Network Marketing Training - How Does Network Marketing Training Put an End to the Three Foot Rule?

Network marketing training is an often almost frowned upon subject. After all, isn't the allure of network marketing that anyone can do this and achieve success? Just share what you have with a few friends and family and you will be an overnight success, right? That is the mindset that is often sold in MLM, and the type of MLM recruiting most practiced, but the vast majority of those who attempt this as a business fail. The truth is, without proper training, you will find that you flounder around and struggle needlessly.

Committing to developing and improving yourself and going through network marketing education will only improve your chances for success. Think of multilevel marketing as a true profession. Would you ever attempt to join a brand new profession without the proper training? Who would hire you without adequate training?

Think of this kind of education as an investment in yourself and your business. By knowing even just a little bit more than someone else, you can offer awesome value to people and in turn get people coming to you to help solve their problems.

There are many many great multilevel marketing educational products out there, but there are a few that stand out from the pack.

My personal favorite network marketing training book is Magnetic Sponsoring by Mike Dillard. A corollary MLM training book written by Mike is MLM Traffic Formula. This is hands down the best internet network marketing training package I have ever purchased and used. It goes into how to stop marketing your company and creating a You, Inc. to market and sell people on yourself. It also teaches good ad copy and how to generate internet traffic towards your personally branded web pages.

Another great training book is The 7 Great Lies of Network Marketing and By Ann Sieg. Great free ebook on essentials of the no-sell attraction marketing formula which has become very successful in multilevel marketing the past few years. It debunks many myths regarding old school MLM recruiting and teaches the user to actually market their business.

There are some other very famous MLM training packages out there, such as: Brilliant Compensation and Brilliant Exchange by Tim Sales, Duplication Nation by Randy Gage. Of course, these are just a few of the more well known training tools, but they each have their own unique perspective on what kind of skills you need to acquire in order to be successful.

So, go out there, invest in yourself and your network marketing business as you would a true profession. After all, that is the whole point of the training, achieving success, right?

3 Simple Steps to Re-Wire Negative Thinking

Over the years, I have noticed that some of the most common, most painful, and most challenging blocks stem from thinking patterns. Often, it's not our outside circumstances, our luck, our families or our businesses that keep us stuck. Instead, what tends to hold us back and hurt us the most comes from deep inside - from our ways, in fact our patterns, of negative thinking.

When a negative thinking pattern gets activated, outside circumstance and rationale fade away, and those judgment-based, guilt-laden, chaos-seeking inner voices take over to color reality.

Some of the most popular examples of negative thinking patterns include:

· You have way fewer clients scheduled for the week than you'd like, and you say to yourself: "I just don't have the ability to be successful"

· You're having trouble getting interviews for a new job, and think: "I'll be stuck in this job forever"

· You go on a less-than-perfect first date and then decide: "I'll never fall in love with the right person"

· Your project is moving very slowly, so you conclude: "It's impossible for me to get ahead"

These negative thoughts all have something important in common: They are created around a story that is an absolute truth about the future. Using words like "never" or "always" are good clues that you have become stuck in absolute negatives. For example: "This will never happen"; or "Things will always be this way".

If you are someone who experiences negative thinking, you know how damaging and painful thoughts like these can be. And, the most dangerous part is that they can project you on a cycle that leads you on a downward spiral to being stuck and in pain. I call this The Wheel of Negativity. Here's what it looks like:

  • You create a negative thought →

  • You cling so tightly to this thought that you passionately collect evidence from the outside world to uphold it at any cost →

  • You become so mired in the thought and the evidence you've collected that you become unable to identify all of the positive aspects of your situation →

  • You feel stuck so you act stuck; you don't take any action to change your situation or you take a fear-based action→

  • Being stuck leads you to create more negative thoughts

  • The more you allow your negative thinking patterns to become activated, the more they become habit. They become your comfort zone and your first response to a situation. Without managing and transforming them, your negative thoughts run the danger of becoming part and parcel of your daily life.

    How often do you negative thoughts arise?
    What is the effect that they have had on your life and your attitude, your ability to really enjoy yourself?

