Today’s “Motivational Monday” post has to do with not looking back. Wow — that kind of sounds depressing, doesn’t it? Well, I guess I was… or am… a little depressed (if I’m going to be honest). It’s important to note that whenever I find myself wearing ‘these shoes’ it’s all about perspective. Is the glass half full or half empty? Personally, I’ve always been a “half full” kind of girl. I try to push through the rough & find the positive in whatever hand has been dealt (and I don’t even know how to play cards)!
Anyway, have you ever found yourself in a ‘questionable’ place in your life? I think I’m in one of those places…
OK, here’s where I am. Tell me what you think….
When I signed on with ONEHOPE I was so excited…I truly believed I was going to make an impact! I was ready and willing to change the world… literally and figuratively. Seriously, when I thought about the opportunity I couldn’t help but think, “Uh yeah, who doesn’t enjoy a glass of wine now and again?… and who wouldn’t purchase wine from such an amazing company”? My goodness, ONEHOPE was founded on the principal of making an impact everyday!
But you know what? This sales thing…it’s hard! Sometimes it’s really hard! Sure there are those awesome days where you feel like nothing is going to stop you…. and then others where you feel like you’ve run into a brick wall. I guess if it were easy all the time then it would take all the learning out of the equation, right?
Anyway, since I’m at one of these ‘brick wall’ moments I’ve told myself I can’t look back! I need to keep on keeping on. I am also going to keep reminding myself (every hour if needed) my ‘why’ and keep pressing moving forward. Oh and I’m also going to stop making my ups & downs so personal. (I’ll admit that small point is very challenging.) I’m lousy at sales — I should just leave that to Steve. 😉
Anyway, the point of today’s post… have you ever thought about giving up? Just throwing in the towel ’cause things got ‘hard’? When do you tell yourself, “enough is enough”… or do you never find yourself in that spot? If you’ve never been where I’m literally sitting — please tell me what to do? I sure don’t want to look back… I’m not going that way!
Funny (yes, there’s something funny buried in all this), Steve told me (a few times now) that the skills I’m learning from my ONEHOPE adventure are truly valuable. He’s mentioned that I’ve met some awesome people along the way & have built some truly special friendships. Ya know what? He’s 100% correct! There’s my positive! (Thanks honey!)
But I do have to ask the question… who would have ever believed that selling wine would be challenging?! I know plenty of people who enjoy wine…. and many more who won’t admit they enjoy wine… so again, the pesky question…. why is selling wine so challenging? Especially wine that’s giving back locally?
So, even though I’m not where I’d like to be in my ONEHOPE venture… I’ll keep looking ahead (need to take my own advice) and do my best to make an impact… one bottle at a time!
Finally, if you read this entire post, thank you! Be sure to let me know so I can give you a few more (((hugs))) the next time I see you.
Sending you positive thoughts today & even bigger (((hugs)))! ☺️
