Opinions, Beliefs and The Conviction Of The Leader

Opinions are easy to change

Beliefs are hard to change

Convictions are so strong it moves people into ACTION!

Do you have an opinion about network marketing? Cool…

Do you believe in network marketing? Cool…

None of that matters until you build yourself up to a level of conviction… and you know you are there when you find yourself taking action!

Until then nothing else matters.

When our sponsors left the business I had a choice… I could’ve quit and had my “opinion” about network marketing and how IT doesn’t work or I could’ve stuck with it because I BELIEVED that I could make it work…

Frankly I wanted to believe, but at the time, I mostly had an opinion… I still wasn’t sure. I kept looking for signs to quit. The more people I found that struggled the more I wanted to believe that IT didn’t work…

… but something inside me fought against that.

Maybe it was the fact that I didn’t want to wake up again wondering how am I going to pay my bills next week.

It was the moments when my friends invited me to do something and I wanted to go, but my wallet said “sorry you can’t afford it”…

Those moments made me want to believe that network marketing DOES work… the challenge was getting myself to believe that it could work for me.

Last post I talked about working on yourself harder than you do anything else.

Today I want to share with you how I built myself up to a level of conviction that got me to finally write down the names of everyone I knew and start dialing!

Here’s the truth… before I built myself up to a level of conviction, I had not called everyone I knew. I was still unsure.

This process was not easy, but it is simple enough that ANYONE who is as hungry as I am to succeed can do it.

It starts out with the people you surround yourself with.

Surround yourself with people on the same mission as you are

Often times the hardest thing to do in this business is to find someone who wants success as much as you do. Once you find them, and you start talking about your goals, and what you want, your opinion starts to gain strength…

Over time, your opinion becomes a belief.

Where do you find these people?

In network marketing, it’s simple… find the top income earners and go where they go.

I have flown across the country just to spend a few minutes with people like these!! (when you are hungry, you ______)

As you hear what they talk about and see how they act, you begin to pick up on that…

You are the average of the 5 people you surround yourself with most

The more you do this, the more your thinking begins to change and what you begin to say begins to change…

I went from thinking maybe this will work and maybe I can be successful to “I am success”… even before it actually happened.

I simply started to believe!

… but that belief wasn’t enough…

There was still something missing.

The evidence was strong, but I was still not taking action. I had a big desire for success. I had the road map and the vehicle… the engine was running and I was the gas, but I was simply not doing my part…

I had to go from Belief to Conviction.

Without conviction, you can believe whatever, but it doesn’t matter, because the only thing that matters in this business is if you take action.

There is no magic secret… I simply kept repeating the process above over and over… took a little bit of action here and there and slowly, but surely my belief turned to conviction…

I got to a point where nothing mattered. I could go up against an army of naysayers and stand as strong as Achilles…

My friend doesn’t see what I see in this business? cool… I don’t need them.

My friend thinks I’m trying to make money off of them? cool… no worries, I was actually trying to make money WITH you, but don’t worry I can do without you…

I didn’t make a single check my first year? no worries… I’ve learned so much and that’s worth way more.

With conviction, nothing stops you, you simply run towards your goal…
