I quit MLM and network marketing.
Sometimes I quit on nearly a daily basis.
Let’s face it – this business isn’t always easy.
We face challenges.
And some days just suck.
But you know what?
Working a job for someone else has the same problem.
Actually, for me it was worse.
I’ve had way more days that sucked working a job than I do working my business.
Why People Quit MLM and Network Marketing
Dig down deep and do business with your reasons for quitting.I quit for the same reasons many other people do.
All of mine turned into reasons to keep going.
- I don’t have time
- I’m afraid what someone will think of me
- It keeps me from having a life
- And sometimes I just don’t feel like talking to people
I don’t know what you reasons for quitting may be, but I’m sure you have some good ones.
And I mean that sincerely.
I’m sure at least one or two of your reasons are legitimate.
But the reasons are simply the mask covering the face of why we truly quit.
Reasons are logical.
But we don’t quit because of rational objections.
We quit because of emotion.
It’s a matter of belief.
In that moment we think that quitting will bring us more happiness, more fulfillment, or possibly simply a rescue and release from pressure.
In that moment we believe it will be more gratifying to quit than to keep plugging on.
But generally, this is a lie.
There was something that initially moved you to get into network marketing.
And chances are good that hasn’t yet changed.
Yes, quitting might relieve some pressure you are feeling in one sense.
But I’m willing to bet it simply opens up the gate to a greater pressure – either financially, or time-wise, or just being at the beck and call of the whims of a boss.
“I don’t have time.”
Sure, you don’t have time to do everything you want to do in life – maybe not even enough for the things you need to do.
But when will that change?
And how will that change apart from your business?
“What will someone think?”
Someone might think differently about you if you talk with them about your MLM business.
But chances are, they don’t think much of you at all right now.
There’s an even chance that their opinion of you will improve.
And if someone already thinks well of you, sharing your business isn’t likely to ruin your relationship.
Maybe you can really help them.
But you won’t know unless you share.
At the end of the day, is someone else’s opinion really that important to you?
Will you let a fear of their disapproval control the outcome of your life?
And if the opinions of others are important to you, as they are to me, then shape those opinions over time.
Be consistent in your efforts and the way you run your business.
Operate with integrity and put the needs of others before yourself.
“It keeps me from having a life.”
You are going to have to make sacrifices.
You will have to give up certain things.
But if you work hard to build your business, it should open up doors to actually live life on your terms.
Will your job do that?
My job just demanded more time and dedication from me, with no commensurate increase in true compensation.
In my network marketing business I could map out exactly what I needed to do in order to build a business that would free me in terms of income and time commitment.
There is hope here a job can’t provide.
Hope for the future.
“I just can’t deal with people right now.”
People are people.
And you will have to deal with them in life, no matter what.
In this business we have the opportunity to truly help people.
To encourage them to reach for more.
To look beyond themselves and touch the lives of others.
Are Your Reasons to Quit Enough?
Dig down deep and do business with your reasons for quitting.
All of mine turned into reasons to keep going.
And you might find the same.
Do you have a driving purpose?
An emotional grounding that drives you forward?
Remind yourself of it, and fight to believe it is worth it.
Quitting the Right Way
So, I quit MLM.
But never for very long.
Sometimes it’s for five minutes.
Sometimes it’s for a day.
But I believe that what I am working toward is worth it.
And so I begin again.
With renewed focus and intensity.
Do you feel like quitting some days?
But not for long.
Come back at it with a new perspective.
A fresh realization that this is the only way you are going to achieve your goals and live life on your terms.
That’s how I quit MLM and network marketing.
And so far I’d say it’s working out pretty well for me!
When you are ready to begin again, here is a great place to start.
I apologise, but, in my opinion, you are not right. I suggest it to discuss. Write to me in PM, we will communicate.
