There are actually more than 7 secrets to success in network marketing. Well, let’s get real. They aren’t really secrets but to some distributors, it is as though they are.


Here are seven of the more important things that all successful network marketers know and apply. If you are not aware of these and focusing on them, you will have a tough time achieving any level of success.



    1. Having a good Self Image – Having a good self image is important. If you don’t, it makes everything a struggle. You may find it difficult to maintain any success that you achieve because something in the self conscious says you aren’t good enough so it begins to put the brakes on.


    That is why I started Esteem Power Newsletter. It is centered around helping network marketers raise their self-esteem of self-image.


    2. Know Your WHY – This is another crucial one. If you don’t know why you want success in network marketing, you WILL NEVER have any success that amounts to anything.


    Your WHY has to be really strong and MUST be emotional. I can’t stress that enough. If you don’t have a really strong WHY, you won’t do what it takes to get things done. Network marketing is an industry with a really high failure rate. I have heard percentage rates of failure in the 90s. I don’t know the real numbers but I know they are high.


    The failure rate is not because network marketing doesn’t work. It does work. I am a living example that it works and so are several in my downline and upline that are full time network marketers.


    The failure is on each individual who does not do the necessary things. Failure is because people don’t do the work, both on themselves and their business. They don’t study, they don’t learn, they don’t apply what they learn and they don’t do enough marketing. It’s really simple.


    3. Believe in Yourself and the Industry – This is HUGE. YOU MUST, YOU MUST, YOU MUST BELIEVE! If you aren’t 100% confident that you can do this, you may as well pack it up and settle in at the JOB.


    There are lots of ways you can build belief. Hmmm, I think that will be the focus of my next blog post. 😉


    4. Visualize Success – You MUST see yourself reaching your goals. You should actually have goals written down, then daily visualizing reaching those goals. Every night before going to bed visualize goals I want to achieve. I try to get as detailed as I possibly can. What I am wearing, who I am talking to, what I am saying, I visualized myself getting awards on stage. I visualized all kinds of scenarios where I could see my check and others could also see it and be impressed. My favorite was going into the bank to deposit the check and the bank teller wanting to know how I get all these big checks.


    I had so much fun when I got to that point. I loved handing the bank teller my check for deposit. Some of them were around for several years and observed my checks growing. That’s one thing I miss now that our checks are direct deposited.


    Anyway, think up all kinds of ways you can visualize success. It’s fun and you’ll be amazed how it helps you get there faster. As you are visualizing, keep reflecting on your WHY.


    5. Take MASSIVE Action – This one seems like common sense to me. If you don’t take action, NOTHING will happen.


    You must make a plan and then WORK YOU PLAN! I see far too many distributors sign up who seem to think that all they have to do is join and their business will build itself as if by osmosis. Sorry to burst anyone’s bubble but that’s not how business of any kind works.


    Actually you need to take appropriate action. Some people fiddle with this and that doing “business tasks” and are not really doing action that amounts to making progress.


    ACTION, ACTION, ACTION!! Every morning ask yourself, “What can I do today to MOVE my business forward toward the realization of my goals?”


    6. Learning From Mistakes – It is a fact of life. There will be mistakes, lots of them. In the beginning you are learning. You are learning about your company, learning ways to market yourself and your business and just getting the feel for what fits your style of business building.


    This is one that makes me kind of sad. I want to see people experience the freedom of working from home but I’ve seen far too many distributors give up way too soon because the things they did to promote their business didn’t work as they planned.


    You have to keep trying and testing until you find what fits YOUR style. There are marketing techniques that fit most anyone. I am an excellent example. I was very uncomfortable approaching strangers and I was not into harassing friends and family. I had to test all kinds of marketing and THAT I DID!


    Lots of marketing techniques I tried were abysmal failures, some I spent a lot of money on. In the beginning I was broke so free and really cheap was all I could do. The point is, you have to keep trying and testing methods to promote your business.


    Think of each mistake or failure as a lesson. Learn the lesson, make the adjustments and KEEP PROGRESSING!


    7. Celebrate Abundance – Be on the watch for anything that is progress. Celebrate progress. Celebrate abundance. Celebrate when you learn something that will grow your business.


    Celebrate success in others too. I have a silly fun thing I do with a few of my team members who use MSN Messenger. There is a thing they call a “Wink” that you can send a little animated sequence to someone on your list of contacts. Whenever I see an abundant thing happening in their group, I send a special abundance “wink.” Watch the video below to see what I am taking about.





These days you hear people all around you talking about how bad the economy is and how high the prices are getting. It seems like everywhere I go they are talking about the price of gas and how they can’t afford to go anywhere.


It can be a real challenge to keep ourselves in an abundant energy when we are surrounded by people who are stuck in poverty consciousness. For sure it is a challenge but we must take the bull by the horns and get control, otherwise, we will be sucked into the energy of poverty consciousness.


So how do we shift our energy to a better one when others are moaning and whining about how bad things are?


Try these ideas:

  • Listen to audios on abundance and motivation. A couple examples I use are Jim Rohn, Michael Losier and T. Harv Eker’s “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind.”
  • Listen to success music. If you do a Google search you will find some.
  • Notice things you already have that you are grateful for, then express gratitude. Writing in a gratitude journal is a really powerful activity because it gets you focusing on abundant things.
  • Listen to Think Right Now audios. I love these audios. I have almost all of them.
    Here are a few of my favorites:

Another way to increase abundance energy vibration is to use EFT to shift to an abundant attitude.

EFT is a powerful tool to use along with the law of attraction. With the law of attraction, you attract whatever matches the energy or vibrations you are sending out or radiating.



Daily EFT can really set the tone for your abundance energy as you set about to do the daily tasks in your business. Not only does EFT help remove fears but it also enhances the law of attraction.
