Doing Something for the First Time…

When was the last time you did something for the first time?

Yesterday was my first time presneting in front of a group of people. I was not behind the scenes, or off camera, and it wasn’t only audio.  I was live and up in front of the room!  It is a great feeling to have taken the step.  Personal growth feels good!

Believe in yourself and step out of your comfort zone!  Only you can be the best at being you.  Although there is improvement to be made, the most difficult part is over after you’ve taken the step.  Now just keep the momentum going and let nothing stop you.  You have to have a success mindset.  First you must believe it, then go out and do it.

I strongly believe in investing in myself and my self development for my personal life as well as for the success of my business.  There is always something to learn or someone to learn from.  I am always a student.  It doesn’t matter if it is reading, listening to audiobooks, watching webinars or researching videos on YouTube.  Just keep learning and growing.

There are people that I want to know that you can do it no matter what others tell you, but what is most important is what you tell yourself.  Be careful who you listen to, including YOU!

I was very pleased to have family members at our event as well.  A big part of my WHY is to be able to do things with and for my grandchildren that I may not have been able to do with my own.  And having them there with us yesterday was a blessing!  #gratefulheart

Happy or Unhappy

Are You Happy?

This morning, while reading How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie, this sentence (I’m sure there’ll be more) stood out to me.  “It isn’t what you have or who you are or where you are or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy.  It is what you think about it.” 

It made me think about how some of us go about our day and not even acknowledge one another, let alone smile.  
Whether it be the person at the toll booth, the cashier at your local store, or just someone sitting next to you on your commute to work, sharing a simple smile can help change their mood, and yours.  If it makes it worse, well then that’s an entirely different issue.  
SMILE!  Someone needs it!

Obstacles

We all face obstacles at one point or another and will more than likely face more. Don’t let it stop you from getting to your goal. If you need help, ask for it! Even if you just need a little boost.  Pray, ask a friend, mentor, etc.  Everyone needs help or guidance at one time or another.  

Obstacles

Be A Blessing…

Share your sunshine and encouragement. Someone somewhere needs exactly what you have. Be a blessing…

“Press on – nothing can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Perseverance and determination alone are omnipotent.”– Calvin Coolidge

Tweak The Method

You can tweak the method, but stay committed to your goals.

Sometimes you may find certain things that you are doing are not working.  That doesn’t mean your goal is not attainable.  You just have to switch it up a bit and try a different method.  Never lose sight of your goals.  Make adjustments, but keep your eye on the prize!

Fear Is A Liar!

Are You On A New Journey In Your Life?  Or Thinking About Taking The Step To Your Next Phase In Your Life?

Change can be challenging for some of us.  The important thing is to not let the fear (or uncomfortable) feeling of change hold us back.  Embrace your life, embrace your change, embrace your future…let nothing hold you back.  You are worth it because you deserve it!

FEAR IS A LIAR!!!

Lion or Gazelle

You can’t outrun your fear – you have to face it.  Whether you’re the lion or the gazelle, fear of being killed or fear of starving, you have to face your fear and do what needs to be done…
