Do People Really Fail at MLM?
We’ve all heard it before: the claim that MLM doesn’t work and most people fail in their MLM business and that chances are you will too.
I’d like to point out that very few people actually fail at MLM.
Mostly they quit. There is a huge difference.
What you need to understand right from the start is that the only person that can make your business a success is you.
No one else is going to make that happen. Not your upline, not your downline. YOU. And if you decide to quit, that is a decision you made, not a failure.
Have you ever had anyone say no to your opportunity? Does everyone say yes to you? My guess is most likely not. Well, the key is to not give up.
Giving up is the easiest thing to do. If you’re not used to hearing No, or your self-confidence is low, it’s easy to want to throw in the towel.
Here Are Some Reasons Why You Might Want To Give Up:
It Got Hard –
Yes, maybe you were thinking that this would instantly make you rich, but the fact is our business does require work.
Sometimes when people discover this, they simply give up.
The ones who stay and don’t quit reap the rewards – be the person who perseveres.
You Got Scared –
Starting your own business can be scary, but then so can life.
Maybe you don’t want to take chances or don’t want to face humiliation or risk failure.
Maybe you decided to stick with something “safe” like a job.
That job may fill your life with boredom, but at least you know you will always make it, and you don’t have to be afraid to fail.
You Got Discouraged –
Truth is, most people don’t want to see you succeed.
They’re also afraid – afraid that if you succeed you’ll leave them behind.
They will ask you, “Why are you doing this?” or “People don’t make money doing that.”
People want you to be stuck, just like them, so they can continue to be comfortable.
Successful people don’t listen to this type of talk. They know where they are going and they will succeed, with or without their friends.
You “Settled” –
Wow! The moment you resign and say, “Well, this is good enough”, you’ve given up and let go of your dreams.
You might justify yourself by saying things like “it’s time to grow up” or remind yourself that you have a mortgage and responsibilities.
You’ll find reasons to stop this “nonsense” of chasing your dream.
Settling is not what makes you happy.
Did you “settle” for the person you married? Your job? Your income? Chances are, in every area you “settled,” you are unhappy or wish you’d done something different.
There is Something Very Interesting About Quitting
Just about every opportunity out there has a 97% quit rate.
Whether it is trying out a new sport like golf or tennis, learning a performing art like dancing or acting, or starting a new profession like network marketing, the quit rate is the same; about 97%.
Why do people start things and then quit?
Why do a little bit and then give up?
The reason…. giving up is easier than doing what is necessary to get to where they want to be.
It is not that they have failed. There is no failing…. They simply quit.
You Have to Do the Work To Be Successful
If you want success, but you don’t want to do what is required to get success then it isn’t going to work.
Everyone wants the result, but you need to want to take the steps to achieve that result.
That is the difference between winners and quitters.
Next time you hear someone make the claim that most people fail at MLM, think deeper about what it is they’re really trying to say.
Chances are, they started a business at some point but they didn’t put in the hard work required to build a successful business.
Don’t be discouraged by naysayers.
Instead, take a look at those that have succeeded and begin to understand why they made it above the curve and others didn’t.
Look up, not down.
Find inspiration in those that have built empires on their own hard work, and don’t look to the bottom to hear stories of giving up and not trying.
