Answer: They can, and DO, all the time.
I got in a conversation recently with someone who asked that question, and they were convinced beyond my words that MLM simply is something that people cannot do.
And they walked off still thinking that way. Sad.
But it is a really good question, and I believe needs to be addressed from a point of reality and truth, not hype and promises. It is so true that most folks don’t succeed in network marketing, and the reason why is one, that they don’t want to hear, don’t want to believe and don’t want to deal with.
The MLM Leadership Factor.
Leadership is about telling folks what needs to be said, not what they want to hear. And sometimes leaders in this business can be outcasts because they stand up for the brutal truth, not some candy coated platitude that is more for tickling the ears then changing a life.
I get emails a lot about how my writings are too blount and brutal and I need to lighten up.
Get over it. The truth needs to be told in this industry, and until folks can get a grasp on it, they will never be successful nor rich. What is the answer to the question?
You may or not believe it. But you are struggling and failing in this Network Marketing business:
Because you have chosen to do so.
Period. That’s it.
Nothing more. And I can hear the “you don’t understands” now coming off my computer screen, and they echo throughout the industry. The “Excuse Brigade” is now in action again, and clinging to their excuses like a vine to a pole, like odor to garbage.
And that is all their excuses are: Garbage. Let me explain.
It takes a certain amount of work, activity, belief, energy, education and relentless pursuit to create any success of any kind in any endeavor. .All Network Marketing Leaders know this.
And luck has a way of showing up when you have chosen to engage all of the above effectively.
Let me ask you a few questions. And for once in this business, look at yourself and answer them brutally honest.
