In my life, a bunch of strange things have happened to me when it comes to trying to get in shape. It’s either I had a ton of money and was out of shape physically or if I was in shape, I was dead broke! Bizarre huh? Recently, I decided that I needed to start running to get more energy and also to get back in shape and shed some pounds. Do you think it has been easy? Do you think that I feel like doing it every morning when I wake up? The answer is capital “NO”. I wasn’t thrilled about running when I first started. The first day I went running was a real drag. It was much harder than I thought it would be.

It’s a mindset issue. You see, you will not get the six pack on your first day of exercising. You will not feel like doing it ever day either. There are days you will look in the mirror and will not see the progress you were expecting. To get in shape, you have to change your mindset. You see, I have committed to running every day from now on. I have been running 3 miles a day for 38 consecutive days. I must tell you this. So far I have lost a few pounds and feel a little extra energy. The thing about exercising is that you may not achieve your ultimate goal in a week, a month, or even a year or two, but you’ll see positive changes far sooner than you might expect.

I have often heard that successful people are willing to do what unsuccessful people are unwilling to do. There is always a price to pay and often times that price includes initial discomfort. I liken performing physical exercise to learning online marketing. Some people think that when they start marketing online that they’ll just try it out for 2 weeks and if they don’t see any results they’ll quit. There’s no question that exercising on a daily basis works. That also applies to learning online network marketing. You have to think long term and make a long term commitment to stick with it and stay consistent in whatever strategies you’re implementing.

Success in online network marketing is also a mindset issue. It’s not about finding the right people, rather it’s about becoming the right person in order to attract the right people into your business. You have to educate yourself by reading motivational books, listening to audio books on your way to and from work, and maybe hopping on a webinar or two to gain the knowledge you need to make it happen.

The interesting thing is that the actions you take in learning online network marketing are easy to do, and they are also easy not to do. If you don’t place some ads today, will that break your business? How about if you don’t place some ads tomorrow? The answer is no. If you place some ads today, will that make your business explode right away? How about if you do the same thing tomorrow? The answer is also no. Now, thanks to the power of momentum, it becomes much easier if you stick with it and implement the strategies you’ve learned.

What you need to do is have a goals program. Set goals that are sustainable and realistic. Most of the online network marketers who are considered gurus today didn’t learn all that stuff overnight. Many of them spent a considerable amount of time learning before they generated their first set of leads online. They travel to different cities where they have their teams to help them build.

These gurus do a lot of 3-way phone calls for their teams. They do webinars, leadership calls and trainings for their team. What you need to realize is that they put in the work to get to where they are. They learned the things that they now teach you and many of them have been willing to teach without expecting anything back in return.

I have to admit that it is not easy to lose weight and gain lean muscle. If it was, everyone would do it. The formula for losing weight is a simple formula though: basically, burn more calories than you consume daily. That was simple right? I hope.  Success online is also not easy either but it’s simple.

You can follow these steps today and start to see results fairly quickly:

  1. Find a system that teaches you how to market online. Personally, I use Netdivvy. It will not get you there overnight. It will teach you how to build a business using consistent strategies that will build a 6 pack business online.
  2. Find a role model you can learn from. This can be found sometimes in your network marketing company or it could be someone you found online. The misconception that most people have is that their role model has to be physically present with them or that he or she has to be someone they know personally. I have a lot of mentors and role models who I’ve never met and they don’t even know that they’re mentoring me.
  3. Maintain a positive outlook to life and be willing to learn as you embark on the journey. Don’t compare yourself with  others. Work on being the best YOU that you can be.
