SO.....keep this on the DL, but I did this thing....True CONFESSION TIME😮
Nope, I'm not talking about our team being a LV Team...the thing I need to confess to you about is something I did a little over 3 years ago.
You ready for it.....I BELIEVED! 😱
Crazy, I know, right?! I stepped out in faith, outside my comfort zone and I believed that I could! I believed that God does want good...no, GREAT things for me and for my family, and I believed that the One Thing that I DID NOT WANT TO DO, was the exact thing that God was going to use to bless us and allow us to bless others through it!
When this one opportunity fell into my lap 6 years before I said yes, I put my hand up and adamantly said "NO! No thank you!" (honestly, I probably wasn't even that polite about it! I'm pretty sure I rolled my eyes 🙄) I truly did not want anything to do with Direct Sales/Marketing. I'd seen 'em all (so I thought) and they are all the same, yada, yada, yada.
It was so easy to say, 'No, I do not have time for that!"
I am a busy, working mom of three, I have a child with a disability, I am too old to start something new, I don't have money to invest in my future, I am not passionate about selling anything, I am not a sales person, everyone sells it.... all of those "reasons" were a great cover for me not to recognize and address my true reason for saying no. To be totally transparent with you, the reason I shut it down was FEAR. I was afraid that if I did try, I'd fail. I was afraid of what people would think of me. I was afraid that it would be one more thing that I could add to my list of things that I'm not good at.
I could have believed those lies, but the "WHAT IF" that God placed in my heart was stronger!
So to those of you who thinking "that could never be me" guess what....Those were my thoughts for years. Until I Tried! When you give way to even the tiniest bit of belief and faith and just do what you need to do, amazing things CAN HAPPEN!
As I reflect and look back over the last 3 years, I would have missed out on so much on top of the #TimeFreedom
this one Yes has given us!
