MLM Training - You've Got To Stay In The Game

Oct 12, 2007
MLM failure after MLM failure, that's the way my MLM career began. Sadly, most people give up on MLM before they ever achieve any success whatsoever. What I didn't know at the time, was that all my failures were actually preparing me for phenomenal MLM success!

You may have failed at MLM over and over again, but have you ever stopped to think what you have learned along the way? If you've paid any attention at all you've learned a lot more than you probably realize. If nothing else you've certainly learned what not to do!

MLM isn't about convincing people to do anything. Most MLM rookies make this mistake so often you would think that they would begin to understand. The harder you work to convince your prospects that this business will change their lives, the more likely they are to never get involved in the industry.

I had to learn this lesson the hard way even after I had become incredibly successful. It's entirely possible for you to still be learning valuable lessons even after reaching financial goals that you thought would elude you forever.

Many years ago we were enjoying the tremendous life that MLM success can give you. What I'm really trying to say, without actually saying it, is that I wasn't really working my MLM business because I didn't have to. Our company was offering some kind of incentive, it's been so long that I really can't remember what it was, but I had been goofing off for so long that I didn't have any prospects in my prospecting pipeline.

It was the final day of the promotion and I was meeting with a successful businessman and sharing with him how great our business was. By this time I was no longer trying to convince people that my MLM opportunity was right for them, but I was selling really hard that day trying to qualify for that special promotion.

I finished what I knew was a great presentation and there was no doubt in my mind that this guy was going to sign on the dotted line. I was exceptionally proud of myself when my prospect said the words that I will never forget. "Scott, if your business is so awesome why do you have to have me sign up right now?"

My heart sank, and I struggled to answer his question. Then the right words just flew out of my mouth, "I don't need you to do this right now" I said. Then I thanked him for being honest with me and realized that I had just learned a valuable lesson. Trying to convince people to join your MLM opportunity makes you look desperate!

Sure it's easy to get frustrated and quit. Just imagine how much better you'll be if you just stay in the game long enough to learn valuable lessons that will pay huge dividends over the next 5 to 10 years of your life. I've shared that story with thousands of people in my MLM business and some of them understood exactly why I was sharing that story with them. So they wouldn't make the same mistake I did.

That day I blew it. Perhaps at some point in the future that prospect may have joined my team and perhaps he would have been an MLM superstar. That wasn't going to happen now because I had given him the wrong impression of our industry.

How often do you think MLM rookies make that same mistake? One of the biggest reasons people fail in MLM is that they fail to learn valuable lessons along the way. It's so much easier to start believing that MLM doesn't work isn't it? It can't be my fault. What if you quit blaming everybody else and started to realize that we all have a lot to learn on the way to success?

Hopefully you've got an upline mentor to teach you how not to do this business, but even if you don't, stay in the game and learn from your own mistakes. You'll be amazed just how much you can learn and how much better you life will be when you do.
