MLM – The Road To Success

The other day I read a sentence  which struck me:

"You cannot sit on the road to success for if you do, you will get runover"   Anonymous

This is so true, especially when it comes to MLM. You only need to go  and surf the internet and you will quickly realize that this industry is full of hype. Advertising business opportunities where you get not only something, but “all” for nothing – people claiming that they will build your downline if you only sign up. This is weird – just look at the law of attraction in this context – somebody just singing up expecting to have his downline built – doesn’t this equal “sitting on the road to success”?? It is the kind of situation where lazy bodies “road sitters” are attracted and they sit pretty fat if you ask me!

It seems hard to believe that there are people who actually buy into all these offers and of course as a result the internet is brimming full with people who never ever have success in their network marketing business. First they started it with the wrong attitude of expecting something for nothing and second nobody ever told them what to do instead – it really is a situation of “having been run over”.

It is about time that we wake up when surfing the internet. All the parameters have to be applied to an opportunity on the internet which we would no doubt apply when looking for a business offline in “the real world”.

Of course we will read the contract there so that we know what to expect. First we need to know what kind of work we are expected to perform, at which level, which qualifications are required, what the boss will expect from us so that he will keep us on.

And most certainly we will want to know what we will be paid for the work we are supposed to do.

Very likely if we don’t know the company  we will also make some inquiries if they are decent people so that we can expect a job without extra risk.

If only these 3 parameters would be taken into account when looking for a business on the internet far less trouble would arise. Yet on the internet and in particular when it is MLM which is the topic, most people seem to have a magic switch which stops them from thinking straight – what’s more, quite a number of people when questioned regarding these three points will be top lofty and consider you negative and that for the simple reason of suggesting they apply common sense! Isn’t it absurd?

When you have decided that you want to look for a network marketing business the best you can do is to get yourself educated well right from start. This will save you years of failure and frustration.

    It is an interesting concept to believe that someone else would build something such as a business opportunity for you. I believe there would be far more gratitude if you actually build it yourself. Sure others can “help” but, really build it for you while you sit back in a lazy boy chair, on the side of the road no less.
