What to Do When You Are Feeling UnSuccessful In Network Marketing

When I said ‘Yes’ to starting a Network Marketing Business I had very little confidence that I would find success.  I had watched a thriving entertainment business of mine tank after the US economy dipped in 2008.

I had no experience in Network Marketing and was feeling insecure.

Had I engaged in some positive self-talk at the time, I would have reminded myself that I had built a very lucrative New York entertainment company from the ground up with no experience and that I had a track record of success in my life.   The ‘failure’ really came only after something out of my control. I had also made a decision not to rebuild. But looking back, I had over 10 years of strident growth and momentum in that company.

When I was a teen, I brought my softball team to championship as the lead pitcher.

I won out a single position to sing at Disney after auditioning with 5000 other hopeful vocalists.

I had a laundry list of success in my life.

Still, I was beaten down from one recent set-back.

How many of you underestimate your ability to become a top leader in your company?

How many times do we compare ourselves to others and question our abilities?

How often do we minimize our past success and magnify our failures?

How often do we think our past success was ‘dumb luck’ and had nothing to do with who we are or what we are capable of?

How often are we frustrated at new recruits into our business or long term product users who have everything it takes to crush this business but just don’t believe it?


I love this quote from Tim Ferriss’ 4 Hour Work Week

“If you are insecure, guess what?

The rest of the world is, too.

Do not overestimate the competition and underestimate yourself. You are better than you think.”
― Timothy FerrissThe 4-Hour Workweek


You are better than you think.  You are more capable of maximizing the compensation plan and being recognized as a Top Leader in your company than you think.

You have the ability to build a team even when you are feeling beaten down from a recent ‘failure’ or ‘set back’.

The big question is:

Are you applying the training that leaders are teaching you?

Are you strategizing your social media?

I became a millionaire in my company.  I literally told my enroller that I didn’t know 2 people who would join me.  I have tens of thousands of people in my downline now after 4 years.  

A lightbulb went off in my head when I realized that there were people like me (mums like me) who had become very successful in this business simply by making a decision to be coachable and commit time to LEARNING. 

In hindsight, I cannot think of another vehicle at the time that had the earning potential that I am experiencing now.  There was not a job or business presented to me that cost around $600-$1000 to start with a full return policy that could bring me to where I am now as a million in income in 3.5 years.

How hard are you willing to work to earn a life of freedom?  Remember you are capable of learning and applying yourself to leverage this opportunity.  Remind yourself who you are and make a DECISION to take it all the way…..

Here are a few tips to remind yourself that you can succeed in Network Marketing!


  1. Give yourself some credit. – Remind yourself of all of the things you have done right in your life.  Edify yourself. Ask friends why they think you can be a success.

  2. Focus on your abilities – Everyone brings unique talents to the table. What are yours?  Build your business in areas and with systems that draw upon your strengths.

  3. Be Willing To Be Coached – Show some humility and look to leaders and follow their lead. Take constructive criticism and apply it.

  4. Stop comparing- you are unique and special. You will never be exactly like the person you elevate as the IDEAL in your business. You can set a new standard in succeeding by being YOU.

  5. Make a decision to never give up – Understand this is WORK and it requires you to have thick skin and show some grit.  Do not give up the first time somebody says ‘NO’. In fact, go for the NO. Talk to as many people as possible and do not be phased with what you perceive as rejections. Sometimes ‘no’ means ‘not now’!

  6. Get to work – start planting seeds and remain focused on the prize. You will succeed if you never give up, change systems that aren’t working and apply simple systems that always do work.

  7. DECIDE – Everyday remind yourself that you WILLLLLL succeed…


We often overestimate the competition and underestimate ourselves.

 Remember you have the power inside of you to take this opportunity all the way.

Aim high and grab the prize.

You deserve it.
