“The only barriers to success are the ones you create in your own mind.” — Brian Tracy

It doesn’t matter what you are wanting to be successful in, whether you want to be successful in business, releasing excess weight, playing a winning game of golf or whatever …

Success is in the mind.

Our Success and our failure comes from what is going on in our MIND. That is why it is imperative that we make changing our negative thinking a priority. A few years ago a distributor told me that no one in Minnesota, where she lived, was interested in natural health. What a ridiculous statement. There are people all around you who are interested in natural health. Funny thing, a few years ago Young Living Essential Oils had a national convention in the city this woman lived in. No way a convention gets hosted in an area where no one is interested in natural health.

The point is, our negative thinking can really put a damper on the success of our business. You can talk yourself in or out of something because deep inside you are unsure or even afraid. Your subconscious mind is always operating and it can be steering you in the wrong direction. It means well but it can be influenced by things from the past, people around us and many other influences.


You can influence your subconscious to work more in harmony with your goals for progressing in all sorts of areas in life but especially in building your network marketing business. I recommend reading the book The Power of Your Subconscious Mind by Joseph Murphy. I have read several of his books and found them to be very helpful in understanding how powerful a tool we have in our own mind.

Napoleon Hill said, “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”

If you believe it, you can see it accomplished.

The Power of Your Subconscious Mind

In order for you to create a different life, you have to see yourself differently. If you want to transform your life or your business, you need to see yourself differently. How do you see yourself right now? Do you see yourself as a successful person or do you feel that success is for other people?

It starts with a clear vision of what success looks like. Where do you want to go in your business. Do you want to supplement the income you already have? Do you want to have full time income working from home? Do you want financial freedom?

WHY are you building your business? If you haven’t really thought about why you are building your business, you need to stop and think about that right now. You need a clear vision about where you are going. Not only seeing it but FEELING it.

focusWhat you focus on, you attract more of. If you are focusing on what you do not like about your situation, you will attract more of the same. If you focus on what you don’t like about the way your business is going, you will keep attracting the same things. You want to be focusing on where you want to be in your business. Close your eyes and visualize how things will look when you have achieved your goal.

I like to talk through my visualization to help me get to the feelings. Use lots of feeling words as you are doing it. For example:

If you want to get to full time income, you need to get to leadership levels in your company. Visualize yourself on stage getting an award and say, “I am so excited for the day when I will walk on stage and get my award. I am wearing a sharp business suit and there are upline waiting at the side to congratulate me, people are cheering I am giddy with excitement. I feel so proud that I have achieved this and I love how it feels to be an inspiration to my friends who are also working toward this goal. It is so exciting to have financial and time freedom and be able to do whatever I want anytime I want.”

I like to visualize getting awards because it represents getting to the leadership ranks which means you have built a large organization. It is not the awards but the FREEDOM that comes with building your business. Add anything that adds to your vision of success. If you want to travel, add some visualization about that. Just keep thinking and talking about the way you would like it to be and the feelings that will bring.

Whenever you catch yourself focusing on negative things you don’t want, stop yourself and refocus on what you want it to look like.

Young Living members have some helpful resources in the emotional oil blends. There are several that can be used here. Some possible choices are: Abundance, Dream Catcher, Envision, Live With Passion, Magnify Your Purpose, Transformation, Valor.
