What is the most vital ingredient for success in network marketing?

The most vital ingredient for success in network marketing success is a success mindset.

What is a mindset?

The American Heritage dictionary defines  mindset as a fixed attitude that predetermines a person's response to and interpretations of situations. An inclination or a habit.  Jim Britt one of the leading peak performance experts for network marketers describes the success mindset as follows:

A mindset is made up of four components

Thought process

  • Success originates with your thoughts
  • Thoughts choose your direction in life


  • People don't have a problem thinking success
  • People have a problem believing that they can do what they are thinking.


  • Feelings are “magnets” that attract circumstances into life
  • Feelings are the mortar that holds the brick wall (beliefs) together


  • That doesn’t allow for turning back.

The results of a success mindset.

All of your thoughts, beliefs and feelings along with decision make up your success mindset, these are all created and controlled by you.  Your mindset makes you as mechanical and predictable as a calculator:  Hit the key and the number appears on the paper.

“Finding your “pot of gold” at the end of the rainbow is not a mere fairy tale!  You are the spot where the rainbow ends.  There hidden within your own imagination you will discover the path to your pot of gold.”

    Hey Perry,

    Great stuff. Mindset is one of my favorite subjects because it is 90% of success and the largest challenge most people will face….

    Will certainly has the ability to communicate this very important concept.

    Hi Perry,

    I agree 100%, mindset is critical for anything we do in life. The mind is the most powerful thing we all have. Belief leads to feeling competent which leads to success. Keep believing, each little step leads to feeling stronger and more success.

    Hey Perry,

    The Will Smith video is AWESOME.

    “This is what I believe and I am willing to die for it”… Will Smith

    WOW.. now that’s total commitment!

    “Being realistic is the most commonly traveled road to mediocrity”… Will Smith

    I love this guy!

    Every person whether they have a home business or not should watch this video.

    Thanks Perry for making this video available to me.

    The importance of mindset is the most important message because it truly reveals what is and what will be. Mindset is the designer of our destiny – with our belief system at its core. Great post, Perry, and thanks for also sharing Will Smith’s powerful insight that adds the exclamation point to your own.

    The video was incredible.

  • John Gaydon November 12, 2010, 11:45 am

    Great post, Perry,

    It’s true. What you think about expands. Focus is the key to success here. It is amazing that what I put my energy into grows. When I switch focus, my success shifts too! As you develop your mind power, you find that this happens with the speed of light. Make a decision, leave the past behind and focus on where you are heading, and everything you need to know to get there will simply appear.

    The catch is to listen to the omens. There is nothing like the man on the roof in a flood praying for God to rescue him who ignores 3 boats that float past offering a lift, only to drown and find out God sent 3 people to rescue him, and he ignored them!

    you are right about the mindset. I’ve seen way too many times where people have a bad mindset and can not achieve success. Then, later, they decided to change that mindset and were able to change their future. Thanks for sharing.

  • Vanessa October 28, 2010, 5:32 pm

    You are totally right, mindset is everything and I try to surround myself with people who have the right mindset in life.

    Thanks for sharing this video of Will Smith, I hadn’t watched it before but it reminded me of why I like him.

  • Eddie Espiritu October 26, 2010, 11:15 pm

    Success IS a mindset. If we believe we can, decide to take action, and then take MASSIVE action…all things are possible! Stay focused and take action. We can all do it!

    Hi Perry,

    Great blog, and an even better post. Mindset is one of the key factors for a successful entrepreneur. If you don’t have the right mindset, you will never get your business off the ground.

    So true! It is the success mindset that instills the beliefs that we will succeed and we can succeed.

    The toughest part for most people is to do the actions you learned you needed to do when you were motivated and excited after that excitement has left.

    Working when you don’t feel like it, making that one extra contact. All these steps will add up into massive success.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Hey Perry,

    First, I love Will Smith. He is a great artist as well as a great person as the video shows.

    Mindset is such a fundamental aspect in all we do. If we don’t believe things are possible then we may never achieve them in our lives due to those limiting beliefs.

    Thanks for the article!

    In Success,

    Thanks for sharing this, I agree mindset is the most important ingredient for success in anything and Will Smith should know. Great video to use for education, wish I was this smart when my children were younger so I could have passed this on at an earlier age.

    Hi Perry,

    The most vital ingredient for success in ‘anything’ is a success mindset. I believe that, too.

    Loved the Will Smith video. I’d seen it before but it is so motivating, it was great to see it again. “I want to do good. I want the world to be better because I was here.” What a great thing to say and to be committed to!

    Will Smith knows, understands and lives the Principles of Success and the Laws of the Universe. He obviously had great support and intelligence in his family – with the lessons he talks about from his father and grandmother. That is an incredible start to have in life. Imagine what that kind of support and encouragement and learning can have on your children?
    The right mindset is necessary for success. Without it, you will never achieve your dreams.
    Awesome post!!

    Hi Perry,

    I think Will Smith is great and couldn’t agree more; no matter what you know and what you do, your will be stopped in your tracks if you haven’t got the right mindset .

    Hi Perry,

    Stopping by from TSA. You’re nailed it with mindset. It is one of the most, if not the most important principles to success. Marketing is right up there. But if you don’t have the right mindset to withstand the challenges and daily grind of being an entrepreneur, you’ll never make it.

    Thanks for sharing!
