Okay, so I just have to start February off by saying one thing – “Stop Being So Negative!!!”
I have the kind of personality where I am 99% positive all the time (the other 1% is me complaining about Michigan weather). I feel like negativity just brings people down and makes a bad situation worse. There are not a whole lot of positive people in this world, and it’s really frustrating. Sometimes I feel like I’m in a world all my own. Is anyone out here with me???
Here’s the thing… I am a busy entrepreneur, mom, wife, daughter, sister, and friend. I juggle my own business, my teenage boys, my widowed mother, a house, normal human responsibilities, and I find time to exercise, read, and learn new things. BUT…I know some people who think I’m crazy. Why? Because I like to better myself? Because I want to be successful? Because I want to make some kind of change in the world, even if it is small?
Am I perfect? Hell no! I just don’t believe in people sitting around waiting for good things to happen to them. You have to go out and make it happen, people! You have to work hard, put your time in, put some effort into your passions, create a life you want by doing what you want, and hopefully, good things will happen!
Since my audience is entrepreneurs, I wanted to share this with you! I want to tell you that you have to go after what you want. You have to push hard and learn new things and put yourself out there. One of my fears is talking face-to-face with people (which is why I love being a Virtual Assistant). I get severe anxiety over meeting new people. But, when I’m behind my desk I don’t mind having phone calls with new people. And I must be good at it because 90% of new calls turn into new clients.
My point here: I stay positive and push through. I remain professional and contain my anxiety and move forward. I hope to have my own physical building one day. I also want to have other professionals around me, where we’re all working together to make a difference in our community, doing what we love. That’s my goal within the next couple years. How do I plan to get there? By continuing to build my business and by staying positive!!!
Can you share your positive stories, your successes, or your dreams in the comments below? I’d love to hear how you’ve built your business and reached your goals!!! And I bet you stayed positive the whole way!!!
