HAH! I'll bet you're saying, "That's easy. The opposite of achievement is failure."
Not so fast, pal!
Oh, I can see your point. Failure is definitely the opposite of achievement. But think about this one for a minute:
"The opposite of achievement is perfectionism."
OO-oo-ooh! The more you insist on perfection, the less you will get done. The problem with perfection is, it takes FOREVER to achieve it. There is always, always, always one more thing you can do to get closer to perfect. And there are a ton of MLMers always looking for that "one more thing."

I'm a big believer in the 80/20 Rule which says that "80% of the result comes from 20% of the effort." In network marketing - or anything else - you are way better off to act now and get 80% of the result, than to wait a day or a week or a month or a year, until everything is perfect.
In the time that passes while you are getting everything right, somebody else will have blundered on ahead and completed 20 or 50 or 300 or 1000 actions, and you will be eating their dust.
Perfection would be great, but here is the price you must pay for it: nothing ever gets finished. The road to success lies in doing lots of the right actions and finishing them - not perfectly, but sufficiently. The more you act on your logical plan, the more achievement you will have.
Perfectionism truly is the opposite of achievement. If you recognize that irony, you'll be a lot closer to reaching your goals.

The people who tell you that to be successful in MLM, you've got to become a salesperson are ... the salespeople! If you haven't noticed, they are very arrogant. They believe that what they do is the ONLY correct way to do the business, and anyone who doesn't do it THEIR way is a loser.
Don't fall for it.
Trying To Sell Absolutely Does Not Work!
Ninety-two per-cent of the world's population - like you and me - is sales resistant. They don't like to sell. They don't like to be sold. You go into a store, looking for a shirt or a pair of shoes, the sales clerk comes up, what do you say?
"I'm just looking."
People do not want to be sold. And then you get into network marketing and some upline superstar space commander guru leader tells you, "OK. Start by making a list of your friends & family." And the plan is to turn YOU into that pushy, aggressive salesperson that nobody likes.
Selling does not work in this business. Even if you're one of the 8% of the population who can do it, you'll never be able to duplicate, because 92% of the people who join you simply will not sell.
I go on websites and see brand new companies TODAY, and their "training" is, "Make a list of your friends & family." That's what the industry did 50 years ago. Today is a new day.
You can't be successful trying to sell. Instead -
