During a recent conversation with an entrepreneur in the network marketing industry, I felt the need to ask a question, "When you first began in the industry, what was the one thing that delayed your progress at becoming successful?" Several minutes went by during the process of answering my question but eventually an answer rose above that very powerful conversation. So what's the top reason beginner network marketers fail, drum roll please.................FEAR! I don't mean your typical fear of not becoming successful, but of success itself.
The answer came to me as an enormous sigh of relief. "Why" you ask? This is the same fear I and many other network marketers had once they had finished analyzing the amount of dedication and commitment that was going to be needed to reach their goal. Many entrepreneurs in network marketing and business in general, don't consciously think of the fact that once they have reached that level of success, now what? They are quick to let the thought of success stop them from becoming successful.
Everything came together for me with this quote from the great Tony Robbins, "You must get a big enough reason so that you have to succeed." Visualizing and believing in your goal will overcome this fear of success. If you have gone as far as burning the bridges behind you, then success will have no choice but to become the only result of your efforts. Find a way to get to the level you want to be in. If you're initial effort didn't work, find a way that WILL work. But your main goal is to remove this fear by keeping visualization, a mental movie if you'd prefer, of what success will feel for you.
Get into the ritual of improving your state of mind on a daily basis. I sincerely understand the fact that many of you live very busy lifestyles and to make the time needed to situate yourself in a quiet area and meditate on your goals might seem impossible. But if this fear is the single, most important thing for you to overcome in order to see yourself as a successful individual, then you must commit to yourself and make an effort to perform this mental exercise for at least 10-15 minutes each and every day.
• Mental Exercise - On a daily basis, find an area that is quiet, peaceful, and will allow you to concentrate on your thoughts. Take at least 10-15 minutes to perform this exercise. Visualize yourself as sitting in a movie theatre and watching yourself on screen. The only difference between the two is that the person on screen has reached their goal of becoming successful. Imagine yourself as the person you want to be on the screen and believe that you have already achieved your goal and have the success you've always wanted. Visualize yourself holding, touching and feeling that goal that you so much want and soon you it will become a reality. The mind has the ability to transmit this energy and life has a way of receiving it. You will soon realize that exactly what you ask of life, it will bring you.
I know that many of you might feel skeptical to meditating and don't believe that the mind is your key to being and receiving anything it desires. But let's leave the skepticism aside and commit to yourself that you will perform this exercise daily and you WILL begin to see results.
I Wish You All the Best in Life,
