Do you ever look back on your life and think about what led you to where you are, with all of the unexpected twists, turns, sorrows, and joy?
Last weekend, I was sitting at the A Makers Studio company launch in Memphis thinking about all of the things that brought me to the opportunity of a lifetime! Now, I do not mean the opportunity to make money (that is just a great perk), I am talking about the opportunity to be a part of a company that has a true mission to make a difference in the world! What is money without purpose? For me, it was exhausting.
Only 4 short months ago, I was standing on a stage accepting the 1st place award for a free Caribbean Cruze incentive trip as well as an award for top company sales for the year. Let me tell you, the amount of blood, sweat, and tears that went into making that happen were no small thing. As the months went on though, I was making more money than ever and less satisfied than ever with what I was doing and who I was doing it for. Then, I made the decision to do what was best for my family by walking away from the company, my team, the incentives I had worked so very hard for, and the most income I had ever made. In all, it was simply time for me to let go of the ideas I had about success and oh how beautiful it was to let that go!
Everything happens for a reason! Shortly after leaving that company, I was once again brought to the opportunity to become a Maker with AMS and this time I was willing to give it my effort and energy as it was clearly a new company with the promise I was looking for. I want to not only provide for my family, but to be a difference maker in this world. This is my new definition of success! Amy Howard and her company have provided a way to do that in such a beautiful way!
A message from an amazing speaker at launch weekend was to find joy in the sorrow. I recommend to each and every one of you to think about that idea. This past summer was one of the hardest that I have had to face, but in the end I am thankful for those sorrows because they led me to where I am meant to be, twists turns and all!! ❤️ I may not be leaving on a cruise this weekend to rejuvenate my body, but last weekend I went to Memphis where Amy Howard and the amazing people she brought us rejuvenated my soul! I am exactly where I need to be and so very thankful for it!
