How to Build Your Belief in the MLM Industry

How do you build your belief in the MLM Industry? What is the real key to success? My goal today is to answer those two questions.

Let me start by telling you that belief is defined as “trust, faith, or confidence in someone or something.” If I was to define it in my own words, I would call it “having 100% confidence in what you are doing and who you are.”

When it comes to success in life, belief is the magic word. I’ve never met anyone successful in ANY industry or endeavor, let alone network marketing, who did not believe in themselves or believe in what they were doing. Have you?

After all, how can you expect anyone else to believe in what you are doing if you don’t believe in it yourself? Therefore, building up your belief is vitally important if you want to be successful in life and in network marketing.How to Build Your Belief in the MLM Industry

The Four Beliefs

To succeed in network marketing, you must develop these four beliefs. These are non-negotiable.

Your Company

Your must believe in your company and its leadership team. You must believe they are moral, ethical, solid, and will stand the test of time.

The Products

Without a rock solid belief in your company’s products or services, you won’t be able to sell them to anyone else. This is why it’s vital to choose a company with products you use and love.

The Industry

If you’re brand new, this belief might take you a little bit longer to master than the first two, but it’s vital that you believe in the industry. You must believe that it is moral, legit, and works.


The most important belief is to believe in yourself. This is the one that most people struggle with. You must overcome your self-worthiness issues and believe you are worthy and deserving of HUGE success.

How to Build Your Belief in the MLM Industry

My goal in the rest of this article is to help you build up your belief in the MLM Industry (and yourself). I want to share some simple things you can do on a daily basis that will build up your belief level. Let’s get started.

# 1: Be a Student of Your Business

The first thing you should do to build your belief in the MLM Industry is be a student of your business. Just like any other successful entrepreneur, you must immerse yourself in your business and industry. This means that you:

  • Learn everything you can about your industry.
  • Learn everything you can about your company and its products.
  • Read books, listen to tapes, watch videos, and attend industry events.
  • Subscribe to industry publications.
  • Visit industry related websites.

Entrepreneurs in every profession do these things because (1) they want to be successful, and because (2) they have a large amount of money invested in their business and they want to protect their investment and eventually succeed.

Keep an open mind, be a sponge, and think of your network marketing business as your PROFESSION. Do not think of it as a side hustle or little “part-time” thing.

# 2: Associate with Successful People

To build up your belief in the MLM Industry, you must spend time with successful people in the industry. Surround yourself with people who have achieved what you want to achieve in the business, and learn everything you can from them. Humble yourself enough to listen to what they say and IMPLEMENT what they teach you.

Surround yourself with people who uplift, encourage, and bring out the best in you. Do not let the broke, struggling reps, or reps who quit, influence your opinion about the business. Only take advice about your business from successful people in your upline!

And most importantly, do not be the smartest tool in the shed. Surround yourself with people more talented than you and learn everything you can from them!

It’s vital that you work on your personal development. Your business will only grow as much as you do.

Spend 15 to 30-minutes DAILY improving your skills, attitude, and mindset. Your goal is to improve every day and never stop.

Develop a personal development plan you can follow. Invest a portion of your income in seminars, books, tapes, and coaching programs. Never stop growing and learning. As you grow personally, your belief in yourself will skyrocket.

# 4: Take Massive Action

The quickest way to build your belief in the MLM Industry is to take all out massive action. This means you roll up your sleeves, get in the trenches, and get to work. This is the fastest way to learn and master a new skill. You can study something until the cows come home, but if you never implement what you’ve learned, you are only fooling yourself.

As you do this, you will quickly discover that you are capable of much more than you thought you were. As you learn and master your skills and see your business grow, your confidence and belief in yourself will skyrocket!

# 5: Learn About Your Company & Products

In order to build your belief in your company and products, spend some time and learn everything you can about them. Visit your corporate headquarters. Talk with the CEO or key leaders. Attend the company’s annual convention.

Try out ALL of your company’s products. Research the company and products online. If you chose a solid, reputable company, the information you learn will help grow your belief in what you have your hands on.

If you have questions or find something you don’t understand, reach out to someone and get an answer.

Final Thoughts

It’s all about doing a series of little things consistently month after month, year after year. That way you can form new habits, improve your mindset and attitude, and form new beliefs about the MLM Industry.

  1. Before anything can be accomplished in life-personally and professionally, I think a person has to believe in what they plan on doing will succeed. Obviously, this is the case in having a successful MLM business. My favorite piece of advice I took from this article is to be careful of who you choose to associate with, because whoever is with you may not have the same goals as you do. This advice not only applies to this business, but also with. Great article.

  2. I think a lack of belief in the MLM system was my main problem, trying to make it as a Pampered Chef consultant. My director made a great income, but I couldn’t seem to meet the minimum sales requirements. Love the “Auto University” idea, I’ll pass that along to my MLM hubby!
