What is important? - Day 25

It's been quite a journey since I've began Herbalife. I've been through so much with gathering myself, my tools, the lessons, the hardship, and now I'm learning how to balance family in there. I've been living most of my life without family, as you have found that out in my previous posts. So now that I am surrounded by love and family, there is a new experience to balance along with running my Herbalife enterprise. A couple of years ago the herbalife products, mostly niteworks, has truly saved my dad's life. My dad suffered from a stroke and about seventy to eighty percent of his heart was damaged from using drugs. He had thirty days to improve his heart condition by fifteen to twenty percent. I got him using the niteworks and in thirty days his heart improved by thirty-five to forty percent, resulting in him avoiding a surgery to put in a stint. Three years has passed since and my dad is doing well. He is smoking like crazy! A couple of days ago he totaled his car because he had a coughing spell and blacked out. He was safe but his car was totaled. I often realize if there is anything one can do? I often question my dad's behavior, and ask if he truly has the will to live? Today was a very important day for my dad and I. I was able to spend the day with him and ask him my life's most pressing questions. I had put my herbalife work on the side today. I did two retail presentations and got two new customers this morning. I could not pass the opportunity to spend with my dad. Since I've known my father, I had not the opportunity to ask some things that I questioned. I asked what was the relationship with my mom like? I asked if they fought alot when she was pregnant. I asked if they got along once I was born. I asked if they had fights in front of me. I was just a curious cat. I learned something quite interesting from a quick mastermind with my friend Yvonne about the biology of belief which is why I asked. Perhaps it is true that most of our programming begins when we are in the mothers womb up until six years of age and the programming stops. All the mind chatter we hear all stems from that time of programming. What if it is true?
I still am maintaining my momentum. The work I am doing today will be my next week, next month, next meeting. It's great to keep up with the numbers.

Follow Through - Day 24

Today was a pretty amazing day. Looking at my gauges for the month, I am right on target to going over the 40 presentations for the business. I have my first two hopefuls of signing however, I do know that this is not the number. I am consistently working everyday and the more I do it the more confident I am becoming that I can fill our meetings with people. I used to think that this was impossible for me because I had not done it before. But as I began having a minimum of five people in the room, I began to see it as becoming very real and possible. I realized alot about my self and my dreams on tonight's focus group call. I realized it's okay to be me and that my goals and dreams are authentic to what's important to Shannon.
This is a revelation because now I know that even though my dreams may be to have lavish things and to stand out of the crowd beaming with recognition it's all good. This is what stirs my heart and this is what I can see for myself in the near future. I'm getting better at following through till the end. This first thirty days are almost over and I can see myself exceeding my best next month. This month so far has been my best month in productivity however, the months to follow will be my best months for results. I can say this with certainty and it is very exciting.

Spaghetti Sauce - Day 23

Being conscious everyday is probably the most important decision (besides deciding to feel good) to make every morning we begin the new day. Today was a day when I have failed to make the decision to be conscious and aware. The title of the blog is spaghetti sauce. I learned this from Ellie Drake today on the art of attracting Cd.
I'm proud of myself for keeping up with this first thirty days of creating good habits and momentum. However, everyday I must be conscious of what kind of ingredients I'm adding to my sauce. Let's say my sauce are my intentions, my dreams and what I want manifested into the physical reality. I'll use today for example. I certainly did not feel that I was adding all the right ingredients that make a good sauce. I realize I was adding curry or spices that did not go into my creation. I allowed those old programs of scarcity into the mixture and that certainly did not make me feel good. Half the morning went by and I could not get myself out of the funk? So I traced my thoughts. It must be what I'm thinking that did make me feel good. Then I decided to switch. I began to think about what it would feel like when I could spend all the money I could on things that I truly wanted to have. And this started to feel good. I began to think about how awesome it would be to spend quality time with my grandma and take her shopping wherever she wanted to go. I began "daydreaming" and this started to make me feel good. Even sitting under the tree for a moment could not get me out from where I was. I'm grateful because I still had five guests in the presentation today which is the average number. I remember when I would have fifty people confirmed or even twenty and no one would show. It probably was because of what I was thinking. Tomorrow is a new day and I am ready to hit the marketplace. That's another reason why I haven't felt good because I haven't been out talking to people for the past three days! I truly love this business. It gives me the opportunity to be more of who I am and I can design and do the things that I love to do, and that's getting out there and being with the people.
Last weeks results, I had eleven presentations, two new wholesale customers, and two new customers today. Business is certainly going in the right direction.

