So I haven’t written a blog in awhile. Haven’t posted about my business in awhile. Haven’t been real active in my groups either. I can tell you until I’m blue in the face that its because I’ve been busy and stressed but that isn’t the whole truth. Yes I’ve been extremely stressed out over family issues, money, friends, marriage, mommy stuff, life in general. However, all of that is not the sole reasons behind my lack of involvement. The truth is I started to give up. I started to give up because I felt like a failure. I felt like every single person that has told me they were interested in my products were starting to make excuses on why they haven’t purchased anything because they were not actually interested. My problem is I have a huge heart! I want to help as many people as possible and I know that my products can do just that. But I’m also extremely shy and when those two mix I tend to get taken advantage of ALOT! I’m also the type of person that will analyze every situation and everything that is said or even not said so I tend to know when I’m being taken advantage of or lied to and that touches on my inner child and hurts my heart. I don’t want people to be rude to me of course but I can handle someone telling me the truth if they are not actually interested in my products. I would prefer the truth rather than thinking they are interested and feeling like I’m hounding them when I follow up with them. What’s even worse is I thought I was becoming good online friends with some of them but when I try and follow up they don’t respond to me at all.
Yes I run a business and yes I need sales to make that business grow but you know what? I really like meeting new people and having people to talk to when I need it. I try my best to be a friend, even an online friend and I tell someone when I’m not interested in their product but I would still like to be their friend and I just ask for the same curtousy.
So needless to say all of that depressed me, and throw in all the stress and I was a ticking time bomb!! So yes I was giving up. I was giving up on my business. I was giving up on friendships. I was even giving up on my weight loss.
While my family was dealing with our family issues we had to make a trip up north. While there I made a sale for my business and I didn’t even try too. I got excited and started thinking “hey maybe I’m not totally out of the game yet”. It wasn’t until yesterday, while I was trying to figure out how we were gonna pay rent, that I looked at my boys playing with their toys and remembered exactly why I choose to work from home and to lose weight.
The weight loss started out being just for me and my health but now its also for my boys. So they can have a mom that can run and play with them and not hurt or get too winded. As for my business its for them too. For me to be able to stay home and care for them and not have to have someone else raise them while I go work for minimum wage. I also chose my company because it gives me the chance to help people. People in need of relief, people wanting to go chemical and toxin free, people wanting to change their families lives, people wanting to live healthier lives. I can help people with so many things and I plan on doing just that.
GIVING UP IS NOT AN OPTION!!
Today I jumped back in feet first. I’m going to try to host 3-4 classes for my business this month and I’m hoping that one of them will be an in home class.
Remember when I say you can do anything you put your mind to. If you have the failure mentality than you will fail. If you have the give it your all mentality than you will succeed. It won’t be easy, it won’t be quick, but it will be well worth it.
Don’t let anyone steal your shine! If you have a huge heart like me and you like helping people than do it!! If they take advantage of you than move on but always shine!
It’s up to You to make your dreams come true!!
