“A goal properly set is halfway reached.” Wise words spoken by one of our nation’s great leaders, Abraham Lincoln, and they still ring true today. Setting your goals is the first step that you need to take in order to reach them, and sometimes the most difficult part is figuring out what we really want, and more importantly- how to get there. Really assessing your needs and the needs of your family, along with having a plan on how you will go about reaching your goal- is crucial.
Why am I choosing October to speak to you about goal setting? Well, for starters, SeneGence welcomed over 1,200 new Distributors in September during Free Sign ups, and we are so excited for them to begin their journey to success! Secondly, we are in the very beginning of autumn here in the United States, and it is an excellent time to either set or reevaluate our goals, because 2014 will soon be coming to a close. I love this time of year, when the leaves change to gold and red, and the weather becomes a little crisper- it puts a pep in my step! October is the time to resolve to finish out your 2014 year strong, and begin to set yourself up for great success in 2015.
So, the first step for reaching a goal is to clearly understand what that goal is- whether it includes earnings (Downline commissions and sales income), a new car (the Ford or Cadillac SeneCar), travel (LIPS or SeneStar trips) or more free time to spend with your family. All of these you can achieve through SeneGence-these goals are yours for the taking. To achieve these benefits and rewards, ask yourself “In what areas do I want to improve?” Perhaps the answers lie in simple money-making activities such as:
- Booking- demos throughout the week (rule: schedule 5 hold 3)
- Holding Demos- showcase the product (use the Beauty Book Distributor and Glamour Demo Guides)
- Directing- by booking Demo Guests as future Hostesses of their own Demo and new Distributor Demos as their own launches and trainings
Then ask yourself, “What actions can I take to make these improvements and maximize my return?” Begin with those that are at your fingertips:
- Attend SeneU at the corporate office or take SeneU Online, log onto the webinar trainings every Tuesday and Thursday, attend your local team trainings, attend PIT Stop Glam it Up in January and Seminar 2014 in April
- Explore your Back Office- it is filled with training and informational resources for you
- Get on Facebook and join your team’s training Group, and “like” SeneGence International for daily tips and updates
“Am I making progress towards my long-term, yearly goals?” Long-term must be measured in short term (monthly) increments. Use the Weekly Summary Sheet found in the Back Office to stay directed and on track. Commit your report weekly to your upline- they care about your success.
Finally ask, “How should I alter, adjust and fine tune my course?” It’s been said that a goal not written is simply a wish. So outline a professional path, on paper. Use the Downline Goal Setting Sheet in the Back Office to make sure you write down your goals and are always keeping your progress in mind.
Reaching goals takes forethought, agreements, commitments, understanding, and execution. But when you do reach your goals, you will be enriching your life and the lives of those surrounding you. It’s all worth it in the end, when you can look at what you’ve accomplished, whether for yourself or for your family, and say “I did it!”
Spend some time this month to define your goals for 2014 and share your dreams with those close to you, and remember my Lovelies, always choose to live life in love and abundance…then work for it!
I am excited to spend time with my Leaders this weekend at Leaders Conference 2014! Keep an eye out for a blog post to follow, recounting all of the wonderful things we learned and did.
