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?”

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.

fear-of-failure2Fear of failure is one of the subconscious reasons why you could be procrastinating and sabotaging your success. When you are afraid to fail, you live a smaller life with less risk. You stay in your comfort zone but no progress is made in your comfort zone. If you really want to make progress with anything, in this case your Young Living business, you need to release the fear of failure and step out of your comfort zone.

Try the EFT Tapping below to get started shifting your fear of success. You can add in any words or thoughts to the script and change it up as you feel the need.

Tapping on the Karate Point:
Even though I’m afraid to try again because I failed in the past, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.
Even though I don’t feel like trying because I have failed in the past, choose to believe I can do it this time.
Even though I have failed in the past, I choose to focus on success this time.

Start tapping on the eyebrow point and tap any points as you say or think the words below.

Focus on the problem:

I am afraid to try because I failed in the past
I don’t know if I can do it, I have failed before
I don’t want to take a risk
I’m afraid I might fail
What if I fail again?
I’m afraid to step forward
I’m afraid to get too hopeful
What if they say no?
What if it doesn’t work?
All these feelings around failure
All these fears that are holding me back
Making me sabotage my success by procrastinating
I tired of trying and failing.

Shifting to a positive feeling:

I can be successful even if I failed in the past
I know many successful people failed in the beginning
Abraham Lincoln was defeated in 8 elections
Michael Jordan was cut from the high school basketball team
Walt Disney was fired from an newspaper for lacking imagination
All the really successful people have failures in their past
They didn’t let failure stop them
They kept trying and growing
I can do that too
I choose to release that fear of failing
I learn from my mistakes
I am making mistakes and growing
I can believe in my success
I feel safe and confident in my continuing success
I no longer fear making mistakes
Bring it on!
One day I will be talking about my mistakes and how my mistakes paved the way to my success.

Do you ever feel like there are times when you can’t seem to stay motivated to do what it takes to grow your business and reach your goals? We all have days like that but sometimes we can get stuck in a pattern of spinning our wheels and making no progress. This can happen even when you have learned all kinds of good ideas and information that, when applied, will help grow your business.


Whenever you find yourself stuck and spinning your wheels, it’s time to get refocused on your WHY. Knowing WHY you want to build this business is a powerful motivator. This is crucial to your success. If you don’t know why you want success in your network marketing business, you WILL NEVER have any success that amounts to anything.


Have you thought about your WHY? It needs to be strong and emotional.


If you have a goal to earn $5,000 or $10,000 a month, that is not a strong WHY. Stop and think about why you want that income. There needs to be an emotional reason that drives you to press on through the difficult times.


For me, I wanted FREEDOM. Freedom from working crappy jobs that I hated that did not even help us make ends meet. I wanted freedom from bill collectors calling. I wanted freedom from the pain of seeing things that needed repair around the house and not having money to take care of it. I wanted to be able to LOVE my life. I also wanted to retire my husband from the high stress job he hated. There has to be more than the drudgery of working crappy jobs, coming home so tired you go to sleep and start over again day after day.


Your WHY is needs to be strong enough to pull you through the rough spots and make you push yourself to do things when you don’t feel like doing them. Think about it every morning and throughout the day.


Here is an EFT that may be helpful in focusing on your WHY:
