On video 1 of my 4 Day MLM Challenge I mention that your goal in your first year of Network Marketing should be mainly focussed on development, and I recommended reading 12 books in 12 months, so around 1 per month!
I actually got into the personal development arena when I was 5 years old, I was listening to cassette tapes of Jim Rohn, Larry Thompson, Bill Britt, Dexter Yaeger and Zig Ziglar.
How? Well my mother and father joined the Network Marketing industry in 1987 before I was even born!
I don’t even mention the books those guys wrote or were a part of, simply because you need to listen to people like that. At the bottom of this post is a link to a video that you HAVE to watch!
Most of you might have already closed down this page thinking,
“there’s no chance I am doing that!”
If you are still here then trust me, at some point, for you to earn a significant income in this industry, you will need to read a lot of books, and in all honesty 12 books is absolutely nothing!!!
I don’t like big books, I am someone who reads a book until I understand the main point and then I close it and move onto the next one.
With that being said, I have a list of 12 “must read” books that I highly encourage you to complete within your first year of Network Marketing, and if you duplicate this throughout your teams, trust me, you will have one of the strongest teams in your company, if not the industry!
Most people think reading is a waste of time, or they think they don’t have the time!
Here are two facts to understand before we get into the list, there is method to my madness don’t worry!
- The average reading person’s reading speed is 300 words per minute!
- There are 300 words in an average personal development book!
That means, it will take the average person 1 minute to read 1 page of a personal development book!
Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki – 207 pages
Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook by Gary Vaynerchuk – 229 pages
Questions Are The Answers by Allan Pease – 152 pages
Go For No by Richard Fenton and Andrea Waltz – 105 pages
The Four Year Career by Richard Bliss Brooke – 79 pages
The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy – 192 pages
Beach Money by Jordan Adler – 144 pages
GoPro by Eric Worre – 160 pages
Building An Empire by Brian Carruthers – 272 pages
Unshakeable by Tony Robbins – 256 pages
You might be reading this list thinking,
“There is no way I am going through all of those books in the next 12 months!”
But think about it, there are a total of 2,111 pages!
Remember what I said earlier, you can read one page every one minute, this will mean it will take you 2,111 minutes to complete all the above books!
That would be huge for your development, trust me!
You can change your life in just over 35 hours!
For a total of 35 Hours 10 Minutes 48 Seconds you will be a totally different person. You might not notice it right away but seriously, you will be!
Now lets break this down a bit:
On a monthly basis, that is 176 pages per month, just under 3 hours!
On a weekly basis, that is 41 pages per week, just over 40 minutes per week!
On a daily bases, that is less than 6 pages per day, just under 6 minutes per day!
So in fact, with just 6 minutes per day, you can totally transform your life after 1 year. What would that mean for you?
There are of course many other great books, like Think And Grow Rich, Your First Year In Network Marketing and The Cashflow Quadrant, but the about list is what I really share with people just starting out in Network Marketing as there is so much to learn from these books.
As well as the above, you MUST complete these two videos:
I hope you will decide to become a book reading machine, because remember, it doesn’t take long and you will have the habit created. You will actually start reading on the way to work, whilst in the bath, maybe even on the toilet, just 6 minutes each day and you will be a new person!
Thanks for reading and understanding, now it is time to get into action!
