2) Getrepparttar picture: Once you commit to your goal, take time daily to mentally rehearse your success in advance. Get a clear picture. See yourself as already having accomplished your goal in minute detail. First sit or lay down and relax your body for five or ten minutes. Relaxation is important because it opensrepparttar 122510 channels torepparttar 122511 subconscious. Once youíve entered into deep relaxation, play a movie of yourself as having already achieved your goal. Incorporate as many ofrepparttar 122512 five senses as possible. Find a way to see, hear, smell, taste and touch while running your movie. Practice this twice daily, first thing inrepparttar 122513 morning and last thing at night.

3) Emotionalize your goal: The fastest most powerful system for mental programming is to add intense emotions to your visualization. A simple way to achieve this is to use music as an anchor. Have you ever heard a song that brings memories to mind? Have you ever listened torepparttar 122514 words of a song and felt inspired? Music has an amazing power to create emotions within us. In fact, music also stimulatesrepparttar 122515 creation of pictures in your mind. This isrepparttar 122516 perfect prescription for subconscious programming. Anytime you can relax, create a mental movie and feel intense emotions, you are taking control ofrepparttar 122517 subconscious. If you are serious about achieving your goals find a few songs that inspire you, songs that create intense emotions within you. Next, make yourself a daily routine to listen and visualize. Treat yourself to a better future by taking five to ten minutes every day to simply relax, listen and see. This is one ofrepparttar 122518 most enjoyable ways to program your mind for success.

4) Snap out of it: A years worth of mental programming can be nullified by a few minutes of doubt. Doubt, insecurity, or negative thinking will destroy your success. You must condition yourself to act first on doubt before it inflicts itís damage. Avoid doubt as ifrepparttar 122519 life of your dreams depended on it. Take charge and destroy doubt. An excellent way to do this is by placing a rubber band around your wrist and giving yourself a snap if any thoughts enter your mind that are contrary torepparttar 122520 achievement of your goals. This not only reminds you to maintain a positive mental attitude, it also inflicts just enough pain to get your mind offrepparttar 122521 thought immediately. A good practice is to replacerepparttar 122522 negative with a positive thought. Whenever you snaprepparttar 122523 band, immediately focus on your future success. The key here is to conditionrepparttar 122524 mind to focus on success instead of doubt.

By continuing to practice these techniques faithfully your subconscious mind will begin to take your images as commands. Your belief will grow daily. Things will start falling in place. The people and situations you need to achieve your goals will begin to appear in your life. Solutions to problems will magically appear into your mind atrepparttar 122525 most unexpected times and places. Your struggle for success will end.

Remember thatrepparttar 122526 keys to your success are not to be found inrepparttar 122527 next business fad. The keys that will unlockrepparttar 122528 treasures are held within your mind. You must first see it in your mindís eye before you can see it in reality. Commit yourself to this principle and you will create miracles in your life.

Clueless About Network Marketing?

Written by Cora L. Foerstner

Continued from page 1

RESIDUAL INCOME: What network marketing offers is a way to create residual income, while working part-time. Network marketing is not a "get rich quick" scheme. Those who succeed work hard, but they are creating something magical: residual income.

You go to work, and you get paid. If you donít go to work, you donít get paid. This is linear income. Residual income doesnít depend on you working. Think of an author, who writes a book and gets a royalty check year after year. Residual income, like royalty checks, keeps coming and allows people to retire, haverepparttar freedom to travel, and do other wildly pleasant things.


1. Donít rush into network marketing. Look around and find a good company that suits you and your needs. Donít get pressured into anything. Ask lots of questions ofrepparttar 122509 network marketer you are talking to. Avoid high pressure people.

2. As soon as you finish reading this, run out and buy Wave 4: Network Marketing inrepparttar 122510 21st Century by Richard Poe. I donít know Richard Poe, but I do know that this book explains everything.

3. Find a company and product that you are EXCITED about. Itís hard to sell something you donít believe in. Ideally, you want a product that people buy over and over again, month after month, year after year, and a company with values that are congruent with your values.

4. Look for a company that has been around and proven itself. Someone who has been in network marketing and has experience might take a chance on a new company, but a novice should be more careful.

5. Iíd suggested publicly traded companies. Their financial statements are public, and you can request their financial portfolio. Go to www.morningstar.com, or www.nasdaq.com, or www.valueline.com, or your favorite place and do some research. You just needrepparttar 122511 companyís ticket number, and youíre off and running. If you donít feel confident doing this yourself, find a friend who knows something about stocks and financial statements, and ask her for help.

6. Check outrepparttar 122512 compensation plan. Isrepparttar 122513 commission fair? How often do it pay? Does excess sales money roll over? Does your team have to meet a quota? This could be a big drawback. If there are hefty quotas, you might find yourself buying products you donít want. Poeís book is priceless here; he explainsrepparttar 122514 different commission plans.

7. Do you have to buy, store, deliver products? Most network marketing companies donít do this any more. Most companies provide online or phone ordering, andrepparttar 122515 company distributes its products. You place an order, and they dorepparttar 122516 work.

8. Training is very important. What kind of training program do they have? In network marketing, team members help each other build their businesses. In network marketing, ifrepparttar 122517 people on your team are successful, you are successful.

9. How do you work your business? Face to face with people you meet? Onrepparttar 122518 internet? Or a little of both? This is important. Are there hidden costs in marketing? Ask for details.

10. See if you can find any dirt onrepparttar 122519 company. Check withrepparttar 122520 Better Business Bureau. Are there complaints againstrepparttar 122521 company? What kind of complaints? You can do this online. Know what you are getting into.

11. IMPORTANT: Make sure that you are willing to commit time and energy to building your business, 10 to 20 hours per week. If you have a family, make sure they are cool with this.

12. Donít quit your day job! At least not until you are making more money in network marketing than you are in your nine to five.