Couple Things-Day 22

In our focus group we are studying a book titled The Energy of Money. We are on Principle 3: Goals Focus Your Money Energy. We do the exercises at the end of each chapter which if we are willing to go there, will unbury truth from which we see things and from which we operate. The question was how do I feel about the word goals? Everday we our committed to a personal development log. Where we study daily either from a book, cd, dvd, whatever the source and we pick up what impacted us in that study. We write a short paragraph of what we learned without using the book and then another short paragraph of how we will change or implement what we've learned. I've been doing this personal development log daily for five years straight, six days a week. Here is what I wrote regarding the word goals:
I was reflecting on the exercise of what thoughts come to mind when I think about goals. I realized that I used to dread the word goals because in my old mind I had not reached any that I had set for myself to move up the marketing plan.

What I learned from this lesson is that the goals I had set to move up the marketing plan at that time were not actually the goals my soul wanted. My soul still yearned to express and heal itself. I now realize that I had accomplished goals much more meaningful to me at that time because it involved personal growth and expansion, much of what was needed in order for me to come to clear decisions in the now.

The other thing I wanted to talk about (I titled this blog Couple Things) was my note from God.
Gods message to me is: That you can only give away what you already have inside yourself.
True giving happens when you are overflowing from the inside, and cannot help but share. When there is so much love within you that it has to flow to others or you would burst open. There is no thinking involved, no willpower in such sharing. It just flows out. If you have to force yourself to be kind, to love, to feel compassion, you've missed the first step of filling in your own Self with these emotions.

This just hit me like a lightbulb! I know how to attract with kindness. And sometimes when it is time for me to follow up with my leads I struggle with the initial step of getting on the phone because it takes my ego to humble itself and be kind! This is it...I sometimes struggle with being kind? This is judgement. Judgement from the ego. So now that I am aware of force, it does not have to be this way anymore. I can remember this message and be conscious. This is the hero's journey.

Lessons for the Week-Day 21

Congratulations to me! You know experts say that it takes twenty-one days to instill a new habit and today is the twenty first day of the ninety-day plan.
Here are some of the things that have kept me on track this week:
Do the Right Small Things on a Daily Basis. This has taken me the entire three weeks to get into the hang of things. I am still working until it becomes a well-oiled routine.
Moving forward is a way of thinking. When I begin my day thinking about where I will be and why I choose to work like the top leaders, this inspires me into action.
Be who you know you can stretched out of your comfort zone. When I think about the person who I want to emulate and ask myself what would they do in this situation, this too, inspires me into action.
Be flexible with change. This is a good one too because when certain family situations come up, when I must accompany grandma and the dog to the vet, I can flex my schedule, knowing that what I must do for the week is not optional.
Trust the process --when one journey ends, another journey begins.
The more you develop your self-esteem, the more you will develop
self-confidence. I learned this from the book written by Lisa Nichols "No Matter What." I am now developing the "Having faith in myself muscle."
Operate from eagerness rather than anxiousness. This is an interesting dynamic I have observed in myself. Shortness of breath reminds me that I am operating from anxiousness. I take it as a sign for me to stop and self-correct. What am I thinking about? Why am I anxious? and tell the truth about it. It's all mind made stuff.
Move forward… one step at a time. This is an important reminder for me everyday. This keeps me in perspective that I what must get done is only for the day. When tomorrow arrives I will do what is necessary at that time.
Only considered a failure if you quit.
True champions keep on moving forward.
I have exceed my recruiting numbers for the past week. I went over the number of leads, the number of invitations and the number of presentations. I fell real short of the amount of distributors I have yet to sign, however I believe this number will be fulfilled real soon. So I am eagerly anticipating the new week and once and for all finally mastering these ninety-day plans all the way to the Herbalife vacation in 2010.

