Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favour and a good name in the sight of God and man. Trust in the LORD with all of your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. (Prov 3:3-6) And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose (Romans 8:28) Be the Change you wish to see in the world (Mahatma Gandhi)
Follow Me On
This morning as I was jogging, I had an Epiphany. "Each workout gets you closer to your goal", as I pondered that thought, I felt the sweat start beading down my forhead, the pain in my legs made me want to stop, I was hot, uncomfortable and I was feeling tired. I then imagined a finish line in front of me, people cheering, my friends and family were there, my son was jumping up and down with enthusiasm and everyone was cheering, GO! Go! GOOOO! I kept going, each stride felt easier, I felt like I was on top of the world, I felt this overwhelming amount of strength build up inside me like I could conquer anything!
Yes!! another 45 minute workout accomplished. My body was covered in sweat, my clothes drenched and I felt amazing! As I was cooling down, I began counting my blessings and gave thanks for the will to keep going.
Tears started to pour from my eyes, my emotions just completely took over, the epiphany began and my mind began to ponder. Sometimes we get so caught up and busy that we don't have time to think, evaluate and set new goals for ourselves. I thought about my journey for the last 10 months. Where I was, and where I am and where I want to be and that it IS possible! Everything is possible - if you believe and never quit. Anything is achievable but you have to put in the workout. Each step in life gets you closer and closer to your destination. Beit, your weightloss goal, your financial goal, your career, your home business, personal achievements, improving your family life, marriage, relationship. YOU are in charge. If you're planning on giving up when your legs start hurting or you're not seeing immediate results, then you will fail. You have to get up, run as fast as you can and endure the blood, sweat and tears along the way. The successful path is not an easy path. You will encounter obstacles, but what will make you tick IS to keep going. What is your WHY that makes you CRY?
In October 2010, I was in a crisis situation (not many people knew this because I was so prideful), I didn't want anyone to know that my life wasn't perfect. I always had a smile on my face, always helped everyone (beit financially, emotionally) I was there for everyone. Inside I was hurting so terribly. I was about to lose everything and I was scared out of my mind. I didn't know where to turn, besides I was in my 30's, I should be able to cover all my bills, I'm an adult, I need to be more responsible. A single Mom, working downtown (15-20hr commute/wk), my son was in daycare from 7am-6pm, my bills were piling up and my paycheck seemed to get smaller each year instead of bigger. What do I do? I thought to myself. How can I possibly get another job, I need to be a Mom too and my son needs me. My credit cards are maxed, the bank is calling me because my mortgage payments bounced, my Credit Card companies were calling because my payments were late - it was a downward spiral and I was STUCK. Luckily my family was able to help me out and help me get through most of my months, but what they didn't know is that I was charging $500-$1000 a month on my cc just to get by. I was in debt, I was broke, I couldn't sleep, full of anxiety and I was scared. The Sunday before Halloween, I bumped into a friend at Church, and I shared my struggles of what was going on in my life presently. She expressed great concern and urged to help me immediately. She gave me a sample of the Vi-Shake, she was promoting a 90 day Challenge. I brought it home, made it that day and I absolutely loved it. I wanted more but was too shy to ask. Fast forward back to church. When I bumped into my girl again that Sunday, she asked me how I was doing, I broke down. I was so sad, my emotions took over and I confided in "my new friend". She told me that she could help. I trusted her, and I'm soooo incredibly glad I did.
I joined Visalus as a distributor on Nov 1st, 2010 and I caught on to the Vision and ran with it. In 29 days I qualified for my BMW.
To make a long story short I had the desire to achieve it and the determination to keep going no matter what road block was in my way.
I have to give huge thanks to Paula for introducing this challenge to me. She stepped out of her comfort zone and planted a seed. That seed has been planted, rooted and this tree is growing and transforming so many lives. I have an amazing team and I am so grateful.
I achieved Presidential Director last month - and I sit here in awe and think, what if I never walked through that door of opportunity, what if I said to myself 'nah I can't do it', what if, what if, what if!!
I am so glad that I decided to jump through that door, explore my surroundings and benefit from that seed that was planted.
So bottom line: A door of opportunity has opened for you - what are you going to do about it? Sit there and peek inside or are you going to run through it and make it happen!! Where do you see yourself tomorrow, a month from now, 6 months from now, a year, 2-5. Where do you want to be? If you don't make changes today to better tomorrow you will be in the exact same spot as you were or worse. Live your best life NOW. Create your better future! Start today!
There are two types of people - the ones that sit on the beach and watch the wave and others that ride it -- which are you?
Lastly: NEVER GIVE UP ---- NEVER EVER and you WILL succeed at whatever you do!! :-) Five figures monthly within a year - is not too shabby...but bottom line, it's not about me -- it's about YOU!! Let's create your story!!
Have a beautiful day!!
