Motivation Is All That Really Matters In MLM?

I hear a lot of people talking about motivation in MLM and Network Marketing, and how important it is. And I’ve written quite a few articles about motivation and how to keep yourself focused and excited about your business. However, there seems to be this myth out there that motivation is all you need to succeed in a home based business. I find so many meetings and trainings out there are all about pumping you up and getting you excited but they aren’t actually telling you how to work your business and that can be a big challenge.

Athletes focus their training on what they do well, and work to make it great. This is how athletes become great! Sure they will spend some time on what they do poorly, and the majority of their time on what they do well to make it better.

Steve Nash, two time MVP in the NBA is 6’3” and comes from Canada…not really where you would think an NBA MVP would come from. When Steve decided basketball was his sport of choice, which he began playing in grade 8, you would always find Steve dribbling a basketball anywhere he went. He was so committed to be great that he switched from dribbling a basketball at school to a tennis ball, because they wouldn’t let him dribble a basketball in the hallways. Was Steve a bad dribbler? Of course not, he just kept practicing because he wanted to be a great dribbler, and this evident when you watch him play. His skill set is incredible!

Regardless of what people tell you motivation is not the only thing you need to be successful in a home based business. It’s important… but it’s not all you need. What you need is the proper skill set and action to put behind your motivation.

Saying all you need is motivation is like saying all you need to drive across the country is gas. When actually you need a car (your skill set) and then lots of gas to put in the tank. Motivation is like the gas that you put in the car but if you don’t have a car you’re not going anywhere.

Motivation is great but you also have to pair the proper skill set and action with it. Your Skill Set and Action are what will make you money. Doing something, talking to people, making phone calls, setting appointments, performing presentations in your online conference room etc… you can have all the motivation in the world but if you don’t have the skills and take action you’re not going to get what you want.

If you’re thinking about getting involved in a home based business you must find someone who will motivate you and get you excited about working from home but you also must find someone who has a plan and a system that will help you reach your goals. Everybody wants to talk about how great it is working from home but if you don’t have a plan you’re never going to get there.

If you are highly motivated to succeed and have the skill set to put a lot of action behind something, then you will be successful!

Happy Marketing,
