MLM Myth #5: “If I’m not wildly successful within 1 year… the company is broken”

“You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.”

– Jack London

This is one of the greatest MLM myths ever told, and it’s always told by people new to network marketing. It goes something like this: “If within 1 year you’re not earning more money than you’ve ever earned in your life, then the company is broken”.

It sounds silly, but the people who believe this are the ones who go from company to company, trying to work out why nobody is paying them hundreds of thousands of dollars, right from the beginning. There are so many things wrong with this picture…

If we just shift our focus here slightly, we’ll see why this particular myth exists.

In truth, it’s all about personal growth.

Network marketing has one main thing in common with every other business you could ever try – you have to put the required amount of effort in for it to work. No one is going to come along and make it work for you. You have to make it work for yourself. The company is the vehicle – it’s all about how fast and well you drive it.

If you have never in your life earned $10,000 a month, why enter into Network Marketing expecting $10,000 a month in your first year? You’ll get paid what you’re worth, no matter what you do or where you work. You have never managed $10,000 a month before! It doesn’t mean the company is broken – it just means that you need to work on YOU as much as you need to work on your business.

That’s why you should jump at the chance of attending any training sessions your company offers. You should try and attend the seminars. Listen to the educational CDs. Read the books. You’ve got to get all the information! Not only will all this training provide the insight and knowledge that will help you develop your business, you will also find you can meet and share experiences and knowledge with other like-minded people.

In the end, the biggest investment you will ever make is in yourself. The more you grow as a person, the more success you will achieve. But we all grow at different rates and that’s why our businesses grow at different rates too. It doesn’t mean some of us are better than others; it simply means some of us learn at faster rates than others.

Almost everyone who succeeds in MLM could join ANY company and succeed, and the failures could join ANY company and fail.

Remember what Jim Rohn said: “It’s not the success that’s the prize. It’s the person you become in order to succeed that’s the prize.”


When you subtract out the sleeping time, commuting time, working time, and time for things you have to do each and every day of your life, almost all people don’t have more than one or two hours each day to do what they like to do. And if they had the time, would they have the money to do it?

We have discovered a way for you to learn how to “Own Your Life” by building a home-based business and we have a system for doing it that is so simple anyone can do it.
