Early in 2016, I wrote a blog post about putting my Arbonne business on the backburner for a number of reasons [ read post ]. The biggest reason being was that I needed time to discover me and gain confidence in myself. I had no idea at the time that it wasn’t really in need of self-confidence, but Jesus confidence.
After nearly a year of watching all my Arbonne friends and family grow their own businesses, seeing all the new people starting and getting to the top, and the personal growth, God tapped me on the shoulder and told me that it’s time to jump back in.
I was thrilled! I immediately jumped in with a new outlook on life, a confidence I didn’t know existed, and faith that God had my back on this one. Nobody was going to stop me this time!
But then something familiar started happening. I started to notice that I was doing the same things as I did before – put Arbonne ahead of my family, making it my whole life instead of just the thing I did. I started to panic a little. I started to think that maybe God tapping me on my shoulder was actually in my own head and I just wanted it so badly that I made myself believe God was pushing me.
Everything I thought of that maybe I could do instead of Arbonne wasn’t leading me to the dreams and goals I set out for my family. God has shown me some HUGE things that He needs me to do. Like, REALLY FRIGGIN’ BIG. I started to believe that without a Master’s Degree or bazillion years of experience, I wasn’t going to fulfill His destiny for me.
So, I prayed for wisdom – How do I “do” Arbonne truly in the nooks and in the crannies of my life. He said to focus on the simple things in my life in order of importance:
It’s been a few months since I decided that I’m really going to do this and my view, my heart, my way of thinking about this is totally different. Like, 180° type of different. I’ve decided to believe that I can achieve (Cecilia Stoll, our top income earner said that, and boy does it hold up) because with God as my guide how can I fail?
Whether you’ve been in Arbonne for a long time, or you just got started, or you’re thinking about starting it, just know that no matter where you are on your journey – Arbonne journey and life journey – there will certainly be times of doubt. I believe it’s healthy to doubt yourself a little – you’re a human, you’re going to screw things up. It’s, like, our jam! It’s what we do – screw stuff up! But don’t doubt God or His mighty plan for you. <3
