“When you take the opportunity to dive in and face your fears, your business will be so much better off.”

Tricia Peterson (23:53 - 24:11)

You can identify and conquer the things that are stopping you from reaching success.

Do you feel like you aren’t getting closer to your network marketing goals? Are you struggling with unhealthy habits and mindset blocks that lead to self-sabotage? In order to break free from these enemies, you have to face your fears, be courageous, and fight for what you want. 

“When you really want something, something you know you have to do, don’t use lack of resources as an excuse.” - Brooke Elder (14:24 - 14:37)

You have big goals. But what’s stopping you from achieving them?

The Three Most Common Enemies of Success


  • Procrastination. Do you wait until the last minute to get the most important tasks done? Then you’ve fallen into the procrastination trap. Planning is the key to overcoming this enemy. At the beginning of your week, lay out your list of to-do items for each day. Place the most important tasks at the top. This keeps your body and mind fresh and ready to face any challenge. You’ll have no excuse for not getting the job done.



  • Lack of Resources. Do you feel like you lack the right people on your team or the right systems? Like procrastination, these are excuses. Shift your focus from what you lack to what you have. Get creative and figure out how to make the most of your resources. If you want something, you’ll figure out a way to make it happen. 



  • Opportunity Cost. Imagine you’ve been itching to lose weight for your company’s Christmas party. Would the best time to start a new diet be at the beginning of December or early fall? Obviously, the sooner you start the better! But you procrastinate. This is a classic example of opportunity cost. You waste time waiting and thinking when you could be making significant gains. It’s a loss of opportunity. Take action today. 


“Time is the only commodity you’ll never get back.” - Tricia Peterson (23:29 - 23:34)

You’ll never have a better time than right now to pursue your goals. This week, ask yourself which one of the three enemies of success is your greatest opponent? Then plan your attack and get started. 

Keep your distance from others who are quick to make excuses, especially when recruiting. A promising new recruit is one who’s determined to do whatever it takes to make it happen. You’ve got everything you need to conquer the enemies of success. Nothing can stop you.
