The 7 MLM Scrolls: Affirmations to Grow Your Network Marketing Business

In today’s post, I will share the 7 MLM Scrolls.

I learned about “scrolls” from Og Mandino’s book, The Greatest Salesman in the World. If you haven’t read that book before, you should. He shared his wisdom on how to be a successful salesperson by studying the scrolls.

A scroll is a rolled-up piece of material, typically paper or parchment, used for writing or painting. Historically, before the invention of books as we know them today, scrolls were the primary form of written documents. They were made by attaching sheets of parchment or papyrus together and then rolling them from either side onto a central rod or cylinder. The content was written or drawn on the continuous surface, and to access specific information, the scroll would be unrolled or rolled back up. Scrolls were used across various cultures and time periods, often for important texts, religious scriptures, legal documents, and artistic representations.

I believe network marketers will benefit by having their own MLM Scrolls. Why? Most network marketers struggle with confidence, belief, and self-worthiness issues. Addressing and fixing those issues will lead to a major improvement in your life and business.

I encourage you to print off this page and repeat these MLM Scrolls out loud to yourself daily for one month. Study them, apply them, and watch your business grow.

The 7 MLM Scrolls

Here are my 7 MLM Scrolls, one for each day of the week.

Scroll # 1: I Am a Network Marketing Professional

I am a Network Marketing Professional. My attitude and actions effect EVERYONE in our industry, not just me. Each day, I will treat my business as if I have one million dollars invested in it. I will work on my attitude, skills, and mindset daily and never stop learning and improving. My business will be a top priority for me at all times. I will not make excuses, blame others, or place my business on the back burner when life gets busy. I will treat everyone I talk to with respect, even if they aren’t interested in what I am offering them. I will never bad mouth another person or network marketing company to gain new business. I will be a student of my business and invest time and money in my business education. I will set high standards for myself and my team. I will strive to improve daily.

Key Takeaway: Be a professional, not an amateur. Take pride in everything you do. Think of your business as a Million Dollar business, not a side hustle.

Scroll # 2: I Will Share My Business & Products with 10-20 People Daily

I am in the business of making exposures. If I don’t make exposures, I don’t make money! The more people I approach about the products and business, the more my business and income will grow. I will make MINIMUM 10-20  exposures per day, at least five days per week. When my mouth is closed my business is closed. I will develop prospecting and lead generation strategies that work best for me, so I always have new prospects to talk with.

Key Takeaway: We get paid to talk to people.

Scroll # 3: I Build People & People Build the Business

My real product is people. I understand that my products, company, and compensation plan are important, but my real product is building up people. Products don’t move people. People move products. If I build up my people, my business will grow. I will spend time helping my team members develop their potential and improve their skills. I will encourage everyone on my team to have their own personal development plan. I will also have my own personal development plan. My business will only grow as much as I do.

Key Takeaway: You must grow yourself, and grow others, to grow your business.

Scroll # 4: Every Prospect is a Prospect for Life

Every prospect is a prospect for life. A “No” today does not mean “No” forever. The fortune is in the follow-up. I must follow-up with each prospect, on average, at least five to twenty times BEFORE they will make a buying decision. I will never pressure people or use hype, but I will follow-up with everyone UNTIL they buy, die, or tell me not contact them again. I will be relentless, organized, and precise with my follow up.

Key Takeaway: The money is in the follow-up.

Scroll # 5: I Will Work with the Willing

I will work with the willing. I will nurture, coach, and support everyone in my organization, but I will spend MOST of my time working with the producers. I will not try to motivate unmotivated people. I will not work harder for someone else than they are willing to work for themselves. I will spend my time where it is deserved. I will help everyone get started in their new business, but I realize each person is their own CEO and is responsible for their own success. I will train everyone, but it is their responsibility to motivate themselves and implement what they learned. I will spend my one-on-one time with people who are actively building a business, while I mentor and support everyone else in a group setting.

Key Takeaway: Be smart about how much time you invest in each person in your team.

