Six Figure MLM and The Employee Mindset

I was recently asked why some people take the steps to take their network marketing business seriously and some don't.

That's a question that could launch a thousand ships and win the Nobel prize if one could produce the answer.

I guess it goes to show that the 80/20 rule is alive and well. Why won't/don't most people follow the success system that is in place and can produce what they want?

Well, I believe it is because too many people have made MLM, Network Marketing, Direct Sales, Mail Order and most business that can be run from home sound WAY easier than it really is.So, people believe they are buying a lottery ticket and when they don't "cash in" that first week, they are gone, looking for the next fake promise.

I have people who call me about my business tell me that they want to earn a 6 figure income.

That is great, and it can be done.My first question to them is - Have you ever earned 6 figures before?

The answer is almost always no.So, what will make this endeavor different for them? What will make a business of their own instantly generate that type of income? OR what makes them think that it will?

Especially if they are coming from an employee mindset where they don't want to spend money on anything, and yet they want to earn that type of money. Is it possible?

It is highly doubtful and I won’t say that it can't happen, but most likely, it won't.You buy a McDonald's (at $1 mil plus a pop) and can't make a six figure income even within 5 years in most cases, so why would this be different?

Those who can shift to an employer/business owner mindset are the ones who will take the right action, invest where investment is needed and reap the rewards.

The rest will jump from one program to the next wondering why it isn't working.

You and I can not change that. It's a decision each person must make for his/herself and follow through with commitment.

Simple as that and the greatest challenge that we face, all at the same time.

EXPECT Success!
