Hello, everyone. My name is Laurie Delk Radecki, and we are going to talk tonight. I started out this training when I was writing my notes to be talking about being adaptable and facing your fears, and then I kinda trailed into some other things, so we’ll see where it leads. But one of the things I wanted to talk about is facing your fears like I remember. you know, as as I was raising my 4 children. I never left them alone. I/we rarely, almost never even went on a date without the kids. We we always kept the kids with us. I never traveled without the kids. We would always do family vacations. I took them with me everywhere. When I started speaking engagements and speaking on stages around the world, I took my children with me. That was my plan. That was how I how I raised them. That was how I chose to do things.
I remember back in 2,013, I was asked to speak on stage, at an event that was on a cruise, and it was right after my kids dad had passed away. I had never been on a cruise before, and i’d always wanted to go on one, but I was always too chicken, and I had actually even won one in a company several years before that, and I gave it away because it was too chicken, because, like hello, the Titanic, I saw it right!But anyway, so this event I was asked to speak at on stage, but it was on a cruise, and I really wanted to go, and I was freaking out, though, and so I asked my youngest son, who was 12 at the time, If he wanted to go on the cruise with mommy, and obviously I knew he couldn’t save me,
But I joked with him, and I said, you know, if it sinks, you know you’ll save me right? You’ll I’ll get me to shore. And But I remember I talked to my travel agent, I talked to the people, other people that were going on the cruise, the leaders of the event that asked me to speak there and drilled everybody about it. They were all like. Oh, it only goes out about 5 miles from shore, and you know it’s a a short cruise, so it’s really stay stays close to land, and I was still paranoid….. but I went, and then I loved it. And then I went on like 3 cruises a year every year after that!It was one thing that, you know one thing, going to events. If you can ever get to an event for a company event, go – because you always grow at them, and you learn other things.
And a lot of times. Events are online and things…. But you’ll still learn more things as you go to events, and as you get around other people that are leaders in the company and things, you’re always going to grow, and especially if it’s something that where you have to face your fears, you’re going to grow at that event or that situation.
I remember, even though I was one of the speakers, At this event I grew so much just from pushing myself through, facing those fears, to get on the cruise and go to this event, and one thing that you know that I told myself in my head like, rather than thinking in my head – what could happen Bad? like what could happen like if we hit an iceberg. I know we weren’t gonna do that because it was like California to Mexico.
But you know thinking about it, you know what if a hole gets in it. What if you know a shark gets you or it sinks, or whatever you get eaten by sharks right?But what GOOD could happen? So whenever I thought those negative thoughts. I decided to replace them with positive thoughts – It Doesn’t work If you just say i’m not going to think about that,….
because your mind’s already going….. So make your mind replace that with something good. So what GOOD could happen? Good out of the situation?
I got to know a lot more leaders in the company. I got trained by the other leaders and the other speakers in the company. I met tons of new people there. I faced my fears of going on the cruise. I found out that I really loved it, and I’ve been on like 20 cruises since then.
So just whenever you think of something negative, just reframe it into something positive and on purpose – What could happen? Good instead of thinking what could happen bad.
Then also use that in your team in your building….What if I could help a 100 people in this company. Right? What if I could help 10 people in this company?
What if I could help a 1,000 people in this company? What if I could help 10,000 people in this company.
You know another event that I spoke at the biggest event that I’ve ever spoke at. It was over 10,000 people in the crowd, and you know, and I had gotten to where I had been on stage
thousands of times at different events. And so I got very comfortable speaking at different events, but this was the biggest one it went from like 5,000 at the one of my other biggest events to over 10,000, and you know I got nervous, but that’s it like. What if I could? What if I could help influence 10,000 people?
So whatever you really want just like, Take the chance because it what could happen? Right? I mean nothing, Probably negative is going to happen. Many things probably positive are going to happen.
If you are thinking that there is a chance also to make like a full time income in this company…. so like I remember when I first started out, and in network marketing, and technically it was where it was doing my doing the own. My own direct sales type business at home my first company with tupperware. I wanted to make an extra 50 to a $100 a month.
