MLM Training: 5 Steps To Eliminating Procrastination

Have you ever noticed that children have no problems watching the same movies or shows OVER, and OVER again?  Let’s take a closer look at what’s really going on when the DVD seems to be stuck on repeat!

When children watch the same things repeatedly they are committing them to memory.  In martial arts, the same lessons are practiced again and again until each individual skill set is mastered.  To learn a song, a musician must listen to and play the same song over, and over.

Do you see a pattern, here? 

The key to building your mental muscle and learning all there is to learn about a topic is to receive the information until you have it practically memorized.


Here’s a video that will help explain what I mean…



The 5 Steps to More Efficient Learning:

1. Repetitionread/watch the material until you gain:

2.  Familiarity when you become familiar with the subject matter, you will gain:

3.  Confidenceonce you’ve achieved confidence, you are prepared to take the appropriate:

4.   Action and action, folks, begets:

5.  Resultsmeasure your results so that you may improve them, and then repeat the process!


Too many people today are “Locust Marketers.”  They rush through their learning material, taking what they can glean from the surface, moving on to the next thing that comes along.  This practice makes it nearly impossible to commit the material to memory … unless you have a photographic memory, of course! 

Just like with crops growing on a farm, the locusts lay waste to the fields when they breeze through.  It’s only when the farmer, through hard work and diligence, thoroughly harvests his fields that the full potential of the crops is realized.

These lessons, and most others, were designed to be studied and committed to memory,so that you may draw from them as needed, instead of rushing through them and potentially missing out on key information.

Time To Take Action!

What was the last information, be it a book, a seminar, a training tip from this site, or anything else, that really helped you achieve results in your business, but you haven’t repeated?  Or, maybe you haven’t reached a desired level of success due to some road block…

    This is so true. I need to truly implement this. I’m new to network marketing and I’m so motivated and so excited about my products, but I’m having trouble keeping everything in. I have two teenagers, I’m starting over with a 4 month old, sole provider, have a full time job, and always involved in some kind of daily activity!! So, needless to say It’s been difficult. I don’t want to be a locust! Love your tips and I just purchased MLM Blueprint. Also, John Rohn has had a big influence on me. Just want to say thank you for taking time to make these videos!

    Yeah Greg! Great tips looking forward to implementing them into my
    daily DMO!! Thank you!

    For me consistently taking action is my weakness, know the material, the process, but I always seem to get distracted (home school, care for parent, work form home). I set a schedule to do x,y,z sometimes it ends up z,x,y or no y if you know what I mean. But anyway staying focused is my biggest challenge (focus on actionable items that get the desired result). everything else is just activity (stuff).

      Hey Jeff,

      I Think your plight is what we all (as parents, children, busy human people ) struggle with…

      I’ve found the only solution is for a person to take a stand and establish their boundaries of what time will be allocated to what…

      It’s not until you learn to protect and respect your time, that others (including “emergencies”) will start to do the same.

      Think about it, how many “emergencies” have taken care of themselves or by others when you “just couldn’t” do them?

      The world did NOT fall apart and as a result someone else stepped up to handle the issue…

      …The reason many people find themselves dealing with the “emergencies” is because they allow themselves to be “emergencied” on(if that makes any sense ;o)

      Take a stand, establish your boundaries, and most important, STICK TO THEM YOURSELF (people will only honor your time, when you do).

    Hey Greg I watched your video good material I am going to go back ovewr everything in my ACN business and like a two yr. old watch all the training videos again so I can be more efficient. The best place where I have seen results n my business is in my presentation, saying is less is more in business is always best but then the worst results have been is where I did not say enough or I was so excited that I said to to much. In either case the one i have learned from you is to keep going and if you want successful results you have to be thorough and efficient, keep tilling the ground unitl you get a harvest. I have also learned to recruit up and not down look for people who want more out of life and not the low lifes.

    Very good technique. I know what I have to try out now. I hope it works

    • Greg Gomez III March 15, 2012 at 10:20 am #

      Hey Jesse,

      “Hope” no…

      do “until”.

      This leads to success, nobody ever “tried” anything that worked long term…

      Yoda wisdom rocks :O)

    I have been a Marketer skimming over LOT OF TRAINING mATERIAL and not repeating the training until it sticks so I have gotten alot of so so results so now I will go back and keep revisting the training material until it sinks in second nature then take consistent action to get great results.

    • Greg Gomez III March 15, 2012 at 10:22 am #

      That’s it Brother :O)

      IF I find something I like , i make it a point to review it at LEAST 7 times in a 21 day time frame (typically one right after the other).

      This burns it into your psyche more then anything else I’ve found (short of a traumatic experience).

      Go get em Reggie…

    Well Greg you have open my eyes!!! I think I have touched on all the five steps but not hit it out of the ball park yet. I for myself to do the repetition part over and over so I can gain the confidence in myself so I can then go out and talk to people without stumbling over myself.

    Good points. I still remember lyrics to songs on my kid’s vids from 20 years ago.

  13. Virginia March 13, 2012 at 1:11 am #

    You hit the nail on the head. Those points resonated with me and I am going to use them in my business and stop procrastinating and also learn to abosorb rather than breeze through the training material.

    I like how you used Martial Arts a a metaphor for learning info. Bruce Lee use to sat take what is useful an discard to rest. He also said be like water. Adapt to the situation adapt to the circumstances. Even in business. Skill set learn them like you said in its second nature. As the same with skill set with business.

    • Greg Gomez III March 13, 2012 at 1:36 pm #

      Thanks Gregory,

      “Be like the nature of water my friend…

      “You put it in a tea cup, and it becomes the tea cup, you put it in a bowl and it becomes the bowl…

      “Now, water is soft you can not hit it, but it’s strong enough to break rock…

    I realize that mine comes to confidence.

    What I was doing to before to build my business was working but taking to much time and kill off everything else i had around me!

    So I don’t want to go back to that, the R O I was not adding up and made the Miss a little upset!!

    When you think you have it,I found out you don’t so now its pushing myself to be the best at what I’m learning now…

    Damn learning curves…

    • Greg Gomez III March 13, 2012 at 1:39 pm #

      Yes Tommy!

      The dedication to learn what you need vs. what you “want” is the first step towards creating a bigger future for yourself…

      Keep taking measured-actions, weigh their results, improve, and repeat…

      The only true path to the results you want…

      That’s the learning curve that leads to financial freedom…

    Enjoyed the post as a recovering locust marketer!

    • Greg Gomez III March 13, 2012 at 1:40 pm #

      Hey Walter,

      Admitting the behavior is the first step to changing it ;o)

      Good on ya…
