Truth/Enemy #2 Attrition in Network Marketing

“You don’t need everyone, you just need the ones who stay!”

I want to start this post off with that phrase because that’s where the power in this message lives.

Today’s video is about attrition in network marketing and how, if you embrace it it can become a source of power but if you resist it it can and usually does become an enemy of success.

Let’s just lay the truth out , attrition in network marketing IS going to happen. In fact, it’s part of the process of success in network marketing.

Not everyone can or even should do network marketing. The world needs everyone to operate. We need farmers, construction workers, teachers, doctors, technology professionals, etc.

And even though I believe it’s the best financial vehicle on the planet, it’s not for everyone. Some people have immense love for their profession or business or job and it has nothing to do with network marketing.

Attrition in network marketing is like a filtering system. People join, check it out, get a feel for it, and either take the bull by the horns and run with it or quit for as many reason as you can count. Some because they’re unrealistic dreamers, others because it’s just not their thing and they’d rather be doing something different.

Some even know that they may very well be sacrificing a live of freedom and passive wealth but still quit.

And when you’re new to the industry it can be very confusing, incredibly frustrating, and almost deflating to the point you start to get pissed off at people for quitting.

But that’s the most dangerous thing you can do for your success. You have to learn to embrace attrition in network marketing by understanding you don’t need everyone to create massive success, you only need the ones who stay.

I’m not 100% sure if these numbers are accurate but I love to recall the Amway story when I talk about or think about attrition in network marketing.

Rich DeVos and Jay Van Andel, co-founders of Amway, enrolled something like 500 people and only 495 stayed (Don’t’ quote me on those numbers).

That means that they dealt with some serious attrition in network marketing and that only about 5 people created the $10 Billion dollar empire that is Amway!

I know it can be really rough and frustrating, especially when you are first starting out and don’t have a ton of people on your team yet but you MUST remember, you don’t need everyone, you only need the ones who stay!

Embrace attrition in network marketing as a filter that leaves only the best stuff behind and it will become an asset instead of an enemy.

Dealing With Rejection in Network Marketing – Enemy #1

Dealing With Rejection in Network Marketing – Enemy #1

An interesting thing happens to you as push yourself beyond your comfort zone.

Once you realize that you’re no longer in your comfort zone and you accept that you’re not getting out of this new place outside your comfort zone anytime soon, your mind starts searching, even scrambling for ways to make it “OK”.

And as your mind starts searching for ways to make it “OK” you tap into archived wisdom, knowledge, strength, motivation, and inspiration that’s been kind of collecting metaphorical dust so to speak.

And on day 2 of my journey up Kilimanjaro, I was tapping into some pretty powerful personal lessons.

So I decided to record a special training series on the 4 truths or what you might call the 4 enemies of network marketing.

Obviously it makes sense that it’s a 4 part series and this is part 1.

The 4 Truths or “Enemies: of Network Marketing: (NOTE: When I say enemies, I’m not referring to things you want to stay away from at all. In fact, these truths only become enemies because people TRY to avoid them instead of embracing them)

1. Dealing with rejection in network marketing
2. COMING SOON
3. COMING SOON
4. COMING SOON

The first truth/enemy of network marketing = Dealing With Rejection in Network Marketing (Rejection is the #1 fear in the world)

So here’s the truth – In order to have huge success, you’re going to have to get rejected… A LOT!

And I’m not going to sugar coat it, dealing with rejection in network marketing is going to hurt, it hurts for everyone. When I got started I would only show the business to people I thought would enroll and do everything I could to avoid dealing with rejection in network marketing.

Dealing with rejection in network marketing is a different kind of fear for many people because it’s almost as if someone is telling you your dreams are destined to fail when in reality, just because someone else won’t do it, doesn’t mean that you can’t do it!

But we try at all cost to avoid dealing with rejection in network marketing and that’s exactly how and why this becomes an enemy.

See, if you try to avoid rejection or more specifically, dealing with rejection in network marketing you’re going to fail because you’re not going to show anybody your opportunity!

You’ve gotta be willing to just suck it up. Because in order to win and win big, you MUST go through the numbers. And that means… wait for it…

Dealing with rejection in network marketing because it’s 100% guaranteed that you WILL get rejected.

Don’t look at it as something negative, look at it for what it really is.

Just something that isn’t for you. Think of a waiter or waitress.

When they ask you if they want dessert and say say no, does that mean that:

Restaurants don’t work?
Desserts are a scam?
The server is a really bad server?

NO! It doesn’t mean any of that! That’s all ridiculous.

All it means is that you don’t want dessert.

