Spring Cleaning-Your Mind!
Do you feel better yet? How many windows, drawers and baseboards do you think you'd need to scrub before you feel like you've accomplished enough and are satisfied? If you shook out all the blankets and hung them outside in the fresh air, emptied every kitchen cabinet, wiped down the shelves, and organized under your bathroom sinks, would you call it a day and your house spring cleaned? Why do we "spring clean" anyway? Why not "winter clean" when we have more time stuck indoo
Two Moments in Time
We don't ever really know where someone's beginning began. We can't say for certain what was the start of someone's end. We might think a person has burst through the ribbon at the end of their successful race or by observation guess that they have given up and won't make it to the finish. But in truth, we can't see the details of their past, the coming of their future, the place where their gun signaled and they took off, or the exact location of their designated finish l
What Kind of Ripple?
You’ve heard this before. Every action creates a reaction. Sometimes we call it the ripple effect. And sometimes? We need to hear things again. And again, and again. Every choice you make, every direction you move in, creates a ripple. Sometimes in a good direction and sometimes not. One of the easiest ways to visualize this truth is by watching a small pebble be dropped into a body of water. It’s just a small pebble, being dropped in one place. But it has a huge ripp
Toilets, Hot Irons and Your Business!
Let's face it. We're all busy. We only have so many hours in a day and no one gets any extra! It doesn't matter if you have 10 kids or none, work from home or out of the house, are single or married. We all get 24 hours-to work, sleep, eat and play! So...how do some people seem to accomplish so much? And some? So very little. Join me for 5 minutes in my bathroom, and I'll share one of my secrets to making the most of every day and going to bed at night satisfied with that day
Have You Even Tried to Move?
No rush and no pressure, but when you are ready. Ask yourself this question: "What is holding me back?" Ask yourself when you are alone. When you are ready to be honest with your answer. Ask yourself when you have finally gotten to that point where you are almost shouting in your own head, "ENOUGH! Enough is enough! I am ready to do this!" Whatever your "this" is? Doesn't matter. It matters to you! But it doesn't matter if your "this" is different than my "this". We all hav
Do You Want Pity? Or Progress?
When most people come to a dead end, with a cross road, and are faced with the choice of turning left or right, they make a choice. Even if they hesitate momentarily, they can clearly see that standing still and going straight are not options. They might evaluate, try to see (or even guess!) whether turning left or right is the better choice. But eventually turn they will. Coming to this cross road might make them uncomfortable. For some? Being faced with that choice? Might
You are Not a Bear!
A bear eats and eats and puts on the pounds in preparation for a long winter nap! He escapes the cold and snow and hunger by sleeping that entire season away! In the direct sales industry, I have found it to be true that some months are easier selling months than others. Like, for example, the months when it's easy for bears to find food! But unlike bears, we can not store up fat, hibernate (not sell or work) all winter long and expect to burst out into spring with a still s
Today is Your Day!
And tomorrow, and the next day, and the next. So long as we have breath! But the trick is to focus on them-as they come, one at a time! And the even harder part? Is letting go of yesterday. We have a tendency to beat ourselves up for what we didn't accomplish yesterday and allowing that to stop us for moving forward today! Forget yesterday!!!! So what if you didn't finish your to-do list? Who cares if you didn't make those follow up calls? No big deal if your house was left
What are You Feeding?
Unless you live in a bubble, or some world I've never heard of, distractions are pretty much impossible to avoid. Some things? We can accomplish even though we are constantly distracted We ladies can be amazing multi-taskers!! Like; talking on the phone and cleaning! Or folding laundry while calling out spelling words for children to practice. But let's be honest for a minute. Accomplishing work, for our business, is not something easily done with a barrage of distractions c
Chasing the Wrong Rabbit?
I get it...you have bills to pay, children to feed, vacations to take and more! Money might not buy happiness, but it sure buys a lot of things we need to live and things we want and things we think we can only dream about that might make us happy! But here's the problem. When we focus on the money, and spend so much time and energy just trying to keep our head above water earning it, we lose all the joy in our journey. We are no longer chasing a rabbit of happiness..but one
