When I first got started in network marketing I was nowhere near the top…
I was as bad as anyone could be when I first got started.
In fact, I was so bad that in the first two years I enrolled two people.
Those two people…
I PAID FOR THEM to join my downline.
Talk about pathetic, right?
I felt as if I was at the bottom 1% of all network marketers, however, I quickly realized that was not true.
If you’ve only enrolled one or two people…
You are already in the top 30%+!
Most people get into network marketing and before they have any success, they quit!
If you’ve been in network marketing, even if you haven’t had a lot of success and you’ve been doing it for a year or two, be proud of yourself that you haven’t given up.
So the first strategy to get to the top 1% in network marketing:
Don’t be too hard on yourself.
If you’re too hard on yourself then you’ll quit and NEVER have the chance to become successful.
The road to reaching the top 1% in network marketing is easy if…
Listen, this business is a marathon, not a sprint.
Long term consistency will always trump short-term intensity.
Yes, there are times when you want to blitz.
What’s a blitz?
Take a 90-day time of your life, maybe even once a year…
Put your head down and run. Hard.
…but you can’t rely on short term intensity because this is a long-term game.
Be patient with your results but impatient with your activity.
I should put that on a bumper sticker…
So, the second strategy to reaching the top 1% in network marketing is…
Are you willing to stick it out long enough to become great?
If you played guitar every single day for 10-20 years would you be good?
You’d be phenomenal!
What if you honed your skills, practiced selling, presenting, reaching out to people on social media, etc. every single day for a few years?
How great do you think you’d be?
As Malcolm Gladwell puts it in his book, Outliers, the most successful people in the world spend about 10,000 hours on their craft to be considered “World-Class” at what they do.
What do you think would happen if you spent 10,000 honing your skills?
Do you think you’d be in the top 1%?
Hell yeah, you would!
This brings me to my third strategy…
Adopt a healthy ego and belief system
Making a million dollars is EASY!
The hard thing?
Believing that it’s possible for you.
Once you begin to value your own self-worth, develop extreme confidence, and adopt a belief that anything is possible for you…
That’s when you realize that you have what it takes to get into the top 1%.
So, my third strategy to reach the top 1% in network marketing…
Have an unwavering belief system
Believe that you have what it takes…
Develop a routine of consistent personal development with consistent daily action…
…and understand that you are where you are right now and that’s okay.
Because you now know what it takes to make sh*t happen!