Intuition-Day 20

Today is Saturday and it turned out to be a great day. The way my work week runs is getting the exact number of invitations to the Herbalife Opportunity Meeting on Tuesdays and Saturdays. These two days gauge my results of how many people actually show up then this way I can calculate my percentages. This week Tuesday I had nine guests show up and today I had two. Which leaves me on track for the number of presentations I should have for the week which is or over ten. Although I haven't signed anyone yet who's ready to do the "business", I have signed two new wholesale distributors or preferred customers who enjoy using the products at a discount. On my way to the meeting this morning, I had a confirming insight or intuition. I found myself focusing my mental energy towards making sure my guests show up (sigh) when I realized that I have done the numbers. I used to use this pattern of thinking when I wasn't doing the numbers and wishing and hoping people will show. But this is different, I no longer have to wish or hope, I expect people to show because I trust the Universal laws are working with me which is why I take daily action.
My intuition said it's not my business to put energy there. My focus is to be used energizing my vision and to be very clear with where I want to go. I must allow the universe to help me in this way that It will do it's job in bringing the people in. I felt a strange comfort in knowing this and it turned out to be a wonderful day.
My pipeline of presentations is getting full, so my next step now is to master the follow up. I know by doing great follow up, even though people may not be ready now, I have a feeling that when they are they'll be back. I hear them saying now or in the very near future "Shannon I am ready." Why not? People are looking for a good company today with good people and that's what Herbalife can offer them.

Choices-Day 19

I believe we are faced with choices in each moment of the day that determines whether or not you will choose to stay on path or take a different course. Today was one of those days. It's easy to make excuses for ourselves but then there is that still small voice that says don't do it, just stick with what you are called to do today. I almost stayed in today. But then I listened to the voice within and went out prospecting. It's that small moment of integrity that keeps you going and begins the rest of the momentum for the day. I believe if I stayed in, I would not have met the awesome people that I met today. Good, qualified people who are searching for a way to improve their lives. I believe that when I go out, there is a divine reason for my crossing paths with others. I believe that every person I meet is asking in some prayer for a better way and I come in as a disguise or even an angel. Some people see it and some don't it's okay. My job is to continue to go and share the message. To be the beacon of hope, a sparkle of light. I believe there is always a reason why I go out. There's days when things run smoothly and there's days when they don't which is why Mark Hughes says we do it over and over and over again. We just never know when we'll meet that next person who grabs the opportunity and rises to the top.
All my goals were met today and for that I am eternally grateful for the spirit that flows through me and guides me throughout the day.

The Joy of Animals -Day 18

The pure joy of giving kindness. This is an amazing dynamic of giving and receiving. Before I talk about my bewilderment with animals let me begin sharing this awesome day. I handed a gentlemen a work from home card today on the bus and he proceeded to tell me he wasn't interested. No problem. I started reading my personal development book. During our ride he asked me about the opportunity so I shared with him my personal story of where I was before Herbalife. He started sharing his story. As I listened with empathy, I realized that this man just needed a good company. He was amazed to hear where I've been and what I've become in a short period of time. When he left I could see a sparkle in his eye and a glimmer of hope in his heart that I had not seen prior to our talk. He told me that my card reflected a "bright light" in his world of darkness where he couldn't see the end of the tunnel. I told him that Herbalife will groom him to become a millionaire if that's what he chooses. He left and his day was just a little bit brighter.
Back to the animals. Our cat molly had given birth to kittens a little over a month ago. I watched her care for her kitty's under the house until she brought them up to the porch a few days ago. I sit in the living room with the bay windows open and watch them play. I watch how molly cares for them, and there is just a warm fuzzy and loving feeling that palpitates my heart. It is the most beautiful thing I've seen. More than puppies! Being out with the kittens for just a few minutes each day, stroking them and carrying them makes me feel so good.
Today was an awesome day in the marketplace. I got up this morning, shook off what ever emotions or attitudes that blocked me the day before and got right back to work. More enthusiastic, more passionate and focused. I've exceeded my daily goals because I had to catch up from the day before. All I know is that I am committed more than ever to make my climb to the President's Team consistently, consciously and passionately and it takes one day at a time.

