We often think it is fear of failure that is holding us back but, for most people, it is actually fear of success that gets in the way of success. You may be saying, “No way. I really want success.” The problem is, your subconscious may be saying the opposite. There is often one or more subconscious fears that are blocking the way.

fear-of-successSuccess brings change and that can be scary. We all feel more comfortable with what we are familiar with. It’s called a Comfort Zone. To be successful in anything, we need to step out of our comfort zone. This is especially true as we are working toward raising our rank to Diamond Level in Network Marketing. Lots of changes come as you rise through the ranks in your company. You want to get to Diamond but there is a fear of the unknown. What will be expected of you as the team gets larger and larger.

Fear of the unknown can cause you to subconsciously sabotage your success. Lots of fears come under the category of unknown. How will friends and family feel about your success? Will they be threatened by it? Will You lose friends?
Will you have to do things you don’t like? Example: speak in front of a large group.

Success in network marketing will mean an increase of income. That can trigger a host of subconscious fears. You may have an income set point that you have running in your subconscious. There can be a fear of having too much income that keeps you sabotaging your success. You may be saying, “No, I really want more income.” But these fears are running in your subconscious. They are conflicting with what you really want.

One sign that this is happening is that you find yourself procrastinating. Procrastination is a way we subconsciously sabotage our success.

We all have areas of our life where feel subconscious fears that show up as resistance. The tapping script below might help you shift some of those fears. In upcoming blog posts I will touch on some common fears that people have in their subconscious programming and some EFT scripts you can use to shift to a more confident state of mind.

It is possible to build a successful network marketing business if you have ADD. You will have an extra challenge but it really can be done. I have a very successful leader in my downline who is an example. She is a Silver in Young Living and presently working towards Gold.


If you are are dealing with the challenge of ADD, you can do it too. It will take a little effort but if you direct that effort you can make things happen.


Generally there are things that you do on a daily basis that you may not want to do but they need to get done so you do them. You wash dishes, sweep the floors, clean the bathroom. Everyone has that. It’s part of life. If you have kids, you have to get them up, feed them and get them off to school.


Most people who have ADD are usually able to go to a job every day. On a JOB, you have a daily method of operation. If you want to keep your job and thus, earn a living, you must show up for work, not only that, you must arrive on time.


It is really important that you get a business mindset. Not realizing the importance of having a business mindset is one of the biggest reasons for failure in network marketing.


The trick is to find a way to get somewhat organized. Here are a few tips that may be helpful:


    1. Set Your Intent – This should be done every morning. Think about your WHY. You should know exactly why you are building your business. Reflect on this and then set your intent for the day. ASK: What do I want to accomplish today that will bring me closer to my goals?


    2. Keep A To Do List – Always have a To Do list and consult it often. to-do-listPrioritize. What are the most important things you need to get done today? Do those first.


    3. Have a Daily 10 Minute Routine – This is where you focus on things that MUST get done every day. Check and respond to email, Login to your Virtual Office, Welcome new members, Read email newsletters from upline. These are also things you do on days when you know you won’t be spending a lot of time on business.


    4. Set Time Limits – This is important. Set aside a set time to do certain tasks without interruption. Turn off phone, email and any other distractions and focus on the task.
    For example: If you are a blogger, it is a good habit to write for at least 20 – 30 minutes a day. This gets you in the habit of writing and produces content that can be either published immediately or saved as drafts for future posts.



Use the EFT tapping clip below to help you focus on a success mindset and remember your WHY.


EFT Tapping Clip: I WILL Succeed In Network Marketing:




Do you ever have feelings of guilt in your network marketing business? Let’s face it, we all do from time to time. Things happen. You get overwhelmed and discouraged. That’s when the procrastination starts. It can become a negative, progress blocking cycle. That’s when the guilt sets in and you start emotionally beating yourself up.


You may feel like you let your leader or mentor down. You had plans to do something with the business but time you start feeling embarrassed because you feel like the upline leader is disappointed in your progress. If this proceeds for any length of time the guilt can grow bigger to the point where you feel stuck and maybe even like giving up.


Let me stop here and tell you that your upline has been there and cares about you and understands that you will have times when your productivity will drop. This happens. Never feel embarrassed. Call your upline and have a mastermind session.


Here are a few things that can cause that niggly guilt feeling:


    Not as consistent as I wanted to be.
    Didn’t talk to anyone about the business or products.
    Didn’t have brochures or other prospecting tools with me to share with people I talk to.
    Didn’t check my email.
    Didn’t promptly respond to someone’s request for more information.
    I haven’t followed up on leads.
    It’s been way too long since I posted on my blog.
    It’s been way too long since I made a video.
    I wasn’t as good at communicating with my downline as I should have been.
    Haven’t been listening to audios or doing training that will make me stronger.

The list could go on but you get the idea.


Guilt is very destructive for your business. It is a very negative emotion that blocks theRelease Guilt abundance energy. You want to be feeling an abundant and prosperous energy when you are conducting your daily business activities, especially prospecting and following up on leads. When you feel guilty you can start feeling depressed and then beating up on yourself emotionally. This can get into a downward spiral.


We all have it from time to time. Whenever you start feeling the guilt, STOP and Forgive yourself. Remember that we all have these feelings sometimes. We all mess up. We all have times when we don’t feel like following up on leads. We all have moments when we are not as communicative as we should be. It is those times we need to pick ourselves up and readjust to get back on track.


It is for those times that I wrote the EFT tapping script below. It’s an EFT script to help you release guilt feelings and help you re-energize.

I like to use Release essential oil blend while tapping on the negative feelings, then shift to any of the more uplifting, motivating oils on the positive section. Put a couple drops on your fingertips and tap tap tap. 🙂
