Nobody will give a F*$k like you will. Take ownership of your life!
Hey, everyone. I have something heavy on my heart that I want to share with you.
I started my training company a year ago. As most of you know, I was a network marketer. Love network marketing, love it. However, this last year has been a flipping journey. It has been me hitting a lot of walls, it has been me taking a lot of daggers to my back, it has been a lot of people having their own preconceived notions about what I was doing. You know what, that’s all cool. I get it. However, I had to seriously release all that crap. I want to speak to those out there dealing with the sh*t that I have dealt with. I want to help you guys understand to take ownership of your life because nobody is going to give a crap as much as you.
We sit around all day long thinking, “If I make this move, what will people think of me? If I create this, what will people think of me? If I go buy that thousand dollar bag, what are people going to think of me? If I go buy a new car, what are people going to think of me?” It’s such BS I cannot even stand it.
Recently, a good friend of mine decided that she wanted to leave her current company. She was surrounded by toxic people. She leaves, and she’s absolutely happy about where she’s at. She was formerly building with her cousin who basically told her that she ruined her life, blocked her from Facebook, it’s ridiculous!
Where you put energy, is where energy goes. Understand that.
I had to help her process those feelings and release those feelings and then move on as fast as possible.
People will always have their own agenda. People will always have their own thoughts. People will always hate on you for whatever reason. People will always be down about their lives. People will always be confused about what you’re doing rather than what they should be doing with their own life.
I have been full fledged moving in fast forward mode. It’s noon here in Chicago, and I have already made four figures today in my day. And usually, I might sit there and say, “Oh God, do I deserve that?” I start questioning, “Oh my gosh, do we deserve that?”
My husband and I work very hard, damn right, I deserve it! Once I took ownership of everything I went through this past year, every single heartache, every single time I felt like throwing in the towel, every single time I wanted to hit my head up against the wall, every single time I was hurt from my upline in my past company. If you don’t know, I terminated my position with that company.
I left all those toxic people behind that were literally just … I don’t even know how to explain it. It was so fourth grade-ish. I cannot even talk about what happened. I won’t talk about what happened because it wasn’t the company’s fault. It was the people that I was aligned with in that company. Guess what? I move on and I am 150% happier. It had nothing to do with my downline, it had nothing to do with the people I was working with personally that came through me. It had to do with the people that were leading us. I did not like the direction that they were leading.
I did not make a decision based on what other people were going to think, because obviously, some people were upset, but I had to make a decision that was right for me. — Guess what? So happy.
Back to my friend. She’s being barraged by her cousin, own family member. Horrible.
Why would you let those people win? They want you to be stopped in your tracks. They want you to walk that line. Why walk the line? Get off the line. Get out of the bubble. Get out of the box. Go out and make your sh*t happen because I’m going to tell you right now, life is way too short. We’ve lost some really close people to us this past year unexpectedly, and it really does make you reevaluate your life and where you’re going.
I am unapologetic.
I am unapologetic about the decisions I have made. I am unapologetic about the time that I spent in my business. I am unapologetic about me making four figure days.
Hello! This is everything I worked for. You know what? Every single time I make a sale or an income comes through, I thank Jesus. I really, really do. I have lost Jesus in the past. He is back in my life. Thank you. I am seriously blessed. We are blessed, but being blessed, it doesn’t happen overnight. Success does not happen overnight. You have to put consistent persistent action in it every single day.
There is no easy ticket you guys.
There’s so many great things to come. Yes, I feel like ripping my hair out sometimes trying to balance all of it. You know what? It’s me, and that’s okay, because I’m being me. I do me. I don’t do anybody else. I’m not here to please anybody else. I’m here to make an impact and to create an empire of freaking entrepreneurs so they can go out and live the life that they’ve always dreamed and desired and deserve.
People who have a problem with that, totally cool. You know why? Because I don’t give a, you know what. All right? That’s just the way it comes. That’s just the way the cookie crumbles.
I do care about people. People that know me know that I am an open book. I am an open book. I share my heart. I share my soul. I give it to you straight. I’m not going to sugarcoat anything, because that is not who I am. Even when I was a baby, my dad would say, “Julie, do I look fat in these pants?,” and I would say, “Hm, yeah kind of dad.” They’d say, “We’d always go to Julie when we want the honest to God opinion and answer.
My friend said, “Now I know … now I know exactly what you went through from those people and what they were doing to you. Now I know exactly what that feels like.”
Nobody knows the backstory. Nobody knows what you go through except for you. Again, that’s why no one else will give a crap as much as you. Go out and build a life that you love. Be who you want to be. Don’t be anybody else
It broke my heart, because she obviously loves her family member. Her family member has her own demons living in her head, that she had to pull out her crap and put it on to my friend.
It’s network marketing. This is not heart surgery.
She did not ruin your life. She did not ruin your business.
You are in control of your own destiny. You are in control of your own business, nobody else.
If you’re network marketing, look at yourself. Stop looking at other people around you to build your team. That right there is the biggest no-no. You love on your team. Right? You create the energy and the synergy that you need. Right? You work together. You collaborate, and you go for it. They will not build your business. You build your business if you’re in network marketing.
Guess who’s responsible for my success? Me, that’s it.
Am I helping people produce results? Am I teaching them what they need to be taught? Am I moving them forward? Am I getting them unstuck? Am I giving them all the tools and resources? That comes from me.
Look at whatever thing you’re doing. If you want to create your own business and you feel like you’re done with your nine to five and you’re done with dealing a horrible boss like I was. I was 22 years old when I bought a franchise. The reason I was so desperate to buy a franchise was to get the hell away from my boss who literally made me feel this big. You see that? She made me feel that big every single day.
I was crying every morning when I walked into that building, and I made a promise to myself 20 years ago and I said, “I will never ever.” If I look at an office building, I break out. I swear to God. I will never go back to corporate America, but see, that’s me. That’s how badly it affected me at such a young age, so I bought a franchise. I made that work. Right? Morning, noon, and night, I lived there every single day for the first three years. No joke. Basically, I was running an adult daycare.
But I found network marketing, the most amazing thing in the world.
One company only I thought I was going to be at. Guess what? That did not work out. Boo-hoo. Right? It sucked because I built a huge freaking business there, but I had the mentality, “If I did it here, I could do it anywhere.”
You make it work.
My message to you today is be unapologetic about who you are, because you deserve everything that this world has to offer.
Be blessed. Live life with joy, purpose, freedom.
Whatever it is that you want to do, go out and make it happen, because nobody else will.
Bye for now guys.