Discouragement-Day 17

I am surprised that I actually fell into the emotion of discouragement today. I was told of many discouraging things the day before and I carried those words into my sleep and I woke up feeling drained. Taking into consideration how many units of energy I have on daily basis to go for my goals and dreams, I used up all those units and leaked energy everywhere! I felt sad today, being the issue. I felt upset with myself? I felt upset with myself because the issue of not being good enough robbed me today. I vowed today to never ever let myself be the issue. I accept and take full responsibility today that I allowed my ego to have the best of me. I refused to let go of the tape that was playing in my head over and over. I have resolved today to keep on moving in the direction to the completion of my 90 day plan. If I'm the only one who believes in me then so be it. I will be my best cheerleader. I will never be upset with myself again. I know my strengths and I will use them humbly. I will be kind to myself from this forward because I know in my heart that I am doing the best the I can with what I know now.

Being a Conscious Conduit of Energy - Day 16

There is just so much that I don't know. I've come to surrender to this truth.
With universal expansion that goes beyond what the five senses can perceive I am just amazed at why things work the way that they do.
I firmly believe that for me to have a successful day I must consciously create the night before with the decision that I will be a conscious conduit, a messenger of kindness to bringing people into Herbalife. My purpose in life is to teach love and healing. My mission in life is Herbalife. The two weave harmoniously together. If I could just be kind and compassionate enough to show people that there are options out there, that they don't have to be where they are today, that they could change for the better, that they could go beyond what they have learned as a child or even an adult. I'm realizing that most adults in society haven't really grown much. Never was taught that could expand their minds and their thinking. I know this because the same goes for me, I did not know that my life could change if I changed the way I think. This is what I want everyday is to bring people into my family, their "new" family. It doesn't mean that we forget about those we love, it means we detach momentarily to become better and new improved people for ourselves and then for others. It means that we start learning how to fulfill ourselves through spirit and learning. I am truly successful when I allow myself to be guided by Spirit. I feel a shift in my energy when I allow this. I am a conduit which means I allow the bigger energy of life to flow through me and outward touching people and awakening those who are ready to be awakened.

Today was the best day I've had in my Herbalife career. I've had the most presentations in one Herbalife Opportunity Meeting today. I had 9 guests show up whom I invited. So tomorrow is a new day, to do it all over again.

Energy Leaks - Day 15

I am so grateful for those moments when you get an aha! or a memory of what you learned in the past in personal development. Today was one of those days. I've been studying from the book "The Energy of Money" and I have been listening to the cd series by Ellie Drake "The Art of Attracting." Two awesome tools for learning. What I discovered today is that everyday I must use my energy units wisely. Each day we are given one hundred units of energy to use as we wish. Imagine the first thing you wake up and you begin thinking about money or the lack of it, and there you spend five units. As we continue to think over mindless things this begins robbing us of our energy units that we are to use to build our businesses everyday. By the time we begin going for our goals and dreams we have only five units to spare which is no wonder we give in before the day is over. Now that I am aware of how many units I have daily, this gives me an edge over myself in which I can now use wisely my intentions and units to complete the day until the next day I am restored to more units. I felt this was a brilliant piece of awareness I have found today!
Today I did reach all my goals. When out into the marketplace with clear set intentions on who I wanted to "be." And with that intention, I created easily and effortlessly. I came home with 40 leads and did my 11 invitations to the business presentation. I exceeded my goals for the day because I was aware at all times and surrendered to being guided by faith and inspiration.
I am now seeing that the more I remember the better I get.

Celebrate and Fix Week Review-Day 14

Today is Sunday May 17th and it's the 14th day of consistent action. I'm happy to review the week. We call it a celebrate and fix. We celebrate all the things that went well during the week and we do more of what's working and then we fix anything that didn't go well and we do better the next week. We also use gauges in Herbalife. Gauges determine our daily, weekly and monthly goals and we use it like what pilots use to get to their destination. I'm grateful for the gauges because it tells me exactly where I am at and where I have to increase action. I love it because at the end of the week, my actual action will meet the desired goals. I keep myself accountable by turning my gauges into my mentor and coaches. I love the gauges because it shows me where I can flex my time during the day and the week.
I am creating my schedule for the new week and I'm excited.

