Back in 2008 when I first come across this network marketing malarkey even back then the industry standard of failure was at 97%. That’s 97% of people that joined this industry fail and give up within the first 90 days. A very sad statistic but still very true, and did you know that there are over 100 million people around the world involved in this great industry?
So that’s 97 million people turning to this industry for help and dreaming of a better lifestyle only to crash and burn. Why is this do you think?
I want to tell you my thoughts on this affair. I get it when people come across network marketing for the first time they get sucked in just like I did. I mean the thought of residual income and getting paid for doing nothing sounds good to anyone.
Just join and get 5 people and show them how to get 5 people and so on. You know how it goes. Lol

When in all honesty it’s actually nothing like this. Your upline tells you to build a list of your friends and family and work colleagues etc… only to get laughed at and avoided.
I know I’ve been there.
Why People Fail In Network Marketing
My first company I joined I didn’t even know it was a network marketing company, heck I’ve never even heard of network marketing before 2008.
This was when I started looking for ways to earn money online, entered my details into someone’s website and ended up joining my first deal. Like the industry standard claimed, I lasted in that deal for 90 days and jumped ship.
Why I think I failed back then and why you’re probably failing now, you don’t believe in yourself, you don’t believe you can do it, you don’t believe in this industry and your mindset isn’t right.
Another thing that I was slow to recognise back then was I joined a network marketing company on the internet. My sponsor was an old boy called Bill Perrins from New Zealand and he was telling me to build a list of friends and family and all the old school, traditional methods of marketing.
And he sponsored me on the internet.
Follow People Who Are Already Getting Results You Want
For 4 years I was being thrown from pillar to post by my so called mentors telling me to do what the guy in the last company told me to do, build a list.
It wasn’t until 2012 I finally recognised a pattern. Lol
I am finding all these guys on the internet, so why not try to learn how to market online, I thought.
So this is what I did, I got to work and started watching other people what they were doing. That’s when I came across mentors that were doing what I wanted to do, market online.
I purchased the products they said I needed and duplicated what they told me to do and sure enough I finally started succeeding online.
For 4 whole years I was single minded trying to do what my old uplines were telling me to do. Build lists and market the traditional ways even though I knew this wasn’t working and in all honesty it wasn’t me.
I’m not the sort of person that can go up to strangers explaining my products and business model.
Working my business online was more me even though I didn’t know what I was doing until I found people that would show me.
I believe people fail because they get given the wrong information or out dated information or when people finally get given the right information they fail to follow through with it consistently.
The Truth Why We Fail
I’ve joined things in the past online and been given the step by step blue print of exactly how 6 and 7 figure earners build their business and I’ve still failed and it was down to my mindset of that won’t work for me or I can’t do that.
Where in all honesty I was just not ready at that time as my mindset wasn’t right or I thought I wanted the success but really I was stuck in my comfort zone.
You know what changed for me?
Myself and my wife were struggling financially and I thought instead of sitting on my ass every night watching crap on TV being selfish, I could actually start getting myself out of this financial swamp I was starting to drown in.
There’s nothing worse than watching ourselves struggle whilst watching everyone else around you succeeding with the knowledge you already hold but are lacking action through laziness.
I mean why struggle these days when we have access to the internet. There are no excuses no more so the only thing holding you back from succeeding is you.
Stop Being A Lazy Ass!
You can either try and find the right information out there for free but you really have to know what you are looking for in the first place and there is that much conflicting information out there in internet land it’s hard to know who to listen to.
