What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail? I took this picture on the last night we were on #Kona 🌴at the Emerald Extravaganza. I stood there thinking about how far this team of ours had come #IMAGINEplexus . I thought about all of the lives that had been changed. And then I thought about the people who quit too soon. Then about the people who have come back 😍👏🏻. I thought about how after 7 days of using Plexus I called Brooke @7surferz to say it wasn't working, and I was quitting. I'm so glad she didn't let me. I thought about how she believed in me before I believed in myself. Before Plexus, I had convinced myself that network marketing was for the people that couldn't really make it. I had judged them so harshly for so long, that i spent the first 3 months of sharing Plexus ashamed and worrying about what people thought. i literally woke up every day and said "i won't post today, and i won't message anyone" bc i was so embarrassed and ashamed i was involved in network marketing. i felt so foolish, but I couldn't deny what it had done for me, and then I started to see it do it for people that I KNEW😂. i remember just wishing that it didn't have to be network marketing. like WHY did these products have to be with network marketing? why couldn't i just get them at the store? why did i have to be a sell out now "selling something"? i think the biggest thing was that i had been so judgmental of everyone around me that was selling things, and now in MY mind i was under my own judgement. that was more painful than anything. it was believing all of the things i had thought about everyone else now about myself. we are so hard on ourselves as people. it is a struggle to be kind to ourselves. don't eat that, it's bad for you. you're not #healthy enough. you're not a patient enough mother. You fall short here, and that other person does it better. it's not like we're necessarily meaning to be unkind to ourselves, but we know we are usually our own worst critic. this last year has been full of personal growth, but what I always come back to is that this thing called Plexus has changed lives, and there's nothing to be embarrassed about in that 🙌🏻.
