By the time this posts, I will be on the road headed for Columbus, OH! Yes, Ohio! It is that time of year again – Thirty One’s National Conference.
This year I am hitting the road with my mom and one of my team members. I am excited that my mom is joining me this year. She has been a HUGE supporter of my business so it will be fun to share “my pink bubble” with her.
In Columbus, I will be re-connecting with old friends, and getting a chance to make some new friends. It is definitely more than just a “purse thing“. It is a sisterhood that can not be explained in a few short words. The speakers for this year are going to ROCK the house.
I had a contest on my Facebook page to help me figure out which “hat” would be this year’s trademark – which one do you think won or do you think I went out and got a new one?
So what does this all have to do with organizing or de-cluttering or making a difference? The things that I’m taking with me to conference are the same things that you should be taking with you when you step out of your comfort zone….
So, here is what else I am taking…
A POSITIVE Attitude! Despite anything that may happen today or all week I want to attract other consultants & leaders to share our strengths, hopes and experiences. They are ONLY attracted to other positive attitudes. Remember the Law of Attraction?
A DESIRE to learn something from every person that I meet. I will be taking LOTS of notes and lots of screen shots since the memory isn’t what it used to be.
Patience Patience Patience – there are going to be thousands of us there along with the Speakers, Home Office staff, and everyone else that it takes to put on a Conference. There will be crowds. There will be lines. There will be waits. I am going to use these as an opportunity to meet some new friends, or shoot a text to a hostess or potential team member and share my excitement!
What I am NOT bringing to National Conference:
Envy – while I set my goals high and aspire to be a better consultant and leader, I will NOT compare my journey of where I am or where I am NOT to someone else’s. The comparison game and this inner gremlins can spoil everything, if we let them.
A BAD Attitude ~ We ALL have crazy things happen to us and an opportunity to complain… do NOT do it! It ruins the fun for everyone else around and they will NOT want to be around you!
My Other Hats of Mom, Wife, and Housekeeper! This is a time for me to fill my cup. A time to increase my knowledge and bond with my other “sisters”. Yes, I will miss my hubby, but I can concentrate and focus better if I’m not worrying about everyone or everything else.
How many times have you stepped out of your comfort zone and NOT brought a desire to fill your cup and a positive attitude? When we try something new or different, we need to leave the inner gremlins of doubt, fear, envy and comparison home. It is when we bring them along that the results are not what we hoped for.
Share your best tip for being successful when you step out of your comfort zone?
Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
