Are We Having Fun Yet?
There is so much importance in making your business fun! It should not be “hard” work, but rather “challenging” work. Challenging work is something you want to tackle – something you enjoy and love doing. People will feel your excitement when you have a positive attitude toward your work, and will be more likely to want to join in on what you are doing!
Here are some ideas on how to make this job and opportunity more fun:
Focus on the Right Things
When you are gearing up for a party or makeover, focus on the fun aspects of the job: doing someone’s makeup and seeing her confidence shine through, or being able to have a girl’s night out. Positive feedback brings out confidence in yourself and others.
What we surround ourselves with effects our attitude. Cara was a waitress for years and years before Maskcara. As you can imagine it was difficult work, so she turned to blogging. After a while of being able to blog as her career, Cara discovered that it wasn’t as easy as it looked and began to feel discouraged. She came to the realization that she could create unhappiness in any circumstance and needed to reevaluate the way she was looking at her life. If you are feeling unsatisfied with where you are, switch out of autopilot and change gears for a fresh start!
Make Things Into a Game
Dealing with rejection is a part of this job and it can be hard. Don’t take it personally! Make it into a game. Every “no” gets you closer to a “YES!”.
A “no” isn’t necessarily about you. Cara went to a Norwex party years ago. It was a great party and the hostess did a great job. Despite wanting to purchase a Norwex cloth, Cara literally didn’t have $30 to spend on one.
Cara saying “no” wasn’t a reflection on the girl or the product she was selling – it was entirely due to Cara’s circumstances at the time. In fact, when she had money later on, Cara bought the Norwex cloth. If someone says no, have the attitude of, “Okay, no problem. Next!”
If you don’t take it personally, it takes the pressure off of people. Don’t give a reaction when they tell you no and they will feel your confidence! At the very least, they will feel more comfortable to ask you questions later. Let positivity and lightness shine through!
Enjoy Your Wins!
This happened to Cara just last month when Maskcara hit three million dollars in sales during the month of February! She focused on her gratitude, love, and excitement for what everyone has come together to create.
Even though people may not acknowledge your personal wins, you should always celebrate yourself and the accomplishments you’ve made. Treat yourself – you deserve it!
Don’t Feel Guilty If It’s Fun!
Just because it’s fun doesn’t mean it’s not work! This is a beautiful job and opportunity where you don’t have to feel guilty if you are having fun doing it. If you are strengthening bonds or making the opportunity fun for others, you are building your business and utilizing your time!
Find Your Sweet Spot
There are so many different ways to do this business. It should feel challenging and exciting. If, at the end of the day you are not feeling it, reevaluate! Talk to a close friend, a spouse, your upline or downline. Lean on your Maskcara sisters to make it fun and enjoyable.
You deserve to love what you do. You can have your cake and eat it too so don’t ever settle for less!
