Ok, so I want to be really real here for a minute. Remember when I said I am an achiever? I’m 36 and I still remember how far I was from the top of the class in highschool. So yeah I set goals. I set insane reach for the moon types of goals! I have all these expectations of when I’m going to promote in certain time frames and huge sales and recruiting goals every single month. My company is really great at giving us incentives. I mean really really great. Right now its so great I can earn a voucher to pay for a trip to Disney for my family. I could take everyone on a cruise or we could go to Disneyworld. We’ve never been to Disneyworld. I actually cried when they announced the incentive.
But what happens if I don’t hit my goals? Let me tell you I often don’t meet my goals and I am completely crushed. So disappointed that my sales weren’t $1000 higher for the quarter or I didn’t get as many recruits as I would have liked. But then I miss the blessing that I have been given. How amazing my sales have really been and how many ladies have joined my team that have been impacted by Thirtyone.
I guess its all about some kind of balance and love ourselves. I’ve been really focusing on being happy for landing in the stars. This is something I’m really working on. I am so happy for my friends and colleagues that are crushing the goals I dream about! Maybe there are even people that look up to me and think wow I wish I could do what she’s doing.
So I’m making a new resolution. I’m going to love me and my progress. When I hit a bump in the road, which will happen its the nature of this business, I’m going to take a deep breath and think about everything that I have accomplished. Then I’m going to love myself and focus on what kind of amazing experiences I can have in the future.Michelle
