As I grow older, I have come to realise two major things in life: that regular jobs are just not going to provide me with the long-term security I need and that secondly, to make the positive changes I want in my life, I needed to change my mentality towards the opportunities presented to me. Successful members of WorldVentures seem to possess similar traits, as with any successful people. These are just five of the key attitudes that will help you run a successful WorldVentures business and make the life changes you want – realistically!
1. You Have A Strong Desire To Change Your Life
Coming into my thirties this August, I am plagued with the realisation that I needed to secure my future and I needed to do it NOW because we are only as young as we’ll ever be. However, change requires you to take action. The biggest fear we have is making the wrong choices but I truly believe that in life, there are no right or wrong choices – it is only how we respond to our choices that makes a difference.
Ask yourself what’s important to you. Do you want more time with your family? Do you want to watch your children grow? Do you want more freedom and flexibility in your life? Do you want to live the life of your dreams? If you have even as little as thought about these things, you already harbour a desire to change your life.
2. You Have Realistic Expectations
When I was presented with the WorldVentures business model, I was instantly sold. But it wasn’t the attractive perks nor the promises or unbeatable guarantees that sold me. Instead, it was that internal voice deep inside me that told me that I have what it takes to truly make the business flourish. I was determined and willing, with the intention of becoming successful at it.
When you’re faced with that initial business presentation, it is easy to get emotional and carried away with the photos of smiling vacationers in exotic locations, successful business members in their shiny BMWs, and the promise of a beautiful luxurious lifestyle. Want to know the truth? Those people probably worked relentlessly HARD at earning it. But this shouldn’t be a deterrent to jump at your opportunities, let it encourage you instead! Realistically, you only get what effort you put in.
3. You Are Willing To Put In The Time And Effort
As with any business, rewards don’t come to you fast and easy. You have to take a moment and acknowledge that the commitment requires hard work and perseverance. There are many scam reports online regarding MLM businesses but I noticed that all these negative reviews come from those who have unrealistic expectations of the business, who did not put in the time and effort necessary, or those who gave up halfway. Again the question remains: how badly do you want change? A small sacrifice is necessary, but you’ll find that it will help you balance your life more rather than hurt it. If you still struggle with time and effort, just remember that the business model was designed to be compatible as a part-time AND full-time business, so you really can’t find any excuses. The most important thing is to not give up!
“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” – Lao Tzu, Chinese philosopher
4. You Grab Opportunities And You Don’t Waste Time
As I write this post, I am not yet an official member of WorldVentures although I have applied for my membership. While waiting for confirmation, I have proceeded to set up this blog you are reading right now and secured a Google+ page to promote my business, including a Youtube channel. All this was completed even BEFORE I am an official representative. This is important to me because I WANT to be successful at this business and I believe in grabbing opportunities while it’s still there. Having these tools at hand, not only am I able to better market my business but also become a thought leader in my business.
5. You Have A Positive And Inspired Outlook On Life
The biggest favour you can do for yourself is to shed negative attitudes toward opportunities. I personally think WorldVentures is fantastic because it is driven by mentorship and teamwork so that you are never alone in your venture. Their networking conferences and training are there to help you should you hit a snag and support is always at hand. Granted, there are no shortcuts to success in life but there are plenty of mentors and guidance to help you along the way. These are knowledge, tools and resources that have been offered to help you succeed. They can’t help you if you only choose to see them as lies, fakes and scams.
I personally love what Matt Morris said in his WorldVentures 2013 presentation about solving his 1 million dollar debt: “I got very open-minded to doing something else.”
That is a very powerful skill – being open-minded. This rings true with a lot of our life’s experiences. We often only say yes when we can’t afford to say no anymore. So ask yourself how badly do you want change and to be successful at something? To begin a journey in any business, that open-mindedness is usually all it takes to get the ball rolling.

I love how WorldVentures discourages you from being pushy or try to hard sell their membership. Many of us are not natural born salespeople and modern consumers have become more aware of sales pitches, blatant advertising and such, that they have developed a natural immunity to it. That’s how WorldVentures have remained as a referral program at its core. You are never selling, only merely recommending. At the end of the day, if you decide to join, that’s great. If you don’t, that’s perfectly okay.
