Women and Business...MLM Frustration - Maybe You Need A Change...

Do you know what I mean when I say MLM frustration? The quote below is relevant to what I am talking about...

"After you've done a thing the same way for two years, look it over carefully. After five years, look at it with suspicion. And after ten years, throw it away and start all over." ~Alfred Edward Perlman, New York Times, 3 July 1958

When I relate the quote to those in the industry that are "frustrated" with their position at this moment it makes me sad for so many....Trust Me - I have been there. With my first experience in MLM someone once told me the only way you could fail in this business is to quit. I took that to heart and was with my first company for 7 years! What I did not realize - being passive and not following what the leaders were doing is the same thing as quitting. I just figured as long as I stuck it out and did my own thing I would be a success. I wish someone would have read me the quote above 12 years ago - it would not have taken me those 7 years to get it together in the industry. I finally did see the bigger picture and found what I was passionate about and made a change - THANK GOODNESS!

Start listing the attributes of the best possible solution to your current situation. When you have a clear picture of what the solution looks like, then you are prepared to go out and find it or create it. Maybe the company YOU THOUGHT, was the best thing for you two years ago is not now...so many people are scared to re-evaluate their situation in the mlm industry. Maybe you jumped into the first opportunity you ever saw. You liked the people and you liked the potential of making money from home but the reason you jumped in was it was the first one you were introduced to. You had no clue there were several thousand MLM companies in the world.

Now that you have been in business a few years - not really with the company that fits your personality, needs, interests you feel stuck...you feel stuck because you met so many wonderful people on the way and you cannot imagine leaving them. But what you have to look at is the BIGGER PICTURE. If they are your true friends in this industry, they would be happy for you and stick by any decision you made.

Another thing to bring into account of your frustration in the industry is this question...Are you not succeeding with this company because you are not passionate about what you are sharing with others? Is that your reason for not taking the action steps needed to succeed? If that is the case...you need to look at what you are passionate about, write down your dreams and set some goals. Then do a search of a company that meets your needs. Yes, some people in your current company will be upset that you are leaving but you need to do what is best for you - your true friends, like noted above, will stick by you!

Think about how much time you spend doing the things you might hate (laundry, cleaning toilets, etc...) Now think about how much time a person spends re-evaluating their current situation and feeling they are in a rut...Most people hardly spend five minutes - instead most people spend the time just worrying about what they are frustrated about but will not consider changing their current situation and taking the time to evaluate what needs to be done to change it. Why not take some time for yourself? Go get a pen and paper right after you read this post. Jot down some things you are passionate about and find out what you can do to change your current situation!