Scroll # 6: I Will Always Lead by Example

I will always lead by example. I will set the pace for my team. My own personal example is the most important thing I have in my business.  I will make new exposures daily and sign up new customers and distributors every month. I will maintain a high level of integrity. I will be a product of the product. I will do what I say and say what I do. I will never ask my team members to do something I’m not willing to do myself. I will do the things I want my team members to do. I will lead from the front and inspire others by my own personal example.

Key Takeaway: The only thing you can control in this business is what you do.

Scroll # 7: I Will Always Take the Long-Term View

I will always take the long-term view in my business. My vision and my why are my guideposts. Success in this business is about long-term focus, not chasing the newest shiny object. I will flush my employee mindset and start thinking like an entrepreneur. All businesses require several years of consistent, hard work to become successful. Every decision I make in my business will be based upon how it will help me in the long-term, not the short-term. I will remain focused UNTIL I achieve my goals.

Key Takeaway: Let your vision guide you and keep you on track.

What to Do with These MLM Scrolls

Read the first scroll every Monday. Read it once in the morning, once in the afternoon, and once in the evening. On Tuesday, do the same thing with the second scroll. Repeat this process each day of the week with a different scroll. Do it for 30-days and watch your business grow (for the lawyers: individual results will vary).

  1. These are great! Thank you! Its one thing to have the sentence to say everyday but then when you say these scrolls three times a day I know it will help retrain my brain to think differently. I will be printing these out and studying them daily! Great job!

  2. I love these MLM scrolls! Even after being in the MLM business as long as I have, I can read through these positive affirmations and see exactly where my weakness has been! I will be printing these off and putting on my wall. I need to read and re-read them to get my mindset where it belongs. I need to lead from the front at ALL times no matter how many distractions life throws at me! Thank you Chuck!

    1. Sounds good, Debbie. Mindset is everything. It’s something we should all work on. I’m glad you are going to print off these MLM Scrolls and read them daily.

  3. I will start reading and applying the scrolls to my business, daily. Attitude, strong mindset and follow ups are the attributes to building a strong business. I am setting serious goals and will do what I need to reach them. Affirmations will help me to stay on track and put to work the skills I know I have. Follow ups have been by far my greatest attribute!! I have printed them. Thanks Charles for this great post.

  4. This is an amazing daily reminder of why and how we want our businesses to grow and thrive. It’s like a vision board but more specific and there’s no pictures lol. Thank you, Chuck! I’m gonna put these up where I can read them every day!❤

    1. My virtual assistant is creating pics for this post as I write this comment. I normally create the content first, or update it, and then do the photos. I’m glad you enjoyed the MLM Scrolls.

  5. Thanks for the 7 MLM Scrolls! Although I have subscribed to that way of thinking in my MLM business the suggestion to use them as daily affirmations was genius! I see this as speaking success into existence. Speaking something into existence is an easy task to fit into your daily routine. Again thanks for these tips to help grow my business.

    1. Glad to help, Rhonda. There is something very powerful about affirmations if you combine them with HARD WORK. That is where most people fall short. Putting positive thoughts into your brain each day is vitally important. Repeating these affirmations aloud, two or three times per day, can help reprogram your mind.

  6. I like these scrolls and will be implementing them into my head to focus business mindset. They are very succinct and to the point. What I like about them (as well as you) is how you train, no frills, no fluff! What you teach is easy to understand and I very much appreciate that!

  7. This is a very thought provoking article. It follows the classic recipe to reprogram your mind for success. Of course you should not stop at 30 days because the negative influences of everyday life are just waiting to get back into your brain. It has always struck me as odd that it takes 30 days or more to reprogram your brain for positive habits but negative habits can sneak back into your mind in just a day or two. I guess that just shows how hard it really is to beat back a lifetime of hearing “Those pyramid schemes never work.” or the old standard “Go to college, get a degree, and get a good job!”. How about “Oh, you have a home business! Couldn’t you get a real job?” lol. Thanks so much for the great information. I will be putting these on 3×5 cards and starting each day with them.

