If there's one thing that is coming ever so clearer to me regarding a factor dictating a persons success (or not) in MLM, it's about a person's habits in life.
What kind of habits that person has about MLM will literally define level of success they have.
Think about it.
What kind of habits do you have in your everyday life? Let's look at it. Or at least write about it.
You're daily going to your work.
You get up, get dressed, have breakfast, drive to work in same manner and route, walk to your office, sit at your desk or cubie and go about your daily routine.
You talk to same folks.
You do same work one morning to next, generally. And then you have a break or two and then have your lunch.
You go through afternoon and then drive home again through same route and then get home and possibly kiss your spouse hello. You have supper and then maybe play with kids or watch television until it's bedtime and then you dream about your desired wants and start process all over again next day.
I ask you. How much do you really think you had, or have, to think to get through your day after day routine? I'll bet not much.
Because it's a routine.
Was it always a routine? No.
At one point you had to figure all this stuff out.
You had to determine when to get up for that new job and what you would do everyday and how you would drive there and when you would get home and when you had to go to bed to be amply rested for next day at work.
Essentially, you had to learn your new day. And you had to learn your behavior to get you through your new daily routine.
After a while, your routine became just that. Routine. It became a habit.
You did it, and you're doing it NOW without even thinking about it.
You're just doing it.
Day after day after day after day after day.
And then weekend arrives and you go through escape from work routine until next workweek arrives.
Your present life.
A routine habit.
That's how we humans operate. By learning behaviors until they become habits.
The big question with all this is what kind of habits do you have in your life today. Are they habits that are getting you what you want, or are they leading you in opposite direction?
This is key question to determining your success with your MLM biz. Let's discuss it further.
I'll explain and I'll keep this real simple and hopefully very clear in understanding...
You see, our lives are about habits. That's way human mind works. We were programmed through repetition. This occurred to us from our birth onto this physical plane and continues to this day.
How did you learn how to walk? Through forced repetition and failure, right?
How did you learn to write anything? Repeating same behavior over and over and over again.
Last, how did you learn how to type on that keyboard in front of you right now? Even if you're a one-finger typing machine, you still learned and are learning through repeating same actions over and over until you master activity you're attempting to succeed at.
Okay, so we know how you get a habit. By forced repetition.
It's not rocket science and you've probably heard it stated like this elsewhere many times before. I don't profess to be originator of this thought but it is crucial to understanding how this comes about and how your mind works to create a habit.
So, let's move on to what happens IN you, or more specifically, in your mind, once this habit...the habit in question is 'mastered'.
What happens to that habit? What happens is, it disappears from sight, and almost from mind.
You see, your conscious thinking about your habit turns from being a thought or series of thoughts that you are repeating to yourself in your conscious mind about action to ultimately unconscious thoughts stored in your subconscious mind.
Okay, I know. Big jump there.
I'll go more slowly.
Simply, as long as you're thinking about action that you're doing, then you're working in your conscious mind. Because you actually have to keep telling yourself, your mind, what to do, you haven't yet mastered action in question. You have to continue to think about it.
You haven't mastered it yet and you haven't made it a habit yet. A habit that you don't and no longer have to 'think' about.
But when you do enter this zone, this habitual way of thinking, habit becomes unconscious. In other words, ou no longer have to think about it.
As Nike said so perfectly many years ago...You simply 'just do it'.
You just do it.
You don't think about it.
You don't mull it over.
You don't stop yourself before you get past starting line.
You don't need to be externally motivated.
You don't need to listen to your doubts, hesitation, and fears and all that stuff.
You don't have to tell yourself anything consciously.
You just do it.
So who's in drivers seat then?
Your subconscious mind.
It's now operating on automatic pilot and allowing you to automatically think thoughts that cause behavior that makes you do action without you getting in way. Or at least having your conscious mind impeding your progress.
How do you think you can drive a car, chew gum, drink coffee, listen to radio, and give odd person bird who cuts in front of you on freeway? And you do this all at same time!
Do you think you just started out driving your car this way and you did all this without ever hurting yourself or killing someone else in process? Of course not.
You had to 'learn' behavior. And as you mastered one aspect of concept of driving, you moved onto next aspect.
Driving car on way to your J.O.B.
And then listening to radio while driving car on way to your J.O.B.
And then drinking coffee while listening to radio while driving car on way to your J.O.B.
And so on and so on. Eventually, you didn't even have to think about what you were doing. You just did it.
It all became a habit.
And as you mastered a portion of that behavior you continued to add other behavior onto your activity of driving until you ultimately were doing all that stuff, at same time you were driving car.
That is how your mind works. That is how your subconscious mind works.
Again, you want to tell yourself something so you have conscious thoughts in your conscious mind. You continue to tell yourself, direct yourself to do those actions with your conscious mind until those desired actions are no longer conscious.
