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.

Try this visualization exercise:

Close your eyes and start to think about your goal. Tell a story in your mind or pretend you are watching a movie but instead of just watching the movie, step into the movie and become part of it. What does it look like? How does it feel? Picture yourself achieving it and living as though you have already attained it. Try to get as many details as you can.


Now, as you are visualizing, tap the EFT points. It doesn’t really matter which points. Just tap points as you visualize.


Do this EFT visualization exercise every day. One thing I notice when I do visualization this way is that the images get stronger each time. I find this especially helpful when I have trouble visualizing.


Visualization is a very important tool for your success. Adding EFT powerfully accelerates the whole visualization process.


Give it a try. Hey, it’s FREE. What if it works for you?

Marketing systems, tools and training are important for success in network marketing but the most important success tool is your thinking.


Three mistakes That Can Shipwreck Your Network Marketing Business


1. Not Taking Personal Development and Self-esteem Building Seriously: If you don’t have a love for yourself and a strong self-esteem, you will NOT care enough to do what it takes to build a business that actually earns income. You will not care enough about your dreams to make things happen. This may sound a little funny to some but it’s really important.


Jim Rohn said, “If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.”


Without personal development, you won’t build confidence and self-esteem in yourself and your business. Your prospects will pick up on that.


If you have a love for yourself you will invest in your life plan. Network marketing is an industry that has a high failure rate. That’s not because the business model is bad, it’s because people jump in with dreams of making a lot of money but they don’t realize they need to invest in their success. Investing not only time but money. Yes, I said money! Invest in training books, audios and courses. Things that help you grow your skills, and yes, that includes building self-esteem. As you get more training and skills, your self-esteem and confidence grows.


2. Focusing on the Wrong Things: Fear of failure is one of the big obstacles distributors struggle with. We all deal with it to some degree but we must focus on the right things if we want to get where we want to go. Don’t focus on every temporary setback and bump in the road. Focus on what you want to achieve, the road ahead of you, keeping the goal or your WHY in mind.


Think of it like driving a car and going on vacation at the ocean. When you drive your car anywhere you are looking at the road ahead but you are looking in the distance, not at every bump or pothole in the road. If you spend too much time looking at the bumps and holes on the surface of the road, you can end up missing something really big. You can even end up in a ditch. While you will notice holes and bumps, you aren’t looking at them with full attention. You just notice enough to make corrections in your course, all the while keeping your attention on the goal ahead of you: Your arrival at the ocean and enjoying a wonderful vacation.


Your business is similar. Focus on what you want to achieve in your business and your WHY! Don’t let the bumps along the way derail you.


3. Letting Negative People In Your Life Derail Your Success: This one sort of goes along with the previous one. These negative people can be a bump in the road. Are you going to let them derail your success? This is why it is SUPER IMPORTANT to attend as many network marketing and company events as possible. Some events require us leaving the house but many are available to us through conference calls and webinars. These events keep us going and act like an antidote to the poison of negative people. Negative people can poison our dreams and make us give up.


I’m just like you. I have had to deal with negative people. In the beginning it was a real challenge. My own husband was negative. He didn’t believe we could build a business. Back then I was “spending too much time on the computer.” Today he’s delighted I worked hard on the business. He works with me from home.


I remember one relative telling us to “Quit selling herbs and get a real job.”


We all have negative people in our life. These people love us and they think they are helping but they unknowingly poison our dreams if we let them. We can’t let them do that. Our diligent attention to personal development can help us remain strong and focused on our goals. Hanging around successful people will help offset the negative energy and help keep our vision in view.


Network marketing is an awesome business. Keep moving forward and never give up.
