What it Takes to Be Successful in Network Marketing

What it Takes to Be Successful in Network Marketing

by Randy Gage

Network Marketing is perfect for everyone. However, everyone
is not perfect for Network Marketing...

I believe Network Marketing is an amazing profession, and truly
is the last bastion left in the free enterprise system where
someone without education, famous bloodlines, or a large
investment can become wealthy.

The benefits are extraordinary. Unlimited earning potential,
tax breaks, travel opportunities, and the chance to help others
while you are building your own success. But it's still not
for everyone.


Because it takes a certain personality type to be successful.
So, while I would certainly urge anyone who desires a better
lifestyle to consider Network Marketing as a career choice -
before you commit to doing that, give yourself an honest

Most people equate security with a nine-to-five job. They see
the rat race as a necessary evil in life.

Network marketers suffer from no such delusions. They see a
job as an insidious trap - one that gives you just enough
income so you are afraid to forego it - yet not enough to
achieve any financial freedom.

They look at people clawing their way up the corporate
structure with the detached wonder you would expect to see on
the face of a ten-year-old child, watching the activity in an
ant farm. They know that we need ants in this world, but they
certainly don't want to be one.

Most people strive to maintain the appearance of having a good
job, even if it's one they despise, because that is what
society expects of them. They look for a "real" job with a
certain status or title, and will often settle for that their
whole life, because they don't know any better. Network
marketing professionals dream of a career of limitless
potential, personal development, and growth, and then work
until that dream becomes a reality. We look at the rat race
and wonder why people would forego their human dignity in the
pursuit of a steady paycheck.

Make no mistake: if you need someone checking over your
shoulder, you can't seem to motivate yourself, or want the
security of a Friday paycheck, then Network Marketing is not
for you.

You will need an entrepreneurial mindset if you expect to last
in this business. Not everyone has this. Imagine not getting
a paycheck every Friday. No guarantees. Just a big bonus
check, which is directly dependent on what you produce.

If that scares you, you may be better suited for a corporate
job. But if the idea of determining exactly how much you can
earn excites you, then you are a great candidate for the

As a rule, strong personality types do best. You must be self-
motivated, able to work without supervision, and good at follow
up. And while you must be a strong personality, you also must
be smart. Here's why...

Network Marketing is a business of duplication. A big part of
the business is the ability to follow the successful patterns,
strategies, and systems developed by your company and
sponsorship line. It means less personal glory, but more
personal security, because your business is not so dependent on

So smart networkers adopt the systems and procedures that have
been successfully demonstrated to work from their sponsorship
line. This ultimately gives you better security, because you
can later back off from the business, without a decrease in

If you are insecure, and need your ego constantly massaged, the
business will be quite difficult for you. You'll build
everything around yourself, and that means you'll never develop
any passive income and become a grinder. Like any
entrepreneur, you must be confident in the face of peer
pressure and challenges. What we are doing is different. Many
people are threatened by things they don't understand. That
will make some of the people you know suspicious, others will
be skeptical, and yet others will be jealous.

So when you proudly announce to the world that you have joined
a network marketing company in search of a better lifestyle,
don't be surprised if some of those people assault you with all
the reasons you shouldn't...they wouldn't...and you couldn't,
possibly succeed in such a venture.

Then these "well-intentioned" souls will regale you with one
horror story after another, of people who tried Network
Marketing and failed, bought a garage full of products in the
dream of instant riches, or contracted an almost fatal case of
hives from using some skin-care product.

Many people are not willing to be wealthy. They have been
raised with "lack" consciousness. They subconsciously believe
they are not deserving of riches; they mistakenly believe there
is something spiritual about being poor; or they have
discovered that becoming wealthy involves a degree of work.

It's highly likely that these kinds of people are all around
you. And nothing is more threatening to these people than to
think that someone they know is becoming successful. They will
do anything in their power to dissuade you, and in some cases,
actually sabotage you. If you want to make it in the business,
you must believe in it strongly, and not need the validation of
others. My career took a dramatic upswing when I learned a
valuable lesson...

I stopped taking financial advice from broke people!

