Keep Duplicating Your Way To Failure! (written September, 2005)

Do you realize that success is duplication in process? If you want to succeed in any endeavor, especially MLM, duplicating a successful person or MLMer is your first step toward achieving your financial dreams and goals. Do you know what? It works in reverse too. Failure is duplication in process also. 100% of MLMer’s are duplicating other MLMer’s. Since 98% of MLMer’s are failures, who are you duplicating?

I get probably 10-20 new offers in the mail each day addressed to me. Some are handwritten. Some have no return address. Some are poorly copied flyers. Some can’t be determined where they were mailed from. Some have no phone numbers or no contact info. Some have no email or website address. I don’t get it? Why would I join? Why would you join?

Here is the problem? Too many of you join into these types of programs, and then do the same exact thing these other failures have done to you. Guess what? That is why you are failing.

If you think that you can just mail out a few letters, never talk to anyone, and make some money, then who do you think you are fooling? You are duplicating failures, so consequently, you are wasting your time, money, and efforts into a failing endeavor.

Then after you fail at this one, you do it again with another one, and then another one, and then another one and guess what? You are duplicating your own process of failure over and over and over and over again and again and again.

Aren’t you tired of failing? Would you like to change this trend? I hope so for your sake. If you want to duplicate successful MLMer’s, than adopt these 3 principles immediately – #1) Programs will not work – there are no best or fastest programs. #2) The only way programs will work is if you do! You make a program work with your own efforts. #3) No program will develop over night success. Get that out of your head. Now! You want to build an income. Building requires time, effort, patience, and persistence – commitment! If you take nothing from what I am saying but these 3 principles, you will now begin to start to build a full time income to success.

That is how simple it is. Once you adopt these three principles and realize that success is in your own hands, then find a successful MLMer you want to duplicate. How do you locate a successful MLMer?

Pretty easy. Successful MLMer’s don’t hide behind phony 800# messages; Business names at PO Boxes, Fancy words that have no value. Successful MLMer’s can easily be found. They are real people who are in a real business. They can be contacted by telephone. They answer their mail. They have a real name. They are proud to show you their opportunity! OK? Get it?

Next time you get a piece of mail that promises you all the riches in the world, see who sent it? Are they real? Can they be contacted? Can you actually call them on the telephone? Can you email them? Have you heard of them before? Are they on the Internet? If they aren’t, then you probably know that they are failing and you will duplicate their failure when you join them.

If they are for real and you can contact them and what they sent has interest to you, then go back and read my 3 principles that you must adopt to be successful in MLM. Next step? Call up this real successful person you wish to duplicate and ask serious questions, like, “How do you suggest I promote this program?” “What are you doing to promote this program?” “Can you help me learn this business so I can be like you?” These are serious questions – not like the usual stupid ones, for example, “Are you for real?” “Can I really make money?” “How long does it take?” These are the stupid ones you ask over and over and consistently fail. You are duplicating stupid question and stupid question getting nowhere.

If you want to keep duplicating your way to failure, just continue to do what you are doing. If you want to duplicate your way to success, adopt a few simple principles and find a successful real MLMer you can duplicate, and you are off to a great new start towards success!
