Be Saying Goodbye to the Backup Boyfriend

You remember in high school when you dated that guy?

That guy that you kind of knew was not the ideal match for you?

That guy that made you look around and think, “Well, if this doesn’t work out, no worries, I could date  _______________ (insert name of another guy)!”

Do you remember your backup boyfriend?  That OTHER guy that was your friend and that you knew you could always fall back on.  Perhaps its the same backup boyfriend that you made a pact with to marry if you were both single at thirty?

Well tonight, I am saying goodbye to a whole bunch of backup boyfriends.  There are no more backups for me.  I am taking 100% responsibility for my life.   My decisions are mine.  I run my thoughts.  I create my actions.  I can do whatever I want.  I am closing the book on a whole bunch of backups in my mind!

Goodbye to my beautiful backups:

  • My job that was ‘safe’ but not fulfilling, but had a good pension and benefits too!
  • The stuff I keep holding on to because I may “miss it”!
  • A mindset with certain family members that they will always be there if I “need them”!
  • Clothing or workout equipment that I keep around because I may wear it or use it one day!
  • People in my life that are beautiful to look at, but really don’t add any value.  People who aren’t fun nor stretching themselves.
  • Food that stuffs me down, rather than fueling me to rise up.
  • Trying to swim close to shore because “you never know”.
  • Any backups that you could add as you let this land on you?

I can no longer doubt my abilities relying on the backups to help me move forward.   I need to believe 100% in myself, letting go of the backup mindset!

Doubt and belief cannot live in the same space that I am creating.

Growing.

Without backup.

With excitement.

With gratitude.

For all that I am and all that I can do.

Being enough.

Being me!

Be Networking 

WARNING: It has become very clear, I may need to put a caveat at the top of this post, but I am not going to because I truly feel I don’t need one.  

You be the judge…

Three weeks ago, I didn’t know that network marketing was a dirty word for some people.  

A trigger. 

Words that make you turn and run. 

A type of business that makes people start to ignore you. 

My family and friends are very supportive of me and my goal to help others succeed in life, but many people aren’t a fan of the type of company I am choosing to partner with. 

Growing up, I didn’t know anyone involved in network marketing.  I became exposed to it in University through my husband’s volleyball coach and Sexy Neck’s aunt and uncle but I didn’t really hear or know much about it!  

I NEVER had a negative experience.  

I NEVER had anyone harass me. 

When I started my business five months after starting to use the products and the day after my mom’s birthday, I felt privileged to serve and help people with a product I loved.  I knew the product would sell itself.   

My goals were simple with my new adventure: 

Invest in myself. 

Be vulnerable and share my journey. 

Share tools that the company provides.  

Create a connection between one of the many experts on my team. 

 See if this incredible solution based company that helps people have more energy, perform at a higher level, age well, lose weight or create wealth was for each UNIQUE human ‘being’ that crossed my path.  

The VERY best thing about this company is that I got to stick in my heart because the company does all the ‘head’ stuff. 

Connecting with people. 

Listening to goals.  

Walking with my ‘network’.  

Letting the company do the ‘business stuff’. 

Building websites for each associate.  

Providing research. 

Creating movies and podcasts.  

Educating myself and anyone who wants to be. 

I have the great privilege to CHOOSE who I work with every day.  And, if someone chooses to buy a product, I get a referral payment added onto a prepaid Visa.  Then, drum roll please, if that person refers someone, we both get a referral payment.  

It is an incredible gift to be able to watch people reach their personal goals with this amazing company.  

I am overwhelmed with gratitude for this opportunity. 

Network marketing is a tool to support  myself and others, not harass.  

Working on myself. 

Helping others.  

Working with incredible people on my ever growing team. 

Serving not selling.  

Creating freedom income through products I love.