When I started the business, I was penniless and struggling.
Unfortunately, most of the people I knew were also broke and
struggling. They all tried to talk me out of the business, and
convince me it couldn't work.

I came to realize that these people didn't know anything about
business success. So even though they were well meaning, they
were trying to give advice in an area they knew nothing about.

When you need advice, you must go to people who have already
done the business successfully. When you understand and act on
this, you dramatically increase your chances for success.

Another mandatory requirement for long-term success is
conducting your business with integrity.

Although there are some examples of people bringing down big-
dollar incomes instantly by filling someone's garage full of
water filters (or diet cookies, or bottles of juice), those
incomes don't last. It's only a question of time before these
people run out of prospects to front-load and must find a new
program to work where they can start the process all over
again. Long term, these kinds of practices will ultimately
destroy your business.

In this business, when you sponsor someone, you are, in
essence, his or her partner and mentor for life. Even after
they learn the skills you teach them and become high-level
executives themselves, they will always look to you as a
compass for the moral fiber, accountability, and culture of the
organization. Much more than traditional business, Network
Marketing revolves around the trust between the sponsor and his
or her distributors.

This is the strongest recruiting asset you possess. Millions
of people are fed up with the dysfunctional relationships,
gossip, office politics and lack of accountability in the
corporate world. The honesty, accountability, and sense of
community in Network Marketing will attract them even more than
the money, cars and trips.

If you ever lie to your distributor - even thinking it's for
his own good - you will destroy the bond that is the foundation
of the business. You will also eliminate one of the most
powerful enticements that attract people into the business.
Distributors who have built lasting success have learned that
their word must be their bond, and integrity is sacred.

Another important prerequisite for Network Marketing success is
good teaching skills. Here's why...

About ten percent of the population are sales types. They like
to sell; they're good at it; and they don't fear rejection.
About ninety percent of the population rank selling on their
list of things to do right up there with jumping into a pit of
rattlesnakes. The mere thought of rejection sends them
scurrying for the cover of their comfort zone. If you make
cold calling, knocking on doors, and approaching strangers on
street corners part of your recruiting strategy - you will
scare away ninety percent of your prospects instantly.

Because they cannot see themselves doing those things...

In fact, only one person in a thousand will be successful with
those types of approaches. Worse yet, because these techniques
are hard to duplicate, people will have to keep sponsoring
massive numbers of new distributors on a monthly basis, just to
keep their income steady. All the rah-rah hype they can muster
will not change this. They have no residual income security
and will have to rally and rebuild lines every few months.

By contrast, successful network marketers concentrate on
simple, duplicatable actions that they can teach to anyone.
Their number one priority is making sure that their
organization knows everything they do. The people they bring
into the business can readily repeat the same actions, so the
organization grows faster. The formula for creating wealth in
our business is:

Lead a large group of people, to consistently do a few simple
actions, over a sustained period of time.

You will find that schoolteachers, professors, sports coaches,
professional trainers and yoga teachers naturally excel at
Network Marketing. So if you have good teaching skills, you're
very likely to be successful in Network Marketing.

The next thing you have to do to be successful is commit to
daily self-development time. Usually the early morning is the
best time to do this. The kids are asleep, there are fewer
distractions, and you can concentrate on you. Plus you will
put yourself in a great state of mind before you even leave the
house, which will allow you to attract high caliber people.

It's important that you set aside this time each day for quiet
reflection and self-development. You need a learning library
of books, videos, and CDs to stay motivated against negative
programming, learn new techniques, and keep your focus.

Initially, I thought that success would come from changing
others. I soon learned that real success comes from changing
yourself. The actions you take and the examples you set,
create a ripple effect that impacts everything around you in a
positive way. I believe that your network grows only as fast
as you do. When you are growing each day, so will your

So as you can see, the business of Network Marketing is quite
different from the corporate world. It takes a certain
entrepreneurial zeal, and a self-motivated mindset. You must
have strong self-esteem, and conduct your business with
absolute integrity. And finally, you should be willing to
submerge your ego where necessary and utilize the systems that
have been developed by the sponsorship line above you.
