I signed up in my business with one foot in and one foot out. I hadn’t fully committed. I was holding myself back due to what others thought and if I’m being honest, the negative comments that were being whispered in my ear. 🙄
𝐓𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐢𝐬 𝐚 𝐛𝐚𝐝 𝐝𝐞𝐜𝐢𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧.
𝐘𝐨𝐮’𝐥𝐥 𝐫𝐞𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐭 𝐢𝐭.
𝐘𝐨𝐮’𝐥𝐥 𝐥𝐨𝐬𝐞 𝐚𝐥𝐥 𝐜𝐫𝐞𝐝𝐢𝐛𝐢𝐥𝐢𝐭𝐲.
I let those words effect me and for months I sat on this opportunity. 😩
I realized that I was indeed scared. So I waited. And I talked. And I waited. And I prayed. And I talked.
Months went by as I went through all the scenarios. The pros and cons. The various outcomes. The possibility of failure. The possibility of waisting $300 bucks. 𝙨𝙚𝙧𝙞𝙤𝙪𝙨𝙡𝙮 𝙜𝙚𝙩 𝙖 𝙜𝙧𝙞𝙥. 🤦🏼♀️ It was like I was prepping for the biggest decision of my entire life. If only I could go back and whisper in my own ear, 𝙜𝙚𝙩. 𝙞𝙩. 𝙩𝙤𝙜𝙚𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙧. 𝙬𝙤𝙢𝙖𝙣.
It was just shampoo and an opportunity to try something. That’s it.
The only thing I was truly risking was my pride and the possibility of failure.
If I hadn’t made that rash decision one night to just say screw it (pardon my language) and hit that button, my life wouldn’t be where it is today and THAT blows my mind.
The day I changed my mindset and made a commitment, my business took off. I told myself I would work has hard as I could and make temporary sacrifices for long term reward. I wanted to be able to tell myself a year into this business that I had done everything I possibly could to become successful.
Why do I share this? Because if you want to be successful at anything in life (marriage, friendship, business) you have to make a commitment.
- Everyone gets training, but not everyone takes action.
- Everyone gets knocked down, but not everyone gets back up.
- Everyone gets burned out/exhausted, but not everyone refuels.
- Everyone desires to quit, but not everyone does.
- Everyone gets a chance, but not everyone takes it.
- Everyone gets today, but not everyone maximizes it.
Don’t be like everyone.
𝐂𝐨𝐦𝐦𝐢𝐭 and you will succeed.
Moral of the story? Sometimes you just need to stop over thinking all of the things in your head and just go. for. it. You won’t see everything right away. All you have to do is close your eyes and jump all in.
