#Trust30 Prompt

Liz Danzico – Today

Your genuine action will explain itself, and will explain your other genuine actions. Your conformity explains nothing. The force of character is cumulative. – Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self-Reliance
If ‘the voyage of the best ship is a zigzag line of a hundred tracks,’ then it is more genuine to be present today than to recount yesterdays. How would you describe today using only one sentence? Tell today’s sentence to one other person. Repeat each day.

Today was an extremely productive day; I feel accomplished!

Dare to be bold by Matt Cheuvront

Our arts, our occupations, our marriages, our religion, we have not chosen, but society has chosen for us. We are parlour soldiers. We shun the rugged battle of fate, where strength is born. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Next to Resistance, rational thought is the artist or entrepreneurs worst enemy. Bad things happen when we employ rational thought, because rational thought comes from the ego. Instead, we want to work from the Self, that is, from instinct and intuition, from the unconscious.

A child has no trouble believing the unbelievable, nor does the genius or the madman. Its only you and I, with our big brains and our tiny hearts, who doubt and overthink and hesitate.” - Steven Pressfield, Do the Work

The idea of “being realistic” holds all of us back. From starting a business or quitting a job to dating someone who may not be our type or moving to a new place – getting “real” often means putting your dreams on hold.

Today, let’s take a step away from rational thought and dare to be bold. What’s one thing you’ve always wanted to accomplish but have been afraid to pursue? Write it down. Also write down the obstacles in your way of reaching your goal. Finally, write down a tangible plan to overcome each obstacle.
The only thing left is to, you know, actually go make it happen. What are you waiting for?

I want to be a successful pink Cadillac Mary Kay Consultant. 

My Obstacles:
I don't have a car. 
I moved to a new area, and do not have customers.
I do not have the marketing supplies with my new information. 
I am out of the MK loop.
I am afraid to start over and fail.

My Plan:
I will just have to work my schedule around when I can use Zach's car, until I have my own Mary Kay car. My plan for gaining new customers in the new area has been to leave my business card any where and every where. Also I have been asking the new friends I am making if they would consider having a MK party. I have been watching the prices on marketing tools, and plan to buy some business cards on Friday. Vistaprint is giving 500 business cards for ten dollars! I need to call around and find where the Mary Kay group here in my town meets up for weekly meetings. I know just getting back into a group would help motivate me, and help me with my confidence. The support system that comes with Mary Kay is so amazing I want those connections!

You can often find business cards for even less than that - be sure to google vistaprint specials. Good luck!
