focusKeeping focused on the road ahead. When you are driving your car toward a destination, you need to keep focused on the road ahead. You have laid out the path to the destination and you start your journey toward your goal.


You look in the rear view mirror briefly but you don’t spend too much time looking at what is behind you. If you did that, you would run off the road and crash.


Another thing: you don’t spend too much time looking at the things beside you or around you. If you want to arrive safely at your destination, you keep focused on the road ahead. That way you see the bumps and potholes and anything that is going to slow or hinder you in your journey. Sometimes you may come across a detour and may need to make an adjustment to your route but you still have your destination in mind and you are still focused ahead on the goal.


Now think about the driving illustration as you work toward your goals. This principal applies to any goals we are working on. It could be spiritual goals, weight loss goals, exercise and fitness goals, business goals or pretty much anything we are working toward. Since this blog is primarily to help you as a network marketer, we will focus on business goals.


The first thing you need to do is figure out where you want to go in your business. Your WHY! For me it was FREEDOM. Freedom from the daily grind of having to go to a job that I really didn’t enjoy, just to make ends meet. Life is too short to waste doing that. Also Financial Freedom was a part of it.


Most network marketers start their business with the idea of some kind of freedom that building a home business can help you achieve. Whether you are thinking that an income on the side that would supplement your monthly income or whether you intend to grow a business that can fully support your family, the same principle applies. You have to keep your goal in mind and your eyes on the road ahead.


You will occasionally look in the rear view mirror to see things behind. You can learn from things that happened in the past, both good and bad. You must not spend too long dwelling on the past. If you do, you have taken your eyes off the road. This is especially a problem if we have things we feel bad about and wish we had done differently. We can end up beating up on ourselves and wasting time. Dieters often have this problem. A bad eating day can result in going days before getting back on track. Just acknowledge it and say, “Yup, I messed that up. Now I’m focusing on the future!”


As you are driving a car, there will be things that happen around you. You have someone in the car with you, you see beautiful scenery along the road, passing interesting locations you might like to check out or any number of distractions. The same is true as you are driving toward your business goals. There will be all kinds of distractions along the way.


There are several times during the year when when distributors can be tempted to take a leave of absence from their business. Summertime and holiday seasons are good examples. There are always going to be distractions. It is very unwise to take your focus off your goals during the summer or other seasons of partying. You can still have fun doing summer vacation things but never take your focus off your goals. There are plenty of opportunities to advance your business during the summer or other busy times.


You can stay in marketing mode even when having fun doing other things.


Never forget your your destination. That is why it is imperative to set goals, map out a plan to get there and then STAY FOCUSED on the road ahead. Always remember your WHY. Each morning ask yourself, “What can I do today that will help me to move closer to my goals?”


Those of you who are using Young Living Oils, you have several helpful oils that can help you keep focused on your goals. A few examples are: Magnify Your Purpose, Abundance, Frankincense, Envision, Clarity, Motivation, Dream Catcher.


Use oils with EFT to help you get focused on what you want to accomplish in your business. Remember and focus on your WHY.

Here is an EFT Tapping to Rev Up Abundance Energy – Focus on your WHY – Your Network Marketing Mission

Add the oils to your fingertips and tap through the points. It really does not matter which points you tap. Just tap through the points focusing on the words and feelings.

Starting at eyebrow point:

I have a gift that can bring freedom for some and I would love to share it more
In these economic times people really need solutions.
Network marketing is a solution for me and many others.
It is a better way and I want to share it with more people.
Sometimes I’m afraid to share what I have.
I admit it, Sometimes I’m kind of a chicken.
I’m so worried about failing.
I worry too much about what people will think.

Sometimes I’d rather be invisible.
It’s easier in my comfort zone
Yes, it’s easier to hide and play it safe …
but I have played small long enough.
I’m sick of playing small!!
What I have is really great and can really help people, me included!
I choose to remember WHY I am building this business.
What kind of person would I be if I didn’t share this?
I am a walking reward for 10,000 people.
I am going for it now!
Even though I am afraid of failing
I’m NOT giving in!
This is MY time!
I’ve waited long enough.
I am going for it.
I want to share a solution and get paid well.

