and get to know them a bit and WHY they are passionate about the company they are leading / running.
Again, you can learn a lot about your leadership by attending live events, online hangouts, update calls and by watching company produced training videos and materials.
#4 – Belief in the Product
You must also believe in the products or services you are selling.
I’ve been approached by many people with MLM opportunities that were pretty exciting, but I didn’t believe in their products and so I didn’t join.
Why? Well, because if you can’t believe in the products you’re selling inside an MLM company, it will be virtually impossible to be ultra successful in the company.
And really the ONLY way to build your belief in the products is to firstly OWN the products you’re selling and to actually USE them in your life, and secondly to be constantly attending events and trainings where you are “sold” on the products that your company is promoting.
You MUST understand the benefits of your products, you must understand how your products are different and better than other similar products and what makes them unique.
Make it a point to always be getting better at understanding the products you’re promoting.
Also, studying testimonials from other people who have used the company’s products and have achieved success with them will help to build your belief.
#5 – Belief in the Compensation Plan
The next thing you have to believe in is your company’s compensation plan.
Most new MLM / Network Marketers make the mistake of not taking the time to understand their company’s compensation plan.
Their attitude is usually one of “Oh well, I don’t really care…I’ll figure it out once I’m making a lot of money…” and that is a mistake.
You MUST at least understand the basics of the compensation plan of your company and set aside time in your schedule to go through the company’s training resources which teach you how the compensation plan works.
Don’t assume you understand it just because you’ve seen something similar before.
Really take the time to understand it and understand the benefits of it.
Each compensation plan has it’s advantages and disadvantages, and if you understand how your company’s compensation pan works you can build and structure your business in such a way so as to maximize your profits and the growth of your business.
And finally, to be successful in the MLM industry you must also have a…
#6 – Belief in Yourself
Belief in yourself and your ability to succeed is probably THE most important of the 6 core beliefs you must have in this industry.
To build your belief in yourself get on a personal development program, reading the RIGHT books and listening to the RIGHT audios on a daily basis.
The world out there is NOT friendly to the entrepreneurial spirit. People around you will most likely try to tear you down, scare you and instill fear into your plans.
They THINK that they are doing you a favor by protecting you from making some sort of mistake, but all that their negativity will do is lower you belief in yourself.
To counteract this negativity and fear you MUST plug into reading the right books and listening to the right audios.
If you don’t know which books to read, I would start with this list of books here.
If you want to know which audios to listen to I would highly recommend the Inner Circle audios which you can find here.