I didn’t have to buy my husband, his birthday gift with his own money, right?
so that was my goal. That was my plan, and quickly I ended up getting the van, and long story short……Now, several several years later, here we are.
What if I could make an extra 50 to a $100 a month? Now I’ve made thousands and thousands of dollars a month, and millions in years, and so you never know where it’s going to lead, and especially if you keep reading, If you keep doing trainings, if you keep growing, If if you keep learning.
you’re gonna get better all the time, and that’s gonna lead you to different and more and better opportunities, whether it’s with the same company, or a different company, or whatever. But you’re always going to grow so that’s one thing that you want to do. You want to constantly keep growing.
like with me. One thing that I try to do is I try to help people make better incomes, but also help families, help relationships, help marriages.
help people with their self development, help people with their mindset. When you get all those things, and you work on all those things. Then everything in every area helps to get better as well.
The more you are on like trainings like this, the more you go to other company trainings. The more you learn, the more you will grow, and the more better your life will be, and every single aspect of your life.
One huge thing is communication and respect. That’s with everyone in your life. It’s with your family. It’s with your team.
It’s huge, no matter where, at in any aspect of your life or your business
Drama can and will happen, no matter how much you try to avoid it.
But when it happens, don’t fall, prey to it.
Don’t air your dirty laundry, whether it’s personal or professional. Don’t air it on Facebook, don’t air it in texting to other people. Don’t message it to other people.
It makes a difference how you about it. If you do that, keep it to yourself. Learn and grow through it.
I offer my cell phone to everyone on my team like not just my personal people, but everyone on my team.
I tell people, and I train people, and I ask my leaders to train their people
to go to our team group. Do a search in that group for whatever you’re looking for, because most of the time your answers in the group already.
People, when they join new there’s thousands of posts in there already.
I also tell people go through all the posts. When you have time.
take 30 min, and just go through different posts, like or love it, and that’s that way. You can keep track of what you’ve read already, or what you’ve watched. If it’s a video or checked out, you’ve looked at.
If you Don’t. Find your answer, then post in the group and ask a question.
We have lots of other leaders that we are developing on our team, and they will answer. If I don’t answer it right away, they will hop in there, and they will answer it also.
And then, third, always text your question to whoever your personal sponsor is, if you hadn’t found it in one of those other first 2 ways.
and then, of course the next. If you still don’t get your answer, or don’t get your answer in a timely manner, especially if it’s something important, you know, because sometimes those things happen, then text me your question, and I usually answer in the same thing. I have a life, too, so sometimes I might be tied up with something.
but I do try to answer as quickly as I possibly can.
The only way you lose in the company is, if you quit. So Some people I know like this month, and last month we had lots of promotions on our team, and i’m so happy, so excited for everybody that is promoted on our team.
But you know you can go fast, or you can go slow like I had somebody that was upset that they didn’t get promoted right. Had several people, and had talked to me about that. And the thing is, you know it doesn’t matter how fast you go doesn’t matter how slow you go.
The thing is that you keep moving forward.
You get better personally as well as you grow personally and professionally and financially.
and as long as you keep moving forward and don’t quit.
then you’re going to get better every day, right? So just like the story of the rabbit and the turtle right the turtle still one. It just took him longer to get there.
but the rabbit kind of screwed off and went sideways and different ways and all that stuff. If you keep going forward in that straight line you’re going to get better, and your 5 to 10 year down the road Self is going to thank you today for keeping on moving forward. And it doesn’t matter like I said, how slow, how fast you know.
If you can go faster, of course, always go faster, but lots of people have a lot of stuff going on – just like with me, You know we are in the middle of building another house. We’re in the middle of packing this house, and I watch my grand baby a couple of days a week now, and
so, and i’m remarried now. And so it’s like – I have a life just like a lot of people, right? And so
it depends on how quick or how slow you can go, or how much time you can devote to your company, and different people have different areas. But the thing is as long as you keep moving forward as long as like in our company. You keep doing the balance test. You keep sharing it and keep showing it to people you keep sharing the testimonials.
The easy way is sharing your testimonial, the testimonials on your social media or otherwise into people’s inboxes, or invite them to our testimonial group.
and though these patches sell their self anyway, and then people just ask you about it, and they end up signing up.
