Everybody says that Network Marketing is the best self development business to get into.
Most people who have no business background yet start a home based business, usually have a lot of work to do on their personal development and self belief.
One of the first steps a newbie in MLM (or any other kind of home based business) does is create a positive self talk or self affirmation.
The purpose of self talk is to convince oneself that he/she is successful, confident, healthy, wealthy, etc.
It is a daily exercise in changing your belief system. If you believe in your ability to be successful in growing your business, then you will be successful.
Many people want to be successful and go forth with starting a business, but subconsciously they do not believe they can be successful.
We must understand the law of nature in that our subconscious mind rules our conscious mind! This includes our emotions.
Only the dominant thoughts, beliefs and emotions in our subconscious mind will prevail. Our success, wealth and happiness depend on our subconscious.
The only way to control our subconscious mind is through constant daily self talk (self affirmations) and mental exercises and habits.
- You must say your self talk every single day from the time you wake up in the morning until you go to bed at night.
- Say it at least 100 times a day.
- When you go to bed, focus on your self talk and your goals.
- Actively visualize yourself having what you want.
Many newbies to MLM continue to have a lack of success with their self talk and business building.
If a person’s belief is extremely damaged he has to start his personal road to recovery with very small baby steps.
Self talk will not work if you are constantly creating opposition in your mind!
If a person says:
- I am healthy.
- I am wealthy.
- I am successful.
but has so much negative subconscious programming that they cannot truly believe they are healthy, wealthy, and successful, it will never happen!
It is like the kitten in the mirror being told by her sponsors to “Believe you are a lion!” or say “I am a lion!” But the kitten’s belief is so opposite to those statements, becoming the lion will never happen.
What if the kitten can’t get the subconscious image out of her head that she is stuck in a fishbowl?
For a person having trouble getting around their negative programming, they can say simply
And that is it!
Get the belief in the words into the subconscious first.
Eventually, if followed through with, the person will feel more confidence and belief in their ability to be healthy, wealthy, and successful.
Then it will be time to use statements with “I am…” in them for self talk.
The road to personal development can be a long and winding road for some people. It can also feel scary and treacherous.
You don’t have to do this alone!
Your success also depends on having mentors who will believe in you until you can believe in yourself!
