focus_on_successWe live in a society now where everyone wants everything yesterday. A lot of network marketers therefore want to see their downline growing by leaps and bounds within a week or two. They want to see the big residual checks coming in the first month, when they haven’t even put in enough time to get a residual anything…

I often get frustrated network marketers…some in my downline, some not…coming up to me telling me that they’re business isn’t growing the way it’s supposed to be, or the way they want it to be.

But after a few questions I realize what the problem is right off the bat because I’ve seen it hundreds of times. The good part is that often times once I spot this problem with those in my own downline and we do the work to fix it, we see some really great results in a couple months time.

So what’s the problem?

The problem is that most network marketers aren’t doing the work that needs to be done on a CONSISTENT basis.

You see, to see success in network marketing there are only a few foundational things that it takes to be done daily on a consistent basis. The problem is that most people try like heck to over-complicate this business and make it much harder than it is. They add dozens of unnecessary steps to their marketing efforts, until they’ve got so many that there’s not enough time in one day to do them all..

It’s very much like martial arts. You’ve probably heard of Bruce Lee. Most people think of Bruce as just a movie star from the 70’s but what they don’t know is that Bruce Lee was actually a huge part of the martial arts world, and actually developed his own style of martial arts called Jeet Kune Do.

Well the basis of Jeet Kune Do is simplicity. Bruce knew that all of the showy kicks and spins of traditional kung fu and karate were useless. But he knew that the foundational moves of these styles were very useful when it came to actually fighting.

Bruce believed that minimal movement, but making those moves count, without all of the showmanship would win a fight every time over all the fancy dancy stuff, and so developed his style using many of the foundational moves of the various types of martial arts. He proved his theory over and over by challenging anybody who thought that there art was better than his.

So what does martial arts have to do with Network Marketing?

A lot actually. You see the greatest martial artists are the ones who constantly and consistently practice and perfect the few foundation principals. Each and every day they might do the same 4 or 5 punches and kicks for hours at a time, each time perfecting those things.

This is what you need to be doing with your network marketing business. You need to be doing just the few foundational principals of the business, and you need to do them over and over each and every day until you become successful.

The problem is that these things may seem boring to you at first. And when you’re just learning you may not be great at them. But overtime, if you do them each and every single day, these things will eventually become second nature to you and you’ll be able to do them in your sleep. Not only that, you’ll be able to do them so well that you’ll begin to see a huge spike in your results.

It’s the cumulative effect of these things that builds a long standing and solid network marketing business.

Not jumping around from one thing to another, doing a little bit of this and a little bit of that.

You should sit down and figure out what are the 3 or 4 things that make you the most money in this business. You should prioritize these things, and then write out a sensible schedule that allows you to get these things done each and every day like clockwork, even if you’re only doing this part-time.

If you’re limited on time then throw everything else besides those 3 or 4 things out the window until you start getting more time because of your success.