You gotta look at your network marketing company as “dessert for life” and not everyone wants dessert for life.

I look at it this way. The more rejection I go through, the better the life I get to live…

Go after “enemy” #1, embrace “enemy” #1 go out and get rejected… A LOT! :-)

Live Life Fully

Live life fully. Make life an adventure…

What feeling do you get as you watch this video? What thoughts run through your mind?

Now ask yourself, why… Why do you feel the way you feel as you watch these people living life?

It’s just some random clips of people living life but, they’re living life fully! They are making their lives an adventure. They are doing stuff instead of thinking about doing stuff or talking about doing stuff.

Chances are, you see their passion as they display what it means to live life fully. It doesn’t really matter what it is and will be different from person to person but there ARE some things you want to DO. There are some things you want to LIVE that help you live life fully.

Imagine if I shared a video of about 40 or so people sitting on the couch thinking about doing stuff or talking about doing stuff. How inspiring would that be? How much of a fire or passion would that ignite in your soul? How invigorating would that be?

I think you kind of get the point. You’re not going to be able to live life fully being a couch potato who thinks and alks about doing stuff…

As you watch these people doing stuff to live life fully, you notice a couple things. They’re having fun, they’re pushing their one limits, they’re taking risks, they’re making their life an adventure as they live life fully.

Do they fail? Of course they do. They’re are probably hundreds of takes where they didn’t nail the landing or make the shot.

But when you look at them, you’ll see something that you see in all people who live life fully, you’ll notice that they are actively engaged in their own life and they make their lives an adventure.

Plus, you’ll notice a lot more beaming smiles on people who live life fully.

Now, does this mean that you have to go jump off cliffs and do crazy adrenaline rush producing things like that? Maybe, maybe not. That’s for you to decide.

But what I want to point out here is this…

You have the opportunity to take a look at your life every single day and decide if you live life fully, whatever that means to you.

And the point of today’s Motivational Monday is just that, actively live life fully, don’t do time!

And of course…

Make Life An Adventure!

Day 1 Kilimanjaro – Decide To Win

Decide To Win Before You Play The Game…

Well here we go! It’s day 1 of the Kilimanjaro adventure!

I’m really excited to get going and we’ve got a pretty demanding journey ahead of us.

About 4,000 feet up in about 6 hours today. Then a then the next day we’ll walk another few hours then summit day we end up walking about 16 hours.

As we start the track today, I’m just thinking about being prepared for the journey. And part of being prepared is knowing that it’s going to be a long journey, it’s going to challenging, but going anyway!

And here’s the key message for today. I’m saying this before I get to the top. I can tell ya beyond a shadow of a doubt that I will make it to the summit. Even though I heard that half the people who attempt this don’t make it, I know I will.

Why?

Because I prepared. I know it’s going to be a journey. I know there’s going to be some pain. I know I’m going to get tired and sore but I’m prepared for the journey.

And mainly, because all things being equal, I decide to win before I ever step one foot on the field. I decide to win before I play the game. I decide to win no matter what is thrown at me.

What does it mean to “be prepared”? What do you get prepared for? The only answer that works here is, it doesn’t matter. You decide to win with total faith and total conviction and you decide that anything that comes up, any obstacle, any challenge, any pain, any anything will not stop you because you decide to win before you take one step on the journey.

And the same applies to network marketing, starting a business, or any entrepreneurial career.

So many people fail because they think it’s going to be easy and when they find out it’s not, they quit.

They go in unprepared with false expectations. Someone told them it would be easy money, they believed it, and they failed because of it.

Think about this mountain…

If everyone was telling me it was as easy as a walk in the park on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, I wouldn’t have trained, I wouldn’t have busted my butt getting ready for what waits on this journey, and I would not have been mentally, physically, or emotionally prepared for it and…

I would have failed before I even got on the plane to get here.

But when you decide to win with 100% faith and conviction, you do what it takes to win, without exception.

And that’s the level of confidence I want for you on your journey, your track, your climb.

Decide to win and a magical thing happens, you DO win!

Make Life An Adventure!

Motivation In Under A Minute!

Motivation in less than one minute!

There are a lot of videos that spark motivation. Some are powerful and some create an internal motivation to think differently about life.

There are also a lot of great sayings and quotes that create motivation.

So for this edition of Motivational Monday I wanted to string together some quotes to tell a quick story of how success is created with quotes and sayings and I wanted to do it in less than one minute.

