Don’t be afraid to start exactly where you are as you are. Being a yes, usually brings some element of fear, or the feeling of ‘I have no clue what I am doing.’ No matter where you are in a business you will feel this, it never goes away!
When I started with dōTERRA, I knew nothing about MLM companies, in fact I thought they were scammy, but something inside of me knew I was a yes because I needed to be a part of a team-something bigger than me….that this was a challenge I wanted to take on-with no prior experience, with knowing nothing, starting at square one with NO existing business and NO clientele, plus I knew I didn’t want to sell to my family. Did I mention I had just had a baby 6 months before I decided to take this all on? Looking at all of those barriers and hurdles, many people thought ‘what is she thinking?’ ‘She must be crazy.’ But I knew I was a yes. I wasn’t afraid to just show up as I was with nothing. I was afraid I would fail, but I knew I needed to do this for me, and that made failure not an option.
When I became a mom I was determined to not loose my drive for my dreams, I knew to be the best mom I could be, i had to dedicate myself to accomplishing my dreams otherwise I would resent being a mother and not be emotionally present. I knew I wanted to be a successful entrepreneur. I knew that since I was a kid. That big WHY pushed me beyond my fear and beyond staying safe.
And now Silver Status in dōTERRA and a multichannel business making me well over my salary I have accomplished my goals and more. I have been able to surpass what I thought was possible. But, even now, after seeing what I and my business is made of, when it comes to a big step, a new program, investing back in my business or something else, I still feel an element of fear when jumping, but I am not afraid to say yes, and show up as I am.
If you feel it in your heart, you are ready. Do what is scary, jump in, start something you know nothing about, invest in your growth in pursuit of your WHY. You’ll be challenged, you’ll be scared, but it will be worth it, the journey and the destination ✨☀️🌸
