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!

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!