Pushing Through- Day 12

Today is the 12th day of my 90 day plan and I'm pooped! Truly it is a matter of choice, however I feel I have been non-stop since I started. I'm grateful to have a few years under my wing of discipline. My schedule has been quite regimented since I began and I'm happy that I'm able to schedule time for meditation. I find that a good 30 minutes of staying in my center has helped tremendously. Today was an extremely long day in the marketplace collecting leads. When I got home, I just felt like taking a long nap, this is where the pushing through came. I realized that it's the small decisions that make the big difference. The moment I decided I had just enough energy to finish the remainder of my invitations to the business presentation. I pushed through. I considered myself pushing through all day. I can't even count the times I could hear my self talk or "monkey mind" say "let's go home now." But instead I just kept on keeping on. I did my personal development while in transit. At the very end when I really felt like I was going home, something told me to call my mentor and I did. I called to tell her how tired I was! What I really wanted her to do was encourage me and help me to push through and she did. She reminded me of the end result which is the next level for me. The Global Expansion Team and while I listened to her I had another boost of energy and finished the day.
Now it's time to go to bed. I can feel my physical body needing some rest. Tomorrow is a new day. It'll be an awesome day of Herbalife training and I believe I will see some fruits from my labor this week.

Courage to be Transparent-Day 11

I'm struggling to find the words for this blog and topic only because it is my standards of integrity to tell the truth.
I've made some good choices today and some not so good choices today. So let me begin with the good ones first. I'm struggling with this only because I expressed so clearly yesterday about coming full circle with integrity and today I fell short of that in the area of completing my daily goals.
Today did begin as an incredible day, mentoring my new distributor and following up with my retail customers. Then I had to do something grandma asked me to do at a specific time and that had to be done. But because this specific time cut into my time that I was supposed to get leads, going out to get leads didn't happen and as time crept in, I talked myself out of it. I had an awesome healing moment with one of my mentors today and that taught me that I have yet to look into areas of my life that require some deep emotional healing and letting go. Now for the rest of the week I will choose to focus myself back on track. I'm teaching myself to never fall short, to lead with being the exceptional one which means I always stay good to what I say I will do which is meeting the numbers. Now I just assigned myself double duty for the remainder of the week. With the help from others I know it's possible for me to continue to paddle downstream. I believe I can go the extra mile and do double duty. I believe life and playing the game doesn't have to be a hard struggle, but only a game to have fun and be played. Tomorrow I'm drawing another line in the sand and doing it again.

Coming Full Circle with Integrity-Day 10

I'm reading from the book the Energy of Money by Maria Nemeth, Ph.D, and I keep coming back to this particular part of the book-Coming full circle with integrity.
What I've learned is that we are already born with integrity at our core. As I choose to walk the hero's path and make small shifts in my daily activity that resonates with my true values, my purpose and my mission in life I can see how my energy shifts affect the people in my business. I remember what Mark Hughes, Founder of Herbalife once said "Your people will do what you do", "Your business is a reflection of you." It's much easier not to take responsibility for those statements in our lives and in our businesses however the moment that we do, we can see how much growth we can attain. For example, I've made the decision to take the hero's journey, I was fed up with wishing that I could get results, while I wasn't taking the amount of action required to get true momentum in my business, I got fed up with NOT doing a full 90 day plan, I just got fed up. It was painful enough for me to see that I wasn't at the level that other mentors and leaders saw me as. And I needed to make that change. It was time to step up and take my position as a leader, who now runs the state of Hawaii with my other three partners and to now see myself as the leader for my organization. So I decided to make my climb to the President's Team.
As a result I've been committed to taking daily action just as the Mark Hughes plan is designed, I've been coming full circle with having integrity and trustworthiness. This then brought about much miracles falling from the sky. I had a distributor call me today who is in my second generation who came out from nowhere telling me that she has recommitted to herself, her product use and losing those last twenty pounds! So how does that work? The answer is energy. This is what it means to me coming full circle with integrity.
I've reached my daily goals for today and this feels good. I'm really understanding that our business is flexible and not optional. The work for the week still has to get done and it starts by mastering the day.