    1. Great comment, Matt. We are exposed to constant negativity on social media, the radio, online and on tv. That’s why it’s so important to keep putting positive things in your mind as well. Thoughts are things. Choose wisely.

  8. Thank you for these! What good, quality, sound advice you’ve given. Not only will I use these scrolls for myself, but share them with my growing team. These scrolls will not only help keep a positive mindset, but also reaffirm our “why”. These will be placed on my mirror and my refrigerator not only for me to see, but so my family KNOWS how much MY business means to me.

  9. I think using the Scrolls everyday will help remind me that the little things I do each day with my business will eventually produce amazing results. Sometimes it feels like you are doing all these different things to grow your business and nothing is happening. Working on getting out of my comfort zone and improving myself will benefit me and my business.

    1. If you do things consistently, it will produce big results. It just won’t happen overnight. Good things take time. This is why it’s so important to know your WHY.

  10. I already believe all of this and I have been looking for affirmations to say several times a day and this is exactly what I have been searching for! I am a firm believer that you have to prepare your mind for success and I cannot wait to put these into daily practice! Thank you

  11. Kristin Fournier

    I so believe in affirmations and these are great for any MLM business to repeat as you mentioned! We become what we tell ourselves and create our own destiny! Here’s to building belief and experiencing breakthroughs!

  12. This is so helpful. All printed off and placed on my vision board to look at and review as suggested each day. Having a focus I know will help me and I will 100% read The Greatest Salesman In The World. Thank you again for the insight and guidance as always.

  13. Mindset, I am learning, is what truly makes a difference. It will allow you to make sure you do those follow ups that lead to the fortune. I have done a lot of MLMs in the past, but I never stuck with them because it seems as though my mindset wasn’t truly prepared. I did not do things daily to work my business. I am learning that daily activity moves your business. When you want to change your life and succeed in the business, you will move differently and be consistent. Learn from the leaders, taking the long-term view.

    1. Tenetta,

      Being persistent and consistent and taking the long-term view will pay huge benefits in your business. It’s something most people aren’t willing to do. You will find that all top leaders are 100% dedicated to their business. They act as if they have one million dollars invested and do whatever it takes for as long as it takes.


  14. These Scrolls are amazing. I am printing them out right now, as I feel this will really keep me accountable in my actions for my business. One thing I really need to focus on in all of these seven scrolls is the follow up. I have been and introvert my entire life and with my business I have really started coming out of my shell, but I am lacking in the follow up process. Thank you, these are really going to help me grow. I will remind myself daily, these seven important steps.

    1. That’s awesome, Alisha. I’m glad the MLM Scrolls will help you grow and learn and succeed. Like you, I am an introvert, but the business has also forced me out of my shell. That is a good thing. When it comes to follow up, that is quite perhaps the most important skill you can master and focus on if you want to grow your business quickly.

  15. Wowzer — Love these scrolls! Yes Positive Affirmations! I will copy them and place them in my morning pause & reflect time at the beginning of my day. I believe this will be a BIG impact on my personal & business growth. I am thrilled to begin using these MLM Scrolls. I see the impact in consistency, and accountability these will have. Thank you Chuck – #shinebright

    1. Thanks for stopping by Sheryl. Reciting these MLM Scrolls each morning is a great way to start the day. However, make sure you also put in the work. Just reading the scrolls aloud is better than nothing, but if you want good results in your business, you must combine it with all out massive action.

  16. Thank you so much for the Scrolls! I’m really excited to start using them and I place them in an affirmation app on my phone so that I can listen to them as well as repeat them to myself I appreciate you taking the time! Blessings on your business!

    1. I think the scrolls are spot on. You have to be leading your team by setting the example for them to follow. I will book mark this page to share with my team. I am working my business everyday. AMB.

      1. Good points, Amanda. Leading by example is vitally important. You can never expect your team members to outdo. Set the pace and example and inspire others by your own personal example.
