What is the Biggest Reason People Fail in Network Marketing?
Is it the economy? Their skill level? Commitment? The company failing them? Products too expensive? Comp plan not paying enough? What?
I'm sure everyone has an opinion as to what is the biggest reason people fail in network marketing…and even what I say in this video is “opinion.” But…
My opinion is a very educated one that is based on many, many years of doing this business as both a distributor in the field and as an independent trainer and coach. You tell me whether I'm right on the money or not.
Knowing WHY someone does or doesn't do something is the beginning of you being able to do something about it. If you don't understand the causal factors, the reasons why people behave the way they do, you can't do much to fix it.
You've heard the phrase: Awareness is the first step toward creating change. You can't help a person change or help yourself change until you have a level of awareness that something needs changing.
And…even in the case of what I'm talking about in this video, the person who is “failing” has to voluntarily shift their mindset, their consciousness to a different place in order for their habits to change. This is the BIGGEST part of the process. The shift in your mindset.
I might look at something as simple or hard. Another person may look at the same thing and perceive it to be the exact opposite of the way I view it. Perception. Same thing, but entirely different way of looking at it.
Look. People fail in network marketing for many reasons. There are any number of reasons why people fail in network marketing. And…let's define failure for a second in the context of this post.
Failure does NOT mean that they gave it their all, put their blood, sweat and tears into something…and still couldn't make it. I honestly think that it is virtually impossible to fail in network marketing if you put your all, put your everything into it for a long enough period of time.
Network Marketing is a very SOCIAL business. It requires people skills. You have to be good with communicating with others. Someone who is socially inept and not able to function socially isn't likely to make it in this space. Sorry. It's the truth. If you can't function socially as a human being and be able to interact with others, you're not cut out for this business. It's just not for you. And…that's ok.
But…outside of that one condition, not being able to communicate with others, anyone who puts in the time for a long enough time, doing the right activities, with the right program will see results.
The Reasons Why People Fail in Network Marketing
There are a number of reasons why people “fail” in network marketing…or more accurately stated, don't succeed at it. Failing to me is doing something to the very best of your ability and still not being able to make it happen. Most people who “fail” in network marketing simply didn't really do it to the very best of their ability. Granted…there are people who have feverishly worked their tails off for an extensive period of time and not succeeded. But…those cases are actually pretty rare.
People fail in network marketing because they don't know what to do.
People fail in network marketing because their company isn't any good.
People fail in network marketing because they try it for a bit and lose focus.
People fail in network marketing because they don't have people to talk to.
People fail in network marketing because they have no support team.
I could go on and on…and most of those on the list above are solvable.
If I don't know what to do, I'll learn how to do it
If my company stinks, I'll find a better one.
I'll do instead of try.
I'll take responsibility for meeting people if I don't know anyone.
I'll build in spite of not having a support team.
When we take responsibility for our actions and operate in a full and complete state of accountability, we can only point the finger at one person…the one you stare at in the mirror every day.
And…that goes as well to the BIGGEST REASON PEOPLE FAIL IN NETWORK MARKETING, as I discuss in this video. Watch the video…and give me your thoughts and feedback.
