Choice or Luck? Determining Your Direct Selling Success

One of my May card class cards - quick and easy!
I hope all the Mom's had a wonderful day on Sunday!  Here in Washington the sunny weather made our day extra special.  I finished getting the deck ready and we celebrated the opening day of "Deck Season" on Mother's Day with a special brunch in honor of my 82 year old Mother-in-law.  I've been enjoying my "stay-cation" and will be back to a regular work week on Monday. 

Business Bits:
There have been many questions regarding the new Idea Book program that was announced back in January (seems like a long time ago) and another update given last week in the Company Updates.  Here is a link to the information video that may help clear up some of the questions.  We can pre-order beginning June 14th so mark your calendars so you don't forget.

New Idea Book Information Video:

Here is a great article for all the new consultants or anyone who want to "step-up" their business.  Food for thought.... 

Every day you make choices. Some big – some small – some are easy and some are hard. Some are scary and some are fun. You can say “yes” or “no” to every opportunity that is presented. The choice is yours.
The choices that you make on a daily basis affect the outcome of your successes in your direct selling business and your life. Your choices can also affect your attitude which sometimes affects other choices you make.
Have you ever thought about how many choices you make every single day?
Life is all about choices and in your CTMH business, because you are your own boss, you choose if, when and how many hours you invest.
You can choose to make recruiting, booking and customer care calls, update your blog, post on social media sites or you can choose to watch TV, go shopping or do nothing. You can choose to hold 1 gathering/workshop or 12 every month. You can choose to attend a Team or Corporate event or you can choose to miss it and wonder why your business isn’t where you want it to be. You can choose to set expectations, create strategies to achieve them, dream dreams, and make it happen. Or you can choose to sit back and watch others achieve their expectations, live their dreams and make the choices that create the life they want to live and say, “Wow they are lucky!”
I agree with Thomas Jefferson when he said, “I’m a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it.” I believe that you make your own luck by the choices that you make and the time you are willing to invest to achieve your expectations.
When you need to make a choice, ask yourself the following questions:
  • What’s the worst thing that can happen if I do this?
  • What’s the best thing that can happen if I do this?
  • Am I willing to invest the time to make this the best decision for me?
  • Will this move me forward so that I will achieve my expectations?
These questions can help you decide if what you want to do will be worth the outcome or if you should find another way.
Some people choose not to choose. But that really is a choice too. It’s the same as saying, “No”.
Some people let others choose for them. The reality is they made the initial decision to let their choices be made for them.
Having the direct selling business success that you desire is like a sporting event. You can choose to sit in the bleachers and watch others play the game and say, “Wow they are lucky.” Or you can choose to actively participate, play the game full out and make your own luck. It is your choice.
