  • Why We Are Failing

    I write about Network Marketing and creating wealth here on this blog, occasionally touching on why so many fail at it despite lofty goals and high intentions. The failure part can be seen as a big subject with lots of reasons but if it can be simplified to a large degree. I think it could be expressed in these words:

    There is a disconnect between what is believed and what is done.

    By most professional estimates up to 98% of those who call themselves Network Marketers are not achieving their goals. Oh, and by the way, so many economies are in serious, serious trouble. Do you think there may be some correlation?

    Witness the following screenshot and a bit of text from an email I received this morning:

     The writer of those words was a member of a Valencia University economics class. The professor, Jack Chandliss, asked the class to write an essay on what the American dream means to them, and what they want the federal government to do to help them achieve that dream. Out of 180 students participating, only about 10% wanted the government to leave them alone and not tax them too much, but a whopping 80% wanted the government to provide pretty much the whole dream thing wrapped in a tidy bow – including free college tuition and health care, jobs, even the down payment on their future homes, money for retirement and hard cash, taken in the form of taxes from rich people.

    The point here is not complex, but it is important.

    With the apparatus of state education over many years serving to bamboozle the populace into the hardened belief that government has a positive role to play in virtually all aspects of modern life, it should come as no surprise to anyone that, when push comes to shove, people are now trained to look to government to solve the problems – even when it was the government that created the problems in the first place.

    So, just as too many are expecting the government to solve problems, in Network Marketing too many are expecting companies and uplines to succeed for them.

    Learn the skills and save yourself by, paradoxically, helping others save themselves.
