2016 was actually a PHENOMENAL year for me as an individual as well as for my business, I mean i started my year with an EPIC trip to Conference in February and then I cam back to promote to Diamond in March with a $20,000 GOOD BONUS and then moving into May i gave birth to our first daughter! Those few months were so full even if the rest of the year was a flop it would have still been great but honestly great things have been happening all year long!! Now that the year is coming to an end im excited because I know I can improve and grow even more and I am excited about that! but before the year ends I wanted to share with you what I have learned just in case this is what you need to hear going into the new year.
1. You can only do what you CAN do!
In 2016 I noticed that I would be a bit hard on myself when I didn't reach a particular milestone or meet a goal. I felt that I had done something wrong or maybe I didn't do enough. I felt like I was a poor leader and didn't have what it took to succeed BUT the thing is I wasn't looking with the RIGHT perspective. When I think about where I am now in comparison to where I was a year ago the growth is indescribable! Which leads me to my next point…
2.Even when it looks like you aren't winning, you may have already won several battles even if the war is still on....
When we think of success and failure we think in black and white terms and the world is anything BUT simply black and white, there are many many shades of gray. Even tho I didn't reach all my goals I am still doing better and I still had many successes. In terms of ItWorks I am pushing to promote to the top rank of the business so that means I have a few levels to go thru on the way to the top and even tho I haven't won the war I have won several small battles and that is excellent. But if I refuse to see the gray areas I may become so upset that I just quit because s doesn't look like a straight arrow
3.You can't rush what you aren't ready for....
When you WANT something you have to be patient and allow things to come to fruition in Gods time because he has a master plan and we must go thru all of the mountains and the valleys in order to make it to where you truly want to be. The time will pass no matter what so you might as well hustle for what you want!!
4.Starting a new year without a plan is a FAIL!
2017 is HERE I mean we have a little over a week until Christmas and then a few days left before this year is GONE forever a thing of the past! So this year I did more than ever before to plan for the upcoming year and how I truly plan to ROCK out beginning with a 90day push to launch me into a 6figure spot!
5. Hard work beats all talent… even your own….
Another lesson learned is that even tho you may be skilled at something, if you don't work hard for what you want, you can lose it. Sometimes the most talented person is the one riding the bench because their belief system isn't strong enough! They don't see themselves as WINNERS so therefore they haven't got the desire to even PUSH for what they THOUGHT they wanted which turns out…. They really couldn't have wanted it that bad to begin with…..
