Online Network Marketing Mindset #5

by Del Edwards

Today I want to focus on the way we think about network marketing. First, I want to let you know that if you’ve made the decision, and it MUST be a decision, to venture into the network marketing arena then you need to understand that this business isn’t just some THING you got into. No. This business is a BUSINESS.  The industry has proven itself for decades. This is real and it is a business and any business on this planet functions only as good as its leadership does. So what am I saying? If you OWN a business, you must begin to think and behave like a leader. You own a business.

Let me break it down a little.

YOU own a business. It is a business that belongs to YOU. There may be individuals in the organization who have a vested interest in helping YOUR business to succeed. But make no mistake about it. They are here to support YOU and help YOU as YOU learn to operate and run YOUR business effectively.

You OWN a business. It belongs to you. You have full claim over it. You are the one with the power and authority to do what needs to be done to make it work. You possess it. You are the one in charge of making it work.  If you do not embrace that concept, then it’s easy to let it fail or let it go. After all, if you don’t OWN it, then it can end up just being “that thing that I got involved with way back when”. Lack of ownership equals lack of leadership. Understand that you OWN a business and your perspective will change. You will develop pride of OWNership and you will be more motivated to make sure that the business that you OWN succeeds.

You own a BUSINESS. Now some people fail to get that. Network marketing is real. It is recognized by every legal entity as a legitimate way to generate income. Corporations have been using methods of network marketing forever and individuals have been using the same concepts for decades.  You’re in the industry so you already understand the significance and brilliance of the concept, but so many times individuals forget that this is not a hobby. Hobbies are meant to be done in your spare time when you “feel” like it. Businesses require consistent effort, dedication, commitment and WORK. If you treat your BUSINESS like a hobby, you should only expect hobby results.

YOU OWN a BUSINESS and the quicker you embrace that, the sooner you will begin to reap the rewards that all successful business owners do. It’s important to remember that if you’re in charge, then you need to BE in charge. Leadership is not a group effort. You have to be in charge of YOU before you can be in charge of a business with a team of people in it. Take full ownership of your business, take full responsibility for your results and you WILL succeed.

To your success!!
