My life is in a current state of unrest. I’m a wife, mom of three kids (two are 5 and under), an employee, and an entrepreneur. In my quiet time, which isn’t often, I’m pondering and searching for fulfillment, meaning, and guidance. But you know what, that is OK. Caution Work Ahead: It’s ok to be a work in progress!
A Whole New World
Often times, when things start to feel chaotic or out of place, we seek help. Sometimes those outlets of help are family and friends and sometimes they are others we look to emulate, those that appear to have it all together or at least have what we need. It can be a slippery slope when you sign up for 1 challenge, 1 email list, 1 podcast, you’ll find a new world to surround yourself with.
Last month, a fellow We Spot Blogger, Dawn wrote about managing all the voices we follow and it really resonated with me because like many of you, I follow so many thought leaders. When you follow so many people, it can be easy to get lost or overwhelmed. It’s awesome to have so much information at your fingertips. However, when you don’t know what to do with it, that stops being productive. Take one tip at a time and implement. That is progress.
When you immerse yourself into a new world, you may find a new community that you can lean on when you need it most. Back in the spring, I wrote a blog post about lessons I learned. When I entered the online sales and business space about five years ago, I was experiencing a different kind of unrest. I had a 6 month old baby and was trying a new adventure in direct sales. I wanted more of everything. I wanted progress I could see and feel.
A Supportive Community
Naturally I got on social media, and I found women that were kicking butt in direct sales and business. I signed up for this free training and that free challenge. Through all the searching, I found a tribe of amazing women that helped me and supported me along the way.
Together, we have grown and been challenged by so much. We picked each other up and encouraged each other through the ups and downs. We pushed each other to be better. And the best part is, we know we still have a ways to go. We’re constantly learning, growing and adapting. Caution Work Ahead: It’s ok to be a work in progress!
