Have you ever asked yourself what if today something happens in my life where I can no longer work? Can I live on a lot less money per month, how long will my savings last, will I be able to afford health insurance. What will my life be like?
If you answered NO to those questions you are with the majority of people. We all are guility of believing that bad things happen to other people not us. Really who leaves the security of our home expecting something bad to happen?
Well I never really gave it much thought either. I am here to tell you that I am one of the unfortunate ones that found out the hard way how quickly life can change. You see back in August 2012 life was good. Great marriage, my children were grown, had grandchildren that we adore. It was not a perfect world, my husband was disabled, due to health problems but we still had a life to be grateful for. I had a great job as a home health RN that I truly enjoyed. I was able to care for and educate a lot of patients and their families and aide in improving their quality of life. I made good money and we were really enjoying life.
Then comes that unforgettable Wednesday. I had finished up early that day so we decided to I distinctly remember sitting at the computer one day, stressing because all my income was gone, and what income we did have was making life stressful trying to meet all the obligations we had. Yes we were better off than a lot of people because we did have my husbands income from disability, but imagine 70% of your families income disappearing in a flash. I made a decision that day to really do some research and see if people actually were able to make money with Network Marketing. What I found was amazing, not just a few people, but thousands of ordinary everyday individuals changing their lives through Network Marketing. That was the day I made the decision to take my business serious and to treat it like a true business. This was my new vehicle to help someone else, just like in nursing, I loved to help people with their physical health, now it was a little different, I wanted to help possibly make a positive impact on peoples financial health.
I am here to tell you that my journey has not been all roses. There have been great days and days when I wanted to throw in the towel. But you see I am not a quitter. I look at this on those bad days and remember what my dad always told me, “If it was impossible to be done no one would have done it, therefore there is no reason why you can not do it.” Never give up and you will see you can accomplish anything anyone else has been able to accomplish.
Well like everything, whether you are a nurse, a secretary, a doctor, lawyer, accountant, real estate agent etc. You did not go into your chosen profession being the best at it. You invested in yourself to get better, whether it was schooling, reading, mentoring, you received guidance to help you achieve the level you currently have in your chosen field. Why do people feel that it is any different with owning your own Network Marketing business? After all the research I was able to determine the things I needed to do in order to be successful in Network Marketing. In all honesty I am not yet where I want to be, but I can honestly say that after investing in myself and my education, and constantly learning, and working on mindset, I now do not have a doubt that I will achieve all my goals, and hopefully really be able to impact and help others.
MY WISH FOR YOU
I sincerely hope that from my story you take action and quit treating your Network Marketing business like a hobby and treat it like the true business it actually is. I really hope that you never have a need for a plan B. But none of us even know what can happen in the next minute, much less tomorrow. Make the decision today to treat your business like a true business and create the life of your dreams, and insure your families financial future. It doesn’t have to be that scary. Simply committing to a plan of action and sticking to it every day is a great start.
If I can help you in any way, please feel free to contact me at anytime. As I have said in my story, I love helping people.
