When you got started in your opportunity, were you aware of what it took to really be successful? Of course there are all levels of distributors going in and out of opportunities every day, but the even mildly successful ones all have some key qualities in common. The true leaders of our industry practice disciplined daily action, think and believe a very specific way* as well as lead by example.

Really making it and earning a consistent income that allows you to not only work out of your home but live a lifestyle of comfort where money pressures don’t exist takes:

  • Desire
  • Commitment
  • Determination
  • Persistence
  • Integrity
  • Passion
  • Heart
  • Consistency
  • and those are just to name  a few!

Yes, You are able to take vacations, do the things you want, when you want, where you want. It’s awesome! In order to make this happen, it’s necessary to make a solid commitment to your business, and do a CONSISTENT “handful” of DAILY activities, as well as learning to lead passionately, as if your LIFE DEPENDS ON IT. You must be meeting, contacting, inviting, and exposing prospects regularly. As long as you always have people in your “pipeline” you’re ok. If you don’t, you’re close to out of business.

Your opportunity should be in your heart and show through you like sunshine! Why? It shows because you truly believe what you have is the BEST! As your group grows, you develop leverage, and you maintain a greater leadership role, in which you will do presentations to larger groups to leverage your valuable time. In the following article you’ll learn more about the benefits!

*Leaders condition themselves with daily personal development, and by collecting material to pass on to their group via email, blog posts, podcasts, webinars and live meetings. Our files are loaded with fantastic articles we have collected on leadership, success principles, prosperity thinking and network marketing training. Here is one I’d like to share with you, by one of my favorite authors!

The Irrefutable Laws of MLM Success

By Network Marketing Legendary Leader and Author of “Mach II with Your Hair On Fire”  Richard Bliss Brooke

1. Use and Love Your Product

Although in order to build a large network you must focus on enrolling others in the opportunity, a large portion of your credibility and integrity in doing so will be your passion for your products. The more you love them, the more you will talk about them and the more your whole network will use and sell them.

2) Own the Concept of MLM

Most prospects have a strong opinion about this concept. They own their perception of what it is. They have conviction about it. If you are weak on your ownership of MLM, they will influence you instead of you influencing them. One too many times of them influencing you and you are out of the game. You must have some successes – and have them quickly – to shore up your confidence. Study everything you can find on exactly how and why MLM is an extraordinary wealth-building concept. Study those who have done it. Master their stories and their strategies. Become a pied piper of “The Four-Year Career™.”

3) Learn to Believe That Everyone Is a Prospect

They don’t think they are. They are probably not even looking for anything. But ask yourself this question: If everyone knew what you knew, would they get involved? The answer is: of course. So what’s missing? They just don’t know about it. What if you could let them peek into your mind and into your heart to see it the way you see it? Would they get involved? Yes, most of them would; and the ones who would not would pass in a way that championed you (not rejected you) and appreciated you for offering.

4) Ask Easy Curiosity Questions

The more you know about your prospects, the easier it is for you to design an offer they will not choose to refuse. Find out what is important to people. What do they love? What do they want more of in life? What do they want less of? Start with where they live (if you don’t know). What do they like about it? What don’t they like about it? Where would they live if they could move? What is holding them back? Ask about their work. How long have they been doing it? What do they like and dislike about it? What is holding them back from doing something they love?

5) Ask Them to Imagine

Walt Disney was probably the last one to inspire them to do so. It is our ability to imagine something that is not actually present in our lives that allows us to become inspired. Imagining a more peaceful, fun-filled, loving, abundant life changes our body chemistry immediately, whether we want it to or not. Imagining something specific that we like and don’t now have gives us a positive energy (motivation) to act; to choose to prioritize, to change and to embrace something like a new business that just five minutes ago we would have sworn we would never do. Ask them to imagine getting a check for $1,000 (or whatever amount you have learned will motivate them) every month like clockwork.

6) Show Them the Way

Once someone is motivated to move, they will take direction. Why not? Your wisdom, experience and position in the organization is what they need to get what they want. Take advantage of your posture and show them exactly what they need to do. Show people whom they know that can do well. Show them their plan. Show them their money. Show them what they must do to get their money. If you don’t show them, they will not do what they need to do and you have wasted their time and yours.

7) Wait For No Man or Woman

Make unreasonable requests. This will sort out who will work with you and who will not. You must ask people to do what must be done. Stretch them. Give them the opportunity to succeed or fail out of choice versus merely decaying over time right in front of you. Some people would rather whine than work. They would rather tell stories than succeed. They would rather keep you waiting on them as they “get around to it.” These are the vampires of MLM. They will suck the life out of you with their procrastination and excuses and brilliant ability to find ways for things not to work. It is much easier for them to justify their commitment to mediocrity if you stay down with them. Cast them off. And if they happen to be friends and family, keep them as such – and out of your business.

8) Manage Your Motivation

Motivation is the secret to success. When you are on fire about the inevitability of your quest, you will be enthusiastic, courageous, energetic, persistent and creative. These are the fundamentals of getting things done and attracting the things you need. When you are in a funk, you repel what you need and you do just the opposite actions from what you need to be doing. When you are on fire, success is easy, natural and fun. You get lucky and stay lucky.

