Are You "Minding" Your MLM Business

Feb 28, 2008
The "art" of running a business requires some business basics, some common sense and more than ANYTHING, the right mental mindset. All too often, especially in Network Marketing, excited new distributors get bogged down in the "how-to's" of Network Marketing. They focus on the right script, the right Email Campaign, the right answers to all of the questions, the right ad to run, etc.

Too little time is spent where it really counts - developing the competitive mental edge. How many times have you heard -

"What the mind can conceive, and believe, it can achieve! This is a well known phrase because it is true." The secret to success in business, and more importantly in life, is to set your mind to something. Choose what it is that you want. Focus on that (instead of what you DON'T want) and believe it, and you WILL achieve it.

It's really all about getting clear on what you want, and putting that thought at the forefront as often as possible and imagining yourself already in possession of what it is you want.

In his book, "The Science of Getting Rich" Wallace D. Wattles says -

"THOUGHT is the only power which can produce tangible riches from the Formless Substance. The stuff from which all things are made is a substance which thinks, and a thought of form in this substance produces the form."

Every thought of form, held in thinking Substance, causes the creation of the form, but always, or at least generally, along lines of growth and action already established. The thought of a house of a certain construction, if it were impressed upon Formless Substance, might not cause the instant formation, of the house; but it would cause the turning of creative energies already working in trade and commerce into such channels as to result in the speedy building of the house.

And if there were no existing channels through which the creative energy could work, then the house would be formed directly from primal substance, without waiting for the slow processes of the organic and inorganic world. No thought of form can be impressed upon Original Substance without causing the creation of the form.

Man is a thinking center, and can originate thought. All the forms that man fashions with his hands must first exist in his thought; he cannot shape a thing until he has thought that thing."

Another book that recently came back into circulation is called "The Master Key System" written by Charles F. Haanel. This book, originally published in the early 1900's, offers a very clear, concise guide for harnessing the Power of Creative Thought.

The Master Key System is about success and the way to attain it. Google both of these book title and you can find them free online in e-book form.

The beauty of these principles is that they are congruent with every aspect of your life, and "success" is by your own definition. Whether you want to make a million dollars in your enterprise, or lose 20 pounds, get clear on your intent and watch the results unfold.

Sound too simple? Well, maybe, but who decided that attaining success and what you want in life has to involve hard work? Is that what you believe? If so, simply change your belief.

Here is an exercise that you can do right now, and can practice each day.

Close your eyes RIGHT now and think about what you would do with an extra $10,000 per month. Don't allow any negative thoughts to creep in, like "I'll never do that", "It will never happen to me", etc.

Just think about everything you would do with that income for the next 6 months. Smile and focus on how it feels to have that money. Now, hold that thought, and practice thinking and feeling that EXACT same thought and feeling for about 30 seconds, once every hour.

That's only about 8 minutes a day. Surely you can find 8 minutes a day (in 30 second intervals) to focus pure, positive energy on what you REALLY, REALLY want. And, do this for sure, right before you go to sleep! Have fun!

If you will practice this simple technique, DAILY, for the next 30 days, you will see remarkable changes!
