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.

Success in any kind of business requires doing actual Income Producing Activities every day. In a regular JOB you arrive for the work schedule every day and you have to do the daily tasks or you will get fired. When you have a network marketing business, you are working from home on your own schedule. It can be a challenge to keep focused on the actual income producing activities that actually grow your business. It can be easy to get caught up in doing things that seem like business activities but are really just a form of procrastination. Things like organizing the office or learning all you can about the products and the science behind them, checking in on Facebook Groups related to your business or making graphics. These things are important but if you spend too much time in any area that is not an income producing activity, your business will not grow.

Income producing activities involve connecting with people, approaching new people, talking with people and building relationships. There are lots of ways to do that both in person and online. It’s really not hard and actually quite fun once you get past the underlying anxiety that gets in the way.

It’s the underlying anxiety that causes procrastination. We all have it in some area. In your business it can show up when you feel hesitant to talk about your business or product.
To build a successful network marketing business, you need to step out of your comfort zone.

There are lots of ways to open up conversation and interest in your products and business. Think of it as planting seeds. Make connections and friends.

EFT is powerful way to help with stepping out of your comfort zone and attacking your Daily IPAs. You can tap on whatever you are feeling that is slowing you down or getting in your way. I really love the Tap While You Gripe technique. Just tap and say (or think) whatever is on your mind. Notice the feelings you are having about talking about your business. Do you feel uncomfortable bringing up the product or that you are building a home business? Feelings like that will cause procrastination which will block your success.

I always use an essential oil blend to power up my EFT tapping. You can do EFT without oils but if you are a Young Living Essential Oil user, just add a couple drops of oil to your fingertips and start tapping through the points. Use whatever oil feels right for you. A few ideas are: Abundance, Motivation, Magnify Your Purpose, Valor.

Let’s do some tapping on this!

Jump right in tapping through any of the points.

I love my products and my business and I on the lookout for ways I can share what I love.

It doesn’t have to feel weird.
It’s just a matter of fact.
I use these products for a more healthy lifestyle for my family.

That’s nothing to feel embarrassed or uncomfortable about.
It makes me one smart cookie.
I love helping people have a healthier lifestyle.

Take a deep breath.

Tap as often as you need to. Add any feelings you want to as you shift to feeling more comfortable making connections and sharing the products you love.
This would be a good one to tap through before any social events where you will be meeting new friends or interacting with people you already know.

Releasing the Anxiety of Prospecting

Do you ever feel STUCK in your business? You set goals with the intent to reach them but it seems like it’s a constant struggle.

We all feel stuck sometimes. You know what I mean. Progress seems to stop or be going really slowly. Stuck at a rank for what seems like a long time without seeing progress towards the next rank, or stuck at an income that is nowhere near the amount you have set as your goal.

I know what it is like to be stuck at the same rank for years. I knew I was stuck. I wanted to move to the next rank and I was OK with that for way too long. I actually knew why I was stuck. It was fears around what would happen if I advanced to Diamond. What would be expected of me? How big a change? Will I have any free time?

Whenever you are stuck or finding yourself in a procrastination loop, it is ALWAYS because of an underlying fear. I have had people respond that they don’t have fear about reaching their goal. “I want to get to Diamond” or “I want to earn a 6 figure income.” The problem is, they are not progressing. If you are not making progress, there is something blocking your goals. Underlying fears cause procrastination and other sabotage behaviors. If you find yourself having a lot of “squirrel moments” or going down rabbit holes that distract you from income producing activity, there is a subconscious fear blocking your progress.

Do you know WHY you are stuck?

I didn’t know why I was stuck but once I started noticing my feelings and asking the right questions, I began to realize which underlying fears were getting in my way. Once I realized the “downside” to reaching my goal, I could start working on it with EFT.

We all have things going on in our subconscious that can turn into blocks. If you have been a distributor in a company for any length of time there will be a few dissatisfied customers or distributors. Yup, it will happen. Some people will test your patience. Some will even start a vicious cycle of drama when they feel they have been wronged. It happened to me and it was a very hard time to go through. It was easy to spot the blocks that came up from that event. It threw me into protection mode. Never again was I going to allow someone to put me in a spot where they could hurt me that way. It affected my business building. I was angry and it overflowed into everything I was doing. I started doing busy work instead of income producing activity and got stuck in a pattern of procrastination and sabotage. I was STUCK!

The problem is, when your subconscious is protecting you, it is actually putting a halt to your progress. It means well but it’s not really helping.

We all have this subconscious protection going on. It could be something really simple. You could have had some embarrassing thing happen as a child and something today reminds you of it. The trick is asking the right questions to help you realize what underlying fears are getting in your way.

Ask yourself, “What is the downside of getting to your goal?” There could be a LOT of little things that go in the downside column.

Will I have to speak in front of people?
Will I have people constantly wanting things from me?
Will I have a moments peace from people contacting me with questions, complaining, solving problems, etc.?
Will I have time for myself?
Will I be able to help my team be successful?
Will I become a target for people with bad motives?
What will my friends and family think of my goals?

There are lots of things that could be going on in your subconscious. Ask the questions and then tap on any negative issues.

Here is a little tapping on being stuck. You can change the words to anything that feels right. It doesn’t matter what points you tap. Just tap and talk through whatever comes up.

Focus in on your feelings around reaching your income or rank goal.

Essential oils that could be used with this tapping: Valor, Abundance, Acceptance, Magnify Your Purpose, Motivation, Release, 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 know I am stuck, I deeply and completely love and accept myself
Even though I’m so tired of being stuck, I deeply and completely love and accept myself
Even though I really want to get to the next goal but I am stuck and sabotaging progress, I deeply and completely love and accept myself
