There are days when I am superwoman– I get it ALL done, my crazy to do list, my never ending chores, my work, my Mary Kay, sewing, time with my husband, family time, a workout, you know, all the normal things women do
and then there are days when I accomplish nothing– I get out of bed, get dressed, and eat… that’s all I’ve got.
No matter the day I must always remind myself that forward movement, no matter how small or slow is OKAY.
Seriously Ericka, it is alright.
I want to just be a super director already with a team of working working super women who put as much into their businesses as I put into mine, who do the things they know they need to do to get to where the want to be, and I want to already drive for free with Mary Kay, and have a crazy big customer base…. because that’s the person I am, if I’m going to do something I’m going to do it as fast as humanly possible.
That ain’t happening in my Mary Kay.
And frankly given my life, it’s not going too. But it’s that 15 minutes I spend every day, or 30, or an hour– just SOMETHING, every day on my Mary Kay.
It’s the new face I meet who needs a smile and an uplift. It’s the customer who has been plagued forever by her skin and now loves it thanks to Mary Kay products. It’s the new consultant who joins and spends her last $100 on faith that God is going to grow that $100 through her hard work into an amazing story– and then it really happens.
That’s my success.
One person at a time, one day at a time, one 15 minutes at a time and I will meet my success when it is MY time.
It’s not the fast way but that’s ok. It’s the right way and it’s the way that will teach me the most lessons in life and help me to grow to be the best version of me yet.
So bring on the slow and hold her steady as she goes and really Ericka— remember this when you’re frustrated ok?
