The Power of Growing YOU!

Ok, so is it just me that does this from time to time?  You look at all the things and people around you, and want to change everything and everyone else to make life better, easier, more enjoyable, less frustrating, more peaceful, more fun?  Like, “If only my child would stop whining in the morning, I’d feel better and have a much more enjoyable morning.”  or “If only the weather was nicer, I’d be in a better mood.” or “If only I could change this person or fix their attitude, maybe life would be hunky dory.” etc.   I don’t think it’s just me that struggles with wanting to change things that are out of my control occasionally, because I know King David in the Bible struggled with the same thing and had to remind himself not to focus on things he couldn’t control.  In Ps. 131, he wrote:

“I do not concern myself with great matters or things too wonderful for me.  But I have calmed and quieted myself. . . . put your hope in the Lord both now and forevermore.”

I read this in my devotional today and it was a great reminder of where our energy and attention should be placed — working on and changing ourselves.  Amazingly, things change when we change.

“‘When I was young, I set out to change the world. When I grew a little older, I perceived that this was too ambitious, so I set out to change my state. This too, I realized as I grew older, was too ambitious, so I set out to change my town. When I realized I could not even do this, I tried to change my family. Now as an old man, I know that I should have started by changing myself. If I had started with myself, maybe then I would have succeeded in changing my family, the town, or even the state — and who knows, maybe even the world.’” — From a Hassidic Rabbi (Quote from my devotional — Emotionally Healthy Spirituality Day by Day

What are you doing to work on YOU today? You will be amazed how changing YOU changes sooooo much around you! Want your situation to change, relationships to be stronger, body and mind to be healthier? GROW YOU! It’s not easy. It can be darn right HARD! But the HARD is oh so worth it!  It takes faithful day in and day out work — even when you don’t feel like it.  Sometimes your efforts will seem insignificant, like what you did didn’t even matter, but take heart.  The compounding effect works over time to gradually transform you into a better version of you.

What are you doing to grow YOU today?!?  Need a personal growth plan?  Need accountability?  Need encouragement?  Share your personal growth goals with me.  I would be honored to walk this journey with you!

1.) Don’t forget to promote your Memorial Day weekend sale on your private customer FB groups, via email, text, private FB message & phone call!

SCRIPT for CALLING about the sale!

Hey Susan! I am so excited! I am having a memorial day sale going on throughout the weekend until Wednesday at noon!!! I have been challenged by my Sales Director to have 20 orders this weekend! We have huge team goal that we are working on right now and I have my personal goal to finish by June 30th! Do you have a quick second so i can share with you the details of the specials?

Yes: Okay great, So with your order this weekend you get 10% off you order if under $50! If your order is $50-100 you will receive 15% off and if you order is over $100 then you will get 20% off! PLUS once I reach my goal one lucky lady will get her order HALF OFF! Is there anything you have been wanting to try or anything you are almost out of or may need in the next month or 2 that you would like to get at a discount to help me with my goals this weekend?


2.) Why not do a phone-a-thon, & set a goal for how many orders you want today or by May 31st in order to be on-target for the Star & the Cadillac Club ring (650 cumulative wholesale), or earn your embracelet (600 cumulative wholesale)!!!!!! You couldvrun a special on orders placed between now and May 31st – everyone gets 10% off – set a goal of 10, 15, 20 orders of any size and once you hit your goal by May 31st, you could give one person their order for 50% off!!!! (Not just charcoal mask orders, but any product order.)

3.) Need more faces for the 40 faces challenge?!? Bring your MK with you to family get-togethers! Do facials & practice your Mk presentation with people you see today! Get referrals and share Father’s Day gift ideas! Soooo many opportunities! Think outside the box!

4.) Contact all your birthday customers and offer 15% their entire order, 30% off if they schedule a birthday facial, & 50% off their entire order if they share their birthday facial with 3 friends!!!! (That costs you NOTHING and gets you in front of more people!)
