I also set my goals in increments of 1 year and then I break in down to 90, then 60, 30 days and then I break it down to weeks. By my doing that I have doable weekly goals and which leads to the end result of my goals. I also have a support team which I check in with on a weekly basis. Then I am accountable for my results.

Where does the changes begin? in Miscellaneous

3 months ago

Thank you, Lesil,

Very well said. Change doesn't happen over night. It comes from small steps at a time, which leads to great results. Never give up, never ever give up. The change comes within. Believe in yourself, you can do it. I believe everyone who applies themselves and believes in themselves can do it. You can do it, I know you can. So follow Lesil and others who work the business.

Take steps forward in your 'SFI' business. in Team Building

4 months ago

Very well said. By taking little steps to go farther out of your comfort do you actually grow. Then the bottom of your comfort zone also rises.

What it will take to get out and to stay up out of the comfort zone? It will take courage. Because you are in a whole new territory. Not being without fear, but stepping into it.

I sure helps to have strong support people around you who can see you up there. It can come from friends, family or even your team and up-line.

You get to see why it's worth it to you, and why and how you or I am served by working through that discomfort.

Having the best thing for that is a strong sense of purpose.

When I am clear-eyed about the results of this business, then I have a strong position to come from. Then you will be able to turn things around...

Achieving Excellence Through Perfection. in Inspiration/Testimonials #Leadership #Sponsor #Team Building

4 months ago

Thank you Agwu,

I would also add that look at the successful people methods not at their results. It 's the method that is getting the result. Then put the methods that work for you into your own business. As you stated it takes work, some times lots of work. Who cares, only you care when you see what you are achieving.

There is free advertising site out there. It really takes about 90 days to build a list and get the results that you want. It's a slow build.

I agree with Steven H. I am a woman and I have had my own business for over 25 years and have had a wonderful time building equally from men and women. If you look for the wrong or prejudice you will find it no matter where you look. If me with me is working then everything works.

Fabian E, it has also been my experience phone calls are more effective, especially when I am looking for volunteers for some other activity. Have you tried the chat or the newer icebreaker.

Success is by choice, not by chance! in Team Building #CSA #PSA #Team Building

11 months ago

Very well said Ibe. I have had this brought home to me many times. We are always at choice. When making a decision that is not on course with where we want to go. There is always course corrections. Then I ask myself what did I learn from this. For it is another lesson learned. I teach this to my clients in another business.

"Have to do" vs "Want to do" in Miscellaneous #Getting Started

about 1 year ago

I also interchange "I get to" instead of I have to.

I get to change.
I get to advertise.
I get to learn and to help my people.
I get to gather all the VP to advance and grow.

I find when I say "I have to" I get to change my language and I learn something new about myself that I had not seen before. I love to see like minded people.

When submitting a ticket, hope I can help you'll. :) in Sales #Marketing #Sales #TripleClicks

Thank you Pamela, for the reminder. I have done so. It is my desire to get the results that I need and then move forward. In original support query I may have missed some small little piece of information that needed added. Never ever give up. There is a solution. For me, I find that not giving up I get a solution. It's the small steps taken over time that get the results that I need and I have great results.
