Increase Your Frustration Quotient
Jerry DRhino Clark

Do you want to know an instant way to increase the amount of success you create and experience in your network marketing business and in life in general? It's simple. Just increase what I call your Frustration Quotient.

Looking back over my fifteen plus years in the network marketing industry, I've noticed a common denominator among the top 1% income earners. They're The Power Players... The Multi-Million Dollar Producers... The Trend Setters... The Record Breakers, you know, the people who are positively impacting the most lives and are making the most money. They all (and I don't use the word all very often) have a much higher Frustration Quotient than the MLM Hopers, Wishers, and Whiners,  the people who hope things will work out, who wish they will someday make it, and who whine when things aren't going their way. The fact is that the only way things will work out for you in this business is if you decide that they will work out, commit to having them work out, and effectively navigate through the challenges while you are making them work out.

Yes, it would be nice if someone just snapped their fingers and granted you the top position in your company with a few million dollars as pocket change to go with it. It would be nice if the people you are explaining your products and opportunity to would simply get started using and sharing the products along with you. It would also be nice if all the people who get started with you never quit. It would be nice if you didn't have to attend all of these trainings, seminars, and workshops; if you didn't have to read all of these books; and if you didn't have to listen to all of the tapes we suggest you listen to. However, things don't seem to ever work out that way, do they?

In other words, while you're building your network marketing empire, things will probably not always go the way you would like them to go; however, you want to still be able to Go, Go, Go, even when this is so, don't you?

The people who are able to deal with high levels of frustration in this society tend to be the most successful and fulfilled people in our society. Such people include Martin Luther King, Jr., Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Booker T. Washington, Helen Keller, John F. Kennedy, Winston Churchill, Walt Disney, Henry Ford, Rosa Parks, Nelson Mandela, and even Oprah Winfrey and Bill Gates. These people, and many more that I didn't name, have (or had) a much higher Frustration Quotient than most people in our society, which is one of the key ingredients that sets them apart from the masses. This is why the masses often look up these people, constantly talk about them (sometimes in a negative way), and hold them as heroes of our society...

People with a low Frustration Quotient tend to fold up the tent and leave the industry as soon as someone says "Boo."  These are also the people who tend to spend their entire lives in crisis and survival mode.

What are some of the areas that determine your Frustration Quotient? And, how can you increase yours so you may obtain the success you desire? Well, consider this...

Many people are not massively successful in their network marketing business or their life for that matter because they have a very low frustration quotient. What this ultimately means is that it doesn't take very much to get them in a disempowered state of mind (i.e.: a state of mind that isn't conducive to producing positive results).

By now you already know the importance of having a state of mind that will be more favorable towards you creating the activity necessary to produce the results you desire. You also understand that one of the cornerstones in building a successful network marketing business is to consistently expose your products and opportunity to others. The simple formula goes something like this: Expose to "no" people; make no money. Expose to "some" people; make some money. Expose to "lots" of people; make lots of money. This is what I call Networking 101 or The Elementics of Networking. (Yes, I just made up that word). 

Over my past 17 plus years in the network marketing industry, I've been a keen student and observer of people. I've noticed how most people will let the smallest issues ruin their entire day, week, month, year, and even life. Why? Because they have a low frustration quotient. Fortunately, it is possible to increase your frustration quotient. Here's how:

Go on a 30-Day Mental Fast

A mental fast consists of taking out the negative and disempowering input in your mind and saturating your brain with positive and empowering input instead. The primary thing is for you to structure your mind to be more comfortable accepting empowering information instead of disempowering information. A very effective 30-Day Mental Fast program is available in our e-store at Many people have already ordered this program and have e-mailed or faxed me their powerful results. I get pumped up when I read those messages, so keep them coming.

 Realize that We are Story Generating Beings 

Human being naturally make up stories. That's why we have so many novels, television programs, movies, legends, myths, etc. Unfortunately, most of the stories we make up are disempowering because that's how we've been programmed. This is one of the reasons why we go on the 30-Day Mental Fast in the first place. 

For example, if we happen to build up enough courage to talk to someone about our product or opportunity and the person says, "No. I am not interested in any of that snake oil or your pyramid thing,-- we typically run off with our tail between our legs. We then make up a story about how people in this country are closed-minded to alternative ways of healing themselves and generating income. Sound familiar? I hear a version of this in just about every country I visit, and I travel quite a bit. As far away as Sweden, Denmark, Norway, England, Australia, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Germany, Austria, New Zealand, France, Canada, and on and on people say things like, "If only I lived in this country or that country then it would be easier for me to prospect and build my business," or "I don't have anymore warm market to talk to and I can't afford any leads so how I'm I suppose to build my business?" or "My best prospect didn't join and she is really smart because she got a degree from Harvard Business School and she really knows a thing or two about business analysis. I guess that means something is wrong with my opportunity."

No, No, No. Most likely there is absolutely nothing wrong with your opportunity; what's wrong is your frustration quotient. It's too low. You let the little things get to you and wipe you out because you start to put too much energy in this stuff. Now here's the catch. Since we as a species (Homo Sapiens) are story-generating beings, why not make up something that will be empowering instead of disempowering? For example, when someone says he or she doesn't want any of your "snake oil or pyramid type stuff," why don't you make the story to read that there are still a lot of helpless souls out there who don't have a clue about how to participate abundantly in a free enterprise system? After all, if everyone understood the merits of network marketing and thought it was great, we wouldn't have the opportunity that we currently have in this industry.

When you don't have the money to purchase leads and you think you've talked to all of your warm market, why don't you make the story describe how this scenario gives you a perfect chance to meet some new, exciting, motivated people who are just waiting to hear from you? When the smartest person on the planet says "no" why don't you make that story explain that you don't have to worry about the government or large corporations finding smart people to work for them. After all, our economic system can only sustain itself if a great number of people choose to be broke all of their lives. Volunteering to work for a living instead of designing a life is necessary for our country to operate. Unfortunately, this is the destiny of the masses.

 Make up stories of empowerment and watch what happens.

Stop Being a Reactive Active
Most people get frustrated easily because they simply react to whatever stimulus is put before them. They don't take the time to examine their feelings and the reasons for them. Before getting frustrated, disappointed, depressed, or sad about your next perceived negative experience, stop and examine it. Discover what you can learn from it and figure out how you can actually gain from the situation. I've noticed that the most successful people on the planet do this. They are able to turn agony into defeat, stumbling blocks into super success, and fear into faith. They are able to transform a victim mentality into a victory mentality. In short, they are able to turn frustration into fascination. So the next time you find yourself in a disempowered state of mind, stop, take a few deep breaths, and start looking for the magnificent fascination that's in your momentary frustration.

Stop majoring in the minors and stop letting the petty stuff turn you into a pathetic soul. Use the power that you were born with to rise above the masses and create the life you desire and deserve. It's available for you now. Every day in every way work on increasing your frustration quotient and you may be surprised when you find yourself living in the Land of Paradise.
