How To Succeed With Network Marketing

Climbing that Mountain

 

What is stopping you from being successful?

Overcoming obstacles work. This is a change your life challenge. You have decided that you need to do something about your circumstances and you can only dream of having a home business.
What is the hardest mountain to climb? Look it square in the eye and say I am coming for you.
Climb the highest mountain. To catch the biggest fish takes some preparation. You have to know what the fish likes. Study to find out what you need to know. Make yourself motivated. This is what you want and nothing can stand in the way.

How to Manage Your Time Effectively

Many people have full-time jobs or obligations that require attention. Some people are students or teachers and are committed to learning and helping. This we overcome.
Your biggest obstacle you will climb.
Why?  Because you have a goal, a burning desire, a need to be free from the intrusion of those that want to use you for their purposes.

Know what your priorities are and make time for them.  Put your blinders on and block out all the noise and clamor that try to suck you in.
Focus…focus…focus, and know what must be done. Set time every day to do what is needed to learn and develop your web business.
It is more important than your job. It is more important than your volunteer work because if you build this you will be able to volunteer and help that much more.

You are the Biggest Obstacle

Let’s do it

The way you think is who you are. Have a little faith that those mountain obstacles are climbable. No one ever succeeded by thinking it can’t be done. Every success came from someone that stepped up to the plate and took a big calculated swing. He may have missed a few times but each time he got closer till he hit one out of the park.

Think about how you can help others by getting your story and information out there.
Nobody knows everything that you know. Somebody knows a little about some of what you know but not all of what you know. So stop hurting yourself and others and make yourself motivated. Work to learn so that you can grow and change. This will enable you to help others grow and develop.

Overcome Barriers of Communication  

Let's-break-barriers-of-communication-stick-figure
What did you say?


There are ways of overcoming communication barriers between people. When I first took on the challenge of learning web Marketing I had not written any formal communicative correspondence in years. Sentence structure, paragraph structure, and spelling were and are a real problem. With the help of training, the affiliates, and tools (like Grammarly)  that show your errors help you make a professional presentation.
You would not find this out by sitting on the bench.

There are tools, called plugins,  that help you have multi-language websites.
The WA community is very accepting and helpful of those that are not well versed in English. The Wealthy Affiliate community respects all those that have an entrepreneurial spirit and want to better themselves.

How to Succeed in On-Line Marketing

The Lord helps me out of all my troubles.  He has promised to help me in all my endeavors. If I come on any problem I give it  Him and He shows me a way through it .

Did you overcome depression?  Do you suffer from anxiety?  If you know Jesus, no worries mate, because He takes care of it all. When I can’t understand a technical issue I don’t have to worry  because He is the inventor and wants to see me succeed.

 

How to Build an On-Line Business for you and your family

 

What was your biggest mistake? I would just like to throw procrastination into the ring of discussion. There are many fence sitters that sit back to see how someone else fares in an endeavor. With net marketing,  it takes time for you to learn and your website to develop and get recognized by the search engines. Even if a person has to work and his time is limited if he has built his website the wheels are turning. Most likely the fence sitter will never get off the fence because he will always have a why it won’t work stuck in his head.

Do You Know if You Have Anxiety?

anxious-man-picture
An Anxious Man

 

There were times in my life that I suffered from anxiety. It was usually related to finances, a bad boss, or generally not living right. For this post, I took an anxiety test to see where I am now. You can Google search and find a number of tests from psychologists and a test from “Psychology Today”.  They do not claim that it is professional, but it does give you an idea of where you are at if you answer honestly.

I also must give a disclaimer as one who studied Psychology but never obtained a degree. From two tests I took, I found I have mild anxiety that is manageable and that I should be living a satisfying life. which I am.
I went through several periods in my life where the test results would be different.
The last one was when I had a condescending foul-mouthed boss. He did not realize that his behavior caused a negative effect on production. It was so bad I would gag and hyperventilate until I could get my truck rolling and get down the road.

My relationship with Jesus carried me through and I am now in a good place and anxiety levels are low.

How to Lose Anxiety

 

Anxiety can be a mountain that you have to climb to be successful in building your business. As I said I am not a psychologist but have experienced the negative effects of anxiety. I have a list of ways that are said to help reduce anxiety. Some you may find that you already  do as a part of you life.

1. Listen to music

Jazz-musicians-playing-music
A Jazz Band

As a musician, this has to be at the top of my list. I find great enjoyment, relaxation, and fun making and listening to music. Even if you don’t play, listening can take you to a very Pleasant place,  fun place, or stimulate you thinking.

2. Exercise

When you do physical activity it makes you feel good about yourself and has a physical and mental health benefit. The Total Gym is an affordable and easily accessible way for me to develop an exercise program.
You can shop Total Gym at the bottom of this page.

3. Chew gum

When I drove truck I chewed gum off and on all day because the stress went in the chewing process. Driving is very stressful and you don’t get much exercise, so chewing gum came in handy.

4. Have a Good Laugh

There is nothing like a good belly laugh to reduce your stress levels.

