New Beginnings Start With You
Well, it’s been awhile since I’ve written on this blog. Lots of life changes have come and gone in my personal life, business and family, many new beginnings. Inspired by a dear friend Ronae, the Second Chance Doc I felt compelled to start writing again. I hope to inspire others to discover, through their daily life’s journey where they belong, too.
So, today it’s time to write about the success I found right in my daily life. I hope you enjoy reading or are at least inspired by what I’ve learned and will share it with others who may be at the same place in their lives as we are. Ready? Here we go….
First of all I owe you all an apology. I’ve learned over the past three years one very important trait that I possess. That trait is that I am definitely an entrepreneur, one driven by tasks that I can accomplish each day, where I actually see results. As much as I hate to admit it, the truth is that one trait is one reason why I never rose in ranks in network marketing. There, I said it…I realized I am not a failure; no, that just was not the correct path for my success to build on.
So why apologize to you? Because if in any way shape or form you felt pressured, you felt mislead or deceived or you felt I left you hanging in any business dealing with me – I am truly sorry. I would not hurt a fly let alone another human being. I’ve realized that leading others that don’t necessarily have the same passion, goals and drive that I do, well it’s simply not for me, that is not where my strengths lie. You know what? Once I admitted that to myself…I was free! That one act of acknowledging my weaknesses and strengths was very liberating. That may be an understatement but one that fits the bill perfectly.
If you have been struggling to build a business in network marketing, MLM or whatever your company calls it and you feel like a failure…STOP IT! Take a step back; evaluate YOU, your strengths and weaknesses. You know you best. When you stop listening to the chatter of others who think they know what’s best for you and you take time to really go inward, meditate on what YOU want (not your husband, aunt, uncle, friend or business associate) then and only then will you be free to become the person, wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend you were designed to be. Now it’s time for your new beginning, go on it’s right inside of you.
Until next time…go find the real strength inside of you, let it shine. If this helped in any way, please share.

Great post Carla. Oh how I can relate! I used to beat myself up because I just wasn’t able to me successful in an MLM no matter what I did. And it’s not that I didn’t do everything I was told I needed to do. I was made to feel like a failure. Then one day I realized it just wasn’t my path and I stopped. I’ve found a different path and am on my journey toward the success that eluded me for so many years. It feels good and I feel good. That’s what’s most important!!
Thank you Meli. It’s hard to put in writing how liberating it is to recognize where you don’t belong as much as it is to realize where you belong…then you begin to thrive and truly enjoy life!!!!
What a great post Carla! Its funny how so many of us have wasting heaps of time and energy thinking we “should” do this or that…… I agree with you – just STOP! I know for me, when I’m true to who I am and stop following the crowd (just because everyone’s doing a thing) and stop telling myself I “should” be different, so much liberation happens! Here’s sending you overflowing buckets full of JOY and HOPE as you navigate your success journey, your way!
Thank you Ronae! You have been instrumental in helping to realize my full potential in so many ways! Thanks seems pretty insignificant…but, it comes from the heart.
