Do it for YOU
“What others think about you is none of your business.”
What others have to say about you is just a reflection of their own insecurities. Pay more attention to what it says about them rather than what it says about you.
If you struggle with "How will I get over the fear of what they will think?" syndrome. I struggled with it too, but once I made a choice to move past that.. everything changed.
This is how.....
"What will they think if they find out im selling shampoo now?"
Those were my thoughts on the last couple of days of August when I decided to join this opportunity. Little did I know that in less than 100 days my life would make 360 degree change and I would now be talking to you about how to get over what others think about you.
When I first joined I did it for some extra income while staying home studying for my boards aka NCLEX ( which I just passed BTW) I am officially a nurse! All the years of hard work paid off! Although I wont be working it feels good to have my degree!
Ok back to topic.. When I first joined I did it for some extra income and now I do it to change the lives of other girls just like me who have the power of doing so much more than they could have ever imagined and they don't even know it yet.
So heres how I went from caring about what other people think, to living life on my terms, and why i'm much happier now that I could care less what they say.
First, there will always be someone who has something to say. Whether you're selling shampoo or you're a nurse, people will always have an opinion. You will never be able to please everyone.
Opinions about nurses: "How can you deal with all the sadness and sick people all day, you don't even make that much money, is it worth it?" (I got this one alot!)
Opinions about me selling shampoo: "Why is she selling shampoo if she just graduated nursing school? Is she even making money? SHAMPOO?! Out of all things SHAMPOO?! (People still don't understand shampoo is the coverup name for so much more happening behind the scenes) ;)
Once I realized you could be the most successful and influential person in the world and in turn the amounts of people who would have an opinion of you would INCREASE, instead of DECREASE, I quickly changed my mindset and discovered that as long as I know why i'm doing it, it doesn't matter what they think. I know my end goal and they dont.
"At first they'll ask you why you're doing it, later they'll ask you why you did it."
This really hit me like a glass of cold water in the face when I started looking up some of the richest & most successful people. I would scroll through the comments and 75% of it was haters. Why? Because people love negativity! They rather pick out any little thing in someone who is successful in hopes that they will feel better about all the reasons why they are not courageous enough to go after their dreams.
At this point I had TWO options.
pay attention to what others might think and waste time watching other girls be successful with this business (or any other business), wondering if that could also be me. I could WATCH them from the sidelines as they live out my dream life because I .... was scared and I cared too much about OTHER people who give me absolutely NOTHING....
Accept that a couple of opinions were going to be launched my way ( and will continue to be launched my way) some harder than others, but in turn they are all meaningless and have no effect on the turnout of my life.. and they are opinions that were going to happen regardless of what I chose to do with my life.
Needless to say I picked the latter and never looked back.
Your life is a sum of all your actions & reactions and you are not a victim of your life circumstances. Its easy to blame life for the limitations we set ourselves. Its not easy to realize we are the ones in control and we are solely responsible for our end result. We all have been through hardships we cannot change, some of us more than others, but at the end of the day you cant change whats going to happen to you. You only have the power to control yourself, your actions, and choose how you react to what happened. You can let it make you or you can let it break you."
You cant change how people treat you, or what they say about you. All you can do is change how you react to it."
Whenever I see a couple of opinions here and there I just sit back and laugh because I know my reality.. and if they knew my reality.. they would have something different to say.
“Learn to use the criticism as fuel and you will never run out of energy.”
I was watching an interview about one of the most influential and successful comedians and how the person he looked up to the most said to him " pick another career because comedy isn't it." He talks about what would have happened if he would've of listened to that person and dropped his dreams of being a comedian because of one negative comment. He would have never built the empire he now has and would have regretted it his whole life. One small choice to keep going when he was discouraged changed his whole life.
This happens very often and almost every success story starts this way.. "they told me i couldn't do it but I kept going and I did it anyways." That goes to show you that if you really want something in life you will make it happen. You wont let the limitations others set for you determine how far you can go.
Many girls in this business (like me) were worried about what others might say & think because other people who haven't seen the success first hand don't understand how a bottle of shampoo changed my life in 3 months. They don't understand how a bottle of shampoo is giving out free cars like its candy (i'm picking up mine soon). They don't understand how a bottle of shampoo is paying out millions of dollars a year, free vacations (yes free and I have 3 coming up) how its sky rocketing in numbers in just their FOURTH year on the market.... and all from the comfort of our phones which really means wherever we want our "office" to be that day.
Its okay if they don't understand now, eventually the opportunity will be presented to them by someone they trust and that same person who didn't understand back then will be wishing they started sooner.
I completely understand why we care about the opinions of others specially those close to us.
Always remember you have two options.
Keep caring and keep worrying and make $0.00 while you watch others be successful without you..
decide to ignore what people think and accept they would be saying it about any business opportunity you took on.
Just by doing that.. you can potentially change your whole life with just ONE choice.
When I decided to start looking at life through my own eyes and not through the eyes of others I was provided alot more that the path to financial freedom. It has also given me so much personal development that if 3 months ago you told me this would be my life now I would have laughed. I was the most close minded and negative person who also saw others making so much money and I would wonder "how?!" and I would just say "they're just lucky." Little did I know that we make our own luck and its no luck at all. Adjusting your mindset is actually one of the biggest keys to success and being able to do that with this company has opened doors for me I thought were locked forever.