5. Take a nap

For me, there is nothing like a good power nap to make me feel good and relaxed.

6. Drink Tea

A good cup of black tea will relax you. Chamomile tea will help you take that nap.

I find that a cup of coffee relaxes me but that is not true for everyone.

7. Join a Church

It has been said that people of faith have a lower level of stress. You have a like minded group of friends that will help and pray for you when you have a need. I know Jesus and

I know He is alive and cares about me like no other. That is not only stress relief but freedom.

8. Burn Aromatic Candles

Good smelling scents such as Lavender are said to reduce stress.

9. Have Sex

This would be with your spouse and is stress relieving. It is found to lower blood pressure.

10. Hug Somebody

It can lower your blood pressure and doesn’t cost anything.

11. Have a Pet

Two-dogs-on-walk-picture
                   Walking the Dogs

As a dog owner, I can verify that they usually reduce stress. You can say anything to them and they are not offended. I taught my dogs to wink. I was scolding Penny for chewing on some furniture and she calmly winked at me. I was totally disarmed and lost my anxiety.

14. Take a Deep Breath

Deep breathing can be relaxing and reduce stress. In difficult situations stopping to take a breath can change your whole perspective.

15. Take a Walk

I like to walk my dogs and enjoy the neighborhood. Taking your time and visiting with

neighbors is a great stress reliever. Taking a brisk walk can get your heart rate up and help your cardiovascular as well as your legs. This reduces anxiety at the same time.

16. Start an Excercise Program

I have a 15 min. program I do on a Total Gym. It keeps my muscles toned, helps my heart, and reduces anxiety.

17. Writing Your Anxiety Out

When you take up writing you can vent your feelings, ideas, frustrations. It also stimulates your thinking and gives you an outlet and a way to express new ideas.

Start a blog and share with your friends.

18. Join Wealthy Affiliates

Wealthy Affiliates has several benefits that combine with some of the other points I have been making. There is a like-minded community of entrepreneurs that care and

help each other out in building their on-line businesses.  They share ideas, tech. info, encouragement, and answer how to questions to help each other. They blog about everything from problems to successes,  helpful hints, to marketing strategies.

You develop a circle of friends and in the process build a home business of what you like and are interested in. You learn to use keyword strategies to get people to view your website.
You will learn how to promote products that are related to your niche. I would like to personally help you if you would like to embark on a great adventure.

    Aside from business, it’s great that you overcame anxiety and stressful time in your life. I’m not much of a religous person but I think it’s great that you have found something that help you get on the right path. But I do agree with exercise being one of the most helpful coping methods. It helped me through bad periods in my life and it’s still very beneficial. And of course, Wealthy Affiliate also helped me get started on my business.

      Hi Joan, thanks so much for your comment. I am not religious either, I just have a relationship with Jesus. In fact before I met Him I had a wall against all religion. Excercise helps me get back on track. I am 67 years old and don’t care to super exercise. Getting my heart rate up and keeping my muscles toned is important. I am at your service,

    Hay, great post! This really will help those who suffer from anxiety. My girlfriend also has anxiety, and it can be really difficult for her to overcome it, and tries to wait it out. But I’m going to try a few of these ideas you mentioned and see if that helps.
    I’m with WA, and I believe it has one of the best communities online. It’s a great place to learn how to start your own business while helping others in the process.

    Great post. I think it’s true that in order to succeed in online marketing you have to overcame anxiety, stress and most of all depression. Depression is the hardest feeling that is one of the biggest barriers standing on our ways to success. Because when you start your online business you first don’t realize that you will have to deal with many difficulties and when you realize it you might get depressed first. The only way to succeed in internet marketing is stay patient and understand that success doesn’t come overnight. It’s a long process.

I have had a number of difficulties and misunderstandings but the Wealthy Affiliate support team and the Affiliates are second to none in the help and encouragement that is offered.

    I’m really confused by all this network marketing jive – at the end of the day people tell me it is nothing more than MLM setups…..is this actually true?
    I mean what is the difference between network marketing and pyramid schemes? Thanks so much for your help as this has been holding me back!

      Hi Chris,
      Multi-level marketing is a business plan that allows members to benefit from people they bring into the business. They can build their own organization. In my view it is a viable business plan. Unfortunately there have been many scams and get rich quick schemes that use this business model.
      A good MLM offers a valuable product or service for an affordable price. Many of the scams only offer more training at expensive prices. There also has to be a cutoff where the downline breaks off so that it is not a pyramid scheme.
      Wealthy Affiliate is not a MLM company because you can only benefit from the person that you bring into WA. There is no downline. WA also offers a free program. The training, community interaction, and the tools that are passed on make it a true bargain. There is no pressure to buy expensive training, or tools. For example there is a free Keyword tool and Jaaxy is very affordable if you want to pay for the service.
      There are no sneaky charges and you can sign up for free, no credit card required, and get full access for a weak to see if it works for you.
      I hope this helps,

      Marty
