Successful people are almost always a little bit uncomfortable. They’re always stretching, pushing themselves, challenging themselves to do better, working to be more consistent, learning something new. Top leaders are always expanding their minds, listening for ideas and concepts they can apply to their business. And then they’re willing to be uncomfortable in practicing those concepts before they master them.
If you find yourself comfortable, you’re not growing. It means you’ve stopped pushing, learning, and stretching. If you’re comfortable, you should be nervous, because in this business you’re either growing or you’re dying. Even worse than being comfortable is being bored. That means you’re actually going in reverse. So embrace being uncomfortable. That’s what successful people do.In this business, you’re either growing or you’re dying. #NetworkMarketing Click To Tweet Embrace being uncomfortable. That’s what successful people do.

Over the past few years I’ve interviewed about 100 network marketing superstars who are million-dollar earners. And I’ve noticed a common thread—10 habits virtually all of these leaders have in common.
Successful network marketers have a habit of vision, of seeing things before they occur. And their vision directs their behavior. Too many people imagine obstacles instead of imagining an incredible future. They imagine rejection, so they don’t get started. Most of what we worry about never happens, but we imagine it and create the self-fulfilling prophecy in our organizations. One of the most powerful forces on earth is your imagination. Make sure you imagine success. When your vision gets strong enough and focused enough, it will pull you toward success.One of the most powerful forces on earth is your imagination.

The best advice these superstars say they’d give to new network marketing professionals is this: Believe bigger, faster. Once you believe, good things start to happen. You have to have faith that good things will happen for you. When your faith gets strong, it will transition into hope, and then into belief. Top earners in network marketing believe bigger than anybody else, and their belief is unshakable. Believe in what network marketing can do for you. Believe in the power of duplication. And believe in the profession.Top earners in network marketing believe bigger than anybody else, and their belief is… Click To Tweet
In a world that’s distracted by a million things—social media, friends, email, text messages— simplicity is an art form. Trainers seem to come up with new systems every day. When it comes to network marketing, simplicity is crucial. If you get distracted by different methods, you end up with complicated systems. And if you complicate things, business growth will stop, because a confused mind freezes. Simplicity is the oxygen of duplication in network marketing.Simplicity is the oxygen of duplication in network marketing. Click To Tweet
Superstars focus on positivity. They don’t understand negativity as a way of life, but they understand it’s very dangerous. Superstars edify their company, upline, product, and the people who are doing what’s right. They spend their time understanding that positivity is like the fertilizer in the ground to help seeds grow. If you allow negativity to spend too much time in your presence, it will infect your organization, crush the simplicity you have in place, and diminish the vision somebody has for their future.
5. Hard Work
Most people consider “work” a four-letter word. People live their whole lives pining for the day they can retire and stop going to work. But network marketing superstars don’t view work as a challenge; they view work as an opportunity to fulfill their purpose, to contribute to the world, to grow as a person, to help other people. They work hard, but they’re not unhappy; they’re the happiest people I know. They’re building their passion. This separates the leaders from the average.Network marketing superstars view work as an opportunity to fulfill their purpose. Click To Tweet
Superstars are not easily distracted. They have a vision and are single-minded in building their business. Their vision causes them to focus totally on their objective, goal, mission—on building their empire. Because they have belief, they’re focused. Their focus helps them keep it simple and creates consistency and persistence. Focused leaders simple can’t be distracted.Focused leaders are not easily distracted; they are single-minded.

7. They’re Unreasonable
No one can convince a superstar that network marketing isn’t the absolute best option for a person who is entrepreneurial. No one can convince them that their system, their simple focus, should be complicated. When it comes to being positive, working hard, and their belief system, they’re unreasonable—they are unshakable. A reasonable person conforms to the world around them. They want to get along, so they follow along. The unreasonable person asks the world to conform to their point of view. And progress depends on the unreasonable people.Progress depends on the unreasonable people. Click To Tweet
Top earners are promoters; they understand the speed of the leader is the speed of the pack. They promote their company convention and bring guests. They promote new products, and a simple daily method of operation. They promote their vision, belief system, and the value of hard work. They lead by example. They’re not waiting for the company to make an announcement, or for their upline leadership to inspire their team. Superstars take the lead, and promote with white-hot belief.Superstars take the lead, and promote with white-hot belief. Click To Tweet
Leaders have a strategy behind everything they do. They’re strategic about how they travel, what they talk about, how they train, and how they promote. They understand that how they show up is going to either plant seeds of doubt or inspire confidence in people’s minds. At their convention, they’re on point and strategic about what they’re going to be doing, what they will communicate, and in their recognition.Leaders are strategic about how they travel, what they talk about, how they train, and how they… Click To Tweet
At some point, the top earners created a bubble around their life and decided to live and breathe the development of their vision and themselves—to create an environment that pushed them to their goals. The programs they listen to and watch move them in the direction of their dreams and inspire them to keep these other habits in place. They surround themselves with the right people. They don’t allow distractions, negative people, or friends who distract them from their focus. They’ve literally dunked themselves in the swimming pool of network marketing.
If you’re determined to go to the top, to become a network marketing professional, it’s critical to create an environment where you are constantly reminded of these habits. It’s worth it. And so are you.
