Other People’s Opinions are one of the most common things that hold us back. Keep us stuck. Keep us making up stories about other people.
We have deep fears about what others think and say about us. And, why is this? Do they pay our bills? Feed us? Care for our children? Are they really spending as much time thinking about us as we like to think that they are?
Do you spend much time thinking about and judging what others are doing?
Why? Or why not?
We spend a heck of a lot of time “thinking” that other people are thinking things about us. Most of the time, we “think” that their thoughts about us are negative.
Here’s a little secret - other people aren’t thinking about you as much as you think they are. People don’t spend that much time thinking outside of themselves and their own situation. Do you?
And even if...
We have fears; we are uncertain; we are not feeling up for the task and so we procrastinate.
When you are feeling the urge to put off, or procrastinate what you know are the tasks that will move you forward in your network marketing business, STOP.
Take 3 deep breaths. Just try it.
Ask you breathe, clear your mind. Bring your thoughts to your breathing and then ask -
Why am I procrastinating or avoiding the action steps that I know will move my business forward?
Be very open to what comes up for you. Your mind will always seek to give you the answer. The key is for us to dial in and really listen. HEAR what the answer is.
Write it down and analyze it. Ask yourself - why? Why is this stopping me? Why am I allowing this to hold me back from pursuing my goals? My hopes? My dreams?
Is it a person? Who is it? Why do they matter? Is it their...
Daily Mindset Work is the work that every millionaire and every billionaire I’ve ever heard interviewed practice.
It’s what I shared last week about managing your mind. Doing your thought downloads when you have limiting beliefs.
I teach my clients how to set an income goal and a date. And then do the work in their minds, on paper each day, to get them to the goal.
Everything is created in the mind first. The device you are listening to this on was first in someone’s mind. They thought about it; probably wrote ideas and plans, tried, tested, failed and feared. And, got up and kept going.
The chair you sit on, your bed, the car you drive, music - everything was created in the mind first.
Your success has to come from your mind first. Connect your thoughts to the right feelings of who you must become in order to have what you want. Then, the ideas...
Happy Thanksgiving to those in the US, and here’s to a beautiful day if you are not in the US or are listening to this another day.
Let’s talk about gratitude in a new way, given the crazies of 2020, and how to have it in spite of and because of what we have and are experiencing in the world with the Pandemic.
Gratitude is a word that is often and easily bantered around.
"Start with gratitude. Gratitude gives you more of what you want. Do a daily gratitude journal."
Bleh, bleh, bleh....
What is gratitude, really? And how do we manage to feel grateful when we are in a challenging situation?
Life is 50/50. Always. We have joy, love, peace, happiness. We also have, conversely pain, grief, disappointment, frustration.
We can’t know the bountiful fall harvest without the scorching suns of summer. We can’t know the blooms of spring without the frozen ice of winter.
It gives us lemons,...
A better concept for Overcoming Fear is pushing past fear. Fears never completely go away. Some do, in certain areas. Practice and repetition create this.
In order to get there, though, we must push past those fears. We must learn to “Do it Scared.”
We can do tough things. The hard things. I can, and so can you.
The challenge is that your brain is stuck in primitive mode. At least the part of your brain that is running the show, typically.
That part of your brain says - no, don’t do that. It might be uncomfortable. It might be unpleasant. It might bring up feelings and emotions, and do you really want to go there?
This is where you take charge. You pay attention. You become aware. You do your daily thought downloads. You do them multiple times a day if you find yourself getting stuck. You stop, and write down your thoughts. And, you practice some tough love...
My life completely changed when I began a sincere morning routine and daily thought work process.
I have done pieces of it for years, starting as far back as junior high school, with a journal required for my English Creative Writing class. I didn’t totally grasp the benefit back then, but I was aware how much better I felt after getting my thoughts down on paper.
Through the years, I have done a number of things, including journaling, affirmations, visualization, meditation, yoga, and reading plenty of self help and motivational books.
In 1997, I went on a TV, news and negativity fast and have really never picked it back up. I rarely watch the news, and don’t have any shows I binge watch.
After reading Hal Elrod’s book, "The Miracle Morning" and listening to his podcast, I got re-energized to put it all into a formula that works for me.
It’s based loosely on his SAVERS format, and I mix things up some days to fit me:
What is graspy energy vs certain energy in your business? We give off energy and when you are feeling desperate, or graspy, vs certain, calm and cool, your prospect feels it.
My client asks - I can’t get anyone interested in my business. Why am I not signing up people? I am committed, consistent, yet nothing happens.
I reviewed some social media content. Language matters. Phrases/words like - Get, BUY my stuff, no one, everyone, can’t, join my team.
Grasp energy is rushed. Focused on oneself. Certain energy is calm, poised, solutions oriented,
What is the energy you are going into a situation with? A conversation? A social media post? An email? Creating a product.
Creating results its best when it is easy, effortless and elegant.
WHO are you and who do you serve?
I am the premier coach for women in Network Marketing.

Network Marketing success requires Accountability for 80% of those in the business. That’s because 80% lack the internal motivation to get the job done. It doesn’t mean you are bad if you fall in that 80%. It just means you have to push yourself harder.
Can you do that? Will you do that?
As I shared last week, tracking is important and this is what creates accountability to yourself.
A vision board that clearly paints the picture of your goals and desires is also a great accountability tool. Just spend 5 minutes each day going through the photos and what’s on the board and imagine when it’s done. FEEL what that will be like.
If that’s not enough, consider getting an accountability buddy. Someone who will push you and keep you accountable. And, you will do the same for them. I don’t recommend anyone upline or downline. It needs to be someone...
When you aren’t experiencing the success you desire, remember this - nothing has gone wrong. Let’s discuss Network Marketing as a success equation.
Nothing has gone wrong.
Your business and success is like a Science Experiment or a Math Equation.
When you begin to think of it in these terms, you open yourself up for inevitable success, because you know that it is solvable and there is an answer or solution.
YOU create the success in your life. Only You. It’s easy to say “yes, but, there are other people and factors, especially in Network Marketing.”
And, you would be right, partially.
When you align your thinking, and therefore your energy, with like minded people, and you are committed, consistent and visible, you will attract the right people and situations to you.
Nothing is outside of you. I do truly believe this and it is freeing for me. I am much...
You can’t measure what isn’t tracked. As we discussed last week, your calendar is your best coaching tool and indicator of where you are and what you are committed to.
Your calendar is also a great place to track the steps you are taking in your business.
It’s where you can track meeting new people. Each day. Offline or online.
It’s where you track who you shared what you do with.
And, it’s where you track who you offered and asked to try your products and your business.
My focus word for 2020 is accomplished. Each day, I track what I have done in the areas that create clients and income for my business. At the end of the day, I check the box of accomplished on the ones I hit my goals.
And, there is a big glaring emptiness where I didn’t.
This makes me want to show up better and different...
