One thing that I’ve really learned from building a business in network marketing is that each month is a completely fresh start. Even the top 0.00001% in the company get stripped of their title each month and everyone starts again from the bottom together. It’s exciting to know that on the 1st, I’m right there next to some of the biggest superstars in my company. Not everyone thrives on this like I do, but to me there’s something really humbling about seeing whatever rank that I worked for the month before be reset back to zero on the first of each month. I think it’s the anticipation of what could happen over the next 30 days that really gets me so excited. I love to check my anticipated volume on the first day of a month, and then watch myself fly past it as the days go on. Okay, so maybe I’m a little competitive. It’s not a bad thing in this business, trust me. Good things come to those who hustle.
The great thing about the start of a month is that it can be a fresh start for everything in your life. If you messed up your diet, failed to clean your house all month, or didn’t touch your daily step-goal one time in February it DOESN’T MATTER. It really doesn’t. March is here to save the day, with its crisp clean calendar boxes waiting to be filled with your future successes.
Last month I broke through a goal I’ve been working for in my Young Living business for 3 months: Breaking the 1K mark in my organization. It’s not the most massive of milestones, but one that needs to be tread over regardless as I climb to the top. I was excited, because I passed the 1K point on midnight last night as my last mostly order processed.
And when I woke up this morning, I got the opportunity to be back to zero and try to do it again. How awesome is that?! I get to take that excitement of knowing that I CAN do this, and start March off with the confidence and conviction to not only crush that goal again, but also set my sights on my next goal: The big 2K.
I hope that when struggling and hustling to hit these milestones are a distant memory that I can still find the same joy in starting over again each month. There aren’t many times in life that you get to start fresh, and I plan to enjoy this feeling of turning a blank page each month for the rest of my life. If I have something to thank Young Living for, it’s the gift of fresh starts.
March is such a big month. Not only does it have 31 days worth of room to grow, but it also marks the turning point of the year. The start of a new season can offer so much motivation and promise of change that it’s silly not to take the push the universe is giving us and run with it. So please excuse me while I do just that.
I have some BIG things planned for March in order to make my goal happen. And it is going to happen. Stay tuned!