When I make small shifts other people make small shifts. When I make big changes, my people make big changes. It's like the ripple effect and it's so fascinating and exciting. At the end of the day I know I'll get a good night's rest because I end the day knowing that I did my best!

9th Day-Emotions

This is beginning to feel a little mundane for me and I am feeling this a bit for the people who are following me on this 90 day journey. I'm good with this because this is a place where I can be free and transparent. I have understood and accepted that there will be times when I don't feel like doing this blog, which is why my reasons are bigger than the excuses. There will be days when I don't feel like picking up the phone and connecting with people which is why my reasons are bigger than my excuses.
Here are some questions that I had to ask myself today that has helped:
"Do I believe that this is THE greatest opportunity?"
"Do I believe that I have something of value to offer?"
"Do I believe that people deserve me?"
When I began thinking of myself I realized that there are people out there who may not know if they'll have a home tomorrow, while I sit here in comfort and not have to worry. When I began to think of myself I realized all the other things that could be happening to people out there and here I am with the greatest opportunity and why am I not offering it to people? After I had that long self-talk I choose to get up and do it again.
The results for today:
5 presentations for today who came to the Herbalife Opportunity Meeting.
1 success builder.
6 invitations to the business presentation.

My goal for the month is 40 presentations to our business and I now have 15 today is the 12th.
My goal for the month is to sign 10 distributors and I have signed none yet.
My goal for the month is 3 frontline supervisors and I have none yet.

Keeping in mind that I'm still in the first thirty days. I am still moving forward.

8th Day of the 90 Day Plan

Hi, today is the 8th day of completing my daily goals, 26 leads in 2 two hours, 10 invitations in 3 hours and I'm nearly pooped from an incredible day. I'm tired yet, I am very excited to wake up in the morning because I have many people to call and offer our Herbalife opportunity to. I'm going to make this short because I am mentoring with distributors who are long-distance and because of the different time zones I am committed to be up early for a scheduled appointment tomorrow. I got products out to four people today. I thanked them for helping me carry forth my mission of nutrition with Herbalife!

7th Day of the 90 Day Plan

Today is the seventh day of my 90 day plan, and if you're new to my blog a 90 day plan is the time to plant seeds and begin momentum, mastering a few of Herbalife's basic skills and then learning how to prioritize the month, the week and then the day. Today is my seventh day and I am thrilled that I have completed my goals for the week. My pipeline is beginning to get full and it's exciting because I am beginning to see how the numbers are falling into place.
Here is what worked for me:
Beginning each day the night before.
Knowing what my goals are for the day and where I am for the week.
Starting the day with gratitude.
Reading personal development and doing a log of what I learned. I write a short paragraph of what I'm going to do the next day to implement what I learned.
Attending our weekly trainings.
Listening to my mentors.

Here's what happened on Friday:
Temporarily lost sight of my vision.
Found myself going uphill and forcing things to get done.

Here's what I did to fix it:
Talked to my mentor. She put me right back on track.
Decided that it has to be done before Sunday.
Got to work and finished.

So the bottom line is that by the end of the week, the actual numbers I did according to my gauges meet the goal.

So what I do I do in this new week? The same thing. Over and over until 90 day completion and the snowball effect begins to take place.
The purpose of mastering the 90 day plan is so that I can produce an income of $250,000 by December 31, 2010.

6th Day of the 90 Day Plan

I am humbly proud of myself today. Do you remember I had fallen short of getting leads yesterday? Well guess what? It's a good idea to have a mentor who will not buy into your story and get you back on course. So what did I choose? To work today! Saturday's are usually personal time for my boyfriend and I, but because I didn't finish my Herbalife work on Friday, I had to complete it today. He wasn't too happy about that however, it all worked out in the end. It feels really good and trustworthy when you say you're going to do something and you do it.
There is an energy that flows when this happens and for the first time, I am really looking forward to Sunday to connect with all the people that I met today to invite them to our business presentation. I was short 27 leads for the week. I got those in 1 hour. This comes easy when you have a deadline.

