So recently at my work their were rumors going around that the reason I was happier and smiling more was because I had a new boyfriend. So an employee, who I have to credit her braveness in asking me straight out right did tell me people have noticed a change in me and I seemed happier and they thought it was because I was with a man. I laughed it off and told her my change and happiness does not have to do with a man.
No offence to anyone but people thinking my happiness had to do with the fact they thought I found a man actually disappointed me. For how far we have come as woman and fighting for and continuing to fight for equal rights the question she asked me brought me back to what the 1950's must of felt like for woman back then. A woman's worth is about the man, husband she finds and the clean beautiful home she keeps and the well behaved children she has. The part of me that is a feminist was offended and the entrepreneur in me was glad my employees noticed a change in me.
See it isn't a man who was responsible for me being happier. The person responsible for my happiness was ME!
I made a decision two years ago to join doTERRA and do it as a business. My goal has always been to rank advance and continue to move up the ranks until I made enough to do doTERRA full time. Throughout growing my business I knew self development was important but didn't really get into self development full steam until I found myself stuck at the Elite rank for a year. So the last four months I have been reading books, watching free webinars, gone to Tony Robbins event, attended doTERRA convention, invested in and joined Eric Worre coaching program for a year. I have been and continue to do all these things to grow myself and become a better person and leader. I have come to understand in order for me to succeed in doTERRA a MLM company it starts within me and personal development is key to grow your business. Anyone who says they don't need personal development is lying to themselves. Even though I was initially annoyed that people thought all it took to change me and have me be happier was a man in my life it also made me realize the growth I know I have made now others are seeing it too. It's like a caterpillar becoming a butterfly. Even though the butterfly knows what it is doing and transforming into others don't see it until the butterfly emerges.
Anyways ladies or men. You don't need a significant other to make you happy. Happiness comes from within you and the choices you make and the personal growth you invest in yourself.