Here is the motivation or meaning behind each quote:

Your future is created by what you do today…

The results of the choices and actions you take today, good to bad, are not always experienced today. They are the stepping stones that pave where you are going…

You are the creator of your own destiny…

The moment you realize that you and you alone are the one who decides what your destiny will be, is the moment you become empowered to create it! No one else can choose what you create, only you can choose that and that’s what creates your destiny.

Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference…

Winston Churchill made it simple to understand. Your attitude about anything is the defining factor on whether that thing is there to serve you in your success or if that thing has the power to stop you. Your attitude about anything is everything!

Be someone that makes you happy…

Don’t look to others to create your happiness, become the person you’d be happy to be around! Be someone you’d be proud to call a friend. Be someone you’d be honored to admire.

Use your imagination…

Life is full of opportunity. And the more you can stretch your imagination about what something could be, the better chance you have at realizing the full potential of every opportunity that crosses your path!

The best dreams happen when you’re awake…

The greatest ideas, insights, inspiration and motivation come from the dreams you have when you’re awake, alive, energized, and have clarity!

You are only confined by the walls you build yourself…

This is a big one! The stories you tell yourself about why you can or what you can’t are the ONLY things stopping your or opening the path to your success. And the key message here is, YOU write the stories that govern your life!

When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe then you’ll be successful…

You have to have a relentless, undying, unstoppable desire for success. It’s not always a battle but when it is, you have to ready to fight for every inch. You have to be willing to whatever it takes with the same conviction and commitment you’d have if you were under water trying to get to the surface to take a breath! When you have that kind of motivation, you already have success because nothing will stop you.

Remember that guy who gave up? Neither does anyone else…

Success is not reserved for the people who quit, it’s reserved for the people who never give up! (And if you have the kind of motivation as you would from the last quote, you won’t ever give up so it all kind of ties together).

Work hard, dream big…

Success requires hard work and big dreams crate the motivation needed to do the work!

A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor…

It’s not a clean, perfectly defined process. The path to success has messy, ugly, scary, and risky sections. But it’s those sections that forge the courage, strength, wisdom, and skill required to navigate the next section of the path.

Success is a journey, not a destination…

If you look at it like when I achieve X I’ll be Y you don’t understand success yet. It’s the journey that brings you joy. It’s the journey that brings you happiness. It’s the journey that creates the adventure! Once you reach the destination, if there is no other journey, it’s over!

Make life an adventure!

What is life other than one big giant adventure? When you can approach life with the perspective of it being a big giant epic adventure and your job is to always find ways to add to and enhance the adventure, you win in my book!

So there is it, motivation in under a minute! Hope you liked it and it brought some value to your life.

Make Life An Adventure!

How To Get Over The Fear of Rejection

How To Get Over The Fear of Rejection

One of the reasons why I struggled so long in network marketing was because I would only show the business to people I was pretty certain would enroll.

And I did this because I had the biggest fear in the world, the fear of rejection!

A lot of people say public speaking is the #1 fear in the world but it’s not. The fear of rejection is the biggest fear in the world.

And I was afraid of what people would say. If I didn’t think they’d get excited about it and enroll, I just would show them because that way, I didn’t have to face my fear of rejection.

See how that works? I had a massive fear of rejection, I only showed my opportunity to people I thought wouldn’t reject it, and it cut my chances of any kind of success down to about ZERO!

I made the lists. My up-line mentors would say hey make a list of everyone you know and I’d do that, but then I’d only show a handful of people because of that fear of rejection.

And that approach leads to one thing… failure!

So here’s how to get over the fear of rejection. Here’s what I want you to do.

Make the list! Show your opportunity to EVERYONE regardless of your opinion on whether they will sign up or not. (I promise you, people WILL surprise you)

DO NOT get attached to the outcome. No emotional attachment. You have one job, just educate them on what you’re doing.

That was my big breakthrough and when I really started to get over the fear of rejection.

So this is your homework…

Show your opportunity to at least 1 person in the next 24 to 48 hours who you know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, they will never enroll in your opportunity!

You have to know that they are going to reject you.

And here’s why I want you to do this.

I want you to desensitize yourself from the “no” or the fear of rejection. I want you to experience it so that you realize, it’s not as bad as you think! Your fear of rejection is WAY bigger in your mind than anywhere else.

In fact, a lot of times the people who you know will never do it, refer you to someone who will!

So that’s your homework, go show your business to at leaf one person you know will never join, experience the actual reality of what the fear of rejection looks and feels like, and become aware that it’s FAR worse in your mind than it is in reality…

Make Life An Adventure!

Chase Your Dreams As If You Intend On Catching Them!

Chase Your Dreams With Everything In You!

