Are You Stuck Doing The Newbie Shuffle?

“The ability to discipline yourself to delay gratification in the short term in order to enjoy greater rewards in the long term is the indispensable pre-requisite for success.” ~ Brian Tracy

Here are a couple of definitions of the word Shuffle:
1. to mix in a mass confusedly : jumble
2. to move about, back and forth, or from one place to another : shift

There are many reasons why people fail in this Industry and here are just a few:

1. Never Fully CommitIf a person fails to fully commit to achieving success in any given area of their life, they are automatically headed for mediocrity at best and most likely failure. If you are jumping from one opportunity to the next or just pitching and spamming your opportunity links without first offering value or building  a rapport, you are not making the commitment to succeed.

2.  Spending Time with the Wrong People: This is The Most Frustrating Path to Failure. If you are not spending time with Mentors and Leaders that are caring and willing to share the “Right Way” to build an online presence and to brand YOU, your road to success will be long and winding.

Hint: Spamming all your connections in your social media sites and pitching your links to everyone as soon as you meet them DOES NOT work. You must practice Attraction marketing and the Consultative Approach

Do you need help with this ? Ask me how…

3. Incorrect Focus:  Is your focus on Challenges and Obstacles Rather than your Vision of what YOU want to create?

There will always be challenges and obstacles in anything worth doing. If you focus on them, they grow; but if you focus on your Vision, your Vision grows. Here is my vision…

Whether you are a “newbie” in this Industry or just a frustrated, struggling Networker trying to find your way and find the right Coaches to show you that way, you MUST ask yourself some questions:

Do I Really Need ALL Those Programs and Launches?

The only way to make money from most of them is to be one of the first in and they just serve as an added distraction to help you lose your FOCUS.

It seems as though EVERY 20 minutes or so I hear from another online friend about this new program or that new program.
They say things like, “get in FAST, I’m #4 or I’m #15″, earn a 6 figure income in 30 days, etc. I’m sure you have heard the same.

There will be 3 more launches before you read this entire post…

Then, the next day, the same friends are promoting something new.

Then, they have to contact ALL those same people again to see if they want to join the “new program”… it seems as though their time could be spent in a more productive way.

Plus, when you promote sooooo… many programs, not only do you lose FOCUS, but people are going to ask, “WHY are you jumping around so much, isn’t anything working?

Throw enough programs at the wall and see what sticks…

Please, do yourself a favor and pick ONE company and give it your BEST shot and FOCUS or pick one or two Affiliate programs and do the same thing. Especially, if you are building your business part-time online.

Every time you JUMP from one Company to another or one program to another, you are adding to the attrition that we already face in the Industry. Always looking for the NEXT BIG THING…

These days, too many people chase every shiny new opportunity and can’t delay their gratification and want success immediately and jump from one opportunity to the next in order to find that immediate success.

It is IMPORTANT to remember, that SUCCESS is a process …it is NOT a race and patience and discipline are key. It will NOT happen overnight. But, if you take your business SERIOUSLY and discipline yourself to take DAILY ACTION and to show up even if you don’t feel like it, YOU Will find the SUCCESS you DESERVE.

Believe me, I LOVE Multiple streams of income just as much as the next guy or gal… But, there is a MUCH better way to accomplish that and leverage your time while doing so.

  1. Great post Marc, it is so important to keep focus and not get side tracked with the latest launch. Finding a supportive group to help you with your online journey is essential.

    • @Kim Stanbrook,

      Hi Kim,

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.

      It is so easy to lose focus and get distracted with all the noise on the Internet. Find something that works and stick to it. Be persistent, consistent and take action every day and you WILL succeed.

      To your success,

  2. Hey Marc great post. It is so important not to flit about but focus on what you are doing. For me, focus and Attraction Marketing and using the Consultative Approach are the things I have been using that have made a difference to my business.

    • @Angus J McEwan,

      Hey Angus,

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.

      I’m happy that you enjoyed the post…Focus and discipline are the keys. It is so important to take an interest in people and find out what their pain points are and become a solutions provider and if you can offer value as an Attraction Marketer, you are really ahead of the curve.

      To your continued success and Leadership,

  3. Hey Marc,

    I think one of the BIGGEST problems most newbies have… and even some experienced marketers is that they fail to commit.

    That is fully COMMIT to one thing! But instead, they partially commit to many different things and because of that.. they struggle and fail, until eventually, they decide to FULLY commit 🙂

    And, once fully committed, they SUCCEED!

    • @Gavin Mountford,

      Hi Gavin,

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment…it is. greatly appreciated.

      There are far too many distractions these days for all levels of Networkers and it comes down to having the discipline to FOCUS and hopefully having the right Mentors and Coaches to help you to maintain that focus.

      To your continued Mastery,

  4. Hi Marc, it’s a hard thing to get to grips with everything that’s going on online when you first start out. I know a lot of people who are stuck in this trap you describe, and they float from one great opportunity to the next. It is a great achievement when you get a focus and can stick with it as perseverance does indeed pay off.

    Enjoy the journey.


    • @Mandy Allen @ Learn To Blog,

      Hi Mandy,

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.

      It is very difficult for inexperienced Networkers to maintain their focus and discipline without the proper Coaching and guidance.

      It can be overwhelming for Newbies and experienced networkers with all the new shiny objects and so many Networkers jumping around to try to find the magic pill.

      The magic pill has been and always will be focus and discipline along with hard work and consistent effort on a daily basis.

      To your continued success,

  5. Marc, I really loved the ‘Shuffle’ as a description of people hopping about between programs, opportunities or companies. I also see this applicable to the many different forms of marketing from which Newbies have to choose their path. Also people do just Shuffle about sometimes, going round in a haphazard circle!!
    Your 3 points were excellent, I particularly liked the third about obstacles – these have to be got around by researching, asking others and looking upon them as a hurdle which can be jumped – we grow as we learn to do this, and each one is a lesson we can pass on to others.

    As you mentioned to Kim above FOCUS pulls all your tips together

    Fab post 🙂


    • @Jacs Henderson,

      Hi Jacs,

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.

      I think the term “shuffle” does depict what so many Networkers are doing these days and not just newbies.

      It is so important for Networkers to conduct their due diligence and find training, Coaching and mentoring that will help them to gain focus.

      To your success,

  6. Top quality post, Marc.
    The internet is a challenging place for a newbie IM’er, especially a network marketer.

    All these clever tempting launches…. they cause those of us who are new to the scene to be tempted, doubt what they are already doing and switching too often so they lose credibility with their list.

    Choose the right company, the right sponsor and stick with it. Take your time about that and then commit, focus and work hard, MLM is a long term plan , not a quick fix.

    Thank you , mate


    • @Pete Chapman,

      Hi Peter,

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.

      So true, Networkers at all levels need to realize that this business MUST be taken seriously and is NOT an overnight miracle, but a long term plan for sustained success and takes time.

      To your success,
