“We are continually faced by great opportunities brilliantly disguised as insoluble problems.” ~ Lee Iococca

The economy is bad these days. It is effecting people everywhere. I see friends and family suffering and I hear them complaining about their situation. All the while my business is THRIVING.

Network marketing tends to be one type of business that does well in times of economic down times. One reason for that is because people are looking for ways to supplement their income.

Really, the way you look at it has a lot to do with whether your business will thrive or take a dive in a bad economy. I see it in my own downline. Some are thriving and growing their business while some are having their sales volume fall off. The ones who are dropping in sales volume are moaning about how bad the economy is and saying they can’t get anyone to buy anything. They are projecting poverty mentality and it is literally shutting down their business.

Your mindset, the words you use and the energy you radiate have a lot to do with how successful your business will be, especially in a bad economy.

When I began my network marketing career, over 13 years ago, I was going through a tough time financially. My energy and belief was at a really low point. At the time, I was also a struggling artist doing art shows and selling Rainbow Cleaning Systems on the side. Both of those involved sales. Both of those I was failing miserably at.

At the time I hadn’t yet learned about mindset and the power of the Law of Attraction. I just knew I couldn’t sell anything if my life depended on it. I was radiating the energy of desperation which actually repelled buying customers.

Since that time I have spent a lot of time learning about how the words we use, the emotions and the energy we radiate effects how successful we will be. If we are worrying about the economy and how expensive things are, that sends an energy that actually repels sales. This is not the energy we want if we are intending to build a successful business.

It is important to have a strong belief in your business and your products. Not only that, but you also need to realize and BELIEVE that you have a potential solution for many people’s economic crisis.

Some of the greatest growth in this industry happens when the economy is bad. Are you going to see this as an opportune time to build your business or are you going to join the masses and be paralyzed with fear?
