I've been listening to these 8 minute calls by Bob Ferngren, nice short little pre recorded call in power packed with motivation. Yesterday's call was 'getting uncomfortable'. I 'signed' up with Advocare to get a discount, I figured I was plunking down some cash for my challenge and a few other things, I may as well sign up as distributor and get the 20%, right?
Then the reality of furlough came. And it was dark and scary. I decided well...since I'm here I might as well share this product that has changed my life with a few people and hey, if I make some money cool too. But where do you start? I am not a pushy person, I don't like 'selling' things to people. I don't want to lose all my friends, and I don't want to be that girl everyone runs away from. But, I had to try. Bob said if what you are doing is making you uncomfortable...KEEP DOING IT! wait, what? Isn't that the opposite of what I'm always thinking. Why would I want to do something that makes me uncomfortable. That's crazy talk. The more I thought about it the more I decided, I need to step out of my comfort zone. I need to call people and ask for help, I need to start talking about my story, to people. in person. Now, that is some scary stuff. If I'm going to go anywhere and change lives with this stuff I need to get out and get uncomfortable.
So, I did. I called a few people today and asked them to get on this call tonight, just for info. Just to hear it out. I called 3 people and asked them if they were interested in hearing more about my story, or trying a product. As Beth says...its a marathon, not a sprint and I cannot compare my self to other people who hit the ground running, while I am just slowly crawling along. Everyone is different and I matter just as much as they matter. I made myself a little uncomfortable today and when I was asked to actually share my story on the call...I didn't completely freak out. I shared my story and didn't panic. Who is this girl?? The old me would have stressed myself into sickness with worry, but no...I was calm, cool and collected.
I got this...uncomfortable...I may just get comfortable with you after all.
