This is a very important article to read when you are first starting out in your business. I struggled with this same mind battle for many months until I went to my first Event and was slapped in the face. This article is from Keyanna Mayfield. The article talks about getting in the right mindset and building your business with the right perspective. Guys, this is an article that you will not want to miss if you are BRAND NEW to the game. Let’s dig into it…
“I want to take a little time out today to talk about a
strange and concerning trend that I’ve been noticing in my own
A trend that can destroy your business before it even launches.
A trend that will position you for ultimate disaster without
you even realizing it.
A trend that is so discreet and subversive that you may not
even know it’s happening to you.
As you can probably imagine I deal with a lot of new people
coming into the industry.
I come in contact with all kinds and from all backgrounds
and so I get to see a larger scope of what’s going on in the
industry than most.
And well here’s what I’ve noticed.
Many of the people that come to me for advice will either
send me an email or give me a call and they’ll start out by
saying . . .
“I don’t have a lot of money or time, but I really want to
make my network marketing business work. I want you
to show me exactly how to do this business without having to
spend any money or devote a significant amount of time
because I don’t have either.”
Now I don’t mind helping anyone get there business going,
but when I hear or read this from a newbie I silently shake
my head in disappointment.
I’m not disappointed because these people don’t have money
or time for their business, but rather because of their
mindset from the outset.
These people, whether they know it or not, are disqualifying
themselves away from success.
They are approaching me and their business as if they
“could” have a winning lottery ticket.
They bought in and now they are waiting to cash in.
Too much hope and not enough confidence.
When you approach your business from the initial standpoint
of what you don’t have, you’re working from the wrong
In essence what this paradigm says is . . .
“I hope this works, so tell me exactly what to do and I’ll do
it as long as it doesn’t take much money or time and if it
doesn’t work in X amount of time I’m going to quit because
IT obviously doesn’t work.”
This is WRONG!
But, I understand why people unknowingly think this way.
I get emails just like everyone else and most of them say .
“Join this business under me and I’ll build your downline
As if just getting in is going to make you money.
Sure for the marketer that sends out these messages they
will probably get quite a few people to join their business
because they are playing on our inherent laziness, but think
about this approach long term.
Say you get in a business with someone with this approach
and they do put lots of people under you in your business.
Why are those people below you?
They are all WAITING for the initial person to put more
people under them.
They may stick around for a while, but it’s highly unlikely
that many of them will ever take any action themselves.
Furthermore, for the marketer themselves, they’re not growing a
downline of people wanting to create freedom for themselves.
Rather they are actually attracting people that are waiting
for the marketer to do it all for them.
Take it from me, that’s not the type of team you want to
attract if you’re looking at this business from a long term
So . . .
With this message pervading the market I can see why so many
unsuspecting people buy into it and think that someone else is
doing everything for them without them really putting in
personal time or money is going to work.
It’s lazy and it can create some initial excitement, but
that’s about it.
But back to the point at hand . . .
When you approach your business with the above mentioned
perspective – what you don’t have or can’t do – you are
setting yourself up for failure and you are limiting your
chance of success.
I don’t care if you don’t have a dollar to your name, don’t
treat your business like you don’t have a dime or any time.
If you run your business from a poverty standpoint it will
pay you like a bankrupt business.
Can you make money in network marketing with very little
time or money?
Yes, but you have to think of your business from an abundant
Personally I didn’t have much money or time when I began
marketing my business, but I never thought about it as being
Instead I thought . . .
How can I create the money and time that I will need to
create high levels of success?
The resources you need for success are out there whether you
have them immediately or not.
It’s your job first to realize this and then to creatively
find ways to tap into them.
Don’t kill your business before it even starts by
disqualifying yourself from success.”
Finding the right perspective is huge and will set your business on the right foot towards success. Start today by asking yourself again why you are getting into this business? What will you achieve when you start taking the right steps to make your business successful? Who will you surround yourself with that will help encourage you and lift you up?
Make today the day when you start having a positive perspective on your business and stopkilling your business before it even starts!
