Write Your Own Story

Write your own story. I tell all the people on my different teams to focus on self growth and never stop reading, watching self improvement or motivational videos. Never let others discourage you. Make a vision board or wall. Put things on this wall or board with dates attached. Put goals that are achievable.

Decorate your work area with things that help you stay focused and motivated. Pictures, plants, verses or quotes. Play motivational videos while working or music.

Never let others disturb you psychologically. Some people start drama intentionally because your business is growing and theirs isn't. They want to throw you off your game, stall you, make you doubt yourself. They are jealous if you have an awesome personality. Some people have an aura that just draws people to them. They are infectious with their smile, happiness, or laughter.

Another point I share with my business associates is to stop worrying about others. I am a rule follower and I believe in building my business on a solid foundation. I will not compromise my morals or integrity. Some people will blatantly disregard rules, go against company policies, say things that aren't supposed to be said, because they don't feel the rules apply to them. It always everyone around them, they don't want to look in the mirror.

Why do you want to pretend to be someone or something you aren't? When people figure out your story is fake,  the sales or rank you post isn't correct, etc,  they no longer respect you and you become known as a person with no inintegrity or morals. Is it worth it?? People no longer trust you or want to work with you. Look around successful people are humble and do not have that "look at me mentality."

Be yourself. Be original, everyone else is taken. Never compromise. Karma is not kind. Keep planting good seeds. Remember success breeds success.  If your business isn't growing, it's time to take a hard look in the mirror.

Real integrity is doing the right thing, knowing that nobody's going to know whether you did it or not. --Oprah Winfrey

Have you ever sat and wondered how some people sleep at night or live with themselves? You watch the way some people treat others and you are glad you are not in their shoes for the moment karma shows up.

Integrity is always doing the right thing whether anyone is watching or not. It's about being honest and kind. How do you treat people? Would you want to be on the receiving end? Do you have an ulterior motive for the things you do?

I have worked in the corporate world and in gospel radio, as well as been an entrepreneur since 1997, and I find it much more rewarding to work silently. I will not compromise my morals or integrity for anyone. When you have the "look at me" mentality, no one cares or takes you serious.

Pay it forward today and every day. Do the right thing. Be grateful. Be humble. Be blessed.

Goals ~Do You Have Any?

Goals ~ think about that word. Everyone hopefully has goals. If you don't, you are likely just stumbling through life. Goals without a date are just dreams.

Someone who has cancer is likely struggling to get through another day.  I would bet they have a better attitude than a lot of people. They are positive and make every minute count.

Do you plan out your days? Do you have a "to-do" list or planner? How far out are you booked? Successful people plan a year out.

My point is, do you actually make a plan and work your plan? Are you working towards your goals and growing or do you just talk a good game and have people fooled? Some people are so busy posting on Facebook and in groups trying to impress people that they have no time left to work towards their goals.

When your goals are not met, who or what do you blame? It was a holiday. I had family issues. I was sick. She or he doesn't like me. My team isn't working. There is a new excuse for each new day. Look in the mirror!! Only you can fix your lack of growth.

Watch motivational videos or read self help books. Find a mentor and this person needs to challenge you and hold you accountable. If your business isn't growing, that's on you. Remember we ALL reap what we sow. Go out and plant good seeds and you will be rewarded with a bountiful harvest.

Focus. Keep planting. Keep grinding. Fix a vision boards with real goals and dates. You can do this!!!!

Snow Storm 2016

Snow Storm 2016

I have to laugh today as everyone on Facebook and other social media is in a panic over snow here in NC. I have friends from all over the US and other countries messaging me to ask just how much snow we actually have. Cracks me up. I worked for years in healthcare and we had to work no matter the weather. It has only snowed a couple of inches but it is still snowing and sleeting.

Please keep all the people that have to work tonight in your prayers. So many out salting the roads, police, EMS, fire dept, etc. Our truck drivers who have loads to deliver their loads as well as our healthcare workers who are there to help us and care for anyone in the hospital.

I am blessed to be able to work from home every day and on days like this I am especially thankful. I have worked in my office today and fixed potato soup for dinner. Love that I am able to do calls with customers and team members while cooking.

Life is what you make it. I have listened to motivation videos today and read. What did you do today to better yourself? Try to find something each and every day to be grateful for.

People often ask me how I remain so happy after some of the things I have been through. I have a deep faith which also helps me to remain rooted. I lost my dad who was my best friend in early January 2012. During his short battle with lung cancer and even during his funeral my faith never grew weak. I am a fan of the Perry's and I was reminded today of their faith as a memory came back up on my Facebook memories. 2 years ago they did not know if Tracy would survive. They got a miracle. Not only did he survive but he is traveling with them today and singing. My whole point to this is simply for you to choose if you run the day and your life or if it runs you.

Be blessed, be positive, be grateful.

Random Thoughts

Random Thoughts 

In life we meet all kinds of people. Most of us have a wide spectrum of different personalities that make up our social circle. As we get older we start realizing our circle gets smaller and smaller.

I was always a kid in elementary school who pretty much did my own thing. I was never a follower, not my thing. I still get picked on to this day about swallowing a quarter in the lunch line and scaring poor Mrs Boger half to death. Okay so I get bored easily. Some things never change lol. My whole elementary school experience was pretty much that way. Lots of friends, lots of sleep overs their home or ours. Just a great childhood.

Enter high school. So who cares where you are from or what your parents do. I sure didn't. I was friends with the popular peeps like the football players, the dancing boots and cheerleaders, on down to the carpentry class and auto mechanics peeps. It did not matter where you were from or how rich or poor you were. I have never judged and never will.

Then you graduate, go to college, or perhaps start a job and its a whole new world. There are people who will use you, walk all over you, try to make you look bad at your job so they can look good. You tget my drift. My point is it never changes. It is sort of like growing old. We were wearing diapers when we were born, and a lot of people go out of this world having to wear adult diapers or depends. Sorry I worked 30 years in the medical world.

My point to all of this is: BE YOURSELF!! Everyone else is already taken. Who cares what Jane or Tom are wearing or driving. I sure don't. I could care less if you live in a tent, a camper, a cabin, or a mansion. What impresses me is the way you treat everyone. If you are the same each and every single time I see you, odds are I will like you. If you do a kind dead and do it silently, you are my kind of person. God sees what you do whether it is good or bad. You can fool a lot of people but not Him.

So you go into business for yourself, You are an entrepreneur. You better buckle up because that is a story for a whole different post. I have owned my own business since 1997 and it has been an interesting ride. See ya soon.
