It is amazingly said to see so many people in the MLM or Home based business industries fail blatantly, especially when looking at the statistics that majority of about 90% of businesses fail. One thing that I have come to realise is that one of the qualities that is attribute to those 10% that are achieving success in this industries which can not be found in the 90% that fails is the attributes of self leadership. We must understand that the MLM or network marketing business is all about leadership. The higher your level or ability to leader, the better your chances to attract success to your business as well as your personal life. We must understand that attraction marketing, personal branding are all about self leadership.


So what is self leadership?

Before anyone can reach his full potential as a leader, he or she must first be a leader to himself or herself. We must capitalize on our innate talents and strengths, challenge the habits that hinder us from growing and being productive. We must manage the fears and negative emotions that frequently keep us from realizing our goals. It is a fact that our mind functions in two distinct pathways– our conscious and subconscious thoughts.

Our Conscious is the intentional part of our brain, it houses ours our critical and analytical thoughts while our sub conscious thoughts is the instinctual and impulsive part of our brain; it houses emotions, memories and even guides the body to perform its vital functions. While we can often recognize the power of our conscious, most of us underestimate the power of our subconscious thoughts which is the reason why most people can not lead themselves to success. Unfortunately, when do this, we squander a wellspring of human potential.

Self leadership is our ability to recognize the power of our sub-conscious thoughts and take control of them. A good leader may recognize that he indulges in habits that keep him shy away from his goals; but a great leader does something about it. He confronts the behaviours and routines (habits) that keep his sub conscious stuck. He will work hard to re-design is deep seated and limiting beliefs, attitude and truths so that they will support his conscious efforts. Inevitably, The great leader conquer his hidden fears through consciously action against the fear and makes an emotional investment in his vision to show others the way to success.

Therefore for every MLM or Home based entrepreneur who wants to achieve success, they must start first by becoming a leader of themselves before they can become a leader to others as well as achieve great success in their business. As we all know attraction marketing is all about personal branding and leadership; You can never achieve this feat without being a self leader; Watch the video below about my views and thoughts on why I believe we must be a great self leader to achieve greater success in MLM or our businesses;

    Hi Kenny,

    Leadership is an inside job. Lead self, and others follow.

    Key points here. Work on yourself continually. As your biz grows you run into tons of blocks. No way to avoid this. Simply bump up your personal development as resistance increases and blast through limitations. In time, you become a leader, and others will respond to you accordingly.

    Thanks for sharing Kenny!

      Hi Ryan,
      I agree with you 100%! Continous learning is key to being a great leader… Just i read somewhere that “every leader is a reader, every leader is a learner”

      Powerful stuff!

      Thanks for sharing your wonderful and valuable insights :)

      Kindest regards,

    Hey Kenny,
    If we take a closer look, the external world is just a reflection of what’s’ll perceive everything differently according to the attitude you have..that’s why we live in different realities.
    When you shift the internal things the external results must change as well. When one manages to believe in himself the circumstances will become an evidence of this trust.
    I heard a beautiful quote this morning from Bashar..”Circumstances doesn’t matter; State of being matters”. So the million dollar question is who you are in the process of building a home based business ? :)

    Thank you for sharing buddy. Great work!

      Hey Radu my friend,

      thanks for sharing your depth of wisdom once again, I absolutely agree with you! there is a quote that I heard from a video but can’t remember the title of the movie, it state thus ” your attitude to life is a product of your heart, if your heart stinks, your attitude stinks” very powerful.

      I also love the quote from Bashar , you shared here…We are all on a journey of life with several bus stops at which we all pick up the nuggets of life which either makes grow to complete a sweeter journey or end the journey with regrets… self leadership is all a matter of choice.. :)

      Thanks for your lovely comments :)

      All the best,

    Great tips on leadership you’re sharing here, Kenny. I agree with Ryan, it all starts from within. Work more on yourself than you do on your business.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Great message Kenny and I agree with everyone else that it all starts from within. We all have this within us but we have to work on ourselves to realize that it’s already there.

    I never looked at myself as a leader and was really kind of terrified with even the thought of this. Until I started working on myself and understanding more of just what it really means. I think we all have a part of that self doubt coming into this so work on ourselves first and we’ll all start understanding just how truly great we each are in our own individual way.

    Loved your message and your video so thanks for sharing this. Wonderful job Kenny!

      Hi Adrienne,

      You are absolutely right, everyone has a work to do in dealing with inner voice of self doubt if they are to transform to become what they want to be in this industry as well as their lives.

      Thanks for sharing your wonderful thoughts and kind words. I hope to see you around soon :)

      Kindest regards,

    Hey Kenny,

    You provide a lot of good information on leadership in this post. Most of it is theoretical. I believe leadership is a developed habit. In Internet marketing and Network marketing, it’s first all about developing relationships. And, the best way to do that is to coach and mentor others to help them achieve their goals.

    This takes work, a lot of hard and consistent work! Therefore, leadership is more about working hard to achieve one’s goal. And, leadership is earned from hard work. I believe some can have a great leadership personality, but still fail because they don’t work hare enough. Then, other factors come into play, like establishing one’s priorities and sticking with them, as well as time management. And, this is a developed habit!

    All the Best,

      Hi Rick,
      You are honestly right, leadership is a developed habit. most of it is not in born, you have to have the awareness for change, unlearn your old or limiting habit to develop the leadership habit for success which was the purpose of this post.

      I also agree with you that it takes a lot of hard work to develop these habits as well as become it. One big truth in this life is the easiest things in life is negativity of the mind as well as unproductive habits but to be positive as well being productive or build something worthwhile is hard and requires lots of discipline, dedication, determination and sacrifice.

      Thanks Rick for sharing this wonderful insights, I appreciate you and hope to see you around soon :)

    You got it! We simply must have self leadership. We need to have the dedication to wake up and do what we need to do in our businesses to make it work – without someone telling us to do it.
    Learning how to take initiative is crucial in all success in all business ventures. Well put.

    Leadership is the first thing one needs to learn to be successful in network marketing. The high failure rate is because this first step is ignored by the 90% I’m convinced the 90% who fail get in to make a quick buck because they have bought into the hype of easy money. The 10% however see the big picture and realize mlm success is a process not a scheme.

    Nice article! Thank’s for the share :-)

    You can easily see, from just these 7 key principles of your sub-conscious mind, how very powerful your sub-conscious mind is. The thoughts and experiences you have each day are manifested based on the picture of life that is held in your sub-conscious mind.

    Because of your superconscious powers, anything that you can hold in your mind on a continuing basis, you can have. Emerson wrote, “A man becomes what he thinks about, most of the time.” Earl Nightingale wrote, “You become what you think about.” In the Bible it says that, “Whatsoever a man soweth, that also shall he reap.” And this law of sowing and reaping refers to mental states; to your thoughts. Of course, there is a potential danger in the use of your superconscious mind. It is like fire3/4a wonderful servant, but a terrible master. If you use it improperly, and think negative, fearful thoughts, your superconscious mind will accept your thoughts as a command and go to work to materialize them into your reality. What is the difference between successful people and unsuccessful people? It is as simple as this: Successful people think and talk about what they want, and unsuccessful people talk about what they don’t want.