5th day of the 90 Day Plan

"I might be the only person who believes in them." You might be the only person ever in their life to believe in them. Remember this statement. This has been taught to me by one of my mentors.
Today is the fifth day of the 90 day plan. My recruiting results today: 33 names and numbers in 3 hours and 2 new retail customers. The numbers are great, however it was not my goal. My goal for today was 60. What this means is that I have just set myself behind on leads for the week. I'll have to incorporate the difference of 27 into my weekend! As far as my invitations for today 5. My retail volume was $200.

What I learned from today: Not being clear about where I'm going before I head out is a big mistake, it's like living on auto-pilot. I choose to live purposefully and consciously. Having quiet, personal time for connecting with my purpose in the morning. Dressing the pitch has alot to do with how I feel.
So the results are obvious when we choose to operate on automatic, which is not a good thing. All successful people take the time out in the morning to visualize, ask for clarity and know what their purpose and why we are doing what we do.

Still amazing day however, I feel I scheduled my week pretty awesome. Looking at it in the bigger picture, this is still a 90-day plan and today is the 5th day.

My focus is so laser sharp. It's my responsibility to remember everyday.

4th day of the 90 day plan

One thing I have learned from my mentor in Herbalife is that our business is "flexible but not optional." Today was a flexible day. The people that I needed to respond to yesterday that were at the bottom of my list made it to the top of my calls today so that list of calls are done.
I invested time today into learning some amazing and time ready concepts that my mentor has taught me. This is my personal development log for today:
What I learned today is there no such thing as giving too much love. I also learned that I am a powerful messenger who can stand proud for who I am. It’s okay to be me. I learned that when I feel myself tightening up inside, it is sign for me to stop and breath, allowing the information that is being given and taught to process. Tightness could represent itself as information overload.

I now see myself as an amazing leader who my other leaders are depending on to synergize our learning and concepts. My part as a leader is to listen to my leaders as they express what they are desiring to learn and to give open and encouraging feedback. I learn through osmosis and synergy.

Today I got 1 new retail customer, 4 invitations to the business.
I'm happy about our business being flexible but not optional, because I know when the week is over my numbers will match or even exceed what the goal is on my gauges.

3rd Day of the 90 Day Plan-Results

I'm wrapping up an amazing day. Congratulating myself for completing my daily goals. I'm not overly excited because this IS a 90 day plan. I've learned in the past that when I have great days, it's very easy to take your eye off the big picture and the overall goal and take a rest. This I've learned is a BIG mistake.
I did get 13 invitations to the business presentation. I booked 1 retail appointment. I closed and signed one new distributor who is a friend of mine from elementary school. I met him on facebook. Tomorrow is a new day, but still groundhog day where I repeat the same focus, intention and action that I did today.
I will create a priority list tonight before I go to bed and use that for tomorrow. Another thing is that I am on track with my presentations for the week. The goal for the month is 40 and I have 8.

3rd Day of the 90 Day Plan

Today is Wednesday the 3rd day of the 90 day plan. Prioritizing my day the night before has helped me focus on the tasks before me and check them off consciously.
Understanding what is the priority and who is the priority is very important.
I started my day with saying "Thank you...", I'm grateful...and I appreciate..." This has helped me to direct my energy into looking forward to a new day. Same day repeated ninety times.
Working from a checklist helps. I have a small window of time where I intend to focus on getting a few more invitations to the business presentation. So far today, my goal has been to even it out, so the number is 13 invitations. I have 6 and 7 more to go. If I look at it at getting 3 here, 4 there, it makes it much simpler instead of forcing it to make it happen. I've already seen some results, however, the results in the first 30 days is just bonus. The results from the momentum I am building will come to full term in 90 days. I accept that this is the plan. I trust it. This is the same plan that got all of the top leaders to their position in the marketing plan.
One small obstacle today worth mentioning here is that during the course of the day, I was looking at how long I've been on the phone, how many invites I got and how much time I had left. I started feeling anxious, rushed, and fearful. Physiology was telling me to slow down. When I'm "feeling" this it comes through my voice and through the phone so I decided to stop and listen with my heart. This is what my heart said "No force, trust, go easy, listen to classical music, have fun, be who you are." Stopping for just a moment to listen, implement and breath had helped me carry on with what I was doing. I know I will accomplish my daily goals today.