    You CAN break the habit of your negative thinking patterns and turn them around. Here is a simple and tested 3-step process I developed for shifting from those negative thoughts to positive ones that encourage a joyful experience of life!:

    1) Isolate and Track Your Negative Thoughts: So often, we move through our days without even being aware the damage that our negative thinking patterns are doing. You can make a lot of progress by simply training your mind acknowledge them. The more that you can see your negative thoughts, the more you will bring them out of your blind-spot where they can do the most damage. Becoming a detective around your negative thoughts will allow you to see them much more clearly, then giving you the freedom and choice to change them. A great tool is to keep a log of all the negative thoughts that come up for you in a 24-hour period, including:

    1. the date and time
    2. the negative thought you had (I'll never make enough money, or I'll never live in a place that I love or I'll be stuck in this job forever)
    3. any details that seem important: if you had that thought while comparing yourself to a specific person, while visiting family, while working, when you are tired or hungry

    2) Create an Action-Based Alternative Thought for Yourself: This is where the "re-wiring" comes in to play. Once you are aware of your negative thoughts and how they function, you then have the freedom to create new, positive propelling thoughts for yourself. For each of the negative thoughts on your log, write down a replacement goal along with a concrete baby action step that will help reach your goal. Here are some examples:

  • I'll never make enough money → I want to earn more money than I do right now; I will reach out to 5 new potential clients each week

  • I'll never live in a place that I love → I want to improve my living conditions; I will look into fixing up my apartment or what else is on the market right now

  • I'll be stuck in this job forever → I would like a job that fulfills me; I will revise my resume so that I can attract a position that really makes my heart sing

  • 3) Have a Gratitude Attitude: This is the final step to re-wiring negativity, and it's a crucial one. Remember to acknowledge all of the things that are going right! You'll be amazed at what a shift in your thinking that can make!

    Following these three easy steps will move you well on your way to freeing yourself from the negative thinking patterns that keep you stuck, and propel you onto the road of realizing and achieving your goals!

    Do You Have Paralysis by Analysis Symptoms?

    Note: Here is a great article by Zack Miller. If you are considering a home business, this is a must article to read first. Thanks Zack!


    Sit back and let’s take a walk back in history. Let’s examine some of our history’s greatest scientists, inventors and manufacturers. What type of men were they? Were they the type of people to just dabble in their work? Did they sit around and plan to plan their plan’s of attack? No, for if they did, Henry Ford would have never build a car and manufactured it. Thomas Edison would have never invented the filament for the light bulb or the Edi phone. Benjamin Franklin would have never discovered electricity and the list goes on. Now I am sure someone would have invented and discovered these things some where down the road. However these men are know through out the United States and even the world. They were some of the wealthiest people in that day and age.

    These men were not lazy. They were driven scientists, inventors and pioneers of there time. However, not every researcher is an expert inventor, or cutting edge pioneer. The Academic Community is filled with researchers that conduct research which never get farther than their blueprints and the lab doors. That’s not the case with every researcher. A small amount does what to free the world with cures and inventions. However the majority of researchers do get caught up in the analysis by paralysis. They become victims to the mundane day after day of busy work. Unfortunately, they can never break free from it and never advance in their careers.

    Business people are not immune to this factor either. They on the other hand will start doing research for something that they are interested in getting involved in. This is where analysis by paralysis will set in. They will get so consumed by their research of understanding how they can work it. They will start reading more and more, clicking here on a website and there on another website. Then before they know it they are way off topic and have information overload. They feel the business of researching is helping them move forward in achieving their goals, but it’s not. Three months go by and the research becomes the end, instead of a means to an end.

    This repeatedly happens to the new entrepreneurs who want to start a work from home business. Online internet business opportunities are becoming more and more popular these days. However most fall prey to the analysis by paralysis, few ever get started and take the necessary actions for success. The research piles up, but nothing ever changes. And nothing ever improves. The people that do take action become the veteran entrepreneurs. The ones making the big buck, living their lives the way they want. Driving nice cars and living in beautiful home. Doing want they feel like doing stress free for the rest of their lives.

    If you're thinking about becoming an internet entrepreneur, yes of course you will want to do your due-diligents. Make sure you find a system that works and is right for you. But don't stop there. You have to take decisive action as well. Remember, do one positive action a day for your business and in ninety days. You will definitely have your business on the right track. Sometimes moving forward requires a leap of faith. Don’t be scared to fail. Just make sure you are failing forward. If you know that there are problems in your life that need to be solved, don’t be that person that wants to rationalize and self-justify them. You want to be the person that, Takes Action.
