How many times have you not done something because you might be bad at it or make a fool of yourself or hate it. Today is Take a Chance Day! It's an opportunity for you to get out there and be bold.


There are so many things I've missed out on because I was afraid I'd look stupid. I regret a lot of it because I missed out on A LOT of Fun. 


I've learned it's ok to laugh at yourself. Think of all the famous people you love because they can laugh at themselves. I do stupid sh*t all the time. I'm not self-conscious about it any more. If I try something and I'm horrible, at least I've probably brightened someone's day. Or I've given them the confidence to try something new.


Sometimes being bad at something makes it more fun. I'm a horrible bowler, not so bad that I need the bumpers, but pretty bad. I still go bowling, and I have a blast because I don't get all upset if I miss that spare. But I do get super excited when I make it. You don't have to be great at everything.


Taking a chance builds your confidence. It means you can do anything. Talk to the cute guy at the coffee shop, apply to the job you've been dreaming about, learn a new language, or travel.  I even started a home business, scariest thing ever, but so worth it. If you don't take a chance, you'll never know how far you could have gone. 


In the end, people only regret the things they never did.

Do you ever feel like you've spent your whole life with other people telling you what to do? From your parents, to school, to your boss, you have probably had very little power over how you spend your time. For most of my life I was told when to have lunch (even if I wasn't hungry), when I could go on vacation, when I had to be up (even if I was still tired), and how much my time was worth (way undervalued there).


Does this sound like your life? Didn't you think that when you grew up, that you'd be the boss of you? Most likely you're still not the boss of you. That sucks!


Imagine getting up when your body's ready. There's no stress or rushing so you're not late. You can enjoy your breakfast and coffee/energy drink/ in my case Diet Coke. Then you decide what to do next. You could go for a walk, get some work done, run errands, read a book, doesn't matter it's totally up to you. You get to be the boss of you.


I took the power back in my life by creating my own home business. I determine what I'm worth and how I spend my time.

The number one reason that people fail in home based or internet businesses is they quit before they reach success. Making money online is a SKILL. When you join a company that is consistantly allowing others to create results, there's no reason you shouldn't also be able to achieve the same.


When you join an opportunity, it might take a while to get results. You have to learn about the products, what's working for others, and who your ideal customers are. Sometimes you don't get results because you're talking to the wrong people. Sometimes it's because you can't answer questions. And sometimes it's because you're not passionate about what you're doing. Occassionally it's because the system isn't duplicatable.


What you should look for in a business opportunity. 


Not all opportunities are created equal. I have found that there are certain things a company must have if you want to succeed. First you need a system that is duplicatable. This means that numerous people are able to use the system to get results. 


Next there should be great support and training systems. I had no idea what I was doing when I started working online. I would have never made my first sale without the amazing company training. Training also keeps you up to date on what's working now. The internet is constantly evolving, so your efforts need to grow with it to keep you current and effective. Working from home can be isolating. The companies I  use and love, have great communication between members, there are Facebook groups, events, webinars, you name it. You become part of a family that supports you, shares your vision, and motivates you when you need it.


The most important thing to look for in a company is, they have to have a Product you Love and Believe in. The biggest reason for this is you will be passionate about the products. You will be able to show others how it can improve their lives. When you love your products, you build trust with your audience. Why would you ever sell something you didn't like?  People know when you are not being genuine, and they don't like it. It hurts your reputation. I use and adore any product I endorse in my business or to my friends.

Today is National Blah, Blah, Blah Day. If you've never heard of it, don't worry I hadn't either. So what is blah blah blah day? It's a day to do all of the projects and things that people have been nagging you to do. That includes the things you've been nagging yourself to do.


Blah blah blah day is about procratination. All the things you've been putting off, usually because they're either scary or just not fun. 


The scary stuff is usually something new, that you've never done before. Maybe you're afraid you'll suck at it or even worse be a total failure. The good thing about fear is most of it is entirely in your head. Chances are you've imagined crazy possibilities that are really unlikely. The best way to deal with the scary stuff is to jump in with both feet. Worst case scenario you learn something from the experience. Best case, it turns out amazing!!


The boring stuff requires a different strategy. Whenever I have to do something I don't like, I do one or all of the following. Presents (essentially I bribe myself)!!! Who doesn't love presents? There's always something you want, new shoes, a massage, sporting equipment, doesn't matter what it is. My rule is the bigger the task the bigger the prize can be. My second strategy is my timer method. I set a timer for 10-20 minutes and have to work on that one thing until the timer goes off. Anyone can do something for 10  minutes. When the timer goes off you move onto the next thing. Finally, get some help. Things are always more fun when you have someone to do them with. Plus they get done faster. Why do you think paint parties were invented? 


Use these simple strategies and you won't have to hear blah, blah, blah anymore and you get to check some things off your list

We are all stressed out at some time, maybe you have a job interview or an upcoming test. You could be stressed because you have too much to do or your finances are strained. Some of us are stressed so much, that we don't even realize it anymore. How awful is that? Next time you're stressed, try one or all of these stress relievers.


Put on some music. Music is a great mood changer. It actually affects your brain and can lower blood pressure. We all have at least one song that makes us happy. It could remind you of a great time you had, or a person that makes your heart sing, or the words alone might lift your spirit. Music can take you to a whole new mindset and reenergize you.


Go for a walk. Sometimes it helps to just remove yourself from everything. Walks can be calming. Nature is a great mood balancer. It can calm you and give you a peacefulness. Removing yourself lets you regain perspective and come back in a better state. Work it out. Go to the gym, do some yoga, or even just some stretches. Exercise can get rid of that nervous or irritated energy. It releases those feel good endorphins and helps you chill out.


Organize your sh*t. There's always a calming effect when everything is clean and put away. Even organizing your finances or scheduling appointments you've been putting off can bring a huge sense of calm. Imagine not having to scour your desk looking for the bill you have to pay today. When you know where everything is, it gets rid of that frazzeled feeling.

Laugh!! Laughter releases endorphins, making you happier. Honestly, you can't be laughing and be all uptight at the same time. So watch a funny movie, call that hilarious friend, or spend some time with kids. 


Meditate your stress away. Using meditation or even hypnosis can alter your brain's state. It can relax you or help you come up with a solution. It's kind of like when your trying super hard to remember something, so it stays just out of reach. But once you relax and stop focusing on it, whatever you were trying to remember just pops into your head. Added bonus, you feel so reenergized after.


Get Social. Sometimes when we're stressed out, we feel like we're in it all by ourselves. That makes it isolating and even scarier. So by calling a friend, getting in a discussion group, or connecting with others on social media you realize you're not alone. You can see how others have handled similar situations, or sometimes it helps to just talk about what's going on.

Lastly, and my favorite pamper yourself. Scheduling a massage, a hair appointment, accupuntcture, or even just a shopping trip can all melt away stress. You can even go bigger and get away for the weekend. Nothing rejuvenates you like a vacation (or even a staycation). Sometimes we are so busy that we forget to take care of ourselves. These things not only pamper you, but they relax you and improve your whole outlook. Think about it, have you ever been stressed out after a massage?


Honestly, do whatever works for you. Throw everything at it. These are not your only options.


Lock arms with our amazing team and join us for uplifting and sometimes lifechanging calls.
