Law of Attraction and Why You’re Failing in MLM

Are you in an MLM Business or an Affiliate Marketing business?

Have you heard about the Law of Attraction?  I would actually be surprised if you haven’t, so I am assuming you have heard of it.

Do you know the Law of Attraction?  Do you follow it?

If you have not seen the movie The Secret, I have an assignment for you.  Watch it!  At the time of this writing, it’s still on Netflix, so watch it, or read the book.  In the movie you will find some universal laws that apply to you and me, whether we know it or not, or whether we like it or not.

The two most important aspects of the Law of Attraction are:

  1. You are what you think about
  2. Gratitude

Are you applying these principals in your MLM business?  Are you applying these principals in your everyday life?

You Are What You Think About

“As a man thinketh, so is he” –  Proverbs 23:7

How can you be rich?  Well according to the above passage that’s inspired from the Old Testament verse, you have to think like a rich person.

How do you think like a rich person?

You should first ask yourself what mental attitude to rich people have?

For starters rich people tend to be very positive people.  They look at challenges, adversity and problems with a positive attitude.  They look at their business with a positive attitude.  In your MLM organization, what kind of attitudes do you see among your top money earners.  You see them on stage or hear them on a conference call and they are positive, full of energy, and they’re always full of passion and excitement!

This is what you need to implement in your life.  I know!  I can hear it already!  “But Josh, those top money earners are financially free and they have all the money and time in the world and that’s why they are positive and full of energy.”  And I would tell you “No, you have it all backward” they didn’t get this positive attitude and energy after they got the money and the free time….no, no, no, they developed this attitude and mindset BEFORE they became successful.”

First you change your attitude and your thoughts to those of a rich person, and the riches and financially freedom come AFTER you have developed those attitudes.  It’s “be, do, have” not “do, have, and be” and certainly not have, be, and do.

Another way to think like the rich is to associate with them.  In your MLM organization, get to know the high income earners.  Talk to them, take note of how they treat others, and see if you can find an opportunity to learn how they overcame adversity during their journey to financial freedom.

Another important part of your thoughts, in the movie The Secret we learn the phrase “Thoughts Become Things”.  What this means is that you need to visualize how you want your future to look.  Do you want a large downline organization?  Visualize it.  Write it down.  Do you want a large mansion with a big pool and palmtrees lined up with your long driveway?  Visualize it, write it down, and post a picture of it on your wall or on your computer background.  Do you want a BMW 7 series?  Write it down, post a picture of the car on your wall or on your computer.  Put all these items you want on what they call a dream board and you look at it and think about it everyday.  If you do this enough, soon the physical manifestation of these things will take place.


“Gratitude is riches.  Complaint is poverty.” -Doris Day

Having an attitude of gratitude is one of the most important key components in the process of become rich.  What should you be thankful for?……..  Everything!  Yes, everything!  Even the bad stuff in your life!  Think of the most horrible thing you went through in life.  Are you thankful you went through it?  You should be.  What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger and that’s why you should be thankful because you know that you can get through some pretty tough crap and come out stronger on the other side.

Gratitude is an attribute a lot of people struggle with.  Especially MLMers!  Yes you read correctly!

Well, think about this.  Most people get into MLM because they are not thankful.  They hate their job, they hate their income, they hate their debt, they hate commuting to work in the morning.

How many of you have referred to your job as a J-O-B?  It stands for “just over broke”.  I will bet money that you learned this acronym in your MLM business.  You may have heard it from your upline.  Well, it’s the worst possible attitude to have toward your job.  Going forward, you will be thankful for the day job you have.  If you truly hate your job and can’t stand going to it everyday, then switch jobs to one that you don’t hate.  You don’t have to love it, but it needs to be acceptable enough that you can be thankful for it.  Being thankful for your day job will lead you to become successful in your MLM business.

Be thankful for your house.  Do you not have a house? Do you live in an appartment? or a singlewide?  Be thankful.  You have a roof over your head during the cold and rainy weather.

Be thankful for all the things you have in life, even if they are not everything that you want.  When you are thankful for something such as your house, you attract more of it into your life.  If you are thankful for the 1 sponsor you have in your downline, you attract more sponsors to you.  If you are thankful for the $30,000 annual salary that you have, you’ll attract more income.

MLMers fall into the trap of complaining a lot about their current situation.  They come into MLM with the goal of being able to fix their problems, but if they have an attitude of complaining, they will be part of the 95% who don’t make it.  MLM is very hard in the beginning, so you need to be constantly thankful so you can carry yourself through the difficult beginnings of acheiving financial freedom.

If you can master Gratitude, the whole world is yours for the taking.  It’s not easy to always be thankful, in fact it’s probably the hardest attribute to take on.  However, it is totally worth it!  So, change your attitude today and start earning more tomorrow.
