MLM Training - The 3 Secrets To Conquering Negative Prospects' Comments

Apr 6, 2008
There they go again.

One more time.

Friends and family spouting off Negative comments about your business and your future. You get so mad sometimes that you just want to walk away and say, "forget it." You stare at them and wonder what to say or do, but yet the words only get caught in your throat.

You do attempt to play some form of "verbal judo," but they have you in a head lock with their words and you just slink back into the chair and feel defeated.

But here is the worst part and the most hurtful part to their negative comments:

They actually make sense with their logic. Ot at least seem to.

You stand or sit there and just take the negative spew. And you just wish you knew what to say. But you remain silent and actually start to ask these questions:

"Could they be right?"

"Could they actually have a point here?"

"What if they ARE right?"

And the doubt and the fear slowly start creeping in, and you start to question your decisions and future.

This happens everyday in the land of home businesses. Negative people start to try and stop you because of their own fears and insecurities and many times- they are very successful.

But it is time that cam to an abrupt halt.

Understand this:

Negative well meaning people are still -- negative. (Read that again.) They may mean well, but there has never been any Success accomplished in any home business with a negative focus and a negative language.

So what do you do?

Here are 3 things that can say to help neutralize the negative comments when they appear:

1) "I appreciate that comment, but let me ask you a question: Who in the world sold you on THAT?"

2) "Thanks for sharing, but what you just said does not match up at all to what I have researched about this company and products. Would you like to see a little of my research?"

3)"That is an interesting way to look at it. There are several other ways to look at that I have found as well. Let me explain..."

And there is also a secret to doing this:


It is called the single most powerful "velvet hammer" when you answer a negative prospect. Confidence tells the negative MLM prospect that you understand that they have an "opinion" but you are not buying what they said. They will FEEL that in your words.

Most negative prospects are just that way: negative.

So you have a decision to make:

Are you going to let the negative mlm prospect influence or even dominate your business, or are you going to continue with confidence and not worry about the naysayers?

It will determine much about your future success in your MLM and Network marketing business.
