As I remember, before I had a network marketing mindset, it was massively frustrating to work hard at building a business with little or no success.
We have all been there and somehow at one point in our network marketing careers or in this case my doTERRA career, we suddenly ask, “What am I doing wrong?”
There is lots of information available in books and online explaining how to run a MLM business and in most cases the training is great. The main issue is they often forget to mention the most important factor that makes one person successful and someone else not.
There are a few books that are worth reading, one of my favorites worth considering is “The slight Edge” by Jeff Olson and another for those want to work online is "Beginners guide to online prospecting in network marketing" by Steven Jackson.
"The truth is, what you do matters. What you do today matters. What you do every day matters. Successful people just do the things that seem to make no difference in the act of doing them and they do them over and over and over until the compound effect kicks in.

So, doing what others can’t or won’t do is the key element towards success and then being consistent until the result has been achieved.
The second eBook I want to suggest is a very practical one called, "Beginners guide to online prospecting in network marketing" by Steven Jackson.
"That learning something that is duplicatable, but doesn’t really work for the masses makes no sense. However, learning a new skill that does work and will develop you personally and progress your business is a victory. The advantage of the online method is that you can learn while you earn like a traditional MLM business, but have a better chance of success."

Think about it for a few minutes. The excitement of starting a new business and all the possibilities that come with it. It is great for the first few months until reality slowly starts to dawn on you.
Why is my business going nowhere fast?
However, your business is still not moving forward
Running a MLM business is like running a marathon, which most runners and athletes will understand is 90% mental and 10% physical.
Everyday you work on your business, putting one foot in front of the other, but your mental strength will be the thing that pushes you forward when you feel you cannot continue.
Many years ago I watched a dear friend of mine during a bad time in his life. He had been a successful network marketer and then lost it all. He sat in a small apartment eating cold beans out of a can and within a year became successful as a network marketer for the second time from almost nothing.
When I asked him, “how did he manage to become successful for the second time?” He told me, “Even though things were bad, people in my life still needed me, so I needed to change my attitude, that meant:
After pondering his answer for many years I put it down to his own mindset to success and turning a bad situation into a good one. People needed him so he needed to step up and get his shit together. Over the years we got together for a chat and over that time I began to understand some of the key points that made him successful.
Below I am sharing them with you all.
Socialize with successful people:
Never stop learning something new:
There is no such this as “can’t”:
Build a support system:
Create a positive and successful mindset routine:
Why do we hold ourselves back from the success and income we really want and deserve?
It is a complex question, but in many cases the answer is simple. We are being asked to move out of our comfort zone in an area of possible failure and embarrassment. This is not a comfortable feeling, but to become a MLM leader sacrifices need to be made and action needed to be taken.
Some of us are born with no fear of failure and a confident mindset, but others need to develop these MLM skills overtime.
Hopefully you have found what is holding you back from having a successful people mindset in your network marketing business and found a solution that will move you forward.
Now, the most important question, what are you willing to do about it?
Every time you need to change something in your life or move out of your comfort zone or push the limits of what you believe you can do. Stop for a second and remember that you are moving one step closer towards a better network marketing mindset that will give you success.
