You’ve been there many, many times before … asking yourself ‘What if?’ What if there was a way out of what if? You could be asking that one last time. What is your ‘what if?’
What if I were taller, prettier, wealthier, brighter, luckier, bolder, stronger?
I could play basketball, win the beauty contest, be in the inner circle, pass that exam, get the ‘key’ to the combination lock, go on stage, save myself from that lion or stand up to that bully … that controller!
And what if you have been preparing all your life to finally achieve your dream and you think this is the breakthrough … and there is still another wall in front of you.
It’s time to punch a hole in that wall, go around it, climb over it or…
… break it down to get your breakthrough!
What If You’re Frustrated? I Don’t Blame You.
How long has it been for you? You’re not a quitter. You just want to be in …
- To get one foot through the door.
- To be able to afford the price tag.
- To access the combination to the lock.
All of that is to enable you to have the tools to get you from where you are to where you need to be. Your heroic unique identity is a story you need to share to touch and change lives forever.
You’re not trying to jump right into the inner circle. You would if you could, but you’re contented to crawl before you walk. You know that you will get there as you grow.
You will do the work, stay up late, finish the task … while everyone sleeps … finish this article at 2:30 a.m. (Wednesday, January 15, 2020).
“Heights by great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight, but they, while their companions slept were toiling upward in the night.”
What if there was a way out of what if and you never had to look back?
What If After All Your Efforts … This Is It?
You’re all maxed out but no one understands. You hear again, “In order for it to be of value to you, it has to cost you something.” It has, all the way to this point. There’s nothing left … zero!
The only options now are to beg, borrow, or steal. Begging and borrowing already have a big price tag. Stealing has an even bigger one. Plus there’s the matter of integrity. That’s what you stand for.
What now? Another crossroads. That’s where you find yourself … again! Again?!?! Which way will you go?
Let’s face it. Who is going to believe you when you tell them this is going to be your breakthrough based on your track record? Chasing your dream has been your life long mission. Everyone else seems to be achieving theirs.
Lucy just caught the man of her dreams for the 100th time. She never gave up!.
Bill made it to the inner circle. Finally!
Tom. I can’t tell you Tom’s story right now. In fact, he will have to tell you that himself!
No hard feelings Lucy, Bill, and Tom. You did what was right for you.
There is a Way Out … Nothing is Wasted.
Here’s the thing: All your efforts are not in vain. Know that. Know from the depth of your heart that you have been sowing seeds. There is seed, time, and harvest.
First, you spend time preparing the soil before planting the seeds. You sweat profusely while you toil.
Then there’s time when you water, nurture, etc. while you wait.
Next comes the harvest! How long does it take? That depends on what you planted. Everything develops at a different rate.
Your investments, struggle, and tears have not been wasted. They have contributed to the growth and development of your dream for the time of your abundant harvest.
The universe is centered around sowing and reaping, seedtime and harvest, the seasons of life, a cycle, what goes around comes around.
Take stock of everything you have done. What is the number one thing you desire to do above everything else? Start with that, stay focused, and pursue it relentlessly.
If you want to make more money in less time with more magic so you can take your message to the world …
What If This Is What It Still Looks Like?
In your hand is a microphone. In front of you is a stage. What are you waiting for? It’s your time to show the world what you’re made of. You have courage.
Maya Angelou said it best. That’s one of the greatest things you can have … courage.
In Exodus 4:2, Moses was asked, “What do you have in your hand?” He saw ONLY a rod. He already had everything inside of him to do the task ahead. He was wired for that …
… and so are you. What’s in your hand?
If like me, you have poured out everything you had and more to get to the next level only to come to another brick wall, this is not the end.
Go back to the drawing board. Be creative.
Your journey may not have led you to take the Greyhound bus from Greenville, South Carolina to Newark, New Jersey, then a train and taxi to Secaucus, NJ, to attend the most life-changing professional event of your life.
You may not have had the opportunity to experience a combination of Fun, Aspirational, Goddess, and Zeus energies in a room with hundreds of professionals, some of whom have already made it to the inner circle.
This is where the story takes a turn (Wednesday, February 27, 2020):
Here is my reality, my story to tell it just the way it is … I publish this story in its original entirety on January 15, 2020, as a sales letter to the next level of Mastery on this journey. It was necessary to withdraw the post due to the brick wall … another one I’ve decided to go around!
You see, I made the journey mentioned above. There, I was given a microphone and a stage so its impossible to turn back, despite the brick wall. On this platform, my website where my voice is powerful, I am taking it to the next level.
I got a taste of what it looks like to stare fear in the face and say, “It’s over for you. I now have the confidence and exposure to not doubt how high I can soar.” I dug a grave for fear and have ensured that its shadow of death will not hold me back.
This new confidence has enabled me to set up sales meetings (interviews) in an industry I never dreamed of venturing into on a huge scale … sales. Out of six meetings, two didn’t go forward, two I eliminated because of the necessity to travel out of town for training (been there, done that with nothing left to make it there).
I had to choose between the other two, and I have. We came to an agreement formation and merged ecosystems. There is a cost involved to take it to the next level here also.
The point is I am prepared to take on a challenge that I believe will strengthen the determination I have to go around a brick wall and keep moving forward.
For years I’ve been selling my network marketing products with little success. I love and use the products and talked about them with integrity, but I didn’t want to seem pushy. Sales can be tough! Now I know I was built to turn up the volume with confidence.
Just because you continue to face obstacles, it doesn’t mean all hope is lost. It’s a part of your story, your heroic unique identity. Use it as a stepping stone to get to the next level. Remember you have to be hungry to keep going.
Step out on a limb and show up wherever the opportunity takes you to make a breakthrough. Continue to merge ecosystems wherever you go … make it your mission. That’s why you’re here. Have frictionless sales meetings ending in agreement formations!
Putting it All Together.
What if there was a way out of what if? There is!
I don’t blame you for being frustrated. You’ve earned the right to be.
What do you get after all your efforts? Another brick wall.
You have invested, toiled, sweated blood, jumped through hoops to get to the next level. What do you have to show for it? Tenacity.
Absolutely nothing you have done up to this point is wasted. There is a harvest! You may be asking yourself when will all this happen or maybe you are already reaping a tremendous harvest. Thank you for taking the time to stop by and read my story here or see what I do on another platform.
So, this is what it looks like …
At this point, I have no shame in not getting to what I had anticipated as the next level. I have moved on to another level, as unexpected as it seemed. One lesson I’ve learned is that my mentors are not embarrassed to promote who they are and what they do. They have no shame, and they promote each other.
Until, and even after someone sees it fit to promote you, take a leap of faith and do something for yourself. Some will support you, others won’t. So What?!
