The Seven Truths


The Seven Truths
by Michael S. Clouse

A wise man once defined success as a refined study of the obvious. How
true. Most of what we need to know, say, and do to achieve mastery in
Network Marketing could be easily taught—and understood—by a 12

Why then are we making this business so difficult?

Let's agree to start teaching The Seven Truths of Network Marketing to
those who actually want to create their own destiny, and leave the rest
of the world alone. After all, we're involved in a great industry, with
terrific people, offering unprecedented opportunity. And we should be
proud to speak the truth...

1) Network Marketing is a business.

Networking is a unique form of enterprise, and you've got to understand
the game you're playing. Therefore, mentally consume every page of your
distributor manual the day it arrives. Listen to your training tapes
again, and again, and again. Like a song on the radio, you learn the
lyrics by hearing the music one more time.

2) Freedom by the numbers.

Understand the numbers, and your compensation plan. Start by involving
three or five people, whatever number of legs and leaders your plan
dictates. By your fifth year, the commissions paid on your invested
efforts could well equal a mid six-figure annual income. After that, the
sky's the limit.

3) Attend every live event.

The weekly presentation is part of the process. You need to be in
attendance every week—to see the presentation again. Remember the music?
You need the association, and the environment to showcase your company
for your prospects. True, not everyone attending every meeting earns
$10,000 a month. However, everyone earning $10,000 a month attends every
meeting. Now that's a refined study of the obvious.

4) Work only one company.

Leaders understand this truth, because no man or woman can serve two

5) Have a compelling written "Why?"

Success in Network Marketing is 20% how to, and 80% why to... The best
part is, if your reasons are strong enough, you'll learn everything you
need to know along your journey.

6) Invest in yourself first.

Some people are still trying to earn a year 2002 wage, using a 1982
education. It can't be done. If you want to earn more, you've got to
learn more. Therefore, read all the books, attend all the classes, and
learn everything you possibly can.

7) Decide in writing you'll be here a year from now.

Long-term written goals possess the power to pull you right to the top
of your company. Put your dreams for your future on paper, and begin
building your life of magnificence.

The great Winston Churchill once said, "The truth is incontrovertible.
Malice may attack it and ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there
it is." The Seven Truths.

All the best,
