I've been drawn to discussing success lately...I look back at my last several posts and that's what I've written about. Not because I am trying to sell you anything, but because it is what is needed, now more than ever.
We live in a society of wanting the quick fix. We don't want to do the hard stuff.
But let's be real. You know what breeds success? Getting up. Showing up. Making small efforts. Every. Single. Day.
People think that being successful should be easy. That it should happen overnight. And then they give up when it doesn't.
These people are the ones who say network marketing and direct sales don't work. They say it's too hard. Too much work. Too [fill in the blank with whatever word you want].
Yes. It takes work. Everything worth having takes work. Duh.
But here's the thing. I don't want to bust my butt for 30-plus years working to fund somebody else's business.
So I get up. I show up. I make those small daily efforts. Even on days I don't want to. Even when I'm feeling discouraged or down because I've gotten NO after NO.
Because you know something? Every NO leads me closer to the next YES. And I wouldn't be serving others if I didn't share the amazing products or opportunity I have with them.
It's not for everybody. I get that. But how do I know if they're a NO or a YES if I don't at least present the opportunity to them?
So whatever it is, whatever you are doing, reach out, contact, inform others of what you are doing. Let's support one another and our growing small, home-based businesses.
As my post from last week stated, it is the way of the future.
Let's not hate on one another or be annoyed that someone is reaching out to you about their business. Be proud they thought of you. Be supportive of them, even if you buy nothing from them.
Remember, this business is how they are helping to support their family.
It may not be conventional or what we are used to seeing, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't support it. We support those small, local, brick and mortar storefront businesses. This is the exact same thing, just without the storefront.
So in this month of Thanksgiving, let's be grateful and supportive for ALL the small businesses, home-based, storefront or otherwise.
I hope you have a blessed and beautiful week.
With love and wellness,
