I love the underdog! The New York Giants upset the undefeated New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII.
The Super Bowl of Network Marketing is waiting for you.
There will be 4 opponents that will try to keep you out of the end zone of success. Self-doubt, Fear, Comparison, and Procrastination. What will it take to get to the top of your network marketing game? Is it your brute strength, stellar coaching, CIA internet intelligence, Iron Curtain podcasts, or overpowering blogs?
What does it take to get to the top?
The intensity of your desire and persistence will determine your level of success.
Close your eyes. Believe me, this is fun. We think in images. If I say frog, what do you see? You don’t see the letters f-r-o-g in your brain, you see a green, slimy, four legged amphibian.
Now, imagine yourself standing in the largest football stadium you have ever been in. You are on the newly chalked 50 yard line. Your muscles are flexing, your heart is pounding and your stomach is racing in your chest. Do you smell the popcorn? Hear the screaming raucous fans?
You need to see yourself in the Super Bowl Of Network Marketing.
Chris Widener stated – It doesn’t matter what your IQ is.
It doesn’t matter what your current resources are.
It doesn’t matter what you currently earn.
It doesn’t matter where your family came from. Nothing in your current circumstances matter in whether or not you can achieve your destiny!
You just started this incredible new business and after a week, or even a day you encounter a screaming linebacker ready to take you down- SELF DOUBT!
You begin to wonder what in the world you signed up for and how you are going to make it happen. Every negative statement comes back to you. “You can’t sell!” “What are you doing? You should be finding another part time job!” “I told you so.” You hear the laughter and see the sneers and you begin to wonder if you are right for this.
To make the most of this, you must say these words, out loud…
I am A Champion! I am confident. I am creating my own footprints in the sand! I am filled with JOY!
FEAR is bearing down hard and is ready to knock you down where FEAR believes you deserve to be. Stand mountain strong.
Do you have a game plan? What action steps have you taken in the first 90 days? Have you studied your company training? Are you attending training calls or weekly meetings? Have you booked your first home party or signed up your first distributor? Action, Action, Action!
FEAR will attack your blind spot, the worst place to get hit. You can’t see it coming.
I encourage you to take responsibility for your fear and your life. No one is responsible for you except YOU! Many of us have a fear of success. We feel overwhelmed because we are afraid to take that step which will move our business forward.
Fear will paralyze you. You’ll find yourself flat on your back, blaming the trash talking defensive end (your sponsor, the company, the product) for your failure. All Network Marketers at some point have been there. There will be dips in the road. Count on it! Make a decision to stop whining, only then can you take responsibility for your decisions, your mistakes, your success. It belongs to you and NOT a matter of circumstances, environment, or people around you
Yell these words-
I am a Champion! I am CONFIDENT! I am creating my own footprints in the sand! I am filled with JOY!
You are one step closer to the goal line and SUCCESS!
COMPARISON is breathing down your neck.
Who do you think you are rushing so quickly down the Network Marketing field?
He wants to smash you into the ground. You just read that someone made an advancement in the company and you’re struggling to get your first team member. How did they do that when you have been in the company for as long as they have and you have worked just as hard as they did?
That just isn’t fair! You’re right. Life isn’t fair.
What are you going to do to change it? Sound familiar? Comparing yourself to someone else will set you up for failure every time. Jealousy is a deadly poison.
Jim Rohn states that the 2 killers of success are impatience and greed. We want it right now and it had better be bigger than any one else’s! Dave Ramsey, financial guru states that we buy things we don’t need with money we don’t have to impress people we don’t like. Now that is comparison.
Comparison will knock you out of the game. Focus on where you are going. Focus on your why, your goals, and your end destination. Put on the horse blinders and gallop forward.
Determine what is distracting you – postings on message boards, yahoo groups, the company newsletter, phone calls from your upline, team members. Whatever it may be, take a break and get away, and FOCUS on your goal post and what you can and will do to get there.
I AM A Champion! I AM CONFIDENT! I am creating my own footprints in the sand! I am filled with JOY!
You did it! Congratulations.
This next giant may be the biggest roadblock of them all. Brace yourself…He’s standing with his arms crossed across his massive chest, a toothless grin on his face, and he is waiting for you to get by him.
Man, he is a chiseled Greek statue. His name is P-R-O-C-R-A-S-T-I-N-A-T-I-O-N!
He has 3 little stooges for friends. Coulda, shoulda, and woulda.
Tackle procrastination now!

Set a reminder in your outlook or yahoo calendar.

Find an accountability partner.
Tomorrow is the today you talked about yesterday.
Yell these words-
I AM A Champion! I AM CONFIDENT! I am creating my own footprints in the sand. I am filled with JOY!
Congratulations! You are on your way to defeating the most awesome of opponents. Your next step – winning the Super Bowl of Network Marketing!
