There is one question I get asked a lot. New distributors ask it but even distributors who have been working a at their business for quite some time often ask, “What is the secret to success?”

That’s a good question. There are a lot of things involved in a successful network marketing business but the most important is summed up in 2 words.

“Get started.”

You may think that is overly simple but the sad fact is, most people never really get started building a successful network marketing business. They buy a starter kit but never do much else.

You want FREEDOM from the passion killing corporate grind, grow an income that will be there for supplemental or full time income for retirement years. That will not happen if you don’t get started BUILDING your business which involves marketing and promoting.

You have to figure out which ways to market and promote your business. Once you figure out those things, you need to use trial and error to test out what works for you. You may even find that you need to totally change directions. The thing is, you can’t change directions until you get moving. Think of driving a car. The car has to be moving before you can turn in any direction, whether a slight turn or a full turn.

One of my mentors used to say,
You don’t have to get it right, you just have to get it GOING!

The way to get anywhere is to start from where you are right now and learn as you go. Prospecting and marketing = sales volume growth = income growth. Getting started involves getting your marketing materials together and getting to it. As you learn and practice, you get better and better, more and more comfortable.

Here’s and EFT Script to help you get motivated:

Apply 1 – 3 drops of Release oil on your fingertips, then tap on the Karate Chop Point with the oiled up fingertips. As you are tapping the EFT Points, you will have enough remaining oil to carry to all the other points.

While tapping the Karate Chop Point:
Even though I don’t know what to do , I deeply and completely love and accept myself.
Even though I’m stuck and don’t feel like doing anything, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.
Even though I am feeling stuck and unmotivated, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

You can add something specific you need to do if you want. Don’t worry. It doesn’t matter what words you say on which points.

Round One: Focusing on the Negative Feelings

(side of eye) I don’t know what to do.

Take a deep breath.

If you feel you need more work on this, run through the tapping a few more times. You may need to revisit this issue from time to time. We all have days when we need a reboot. 😉

Procrastination is a problem for many network marketers. Do you find yourself procrastinating when you know you have things that you would like to be doing that will grow your business faster? We all do it from time to time but if it becomes a regular pattern, it is very difficult to make real progress in anything, whether it is our Young Living business, our fitness goals or any other goal we are working toward.


snoozing-on-a-desk Procrastination is caused by our subconscious fears. Those fears cause us to sabotage our success.

What are you feeling? What fear is causing a need to sabotage? We all have different personalities and backgrounds that caused our fears. For me, my biggest fear was around leadership and being visible. I know some of that came from being abducted at age 9. I was able to escape before anything really serious happened but it made a powerful impact on me that has been in my subconscious ever since that day. It made me feel unsafe to be noticed and visible. Well, network marketing is a business that requires that you get out there and connect with people. To be successful, you must be a good leader. A leader must be VISIBLE! EFT has been a powerful tool in clearing that issue for me.


Sometimes you don’t really know for sure why you are procrastinating and sabotaging your progress. I have included the EFT tapping script below for that. You can start with clearing general sabotage by procrastination, then tap on specific reasons once you start remembering things that could apply to your situation. Often things will come to mind as you are tapping. These are important. Add them to your tapping list.


Don’t worry about what words to say and what points to tap. Just tap through the points saying whatever comes to mind. You can use the script below as an example and change it up as you choose.


Even though I have been procrastinating, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.
Even though I don’t feel like doing what I know will make me successful, I choose to love and accept myself.
Even though I am procrastinating and I know that’s a form of sabotage, I love and forgive myself.
