In order to achieve network marketing success you must work your business from the back to the front. In other words and you’ve heard it before, you must begin with the end in mind. Take a look at the compensation plan or marketing plan from your company and begin immediately building your business with the top or leading position in mind. Once you begin to understand exactly what the qualifications are you have to work to make it happen.

Network Marketing Success Starts With Understanding the Comp Plan

Understand that when you decide to work your business from the top position down, you have made the first step that would put you on the path to reaching it. There is a saying, and the first time I heard it, I was at leadership training with Gloria Mayfield Banks, a top producing National with Mary Kay and Joanne Barnes, another top producing Mary Kay National and that saying is, “Inherent in the seed of the tree is the tree.” What it means is simply this: Before a tree is planted, it is a seed, but when you plant the seed in the soil, is it not already a large oak tree?

Indeed, it is. Even before it was watered and it bloomed, it was a tree, but in the form of a seed, most people can’t see it as being a large beautiful oak tree that will provide lots of shade. Based on this analogy, isn’t that seed (you) already at the top position of the plan? The answer is Yes. When you decide to go all the way to top, you must begin to act as if you’re already there. You already are who you were meant to be or who you’re going to be. It’s just a matter of you deciding to walk in your destiny.

When you think about it from that perspective, you’re already a National Vice President or Regional Vice President or Sr. RVP  or whatever that top position is in your plan. It  doesn’t matter whether the documentation has caught up with you or not, that shouldn’t stop you from beginning to act like that top performer.

Network Marketing Success Leaves Clues

If there is someone currently at the top position in your network marketing company, begin to model that person. The beauty about this industry is that you do not have to re-invent the wheel, you can just look at the actions of those who have already made it and duplicate their success. And when you duplicate them, you have to duplicate just about everything.

Ask yourself, what kind of car does the top producer drive? What kind of clothes do they wear? How do they speak? What kinds of things do they constantly talk about or promote? Pay close attention to these factors because success leaves clues all over the place and you want to pick up on every clue out there so you can duplicate it.

Copying someone is the highest form of flattery in this world, so trust me when I tell you that if you copy someone in network marketing who has had a tremendous amount of success, you will certainly not create an enemy: what you will create is a tremendous amount of wealth for yourself. It is powerful, but don’t believe what I say, try it for yourself.
