WHEN RICHES BEGIN TO COME THEY COME SO QUICKLY, IN SUCH GREAT ABUNDANCE, THAT ONE WONDERS WHERE THEY HAVE BEEN HIDING DURING ALL THOSE LEAN YEARS. This is an astounding statement, and all the more so, when we take into consideration the popular belief, that riches come only to those who work hard and long.

When you begin to THINK AND GROW RICH, you will observe that riches begin with a state of mind, with definiteness of purpose, with little or no hard work. You, and every other person, ought to be interested in knowing how to acquire that state of mind which will attract riches.


I used to say things to myself like network marketing is hard and that's why it's only a small percentage that can do it successfully. And I would think so hard on this and focus on how to make it easier for the masses to be successful at because I want everyone to succeed. But that's not true. I know that's not true now. It's what I told myself because I was looking for a reason, an excuse as to why most fail. But that's not it. It is not my belief that most people fail because of several reasons:

1. Network marketing is a business of teaching, mentorship and leadership. However, most people are either too afraid or doubtful of their abilities to step up and lead

2. People come into this business and they bring with them all the doubt, fear and every other negative emotional state and they transfer that negative energy onto others unknowingly which helps bring about undesired results.

3. They go about building their business the wrong way and so they get some no's, their feelings get hurt and they experience the pain of rejection, then it makes them not want to try anymore and they quit.

The few that succeed don't necessarily work hard for it. Yes they work, but they also have a certain state of mind and an energy about them that attracts increase into their lives. They are not afraid of being embarassed. They don't take no's personally. They don't stop short of gold. They don't quit. 

So the thing most people need to focus on before even starting in business is acquiring that state of mind that will attract riches. They need to get their mind in check first because thoughts are things. And if they want the thing, they need to first think it without doubting the likeliness of attaining it. They need to know already that it is attained and the only thing standing between themselves and the thing they desire is carrying out the written action plan to acquire it.
