I put this up on my facebook page, as it is something I truly believe in. It’s not a quote from anyone famous, it’s a quote from me. A small speck, in a world of billions of people. This is something I tell myself a lot. Whether it be for my Younique business, everyday life, or my tattoo business.
Whether your sales of say, 3d mascara (or whatever it is you sell), are down for the day – or if you’ve just lost the transmission on your vehicle, always remember that better things ARE coming. You just have to put the past behind you, and move on. Keep working towards your goals, and MAKE that great thing happen.
This thought is something I try to instill in my team, too. It’s ok to have a bad day. It’s ok that things don’t go the way you planned for them to go. It’s even ok to just step back from the world for a day, and regroup. What is NOT ok, is to say, “Oh, this day/week/month has been the most horrible of my life, I might as well just give up.” Never, ever, ever give up. Never.
No matter what your goals are, keep striving towards them. Keep heading up that hill, even if to you, the top is yet to appear in sight. You’d be surprised how much closer the top is, than you may think. As someone in the Direct Sales, and Network Marketing worlds, I can tell you that not everyday is going to be easy. Not every day will show results. However, those are the days that you need to continue to work, and to push yourself. If you don’t, who will?
I, as a leader, am here for my team. However, I can’t MAKE them do the work. I can’t hold their hands every step of the way. I can be there to answer phone calls, and talk for an hour, in time of crisis. I can be there to offer advice, that has worked for me. And, I love being able to help others meet, and exceed their goals! If I didn’t, I wouldn’t be a “leader”, I would be an “opportunist”, using others to get to the top. That’s not in me. If my team does not end up surpassing me, then I haven’t done something right.
I know I kind of veered off the normal path, today. However, there is much more to my business than just selling 3D Mascara and Younique makeup. That is what I get to do, for myself. Behind the scenes, I am always reading, learning, and teaching, so that others can get to where they want to be. If not, I’d be writing 3 or 4 blog posts a day. 😉 In the process, boring all of you, endlessly.
Instead, I choose to be a real leader, and help not only myself, but others, too. That right there, is what I consider to be the qualities of a leader. Helping others, help themselves.
(For the record, I am totally aware that I just gave the world access to find me on Facebook. And, yes, you are welcome to add me on there!)
Have a wonderful day!
