A few days ago I was thinking about what I had personally got out of Jamberry so far. And when I thought about it, it was actually a lot. Yes the end dream is to make enough money to better my families financial situation or change my working hours out of the home, but it doesn't mean I haven't achieved something along the way. We need to enjoy the journey as well as the destination. Chances are we will never get to where we think we're going, but we could possibly end up somewhere better. Here's what Jamberry has brought into my life;
Since joining Jamberry I've been able to renew some friendships from years gone past. Both my sponsor and one of the ladies I have sponsored have been friends in the past. It's not that we were no longer friends, but our lives had moved on and apart from the occasional comment on a post on Facebook, we had very little contact with each other. Now that we have Jamberry in common and want to help each other build our businesses and achieve our goals, those friendships have possibly become stronger than they ever were. And it doesn't matter that they live at the other end of the country or even the world, I know I could contact on either one of them and they'd be a listening ear.
It's not always easy to make new friends, particularly when you get nervous in social situations like I do. And since I've been on maternity leave I've not had as much contact with people as I would have done otherwise. But it's amazing how many people I've met and feel like I could call a friend now and yet I've never actually met them in the flesh. These are made up of people in my upline, other consultants in my team and customers who have bought product from me. I've met so many lovely ladies from all walks of life that I wouldn't have met in any other circumstances and I just love it.
I'm constantly being stretched to step out of my comfort zone to speak to people about Jamberry and to share the product info at in home parties. I've even pushed myself to do Live video stream on Facebook. I know I need to push myself more out of my comfort zone, but I know I've gained more confidence in speaking to people. It's not always about speaking to people about Jamberry, but just speaking to people in general. I can sometimes shy away from talking to people who I don't know too well. But I can tell that since I've started Jamberry I've had more confidence to talk to those people, to say help, ask how their day is going and tell them they look good today. I'm so grateful for that increased confidence because I want to be that kind of person more.
More pride in my appearance
Since having my nails done on a regular basis I've found myself say, oh my nails are done I should really sort my hair out and put a bit of make up on. Now I'm not talking about getting dolled up in your best frock to go to the supermarket. What I'm talking about is taking a bit of pride in the way I look, wanting to look put together rather than throwing the hair up and not bothering with much else. It feels a bit like, if my nails are done I should do the rest of me to match, if that makes any sense.
Ability to give back
I know I have a long way to go and with some hard work and determination I'll aim at getting there. But it's a real blessing to look at what I have gained and achieved along the way. I'm so grateful for the friendships I've built, the courage and confidence I've gained and the ability to give back. If you're interested in learning more about the product or business or have something you are trying to raise money for please get in touch, I'd love to talk and possibly gain a new friend.
