70: One Mans Excuse is Another Mans Fuel

What is up my friends, i’m excited to be back into a routine now that we have our new baby girl here and doing well.

Today’s episode is to help you learn a powerful way to turn your excuses into something that drive you.

The truth is that the reason most people say they can’t have success is the very reason someone else WILL be successful.

One mans excuse truly is another mans fuel.


Examples of flipping your excuses to become your fuel:

“I don’t have the time to build a network marketing business.”

Have you ever heard this excuses before (or made it yourself)?

Someone else out there who is MORE busy than you, is using the fact that they don’t feel like they have enough time as their fuel for building a network marketing business. They see this amazing business model as a way to create time freedom!

“I don’t have the money to get started.”

Have you come across anyone who say’s they just don’t have the money to get started? I’ve seen people sell all kinds of things or borrow money to get started with network marketing BECAUSE they don’t have money and they’re ready for change.

“I’m too young.”

When I first got started in my business, I let my age become a limiting belief for why I couldn’t be successful. With the help of a couple mentors of mine, I was able to flip that excuse and realize that there were SO many reason why being young was an advantage for me. It’s all in your paradigm!

Coaching your MLM prospects or team members through their limiting beliefs 

Understand that one of your roles as a leader in network marketing is to coach people through their limiting beliefs. I’ve found that one of the best ways is to use this concept with people.

Now as a quick warning I don’t just come at them and call them out on their excuse.

Rather, I tell them a story. =)

If they mentioned that they just don’t have the money right now. I tell them a story of me or someone else I know who didn’t have the money, made a sacrifice and today has far more money that they had back then.

Using story’s is an extremely powerful way to open peoples minds to what is possible. It’s simple, but powerful!

Ask yourself, what excuses am I making? Could I flip them to be my fuel?
