How do you see yourself? When you look in the mirror what do you see? This is NOT about being skinny so please do not misunderstand… this is about liking what you see when you look in the mirror. I’m one of those women that look in the mirror and think “what the hell happened…
On the path to our success, sometimes, we may go down a few rough roads, trip and fall in a few mud holes and maybe even come to a complete stop right in the middle of what feels like the most important times in our lives.
We’ll feel ourselves begin to stress more, focus less and the negativity will start to creep in and steal your motivation, drain your energy and, if you allow it, cause you to quit. So don’t. Do not allow the fear of failure to open the gates to negative thinking.
Keep your eyes looking forward. Keep your chin up and your feet moving even if it’s one step at a time!
This is a time for learning from these experiences, both good and bad.
You will use them to:
Better decision-making skills.
Teaches us what Not to do.
Improves upon procedures.
Develop a broader view capable of seeing the bigger picture.
Positive self-image and confidence develops as your experience replaces your fears.
Communication gaps start to close as you learn the business language, lingo & acronyms
Going through this vortex of twists and turns can be treacherous to our self-esteem, stamina and faith in our capabilities.
People that want to learn will always be learning something every day. People that choose, yes I said choose, not to learn by using words and thoughts like “I can’t” will not.
Once we make it past the first few scary steps it gets smoother. We start to learn the lingo. Start to feel more comfortable in our surroundings. Decisions are more confident, goals more realistic and the focus sharpens and narrows in on priorities to reach the goals that have been carefully laid out. These are all necessary stepping-stones that will help us to appreciate all that we accomplished to make it when we begin to see the finish line on the horizon. So cast away all doubts, stay the course and when you get there look back with pride because you never quit. Quitting is not an option!
For many years I’ve asked myself where will I be in 5 or 10 years. If you don’t think about it nobody else will do it for you and you will be as lost as a little boat floating in the ocean… just floating along. Set your goals. Set deadlines. And then do everything you…

For the Month of March – March looks to be a very challenging month on sales needed to cover current bills and pay on balances owed for items that need catching up or paying off! Tax time is not my favorite time of year. You are trying to recover from the holidays and WHAM! Here’s…
For years I’ve joked around and said “I’ll quit smoking and drinking Dr Pepper when I figure out what my next bad habit will be to replace them!” then I’d laugh and smoke another cigarette and drink my Dr Pepper. But I no longer feel “young” and I no longer enjoy the idea of doing things…