9) Get Your Car Over the Hill

There is a lot of inertia in launching a network. It is like pushing a car up a hill. It takes proportionally far more energy just to get it rolling than at any other time, and it takes a continued Herculean effort to keep it going uphill. And what happens if you stop to rest? You get run over and have to start over. What happens when you stay after it and do whatever it takes to get to the top of the hill? It starts rolling on its own – and it would take another Herculean effort just to stop it.

10) Lead Like Your Life Depended On It

And the rest of your life – the part you may have been missing up to now – does depend on it. In a successful network marketing career, first comes massive action and development, then comes massive money and then comes . . . life beyond money. A life where you are present to those you love; life with the freedom to do what you want, where you want, with whom you want and the peace of knowing that you have crested the hill, and although there will still be bumps in your road, you are on the good slope. MLM is like herding cats. Your job is to inspire a whole bunch of people to do something they are not normally inclined to do on their own and keep them doing it – thousands of them. Imagine herding thousands of cats to the Promised Land. You would need to be one heck of a trail boss, and you would also need a lot of good hands to help you. Your leadership and your ability to inspire and develop it in others will determine how far you go and how self-sustaining it is when you get there.

Network marketing is a brilliant career choice whether you choose it the age of 20, 40 or 80. Done smartly, you can be done in four years – and then you get to design your life beyond money: dreams found.

Water To Live

by limitlesslaura

The amazing human body is an intricate machine, designed primarily to function on water and minerals. Every building, sustaining and healing process that happens inside the body… happens with water and specifically a properly hydrated body. To go one step further, the optimal function of our bodies or “true health” can be achieved by the kind of water we consume, as all water is NOT created equal.

The human body is made up of more than 70% water. The blood is more than 80%, The brain more than 75%, and the liver is an amazing 96% water! Did you know that your eyes are 75% water?

The function of every cell in the body is controlled by cellular communication through the nervous system from the brain. Nerves as well as the entire cell network in reality, are an elaborate system of tiny waterways.

In just the last decade, medical science has begun to focus more on the tremendous healing ability of the body and how much that ability depends on water. The body instinctively knows how repair and sustain itself and in its every effort, water is the key.

When the body is “dehydrated” or lacking the necessary water to function, LIFE can literally cease to exist. The thing that many people don’t know is that when you are at the point of “feeling dehydrated” or displaying symptoms of extreme thirst, headache, dry skin, dry mouth, fatigue etc..you are WAY past the point of proper hydration levels for your body. What this means, is that if your body has to warn you, it’s most likely serious!!!

How much water should you be drinking? Natural health professionals suggest half your body weight in ounces per day. So if you weigh 120 pounds, you would drink 60 oz per day,  or about a half a gallon.

Water is Just Water..Right?

The type and quality of the water we drink is equally as important as the amount. We all know that hydration is important, but have you ever investigated the difference between the different types of drinking water or liquids out there? You may be surprised at what you will find out.Tap water is certainly affordable, but may contain high levels of chlorine as indicated by studies by the Environmental Working Group. Many bottled waters have been found to be nothing more than pricey packaged tap water, and not necessarily held to the same testing standards, not to mention the amount of plastic waste. You may be missing out on many natural minerals and nutrients that are often lost in the purification process.

Kangen water has become an excellent alternative for not only hydration, but achieving health goals. Primarily, with smaller molecule clusters than ordinary waters, every nook and cranny of your body will become hydrated. Unwanted contaminants are filtered, leaving the necessary minerals and producing an alkaline, antioxidant environment.

What is Micro-Clustering ?

The  importance of proper hydration can not be over-emphasized. Our bodies are approximately 70% water, but the liquids we are consuming may not be adequately hydrating us. Many people avoid regular waters because of the taste or that “bloated” feeling they experience.Drinking ionized alkaline water is more readily absorbed by the body, reducing that feeling, and increases the “drinkability” due to the improved taste many people experience.

Alkalinity

Kangen Water® is slightly alkaline, with a pH of 8.5-9.5. Enagics certified innovative technology uses the process of electrolysis to generate alkaline drinking water, along with 4 other waters. Instead of nourishing your body with acidic and sugary beverages, you should be hydrating with clean, ionized alkaline water every day.

Free Radical Scavenging

Ionized alkaline water has been demonstrated to be an anti-oxidant free radical scavenger supporting the health and wellness of bodily organs. ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential is the ability for the water to remove existing oxidation, as well as prevent future damage in the body.

Detoxification with Kangen water

Water is the universal solvent that our bodies rely on for flushing toxins and waste products from the body. With its negative oxidation-reduction potential (ORP) and great taste, you can count on ionized alkaline water such as Kangen Water® to aid in the neutralization of free radicals and address all of your body’s hydration needs.

No matter what kind of water you choose to drink, it’s vital that you shower your system constantly with the pure, clean and healthy hydration that only WATER will bring to your PRECIOUS human body!

Contact me directly to learn more. The internet is full of misinformation and lies from companies who are looking to sell you a greatly inferior machine. If you do research the internet remember “caveat emptor” May the buyer BEWARE.