Knowing What is Priority for the Day

Tomorrow is Wednesday which will be my third day of my 90 day plan and I'm creating my schedule based on what is priority. On Wednesday's I have two conference calls that are booked from 6pm-7:30pm and a leadership call at 9pm.
The number of leads I must have by the end of the week will be 120 and the invitations to the presentation will be 50.
By looking at my gauges, I'm on track with my leads which I have accumulated 60, and behind on my invitations which I have accumulated 11. I'm on track with the number of presentations I must have at this point of the week in which I have 7.
So by looking at where I am at, my priority for Wednesday through Friday will be 13 invitations to the presentation. By doing this, I will be on track for the week in all three areas: leads, invitations and presentations.
This is how I was taught to work my schedule according to what is priority. This first thirty days is about building momentum and taking daily consistent action.

What I've learned in the 2nd day of the 90 day plan.

I am truly grateful for this day and I appreciate myself because I accomplished my daily goals for the day. I've learned that I can manage my expectations. I've learned that patience is key to a 90 day process. This is only the second day and I'm looking at strengthening my vision. I must remind myself of what's important and keep my priorities in front of me. I have an expressive personality by nature and I learned that by being true to myself, I must keep my business fun, simple and magical. I've learned that there will be days when I will face obstacles and I am prepared this time to expect them and I will handle them when I get there. When I do, I'll see further, but for now I'll continue to appreciate my time investment, only for the day. When tomorrow comes I'll know what to do next.

The 2nd day of the 90 day Plan

Today is the 2nd day of my 90 day plan. I'm about an hour into call time which I am following up with the leads that I had connected with yesterday.
My goal for the day is ten invitations to the business presentation. I'm already into an hour of call time and I'm hitting into the monkey mind chatter, hurrying me to do better. I've had a couple of people hang up the phone on me as I was giving the dates to the presentation. I am reminding myself that this is part of the process of checking off the eighty percent who will say no.
I've already gotten four invitations and one online presentation out.
During the monkey mind chatter I am purposefully coaching myself with affirmations of belief, that I know the universe is conspiring with me, I'm connecting with the right people who are ready and I'm doing the right things. I am reminding myself that I am a servant, the issue is not about me. I am and will continue to make the calls, while being patient with myself that this is part of becoming a master at the basics. I'm willing and I'm called here to get better.
I believe that I will get better.

My 90 Day Plan- Day 1

Today is May 4, 2009 and it is the first day, the beginning of my 90-day plan. I'm grateful that my company has a "proven" business system a golden goose that continues to lay over 1500 golden eggs since the company's conception. I've decided to be one of those golden eggs so here I begin my quest.
I will use my blog to track myself. Since I'm already transparent on here.
I started my day listening to a conference call by Morgan Devine who has over 20 years of experience in our company.
I took some time for myself in the morning taking deep breaths to connect with my vision and the purpose of me doing what I do.
I set out for the day by bus. I figure I'm going to weave my business into travel time and I found that to be a great success.
Overall work time was about two and a half hours, but transit time about two hours altogether. I did get sixty names and numbers for people who are interested in working from home and joining my team.
During my travel time sitting on the bus, after I used ancient methods like the three feet rule, I invest my time into learning.
I always carry a personal development book and journal with me at all times. Today's books I studied from are The Journey from Success to Significance and The Energy of Money. I already know that I'm a master at gathering leads to call. With enough leads, I can master the invitations. The next part for me to master is my vision. My personal vision of where I'm going and the vision of where my people can go with this amazing vehicle called Herbalife!
It's almost 6pm. The usual call time for business builders is between 6pm-9pm when everyone gets home from work. I will now take a little time out to have some quiet time to reconnect with my vision and purpose for making the calls. I will begin at 6:30pm. My goal is ten invitations, however, my intention is to stretch beyond myself today. I'll keep you posted with my results.
