Since starting my beauty business “side gig” back in June, l kept hearing the words ‘Personal Development’ pop up around me and a few people had mentioned to me that if I wanted to succeed in Network Marketing, I needed to work on my Personal Development. At this time, I’d never heard of personal development before or had a clue what it was all about so I googled it……….
Knowledge is power
I was already making goals, selling product in my business and was really beginning to get the hang of network marketing but then I’d attend another live training to hear more friends banging on about how much personal development has helped them and how important it’s been to their journey ……so I finally decided to give ye oldie personal development a go and dove head first into a book that would help me understand things a little clearer and was recommended The Secret, by Rhonda Byrne
‘The Secret’ is based mainly on The Law Of Attraction , which claims that thoughts can change the world directly. It talks about how powerful your brain is and if you think it and believe it, you will receive it.
Now, I wouldn’t go as far as saying “this book changed my life forever” like a few people I’ve met HAVE said, however I liked this whole positive outlook on life and found it very interesting.
Could believing in your own success really bring you success ?
I’ve been ‘doing life’ now for 30 years!….I’ve been using my brain to think in a certain way all these years and have managed to achieve a fair amount of success over this time but to NOW teach my brain to think and achieve in a different way is proving to be pretty hard to just….do!
After reading The Secret and speaking to LOTS of people who follow the Law Of Attraction and have had incredible results , it’s something that, as a once skeptic, I’m actually starting to believe in and really enjoy.
Since reading The Secret, I have also read Get Rich Lucky Bitch! by Denise Duffield-Thomas which talks about how to manifest your money goals, overcome your money blocks and have the right mindset. There are so many woman who have read this book and written reviews about how they had taken Denise’s advice and found them-self’s amazed at the outcome including my very own cousin who was the one who gave the book to me!
I am currently reading the book You Are A Badass, by Jen Sincero and this one is by far my favourite….It’s brilliant, informative and sassy! Jen teaches you how to: “Identify and change the self-sabotaging beliefs and behaviors that stop you from getting what you want and create a life you totally love.”
Benefits of Meditation 🧘🏼♀️
I’m learning about how important it is to surround yourself with positive/ like-minded people, and I’ve even dabbled in a bit of meditation too! (otherwise known as sitting quietly and staring into space!)
A few minutes of meditation a day can bring so many benefits into your life and I’m slowly beginning to learn how to calm and focus my own mind (which if you know me…you’ll understand how much of an achievement this is!😂) and I’d highly recommend that everyone gives it a wee go!
A few benefits of meditation backed by science:
•Improves depression symptoms
• Reducing stress levels
•Develop a positive mood
•Develop concentration levels
•Develop healthy sleep patterns
Anyway….It’s all fine and well reading facts and success stories…but my next step will be implementing this particular way of thinking to manifest my dreams to a successful business and future that I know I deserve!…..Bring it on universe!😀💪🏼🌎
