“I’m doing GREAT and, to my amazement, things just keep getting better!” That is the way an old business associate of mine responded when people would ask, “How are you?”  I heard him say it many times during the time I was associated with him.

I loved that response so much I started using a similar version of it. When I first heard it I noticed the lift of energy among the group. His greeting effected everyone, including me.

This was a successful network marketing leader who was radiating a great energy. I thought, “WOW, what a powerful response to a greeting we hear many times a day.”

What are the responses people give when you greet them with, How are you?”   Most of the time I hear mid to low energy responses. Maybe you’ll recognize a few of these:

“I’m fine”
“I’m OK”
“I’m good”
“Not so good”
“I’m terrible”
“Still among the living!”
“As good as can be expected”
“Still breathing”
“I can’t complain … I’ve tried, but no one listens”
“Fair to middling”

I’m sure you have heard lots of other responses. Some people will even tell you all the horrible things that are going on in their life.

Think about the principles of the Law of Attraction. What kind of abundance vibration or energy do you want to send out. Are those really the kind of responses you want to use when someone asks “How are you?”

What you speak about comes about. Hmmm.

Wouldn’t it be better to have a response like . . .
“I’m just WONDERFUL!”

Here is a funny one I heard recently:  “If I were doing any better vitamins would be taking ME!”

Try using really positive energizing words in your response.

Do you want to know a really cool thing that happens when I respond with “I’m just WONDERFUL!” or something similar?

My mood lifts a little each time I say it. Not only that but I can see it effecting the person I am talking to. They pause and smile and you can see them wondering what’s up. I have had people follow me around trying to find out why I was so happy.

Remember: To ATTRACT ABUNDANCE you need to vibrate GOOD ENERGY!!

“Eighty percent of success is showing up” ~ Woody Allen

While showing up is important, actually functioning as a marketer and as a communicator is VITAL to success in network marketing.

Too often I hear hypey, “All you need is this SYSTEM and the business runs itself” or some version of that nonsense.

People have bought into the lie that they don’t have to do anything. The product just “SELLS ITSELF!” Or, “OUR SYSTEM DOES ALL THE WORK!”

Well, I am sorry to burst some people’s bubble but, NO REAL BUSINESS works that way.

There are a lot of things that we need to be working on to build a business that will create a life of FREEDOM. Two things that are crucial to a successful network marketing business are marketing and communication.

ONLY Pro-Active Action Builds A Lifestyle of FREEDOM!

Plain and simple, you MUST be pro-actively marketing and communicating in your business.

If you have a website, your goal is to get massive amounts of people to your website. The larger the numbers, the larger success you will have.

The degree of success you will have depends on YOU and how much marketing and communicating you do!

To my astonishment, I have had downline members, who say they want a successful business, yet they don’t respond to emails or phone calls. Checking and responding to email is one of the daily tasks that should not be neglected.

The sad thing is that I have had a couple of people respond to an email I sent them a month ago. Really??? It takes a MONTH to respond to my email? Are you taking that long to respond to prospects on your website?

Communication is one of the top priorities in your business. If a prospect is on your website and sends you an email, you must respond quickly.

Welcome new distributors and customers and communicate with them. It is a good idea to write a newsletter or a blog so you can communicate things they need to know.

Newton’s First Law of Motion states, “An object at rest tends to stay at rest and an object in motion tends to stay in motion.” It’s time to get it in gear. It’s time to make things happen.

Yes, it is challenging to build momentum from a complete standstill. If you want FREEDOM of working from home, it is imperative that you start and keep moving forward.

I speak from experience, I have been working entirely from home for over 10 years. There is not much better feeling than the freedom that that comes from working at home.

Look to the horizon and take the next step – however small – and keep moving forward!
