When reaching for your goals you may have,
a bad day,
a bad week or even
a bad month.
As long as you don't give up
you'll get there.
The saying above is from a post I put on my Instagram account for Healthy For Life recently. It is something I came up with to remind myself to stay on track with my goals. A lot of times what happens is, when we fall off track from reaching our goals, in the time we planned, a lot of people give up. The goals could be anything. For me, my goals are to be fit and healthy and drive my business.
As of today I have been a wellness advocate for a year. In that time I have spent a lot of time developing myself in many ways. I continue to learn daily even now different ways to use essential oils, how they work in the body and how they help me and those around me improve our overall health. I try to attend many different events.
I recently went to two different essential oil events. The one held by my up line was the most impactful. There were many different speakers all talking about the business. By the end of the day I can honestly say I was a mess inside, so full of emotion. I even tried to thank my highest up line for running the event and when I went to speak I started to cry and could barely get my words out. Needless to say I felt like an idiot after because couldn't contain my emotions and Lord knows what she was thinking.
The reason I was so full emotion on this training day is because it was exactly what I needed. Anyone who is building a business reading this will be able to relate. Building a business is definitely a journey. In the beginning you are super energized, super excited about the potential this business has to offer. You tell everyone you know and sign up a bunch of people. You are thrilled by the bonus cheques you receive, the bonus points you get and you think "Wow I can do this!" After some time you have less and less people it seems to reach out to. You still invite people to classes but then instead of having 8-10 people, it becomes like 2-4 people till you start hosting and have no one shows up. Wow, you want to talk about heart break ask any Wellness Advocate about their first no show class.
The first speaker of the day spoke to us about our 'why'. But not why we started as a wellness advocate but why we weren't where we wanted to be and what was stopping us. She had us close our eyes, put one hand over our heart and visualize the flame inside we had for our business. I pictured mine flickering. In the last few months my flame inside had been flickering because I began to questioned whether doing the business was worth it and if I have what it takes to get to Presidential Diamond that I once envisioned. In the exercise we learned what is stopping all of us is we forgot our 'WHY'. As we did this exercise I had tears falling down my face because I then remembered ALL my whys of why I started doing this business in the first place. My 'why' was because I wanted to improve my health so to help avoid scary news that a lump in my breast might be cancerous. My 'why' was because at the time I started this business my 40hr a week full time job was killing me on the inside and I was coming home angry and upset and taking it out on my son. I wanted the financial freedom they talked about that could happen with this company. I wanted to be able to be with my son and not be all stressed out. I wanted to be able to go on school field trips with him and be there when he got home from school. I wanted financial freedom so not to worry about providing for my son and I as a single mother. I say wanted but it is in fact 'I WANT' all those things.
I think the reason I was so emotional by the end of this day is I truly knew for sure this is what I want and I will need to put in the extra hard work to get it. Currently as of this post I have reached Elite but solidified today that to get to Diamond it means a lot more sweat and tears to get there, but even though it will be hard, it will be so worth it!
I look forward to the day I reach my goal of Diamond so I can read this post again and see how far I came in my business. I look forward to that day.
There are so many people that have inspired me today and so many more people out there I look up to that preach to be your best self.
If you are considering becoming a wellness advocate just know your 'why' and know that you will work harder for this than probably anything else in your life especially if you are looking to become Presidential Diamond. There's a reason only 2% reach this level.
I want to be the 2%!!