This is my time to shine.
and I really do want it.
I am stepping up in my mission.
Yes, it feels scary, but I am doing it anyway!
I am letting the universe know that I really do want this.
I am ready to help other people find their FREEDOM This is my mission
I am open and ready to receive more!
I am GOING for it! Yes I am!!

Take a deep breath.

Do you ever find yourself putting things off that you know will help your business grow faster? Sometimes getting sidetracked and going down a rabbit hole of time wasting activity. Even personal development and product training can become time wasting activity if we are not taking action on what we are learning. If you don’t take action, you have NO network marketing business. Action is what will grow your income.

We all we get distracted with time wasting activities from time to time but what if it has become a pattern? What if you find yourself organizing the office or files on the computer. Or, one I have had trouble with at times is making graphics and marketing materials for my team. Those are all good things to do but NOT if it causes you to neglect Income Producing ACTION.

Time wasting activities are a way of procrastinating. Procrastination is always caused by a subconscious fear that is causing resistance to taking action. You can clear some of these fears with EFT. EFT can also help you get moving in action.

Have a little talk with yourself and commit to just one ACTION. I like to do this on days when I find myself struggling with distractions and not feeling like doing Income Producing Activities. It has to be an income producing action (IPA). Organizing your desk doesn’t count as action. 😉

Income producing action would be some contact with another person where there is potential for a business connection, a follow up call, email or text, ask a question and share an oil or a flyer, connect with an old friend, share a drop of essential oil with someone who needs it, etc. There are lots of actions you could take.

Before you do that, why not do some tapping. Here is a tapping script for Taking One Action.

Essential oils that could be used with this tapping: Release, Valor, Abundance, Acceptance, Magnify Your Purpose, Motivation, Field.

Add a drop or two of essential oil to fingertips before tapping through the points.

While tapping the karate chop point on either hand, repeat these phrases, (or change the words to fit your exact situation).

Even though I’ve been holding myself back from action, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.
Even though I’ve been holding myself back from action, I deeply and completely love and forgive myself.
Even though I’ve been holding myself back from action, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

I’ve been holding back.
Blocking myself with inaction.
It’s really bothering me.
There’s things I could be doing.
There are definitely some things that I could be getting done.
Actions I could be taking.
I intend to build a successful business that will change my life.
I know I need to take action if I want my business to succeed.
Income producing action.
Talking to people.
Using products in front of people to stir interest and conversation.
Approaching people and talking about my products.
Something is holding me back.
I find myself holding back.
I need to follow up.
Make a phone call to that new member.
but I keep putting it off.
Why am I holding back?
What am I afraid of?
There is a fear deep down inside.
It’s a little out of my comfort zone.
Do I have a fear of abundance?
It must be in there, so I don’t take action,
because if I took certain actions,
it might lead to abundance.
Then what?
How do I handle all that abundance?
I’m afraid, so I hold back.
I’m letting that way of thinking go now.
I’m letting that way of thinking go now.
I want this business to change my life.
I intend to make progress.
So what if some are not interested?
So what if I make some mistakes?
I will take One Action Today.
One Income Producing Action.
I know I will feel stronger with each action I take.
More confident with each action I take.
One action will lead to another, then another.
I get better with each action.
Most of the learning is accomplished through action.
I’m moving forward with each action I take.
Making progress every day.
Facing my fears with each action and
feeling more and more confident about making progress.
I’m showing up to work.
I am releasing my fears and taking action. One action at a time.
I am looking forward to Taking One Action Step.
I know it’s okay to have abundance.
I delight in having abundance.
I love having abundance.
I love taking action.
I love taking action.
I love being of service.
I am Joyfully allowing abundance.
Gratefully allowing abundance.
Knowing that I deserve it.
I am joyfully and gratefully taking inspired action.

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.