I’m sitting in the lounge waiting to board my flight to Mt. Kilimanjaro recording a couple videos because…

A long time ago, in a mindset far far away… I put climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro on my bucket list.

And to be honest, at that time, I wasn’t really sure that those types of things were just fantasies. It seemed so unreachable to me.

At the time I put that on my list, I hadn’t checked hardly anything off. My life was, well, I don’t want to call it insignificant but I hadn’t done anything all that memorable in my life. So it was hard to even image that something like that was possible for me.

And today, as I’m sitting here getting ready finally on my way after ALL of these years of wanting to do this, I’m feeling incredibly blessed and incredibly fortunate for not only this but for everything!

I’ve been able to check off so many things on my bucket list, I have a beautiful family that I’m absolutely so in love with and totally adore.

And to be able to have life be such an amazing adventure and have such an amazing family is a huge blessing.

But I gotta tell ya, over the course of the journey, there were so many times in my entrepreneurial career where, there were a lot of heartaches and a lot of set backs.

There were a lot times where I doubted myself in a big way, I doubted my abilities, and my self worth.

There were times I did things I wasn’t proud of, and people did crappy things to me.

Massive debt, massive doubt, massive uncertainty…

But here’s the thing, and this is the most valuable characteristic you can have when it comes to creating success in life…

You just find a way, any way, to keep pushing forward! Chase your dreams as if your life depended on it! In fact, chase your dreams as if you intend on catching them!

There were times when I thought, “Maybe I should just go do what the 98% of the world does and go the easy route where you don’t chase your dreams”…

But deep down in my heart, I knew I wouldn’t be happy being a 98%er. And I have to thank God for
giving me the courage to keep going.

And my message to you is, if you look deep down in your heart, you gotta know you’re meant for more! You gotta low that you MUST chase your dreams.

You gotta know that it’s worth going through the struggle. Whatever you have to go through, it’s worth it! You just gotta keep pushing and chase your dreams with everything in you as if your life depends on it because, it does…

Be Willing To Work

You have to be willing to work!

What a great insight to the mindset required to create success.

People ask me why I spend 3 hours traveling to do presentations for a small handful of people after I’ve reached the level of success I have.

Well, this video pretty much nails it!

“You have to be willing to get the shots that no one else is willing to fight for!” You MUST be willing to work.

There’s a bunch of quotes about being willing to work but in general, this sums it up:

“You have to be willing to do the things others won’t to get what others don’t”.

And it doesn’t matter how successful you become, this ALWAYS applies and the second you lose that kind of mentality, your success starts to slowly fade away and your momentum starts to slowly slow down.

You need to be willing to work when no one else is willing to work.

Of course there is always that element of balance to achieve but the general mindset of being willing to do what others won’t to have what others don’t is the most simplistic core principle of success.

It can be ghetto, ugly, sloppy, etc and still be successful because if no one else was willing to do it, you win by default!

Adopt that mindset, be willing to work, and you’re almost guaranteed to achieve success!

Prepare For Success – “Chance Favors The Prepared Mind”

Prepare for Success to Avoid Failure

We’ve all heard that not taking the time or effort to prepare for success is really preparing for failure.

And as I’m sitting here in the airport waiting to board my flight to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, an old quote I heard years ago popped into my mind.

“Chance favors the prepared mind…” from Louis Pasteur.

So what does that mean?

Well, obviously the way to prepare for success to climb the mountain is through a lot of physical training and endurance training.

To prepare for success physically is vitally important and it’s a required action in order to have any chance of success on your climb.

But there’s more to it than that. You must also prepare for success mentally.

Just like in every aspect of life, you’ll have opportunities come up or “chances” to make a move and if you haven’t take the time to prepare for success mentally, things like fear, self doubt, uncertainty, etc can and usually do stop you from taking action when the chance to create success presents itself.

To truly prepare for success means preparing your mind and beaching the person you need to be in order to take action without hesitation when opportunities present themselves to you.

So how do you prepare for success in terms of your mind?

It’s easy. You constantly feed your mind knowledge, inspiration, motivation, possibility, and wisdom.

For example, watch all of my videos. Every single one of them. Why? Because there is no “one thing” that does it all. You’ll get pieces of the puzzle in each piece of information. You get little nuggets of gold each time you watch a video, read a book, go to a seminar, listen to a speaker, etc.

It doesn’t matter how many times you’ve read it, seen it, watched, or heard it, each time there will be a new little nugget of valuable mental fuel for you to use.

So remember that chances and opportunities will always show up, the only question is, are you going to be prepared to take action on them without hesitation when they are presented to you?
