I woke up one day, realized I hated my job, and I was the boss.
We make money by making friends, and we enlarge our circle of friends by making money for them, by helping them, by being of service to them. The first law of success is service.
My name is Marianne
And I have been on a journey of self-discovery for the past several years. I now realize I will be on this journey for the rest of my life. I thought I knew what I wanted, I thought I knew where I was going, and I thought the path I was on would lead to a pot-of-gold! As it turned out, I was wrong. I always had a smile on my face and no one knew I was dying on the inside, I didn't even know it. There were a handful of people who could see through the smiles and laughs, and they knew deep down inside I was not okay. Don't get me wrong, I have been married for nearly 36 years and have two great kids who I love dearly. The pain I was suffering had nothing to do with my family, it had everything to do with how I viewed myself. I was positive on the outside but extremely negative on the inside. I would say the right words out loud, but when the words came out of my mouth, I didn't believe them. The biggest challenge came when I realized I didn't know what I wanted anymore, so I began my journey of self-discovery. Aghhhh! At first, I felt even worse, knowing that I'd been spinning my wheels for all those years, but it was also a relief because I knew I had an opportunity to do something different! Before I was focused on my need and lack of money. And sure enough, when I had the opportunity to make lots of money some disaster would rear its ugly head, and sure enough both my need and my lack would be at the forefront of my mind. I did not realize that everything I feared just kept coming true. My thoughts were so negative, and I was giving all my energy to negative thoughts, and nothing good could get in. Not everyone is ready for a "journey of self-discovery." It's scary and hard and could take years. You have to be prepared and willing to do the work. Just like network marketing, it is scary and hard and could take years. However, if you are like me and knew that life had more to offer then it is all worth it. YOU have to ask yourself if you are willing to make a change. Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? You have to make a decision to either make a change or stay where you are at. Let's face it... change is HARD and staying the same is HARD too!
