How Does MLM Success Depend On Your WHY?

Historically the survival rate in Network Marketing has not been good! MLM Success has not been a walk in the park.

The simple and sad truth is that when the going gets tough – most people quit!

The business is evolving and new methods embracing the internet are developing. The idea of "InterNetwork Marketing" is to make it easier to succeed but even so there will be challenges to get through and changes to be made.

No amount of exhortation, encouragement, mentoring or even bullying will help anyone who does not have within themselves the desire to succeed.

Motivation comes from the inside out, and it is your “WHY” that gives you the staying power.


The reason (why) you want to achieve something is far more important than the “How”. Too often we get caught up in the detail of how to achieve something rather than being clear and committed to the “WHY”.

Your “WHY” is the big, earnest desire that keeps you going and if you can nail what your “WHY” is then you will keep on going through thick and thin and any sort of challenge.

Motivation from the inside is long lasting. It does not disappear the day after the motivational rally, or once you have switched off the motivational tape.

Once you have nailed the “WHY” then the “how” shows up afterwards….

Identify Your WHY!

We are not talking about money here. Having enough money simply empowers you to fulfil your desire. It is not an end in itself, just as MLM success is not the end in itself but the method, or vehicle, to get you there.

What you need to do is find out what you really, REALLY want. What presses your buttons and gets your juices running?

Answering a few questions may unlock the door:

  • What do you do with your free time?
  • If you had a 2 month vacation, and money was no barrier, how would you spend it?
  • If you had an unlimited amount of money what major problem would go away?
  • If you had all the time in the world to do what you wanted, what would you do?
By the nature of what your why is it needs to stimulate emotions in you – excite you , anger you or even scare you.

It is important to focus on what you do want but knowing what you don’t want can sometimes help make it all the more clear for you.

Your “WHY” has to be BIG. Big enough that it is bigger than whatever the obstacle is that gets in your way. If it isn’t then when faced with that challenge quitting will be the easy option.

So think even more deeply and consider a few more questions:

  • What do you want to accomplish in your lifetime?
  • What does your family mean to you?
  • What do you want to give people you love most?
  • What really scares you to death?
  • What really excites you?
  • What makes you really angry?
  • What do you love about your job.
  • What do you hate about your job?
These are questions only you can answer!
