“When your heart speaks, take good notes”,is something I heard someone say before and feel is so true.
I really believe that when you dedicate your business to helping others, you are on the way to so many successes, as well as so many good feelings.
You will know when you are truly sharing and focusing on others and not yourself. You will not change how you feel about sharing with the next person based on what happened with the previous person. When you share, it is important not to pre-judge or leave anyone out. Decide, “I will be happy when I am sharing no matter what anyone says to me”.
I am so thankful to have my own business. Are you?
Demonstrate this thankful feeling and don’t just say it. Be on a mission to share everywhere. Have you looked at the Tracker a tool to help you with sharing success? Here are a few sharing tips:
When someone asks, “How are you”, be ready to paint some pictures and say, “I have been great. Thanks so much for asking. In fact, I am so excited about my business. I have my own business with… Have you ever had an experience with us? I know you are not here to hear about my business. I am so excited to share everywhere but I know it is important to follow up at a more appropriate time. Would you enjoy hearing more about it at an appropriate time?”
If they say,” yes”, than change the subject and focus on anything other than your business. Then follow up at an appropriate time.
If they say, “No, I am not interested”, then say, “ Thanks for being honest with me. I am so glad that you felt you could be. That is so important to our relationship as cousins.” (Friends, etc.)
Appreciate all the people you come into contact with while you are out shopping, at the post office, anywhere where someone helps you.
Say, “I really appreciate your customer service today. In fact that is something I focus on in my business too. Are you familiar with company…?
Then say, “I know you are not here to hear about my business. I am so excited to share everywhere but really like to talk more about it at appropriate times. Would you enjoy hearing more about it at an appropriate time?”
If they say,” yes”, than ask, “Would you feel comfortable giving me your name and phone number? Whether they say yes or no, be sure to change the subject and focus on anything other than your business. Then follow up at an appropriate time. If they say, “No, I am not interested”, then say,” Thanks for being honest with me. I am so glad that you felt you could be.
It is really important to make a decision to share in case someone needs you versus only wanting to share because you have a need for him or her.
Believe there are a lot of people just waiting for you to find them. You find them by sharing with everyone and not letting anyone saying “no”, halt your mission in helping others. Hearing someone say, "No", will never keep you from success. Not wanting to hear it will.
Thanks you so much for being a part of my life and allowing me to be a part of yours.
I know that all of you continue to help give me strength as well as giving me the courage to go on with my mission almost six years later of helping others even in constant pain. I am so thankful that I have discovered that you can be happy even in pain and challenging situations.
Make the decision to be happy… it works! Yes, it even works when you have been hit by a truck!
