Thankful Thursday- There Is A Lesson In Every Struggle

As you know, I started working with a networking marketing company in late June. The journey has been filled with ups and downs for me. To be honest most of the time I feel like quitting but then I convince myself to stick with it and then I feel like quitting again.

I enjoy the mentorship, personal development and being surrounded by persons going after their dreams. However, the more that I listen, read and learn, the more I think that I’m taking this opportunity the wrong way. All the hype and leadership tools they provide keeps leading me back to something else and it’s not network marketing.

I’m starting to think that this opportunity came to show me what’s possible and reinforce what I already knew I wanted to do. Having to commit time, energy and resources to get things done with them has shown me that I can take that same effort and put it into my dreams. It has also made me realise that working an 8 to 4 job is not a hindrance to my dream but an asset while I work towards my dream. I’ve learned about my weakness and understanding my strengths as well.

Now I know I can commit time to be a full-time content creator and that I can juggle my work, content creator and personal life to get ahead. So I’ve been going back and forth in my head all week between making this business working or focusing on what I want. I prefer to spend the time I was allocating to network marketing into growing as a creator.

Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed the whole endeavour and like their products and the vision they have. But, now I know almost for sure where I should be focusing my time and energy and I don’t think it’s there.

Not the typically gratitude post but I am grateful nonetheless for the opportunity I was granted. Now I know I can give more to my creator life without seeing my job as a hindrance. Now I want to focus on educating myself on what I want to pursue and commit time to that. So thank you Universe for the opportunity and the lesson wrapped in one.

Just a reminder to everyone that not everything you start has to be forever. Sometimes it just might be a lesson to point you in the right direction. So here’s my permission slip to let go of what you’ve been holding on to for the sake of holding on. Accountability and commitment are great but just make sure what you are holding on to is the right thing for you.

In light of that, I intend to have an open discussion this week with the team, most likely tomorrow about my goals. Maybe we will find a middle ground, I do appreciate the mentorship and coaching, and maybe not. Either way, I have to do what’s right for me. I’ll keep you updated.
