are you a boat tied to the dock?

Standard

Today I was listening to one of my Jr Partners. He commented that he wished he was as confident as me when it came to talking to strangers where ever we were. I told him that he should just smile and say hello. If the person was rude who the hell cares as he wasn’t likely to see them again. He then said that in his past, he had an experience that really upset him. “Everyone has had a bad experience somewhere in their past” I said and that he needs to release many of the hurts of his past. Then I asked Could you imagine if you were in a boat tied to the dock, how far do you think you could go? Just like the rope stopping the boat, one’s fears hold them back… just cut the ropes. Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway (Susan Jeffers). Life isn’t going to end, but a person courageous enough to start just needs to keep taking the next step.

My World

Today was a very exciting day! It was the first day of Conference here in Miami in the American Airlines Arena… Home to the Miami Heat! Amazing people from all over the US, Canada, Mexico, Spain, UK, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, New Zealand and Australia. The talked about Motives Cosmetics, Isotonix, Conquer Entertainment, New Products and Tools. We got to see Loren Ridinger, La La Anthony, the Motives Mavens, Carmelo Anthony, Fat Joe, and Jamie Foxx. AND to make the day over the top were the Wonderful Friends who I’ve met because of this company in my home town!

Helping others

Standard

Within the past 10 years I’ve been working to better myself and help anyone who asks me. I’ve gotten up in the middle of the night to talk to someone who was upset, left work because a friend didn’t know how to change a tire or truly listened to someone who called or texted me disgustingly early in the morning. (I’m a very light sleeper). Zig Zigler said:

You will get everything you want, if you help enough people get what they want.

This is never my intention for doing anything though I do fully appreciate that statement. I help others because I want to and in the long run I benefit from it. When I volunteered at American Red Cross I decided to become an instructor, I didn’t “get paid” monetarily for teaching a class; however, I get to learn the skills of public speaking, the great feeling of knowing that I positively affected people’s lives, and gain the confidence to talk in front of a crowd, I also meet interesting people, have fun experiences and inspiring memories. I got to help them but I believe I got paid SO MUCH more for my actions! I have to truly agree

You will get everything you want, if you help enough people get what they want.
