Another Happy Hump Day!
I’m sure all of you have heard the phrase “When the going gets tough, the tough get going!”.
This is true in every aspect of our lives, but I think even more so in our home based Avon business. When sales and recruting are down I see so many people who either give up totally or suddenly find so many other things they need to be doing.
But the truth is, you may be just about to make it work when you give up. Maybe it’s time to do some serious thinking about your attitude or as Zig Ziglar was fond of saying, “You need a check up from the neck up”.
I have been forced to do my own checkup recently. I found I was agonizing over a crucial problem in my Unit for the last few days. My thoughts were seldom anywhere else and I must admit to you that they were NOT very positive thoughts. But, all of a sudden this morning, a solution struck me. (At least I think it will work). The situation seemed pretty hopeless but I refused to give up. I realized that my “stinkin thinkin” was at work and I needed to look at the problem with a positive optimistic attitude and it worked!!!
Please don’t misunderstand, I stil have some even more major issues that have to be addressed, but I feel sure that if I face each one with the right attitude, I will find a solution.
So maybe it’s time for your check-up! Are you doing everything you can do to make your dreams come true? Are you facing each day with a plan and working that plan using all your time? Do you actually put in the hours that you need, or do you find a zillion little personal things that need to be done. If you had to go work every day, you would work 6-8 hours and never think a thing about it. Are you putting in a day’s work on your business and your dreams? Answer these questions for yourself and put on a smile and go out and grab your day!
So on this wonderful “Hump Day”, I wish you a positively happy productive day!
