What would you do if you read the words: Welcome to your next promotion. Here you will make a minimum of $20,000 a month and you will never have to work another day in your life?
Well I will tell you what I would do, because that is basically exactly what I read a few days ago. Unfortunately it wasn’t directed at me, but it was directed at someone on my team. It really made me sit up and pay attention.
As a consultant for a network marketing company I have basically looked at as a side gig I haven’t vested a whole lot of time or effort into because, well, it is just a side hustle.
I got into the company because I loved their nutrition line. Arbonne has a 30 days to healthy living program that I heard about at an event. It took me some time and lots of research to decide to do the program, but once I did I was hooked. I knew that I had to share the products with others, so I signed on. Only then did I discover all the other amazing products they have.
As a licensed massage therapist and an esthetician working full time in a spa, I don’t have a lot of time for doing events and marketing a business. So I just share when I can, believing in the products help and I’ve been happy with the little extra money I made while helping people get healthy and find good products to use in their daily lives.
But the more I looked into everything Arbonne offers the people who share their products, the more interested I became in spending time promoting my now fully functioning side business.
And then I read those words. Our regional manager is in qualification for the next level up. NATION. That means that she will be the top leader of our group. CEO as known in the regular work force world. When you think of a CEO, you normally think of someone who spends hours working in an office, sacrificing time with friends and family. Usually having all kinds of health issues because of all the stress their dealing with.
This company, I have discovered, is different. Not that you don’t have to work at the Nation level but it is more about making sure everyone on your team is as successful as you are. So is that considered work or is that considered leading a team to success?
I say the latter.
And when I read those words, YOU’LL NEVER HAVE TO WORK ANOTHER DAY IN YOUR LIFE, and I thought about what being at the top of our team really meant, it motivated me in ways nothing else had.
I am not a materialistic person. I don’t go out and buy the latest trends, I can’t tell you the last time I was at the mall. Flea markets, yards sales and thrift stores are my favorite places to shop.
But Time…. that is something I value.
I am an adventurer. I love to go, see, explore. Traveling is my favorite thing in the world and my dream has always been to get to a place where I no longer had to go to a building to work everyday.
So naturally when I read those words that were meant for someone else, it made me want to hear those words directed at me. We all have dreams. Some of us just haven’t been motivated enough yet to get our butts into gear and do what is required to make those dreams a reality.
I have everything I need to set myself up to live the life I dream of. The one thing that has been lacking is motivation.
Now, finally, I have a motivator. Here is your $$$$$ for helping other people be successful while you take vacations on us, get monthly bonuses and never have to report to work again.
What would you need to hear/read to motivate you? What is stopping you from putting in the work required to have the life you dream of? Do you even know yet what that life is?
This weeks challenge: Sit down and start thinking about what you really want out of life, whether it’s now or ten years from now. Once you have figured that out, think about what it’s going to take to get you there. If you don’t see yourself getting there in your current job, maybe it’s time to look for another job. If your in a relationship that is stopping you from living your best life…yep, it’s time to step out of that too. No one or no thing should ever stand in the way of YOU having the life YOU want and deserve.
It really is a decision you must make to choose on your own. Everyone needs motivation.
Freedom to do what I want, when I want. is my motivation.
