automated success process

know who you are and question your conclusions

How can you create an automated success process inside your mind – that’s the focus of my article today and it’s the 11th step in the manifestation process. Well: first of all, I believe we need to get onto the same page as to what exactly I mean with this automated success process.

So let’s start with a definition.
What do you call an automated process? It's a chain of tasks that are performed automatically. Would you agree? So which automated process do you and me and everyone else have and use on a daily basis? I believe we all have nearly countless automated processes that are executed every day. We call those automated processes habits.

So: what exactly is a habit? Something that you do? Absolutely! How about something that you think? Or is it even something that you feel? And then: what is a good habit?

If we use the initial defintion of an automated process, then I think it's safe to conclude that a good habit is something we can use on a daily basis that takes us safely and with 100% accuracy and 100% security to where we want to go. The only question now remains is the following: how to develop good habits?

So: you see, for me, a good habit is something that supports me in my pursuit of happiness.

Right… was that an answer you expected? The pursuit of happiness…? Ok: let me offer you another definition :-)

A habit in general is something you either do, think or believe to be true and valid and necessary. Habits are those ‘inner programs’ that basically run our daily lives. We all seem to know the habitual process that lets us drive our car from A to B, while we listen to the radio or think about the conversation we just had with our loved ones. We learn how to drive a car, but in time – and through quite a bit of practice – we don’t think about driving the car any longer; we just do it. Well: this ‘just doing it’ is habitual – so our habits are (as mentioned) our ‘inner programs’ we fall back onto so that we (or our minds) have more free time to do and think and believe other things.

Does this make any sense to you?
Ok… the example with the car is every easy to understand. But what about all those other habits – good or bad – that run our daily lifes?
What about our habit to not drink at least 5 glasses of water? What about our habit to smoke or indulge in too much alcohol? Or the not-working-out habit? And then: last but not least our habit to dream about this seemingly elusive network marketing success?

You see, habits are not just actions, like stopping to drink or smoke or starting to work out and eat and drink healthier foods. We do also have habitual ways to think and feel.

One example of habitual thinking might be that you absolutely want to have way more money than you currently have, but you don’t see how you can make that happen anytime soon with your Network Marketing opportunity. Or – even worse – you tried and tried and tried to make it happen, but you came to the conclusion that only those on top do make money with network marketing, but certainly not you.

And right there is 1 very important clue which leads us to the creation of an habitual automated success process: question your conclusion.

Let’s stay with the last example and see how we can use this not very empowering conclusion to define a supporting habit.
You see, if you got involved with network marketing let’s say 2 or 3 years ago (maybe even longer), you would have signed up for 2 or 3 opportunities – maybe even more. And you would have followed your sponsor’s advice as to how to get people to join your team. And maybe you just couldn’t make it happen, so you swapped opportunities and hoped that the new one will get you there.

Can you follow this example?

create an automated success process for your mlm success

Let’s just assume, that this process I just outlined is exactly what you did – and there is no shame in it… it seems to be the 1 process we all go through :-) … it’s just to test our resolve :-)

This carrot-chasing process can lead to the conclusion that only those on top make money with network marketing. But here is the thing: if you look at the image above, you see this process, step by step and you should see the person in the middle, trying to grab that carrot (which is just a metaphor for making money with your mlm opportunity). What do you believe stays exactly the same throughout the entire process?

It’s you and your habits! You see, if you ‘just’ keep swapping your network marketing opportunity WITHOUT really understanding WHAT WENT WRONG (if anything at all) with the old one, then you will just repeat the same thing you experienced with the previous one.

So again: what exactly is a good habit? Let’s answer that question in 3 steps:

  • an action oriented good habit would be to talk to at least 5 people every single day. The reason is obvious: you can only create attention for your mlm opportunity, if you give or create yourself an opportunity to talk about it and you can only talk (or write) about it, if you take physical action.
  • a thinking-related good habit would be to think that today will be the day when you get your first prospect interested enough so that this new person agrees to have a look at what your network marketing opportunity has to offer.
  • a feeling-related good habit would be to feel reassured that for as long as you took daily physical action (through talking to at least 5 people a day or writing at least 3 articles per week or something like that) and you kept thinking that today is the day where you finally worked yourself through a couple of No, thank you’s so that you get to your Yes.

Can you relate to those answers?
… do I hear some ‘yeah, but what if…s?’ :-) If you just had a ‘what-if’ coming up into your mind, you still cling to your old habits of thinking that
- it’s maybe your sponsor’s fault because she didn’t give you everything you needed

  • it’s the opportunity’s fault because it’s too complicated to explain
  • it’s the market’s fault because all the good people are gone
  • it’s your employer’s fault because if they were to pay you what you are worth, then you wouldn’t need to look to network marketing to earn more money
  • it’s…. whomever’s fault because… [fill in the blank]…

Does this fact shock you? It should :-) And I actually take no real pleasure in presenting this truth in this harsh way to you, but I firmly believe that if you keep on thinking along those lines, you won’t ever develop good and empowering habits to create the mlm success you are after!

So: how can you change this? By questioning your conclusions. Because your conclusions about your current mlm success (good, bad or ugly as it might be) leads you to your habitual ways of promoting your opportunity, your habitual way of thinking about how you are doing and your habitual way of believing (or feeling reassured) that you are indeed on the right track.

You see, I strongly believe you can only question your conclusion if you know whom you want to be as a Network Marketer. Now this might also sound a bit out there, but think about the following questions:

  • what is it that you really love doing while you promote your network marketing opportunity? Do you like to physically talk to people or do you like to write about it? Do you know…?
  • what is it that you really love to promote? If you had to give up your current job, would your network marketing opportunity be really the one that makes your heart sing when you talk about it? Be honest! The more passion you can include, the better…
  • how much time can you realistically invest in promoting your mlm opportunity? You see, if you hold a full-time job because that’s where the money is coming from at the moment, then you would only have so much time to realize your dream about building up your online business through network marketing. So if you ‘only’ had 1 or 2 hours a day to invest into it, then realistically, it does take longer to create a success compared to a full-time network marketer who promotes an opportunity 8 or 9 hours a day. Makes sense, right? So: if you did network marketing as a side-job, then don’t be so hard on yourself because you are not a Millionaire within 3 months…

Can you see how powerful it is to question your conclusion as to why you didn’t succeed with your network marketing opportunity?

So the next question is: can you see the connection between the answers to the 3 questions I listed above to your good habits? The connection is this:

  • if you feel happy with what you do in terms of promoting your network marketing opportunity
  • and you think about the best way as to how to improve the results you created the day or week before
  • and you took regular action – daily or weekly – that you love doing

then you won’t see the need to jump from one mlm opportunity to the next. You would create the success you are after in time, without doubts and build up your mlm success from there.

Right. Sounds great, right? So tell me: how do you develop your own, personalized good habits to create your mlm success?

As mentioned before, I strongly believe that you need to know whom you want to be as Network Marketer and based on this decision, you can develop good habits.

So here is my suggestion for your next steps:

  1. Take the process I outlined before in this article and find out which limiting conclusions you hold about your success (or failure). Then develop new, good habits. You want want to use Tony Robbin's book 'Unlimited Power' and use it as additional guideline to develop good habits.
  2. Or you could buy my online service ‘Making Money Online is not about the Money; It’s about Staying Away from the HOW’. In this service, I go into more details about to define your automated success process and I put it even into context to 3 different Network Marketer Models – I basically defined 3 different job descriptions for Network Marketers and you could use those descriptions to find out which Network Marketer you want to become.

So in summary: define your own automated success process through habits by finding definitions to what makes you feel happy while you promote your Network Marketing opportunity.
