Let's love every day of our lives!

by: Dioni Marie Morales, National Sales Manager

Over the weekend a thought came to me, one that I would guess not a lot of people have: “I can’t wait for Monday.”  Yes, it’s true ... I was actually thinking that! I like routine in general, and I especially like my routine.  I like to wake up early, take my girls to school, come home, have breakfast, check email, contact some of you, make beds, work out, get my girls, so on and so on. I really enjoy my lifestyle, what I do with my life, and I feel sorry for those who do not.

Just yesterday my husband showed me a post on Facebook that said: “If you hate Mondays, then you definitely hate your job.” At first glance, this is humorous.  But there really is a lot of truth in this statement, and it’s actually far from funny. There are 52 Mondays in a year, and if you hate Mondays it’s very probable that you hate the rest of the weekdays too. How can someone live like that for the rest of their lives until retirement? Is that really how anyone wants to live?

How about loving all days of the week? What will it take for you to love ALL the days of your life?

I know that it starts with taking control of your time and finances. If you spend time only doing what you love, with people who you love to spend time with, that would probably make you happy, right?  And then comes the finances.  I recently heard Howard Buffet (Warren Buffet’s son) in an interview talking about his world contributions and he said: “Money is only part of the equation, but you need money to do good.” If money wasn’t such a necessity, I am sure that you would not be in a job that you did not enjoy.  You wouldn’t be hating Mondays and only counting the days each week until Friday, in order to have two days of so called “freedom.”  If you only didn't need to worry about money, you would be able to do all the things that make you happy.  Right?

If you are not loving all seven days of the week, what can you do about it? Well, this industry gives you a unique opportunity to take control of your time and finances. You only work when you want to, with who you want to.  And of course, it can give you the financial ability to achieve all of your dreams.  I am not saying that you do not have to do what it takes to be successful, of course you do.  But the difference is that it’s on your terms, and unlike a regular job where you do not really control what you get paid, in direct sales you surely do.

So let’s all make the decision today to take the steps necessary to build our direct sales career, because that will allow us to absolutely fall in love with every single day of our lives!

The only missing piece is YOU!

by: Dioni Morales, National Sales Manager

We all do it… wherever we live, whatever we do for a living.  We get in a routine.  We get used to certain surroundings, certain circumstances and it becomes our comfort zone. Whether we enjoy it, or even if we don’t and know that there must be something better out there, it’s just easy to stay with what we know.  Sometimes it is very hard to move on to the unknown.
When you think about it, this makes no sense at all. For example, let’s say we are not happy with our level of fitness.  We know that all we have to do is get a pair of tennis shoes on and do something about it, so why is it that we just don’t get around to do it?  Why is it that we look for any possible excuse?  Well, we do the same sort of procrastination in many aspects of our lives, including our financial future. We know that we have to do something to change our future.  We know that we are tired of waking up early and working for a boss.  We know that we want to start saving money for our children’s education, or for that trip that we’ve always dreamed of.  We know that we need to do something different.  Why is it so hard to just do it?

I’ve been thinking about this and came across this quote from Laird Hamilton: “If you just get out of your own way… It is amazing what will come to you.” Many times in my life I have been dreading something, and yet once I just come around to doing it, I look back and cannot believe not only how easy it was to do, but also what I had been missing by postponing it.

Some of you have never done direct sales before.  Some of you have and know exactly what it takes to be successful, but perhaps you find yourself in that comfort zone, and cannot seem to find the way to start again. This industry is one in which people have had immense success, as we’ve talked about many times.  But it only works if YOU do what you have to do.  There is absolutely no other way it will work.

Vessel offers you a perfect combination of great, innovative products and a very competitive and rewarding compensation plan. We have given you a Road Map (look for the Training Tab in our website, vesselscentsofstyle.com) of what to do, when to do it and how to do it.  And we’re just a phone call away to support you in any way possible. In other words, we have given you many tools, many pieces of the puzzle ... there’s only one crucial piece missing, and that’s YOU. You are the only person who can make it happen.  You are in charge of your success!  So get out of your comfort zone, talk to people about the business, show our beautiful jewelry to everyone, plan a Home Party.  Soon enough you will see how easy it comes to you, and very soon you will realize all that happens when you "just do it!"
