My Luck is about to change…

Okay so first let me get out my negative nellies (sorry I gotta) But then I can jazz you up with how excited I am! Things have just been in a slump over the holidays and there has been more bad news than good. I am also really hating working a J.O.B right now Uggghhh. So I missed Jamboree and I was so disappointed. But family first. So tonight it was back to success night and I was really excited. All the girls shared what they learned at Jamboree and there was great tips! My daughter came with me and she had fun even though she wont admit it!

dsc02989.jpgAt the end of the meeting my director did a drawing for this awesome MK Luggage piece. I didnt even know I was in the drawing. My daughter got to pick the name and she picked me!!! Oh my gosh I was so excited. (My daughter is still making fun of me.) And my director gave me a ton of full size discontinued demo products she wanted to get rid of. Wow! I just felt so lucky! I also picked up my prize for sales for Dec. and it just really boosted my spirits. It was just what I needed.

Also one of my sister consultants mentioned what personally she got out of Jamboree and I just really felt was she was saying. I think it was meant for me to hear that, because I also was feeling similar to what she feels. I had high hopes to start of the new year and after being in a slump it can be hard to make a comeback. You really have to pull the strength out of yourself and just get out of your way. So tonight I realized thats just what I need to do and I am ready to ROLL!!

Positive thinking in a negative world

Not everyone is in our “pink bubble”. Wouldn’t it be great if all our friends and family just had a little bit of the pink type of thinking? Possibility thinking. Sometimes I just wish I had a magic hammer so I could whack them over the head and put some of that thinking in their brain.  Yes because while I want whats best for them, they can’t understand that, and it makes me want to literally whack them!

Im always, always amazed by people who just cant think outside the box. I mean seriously I get dumb founded when they can’t grasp the concept of possibility thinking.  Well not everyone thinks alike. As much as we’d like them to they just wont budge their mindsets. Sometimes they even think we are trying to “force” our way of thinking onto them. Thats just not true. We just see things differently and since they don’t see it our way, well they tend to make what they want out of it. I think its sad really that people would rather be stuck in their boring “secure” dead end day jobs instead of making the most out of their life THEIR way.

It doesnt bother me what others think of me or the fact that I’m a “Mary Kay Lady”, but of course it does affect me in even the smallest way. It comes back around to the 5 people you hang around most. If they are not positive people, filling your life with joy and good things then they just aren’t worth being around. This can be very hard especially if those people happen to be say- a spouse, or a parent or sibling. People you must interact with regularly. This has been the greatest challenge for me in my business and why I’m writing this post.

How do you get around letting all that negative thinking? For me I have found it best to listen to positive tapes. Anything MK oriented. I have found when I listen to that instead of the radio I feel so much better AND I feel more motivated to get my business to the next level! I have also found that distancing myself just enough from those other negative nellies really helps a lot. I can’t completly avoid them, but I have found that if I’m having a good day and that person calls me, well I just don’t answer the phone. I’ll call them back when I feel I can better shield myself from their “attacks”

It really is true that if you let negativity into your life it can pull you down. I have learned this the hard way. And I found that i ended up blaming those people for things that I could have avoided by setting boundries. It all comes down to you. Remember you have the power to create your own world whether you think so or not! You can’t control it, but you can “manuver” it to work best for you!

“The way I see it is you have two choices in life; you can be grateful for everything life has given you or you can be resentful for everything life has done to you. Your degree of happiness is directly proportional to the conviction of your choice.”

If Consistency is the key….

Then delegation is the key to consistency. Im sure many of us realize we can get more done if we just let go of some of the little things and let someone else do them. This is easier said than done however, but I personally need to get over this. I can’t afford to hire help right now, but I can have my kids become more involved until I can. I had them make my sample goodie bags and they just love doing it. I also had them pretty up the miracle sets with shred and candies for the holidays. Also getting them to do more of the chores around the house and rewarding them instead of just giving them stuff all the time, in turn spoiling them!

So today instead of trying to go out and warm chatter, because it is the last weekend before Christmas I I know on one hand there will be plenty of people to warm chatter with, I just felt like I didnt feel like being out in the crowds. I know-do what you don’t wanna do when you don’t wanna do it. But along with that I had to prioritize what I REALLY didnt want to do.And that was tackle the growing chaos that is taking over my house in the form of mail, recyclables, clothes unfolded and well u name it, its a disaster zone. I am living in constant unorganized chaos. Along with my decision the be smart working this time around, I knew I needed to make many more changes than just my attitude. I have been listening to MK cd’s nonstop all week and its so good! I suggest filling your head with it at all times and avoid the radio. Some of the tips I have learned, I realize I can’t use unless I make order from chaos. So what I really didnt want to do was tear my house apart and get it in shape to begin the run into DIQ STRONG!

I took almost 3 hours last night getting all my paperwork together. I have hostess and recruiting packets ready to go. I have my desk sort of organized. Well one step at a time. We got the entire downstairs cleaned today so I can make it presentable for classes in my home. I actually even hung pictures, which I never do because we have moved so much I just don’t bother. Now I need to get started upstairs and make a clean space for my inventory. Hmmm this makes me think I should just do a six most important list right now….

Lets begin the road to DIQ!

I’m ready to Rock’n’roll! I have decided that I am committing to a power month next month! Last night my directors hotline message was how many faces do you need to get the results your looking for? To get into DIQ you need to be in front of at least 65 minimum. Now that sounds high but break it into smaller pieces and look at having an average of 4 guests at a class and it works out to 4 classes a week. Thats achievable right? I am going for that ++ some. I have set my goal on 10, but it would be so awesome to get 15! I have lingered around MK long enough to know I want Directorship like yesterday, so now I have truly committed to the goal. So far I have two on the books, with a third tenative for next week. I feel the urgency to meet LOTS of women fast because it has taken me three weeks of “seeding” to get these results so far. And I need waaay more than what I have.

Ok so on this topic also comes the thought of consistency, and organization. Two things I absolutly suck at. I look around my house and its chaotic. I feel the need to get it all in order before I can feel like I will be able to work. But that takes time and effort I dont have right now because this goal is more important than that. I seem to be good at blogging (I spend way too much time on the pc) and I do have a laptop now, so I have a few thoughts.

#1 get out of the house! I have heard many directors say this is the only way you can get things done. So I plan on making a mobile office in my car. I will have all the things I need to do business on the spot!

#2 I plan to use this blog as a tool to keep myself organized. I just have a hard time with paper. I am a techie kind of girl and when I try to use a planner, well It doesnt work for me ok? So you’ll find here my ideas and tips on how Im working my business, and my daily 6 most important list. I keep trying to keep one but like I said-no good with paper. Online everything is in one spot and its less clutter in my house and my life. Whew! Ok feeling better already.

Now for my I Story…

The first post

Ok so now that I’ve re-entered the world of pink, I decided to change my blog over to a lighter more positive one. If you were a regular reader of my blog you’ll be suprised at the transformation. Now Im not saying its going to be easy to keep up my positive attitude daily but I am going to make every attempt to, and more importantly even if I have a bad day, I promise to shrug it off because in the end it doesnt matter. So you wont be hearing about it here, and I am shutting the other blog down. Yep thats how serious I am. Besides I have like 5 “myspace” accounts and 2 blogs and a website. I just cant keep up so its time to consolidate. Now on to the really important stuff!
