This past weekend I was in Orlando, Florida for my company’s Summer National Convention. I had a wonderful time. I met so many new people and connected with people I only talked with on the phone. I ran into people I had met at other events yet we talked like it was yesterday. The convention opened up my possibilities. I saw first hand so many people whose lives have been changed by taking a chance and going for greatness. Here are some of the things I learned from Convention.
To make a difference: Be Different. If you continue to perform “Average”; you will be average. You must perform at a high level to get a high result. Go all out and BE ALL IN! If you do; DO IT!!!
Treat it like a business and work it like a job. This is your future you are working on. Don’t take a day off and expect to get paid. It’s too early. Go out there and talk to people. Get out there and push yourself. You can rest later.
Be authentic with people. Don’t be fake. Be sincere with others and help where you can. This profession is to help each other grow and learn for the future.
Control your emotions, control your attitude and the more positive you are, the more you will attract. Positive Attracts while negative repels. Be the attraction you desire.
Speedier the Leader; Speedier the Group. You set the Pace for your team. If you talk to 2 people a month, they will also. If you show your business 4 days a week; they will know to show it 4 days a week.
SINALOA: Safety In Numbers And Law Of Averages. Remember, If you want more milk, don’t squeeze harder…Get more Cows. The more people you talk with, the better your outcome. If you get 1 out of 10 people to sign, then you need to talk with 50 people to get 5. Get out and meet people and show your tools.
The things I learned at convention can’t compare to the feeling and belief I now have for my company. The confidence I have for us and our resources has been hugely increased. The pride I now have in what we have to offer is through the roof. If your company has a convention; GO! You will see your belief increase, you will feel your confidence rise and your loyalty to your friends and family in your business deepen.

I’m going to Convention! Really I am. I am fortunate to have a wonderful friend and ally who is looking out for me and she has made it possible for me to get to Orlando, Florida for our Convention. With work and scheduling, I’m going to fly down on Thursday night and fly home on Sunday evening. I’m really looking forward to going. I need a recharge and at the same time I need to learn. I want to increase my knowledge so I can reach out and help my friends and neighbors. I know the local businesses and families have so much to gain from my service. I also will be able share the way to make more money for people that work hard and help others.
The Convention is a place to learn and reinvigorate from our group and team. Don’t take this lightly. Remember the old fashioned church revival? That was a way for like minded people to get together and rekindle their faith and belief. The Convention is the same thing. We come together and remind ourselves why we are here and why we help others and to prove to each other, It’s Possible.
My company uses it’s Convention to show us all the new savings we offer and more ways to share our stories. It’s gives the new blood like me the chance to rub elbows with the big leaders and movers and shakers that lead the way and stand as an example for the rest of us. As they say, If you want to go to the top, you have to go to convention. I’m going and when I get back. I will start my 90 plan. I’ll see you at the top.
“Admit it. You aren’t like them. You’re not even close. You may occasionally dress yourself up as one of them, watch the same mindless television shows as they do, maybe even eat the same fast food sometimes. But it seems that the more you try to fit in, the more you feel like an outsider, watching the “normal people” as they go about their automatic existences. For every time you say club passwords like “Have a nice day” and “Weather’s awful today, eh?”, you yearn inside to say forbidden things like “Tell me something that makes you cry” or “What do you think deja vu is for?”. Face it, you even want to talk to that girl in the elevator. But what if that girl in the elevator (and the balding man who walks past your cubicle at work) are thinking the same thing? Who knows what you might learn from taking a chance on conversation with a stranger? Everyone carries a piece of the puzzle. Nobody comes into your life by mere coincidence. Trust your instincts. Do the unexpected. Find the others…”
I turned 41 on the 5th of July. I’m sorry for the long absence. With the 4th of July holiday festivities, time off from work and my 41st birthday, I’ve been quite busy. This weekend was interesting. We had rain every day except Sunday that caused my original plans to be canceled. So what did I do? I did something else. I was productive. I did clean up and I worked around the house. I then called some contacts and got myself moving. I ended up spending my birthday with a houseful of relatives who I don’t get to spend enough time with. I made the best of what I had at the time. Did I do everything I could have done? No, but I’m not going to beat myself up over. I enjoyed what was happening and I didn’t look at the negative. So many times, we look at what might have been and judge our situations by what we think should have happened. But, things are better for us when we look at what is and look at how things are. Focus on reality. Don’t let yourself say “If Only…”, this causes us to second guess yourself and dwell on “Might Have Been’s”.
This has been a short article, but I want you to remember, life is too short to have “If Only’s” and “Might Have Been’s”. Keep going, make things happen and don’t give up.
