Faking it until making it

When I first began to build a team of distributors I had a mental block. I wanted to help others succeed, but I hadn't yet succeeded myself. Did you feel the same way? Or maybe you are feeling "the feeling" right now.

You must realize that we all start somewhere and our profession isn't any different. Lawyers, doctors, teachers all spend years in college preparing. Home Business Owners aren't any different.

So, my advice is to don't let this stop you. Realize the most successful people and MLMers started at point A too. Rely on your sponsor, your mentor and your team in the beginning.

Focus on the activities that you haven't completely mastered. If there is something you just don't get,work on it, study it, and know it will become second nature eventually.

Study those and follow those who you want to be like. And know it's okay to go outside your organization to do that. I still study and follow all kinds of MLMers.

And know that success is different to different people. Small success leads to big success. Success might be contacing 5 friends or family members. Maybe it's selling $100 of retail or maybe it's completing your first blog post. These steps are all a huge part of your long term success. So, don't sell yourself short.

Helping others is a huge part of succeeding in this business. If you are genuinely interested in doing just that, your team will grow.

BELIEVE Success!
